Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 19. It's his first practice since Day 1 of training camp.
Huddle Up: Henry is suddenly a strong value as an RB2 at the end of the third round. He has long struggled with consistent production over the course of a full season, but he dominated at the end of the 2018 season and has the added incentive of a contract year. His ADP is likely to rise quickly now that he's back on the field.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (undisclosed) worked on the side during practice Monday, Aug. 12.
Huddle Up: Henry appears to be making good progress in his recovery, but fantasy players should continue to keep an eye on the situation. He will receive a majority of the carries this season if he is healthy and can be a No. 2 fantasy back.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (calf) was able to work out on the side during practice Sunday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: After a strong finish to last season, Henry is finally expected to be treated like a workhorse back. At worst, he should be a volume-based RB2, and he has legitimate RB1 upside.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (calf) is wearing a walking boot while recovering from a strained calf muscle that is expected to sideline him about two weeks, a source said Tuesday, July 30. The injury is not considered serious, and the team is playing it cautious.
Huddle Up: Something to keep an eye on, but Henry should recover well in time before the games that matter. He remains a solid RB2 pick.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, July 29.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (leg) was spotted with a walking boot on his left foot after being injured during the first day of training camp Friday, July 26, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation. Head coach Mike Vrabel said Henry was listed as day-to-day and added that the injury was not serious Friday, but did not provide an update on his condition Saturday, July 27.
Huddle Up: It is unclear if Henry injured his left foot or ankle but he will almost certainly be held out of practice for several days. He is expected to receive the bulk of the carries for the Titans this year and should be viewed as a decent RB2 option in standard fantasy formats.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (undisclosed) and WR A.J. Brown (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Saturday, July 27.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see when Henry and Brown will be able to return. Henry is coming off a terrific 2018 season and can be a No. 2 running back in standard leagues if he is healthy. Brown should have a decent role in the passing game and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ran for 625 yards and eight touchdowns on 97 carries in five December games last season. New offensive coordinator Arthur Smith intends to ride Henry in 2019, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's website.
Huddle Up: Henry is entering the final year of his contract and has a solid offensive line in front of him, which may be the two most important reasons why the Titans may not care about running him into the ground. Other reasons may include Smith not knowing if Marcus Mariota can hold up his end of the deal. If Smith stays true to his word, Henry has as good of a chance to lead the league in rushing as any back.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry will be the main running back in 2019 after finishing strong in 2018, according to general manager Jon Robinson. 'He proved that he can step in there and carry the load, and we'll try to put that right back on him,' Robinson said. 'We'll certainly be mindful of the carries that he's getting and the touches that he's getting.'
Huddle Up: Henry rushed for 625 yards and eight touchdowns in five December games and will receive a majority of carries next season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry will be a big part of the offense in 2019 as offensive coordinator Arthur Smith said they plan to run a lot of zone blocking schemes. 'Derrick will be a big part of the offense,' Smith said. 'He has a rare skill set. Derrick's a home-run hitter. Zone is a great starting point for us, but there are a lot of schemes that fit Derrick and fit Dion (Lewis), or whoever else will be on our roster that we will hand the ball (to.) Gaps, pin and pulls, zone reads, but there's a certain mentality that we want to play with coming off the football. We want to be physical and knock people back.'
Huddle Up: Henry emerged into a solid RB2 this season with a 215-1,059-12 line. He doesn't factor in much in the passing game, which suppresses his value in PPR leagues. However, he figures to be another supplemental piece to your roster early in drafts in 2019.
