Derrick Henry’s Stock Takes a Hit with Dion Lewis Addition

The Titans went out and signed Dion Lewis in free agency who fits new OC Matt LeFleur’s offense — which is predicated on merging the running and passing game — like a glove; plummeting Derrick Henry’s Opportunity and Usage Score.

Derrick Henry went from a legit RB1 who would have warranted a late-first, early-second round pick, to a player who’s currently ranked amongst the likes of Kenyan DrakeCarlos HydeAlex Collins and Rex Burkhead. Sure, things will likely change once training camp rolls around and we get some clarity on how the two backs will be utilized, but it’s extremely difficult to be optimistic about Henry right now. The former Crimson Tide bruiser may be in-line for a double-digit touchdown season, yet the chances of him fulfilling our lofty fantasy dreams are slim. Dion Lewis carries the better fantasy outlook of the two right now and frankly, it might not be debatable.
