Tennessee Titans impending free-agent RB Derrick Henry said that Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's contract 'is the floor' for what he will be expecting with his next contract.
Huddle Up: After leading the NFL in rushing and carrying the Titans to the AFC Championship Game, Henry is in prime position to receive a huge contract. Even if he doesn't end up back in Tennessee, Henry should be a workhorse and a RB1 wherever he lands.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry, an impending free agent, said Thursday, Jan. 30, that 'I definitely want to stay in Tennessee.'
Huddle Up: Henry's eye-popping late-season run -- 1,183 rushing yards and 12 TDs over his final nine games, including three playoff contests -- certainly states his free-agent case, but he'll be fighting the modern NFL RB big-money contract stigma, not to mention the fact that QB Ryan Tannehill also is a free agent. Wherever Henry ends up, though, in 2020, he'll be in the fantasy RB1 conversation.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has rushed for 377 yards on 64 carries in two wins this postseason, but Kansas City Chiefs DE Frank Clark says he isn't intimidated heading into the AFC Championship matchup with the Titans on Sunday, Jan. 19. 'He's not hard to hit,' Clark was quoted as saying on NFL Network. 'He's just a big guy -- 240, 245, 250 (pounds). Honestly he should be running harder at his weight and size. I don't see no difficulty in tackling him. ... He's just easy to me up front because I don't look at any running back like they can't be tackled. He's not one of the best guys at breaking tackles to me, honestly.'
Huddle Up: Henry is on a truly historic run -- with only Terrell Davis owning more 150-yard postseason games (four) than Henry's three -- and it will be challenge for Clark and the K.C. D, which ranked in the bottom fourth of the league in allowing 128.2 rushing yards per game and 4.9 yards per carry, to slow down -- let alone shut down -- Henry and the run-first Titans.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 23 times for 188 yards and two scores in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Titans will take on the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 19.
Huddle Up: The Titans won that game 35-32 in Patrick Mahomes' first game back from his knee injury. The Chiefs could neutralize him by scoring early and often, but Mahomes threw for 446 yards and three scores, and the Titans remained in it. Henry is arguably the best running back in fantasy remaining in the playoffs.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (hamstring) said Thursday, Dec. 26, that he's ready to return after sitting out Week 16 with a hamstring injury. 'Anytime you can get some time to rest it's a good thing,' Henry said. 'I love football. I love playing the game. I'm definitely ready.'
Huddle Up: It was a tough pill for Henry owners to swallow last weekend as he missed his first game of the season. Fill-in starter Dion Lewis wasn't quite able to fill the bill, totaling 87 scoreless yards on 16 touches, but it looks like Henry will be back among the elite RB1 options this week. Just monitor the situation up to kickoff Sunday.
