Derrick Henry’s stock: Up
Sure, running back Derrick Henry didn’t have his best game by any stretch in Week 4, but there were still enough positives to give his stock a bump. Henry finished the game against the Falcons with 27 carries for 100 yards, while also adding one catch for eight yards.
The good news here is that the usually even split in snaps at running back didn’t happen on Sunday. Henry dominated in that regard, as he played on 75 percent of the teams snaps, as compared to fellow back Dion Lewis’ 28 percent share.
Lewis saw just four carries for 16 yards, and was also irrelevant in the passing game with four catches for four yards.
Now, there’s a bit of a disclaimer here. The Titans were leading for most of this game and were clearly running the clock out with Henry, which is why he got the season-high of carries that he did. However, it continues to be abundantly clear that Lewis is not going to have a significant role on this team in 2019 that will threaten Henry’s workload or touches.
Hopefully for the Titans and Henry’s fantasy owners, Lewis continues to fade away more and more as the weeks go on, no matter what the game script dictates.
