  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Out-touches Akers 10-8 on MNF

    Henderson rushed seven times for 27 yards and caught three of four targets for 12 yards in Monday's 24-9 loss to San Francisco. Cam Akers got the start but mustered just 13 scrimmage yards on eight carries and one target. Henderson appears to be the team's running back of choice when negative game scripts lead to more passing situations, and that could be the case in Week 5 against a Cowboys team that's riding a three-game winning streak.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Only four touches

    Henderson rushed four times for 17 yards and failed to bring in his only target during Sunday's 20-12 victory against the Cardinals. Henderson's role in what looked to be a timeshare with Cam Akers diminished even further against Arizona, as while both players were on the field for 24 of the Rams' 48 offensive snaps, Akers received triple the amount of rushing touches and turned them into 61 yards and a touchdown. The lack of receptions from Henderson in the past two weeks is a troubling trend, as after a five-catch game in Week 1, he hasn't hauled in a pass since. Akers did cough up the ball in a key spot in the fourth quarter, however, so Henderson may be in line for more opportunities as the Rams head to San Francisco for Week 4.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson Jr.: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    I'm going to stick with Henderson as a No. 2 running back in all leagues this week even after Cam Akers got more playing time in Week 2 against the Falcons compared to the split in Week 1 against Buffalo. In Week 1, Henderson played 82 percent of the snaps compared to 18 percent for Akers. In Week 2, it was 56 percent for Henderson and 44 percent for Akers, and Akers had more touches (15 carries and two catches) than Henderson (10 carries and no catches). Still, it was Henderson who had the better Fantasy day with 47 rushing yards and a touchdown compared to Akers, who had 62 total yards. Henderson has the better chance to score, and he should be able to find the end zone against the Cardinals.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson Jr.: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Henderson remains the Rams' top running back for however long he plays effectively. The matchup is a good one for him, so I'd start him over Jeff Wilson, Travis Etienne and Chase Edmonds.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Enters into timeshare

    Henderson carried the ball 10 times for 47 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-27 win over the Falcons. Henderson got the first carry of the game, but Cam Akers entered and split work fairly evenly on the opening drive. The touch total for the game surprisingly ended in Akers' favor, though Henderson was far more efficient and also appeared to be favored near the goal line. As a result, he was able to salvage his day with an eight-yard touchdown plunge. Henderson is likely to maintain a significant role in the offense moving forward, though Akers appears equally likely to cut into Henderson's work.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson Jr.: RBs to Start

    We'll see if Darrell Henderson continues to dominate playing time over Cam Akers, but the Rams definitely favored Henderson in Week 1 against Buffalo. He had 13 carries for 47 yards, along with five catches for 26 yards on five targets. Akers, meanwhile, had three carries for no yards and wasn't involved in the passing game. The Rams are heavy favorites at home (-10.5) against the Falcons, and Henderson should have the opportunity for several scoring chances as the lead running back in Los Angeles.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson Jr.: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    The matchup and potential game script favors Henderson quite a bit, so I'm expecting one of his better games in a matchup that's more favorable than what the basic stats say. Henderson is a must-start ahead of Cordarrelle Patterson and Clyde Edwards-Helaire. I'd even start him ahead of Alvin Kamara and his tough matchup against the Buccaneers.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson Jr.: Contrarian DFS Play

    Henderson was the surprise starter against the Bills in Week 1 and I expect he'll find a much easier task in Week 2 against the Falcons. To be fair to the Falcons, they were very good against Alvin Kamara, but I don't believe that was representative of what they'll be all year. This is actually my top projected value on the slate at FanDuel, so it's possible he won't be contrarian, but I don't get the feeling anyone actually believes in Henderson.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Clear lead back in Week 1 loss

    Henderson rushed 13 times for 47 yards and secured all five targets for 26 yards in the Rams' 31-10 loss to the Bills on Thursday night. Henderson out-touched backfield Cam Akers by an 18-3 margin, and he managed to cobble together a serviceable fantasy effort overall despite not finding the end zone. Henderson's night on the ground was even tougher than his 3.6 yards per carry implies, as he gained 18 of his yards on one rush attempt. However, he also tied for second on the team in receptions to round out his production, and although he and Akers are likely to share the workload much more equitably in coming games, Henderson at least heads into a Week 2 home matchup against the Falcons a week from Sunday as the presumptive primary option in the ground attack.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Practices fully Monday

    Henderson (undisclosed) practiced fully Monday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. As did Cam Akers (undisclosed), which puts the Rams' top two backs in line to be a go for the team's Week 1 game against the Bills. Once the season gets going, look for Akers to profile as Los Angeles' lead back, while Henderson sees his share of complementary/change-of-pace touches. Behind that duo, Kyren Williams and Jake Funk figure to vye for reserve slotting.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Fits in workout Saturday

    Coach Sean McVay said Henderson (undisclosed) put in a full-speed workout Saturday, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. Meanwhile, McVay added fellow running back Cam Akers (undisclosed) "wasn't able to do that quite yet." The Rams capped their exhibition slate Saturday in Cincinnati, so it appears Henderson's activity occurred during pregame warmups. Henderson's next step will be getting back on the practice field as he attempts to put a soft-tissue injury in the rearview mirror.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Return to practice TBD

    Coach Sean McVay acknowledged Monday that he doesn't have a timeline for when Henderson (soft-tissue injury) can return to practice, noting "it could be anywhere between two days, one day, a week," Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. The same applies to fellow RB Cam Akers, but given McVay's initial estimate, it sounds like neither player's issue is viewed as a long term one, with the Rams simply preferring to play it safe at this stage of the preseason. As long as Akers and/or Henderson are sidelined, added practice reps will be available for Kyren Williams and Jake Funk.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Still getting work with starters

    Henderson and Cam Akers have been rotating through the first-team offense, ESPN.com's Sarah Barshop reports. Akers, a 2020 second-round pick, is expected to take back the lead role after a strong finish to his rookie season was followed by an Achilles tear last summer. However, he struggled when he returned for the playoffs, which could leave an opening for Henderson if Akers still hasn't regained his explosiveness. If nothing else, Henderson seems to be secure in the No. 2 role given that the depth chart behind him holds only late-round picks and undrafted young players. Rookie fifth-rounder Kyren Williams is most promising of the bunch, but he's on the PUP list due to a broken foot suffered at OTAs, with no assurance he'll be ready by Week 1.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Impact as receiver in SB LVI win

    Henderson rushed four times for seven yards and brought in three of five targets for 43 yards during the Rams' 23-20 win over the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday. Activated from injured reserve on Friday after last having played in Week 16, Henderson was still the clear complementary option to lead back Cam Akers in terms of rushing volume. However, the third-year back made an appreciable impact as a receiver, particularly on his catches of 25 and 15 yards in the second and third quarters, respectively. Henderson's knee should be back to full strength early in the offseason if it isn't already, and he and Akers could have quite the competition for the No. 1 running back job in training camp this coming summer.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Removed from IR

    The Rams activated Henderson (knee) from injured reserve Friday. Coach Sean McVay hinted Monday that Henderson would be ready, with the running back coming up on seven weeks removed from suffering an MCL sprain Week 16 against Minnesota (Dec. 26). His standing in the backfield has changed quite a bit since earlier this season, but the Rams could nonetheless try to find him some touches in the Super Bowl, given that both Cam Akers and Sony Michel have struggled to find running room so far this postseason, producing 2.8 YPC and 3.3 YPC, respectively. Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports that McVay talked earlier this week of a potential three-man rotation at running back.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Should return for Super Bowl

    Coach Sean McVay said Monday that Henderson (knee) has a "good chance" to return for the Super Bowl against Cincinnati on Sunday, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports. Henderson last played Week 16, when he suffered an MCL sprain in a win over the Vikings. The Rams got a late-season burst from backup RB Sony Michel and now have Cam Akers back in the lineup as well, but it's possible Henderson gets some touches this Sunday if his knee checks out in practice.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Still on injured reserve

    The Rams didn't activate Henderson (knee) from injured reserve in advance of Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers. Designated to return from IR on Jan. 21, Henderson has had two chances to return to the active roster -- also, the Rams' divisional-round win at Tampa Bay -- but he's not yet past the MCL sprain in his right knee that he suffered Week 16 at Minnesota. L.A. will continue to lean on Cam Akers and Sony Michel out of the backfield with a Super Bowl berth on the line.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Won't play this week

    Henderson (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve Friday but won't be available for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official website report. The move suggests Henderson has a shot to return if the Rams advance, though he might only be the No. 3 back behind Cam Akers and Sony Michel. It'll be those two leading the way Sunday against Tampa Bay.

  • Rams' Darrell Henderson: Settles on injured reserve

    Henderson (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Henderson sustained an MCL sprain in his right knee this past Sunday in Minnesota that will now require him to sit out three games before he can return to the active roster. His next potential appearances depends on the Rams' eventual seed, but in the meantime Sony Michel is expected to be the team's lead running back. Michel may welcome back Cam Akers to the lineup as soon as Sunday in Baltimore, as the latter is completing a much quicker than anticipated recovery from a torn Achilles suffered in July. Aside from Michel and Akers, Jake Funk and Buddy Howell are the other healthy running backs on L.A.'s active roster.
