News: 7 days agoHenry carried the ball 35 times for 182 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Seahawks. He added six receptions for 55 yards.
Spin: Henry appeared to be in for another disappointing game to open the season as he had only 35 yards on 13 carries through two quarters. However, he keyed a comeback effort for the Titans in the second half by finding the end zone from 60, nine and one yards away. While hardly the highlight of his box score, Henry also tied for the team lead in receptions. His work in the passing game has always been a shortcoming, making it possible that his role in the offense only increases if he can maintain this success as a pass-catcher.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: As if Henry's 303-1540-16 rushing line in 2019 wasn't good enough, the oversized superstar back posted an incredible 378-2027-17 line on the ground last season. He's now led the league in carries, rushing yards and rushing TDs each of the past two seasons. He finished both seasons as a top-five fantasy back despite totaling 55 targets during the span. The lack of receiving work does lead to the occasional bust week, as Henry finished outside the top-30 RBs four times last season. Henry is now 27 years old, but has shown no sign of slowing down, having finished no lower than ninth in YAC each of the past four seasons. He's a solid RB1 in PPR and an elite play in non-PPR formats.
