Tennessee Titans' running back Derrick Henry had the night of a lifetime last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars, rushing for 238 yards and four touchdowns. Much to the chagrin of fantasy owners, mostly everyone had him on their bench. With the game being played on Thursday, owners had all those extra days to stew over their decision. 

For the owners that left him on their bench, they missed a truly historic performance from the former Alabama standout. Henry was only the second player in NFL history to have a rushing touchdown of 50-plus yards and 90-plus -- the only other player, also a Titan, Chris Johnson. 

Henry draws the New York Giants in Week 15, who are allowing the ninth-most FanDuel fantasy points per game (24.1) to running backs this season. There is some skepticism, however, as the Giants opened as three-point favorites. 

Regardless, it'll be tough to leave this guy on your bench for the second week in a row. Henry had an absolutely brutal start to the year, with no double-digit fantasy-point performances over the Titans first six games. Since then, he has posted five of them over these last seven games.
