The fantasy playoffs roll on, and if you’re an owner of Tennessee Titans running back, Derrick Henry, you’re probably pretty excited about it. What can we expect from him as we get closer to kickoff on Sunday? Let’s take a closer look.

Fantasy Football analysis: Titans RB Derrick Henry

Henry continued his monster status on Sunday in a 46-25 win over the Detroit Lions. Henry rushed the ball 24 times for 147 yards and added a touchdown. This could’ve been an even bigger day as multiple red zone touchdowns were scored without him. He also caught both of the targets that went his way for five yards receiving.

For as good as Henry has been, it probably doesn’t matter a whole lot who the Titans play, but he has a decent matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. Green Bay ranks 21st in the NFL in yards per rushing attempt allowed. In its last game, Green Bay allowed Mike Davis to carry the ball for 59 yards on four attempts in a win over the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Henry is a no-doubt running back No. 1 this weekend and could win plenty of fantasy owners a championship.
