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).

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.

Injury Predictor

Henry has lost just 1 game to injury through 2 pro seasons: Week 9 of his rookie campaign to a calf injury. He fractured his fibula during spring practice as a freshman at Alabama but was ready for the start of that season. Henry played in all 29 games between 2014 and 2015, amassing 567 total carries. He could be in for a work uptick in 2018 after Tennessee let DeMarco Murray walk, but Dion Lewis' arrival assures Henry won't turn into a workhorse.
