Derrick Henry ($9,500)
It’s a tough week on FD at the RB position with a lot of RBs either injured or in tough matchups.
Henry is the most expensive player on the Week 8 slate — but for good reason in an elite matchup going up against the 21st ranked rush defense of the Bengals.
We target TDs on FD, and who has been better than Henry in that department? He’s scored 7 TDs in his last 4 games.
We know Henry will get 20+ carries. He’s reached that mark in every game this season besides Week 5 against the Bills when he had 19 for 57 yards and 2 scores.
With not a lot to like at the RB position, I will be using the high floor/ceiling of Henry in at least 35% of my GPP lineups.
