Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (toe) missed practice on Thursday after he was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday. King Henry's absence from Thursday's practice was a combination of his toe injury and rest purposes, but fantasy managers shouldn't be worried at all that he's in danger of missing a Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. As long as the 29-year-old is back at practice on Friday, he should be a must-start in all fantasy lineups on Sunday. Through the first two games of 2023, Henry has 40 carries for 143 yards (3.6 yards per carry) and a touchdown, adding five catches on seven targets for 71 additional yards.

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has rushed 40 times for 143 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 71 yards through two weeks of the 2023 NFL season. His efficiency (3.6 yards per carry) leaves a lot to be desired thus far, but he continues to be a must-start option given his hefty workload. He was limited at practice with a toe injury early in the week heading into the matchup with the Cleveland Browns, but the 29-year-old will likely be given a limited practice schedule all season long. Cleveland looks like it has a fierce defense, but even a relatively healthy Henry must always be locked into fantasy lineups.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks has just seven targets through two games, catching five of them for 94 yards. He delivered a 70-yard chunk play in the win over the Los Angeles Chargers last week but still didn't deliver a spike week for fantasy football. Until his targets see a dramatic uptick, he's tough to trust in fantasy lineups. Fantasy managers in deep leagues might be forced into starting him at the flex spot, but he faces a worrisome matchup in Week 3. The Cleveland Browns allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to wideouts through the first two weeks of the season, and the Titans' passing offense is far from matchup-proof. Proceed with caution with Burks.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown will go on the road to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3 on Monday night. It has been a slow start for the Eagles' top target. Through two weeks, Brown has just 11 receptions for 108 scoreless yards. Meanwhile, teammate DeVonta Smith has 11 receptions for 178 yards and two touchdowns. This matchup against Tampa seems like the perfect situation to apply grease to the squeaky wheel in Week 3 for Brown and the Eagles. The Buccaneers have struggled to stop top pass catchers the past two weeks, allowing Justin Jefferson to gain 150 yards in Week 1 and DJ Moore to go for over 100 yards last week. After being visibly upset on the sideline last week about his lack of involvement, expect Brown to see a heavy target share in Week 3. Consider the 26-year-old a top 10 option.

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (toe) finds himself on the Week 3 injury report, but he was able to put in a limited practice. Henry must have picked up the toe injury in the Week 2 overtime win over the Los Angeles Chargers, but it doesn't seem like anything that should keep him from playing in Week 3 on the road against the Cleveland Browns. The 29-year-old All-Pro played 46 of 65 offensive snaps on Sunday and saw 25 carries for 80 yards and a touchdown. King Henry also added three receptions for 15 yards. Rookie backup Tajae Spears could eventually see more work next to Henry as the season progresses, but as long as Henry is healthy and active, he'll be a must-start RB1 in fantasy lineups.
