Friday update: Derrick Henry did not practice on Friday, meaning he missed all three days practice sessions. He is listed as questionable, but said earlier in the week that he’ll be ready for Sunday. It is likely a matter of late season rest.

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has been on a crazy roll the past month, and this is coming in spite of being banged up. Henry has been dealing with a hamstring injury, and he has missed two straight days of practice in Week 15, according to beat writer Turron Davenport.

Last week, Henry was a DNP on Wednesday, limited on Thursday, and a full participant on Friday. He was removed from the final injury report and was never in question. He was asked on Thursday about playing this week, and he said he’ll be ready to go, according to reporter Kayla Anderson.

Fantasy football analysis: Titans RB Derrick Henry

For the past four weeks, Henry has been the best fantasy running back. He should play and is a must start in the Titans biggest game of the season. The Texans have given up the seventh most fantasy points to running backs, and Henry should run over them. On the off-chance he does not play, Dion Lewis would get the start. That won’t be happening.
