The Titans have applied the franchise tag to RB Derrick Henry. The move was expected, as Tennessee reportedly wants to work out a longer-term deal with its lead back. We have all seen, of course, big-money RB deals quickly look bad in other situations. But Henry should be well set up for workhorse usage and good fantasy value for 2020 (and perhaps beyond).

The Titans and QB Ryan Tannehill have agreed to a 4-year, $118 million deal with $91 million in total guarantees, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That $29.5 million average annual salary makes Tannehill the league's 7th highest paid QB. After a mostly disappointing 6 seasons in Miami, Tannehill was awesome for Tennessee last year. Including the playoffs, he completed 68.5% of his passes, averaged 9.0 yards per attempt and tossed 27 TDs vs. 7 INTs across 14 appearances. He was fantasy's #3 QB after taking over as the Titans' starter in Week 7. Note, though, that Tannehill averaged just 25.4 pass attempts in his 13 starts. He'll need to reproduce last year's otherworldly efficiency in order to score as a top 10 QB on that type of volume. Consider Tannehill more of a high-end QB2 in early best-ball drafts.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Falcons plan to let TE Austin Hooper reach free agency when the new league year begins in March. We'd bet on that meaning a new team for Hooper, unless Atlanta knows that the TE will find a softer market than he expects. Hooper will still be just 25 when the 2020 season begins, and coming off consecutive seasons of 71+ catches. He enjoyed a career-best TE6 finish in PPR scoring for 2019. The uncertainty of his 2020 offense, however, adds risk to Hooper in early best-ball drafting. Hooper sits TE6 in ADP in both FFPC and BestBall10s drafting so far.

Titans ILBs Jayon Brown and Rashaan Evans and CB Adoree’ Jackson are all active for today’s game against the Chiefs after entering the day questionable. That’ll all help the defense, but Tennessee will need some turnover and/or scoring luck to help you in fantasy.

Titans ILBs Jayon Brown (shoulder) and Rashaan Evans (foot) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Both put in limited practices all week. We'll see about their availability Sunday afternoon.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. It seems like he's as healthy as he's been in a while. Henry should be in for a big workload on Sunday against a Texans defense that's allowed 4.3 yards per carry to RBs over the last 5 weeks.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (hamstring) is expected back for Sunday's win-and-in game against the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tennessee held Henry out of a Week 16 game that ended up meaning nothing for the team's playoff chances. Now "he'll be as healthy as he's been in a long time," Rapoport says. Henry should be in for big volume this weekend.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (hamstring) is officially inactive for today’s game against the Saints. That leaves Dion Lewis as Tennessee’s lead back, ahead of Dalyn Dawkins and Khari Blasingame. Lewis sits in RB3 range in our Week 16 Rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Titans RB Derrick Henry (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Saints today. He's been dealing with a bum hamstring for the past few weeks and was downgraded to questionable on Saturday. His absence leaves Tennessee with RBs Dion Lewis, undrafted rookie Khari Blasingame and practice-squad call-up Dalyn Dawkins. 29-year-old Lewis has struggled to just 3.5 yards per carry and 6.0 yards per catch in limited action this year. We're not expecting great efficiency today against a solid Saints defense, but Lewis should be in line for 15+ touches. That at least makes him a RB3 or flex option.

The Titans have downgraded RB Derrick Henry (hamstring) to questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. He was limited in Wednesday's practice, held out on Thursday and a full-go on Friday. It's unclear if he tweaked the hamstring on Friday or just woke up a bit sore today. We'll look for further updates on Henry, but stashing RB Dion Lewis wouldn't be a bad idea.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He didn’t practice at all this week, but NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported this morning that it was “mostly a maintenance thing.” Henry remains a must-start as he looks for his 5th straight game of 100+ yards and 1+ TDs.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Titans expect RB Derrick Henry to play through the questionable tag for the hamstring injury that kept him out of practice all week. Pelissero calls it "mostly a maintenance thing" and adds: "They'll see how he feels in the morning and be smart with him, but no pitch count planned." As long as Henry's active, you're playing him.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. He didn't practice all week. HC Mike Vrabel has said that Henry will play in this divisional showdown, but it's clear that he's dealing with a legitimate hamstring issue. It obviously adds risk to Henry's Week 15 outlook. But he remains a must-start if active.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) practiced all week and will return for Sunday’s game against the Panthers. Hooper was leading his position in PPR and non-PPR points through 10 healthy weeks. He’s right back to high-end TE1 status.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn hinted in a Wednesday radio appearance that TE Austin Hooper (knee) is set to return for this weekend's game against the Panthers. He's been out since Week 10 but was leading all TEs in PPR and non-PPR points up until that point. We'll track Hooper's practice participation over the next few days, but he'll be back to high-end TE1 status unless we hear that he'll be limited vs. Carolina.

Colts WR Chester Rogers will likely miss the rest of the season after fracturing his knee in Sunday's loss to the Titans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That leaves Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson and Ashton Dulin as Indianapolis' healthy WRs. We'll see if T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) can make it back for Week 14. The WR corps has an excellent matchup against the Bucs on Sunday.

Colts WR Chester Rogers was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Titans with a knee injury. Already without WRs T.Y. Hilton, Parris Campbell and Devin Funchess, the Colts are are down to WRs Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson and rookie Ashton Dulin.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) is out for Thursday night's game against the Saints. Jaeden Graham has served as Atlanta's lead pass-catching TE over the past 2 weeks but has totaled just 4 targets.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) remained sidelined for Tuesday's practice. He's not going to play against the Saints on Thursday night. TE Jaeden Graham has been operating as Atlanta's lead pass-catching TE in Hooper's place but has totaled just 4 targets over the past 2 weeks.

6:11pm EST 11/25/19

Rams WR Robert Woods is active for tonight’s game against the Ravens. He re-joined the team on Thursday and practiced all week, so expect him to play his usual every-down role tonight.
