Here are your Week 1 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Start.
Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins
With DeMarco Murray retired, fantasy owners will finally see what Henry can do as the feature back in Tennessee. Look for the Titans to infuse head coach Mike Vrabel’s personality in to the offense and pound Henry throughout the game. Provided the Titans can pass enough to keep the Dolphins off balance, Henry could be a big bear to try and bring down in the second half of the game. The Dolphins lost one of the better defensive tackles in Ndamukong Suh and while they got Robert Quinn, Suh is the better run defender and will have to show they won’t miss his presence. Henry will still share touches with scat-back Dion Lewis, but we expect to see the Titans’ work horse to get 15-20 touches. – Ernie Estrella
