Titans' Derrick Henry: Bottled up by Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry carried the ball 15 times for 28 yards and caught one of three targets for five yards in Sunday's 16-0 loss to the Broncos.

The entire Titans offense struggled in Denver, with Henry's season-low yardage total being emblematic of the team's futility. In fact, it was the first time this season the bruising running back failed to either find the end zone or rush for 100 yards. Henry will try to get back on track in Week 7 against a Chargers defense that has been middle of the pack in 2019 against the run.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Finds rhythm in second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry carried the ball 20 times for 78 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Bills. He was not targeted in the passing game.

Henry got only five carries in the first half, with the Titans maintaining only two drives of more than three plays. Things improved in the second half, as Henry found the end zone from one yard away and saw more consistent involvement in the offense. While Henry's minimal involvement in the passing game lowers both his floor and ceiling, he's a major driving force behind the Titans' inconsistent offense and is no longer splitting the backfield with Dion Lewis. Henry will look to find the end zone for the fifth time in six games in the team's Week 6 matchup against the Broncos.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Reaches century mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry carried the ball 27 times for 100 yards in Week 4 against Atlanta. He also added one reception for eight yards.

While not particularly efficient, Henry received 27 of the team's 34 carries to enjoy a productive day. Most of his volume came in the second half, when he picked up 18 carries and 71 yards. While still not heavily involved in the passing game, Henry has earned at least 15 carries in all four of the Titans' games this season. That has allowed him to turn in consistent fantasy performances and is one of the more reliable -- if unspectacular -- options at the position as a result. However, he'll draw a tough matchup in Week 5 against Buffalo.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Stonewalled in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry rushed 17 times for 44 yards and a touchdown and brought in one of two targets for two yards in the Titans' 20-7 loss to the Jaguars on Thursday.

The Jaguars defense was ready for Henry after he eviscerated them for 238 yards and four touchdowns in a Week 14 Thursday night matchup last season. Henry could only manage a long run of 11 yards this time around, although his one-yard push into the end zone early in the fourth quarter salvaged his fantasy line to an extent. Henry has a rushing score in each of his first three games and will look to bounce back yardage-wise in a Week 4 road battle against the Falcons a week from Sunday.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Barrels into the end zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry ran for 81 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries and added 12 yards on two catches during Sunday's 19-17 loss to Indianapolis. He fumbled during the contest, but it wasn't lost.

Henry put the Titans up in the third quarter, flipping into the end zone for a goal-line score. Through two weeks, it's hard to determine whether the Titans offense is the opportunistic attack we saw in Week 1 or the stagnant operation Week 2 showed, but Henry looks like a hot commodity either way with three touchdowns and 252 total yards thus far. It'll be tough to keep that going on a short week against a tough Jaguars defense.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Lucrative outing against Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry accounted for 81 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries, while also contributing two receptions for 12 yards during Sunday's 19-17 loss to Indianapolis.

Many supposed at the time that Henry's 238-yard, four-touchdown Week 14 performance against Jacksonville last season was an enigma, given that he had averaged fewer than 40 rushing yards per contest, and had five touchdowns in his 12 games prior. The former Heisman winner has since proven that he is here to stay as a fantasy blue chipper, picking up 80-plus rushing yards in five straight games, and registering six total touchdowns since that fateful Thursday night. In Week 3 Henry will aim to repeat his legendary performance from last December, facing a Jaguars defense that has conceded more than 4.6 yards per carry to opposing running backs thus far in 2019.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Eviscerates Cleveland in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry rushed 19 times for 84 yards and a touchdown and caught one of two targets for 75 yards and another score in Sunday's 43-13 win over the Browns.

Henry powered in a one-yard touchdown for a 10-6 lead in the second quarter, then exploded down the sideline for a 75-yard receiving score in the third to restore a two-possession lead on the first play after Cleveland had pulled within two points. Tennessee was able to play from ahead for most of this game, affording the power back plenty of rushing attempts. While future game scripts could lead to less volume for Henry should the Titans fall behind, he's a tremendous option near the goal line and by far the most dangerous offensive player on his team.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Feeling good before opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) has been practicing for the past two weeks, NFL Network's Will Selva reports. "I'm feeling well," Henry said Monday. "Sad I missed camp. I've been practicing these past two weeks."

Henry strained his calf on the first day of training camp, July 26, and was held out of practice until Aug. 19. Despite missing the entire preseason, it sounds like he'll be ready for full participation Wednesday when the Titans release their initial injury report for Sunday's season opener in Cleveland. The Browns gave up the 12th most fantasy points and seventh most rushing yards to running backs last year, but they should present a tougher matchup after adding DT Sheldon Richardson and DE Olivier Vernon in the offseason.

Titans' Derrick Henry: On track for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) indicated Tuesday that he'll be fine for the Titans' season opener, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

The 6-foot-3, 247-pound Henry is thus in line to head the Titans' ground attack in 2019, with Dion Lewis slated to reprise his role as the team's top change-of-pace option. Given the seeming clarity of his role, and the lack of proven options behind that duo, Henry possesses a solid fantasy floor heading into the coming season.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Skipping third preseason contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) is not among the group of running backs warming up ahead of Sunday's preseason matchup with the Steelers, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Henry appears to be making progress in his return from a calf injury, but the Titans are playing it safe with their starting running back and holding him out once again. He's back to practicing, so Henry's Week 1 status doesn't look to be in doubt at this point.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Could make preseason appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) looked good at Thursday's practice, giving him a shot to play in a preseason game against Pittsburgh on Saturday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Coach Mike Vrabel said the Titans are in rush to make a decision, still wanting to see how Henry responds the next couple days. The 25-year-old running back returned to practice earlier this week for the first time since suffering a calf strain at the beginning of training camp. Henry appears on track for Week 1, regardless of his preseason involvement.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Practices again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) participated in Tuesday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

This is the second straight day Henry managed to practice after his lengthy absence with a left calf strain. It's unclear whether Henry upped his participation by much Tuesday, as videos showed the tailback just participating in indivudual drills, but it's still a good sign for Henry as he makes his way back to 100 percent.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) returned to practice Monday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Per the report, Henry took part in the individual portion of Monday's practice, and we'll assume that he'll continue to up his participation as the week rolls along, in the absence of any setbacks. Henry will look to build off last season's strong finish, and assuming his health the physical back will head the Titans' ground attack in 2019, with Dion Lewis slated to reprise his role as the team's top change-of-pace option.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Unlikely to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) isn't expected to suit up for Saturday's preseason contest against the Patriots, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Henry has been tending to a left calf strain since the opening stanzas of training camp. He has yet to return to practice, but his ability to work out on the side at recent sessions is a step in the right direction. His next chance to play during exhibition season arrives Sunday, Aug. 25 versus the Steelers.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Works off to the side
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice but was spotted on a side field running with a football in his hand while making cuts, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Per Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com, Henry sported a sleeve on his left calf, but the fact that the running back is able to make cuts at this stage is a good sign. He'll probably sit out Saturday's preseason game against the Patriots, but an appearance in the Titans' third exhibition tilt seems plausible, in the absence of any setbacks.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Working out at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) is working out on the side of Titans' practice Sunday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Henry has been working his way back from a strained calf muscle and his work on the side of practice is an encouraging sign. His initial recovery timetable was expected to be a couple weeks, which he's on track with.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) won't play in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Eagles, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

The report adds that change-of-pace back Dion Lewis could also be rested, or limited, which sets the stage for Jeremy McNichols, Dalyn Dawkins and Alex Barnes to battle for backup slotting in the Tennessee backfield Thursday night.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Still sitting out practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) remained sidelined at practice Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Henry kicked off training camp by straining his calf, which was accompanied by a recovery timetable of about two weeks. The Titans' first preseason game takes place Thursday, so the running back seems poised to stay of the calf until the team reconvenes this weekend. No matter how long he remains off the practice field, there's little reason to worry about his availability for the regular season with Week 1 a little more than a month in the future.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Ditches walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (calf) wasn't sporting a walking boot while he was sidelined during Wednesday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

This encouraging nugget arrives just one day after Adam Schefter of ESPN relayed that Henry's strained calf had left the running back in a boot and could sideline him for about two weeks. Henry's injury isn't considered serious and the prevailing belief is that the Titans are simply being cautious with a player who is being counted on for big things this season after a very strong finish to his 2018 campaign.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Dealing with strained calf muscle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry has a strained calf muscle that could sideline him approximately two weeks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Per the report, Henry's injury is not thought to be serious, with the team simply playing it safe with the bruising back. In Henry's absence, added backfield reps in practice will be available for Jeremy McNichols, Alex Barnes and Dalyn Dawkins.
