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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Cooper Kupp out for Week 17
COVID-19 list
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 30, 11:40 am

#Rams WR Cooper Kupp was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list because of a positive test and he’s out for Sunday, source said. So, no Jared Goff and no Cooper Kupp vs. the #AZCardinals. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Rams still need a win to clinch a playoff birth but will now be down Jared Goff, Darrell Henderson and Cooper Kupp. John Wolford will be starting at QB and will have Robert Woods and Josh Reynolds as his main weapons outside. Malcolm Brown should see the bulk of the work at running back unless Cam Akers is able to make a return from his sprained ankle.


Injury High ankle sprain for Darrell Henderson
Likely out for Week 17
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 28, 11:47 am

#Rams RB Darrell Henderson is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in yesterday’s loss, making it unlikely he plays Sunday, source said. He’s having tests today to determine the severity. But LAR will be short-handed heading into a huge game vs. the #AZCardinals. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is back to back weeks with Rams' running backs suffering high ankle sprains. With Cam Akers and now Henderson out, we could see a whole lot of Malcolm Brown in Week 16 against the Cardinals.


Injury Cam Akers likely done for rest of regular season
High-ankle sprain
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 21, 11:55 pm

Rams RB Cam Akers has a high ankle sprain, Sean McVay says, which will cause him to miss this next game (Week 16), at least. (ESPN - Lindsey Thiry)

FFToday's Take: The injury happened in the first half of Week 15, which helps to explain why he saw so little time in the second half. It also helps to explain why he was mostly ineffective versus the Jets. Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown figure to return to their unpredictable committee in his absence next week against the Seahawks. Much as was the case before Akers' emergence, both backs will be high-upside RB3s with low floors.


Cam Akers closing in on Darrell Henderson?
RB coach hints at young RBs splitting carries
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 19, 10:00 pm

With Cam Akers now healthy and catching up on reps during the week, it’s likely we’ll see more of him during the latter stretch of the season, and it would not be surprising to see his carries start to draw closer to those of Darrell Henderson. (The Athletic - Jourdan Rodrigue)

FFToday's Take: Many fantasy owners lost patience with Akers shortly after he missed two games with a rib injury, but he wasn't even close to being ready for at least another two weeks after that. Now that he's had a few weeks of full practice reps, he is apparently ready to fulfill the promise the Rams had for him when they drafted him in the second round. The lead runner in this backfield will have low-end RB1 potential most weeks, but there may be no rhyme or reason to figuring out which back it will be. For that reason, Anderson, Akers and Malcolm Brown should be considered high-end flex plays most weeks.
