|Pats trade Sony Michel to Rams|
Pats receive 2022 fifth and sixth round picks
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Aug 25, 7:26 am
|The Rams are trading a 2022 fifth and sixth round pick to the Patriots for RB Sony Michel, multiple sources said. Rams get their complementary player to Henderson, who will also alleviate some of the depth/durability concerns at the position. (Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Rams have been hit with injuries at running back this preseason with Cam Akers (Achilles) out for the year, Raymond Calais (foot) out indefinitely and Darrel Henderson (sprained thumb). Michel provides insurance for Henderson who's been a bit injury-prone during his short career. This move caps Henderson's upside who should remain the lead back while J.J. Taylor and Rhamondre Stevenson elevate in New England.

Rams RB could be limited, but not a lot of info on recovery

Rams RB Darrell Henderson injured his thumb during practice. "I'm not sure," Sean McVay said after practice when asked about his status. "He got his thumb. Don't have any updates on that." (Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Thanks for the info, Sean! Coach was probably annoyed because the Rams are basically "all in" on the veteran back, and the RB depth in Los Angeles is pretty thin because of the devastating Cam Akers injury in the offseason. So if Henderson misses time we'll see a lot of UDFA Xavier Jones, who was signed in 2020. Other than that it's just seventh-round selection Jake Funk, who could carve out a role eventually.

Suffered injury while training

|#Rams RB Cam Akers suffered a torn Achilles while training, per source.
Brutal blow for L.A., which loses its leading rusher from last season a week before camp begins. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Brutal. Akers was inline to be a workhorse back and was highly sought after by the fantasy community checking in with a 2nd round ADP. Darrell Henderson, Xavier Jones, Raymond Calais and Jake Funk are next up on the depth chart but don't be surprised if the Rams make a play for a free agent running back. Le'Veon Bell, Duke Johnson and Adrian Peterson are still free agents. Henderson's value should be on the rise with this news.
