We are in the middle of December and on to round two of the fantasy football playoffs, which can only mean one thing — Derrick Henry is dominating football games. Henry was the RB1 in Week 14 in a prime matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, busting out for 222 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and Week 15 looks like more of the same. Henry draws a Detroit Lions defense that has given up the fourth-most rushing yards in the league and could be without quarterback Matthew Stafford, setting up a dream game script for Henry to receive 20+ carries. Henry looks poised to be the RB1 again this week, and against a subpar Green Bay Packers’ defense in Week 16, Henry could very well be this year’s league-winning running back.
