Derrick Henry 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook
Henry is a fantasy stud, and if he stays healthy, he should be able to repeat what he did last year. Many people are worried about the addition of Julio Jones taking away carries from Henry, but when you have an offense built to run like the Titans do, there’s no need to get away from what has worked.

Derrick Henry 2021 Fantasy Football Draft Value (PPR)
Henry is easily a first-round pick. His value does drop in PPR leagues, but when a running back can put up 2000 yards like Henry is, you’re willing to spend a top-five pick on him. Most would see Henry as RB5 heading into the season, and in a PPR league, that’s a fair assessment. However, if Henry does fall in your draft beyond six or seven, he’s worth an immediate grab. He will put up big numbers and will be a force yet again, barring injury.
