Derrick Henry owners can breathe easy as the Titans RB returned to his typical fantasy form in Week 2, leading all scorers with 47.7 fantasy points.
This massive Week 2 performance came on the heels of a surprising 10.7 point Week 1 against the Cardinals, where Henry averaged 3.4 yards per carry and failed to find the endzone for just the third time dating back to Week 10 of the 2020 season.
Henry Re-Solidifies Role as Top Fantasy Back
The only player who has been more consistent than Henry over the last few fantasy seasons has been Christian McCaffrey, thanks in large part to his extensive role in the receiving game. Henry and the Titans offense is seemingly out to rectify this, as he has already reeled in nine passes across the last two weeks.
His 200+ all purpose yards and three rushing touchdowns in Week 2 proves that any potential cliff so many believe Henry is soon going to run off, is actually miles down the road.
Henry’s 47.7 point performance catapulted him to the top fantasy scoring RB, and the fourth highest scorer in the entire NFL, trailing only T. Brady, C. Kupp and K. Murray by very slim margins.
Barring any injury, Derrick Henry should once again finish the year as a top three scoring RB, and should be a main-stay in your starting lineup.
