    yea they hit the 2k mark, but the others often got close more than once
    and TD is not small like CJ and Barry

    Davis sat 8 quarters in blowouts the season he hit 2K, Earl Campbell had 1969 yards in a season he played 15 games. Bigger backs can handle the higher carries needed easier. If Henry averages what he did in 12 games with Tannehill including playoff games he’d have 2093 yards in 16 games.

    I think Sanders got close a couple times as well. (Edit: 1883 in 94’, 1115 in 11 games in 93’)
    TD was bigger than sanders and CJ, but well smaller than Henry, Lewis, and Peterson.

    I agree with what your saying as far as being a bigger back sets you up as generally more durable and likely to get more carries, but I disagree that they are really any more likely to reach 2K.
    Every 2K season had to have multiple things go right regardless of the RB. Clearly it’s not just carries alone (note EG who I’d also consider “bigger”) but also opponents for that given year. The exact same can be said for the RB that reached 18/1900 and NOT breaking 2K.

    We just disagree on the idea that Henry is any more likely than another RB based on size alone. He is in a good system to have a real shot, but so many things have to go the right way.

    We're likely not going to see a crazy strand of massive games like he did last year.

    I'd say 1300 is probably about peak.
