In 2019, it felt like Derrick Henry won the Rushing Title out of nowhere, as he was in his fourth year, and it he only had 1,059 Yards the year before. In 2020, Henry won his second Rushing Title, shattering his previous mark, and joined the 2,000 Yard Rushing club and winning the Offensive Player of the Year. Had he not gotten injured during the 2021 season, Henry was on his way to his second straight OPOY. After a bounce back 2022 that saw him net his third 1,500 Yard campaign, Henry has 10,000 Yards in his sights, but we have seen the diminished role of the RB in recent years. It will get harder and harder for players like Henry to enter Canton, but he has the skills to get it done.
