I’m bringing you The List later than usual this week, and without notes for the positional rankings. What gives, you ask? I got married back in March, but my wife and I were just able to have our wedding celebration this past weekend, so I’m several days behind with everything this week. The poor woman has barely seen me on an NFL Sunday over the past four years, so I figured I owed her at least one Sunday. Thanks for your understanding, I’ll try to add notes later in the week, but I wanted these rankings out before Thursday Night Football.
While I was away, Derrick Henry went nuclear, scoring nearly 48 PPR points while putting the Titans on his back for a much-needed victory. We know Henry will have his down weeks occasionally due to his lack of pass-catching (although he did have 6 receptions in Week 2), but how many players have 35 carries for 182 yards and three touchdowns in their range of outcomes? Henry remains a locked-in top-five running back, and his managers breathed a sigh of relief after a 10 point Week 1 performance had some on edge about this Titans offense.
