You'd typically assume the overall RB1 to have a receiving profile. Not Derrick Henry. He gets it all done on the ground. Talk about cheat codes. Henry was on a breakneck speed to claim both the rushing and fantasy RB1 titles in 2021 before going down to a foot injury in week 8. He had already amassed 219 carries for 869 yards by the time he was injured and was on pace for 483 touches. We can't fault the man for hurting his foot when he received what is considered a full season's workload for most running backs by week 8. By the end of the 2021 regular season, there were 18 running backs to finish the 2021 season with over 200 carries. Henry still finished 10th overall in rush attempts despite not playing half of the season. In regards to fantasy points, Henry was the clear leader among running backs by week 8, with 184.3 in PPR formats, while averaging 23 fantasy points per game. Jonathan Taylor was a distant second with 141.9 fantasy points. Dating back to 2019, the Titans have ranked first, second, and seventh in rush attempts per game. He is a heavy focal point of the Tennessee Titans offense and should be viewed as a consensus top 5 running back going into the 2022 season.
