Instant Fantasy Analysis - RB Darrell Henderson, Rams

Darrell Henderson Write-Up

Don't be fooled by his 5-8, 208-pound frame, Henderson can take a pounding and can run with some force. However, what he does well is hit the big play more often than any running back in this draft. (He had 27 of at least 20 yards last season, 10 more than anyone other running back), And that is exactly what I think the Rams are thinking here: one of their offseason goals was to take some touches off of Todd Gurley's plate in order to keep him healthy for the long term. Landing a player like Henderson who compares favorably to Tevin Coleman gives them that option and should give them solid return on their investment without needing to give him too many touches. It's too early to tell if Los Angeles will view him as Gurley's direct backup - the Rams seem to like Malcolm Brown in that role - but it seems reasonable to believe he'll earn that title sooner or later. How quickly he gets there will determine whether or not he's worth stashing in redraft leagues, but he is definitely worth landing in rookie drafts - presumably in the second round.
