Hello Derrick Henry! After putting up a crazy 17/238/4 rushing stat-line in Week 14, Henry continued to dominate opposing defenses with 33 carries for 170 yards (5.2 YPC) and 2 TDs in Week 15!
I don’t know where this was all year, but Derrick Henry has been unleashed.
Before his breakout game a week ago, Henry only saw more than 10 carries in five out of 12 games, but he’s completely leapfrogged Dion Lewis on the depth chart.
All year, Henry has been efficient and very elusive, having the 5th most Evaded Tackles Per Touch in the league. He’s played well, but so has Lewis, which limited Henry’s usage.
After Henry broke out that 99-yard dominant run against the Jags though, the Titans haven’t turned back and are absolutely feeding Henry.
The Titans play the Redskins in Week 16, which is the fantasy finals for most leagues. As long as the Titans have a positive game script for most of the game, you can expect at least 25 touches for Henry at this point. Since we’re talking about the Josh Johnson led Redskins, I think we’ll see some good game script for Tennessee.
With Henry, we’re talking about a legitimate league winner! Start him!
