Derrick Henry Not On Final Week 3 Injury Report

Friday, September 22, 7:08 PM

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (toe) put in a full practice on Friday and was removed from the final Week 3 injury report. Henry was limited on Wednesday before sitting out for rest purposes on Thursday. The 29-year-old star running back was never really in danger of missing this Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, so fantasy managers should leave him in their starting lineups everywhere. Through two games, the Browns defense has been stingy against the run, but Henry is no ordinary RB. He handled 25 carries for 80 yards and his first touchdown of the year in the Week 2 overtime win over the Los Angeles Chargers, adding three catches on four targets for an extra 15 yards through the air.

Christian McCaffrey Scores Touchdown In 12th Straight Game

Friday, September 22, 1:04 AM

San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey tied Jerry Rice's all-time 49ers record by scoring a touchdown for the 12th straight game in Thursday night's dominant win against the New York Giants. McCaffrey, 27, finished the night with 85 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. He also caught all five of his targets for 34 yards receiving. In a juicy matchup against a New York defense that had struggled to stop the run, McCaffrey was his usual self, combining elusiveness with power. His fantasy day was limited by head coach Kyle Shanahan keeping his promise to get other running backs involved, though his 23 touches matched last week's. He has plenty of time to rest up before an October 1 date at home against the Arizona Cardinals.
