We go over Derrick Henry’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Titans Week 10 matchup against the Colts on Thursday Night Football.

The Bears defense managed to bottle up Derrick Henry in Week 9, as he rushed 21 times for only 68 yards and no touchdowns to finish with a season low 6.8 fantasy points. This performance was an anomaly for Henry and he will look to bounce back in Week 10. Does he still belong in all lineups despite a very tough matchup? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Titans RB Derrick Henry

The Colts are allowing the second fewest points to opposing running backs this season, with an average of only 13.65 points per game to the position. The matchup is nowhere near ideal, but Henry can not be benched no matter the opponent. He is one of the few three down backs remaining in the NFL and with a workload of an average of 22.75 carries per game, he is an every week starter. Expectations should be tempered this week due to the staunch Colts defense, but Henry remains an RB1.
