Broncos rookie RB De'Angelo Henderson worked in some 1st-team reps in Saturday night's 2nd preseason game and flashed his upside. Henderson rushed 6 times for 30 yards and caught 2 passes for 20 more. He also had a TD catch-and-run negated by a holding penalty. Afterward, HC Vance Joseph had high praise. “He’s a special runner," Joseph said, per 9News. "He made guys miss on spring and obviously in training camp he made guys miss, but to watch him in open space, it’s fun to see, because he’s going to make the first guy miss most of the time. And his long speed is really good for a little guy. So, once he pops he can, I mean he’s a home run hitter." Give Henderson a look late in your fantasy football drafts

The Broncos have cut RB De'Angelo Henderson. The former 6th-round pick looked intriguing off a workhorse college career but never made much impact in Denver. He's fine to drop in dynasty leagues. We'll see if he catches on anywhere else. Henderson's release only makes it clearer that rookie Phillip Lindsay will make the roster and potentially see some work.

The Broncos nabbed Coastal Carolina RB De'Angelo Henderson in the 6th round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Built like a fire-hydrant at 5'7 and 208 pounds, Henderson runs with a low center of gravity, strong leg drive and good burst. He clocked a 4.48-second 40 time at the Combine, although he finished with a 26th percentile SPARQ score. Henderson was a stat-piling machine at Coastal Carolina, totaling 4,635 yards and 58 scores on 721 carries (6.4 YPC) over the last 4 years. He also caught 97 balls and averaged 9.5 yards per catch. Henderson is making a huge jump up in competition and is a long shot for 2017 fantasy value. But neither C.J. Anderson nor Devontae Booker has locked up the long-term starting job in Denver.
