If you were one of the many fantasy owners that thought you drafted a huge sleeper in Derrick Henry this season, we've got bad news for you.


ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates has officially halted the Henry hype train in favor of Dion Lewis, and believes Lewis is currently on his way to surpassing Henry on the Tennessee Titans' depth chart.

ESPN fantasy analyst Matthew Berry also shared the same opinion on Lewis overtaking Henry. Even though neither Yates nor Berry can see any further into the future than us mortals, it's not a great sign for Henry's fantasy prospects this year.


Henry's Week 1 performance yielded just 26 rushing yards on 10 carries and one reception for 5 yards. 


This isn't a call to drop him, but it's simply a warning sign that your RB2 or perhaps RB3 in Henry might be slipping down the depth chart come Week 2 and beyond.
