The Touchdown Titan
But Henry’s carries and yards per run aren’t the only stats that have been getting better as he gets more experience. Just like his volume and efficiency, Derrick Henry’s touchdown total has been consistently getting better since he’s come into the league.
From five his rookie year and to six the following, Derrick Henry saw his touchdown total skyrocket in year three as his volume increased, doubling his touchdown total to 12. And in 2019, he kept getting better, finding the endzone a total of 18 times– and 16 on the ground.

Touchdown production might be another area of concern for Henry, as a large portion of his fantasy production came on a nose for the endzone that might be difficult to replicate. But once again, there should be a reason for optimism that Henry can repeat his gaudy touchdown stats in year five.
Something else that is fighting the idea of regression here, last year the Titans suffered the growing pains of starting the season with three of the offensive line positions in flux. Now the Titans return four of the five starters in front of Derrick Henry as well as continuity in OC and QB.
That familiarity should make the Titans rushing attack even better early on in the season, especially when you look at the difference in success on the left side of the line when 2019 started to where they are now.
The Titans rely on Derrick Henry’s rushing ability all over the field but are leaning on him especially hard when the team gets into the red zone– which may not be a surprise given how successful Henry was from 20 yards to the goal line in 2019.
