Face/off: Tevin Coleman, Derrick Henry or Joe Mixon

smitty fantasy football advice

Hey, all. I plan to make this a regular series here on SleeperU.com, so get ready for more of these fac/eoff articles. With today’s write-up, I would like to face/off three different upside running backs that many of you might be unsure of in both redraft and dynasty. Just to be up front, I too feel uncertain about the players mentioned, but I will try to come to the most sensible conclusions possible in terms of breaking down both their ‘now’ and ‘future’ values. Enjoy.

Who has more upside for the now and future, Tevin Coleman, Derrick Henry or Joe Mixon?

1. Joe Mixon | CIN RB
2. Tevin Coleman | ATL RB
3. Derrick Henry | TEN RB

      I would bump Henry to #2. Drop Coleman to #3.

      Redraft I would keep Coleman 1 and go with Henry over Mixon. Why? two reasons. He is getting drafted too high, have other needs. Currently he is 3rd on the depth in terms of touches.

        Henry won’t be close to Coleman’s value. Coleman has already proved his worth and will only get better.

          You never know. But, you could be right. I think Coleman is better flex like out of the gate, sure. If Murray got hurt, I think Henry would be near top 5-10 per start. I do not think he can be a starting running back for 5 years, though. Honestly, I love Freeman/Coleman and Murray/Henry this year, you just need the duos to sleep well at night, you know what I mean?
