Derrick Henry Continues to Punish as he Chases Fantasy Playoff MVP Status

Derrick Henry rumbled to 170 yards and two touchdowns on 33 carries while catching his lone target for no gain Sunday in Tennessee’s Week 15 victory over the Giants.

What. A. Game. The 33 carries were a career-high for Henry, while both of his touchdowns were of the goal-line variety. He also completed a six-yard pass to Tajae Sharpe, because why not? Henry’s crooked stat line was obviously aided by poor tackling, but that shouldn’t take away from what was another monster performance by the former Heisman Trophy winner. The third-year pile-pusher enforced his will on the Giants all afternoon, stiff-arming opponents into oblivion. It was a second straight tour de force for Henry, who has now amassed 408 yards and six touchdowns on 50 carries (8.16 yards per attempt) over his last two outings. He’s out-touched backfield-mate Dion Lewis by a commanding 51-25 margin during that span. Now entrenched as the undoubted focal point of Tennessee’s offense, Henry will be playable as an RB1 when the Titans host Washington in Week 16. The talented 24-year-old could end up being a league-winner in fantasy.


I really want to strangle every single coach down there in Tennessee for depriving us of what could have been an orgasmic season. The RSJ has been all-in on the idea of Derrick Henry being a workhorse back for two full years now and each time the team signs some other stupid RB to split carries with. SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN HE GETS THE ROCK CONSISTENTLY?! GOOD THINGS HAPPEN!

Anyways, Henry’s volume right now is mouth watering and with a matchup against the Redskins in Week 16 this wild ride should continue through the fantasy finals. After two monster back to back games, there’s physically no way possible you could even think of benching him for Week 16. He very well could have you lifting the hardware next Sunday.
