Through three games, the Tennessee Titans' back field looks as though it could be changing. Derrick Henry's usage seems to be going down, while a new name is emerging.
Rookie Tyjae Spears is a fun, explosive player. He could ultimately take this starting job, as evidenced by his 48 percent snap count through three games. Last week, Henry was only given 11 carries which he took for 20 yards.
In the final year of his contract, and having already been subject of trade rumors in the offseason, it might just be time for the Titans to move on. If they did, these three teams should be calling about a trade.
1. Buffalo Bills
At first glance, this might seem kind of silly. After all, the Bills currently rank 7th in the NFL averaging 149.3 yards per game on the ground. James Cook has been just dandy thus far, and Josh Allen's legs are always a threat. Heck, even Latavius Murray has gotten some work and found the end zone multiple times.
But, imagine the level of threat from that Bills offense if you were to put Henry back there and give him 14-17 opportunities per game, while continuing to get Cook involved and having him touch it 10-12 times per game. Cook is great as a pass catcher and efficient between the tackles, averaging 6.1 yards per carry through three weeks.
However, Henry's dominance and demand for attention would bring the Bills' offense to whole new heights. Stefon Diggs would benefit. The tight ends, Dalton Kincaid and Dawson Knox, would benefit. And of course, Allen benefits by having that type of fearsome threat right behind him in the back field. The possibilities could be frightening.
