2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
The exit of Demarco Murray seemed to be the opening needed to make Derrick Henry a viable RB1, but the free agency addition of Dion Lewis and team's insistence that it will likely run a committee approach, have put a damper on the off-season hype train.

Henry had a rollercoaster of a 2017. He posted four games with more than 15 fantasy points, but he also had five games with fewer than 3 points. His usability was entirely tied to whether he scored a touchdown and while he did manage to score 6 TDs, he was likely a disappointment for those who drafted him as a RB3.

For the most part, Henry spent 2017 as either a RB1 or a bust, which makes it clear that he has a potentially high ceiling if he finds himself with a heavy workload. But, once again, he enters the season with questions surrounding his place on the depth chart. It seems logical to assume Henry will see the bulk of his work on early downs as Lewis is a more adept pass-catcher. Will he finally emerge or will he underperform again? At his current ADP of RB17, the acquisition price seems a bit high, but if reports continue to cause him to slip beyond RB 24, there's a chance he outperforms his draft position and finally delivers for fantasy owners.

News From The Past 90 Days
DeMarco Murray announces retirement
7-year career comes to an end
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jul 13, 2:00 pm

NFL
DeMarco Murray, a three-time Pro Bowl running back, has retired after seven seasons in the NFL. "It's been a long time thinking, the last year or two, and physically, mentally and emotionally, I think it's time for me to hang it up," Murray said while making his announcement Friday on ESPN's NFL Live. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Murray was at the top of his game in 2014 (393-1845-13; 54-416-0) when he finished as the No.1 running back in standard scoring leagues, No.2 in PPR. He was let go by Tennessee this off-season making way for an increased role for youngster Derrick Henry. Murray reportedly met with Detroit, Miami, New Orleans and Seattle before calling it quits.


Dion Lewis could outgain Derrick Henry?
Insider analyzes Titans' backfield
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 5, 5:20 pm

Tennessee Titans
When DeMarco Murray was released, the presumption was that Derrick Henry would likely receive the lion’s share of the carries. The arrival of Dion Lewis gives the Titans the type of pass-catching weapon in the backfield that they have not had in a long time. And it means that there will likely be game-day packages for each back, and both will get their fair share of touches. For fantasy purposes, it is not out of the question that Henry would lead the team in rushing attempts and rushing yards, but that Lewis would probably have more all-purpose yards, between rushing and receiving combined. (Titans Insider - Terry McCormick)

FFToday's Take: The likelihood Henry will be the early-down workhorse/goal-line back and could see in upwards of 250 carries and will see occasional work as a receiver makes it understandable why he is going in the third round of PPR drafts. However, unless owners believe Lewis is going to struggle with injuries, it's hard to comprehend how he is going three rounds later. If things remain the same when drafting season really picks up, Lewis figures to be a steal as a RB3/flex option.


Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis: 1A and 1B
OC Matt LaFleur hints both RBs will be featured
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 5, 2:15 pm

Tennessee Titans
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.
