Home » NFL Rushing Yards Leaders Week 10 – Henry favored

At the time of writing, the Baltimore Ravens and the New Orleans Saints still had to play their Monday night game. However, neither of those teams features a player that is expected to lead the NFL in rushing. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore’s rushing quarterback, is out at 50 to 1 for the title now. Accordingly, we can look at the Week 10 NFL rushing yards leaders ahead of the Monday night game. There is a new betting favorite in this market with bet365.

Derrick Henry emerges as the betting favorite

Justin Fields was the Week 10 leader for rushing yards. The quarterback had 178 yards on the ground, which included a 61-yard touchdown run. The top-five rushing leaders on the entire season are below with their rushing yards total and the number of games remaining in their respective team’s schedules.

  1. Derrick Henry: 870 yards (9 games remaining)
  2. Nick Chubb: 841 yards (9 games remaining)
  3. Saquon Barkley: 779 yards (9 games remaining)
  4. Josh Jacobs: 743 yards (9 games remaining)

  1. Derrick Henry: 9/4 (+225)
  2. Nick Chubb: 5/2 (+250)
  3. Saquon Barkley: 9/2 (+450)
  4. Josh Jacobs: 9/1 (+900)

Bettors beware: Derrick Henry

Derrick Henry has come on strong in this market following the injury to Ryan Tannehill. Their QB2, Malik Willis, has absolutely awful passing statistics. Henry has run for 334 yards in the team’s last two games.

When Tannehill returns, there is a question as to whether Henry will continue to receive so many attempts. Also, it was about this time last year when Henry suffered an injury that limited his late-season participation severely. He is a player that bettors will want to avoid in this market. At present, there’s no one to get too excited about in this market.
