2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
I could dazzle you with a lot of fancy stats here, but let's just cut to the chase. This beast of a man has rushed for over 3,500 yards and 33 touchdowns over the last two years. That's really all you need to know. But just in case you need more, it's worth noting that his attempts, yards, and rushing touchdowns have all gone up each year of his career. He's not going to offer much as a receiver out of the backfield, but it's not unreasonable to think that he could post a second consecutive 2,000-yard rushing season and approach 400 touches and 20 TD's.

Could he get injured? Of course. Could he start to feel the effects of his workload the last two seasons? I suppose. But have you seen the guy's workout videos on social media? In a word, ridiculous. He'll be ready and in shape, and might very well be the strongest man, pound for pound, in the NFL.

There's very little debate on this one. Henry is the No.2 RB behind Christian McCaffrey, and probably the second overall player off the board in just about every draft.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Derrick Henry not expected to be on a snap count
Missed nine games with foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jan 22, 10:17 am

Tennessee Titans
I was told Derrick Henry will not be on a snap count, he will have no limitations, and the coaching staff will keep a close eye on him to watch his conditioning and comfort. The team practiced in pads this week to get him ready to take his hits. (Dianna Russini on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like the Titans are ready to roll with Henry in their Divisional game against the Bengals. He missed nine games with a foot injury which caused the Titans to go with a committee approach using D'Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard for the bulk of running back touches. With Henry back in the mix, he's is in the top tier of fantasy running backs this week.


Injury Derrick Henry activated off Injured Reserve
Missed 9 games with foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 21, 4:00 pm

Tennessee Titans
Titans officially activated RB Derrick Henry off injured reserve and he is expected to start Saturday vs. the Bengals. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Henry last played in Week 8, missing nine games with a foot injury. It remains to been how much work he will get but he's expected to start against the Bengals and it would be shocking if he didn't lead the Titans' running backs in snaps and carries.


Injury Final decision on Derrick Henry coming Friday
RB has practiced the last two weeks
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 20, 9:40 pm

Tennessee Titans
Vrabel: Derrick Henry is progressing well. We added a little more to his workload each day. We’ll make a decision tomorrow. (Titans Insider - Terry McCormick)

FFToday's Take: Vrabel also noted that the team is adding "a little more to his workload each day (in practice)," suggesting it is likely a formality he will play on Sunday. The major question is more likely if he will return to the 25-30 touch workload he was seeing pre-injury or if the Titans will let D'Onta Foreman take a handful of carries this weekend. Either way, Henry has a great shot to be the top-scoring back in fantasy this week even though he hasn't played since Week 8.


Injury Derrick Henry expected back at practice Wednesday
Will likely return for the playoffs
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jan 4, 4:48 pm

Tennessee Titans
Titans are expecting star RB Derrick Henry to be at practice tomorrow, I’m told, setting the stage for a playoff return. He’s been ramping up toward this. (Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's not likely that Henry plays in Week 18 but we should see him at some point during the playoffs. Tennessee currently sits as the No.1 seed in the AFC thanks to their tie breaker advantage over Kansas City. Expect a lot of D'Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard against the Texans on Sunday.


Injury Derrick Henry to return in early January?
Suffered foot injury in Week 8
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 18, 11:50 pm

Tennessee Titans
Per ESPN's Dianna Russini via a source: "There is optimism that (Derrick Henry) will be back early January. That is perfect timing for this team for playoffs to begin." (ESPN - Dianna Russini)

FFToday's Take: Henry was given an 8-10 week timeline shortly after undergoing foot surgery, which could allow him to return during the fantasy playoffs if he meets the most optimistic projection. Until then, Adrian Peterson and D'Onta Foreman will continue to split the early-down work for Tennessee. Foreman has looked better to this point, but it is important to remember he was in camp with Atlanta this summer and occasionally worked out for teams before landing in Tennessee. Peterson is basically getting his first reps since last season.


Titans signing Adrian Peterson
36 year-old RB will help fill the void
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 1, 2:44 pm

Tennessee Titans
Source: The #Titans are signing FA RB Adrian Peterson, putting him on the practice squad then elevating him to the roster. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We can expect Peterson to play a significant role while Derrick Henry (foot) is out, which could be most of the regular season. Peterson (36) played last year in Detroit averaging 3.9 yards per carry. Some mixture of Peterson on early downs and Jeremy McNichols on passing downs is the likeliest scenario for running back usage in Tennessee. Peterson is a worthy add for RB needy teams but doesn't hold a lot of PPR value.


Injury Derrick Henry may have suffered a season-ending foot injury
Finished Week 8 after having foot looked at in first half
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 1, 9:11 am

Tennessee Titans
Titans’ RB Derrick Henry suffered a potentially season-ending foot injury during Sunday’s 34-31 win over Indianapolis, sources reported ESPN. Henry is undergoing an MRI today to determine the full extent of the damage. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Henry was getting his foot looked yesterday but did finish the game but had his worst performance of the season (28-68-0). He's been very durable throughout his carreer missing only 3 games in five-plus seasons. He's racked up 219 carries in 8 weeks this year and become a dominant force at the running back position. If he misses time, we'll likely see more passing from the Titans offense. Jeremy McNichols is next up on the depth chart. It wouldn't be surprising to see the the Titans make a trade for a running back.
