Henry will be in the RB2 mix in what should be a low-scoring affair.

DeMarco Murray has been the Titans’ lead back so far this season, but a hamstring injury allowed Derrick Henry a big second half against Jacksonville on Sunday. Henry now has 117 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries through two games. He’s averaging 5.9 yards per carry, a league-high 2.3 of which has come after initial contact. Henry’s strong play may earn him a larger role, but Murray still played more snaps on Sunday and figures to remain in that role against Seattle this week, assuming he’s healthy. If Murray misses time, Henry will be in the RB2 mix in what should be a low-scoring affair.

Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona Cardinals: Many fantasy players figured Fitzgerald would play a huge part for the Cardinals in the wake of David Johnson’s injury, evidenced by his 91.7 percent start rate in ESPN leagues, he managed just 5.1 PPR fantasy points (and 2.1 in non-PPR). In 204 career NFL games, only 19 times did he have a lower score.

Mike Wallace, WR, Baltimore Ravens: For only the third time in his career, Wallace was held to one catch or fewer in consecutive games — note that he had a five-game streak during 2015 Weeks 8-12 — as he followed up his-1.8 point PPR effort of Week 1 with a mere 1.7 PPR fantasy points on Sunday. While Wallace — and for the most part the Ravens’ passing game — hasn’t needed to do much while leading for a large portion of each of their games, it’s a troubling development nevertheless considering Jeremy Maclin has scored touchdowns in back-to-back games to begin his Ravens career while earning nine targets to Wallace’s four in those contests.
