Tennessee Titans: Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry 2020 MVP odds
What are the 2020 NFL MVP odds for Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry?
Both Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry and quarterback Ryan Tannehill had breakout seasons in 2019, and as a result both are on the map for the 2020 NFL Most Valuable Player award.
Henry won the rushing title with 1,540 yards, and was also tied for the league lead in rushing touchdowns with 16 before absolutely dominating in the first two rounds of the playoffs. Bear in mind, the Alabama product also missed one game and still posted those numbers.
As for Tannehill, he started 10 games and posted 2,742 yards and 22 touchdowns to six picks, while also rushing for four more scores. Adding to his impressive season, Tannehill finished first in passer rating (117.5) and third in completion percentage (70.3).
Both players took home awards in 2019. Henry was named the FedEx Ground Player of the Year, and Tannehill earned the AP NFL Comeback Player of the Year.
According to The Action Network, Henry (+6000) has the ninth-best odds to win the MVP in 2020, while Tannehill (+10000) is tied for the 11th-best odds. Leading the way in MVP odds is Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes (+400).
Those odds seem pretty fair, but I think Henry has the much better chance of the two to take home the MVP next season.
After all, he didn’t really get started until the second half of 2019 as his offensive line took time to gel, and Henry could post even crazier numbers than he did with a full 16-game slate of Tannehill under center and a much more cohesive group upfront.
Before the Titans can watch Tannehill and Henry make a run at MVP in 2020, the team has to re-sign them, as both are free agents this offseason.
Thankfully for the Titans, general manager Jon Robinson will have two tags (franchise and transition) to use if need be, on top of just flat out re-signing them to long-term deals, so chances are both will return in 2020.
