ESPN's Lindsey Thiry calls it "a toss-up" whether Darrell Henderson or Cam Akers will lead the Rams backfield in touches this season. "Expect Henderson to earn more touches early in the season, given Akers could take extra time to acclimate because of the virtual offseason program," Thiry adds. That scenario certainly seems possible, but it's also just a guess at this point. The Rams' heavy draft investment in Akers this spring just a year after they selected Henderson (a round later) leaves us expecting Akers to lead the backfield. The uncertainty of the situation is worth keeping in mind as you consider both players in best-ball drafts this summer.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson told reporters on Wednesday that he had surgery on the ankle injury that sidelined him for last year's finale. We don't have any other details on the injury or procedure -- but Henderson said he's fully recovered and will be ready for the start of camp. He'll be battling rookie Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown for snaps in the Rams' Todd Gurley-less backfield.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) is out for Sunday’s finale against the Cardinals. That’ll only matter if L.A. decides to rest RB Todd Gurley. In that case, Malcolm Brown would be left as the feature back.

The Rams' plan this season is for RB Darrell Henderson to be a "Chris Thompson type," according to Yahoo's Charles Robinson. Across HC Sean McVay's final 2 years as Redskins OC, Thompson carried 103 times and caught 84 of 110 targets. He finished 55th and then 28th among RBs in PPR points. Fantasy owners drafting Henderson at his early-7th-round ADP have to be hoping for at least a bit more work for the rookie this season. We currently project Henderson for 96 carries and 24 catches.

The Rams selected Memphis RB Darrell Henderson in the 3rd round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Henderson posted eye-popping numbers for the Tigers. He took 130 carries for 1,154 yards (8.9 YPC) and 9 TDs as a sophomore in 2017. Then he posted a matching 8.9 yards per carry last year, this time racking up 1,909 yards and 22 scores on 214 totes. The big-play machine busted off 27 runs of 20+ yards and 12 of 40+ in 2018 alone. He ranked 2nd in this RB class in Pro Football Focus’ Elusive Rating. Henderson also proved capable in the passing game, totaling 63 catches for 758 yards (12.0 YPC) and 8 TDs across 3 college seasons. He disappointed with a 4.53-second 40 time at the Combine (he plays much faster) but still came away with a 67th percentile SPARQ score. This is obviously a rough landing spot for Henderson — at least in the short term. But the pick might hint at some real concern about Todd Gurley’s knee.
