When you say pass, would you take him as a rb4, or passing based on his current ranking?

Yeah, I really was vague, wasn't I.  Sorry.  RB4 is probably the earliest I'd consider him.  Currently his ADP is late 4th round and as a low end RB2.  As it stands, there's a 0.0% chance (barring injury), that's he's an RB4 come Labor Day (which is the general area of when my drafts are).  After 2.75 seasons of 'bleh', I'm not going to let 4 games completely change my mind.  Even then, it was only 2 big games, a decent game, and a "meh" game at the end.  I'm not buying.  He's going to have to have a good full season before he convinces me.

Yeah I agree, he doesn’t even get going until the second half of the season, can’t dradt him as a rb2. 

Rb 3-4 at best.  

Non ppr.

honestly, he is a pretty one dimensional back.   he does not really catch a lot of passes.

hes a player, but in Today's NFL if you dont have the pass catching abilities, your upside will always be limited.

Unless he's top 3 in yards rushing, he will never be a RB1.   even then  it might be sketchy unless he turns into a TD machine.

I think this guy tops out as a top end RB2.   Keep in mind the phrase 'tops out' means thats the max upside.  Meaning you should draft him lower than this.

Likely as a mid range to top notch RB3. 

this way, if he gives you RB3 value, your team wont be hurt and you wont be disappointed.

if you draft him as a top notch RB2 (or higher) do so at your own risk (and peril)  This is the kind of draft pick that kills drafts if you pick him too high.

4.5 / 4.2 / 4.9 YPC 

23 total touchdowns in 3 seasons (7.6 per) 

only 540 touches in 3 seasons (180 per)

Yes, Derrick Henry had a monster 2 game stretch against the Jags and Giants in 2018. 

No, he is not an elite or even good pass catching back.

However, opportunity is a big part of fantasy production. Henry was second fiddle to DeMarco for the start of his career and contended with the free agent signing of Dion Lewis last year. (I should know, I was sadly on the Dion Lewis hype train). 

Dion Lewis is still there but he never found a place in this offense. If Henry can get a consistant, nice volume of carries, i'd be fine with him as a low end RB2 with big time upside on any given week.

I think Lewis is the key to being able to evaluate Henry.  

I think Lewis gets more work this season. 

Henry as a lot of upside, if you know what two or three games to start him. 

Im not so sure how many played him vs the jags last season , when he scored 47 non ppr ff points with only 17rushes. 

I think that game was more about the Jags def diffently given up.  

Really think Lewis as a rebound season with the Titans, he won’t surpass Henry as their rb1, but he will be more used.

Roger Saffold is a HUGE upgrade for this line.  They basically replaced the weakest player on the line, with arguably the strongest.

Keep him in a dynasty or try and cash him in at a high value? Obviously it depends on the offer but unless I am blown away I will keep him. Love the o line upgrade and who knows what will happen the 1st two games this year.
