Player Notes
Jul 9 5:53pm ET

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has less than a week to sign a long-term contract, or he will play the 2020 season under the franchise tag. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel stressed Thursday, July 9, deal's like these take time and patience is needed on both sides. 'Derrick signed his franchise tender, he's under contract,' Vrabel said. '... Having been involved with the NFL for a lot of years, getting deals done is about being patient, hopefully keeping them private and confidential. So I'm going to try to respect that, and understand that we love Derrick and he understands how important he is to our football team. Again, his leadership that grew last year, I'm looking forward, I know our team is looking for more of that this year.'

Jul 8 4:10pm ET

Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson has continued discussions with running back Derrick Henry's representation on a long-term contract extension with just one week left to reach an agreement before the July 15 deadline. If the sides can't agree, Henry will play 2020 on the $10.278 million franchise tag. Henry led the NFL with 1,540 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns in 2019. He led the team to the AFC Championship game and added 446 rushing yards in three playoff games. The former Alabama star had six 100-yard rushing games in the regular season and two more in the postseason. The bruising 25-year-old back will continue to be featured in this run-first offense, which makes him a top-five fantasy football running back that will come off the board in the first round.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is not close to a long-term contract extension at this point. Henry's representatives have been talking with the Titans this offseason about a new deal.

Fantasy Spin: The two sides have a week to reach a deal or Henry will play on the one-year contract he signed. Henry is one of the top running back in the NFL and should be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry was ranked as the No.1 back in the league against a stacked box in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus. With 244 carries against such a defensive setup, nearly 78 more than second-ranked Dalvin Cook, he maintained five yards per carry during those situations, with 4.4 of them coming after contact. The 25-year-old led the league in both rushing yards and touchdowns while also finishing fifth in PPR leagues at his position (second in standard formats). Look for him to go somewhere within the early first-round in fantasy drafts for the upcoming season, so fantasy managers should plan accordingly.

From RotoBaller

Jun 21 1:33pm ET

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has averaged 4.5 yards per carry after contact over the last two seasons.

Fantasy Spin: Henry was the main focus on offense for the Titans during the 2019 season and was one of the top running backs in the NFL. He will see plenty of carries again this upcoming season and will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Jun 11 9:50pm ET

Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson said that he's had positive talks with running back Derrick Henry's representatives over the last two weeks. The two sides have until the deadline of July 15. If Henry can't reach a long-term deal, he'll make $10.2 million on the franchise tag. The 26-year-old bruising back has a ton of value as the Titans workhorse in a run-first offense, especially after he led the league in 2019 with 303 carries for 1,540 yards and 16 touchdowns. Because of the phenomenal season he had last year, Henry will be a first-round fantasy pick as a top-10 RB1, but he could be volatile on a week-to-week basis because of his lack of involvement in the passing game and with the Titans potentially trying to ease his overall workload.

Jun 11 6:33pm ET

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry's agent has talked with the Titans multiple times over the last few weeks regarding a long-term contract for Henry, according to general manager Jon Robinson.

Fantasy Spin: Henry has until the end of July to reach a long-term contract with the Titans. He was one of the top running backs in the NFL last season and should receive a similar workload in 2020. He should be a first-round pick in fantasy drafts.

From TheHuddle

Jun 7 12:30pm ET

TennesseeTitans.com's Jim Wyatt thinks that offensive coordinator Arthur Smith will look to spread the ball around more to a number of players in 2020, which is why he thinks it's unrealistic to think that running back Derrick Henry has a chance for 2,000 rushing yards. The team will try to take some of the load off of the bruising back, which could reduce his touches and snaps. Henry, last year's rushing champion, will still be plenty involved in this run-first offense and is a no-doubt RB1. But fantasy owners might want to bake in a little regression, especially since he's been basically non-existent in the passing game and rookie Darrynton Evans could factor in there.

Jun 5 7:30pm ET

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry earned more rushing first downs on first down (31) than any other running back in the league last season. Henry also had nine rushing touchdowns on first down (second-most in the NFL) and another on a pass. His yards per rush after contact of 4.2 was the best in the league among those with a minimum of 100 rushes, including the playoffs, according to Pro Football Focus. In a run-first offense, Henry was the key cog in Tennessee's machine, helping them to an AFC Championship appearance. The 26-year-old led the league in rushing attempts (303), rushing yards (1,540), rushing TDs (16) and rushing yards per game (102.7). While Henry is an obvious RB1, his lack of involvement in the passing game can make him volatile on a weekly basis.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry's carries will change depending on how each game is going this upcoming season, according to offensive coordinator Arthur Smith.

Fantasy Spin: Henry was one of the top running backs this season and should continue to be a focal point on offense even if the team decides to rest him more often in 2020. He likely will be a first round pick in most fantasy drafts and will be a must-start player.

From TheHuddle

Jun 3 4:40pm ET

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry led the NFL in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns last season and was a key piece of the team's attack down the stretch, but offensive coordinator Arthur Smith says that Henry's 2020 workload will "depend [on] how games go." Smith went on to add that the team wants to make sure other guys get touches as well. It makes sense to reduce Henry's workload some to keep him healthy and rested for the stretch run, as last season he led the NFL in rushing attempts. He's still a fantasy RB1 -- and has the potential to be the overall RB1 in standard-scoring leagues by the end of the year -- but his ceiling could be limited somewhat if Darrynton Evans gets a larger percentage of the touches than Dion Lewis did last season.

Jun 1 4:40pm ET

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry recently received some noteworthy praise from former Giants great, Tiki Barber. The legendary runner was quoted saying, "If I were picking a running back, aside from Christian McCaffrey, I would take Derrick Henry," when asked who he would prefer if he were an NFL general manager. The former second-round pick finished with 16 rushing touchdowns, tied for first with Aaron Jones, and also won the rushing title. While he isn't a reliable week-to-week pass-catching option, his 968 yards YAC makes him a bruising force for fantasy owners. Expect him to go somewhere in the first round in fantasy drafts for the 2020 campaign in all formats.

May 29 8:33pm ET

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed for at least 10 yards on 42 carries during the 2019 regular season, which ranked second in the NFL.

Fantasy Spin: Henry was one of the top running backs in the NFL in 2019 and should continue to see plenty of carries this upcoming season. He likely will be selected in one of the first few rounds of fantasy drafts and will be a must-start option each week.

From TheHuddle

May 21 11:03pm ET

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry led the league with 106 carries against defenses with eight or more defenders in the box in 2019, according to ESPN's Matt Bowen. Additionally, he ranked third in the league among running backs with 5.4 yards per carry on those rushing attempts.

From TheHuddle

May 20 7:10pm ET

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is favored to once again lead the league in rushing in 2020, at least according to Caesars Sportsbook. The 26-year-old is currently listed as a +300 favorite to take home the rushing title and could become the first player to do so in consecutive seasons since LaDainian Tomlinson did it over a decade ago. Henry came up big for fantasy owners in 2019, finishing with a league-leading 16 touchdowns in addition to his equally impressive 1,540 yards on the ground. He may see a slight regression if he concedes touches to rookie Darrynton Evans this upcoming season, but he could still produce enough to surpass his current ADP and finish with more fantasy production than most at his position.

From RotoBaller

May 5 11:33pm ET

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is the only running back in the league with at least 500 carries since 2017 to average at least four yards after contact, according to Pro Football Focus.

Fantasy Spin: It shouldn't come as a shock that a 247-pound back tends to fall forward after contact, but Henry is special in that he usually powers through contact and has explosiveness to go the distance when he has the opportunity. Even though he has already been a league four years, he has only 888 career touches. Despite his relative lack of involvement in the passing game, Henry should be a solid first-round pick in the majority of fantasy leagues this summer.

The Tennessee Titans used their third-round pick (93rd overall) on Appalachian State running back Darrynton Evans. Evans is fast -- he ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash at the combine -- and should complement power-back Derrick Henry nicely in Tennessee's run-first offensive attack. Evans is a one-cut running back with solid explosiveness and excellent vision to find the hole. Henry will still be the lead dog, but after handling 303 carries last season, Evans could share some of the load. The Titans have been one of the most run-heavy teams in the NFL, so expect Evans to go early in rookie-only dynasty league drafts. He'll be a must-own handcuff to Henry.

Apr 24 12:00am ET

The Tennessee Titans selected Georgia offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft on Thursday. It's the second offensive lineman from Georgia to come off the board in the first round this year. Wilson is a huge body as a run blocker and can be dominant in driving defenders off the ball when he gets the proper leverage. His feet are decent and he will need some improvement in that area in pass-protecting, but he lands with a team that obviously loves to run the ball first and foremost with a ground-and-pound mentality with running back Derrick Henry. There is upside here for Wilson, and he should slot right in at right tackle to help replace Jack Conklin.

From RotoBaller

Apr 13 11:53pm ET

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry amassed a league-high 968 yards rushing after contact in 2019 - a significant jump from the 656 yards rushing after contact that ranked second in the NFL in 2018.

From TheHuddle

Apr 2 1:43pm ET

Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry signed his franchise tender Thursday, April 2. Henry and the Titans remain committed to reaching a long-term agreement before the July 15 deadline.

Fantasy Spin: This is reassuring, since there may have been enough speculation to the contrary to make fantasy footballers nervous. Look for Henry to be rumbling as a No. 1 fantasy back on Sundays, provided we have football games in which he can rumble.
