3. HB Derrick Henry
Some people expected Henry to go into his contract year with the momentum generated in Decemeber of last year, where he rushed for 625 yards and eight touchdowns.
He hasn’t quite done that yet this season, but he’s still put up solid numbers, rushing for 506 yards and five touchdowns on 135 carries, good for a 3.7 yard per carry average, which is a first down every three plays.
He has had one 100-yard rushing game so far this season, hitting the number on the dot on 27 carries in Week 4 against the Falcons.
Although not a huge part of the Titans’ passing game, he’s also added a receiving touchdown on a 75-yard screen pass that he took to the house in Week 1 against the Browns.
The 2015 Heisman Trophy winner is in the final year of his rookie contract, and while it remains ambiguous whether or not the Titans will extend him, he is still a big part of this offense (literally and figuratively).
