Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Henderson opened last season as the Rams’ #3 RB behind Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown, playing just 5 snaps in Week 1.
  • Akers suffered a rib injury in Week 2, and Henderson took over as lead back. From Week 2 to 7, he averaged 14 carries and 2.2 targets per game.
    • He averaged 4.8 yards per carry during that stretch, scored 4 times and ranked as a top 15 RB across fantasy scoring formats.
  • From Week 8 to 15, though, Henderson averaged just 5.6 carries and 1.6 targets per game to Akers’ 14 carries and 1.3 targets. Akers out-carried Henderson in 5 of those 7 games, including in each of the final 3 by a total margin of 65 to 6.
  • In his last 3 games alongside Akers, Henderson registered snap rates of 21%, 11% and 12%.
  • Henderson missed the regular-season finale and both playoff games with a high-ankle sprain. In those games, Akers carried 21, 28 and 18 times.
  • Henderson beat Akers in yards per carry, Elusive Rating, Pro Football Focus rushing grade and Football Outsiders DVOA last year.
  • All indications from the Rams coaching staff and beat writers suggest Akers will enter the 2021 campaign as the clear lead back.
  • Brown is gone, leaving behind 101 carries and a RB-high 33 targets from a year ago.
  • The Rams have finished top 10 in rushing TDs in all 4 seasons under HC Sean McVay, who returns for 2021. They’ve also ranked top 10 in rushing attempts and yards in 3 of those 4 seasons.
  • Henderson was the 70th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft; Akers the 52nd overall pick of the 2020 draft.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Henderson finished last season on the sidelines with an ankle injury, while Cam Akers played a workhorse role. Akers looks like the favorite to lead the backfield in 2021 -- but don’t consider him locked into that job. He saw extensive work in only 6 games as a rookie last year and actually got beat by Henderson in most advanced rushing metrics.

Henderson has a chance at seeing enough work to be a fringe fantasy play this season. And, at worst, he’s a high-end handcuff.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (knee) has been designated to return from IR. He won't play vs. the Bucs on Sunday but has a chance to suit up if Los Angeles advances to the NFC Championship. Henderson would likely return as the Rams' #3 RB behind Cam Akers and Sony Michel.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson will be placed on IR with an MCL sprain suffered in Sunday's win over the Vikings, HC Sean McVay said. Henderson is expected to miss 3-5 weeks, which means he could be out unless the Rams reach the Super Bowl. We'll keep tabs on his recovery.

The Rams believe RB Darrell Henderson suffered a knee sprain in today's win over the Vikings, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The hope is it’s minor, but he’ll have an MRI on Monday that will tell the full story," Rapoport adds. So we should learn more tomorrow. Henderson, though, is off the fantasy radar now that Sony Michel has taken over as the Rams' feature back.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson was knocked out of Sunday's game vs. the Vikings with a knee injury. That happened on his 1st carry of the game in the 4th quarter. We'll look for an update on Henderson's injury, but this is clearly Sony Michel's backfield right now.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson has been activated from the COVID list. Assuming he's over the thigh issue that cost him Week 13, he should play vs. the Seahawks on Tuesday night. It's unclear exactly how touches will be divvied between Henderson and RB Sony Michel. Consider both guys risk/reward fantasy plays against Seattle's 31st-ranked RB defense.
