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.

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

10:40am EDT 5/12/22

Will Henry's snaps diminish?

Titans beat writer Ben Arthur writes that rookie RB Hassan Haskins “could eat into some of [Derrick Henry’s] snaps on early downs.” Haskins, a 4th round pick, brings a power back skill set to the pros. Tennessee’s rarely had a dependable #2 alongside Derrick Henry, although D’Onta Foreman turned out to be a pleasant surprise in 2021. He’s now in Carolina, leaving Dontrell Hilliard as Haskins’ main competition. Recall that Henry, 28, underwent foot surgery in early November. He returned for the Divisional Round but wasn't close to 100%. While Henry still projects as a top-8 fantasy RB, the risk here is clear.

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.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) has been activated from IR, putting him on track to play in Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bengals. Henry has been out since suffering a Jones Fracture in his right foot on Halloween. He had surgery a couple of days later and will be playing with a steel plate in that right foot. Henry's role and effectiveness is the biggest question mark of the weekend.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) participated in a padded practice on Tuesday. He still hasn’t been activated off IR, but that’s the expectation ahead of Saturday’s game vs. Cincinnati. "I felt great," Henry said Wednesday via ESPN. "I just wanted to get some pads on. Haven't had them on in a while and got some contact going.” Henry’s last appearance came back in Week 8.

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.
