  • Titans' Derrick Henry: Met with resistance
    By RotoWire Staff

    Henry rushed for 56 yards on 18 carries during Sunday's 20-17 win over the Texans. He also completed an eight-yard pass during the contest. After pulling ahead early with some trickery, the Titans seemed content to play it safe through most of Sunday. That strategy can help explain why it was tough sledding for Henry, but it doesn't change the fact that things haven't looked good early. He's averaging just 2.9 yards per carry thus far this season. Full judgement should probably be withheld until he gets a full game with a healthy Marcus Mariota (elbow), who has been held out since midway through Week 1.

  • Henry rushed 10 times for 26 yards and caught his only target for five more in Sunday's 27-20, Week 1 loss to Miami. Henry failed to find any rhythm in a game that was delayed on multiple occasions by lightning storms. Conversely, fellow Titans running back Dion Lewis was the team's most impressive offensive player, with 110 scrimmage yards and a touchdown. Henry will need to step things up moving forward or risk losing an even greater share of snaps to Lewis. Quarterback Marcus Mariota left this game with an elbow injury, and any extended Mariota absence would mean bad news for Tennessee's entire offense.

  • Titans' Derrick Henry: Fails to impress
    By RotoWire Staff

    Henry rushed five times for 12 yards during Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers. The entire Titans first-team offense was unable to get much of anything going before being pulled in the second quarter. While Henry was no exception, the bigger worry for him has to be the fact that fellow tailback Dion Lewis finished the day with more touches and total yardage. This committee approach to the backfield may very well prove to be a wise move for Tennessee's long-term outlook in real life, but it also has the potential to create many headaches for fantasy owners all year long.

  • Henry rushed three times for seven yards and secured his only target for seven yards in the Titans' 30-14 preseason loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday. The second-year back saw limited action for the second straight week, matching his number of rushing touches from last week's opener against the Packers. Henry is slated for ample volume as the Titans' lead back during the coming season, so there's not much inclination on the part of head coach Mike Vrabel to overwork him during the exhibition slate. However, Henry should see an uptick in playing time during next Saturday night's "dress rehearsal" game against the Steelers in preparation for the regular-season opener.

  • Titans' Derrick Henry: Ready for outside zone
    By RotoWire Staff

    Henry said the new Tennessee offense is built around outside-zone running plays, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports. Henry isn't doing much more than stating the obvious, considering Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur has spent most of his career working under Kyle Shanahan. Schemes with an emphasis on outside zone are best known for maximizing the talents of physically underwhelming running backs along the lines of Alfred Morris, Arian Foster or Mike Anderson, but there's nothing to say a freak athlete like Henry can't also find success. The presence of Dion Lewis is a bigger concern than scheme fit, as it's hard to imagine Henry approaching 20 touches per game unless his new teammate suffers an injury. The Titans have given every indication that they envision both backs handling major roles.
