Hassan Haskins Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Titans have ruled RB Dontrell Hilliard (hamstring) out for Monday night's game against the Bills. That should position rookie Hassan Haskins as the #2 RB, though Trenton Cannon and Julius Chestnut could factor in as well. None is likely to get enough touches to be fantasy relevant.

The Titans opened eyes by starting undrafted free agent RB Julius Chestnut over 4th-round rookie RB Hassan Haskins in the 1st preseason game. On Saturday night, though, Haskins got into the game 1st. RB Dontrell Hilliard started (after sitting out the preseason opener as a healthy scratch) and got the only RB touch on Tennessee's 1st drive. Then Haskins took the field for the 2nd and 3rd possessions, with Chestnut entering for the 4th. The Titans are probably still sorting out the RB depth chart behind Derrick Henry and Hilliard. We wouldn't recommend prioritizing either rookie in the handcuff range of fantasy football drafts.

Titans beat writer Ben Arthur writes that it’s “fair to wonder how dominant” RB Derrick Henry will remain in 2022. Henry, 28, suffered a broken foot around mid-season last year and missed 9 games. He’s back to 100%, but the potential for decline is clear. Tennessee can save $12.5 million against the cap by releasing Henry in 2023. Per Arthur, rookie 4th-round RB Hassan Haskins is the likely successor.

Titans RB coach Tony Dews gave his assessment of rookie RB Hassan Haskins. “Hassan has been a pleasure to work with,” Dews said of the Michigan product. "In the classroom portion, he puts in work. He works hard, he studies the game. And out here on the field, obviously we're in shorts and a big part of his game is his power, the way he runs with the ball. But I am excited to see him as we get going and we get into camp and get pads on and those kinds of things…at this point I am just looking for him to continue to get better each day as he we come out here and work on his skillset.” Haskins will battle veteran Dontrell Hilliard for the #2 job behind Derrick Henry. If Henry misses games, Haskins would project to share the early-down carries with Hilliard handling passing downs.

Jim Wyatt of the team website says RB Dontrell Hilliard "has gotten a lot of work this offseason" and been impressive. Wyatt's report highlighted a pair of TD catches from QB Ryan Tannehill in 7-on-7s, which means that Hilliard is mixing in regularly with the starters. Tennessee has showed us that we shouldn't seek fantasy value from the #2 RB as long as Derrick Henry is healthy. Hilliard wound up sharing backfield work after Henry went down last year, though. He tallied a 131-yard rushing day at New England and an 8-catch outing vs. Houston. The Titans have since shed last year's backfield target leader, Jeremy McNichols, and the #2 in carries, D'Onta Foreman. Fourth-round rookie RB Hassan Haskins sits 21 spots ahead of Hilliard in positional ADP on Underdog right now. That makes Hilliard a potential differentiator at the end of best-ball tournament drafts. We'll see how his role develops through summer.

The Titans selected Michigan RB Hassan Haskins in the 4th round of the 2022 NFL Draft. At 6'2, 228 pounds, he certainly fits Tennessee's smash-mouth running game. Haskins started for the past 3 years at Michigan but didn't break out until this past season, when he took 270 carries for 1,327 yards and 20 TDs. Haskins packs plenty of power but has below average speed and elusiveness. He'll compete this year to be RB Derrick Henry's backup.
