Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
He's one of the most consistent early-down grinders in the NFL. Heading into Week 12 action ranked ninth in the league in rushing yards and second (tie) in rushing touchdowns, Henry has either rushed for at least 100 yards or scored at least once in 10 of 12 games played. He's averaging 20 touches, 99.9 total yards and 1.0 touchdown per contest. With just 13 catches on the season, Henry's receiving role obviously remains small. Henry is a strong play versus a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that has permitted the sixth-most rushing yards to enemy tailbacks. Jacksonville also has been gouged for at least 170 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown in two straight contests.
Rushing: 87 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 1 Receptions, 16 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
It took three years, but we finally saw the Derrick Henry we were sold on as a draftee from Alabama; a super-sized bulldozer that can also move side-to-side. There was one major problem with his usage though, when taking a step back and looking at his 2018 as a whole. He was heavily leaned on when the Titans played from ahead, but often found himself on the sideline when playing from behind. This would also explain his continued limited usage in the passing game, netting just 20 targets all season - which was still a career high. Due to it, he is a risky week-to-week start, especially in PPR leagues, as his weekly floor is exceptionally low. He can still win a week for you almost by himself but only when game flow dictates.

Rushing: 456 Yards, 5 TD.
Receiving: 8 Receptions, 85 Yards, 2 TD.
