RB Darrell Henderson - Los Angeles Rams
|5-9, 200||Born: 8-19-1997||College: Memphis||Drafted: Round 3, pick 2019|
2019 Week 1 vs CAR (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Henderson barely played in his NFL debut as he was on the field for only two snaps, including being stuffed on a red zone carry. Henderson is clearly behind Malcolm Brown as the No.2 back and Brown excelled in his first game back from a midseason 2018 injury. Henderson needs at least one of the backs ahead of him out of the way to be a viable projection for weekly usage until further notice.
2019 Week 6 vs SF (6 / 39 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Henderson saw much of his playing time in the second half of the Rams' loss to the 49ers. Malcolm Brown was the starter and the preferred option in the first half. Henderson flashed on three occasions as a runner with a perimeter run, showing burst, for more than 20 yards, a cutback for 10+ yards, and finally a red zone run down to the one-yard-line. Henderson was stuffed on fourth-and-short, however, and lost a fumble among his low moments.
2019 Week 7 vs ATL (11 / 31 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Henderson inherited the secondary role to Todd Gurley against the Falcons with Malcolm Brown inactive. Henderson sparsely played in the first half between seeing more action in the second of the comfortable road win. It was tough sledding for both Gurley and Henderson on the ground with Henderson's most notable runs being a broken tackle on third-and-shot and getting to the edge on another occasion for 10 yards. Henderson saw most of the backfield snaps in the fourth quarter as the Rams milked a big lead.
2019 Week 8 vs CIN (11 / 49 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
Henderson mixed in with Todd Gurley in the first half but saw most of his playing time and touches in the second half of the home win over Cincinnati. Henderson had a nice cut for 15 yards on his biggest gain and broke a tackle on another occasion for additional yardage. Henderson notably had a third-down drop as a receiver.
2019 Week 10 vs PIT (4 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Henderson started the game against the Steelers as the primary backup to Todd Gurley, only to cede time to a now-healthy Malcolm Brown as the game progressed. Henderson rarely saw the field in the second half and did not log any impact with his four touches. Without a Todd Gurley injury and the Rams offense struggling, Henderson is a long-shot to provide impact considering the rotational blend of Henderson and Brown as backup options.
