The NFL announced on Thursday morning that the Steelers-Titans game will not be played this week after a 5th Titans player tested positive for COVID. We're still waiting to hear when the game will be played, but Week 4 now acts as a bye week for Steelers and Titans players. Get them out of your starting lineups.
In addition to his customary 85 yards and a TD on the ground in Sunday's win over the Raiders, RB Derrick Henry collected 5 catches for 58 yards among 6 targets. It was just his 2nd career game with 5+ receptions and 5th game of more than 41 receiving yards. Henry had just 1 total target through the first 2 games, so we'll need to see more before we believe this signals a true change in approach for Tennessee.
Titans LT Taylor Lewan will miss the rest of the season with the knee injury that knocked him out of Monday night's loss to the Bils. That's a significant blow for the Tennessee O-line, which negatively impacts RB Derrick Henry and the pass protection for QB Ryan Tannehill. We'd recommend shopping Henry after his next good fantasy outing.
Titans RB Derrick Henry ran for just 25 yards on 13 carries in Monday night's lopsided loss at Buffalo. He did, at least, punch in a 1st quarter TD to salvage some value. But the Bills thoroughly dominated the contest, making it tough conditions for the Tennessee run game. A Week 3 home date with the Raiders should bring a softer defense. We'll see whether Henry can capitalize.
Titans RB Derrick Henry got the carries expected (21) in Sunday's narrow loss to the Giants but managed just 82 yards (3.9 per rush) for a lackluster fantasy outing. He added 0 catches on just 1 target and watched RB Dontrell Hilliard score both of Tennesssee's TDs. Hilliard found the end zone on receptions of 7 and 23 yards as part of a 3-61 receiving line on 4 targets. He added just 2 carries. No other Titans RB touched the ball.
Per Ben Arthur of The Tennessean, “no lingering concerns” have been “apparent” regarding Derrick Henry’s foot. Henry, of course, missed 9 games last year before returning for the postseason. Arthur also writes that the RB has “showcased his signature burst,” so it certainly seems like he’s the Henry of old. The 28-year-old enters August with a mid-to-late Round 1 ADP.
