Basic StatsDarrell Henderson's Preseason Player Analysis

View RB Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Henderson missed 5 regular-season games and 3 more in the playoffs last year with rib, thigh and knee injuries.
  • He missed 1 game as a rookie in 2019 with a high-ankle sprain and suffered another high-ankle sprain in 2020 that cost him the regular-season finale and 2 playoff games.
  • After mustering just 3.8 yards per carry in his rookie season, Henderson has averaged 4.6 over the last 2 years.
  • He ranked 15th among 47 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus’ 2020 rushing grades and 16th among 50 last year.
  • Henderson’s efficiency has waned when he’s taken on bigger workloads, though. In 8 career games with 15+ carries, he’s averaged just 4.0 yards per carry. By comparison, he’s averaged 4.7 yards per carry in 13 games with 8 to 14 carries.
  • Henderson set career highs last year with 40 targets, 29 catches, 176 receiving yards and 3 receiving scores.
    • But, among 49 RBs with 30+ targets last season, Henderson ranked 46th in PFF receiving grade and 47th in yards per route run.
  • Henderson finished 21st among RBs in PPR points per game and 22nd in non-PPR points per game last season. He was PPR RB47 and non-PRR RB40 in 2020.
  • The Rams did not re-sign Sony Michel, who led the team last year with 208 carries. They return RB Cam Akers and spent a 5th-round pick on Notre Dame RB Kyren Williams.
  • Akers missed the first 16 games of last season after tearing his Achilles in July.
  • In their 1 game together last year – the Super Bowl – Akers out-snapped Henderson 57% to 32% and out-carried him 13 to 4. Henderson saw 5 targets to Akers’ 4.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Henderson is coming off the most productive season of his career, finishing as a top 24 RB across fantasy scoring formats.

But he’s struggled staying healthy through 3 NFL seasons and generally been more effective on smaller workloads. We’re expecting him to open the 2022 campaign as the Rams’ #2 RB behind Cam Akers.

Akers remains a question mark coming off the Achilles tear, though, so Henderson has plenty of handcuff appeal.

Cam Akers, RB LAR

10:40pm EDT 9/26/22

Akers leads Week 3 backfield

Rams RB Cam Akers pulled nearly even with RB Darrell Henderson in playing time for Sunday's win over the Cardinals. He trailed Henderson by just 2 snaps while easily beating Henderson in carries, 12-4. Akers turned those into 61 yards, including a nice 14-yard TD run. Henderson collected a mere 17 yards on his 4 rushes, adding just 1 catch-less target despite running 10 more routes than Akers. After 2 straight games of Akers taking the carry and touch lead, it's time to play him 1st in this backfield.

Rams RB Cam Akers re-emerged as a backfield contributor in Sunday's win over the Falcons. Darrell Henderson still beat him in playing time, 35 snaps to 27. But that marked a big change from the 55-12 split of Week 1. Akers carried 15 times to Henderson's 10 and drew the only targets between them. It was still Henderson leading in routes, though: 19-8, according to Pro Football Focus. Akers wasn't especially efficient, averaging 2.9 yards on the ground. He did catch 2 of 3 targets for 18 yards, though. Henderson posted a 10-47-1 rushing line (4.7 per rush). We'd bet on the split looking more like Week 2 than Week 1 going forward but will continue to watch it develop.

Rams HC Sean McVay talked about RB Cam Akers on Friday, a day after Akers carried just 3 times in the opener. "There were some instances where there were some positive things and some things that he can do better, but we want to see just an increased level of urgency and accountability snap in and snap out from him," McVay said. “I know what Cam is capable of. We've all seen how talented and what a special player this guy's capable of being. And I want to see him reach his highest potential." It sure sounds like Akers has just been beaten out by RB Darrell Henderson for the starting job. That's probably not set in stone for the entire season, but Akers obviously belongs on fantasy benches for the time being.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson got the start and operated as the clear lead back in Thursday night's opener vs. the Bills. He ended up out-snapping RB Cam Akers 55 to 12. It didn't result in big fantasy production (13 carries for 47 yards, 5 catches for 26 yards). But if this level of usage continues for Henderson, he'll be at least a RB2 in fantasy lineups. Akers finished the game with 3 carries for 0 yards and was not targeted. At this point, he looks like just a handcuff to Henderson.

Rams RBs Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson are "good to go," HC Sean McVay said Friday. Both backs missed time in August with soft-tissue injuries but got back on the practice field earlier this week. They're both on track to play in Thursday night's season opener vs. the Bills. Then we'll start to get an idea of what the backfield split will look like.

Dynasty Write-up
Henderson operated as a feature back with Cam Akers out in 2021, before getting hurt himself. But Sean McVay immediately returned the backfield to Akers upon his quick return from an Achilles' tear. Henderson heads into the final year of his rookie deal as a handcuff type with little reason for us to be excited about what lies beyond that.
