Tennessee Titans Fantasy Spin
Derrick Henry produced 149 yards and a touchdown on 26 rushing attempts while supplying three catches for 17 yards on three targets Sunday in the Titans’ Week 13 victory over the Colts. Henry steered the ship once again, clearing the century mark in rushing yards for the third straight game. Sunday's eruption put him over 1,000 yards for the season, a mark he also reached in 2018. Henry collected his 13th touchdown on a fourth-and-one opportunity in the third quarter, bullying his way to the pylon for a 13 yards. The former Heisman winner out-touched backfield-mate Dion Lewis by a commanding 28-1 margin in Sunday's victory, extending Tennessee's win streak to three in the process. CBS announcer Kevin Harlan called Henry a "sledgehammer" during Sunday's broadcast, an apt description for the Titans' fourth-year havoc-wreaker. He lost a fumble on his first play from scrimmage, but that gaffe was a mere footnote in an otherwise dominant performance for Henry, who has become a weekly headache for opposing defenses. Henry will be a no-doubt RB1 when the Titans visit Oakland in Week 14.
Oakland Raiders Fantasy Spin
Josh Jacobs (shoulder) remained sidelined on Thursday. Jacobs has had his practice reps rationed since first getting injured in Week 7, but the back-to-back DNPs come one day after it was revealed he has been playing through a fracture. With their season headed in the wrong direction, perhaps the Raiders are thinking about getting Jacobs some rest. We still would not consider him guaranteed to miss Sunday's game against the Titans. Friday will be important, but Jacobs could end up a game-time decision after a week of DNPs. Were Jacobs to sit, DeAndre Washington would probably take the lead on early downs with Jalen Richard handling pass catching and mixing in for carries.
