Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis: 1A and 1B OC Matt LaFleur hints both RBs will be featured By: Mike Krueger | Jun 5 2018, 2:15 pm
Derrick Henry appears likely to serve on early downs and in short-yardage situations, and Dion Lewis as a receiving threat out of the backfield. But they could be interchangeable.
“Until you get the pads on and really get going through preseason, I look at them both as 1A and 1B,” LaFleur said. “I feel confident in both of those guys. They both bring a little bit different qualities to what they do. But I think we’ve got two really good backs that we’re excited about.” (The Tennessean)
FFToday's Take:For the time being it appears Titans offensive coordinator Matt Lafleur envisions both Henry and Lewis seeing a good chunk of the RB workload which will cap the upside of both in fantasy land. Lewis is more adept in the receiving department making him more attractive in PPR leagues.
