Derrick Henry will rush OVER 74.5 yards (-115 BetMGM) against the Texans
Start Time: Sunday, October 23, M&T Bank Stadium 1:00pm ET
Broadcast: CBS Sports / Paramount+ / NFL+
Another back who is finally getting some run is Henry. The Titans appears to have him on some touch count in Weeks 1-3 and they looked like a team that was sinking fast. Henry rushed for 192 yards in those three games, but it is depressing to think how many more yards and points they denied him of. Then you look at the last three games and Henry touched the ball a combined 60 rushes for 344 yards. But he’s also been heavily involved in the passing game catching eight passes for 73 yards. He’s going to surpass his career mark of 19 pass receptions by Week 9.
There could be some concern about Malik Willis starting this week for Ryan Tannehill but we’re encouraged even more by this move. The Titans, are conservative on offense and even if Willis runs too, he is going to be handing the ball off to Henry a great number of times. By the way, the Texans give up the most fantasy points to opposing running backs, so there’s a track record and a history that this is going to be a monster day for Henry.
