Basic StatsDerrick Henry's Preseason Player Analysis

View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Henry appeared in a career-low 8 games last season. Prior to 2021, he sat out only 3 games in 5 seasons.
  • Last October, Henry suffered a break to the fifth metatarsal in his right foot.
  • Surgery followed, but Henry returned at less than 100% to face Cincy in the postseason (20-62-1).
  • Pre-injury, Henry showed some signs of decline. His 4.2 YPC marked a career-low; his 74.9 Pro Football Focus rushing grade marked a 5-year low.
  • His 3.28 yards after contact per attempt didn’t measure up to the 3 prior years of 3.85, 4.16 and 4.21.
  • His PFF Elusive Rating of 49.8 ranked 18th among 31 RBs with 150+ attempts. It was another career-low, too.
  • Henry was on pace for (easily) a career-high in catches (36). His current high is 19, set in 2020.
  • A whopping 11 TDs helped Henry rank as a top-5 RB 4 times.
  • The Titans ranked 11th in PFF run blocking grade. The ’22 line will undergo some change following the offseason departures of Rodger Saffold and David Quessenberry.
  • Overall, this unit will see competition at several spots. But on paper, it looks far from elite.
  • Tennessee used a Round 4 pick on Michigan RB Hassan Haskins. With a Henry-like frame (6’2, 220), he’s considered the likely handcuff.
  • Tennessee traded away A.J. Brown, delivering a blow to this offense’s overall upside. Robert Woods (coming off an ACL tear) and rookie Treylon Burks at least provide some promise.
  • Per Ben Arthur of The Tennessean, “no lingering concerns” have been “apparent” regarding Derrick Henry’s foot.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Henry, 28 in July, enters the season with over 1,400 career carries.

His foot fracture derailed what likely would have been another highly productive season. Henry, however, showed some signs of decline pre-injury, ones masked by heavy volume and a high scoring rate.

Given his age and career workload — and now a transitioning Titans offense — Henry profiles as a high risk, high reward pick.

Derrick Henry, RB TEN

Henry struggles on ground, fumbles opportunity

Titans RB Derrick Henry mustered only 38 yards on 17 carries in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, his 3rd straight outing with 3.1 yards per carry or less. Henry nearly saved his fantasy line with a 69-yard catch and run early in the 2nd quarter, but he got stripped short of the goal line. WR Treylon Burks recovered that ball for the TD. Henry's 3 receptions for the game totaled 79 yards, getting him to a nice 117 total yards. We'll see whether Henry's rushing can rebound in Week 13 against a Philly defense that has been generous on the ground.

Titans RB Derrick Henry managed just 53 yards on 19 carries in Sunday's win over the Broncos. He added 2 catches for 14 yards among 3 targets. It marked his fewest yards per carry since Week 2 and just the 3rd game all year in which Henry logged fewer than 20 attempts. Next comes a Thursday night visit to Green Bay.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Titans QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. Tannehill practiced all week, including 1 full workout on Thursday. There's still a chance that his mobility is compromised, though, and the matchup is brutal vs. Denver's 2nd-ranked QB defense. Tannehill isn't even a recommended QB2 starter, but we'd still consider him good news for Tennessee's offense.

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Broncos. He was limited in Wednesday's practice, a full participant on Thursday and limited again on Friday. We're guessing that was the plan coming into the week, rather than a setback, and that Tannehill will start Sunday's game. We'll look for further updates on the situation and will get Tennessee's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. It looks like he's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Broncos. It's good news for Tennessee's offense, but we'd still avoid this passing game against a tough Denver pass defense.

Dynasty Write-up
Henry missed the final 9 games of the regular season with a Jones Fracture in his right foot but made it back for the playoffs. That particular injury isn't a concern moving forward, but we wonder how much gas is left in the tank of this 28-year-old with over 1,400 NFL carries.
