Is Derrick Henry For Real?

Matt Woolsey | December 27th, 2018

I remember watching Derrick Henry when he was in Alabama and was very high on him coming into the NFL. The landing spot in Tennessee behind the newly signed DeMarco Murray was less than desirable. But ever so often did we get a glimpse of what Henry could be as the starter. Then this past offseason the Titans moved on from Murray and made Henry the guy. Sure they brought in Dion Lewis as your third-down change of pace guy, but Henry is that first/second down bruiser so it was expected. Plus Lewis had a history of being injured throughout the season.

Buying, Selling, and Trading on the Fantasy Market – Week 2

Brian DeWester | September 13th, 2018

Trading in fantasy football isn’t exactly for the risk-averse. Although, it would be hard to imagine a football season without it. And there is nothing quite like putting together a trade offer that ends up helping your team in the long run. The difficulty is not only finding that deal but also weighing the potential risk versus the potential gain. For instance, the aftermath of Week 1 provides ample opportunity to take advantage of some serious tilting. However, there is the risk of overreacting and falling victim to the dangers of small sample sizes.

Whatever you choose to do, keep in mind that not every trade can fit into the “buy low, sell high” archetype. Sometimes it makes sense to buy high; especially, if you think the stock of the player will continue to rise. The same can be said for selling low. So, without further adieu, here are some trends and players that I’m buying/selling after the first week.

Frank Dyevoich | August 8th, 2018

The running back position once again reigns supreme in fantasy football. There seemed to be a trend leaning toward wide receiver dominance given the consistency of the guys at the top, but the elite play of the NFL’s best running backs over the past few seasons quickly put a stop to that. When preparing for your draft, you want to separate your running backs into tiers so you can find the best values without sacrificing production. Here is the second installment of Blood, Sweat, and Tiers. The first article on the rookies is here.

Thunder and Lightning in the Titans’ Backfield

Scott Burke | July 15th, 2018

The 2018 offseason saw the Tennessee Titans say goodbye to former All-Pro running back DeMarco Murray. Over the past two seasons, the now-retired Murray had split time with former Alabama Crimson Tide star running back Derrick Henry. The two offered a versatile one-two punch for a young up-and-coming Titans offense. With the release of Murray, it was expected that Henry would assume the lead back duties for the Titans. However, shortly into free agency, the team from “Music City” signed former New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis to a 4-year $19.8 million contract. Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur referred to Henry and Lewis as “1A and 1B” in the Titans backfield.
