NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that the Los Angeles Rams will move towards more of a running back committee approach in Week 2 against the Eagles, with Darrell Henderson Jr. playing more than he did in Week 1. Garafolo expects the team to use Henderson, Cam Akers, and Malcolm Brown "roughly equally" in this week's game and moving forward. We'll see if that's how it plays out, but if Garafolo is right, this backfield gets a lot harder to predict for fantasy and both Brown and Akers take a hit in season-long value.
Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell HendersonJr. (hamstring) had been dealing with a soft-tissue injury for the last couple of weeks, and his status for Week 1 was in question. On Friday, he completed his third consecutive day of full practice, and head coach Sean McVay stated that all of his players would be available to face the Cowboys on Sunday night. Henderson will likely be splitting touches heavily with fellow running backs Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown. Until we know more about the touch distribution in this committee backfield, Henderson will probably have more value in real life than in fantasy football.
Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (hamstring) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Henderson had been heading in a positive direction prior to Wednesday, and his full participation puts him on track to be active for the Week 1 matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday night. Rookie Cam Akers is still the favorite to lead this backfield in touches, at least to begin the season, but Henderson could split carries with Akers and Malcolm Brown in the season opener. Of the three backs, Henderson is the least attractive from a fantasy standpoint, and he's a poor DFS and flex pick until we get a better idea of what his exact role will be.
Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (hamstring) suffered a hamstring strain in the team's first scrimmage about two weeks ago and is still recovering. However, head coach Sean McVay recently stated that he was optimistic Henderson would be able to play in the team's Week 1 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Henderson is expected to split carries with rookie Cam Akers and veteran Malcolm Brown to start the year. Last year, Henderson played second fiddle to Todd Gurley and rushed the ball 39times for 147 yards, good for 3.8 yards per carry. He's a decent late-round flyer in deep leagues given the fact that he figures to get steady touches in a potent offense, but if Akers comes out of the gate strong, Henderson, might be relegated to No. 2 status yet again this year.
Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (hamstring) suffered a mild hamstring injury in Saturday's practice. The injury was reported the following day and head coach Sean McVay said he was "hopeful" that Henderson would be fine for Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys. While it certainly doesn't sound like anything major for Henderson, it could be enough to lead to a heavier workload to start the season for veteran Malcolm Brown and rookie Cam Akers. If Henderson remains sidelined through training camp, Brown and Akers will get more of an opportunity to establish themselves. Make sure to keep an eye on the situation going forward.
Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (ankle) said on Wednesday that he has recovered from surgery to fix a high ankle sprain suffered last December. Yeah. Im good to go now. I feel like if we were able to practice today Id be out there with no limits, Henderson said. He'll be in the mix to help replace Todd Gurley II this year, along with rookie Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown. It's good news that Henderson will be full-go for training camp next month, but it's worrisome for his fantasy upside that the team took Akers with their first pick in the second round in April. The Rams backfield figures to be a timeshare and Akers appears to be a more complete back, which makes Henderson more of an RB3/flex, at best.
