2024 RTSports Outlook

It seemed like Henry had a down season, but he was still second overall in rushing yardage. Henry was ninth overall in fantasy running back scoring. He was a little more inconsistent, though, having fewer than double-digit fantasy points six times. Henry had 20-plus fantasy points five times, showing still had big-game ability. Henry remained good after contact, averaging 2.1 yards per carry after contact. This was the 11th best total in football. Henry is 30 years old, so age is starting to become a concern. He also has a ton of usage under his belt, leading the league in carries four of five season. You have to wonder if his huge workload in recent years is going to catch up with him. He moves to a run-heavy offense with a great offensive line, though, so things are looking up for Henry - even at his current age. Henry is a great one-cut runner that can get downhill in a hurry. Henry can be a punishing runner. He lacks some moves in space, but makes up for that with his running style and top speed. Henry doesn't get much work as a receiver, but does have 25-plus receptions two straight season.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Henry's huge workload is a concern, but as long as he is playing and on the field, he is a top-15 fantasy back in this offense. It just wouldn't surprise to see him start to slow down even more this season. All those carries have to catch up with him sooner than later. Even with that said, he can still get around 1,200 total yards with double-digit touchdowns.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Derrick Henry has to fall off a cliff soon right? Wrong. Sure, he is 30 years old, 86 in running back years, and has 2,185 career touches, but the fantasy community has been preaching his downfall since 2020 and all he has done is score at least 10 touchdowns and finish as a top-five running back in points per game in each season until last year. Despite 2023 being his worst fantasy season since 2018 (not including his 8-game season in 2021), Henry still had 12 touchdowns and finished as the RB10 in PPR, and he did it with a mediocre offensive line, Ryan Tannehill and rookie Will Levis under center, and a little help from a rusty DeAndre Hopkins who missed time due to a suspension. He was the entire focal point of the offense and the only player defenses prepared to stop, and he still finished with 16 breakaway runs (2nd), 59 evaded tackles (9th), and 933 yards created beyond what the line blocked for (10th). King Henry now finds himself in the best situation of his career in Baltimore, running in a Lamar Jackson offense with excellent offensive weapons in Zay Flowers and Mark Andrews to keep defenses honest. Last year, Gus Edwards led the Ravens with 13 rushing touchdowns on 198 carries, but he left in free agency to join the Los Angeles Chargers and Henry will be far more efficient at the goal line. He is a tremendous value in the third round of drafts right now with an ADP of 31 overall as the 12th running back off the board. Leading the league in rushing touchdowns is well within his range of outcomes, and after four straight years of proving doubters wrong, only a fool would doubt him in the best situation he has ever been in. Sure, he doesn't catch many passes, but he never has, and it has never mattered. Draft him with confidence and then figure out how you want to spend your winnings.

Player Notes
May 26 11:30am ET

Baltimore Ravens running back Derrick Henry will be involved in the team's passing game in his first year with the team in 2024. Henry caught a couple passes out of the backfield from quarterback Lamar Jackson during organized team activities this week, and he did more pass-catching in the last couple years with the Tennessee Titans, catching 33 passes for 398 yards in 2022 and 28 passes for 214 yards last year. He had never reached 20 receptions in a season before that in his career. Despite all the tread on Henry's tires at this point in his career, it sounds as though the Ravens aren't putting a cap on his workload in 2024 as they try to get over the hump to reach the Super Bowl. Henry will start to become more of an injury risk at the 30-year-old mark, but you can't ignore the fact he's led the league in rushing in four of the last five seasons. As long as his workload remains hefty, Henry will be an RB1 in fantasy.

Baltimore Ravens RB Derrick Henry is viewed as a 'closer' by offensive coordinator Todd Monken, who said that if Henry 'carries it 300 times' in 2024, then the team would be 'having a helluva year.' He also noted the importance of keeping Henry healthy over the course of the season.

Fantasy Spin: At 30 years of age and with 2,000-plus carries on his odometer, Henry is a bit of a risk, no matter what role Monken envisions for the veteran. He's a nonfactor in the passing game, and with the Ravens hoping to play into late January at least, they might choose to save some of Henry's bullets for a postseason run. Still, he's worthy of consideration as a possible high-end RB2.

From TheHuddle

May 23 4:50pm ET

Baltimore Ravens running back Derrick Henry has been one of the busiest ball-carriers in the NFL since earning the clear RB1 role with the Tennessee Titans in 2019. Since Week 1 of the 2019 campaign, he's tallied 1,645 total touches, 7,209 rushing yards, 1,086 receiving yards, and 68 touchdowns. He led the league in carries in four of the last five seasons and is entering his age-30 campaign. However, Ravens offensive coordinator Todd Monken declined to put a cap on his workload in his first season with the Ravens in 2024. "Well, if he carries it 300 times, we're having a helluva year. I can tell you that. It means we're running it a lot; it means we're up in games," Monken said. "We want him to finish. We want him to be the closer." He mentioned that the team wants to ensure he stays healthy through 17 games and will use other running backs in the offense, but it sounds like he'll continue to be a high-volume rusher. Although Henry seems to have lost a step in his long speed and efficiency, he should have plenty of goal-line opportunities on a team that has scored the sixth-most touchdowns (249) over the last five years, and he continues to possess RB1 upside thanks to volume.

Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said there is a 'strong chance' that the team will select a running back in the 2024 NFL Draft. He believes a lot of backs will be chosen between the third and fifth rounds and said that the Ravens have looked at a lot of the players projected to be drafted during those rounds. RBs Derrick Henry, Justice Hill and Keaton Mitchell are currently the top three players on Baltimore's depth chart at the position.

From TheHuddle

Apr 2 2:20pm ET

With running back Derrick Henry joining the Baltimore Ravens offense this offseason, they will have a new look in 2024. Quarterback Lamar Jackson won his second MVP award in 2023 with career-highs in passing yards (3,678) and completion percentage (67.2%). He also led all QBs with 821 rushing yards, and his ability to stress opposing defenses with his rushing ability is something the Ravens don't want to go away. With five 1,000-yard rushing seasons and almost 10,000 career yards, Henry is the most accomplished RB Jackson has played with. "I don't see us going towards like [a] specific offense that runs those more than anybody else. RPOs will be a part of what we're doing, for sure, but they're not going to be the main part of what we're doing," head coach John Harbaugh said. Although Henry is on the backside of his career, he'll continue to have RB1 appeal in fantasy in Baltimore's offense, but his presence could mean fewer designed runs for Jackson.

RB Derrick Henry said that the Dallas Cowboys never reached out to him during free agency this offseason before he signed with the Baltimore Ravens, according to an interview he did with Adam Schein on the 'Schein on Sports' show on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Radio. Henry makes his offseason home in Dallas and the Cowboys had been rumored to have interest in acquiring him from the Tennessee Titans before the 2023 NFL trade deadline.

Mar 13 5:13pm ET

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Derrick Henry (Titans) officially agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, March 13. Financial terms were not disclosed, but an earlier report stated the deal is worth $16 million.

From TheHuddle

Mar 13 12:01am ET

Dynasty | The Ravens have signed running back Derrick Henry to a two-year deal worth up to $20 million Dynasty Analysis: On paper, this seems like a perfect fit. Baltimore is a run-first team with a smash-mouth approach to the game. Henry will pair with Lamar Jackson to likely form the most potent rushing attack in the game. While he is no longer the same player he once was, Henry was still more than effective last season and should have 2-3 more good years left in him. When you consider Gus Edwards was able to post 13 rushing touchdowns last year, it gets even more exciting. Henry's dynasty ranking is almost irrelevant - he's a short-term buy candidate for a contending team, plain and simple.

Mar 12 1:03pm ET

Impending free-agent RB Derrick Henry (Titans) reportedly agreed to terms on a two-year contract worth $16 million - including $9 million guaranteed in the first year - with the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday, March 12. The deal reportedly involves incentives that could allow Henry to earn a maximum of $20 million.

Fantasy Spin: The Ravens are taking a slight risk by rolling the dice on a 30-year-old back, but Henry is not your typical running back in any way, shape or form. In Baltimore, Henry joins one of the few offenses in the league that will not hesitate to run the ball 30-plus times per game. While it is likely someone like Keaton Mitchell (knee) will steal passing-down work from him, Henry will be a strong candidate to push for 300-plus touches yet again in 2024 should his body hold up. The former Tennessee Titan should remain a solid RB1 option in fantasy as a player capable of exceeding 1,500 total yards and 10 touchdowns.

From TheHuddle

Mar 12 1:00pm ET

Free-agent running back Derrick Henry is expected to sign a two-year, $16 million deal worth up to $20 million with the Baltimore Ravens, as reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter. King Henry is set to be a full-fledged workhorse in Baltimore's offense, as J.K. Dobbins is a free agent, Gus Edwards signed with the Los Angeles Chargers, and Keaton Mitchell is coming off a late-season torn ACL. The four-time Pro Bowler and former 2,000-yard rusher posted 1,167 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns in one of the worst offenses in the NFL last year. Paired with Lamar Jackson and a superior offensive line, he could be set up for yet another 1,000-yard, double-digit touchdown campaign. His receiving upside will be limited with Jackson, but that hasn't been a strength of his anyway. Despite recently turning 30 years old, an RB1 season in fantasy football is well within reach in 2024.

From RotoBaller

Mar 11 10:00pm ET

Both the Baltimore Ravens and free-agent running back Derrick Henry have mutual interest in working something out, according to a source, but an agreement still needs to be reached. Henry wasn't never expected to re-sign with the Tennessee Titans, and that especially won't be the case now that Tony Pollard has joined the Titans. Besides, at this point in his career, King Henry wants to play for a contender, and the Titans don't qualify. The Ravens certainly do, though, and they just lost Gus Edwards to the Los Angeles Chargers in free agency on Monday, so Henry makes a ton of sense for a team with Super Bowl aspirations. Henry isn't getting any younger and is probably past his prime, but he could do some serious damage on the ground alongside quarterback Lamar Jackson if he were to join the Ravens.

From RotoBaller

Mar 11 9:53pm ET

Impending free-agent RB Derrick Henry (Titans) is receiving interest from Baltimore Ravens, and Henry is believed to have interest in joining the Ravens, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: The Ravens may be losing their top two running backs from this season in free agency, so Henry is a logical target for the team. He will receive most of the work at running back if he signs with Baltimore and can be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Mar 11 1:10pm ET

The Tennessee Titans are not in on re-signing running back Derrick Henry, which was backed up by the fact that they have reached a verbal agreement to sign free-agent running back Tony Pollard on Monday. The Titans also checked out D'Andre Swift before he agreed with the Chicago Bears. After signing Pollard, they are fully expected to muscle up on the offensive line and receiver positions in free agency. Henry was never really expected to be much of an option to return to Tennessee with a new regime in town. The 30-year-old four-time Pro Bowler had over 1,000 rushing yards for the fifth time in the last six years in 2023, adding 12 rushing touchdowns in 17 games. He may be past his prime heading into his age-30 campaign, but he still has the ability to put up RB1 numbers in fantasy, especially if he goes to a contending team like the Texans or Eagles.

From RotoBaller

Mar 8 8:10pm ET

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, impending free-agent running back Derrick Henry isn't expected to remain with the Titans. Although this isn't a new revelation, it reinforces what has appeared to be in the works for quite some time. The 30-year-old has been a potent presence for fantasy managers, running for 9,502 yards and 90 touchdowns off 2,030 carries in 119 regular season games. During that span, he added 155 catches for 1,458 yards and three touchdowns. It's important to note that while Henry isn't young, he finished the 2023-24 campaign by surpassing the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the fifth time in his career. Even better, he stayed healthy. Nonetheless, Fowler added that the door isn't closed for Henry to remain in Tennessee, considering the team has the money. However, the All-Pro wants a ring, meaning it may benefit him to go elsewhere. But fantasy managers shouldn't dismiss him completely, no matter where he ends up, especially since he could have a few more productive years left.

From RotoBaller

Mar 8 6:53pm ET

Tennessee Titans impending free-agent RB Derrick Henry is considered unlikely to re-sign with the Titans this offseason but there is a small chance of the two sides reaching a deal, according to sources.

Fantasy Spin: Henry should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market. He will start no matter where he signs and probably will be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Feb 28 12:00am ET

While it's unlikely that the Tennessee Titans re-sign impending free-agent running back Derrick Henry this offseason, they aren't completely closing the door on his return yet. A four-year, $50 million deal Henry signed with the Titans in 2020 is set to expire when the new league year opens on March 13. The 30-year-old isn't getting any younger, but he still managed 1,167 rushing yards (second in the NFL) in 2023 behind a subpar offensive line. Henry is chasing a Super Bowl ring at this point in his career, and he'll have a better chance at that somewhere besides Tennessee. In addition, under new head coach Brian Callahan, the Titans figure to be more of a passing offense. The four-time Pro Bowler and former Offensive Player of the Year in 2020 has lots of miles on his body and could begin to start breaking down as he enters his 30s. But in the right situation in 2024, he could still find RB1 appeal in fantasy.

From RotoBaller

Feb 26 7:00pm ET

The Tennessee Titans won't use their franchise tag on impending free-agent running back Derrick Henry this year, according to league sources. With a new coaching staff coming in this offseason, it wasn't expected that the Titans would make much of an effort to retain King Henry as he heads into his age-30 season. The former second-rounder in 2016 out of Alabama has been a Pro Bowler in four of the last five seasons, although he showed some signs of decline in 2023. He had a league-high 280 carries for 1,167 yards (career-low-tying 4.2 yards per carry) and 12 touchdowns, adding 28 catches for 214 yards and no touchdowns as a pass-catcher. Henry may not age gracefully, but he should still have plenty of fantasy appeal in 2024 with a contending team.

From RotoBaller

Feb 26 6:13pm ET

Dynasty | The Titans will not use the franchise tag on running back Derrick Henry. Dynasty Analysis: This should come as no surprise as Henry took the mic at the end of the last Titans game to say goodbye to the only fan base he's ever known. Henry has had a dominant run since entering the league in 2016 but his age (30) indicates the end is near. Dynasty managers are clearly hoping he has one or two more solid years left as he looks to latch in with a contender like Dallas or Baltimore. Time will tell on this one but Henry should be looked upon as a solid contending team target and clearly a player to move on from if your dynasty team isn't in contention.

From Dynasty League Fantasy

Feb 26 2:43pm ET

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is unlikely to receive the franchise tag ahead of free agency, according to sources Monday, Feb. 26.

From TheHuddle

Feb 20 6:03pm ET

Dynasty | Titans running back Derrick Henry has been linked to the Baltimore Ravens in free agency. Dynasty Analysis: Add Baltimore to the list of possible destination for Henry, who has essentially said goodbye to Tennessee and will soon be a free agent. The Ravens will likely have a need at the position as JK Dobbins will be returning from another significant injury, Gus Edwards is aging, and Keaton Mitchell is likely best used as a change of pace runner. This is just speculation at the moment but it's clear Henry is going to have a market for his services this off-season.
