Derrick Henry Has Low Floor Against Bengals

Thursday, September 28, 1:03 PM

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 11 times for just 20 yards against the Cleveland Browns last week. The team's offensive line was dominated by the Browns' defensive line, and he never got anything going. The former rushing champion has been out-snapped by Tyjae Spears in two of his three games thus far, and his floor is as low as it has been in his career. The Bengals have allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points to running backs through three weeks, so Henry could be at risk of posting another dud performance. All that said, he's still a must-start for now, especially since fantasy managers selected him early in drafts. If the Titans can reach the red zone, he will continue to have command of the goal line role. His weekly performances are worth monitoring closely moving forward.

David Montgomery Finds End Zone Three Times

Thursday, September 28, 11:27 PM

Detroit Lions running back David Montgomery was questionable to face the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football. The 26-year-old suited up, and he delivered a big-time performance for fantasy managers who rolled the dice on him. He rushed 32 times for 121 yards and three touchdowns and caught two passes for 20 yards in the win. He continues to be the clear lead back for Detroit and is a must-start fantasy option moving forward, regardless of matchup.
