If you haven’t already, leave your projection for Marcus Mariota’s 2019 stats here. Today we move on to projecting Derrick Henry’s 2019 numbers. While he isn’t quite as tough to predict as Mariota, he is still tough because we don’t have a huge sample size of him being productive. He looked to figure it out at the end of the 2018 season. Will that carryover into 2019? I think so, but I wouldn’t bet a ton of money on it.
The one big advantage that Henry has is that the offense is going to be built around him. If he doesn’t succeed it won’t be for the lack of opportunity.
We will just do rushing attempts, rushing yards and touchdowns for Henry. He will probably be more involved in the passing game than years past, but that is never going to be the bread and butter of his game.
At the end of this series I will compile the averages. We will re-visit our numbers at the end of the year to see how close we were to the actual numbers.
