  Rams | Darrell Henderson leads team in Week 8    Sun Oct 27, 06:09 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson rushed 11 times for a team-high 49 yards in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals in London and he added two grabs for 20 yards on three targets.

Footballguys view: Henderson looked better than he did last week, although Malcolm Brown has the bye week to get healthy and complicate this running back depth chart. Henderson isn't an essential hold through the bye.

  Rams | Darrell Henderson sees 11 rushes    Sun Oct 20, 06:28 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson rushed 11 times for 31 yards in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons while adding an eight-yard catch on his only target.

Footballguys view: Henderson was a big disappointment in a game with extra opportunity against a weak defense in a blowout. He's worth holding in deep leagues to see if he can get a similar script against the Bengals next week.

  Rams | Malcolm Brown expected to receive bulk of carries    Sun Oct 13, 08:23 AM

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown is expected to be the team's featured back in Week 6's game against the San Francisco 49ers, as a result of RB Todd Gurley (quadriceps) being ruled out. RB Darrell Henderson will also likely see an increased number of offensive snaps.

Footballguys view: Brown is facing a very tough run defense and is only a low ceiling flex, better suited for use in nonPPR leagues. Henderson should be added in leagues with large enough benches because he could make enough of an impression to have a larger role going forward.

  Rams | Opportunity for Darrell Henderson?    Fri Oct 11, 10:27 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson said he is going to be prepared for whatever role is asked of him if RB Todd Gurley (quadriceps) is unable to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Gurley (quad) is doubtful for the Rams' Week 6 matchup against the 49ers. That means the Rams could turn to Malcolm Brown and Henderson at the running back position. Brown is the power back and Henderson is a good all-purpose back. Brown is a RB2 with upside while Henderson is a 'what the heck' flex.

  Rams | Darrell Henderson turns in sub-par effort    Sun Aug 25, 02:18 AM

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson ran for 28 yards on 11 carries and added a four-yard reception in the team's third preseason game against the Denver Broncos on Saturday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: Henderson has failed to make a big impact in the preseason. He is competing with John Kelly for touches and might not play a big role to begin the season. Henderson can still establish relevance quickly and is worth a bench spot, but his first few games will be key to see if his offseason ADP was too optimistic.

  Rams | Quiet outing for Darrell Henderson    Sat Aug 10, 11:14 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson rushed six times for 13 yards and lost five yards on his only reception in a 14-3 preseason loss to the Oakland Raiders Saturday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Henderson hasn't popped in camp like Miles Sanders or in the first preseason game like David Montgomery. After being listed 5th on the first depth chart, the air is coming out of his overinflated ADP.

  Rams | Light shed on Darrell Henderson's role?    Mon Jul 29, 03:16 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson is expected to be utilized in the same kind of 'flexible mismatch' role Chris Thompson assumed when head coach Sean McVay was the offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Chris Thompson flirted with RB1 value in PPR leagues in McVay's offense so this isn't bad news for Henderson's stock, although he's being drafted close to his ceiling if Todd Gurley stays healthy all year. This is enough to justify him at ADP when combined with the Gurley injury upside.
