Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is officially inactive for Week 16 vs. the New Orleans Saints. Henry has been dealing with a hamstring injury for the past few weeks, though he was able to suit up and has played in every game this season until now. Henry leads the Titans in rushing with 1,329 yards, second-most in the NFL behind Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb. In such a crucial game for Tennessee’s playoff hopes its surprising that Henry isn’t going to try and make it on the field.
Fantasy Football Analysis: Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry
So with Henry out, the Titans really don’t have a true every-down back. Dion Lewis should see more carries with Khari Blasingame working in as well. Lewis is the handcuff that you want to roll with if you own Henry but they aren’t nearly the same back. Lewis can’t do as much between the tackles and isn’t really a goal line option. Still, he should see a lot of snaps and touches, plus if you’re in PPR then Lewis is a very appealing play.
