2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the most over-drafted players in all of fantasy in 2019, Darrell Henderson shot up draft boards throughout last offseason when many believed him to be the Todd Gurley replacement. Reports indicated that Gurley was dealing with a recurring knee injury and that he could be phased out of the offense as early as that season. That appeared to be even more clear when the Rams selected Henderson in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Henderson, however, was fantasy football's biggest busts as he saw just 43 total touches as a rookie while failing to exceed even 150 rushing yards on the entire season as the Rams continued to utilize Gurley as their primary back in practically all situations. There's still belief in some circles that Henderson could be an every-down NFL back, but the Rams obviously don't view him as that as they invested a second round pick this offseason on Cam Akers. A committee backfield seems practically inevitable in Los Angeles and that's just not very exciting given that the Rams offensive line situation is still quite ugly.

Another concern with the Rams backfield is that Henderson and veteran Malcolm Brown weren't even productive in 2019 despite Gurley's workload being significantly reduced in comparison to previous seasons. Henderson finished with 3.8 yards per carry, caught just four passes on the season and didn't flash much in the way of big play upside as a rookie. It was on a small sample size so there's still reason to have hope for the future, but Henderson seems destined to be - at best - the second option in a committee backfield for the Rams this season.

Sean McVay hints at RB by committee approach
"We’ll go with the hot hand or whoever really expresses himself"
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 21, 9:00 am

The Rams are making the transition from having a true workhorse back to likely utilizing more of a committee approach in the backfield this year. “I think it’ll just naturally work itself out. I think if you look at that success San Fran had last year with that running back-by-committee approach,” McVay said on The Helliepod. “What I thought Kyle (Shanahan) and their players did a great job of is, ‘Hey, we’re going to have an open-mind approach, we’re going to be committed to trying to have some balance and then we’ll go with the hot hand or whoever really expresses himself as deserving of the carries.” (Rams Wire)

FFToday's Take: With no pre-season games and a minimal training camp, its going to be difficult for fantasy owners to get a firm handle on the RB to own in this group. Cam Akers is currently the most valued, going as the RB28 in PPR leagues. Darrell Henderson, Malcolm Brown and John Kelly are in also in the mix.
