I'm lower than most on Henry and I can't even lay the blame on him or Lewis in this one. Zero use of dump offs to help mitigate the pass rush. They just let Baltimore tee off. Terrible play calling.

Curious as to the excuses now, because Lewis played behind the same line with the same workload on the ground. Henry again woefully ineffective.

Haha, it is ridiculous to think one game suddenly changes everything when Lewis had a lower ypc for the season than Henry going into this game.

One game doesn't change a thing. Henry has been this way his whole career.

Henry averaged over 5 ypc against a good BUF defense a couple of weeks ago while Lewis averaged less than 3. By your logic, Henry is the far superior runner.....you clearly see what you want to see and are desperate to have it be true. Today proved nothing.

Could care less about ypc or even Lewis really, just referencing the multitude of excuses people keep making for this guy's continued ineffectiveness.

But you're right. I concede. Henry and his 4 career games over 60 yards, is in fact a stud. I just see what I want to see I guess.

Teams know the Titans are running the ball everytime Henry comes into the game, they dont ever feature him in the passing game so its a pretty easy tell. The whole system sucks, Henry,Lewis,Mariota,Davis all look bad. The problem here starts at the top.

He also only has 4 games in which he has recieved more than 15 carries, see the problem yet?

Beautiful. Ignore that the entire offense has been pathetic the entire year. Both Lewis and Henry have been abysmal running the ball, yet you point all of it on Henry.

A faster version and without the threat of Tom Brady throwing the ball all over the place. If he gets into the second level Henry is gone, Blount could never do that. Teams didnt key on Blount, they keyed on Brady and the pass catches which opened up alot of huge lanes for Blount to run through.

Who cares what the logic is? He doesn't look good. Simple as that.
I've never actually been wrong about fantasy football before. You can trust what I have to say.

He's a bear to bring down if he has enough room to get up to speed, but he needs a runway to get up to it. Otherwise, it's alot of getting tackled near the line of scrimmage.

He likely won't see a ton of 20 carry games because of his lack of receiving ability. So I'm not sure how his situation ever gets drastically better.

He's a polarizing guy. I really think his size has alot to so with it. I get it, dude looks like Super Shredder out there.
