Titans' Derrick Henry: Hyped by new OC Smith
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Speaking at his introductory press conference, Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith referred to Henry as a "home-run hitter" with "a rare skill set," Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Henry will enter his fourth NFL season with his third offensive coordinator, though it should be an easy transition given that Smith plans to retain the terminology used by Matt LaFleur in 2018. Assuming he learned something from his predecessor's early mistakes and eventual success, Smith presumably will feature Henry as the lead back while Dion Lewis is mostly used on passing downs. The 247-pound behemoth memorably erupted for 585 rushing yards and seven touchdowns over the final four weeks of the 2018 campaign, nearly dragging a mediocre Titans squad into the playoffs. While Henry still figures to be the centerpiece of most weekly game plans, any reasonable path to success involves the acquisition of better receiving weapons for Marcus Mariota (neck).

Titans' Derrick Henry: Modest output in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry received 16 carries for 93 yards and added another 13 yards on his lone reception in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts.

Henry was actually bottled up for most of the first half, but head coach Mike Vrabel unleashed the Wildcat offense for a drive and that got his bruising back rolling a bit. The 24-year-old was unable to score a touchdown for the first time since Week 12, but he still produced a decent stat line in the end. Henry's strong finish the to season is surely going to create pre-draft buzz similar to what his stock experienced prior to this season, but it will be up to fantasy owners to decide whether or not to trust fall back into Henry's arms after a slow start likely cost many of them fantasy playoff opportunities.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Hits paydirt in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry rushed 21 times for 84 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 25-16 win over Washington. He caught his lone target for eight yards.

Henry also missed his first pass attempt of the season, ending his hopes of a perfect completion percentage for the year. (He's 2-of-3 for 14 yards.) All joking aside, the bruising back turned in another fine fantasy performance, even if it wasn't as impressive as the two monster games he was coming off. The 28-year-old is finally looking like the top-end fantasy back that many hoped he would become during drafts. It only took the Titans' coaching staff 13 weeks to finally feature him, but better late than never. Henry should be in store for another 20-plus touch workload in an important matchup with the Colts in Week 17.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Pummels way to big game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry carried the ball 33 times for 170 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 17-0 win over the Giants. He caught one pass for zero yards.

Henry set a new single-game high in carries and combined that with impressive efficiency to provide another strong fantasy performance. His touches have been on the rise in four consecutive weeks, as the Titans' offensive gameplan has emphasized controlling the ball and clock. That suits Henry's style of running, and it should equate to him remaining the featured back over Dion Lewis and finishing the season strong. Notably, Henry has also done more with his opportunities of late, averaging four or more yards per carry in six of his past seven games.

Titans' Derrick Henry: Career-best night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry rushed 17 times for 238 yards and four touchdowns in the Titans' 30-9 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.

Henry's night for the ages came out of nowhere, as he'd failed to even hit 60 rushing yards in any game prior this season and had tallied just 70 combined yards over the prior pair of contests. Henry's impressive size/speed combo was on full display throughout the night, including on his record-tying 99-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. The 2016 second-round pick added scoring scampers of three, 16 and 54 yards, allowing him to single-handedly dismantle a surprisingly vulnerable Jaguars defense while setting a new franchise record for single-game rushing yardage. Despite his otherworldly performance Thursday, the division of labor in the Titans backfield between Henry and Dion Lewis will likely remain difficult to trust on a weekly basis for what remains of the regular season. Henry will look to somehow put together a fitting encore in a Week 15 battle against the Giants on Dec. 16.
