  • Best big-name player: Derrick Henry is unstoppable this time of year, and the Jacksonville Jaguars already showed once in the last month they can’t slow Henry down.
  • Best mid-priced player: Any one of the Jaguars receivers could have a huge game against the Tennessee Titans defense, but Zay Jones has the highest odds relative to his price.

Ahead of Saturday night's bout between the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars, here are three players at different salary ranges who I believe will perform well in the DraftKings Showdown.


Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans ($11,800)

Henry ran the ball 17 times for 121 yards and a touchdown less than a month ago in the Titans' last matchup against the Jaguars.

  • He’s gained at least 100 rushing yards and a touchdown in his last three games.
  • Henry has already set career highs in targets (38), receptions (32) and receiving yards (379). He’s caught at least two passes in each of his last seven games.
  • He didn’t play last week as a precaution due to a hip injury but was a full participant in practice to start Week 18.
  • The Jaguars have allowed over 100 yards and a touchdown to halfbacks in three of their last five games. The two exceptions were against teams without their top halfback.
  • The Titans are underdogs in this game, but they still run the ball 40% of the time when playing from behind, the fifth-highest rate in the league.
  • He is only slightly more expensive than Travis Etienne, who was held to 32 yards on 17 carries in these two teams' last matchup.
  • The only running back to gain over 70 rushing yards against the Titans has been Saquon Barkley in Week 1.
  • This makes Henry the better play of the two backs despite Etienne’s talent and the expected game script.
