The Tennessee Titans continue to keep hope alive that running back Derrick Henry (foot), the NFL's leading rusher, will be able to return at some point later this season after undergoing surgery on his foot last week. However, one source said that it "would be very surprising if he made it back this season." Fantasy managers must hold Henry until we get confirmation that he absolutely won't be back, but don't get your hopes up. With Henry likely done for the year, the Titans signed veteran Adrian Peterson to be the primary back, starting on Sunday night in a difficult matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. Jeremy McNichols should have more appeal as a flex in PPR leagues, while Peterson should be a touchdown-dependent RB3 in his first game in Tennessee.
The Tennessee Titans officially placed running back Derrick Henry (foot) on Injured Reserve on Monday. Henry will undergo surgery on his foot on Tuesday that is expected to keep him out for six to 10 weeks. The Titans immediately signed veteran Adrian Peterson off the street, and he figures to eventually take over early down duties for the Titans, with Jeremy McNichols and Dontrell Hilliard serving as depth. Peterson, 36, will be a popular waiver-wire pickup this week after rushing for 604 yards on 156 attempts (3.9 yards per carry) in 16 games (10 starts) for the Detroit Lions last year. He could have RB2/3 fantasy value as soon as next Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams if he gets up to speed quickly. McNichols has only seven carries in eight games this year, but he's added 21 receptions for 203 yards and a touchdown, so he'll have appeal in PPR leagues.
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (foot) will have foot surgery on Tuesday morning and is expected to be out for six to 10 weeks. There is a belief that Henry will be back at some point this season, but the timeline of six weeks is probably too soon. A return in the eight- to 10-week range is much more likely for the NFL's top rusher. It's a brutal blow for the Titans and Henry's fantasy managers, but you shouldn't outright drop him, since there's a chance he could be back later this year. Jeremy McNichols will be a priority waiver-wire addition this week, but Dontrell Hilliard could also mix in, and the Titans are expected to look at options outside the organization, most notably Adrian Peterson.
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (foot) will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm that he suffered a "Jones Fracture" in his foot during Sunday's win over the Indianapolis Colts, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Surgery to repair a Jones fracture would shelve Henry for eight weeks, and he could return in January if the Titans make the playoffs. Henry reportedly was getting medical attention on the sideline as his right cleat was off, and the Titans star running back appeared to be walking gingerly towards the end of the first half of Sunday's win over the Colts. The 27-year-old did return to the game, but it seems Henry suffered a significant injury in Week 8. Jeremy McNichols will be the Titans' primary back while Henry is sidelined. McNichols has rushed for 38 yards on seven attempts while catching 21-of-27 targets for 203 yards and a touchdown over eight games. Mekhi Sargent is expected to be called up from the practice squad and could be in the mix for touches out of the Titans backfield. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, with Henry being out indefinitely, running backs Tevin Coleman, David Johnson, Phillip Lindsay, Ty'Son Williams, Melvin Gordon, Ronald Jones II, Mike Davis, and Rashaad Penny are available via trade. Stay tuned for further updates.

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry did not play in Saturday's 34-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Titans continue to rest their starters in the preseason to keep them healthy for the regular-season opener against the Arizona Cardinals on September 12.

The 27-year-old had 2,027 rushing yards on 378 rushing attempts and 17 touchdowns in 2020. King Henry is coming off another dominant season. He is the consensus third overall pick behind Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey and Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook in upcoming fantasy drafts.
Tennessee Titans star running back Derrick Henry has yet to take on a full workload in training camp. The team is attempting to preserve him for the start of the season and of course the long haul. While he's had a reduced workload, he has been taking on more of a coaching role with the offense. Running backs coach Tony Dews said, "We've kind of started calling him 'coach' because he's back there with a strip now and he's calling out all the plays." Henry will rightly be one of the first players off the board in all fantasy drafts this fall. He's coming off yet another dominant season in which he set career-highs in both rushing yards (2,027) and rushing touchdowns (17).
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said that running back Derrick Henry's work ethic allows him to be successful despite his heavy workload. Henry has led the league in rushing the last two seasons, running for 1,540 yards on 303 carries in 2019 and 2,027 yards on 378 carries last year. He became the eighth running back in history to pass the 2,000-yard mark in a single season, and the previous seven RBs haven't come close to reaching back-to-back 2,000-yard campaigns. The Titans and other teams may be more cautious with their backs with an added 17th game of the season, but it sounds as though Henry will continue to have a pretty hefty workload in this run-first offense. The 27-year-old is one of the toughest backs to bring down and will remain a high-end RB1 heading into 2021.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
