Adding Lewis is going to throw a wet blanket on all the Derrick Henry hype. Tennessee released DeMarco Murray less than week ago and the expectation by many was that Henry would assume a three-down workhorse role this season. Not so fast. Lewis is a better receiving back than Henry and is a very capable inside runner as well. It's likely Henry will be the lead back in this offense but his fantasy value isn't as promising with Lewis in the mix.

Interpretation:  Henry stock has plummeted.

 

The End.

Seriously, Henry just dropped 3 rounds in a ppr. Maybe more. Lewis is really good.

Bump Mariota a bit.  The Tenn offense will be on the field more.  

 

Lewis > Murray of last year.

 

Nice signing.

I think I would agree with the above poster about Mariota.

I think I will bump him up a little bit.

Agreed, with this signing and LaFleur as OC and him fully healed, Mariota will be significantly better this year.

I agree, Mike.   

 

Henry is going to be limited to two-down duty, and probably will wind up splitting carries with Lewis.     

 

 

Bummer for Henry dynasty owners.

Lewis is NOT an every down back and an injury waiting to happen.

 

Did not have more than 15 carries until week 15 last year., Didn't play week 17

 

The way he stops and cuts, he is an injury risk

Sorry but everyone is in the same boat, injury risk.

He's productive and will indeed be a big problem for Henry owners.

This reads like it was written by a bitter Henry dynasty owner that has watched a division foe improve massively in the opening days of free agency.

I bet his stock will drop some, but not that much.

Myself I would rather have Lewis.

But I bet I won't get him, because his stock will be to high.

If Henry's stock does indeed drop let's say to a rb3 I'm going after him.

Nice signing.

Would you like to join my fantasy football league ? Maybe the Titans should get a Wide Receiver who can get more then 4 TDs and stop guessing at RB. Same boat 2 RBs that are mid rounders if they share the backfield, stock goes up if they take turns being injured.

RB3 is #25 or lower at the position. Highly doubt that happens

He's taking over DeMarco Murray's role, whatever it was.

I don't think this will make Henry's numbers go down but it stall his break out once again.

I have Henry as a 3rd round keeper. I am thinking of throwing him back in the pool. I think Dion Lewis will end up getting 60% of the carries as he is a complete RB. The only caviat to keeping Henry is his goal line work. He will be like lagarette Blount. But ifffffff Lewis goes down which has been known to happen then Henry will be a 3 down monster

But I would keep it close, very close.
