5. Derrick Henry: RB
You may not know it considering his poor usage at the beginning of the season, but Derrick Henry is 5th in the NFL (and 2nd in the AFC) in rushing yards this season:
He is also tied for an AFC lead with 8 rushing TDs and owns the lead in total TDs with 10. All of that and we know that Henry doesn’t truly get rolling until November and December, which means that the best is likely yet to come.
Moving away from stats and just going off the eye test, how many other AFC running backs would you rather have? Nick Chubb, Josh Jacobs and Leonard Fournette are the only two backs that I think are close and with Henry really starting to heat up (4 TDs and nearly 300 yards in the last 6 quarters) it really feels like Henry is about to break away from the pack.
