Rams RB Darrell Henderson (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to play in Sunday night's opener against the Cowboys -- and makes RB Cam Akers a shakier fantasy bet. Try to avoid the situation if possible, although Akers is still our top-ranked Rams RB.
The Jaguars announced Friday that they have waived RB Darrell Henderson. He didn't play a snap after being claimed off waivers from the Rams on Nov. 23. We'd guess the 25-year-old will land somewhere. New Orleans seems like a strong candidate -- and upside landing spot -- after losing RB Mark Ingram on Monday night for what's likely to be the rest of the season. Jacksonville retains Snoop Conner and JaMycal Hasty behind Travis Etienne, with Mekhi Sargent on the practice squad.
Jaguars HC Doug Pederson said Friday that RB Darrell Henderson won't be ready to play this weekend vs. the Ravens. Henderson was just claimed by Jacksonville on Wednesday. He could eventually win the #2 RB job, but it'll be JaMycal Hasty in that spot behind Travis Etienne for at least 1 more game.
The Jaguars claimed former Rams RB Darrell Henderson off waivers. Henderson shouldn't impact RB Travis Etienne's volume much, if at all. But he is worth rostering in fantasy football as the Etienne handcuff.
The Rams waived RB Darrell Henderson. You could have gotten big odds a month ago on Henderson getting cut from this roster before RB Cam Akers. Henderson played just 4 snaps last week. HC Sean McVay said Monday that the limited playing time was due to a knee issue, but there must be more to this story. We'll see where Henderson lands, but he's unlikely to be a fantasy factor the rest of this season. His release leaves Los Angeles' moribund backfield to Akers and Kyren Williams. RBs Malcolm Brown and Ronnie Rivers are on the practice squad.
Rams HC Sean McVay said that RB Darrell Henderson's snaps were limited by a knee issue in Sunday's loss to the Saints. Henderson ended up playing just 4 snaps and carrying twice. Kyren Williams actually led the backfield with 35 snaps (55%), finishing with 7 carries and 2 targets. Cam Akers played 25 snaps (39%) and carried 14 times. We'll track Henderson's status this week, but this remains a backfield to avoid in fantasy lineups.
