Titans running back Derrick Henry is on a tear the past month. We break down the fantasy football implications of his inclusion on the Week 14 injury report.

The switch to December on the NFL calendar means that more often than not, notable names are going to be regular appearances on the injury report. The Tennessee Titans sat running back Derrick Henry on Wednesday of Week 14 due to a hamstring injury, and are slowly working him back into the mix. He was listed as limited on the Thursday report.

Last week, Henry was listed as limited on Wednesday and Thursday, and then full on Friday before being removed from the final injury report. He will likely not appear on the Titans final injury report, but it will still be something to track heading into Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy football analysis: Titans RB Derrick Henry

The Raiders defense has given up the 11th most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Regardless of the opponent, Henry is a must start in every format and leagues of all sizes. Over the past four weeks, he has averaged 27.4 fantasy points per game in half point PPR leagues. He’s also scored at least two touchdowns in three of the four games. There is no reason to sit him this week.
