There might not be a hotter player in fantasy football right now than Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry. He’s the runaway rushing leader with 588 yards, and his six touchdowns are tied for second on the leaderboard. Needless to say, he’s one of fantasy football’s most valuable players, but what about this week’s game against the Steelers?

Fantasy Football analysis: Titans RB Derrick Henry

Henry’s scored a pair of rushing touchdowns in each of his last three games. He was absolutely on fire last week against the Texans, rolling up 212 yards to go with those scores. He even tacked on 52 receiving yards to really make fantasy teams that had him smile.

The Steelers have yet to allow a 100-yard rusher this season, and running backs have only scored a total of three times against Pittsburgh’s defense. But Henry’s on a roll, and he’s just too good to leave on the bench this week (or any week).
