Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 25 times for 84 yards, good for just 3.4 yards per attempt, in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Henry also did not have any receptions on two targets.
Huddle Up: Henry didn't have an awful game, but he didn't grab large chunks of real estate while also being held out of the end zone. He'll look to get back on track in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ran 31 times for 116 yards in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos and he had three grabs for 15 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Henry didn't rack up huge chunks of real estate, as his longest run was 13 yards, and he averaged just 3.7 yards per tote. But he still did the job for fantasy owners. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 2 against the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is 'catching the ball more confidently,' according to QB Ryan Tannehill Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Huddle Up: Henry led the NFL with 303 carries, 1,540 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns in 2019, but he had just 18 receptions for 206 yards and two more scores. Getting more work as a receiver could help lessen the contact he takes on the ground and could move him closer to RB1 in PPR formats.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry left practice early Monday, Aug. 17, leaving the field with a trainer before working on a stationary bike while his teammates finished up the session. Head coach Mike Vrabel didn't provide any specifics after practice.
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like it was anything major, especially if he rode the bike in plain view rather than receiving medical attention in private. Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief for now, as it sounds like much ado about nothing.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry agreed to a new four-year contract with the Titans Wednesday, July 15. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Titans were able to sign Henry and Ryan Tannehill to long-term deals this offseason, so fantasy players should expect a similar offense this season. Henry will receive plenty of carries each game and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is expected to reach a long-term contract extension agreement before the deadline, according to sources.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is unlikely to strike a long-term deal by the franchise tag deadline Wednesday, July 15, according to a source. He's scheduled to make $10.27 million and become a free agent next offseason.
Huddle Up: Henry is a stud RB1 in fantasy, but he suffers in PPR formats and may drop closer to a midrange RB1.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has less than a week to sign a long-term contract, or he will play the 2020 season under the franchise tag. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel stressed Thursday, July 9, deal's like these take time and patience is needed on both sides. 'Derrick signed his franchise tender, he's under contract,' Vrabel said. '... Having been involved with the NFL for a lot of years, getting deals done is about being patient, hopefully keeping them private and confidential. So I'm going to try to respect that, and understand that we love Derrick and he understands how important he is to our football team. Again, his leadership that grew last year, I'm looking forward, I know our team is looking for more of that this year.'

Huddle Up: The two sides have a week to reach a deal or Henry will play on the one-year contract he signed. Henry is one of the top running back in the NFL and should be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.
