Beast Freed: Derrick Henry to be Fed Early and Often in 2019

Choo, Chooooo! We’re back on the Derrick Henry train. After not one, but two years of leading the Henry hype train, we just needed ONE quote for the 2019 season to hitch our wagons back on to the beastly running back and ride him to his first career RB1 season. Henry dick teased us to the max and made us pretty pissed at Mike Vrabel at the end of the fantasy season when he erupted for 625 yards and eight touchdowns in his final five games of the season — highlighted by a 238 yard, four touchdown throttling of the Jaguars defense. Vrabel and Titans GM Jon Robinson made it clear that the team plans on riding Henry early and often to begin the 2019 season, which has made us shoot Henry up to RB13 (+5 vs ECR) on our most recent Big Board

Vrabel most certainly thinks Henry will be a major piece to new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith’s offense.

“I think that is where the whole plan would like to start,” Vrabel said. “If Derrick can do what he did at the end of the year at the start this year, he’s certainly going to get a lot more opportunities.”

Although some may say it’s the typical coach speak, this is the first time that the Titans have really backed Henry as their workhorse back. They initially drafted him into a committee with a healthy DeMarco Murray, then after a playoff breakthrough in 2016, they spent money on the talented Dion Lewis to fit Matt LeFleur’s scheme. But after battling Lewis for throughout the season, Henry finally showcased his three-down ability during the team’s final five games.

Vrabel, we beg you. Please, do the right thing.
