Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is only one of two running backs that has forced at least 50 missed tackles in each of the last two seasons.
Huddle Up: Henry posted a career-high 2,027 yards this season and has recorded at least 12 touchdowns in each of the last three seasons. He will continue to be one of the focal points on offense for the Titans and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry was named The Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year Saturday, Feb. 6.
Huddle Up: Henry topped 2,000 yards on his way to his second straight rushing title. He also led the NFL in rushing touchdowns for the second year in a row, and he has found the end zone a total of 35 times over the past two seasons. The centerpiece of Tennessee's offense, he will enter 2021 as one of the safest first-round options in all formats.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry led all running backs with 75 forced missed tackles this season, and his 1,490 rushing yards after contact were the most in the league.
Huddle Up: Henry has been a fantasy monster since Ryan Tannehill took over as the Tennessee quarterback. His massive workload will likely take a toll at some point, but there is no reason he shouldn't deliver another RB1 campaign in 2021.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (non-injury) practiced in full and was removed from the injury report Friday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: Henry has followed the same practice regimen at the end of the week for four straight weeks, getting a limited session in on Thursday before returning to a full practice Friday. The 27-year-old has logged at least 23 touches each of those weeks and in six of his last seven outings overall, so it's reasonable to expect another huge workload from him on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has rushed for 100-plus yards in back-to-back games against the Baltimore Ravens heading into their wild-card matchup Sunday, Jan. 10. The only running back with three straight 100-yard games against the Ravens was the Pittsburgh Steelers' Jerome Bettis in 1996-97.
Huddle Up: Henry has rushed for at least 156 yards in three of his five career playoff games, including a career postseason-high 195 vs. the Ravens in the divisional round last season. Henry should get his yards again Sunday, and the Ravens' best bet will likely be focusing on outscoring the Titans, given Tennessee's extremely shaky defense.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (non-injury) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: Henry has been limited in practice each of the previous three Thursdays, only to handle at least 23 touches in each game three days later. If the Titans are to pull the upset on the Baltimore Ravens for the second straight postseason, they'll need another big effort from their 2,000-yard rusher. Despite the difficult matchup, Henry is a good bet to run for over 100 yards and find the end zone at least once.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Henry will be facing one of the worst run defenses in the NFL this week and should have an outstanding game. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (non-injury) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Henry likely will receive his normal workload and should have an outstanding game against the Houston Texans defense. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry carried the ball 23 times for 98 yards in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: For most backs coming up two yards short of the century mark would be a solid performance, but for Henry it had to be considered a disappointment. It was just the second time in his last seven games that Henry failed to top 100 yards and his third without a score. Look for a bounce back from Henry next Sunday against the Texans -- in the earlier meeting between the teams, Henry posted a season-high 264 total yards and two touchdowns. He's a high-end RB1 in the season finale.
