Derrick Henry's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Derrick Henry to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 165 projected fantasy points puts him at #18 behind Aaron Jones and ahead of David Montgomery. He has averaged 11.65 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 10.3 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#19) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #28 ranked running back. At 99% ownership, he is also the #18 most highly owned running back. Derrick Henry is expected to come up short of last season's #13 fantasy position rank.

DERRICK HENRY WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Derrick Henry is projected for 9.9 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #20 ranked running back and a starter for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Tevin Coleman but behind Damien Williams. Week 2 is projected to be slightly better based on projected rank (#17). He is projected for 10.5 fantasy points.

DERRICK HENRY IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $6.8K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $5.9K

He is projected for 10.3 FanDuel points and 11.6 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$645 short of $6.8K on FanDuel and -$804 short of $5.9K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
