Ryan Tannehill's late-game heroics may have been the biggest story for the Tennessee Titans' offense in Week 10, but Derrick Henry's huge game can't be ignored, either.

Already ranking eighth among all RBs with an average of 14.1 fantasy points per game coming into the week, Henry racked up 188 yards and two TDs on the ground in a win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Something of an outlier as an elite fantasy RB that doesn't contribute much in the receiving game, Henry is now averaging 18.7 carries and 1.9 targets per game on the year.

Those two touchdowns also bring Henry up to 10 on the year, with eight on the ground and another two in the receiving game. This is his second consecutive season with double-digit scores, as he rushed for 12 in 2018.

The Titans' offense also seems to have found new life with Tannehill at the helm, scoring at least 20 points in each of the last four games, with an average of 26.3 per game in that stretch versus 16.3 per game over the first six. With the offense performing better as of late, Henry should continue to see plenty of scoring opportunities.

With Henry's production backed up by a huge workload in a suddenly-explosive offense, he has a good shot at remaining one of the league's most productive fantasy assets. Consider him a solid RB1 option the rest of the way.
