According to ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky:

RB Derrick Henry played just 9 snaps (14%) in Week 4

At this point it’s become clear that Henry has been left to operate as nothing but a handcuff behind DeMarco Murray.  The latter has been impressive this season, averaging 5.2 yards per carry, while Henry has hardly made his presence felt (97 yards on 27 carries).

Granted the team is going to remain operating as a run first offense, but even if Henry was going to get 5-9 carries per game it’s hardly enough.  Things would be different if he was working as an option in the passing game, but that too hasn’t been the case:

  • DeMarco Murray – 21 targets
  • Derrick Henry – 3 targets

Consider Henry nothing more than a deep league stash, as opposed to a player who could hold any value on a week-to-week basis.  If you have the room than why not, as we all know the second round pick has significant upside, but in shallower formats feel free to move on.
