Darrell Henderson 2020 Outlook

I still think Henderson will be fine, but given the matchup this week I would say Malcom Brown is the guy you would want if Henderson didn't play. Against Seattle they will be facing a negative gamescript most of the game...no way they trust Akers more to pass block than Brown who is their pass pro/receiving specialist.


I don’t think it’s a forgone conclusion the Rams are playing this game from behind. The Seahawks have had an under the radar soft schedule, because it looked tough before the year started. They barely beat the Cowboys, Vikings, Patriots, and Dolphins. Then beat Atlanta and a decimated 49er team by 2 possessions. Lost to the only good teams they played in the Cardinals and Bills. They have no defense and are one dimensional without Carson.

I'm surprised by how eager many are to sell here. The LA Rams are 2nd in rush attempts in the league. They are neck-and-neck with the Browns with only a 3 carry separation. This is a backfield yo

Because the GM said he wants to use multiple backs? Jesus, you not watch very much ball. About every team but five use multiple RBs. I think it’s smart for real life teams to do if they want to protec

Was anyone watching did he get reinjured or just didn't play the 4th quarter? 


I feel like he was eased back in after his injury, but it could also just be a 3 headed committee. 

I'm a Rams fan, and Hendo has done nothing wrong to lose the starting job (he has probably been our best offensive player on the year) so I'm going to go with the former, but no one really knows at this point.

Same here. 💪🏾 
He’s so explosive with the ball I’m ready to see what kinda numbers he could put up with 20+ touches consistently

I think they know he may get injured with a full-time role. However, Henderson is a nice hold in fantasy and rock solid flex right now.

awful performance - Rams barely ran...split it up 3 ways again....and he was hit behind the line just about every time he touched the ball.....better days ahead hopefully but not as long as there is a 3 headed monster


Better days ahead but that's not saying much. I still feel Hendo is the best RB on the team and am yelling at Mcvay at least 5 times a game for not having him in there, but at this point that's what the Rams are doing. It'll get better once they aren't facing a top rush defense but barring injury, the ceiling is probably unfortunately limited.

Definitely tough rush D which hurt - but as long as there are 3 in the mix he is capped at low value which stinks because he looks very good.....if they finally move on from Brown and go with an Akers/Henderson 1-2 punch at least it would give him some upside.

Is anyone considering dropping him for their playoff run? It seems crazy, but this dude has 28 points in 5 games. He’s very TD dependent with a low ceiling and a low floor.

How would you compare his upside to guys like Fournette and David Johnson? I feel like there is 0 upside unless Akers goes down. Shoot, he might not have much unless Akers and Brown go down.

Hard to do, but I'm dropping him. RBBC is in full effect. 

Picking up Pollard, who doesn't have value now but if Zeke goes down could be a game changer.

 

Oh, and I'd run David Johnson over him in a heartbeat

I don't see any problem at all dropping Darrell - but in a 12-team league, hell - even a 10-teamer - it's a pretty pointless rage drop at this point. There is really no silver bullet RB out there that cures this bust. He's permabenched is all the rage I can get out.

Anyone feeling confident playing Henderson this week now that Akers is down? He has barely handled the ball in weeks so it's anyone's guess what is going to happen this week. He looked good at the start of the year but do we want to start him in championship week?

mildly confident - he was getting the double digits carries for the most part when he was just splitting with Malcolm Brown.

 

Seattle is a decent to good matchup - Darrell is more explosive and catches passes.  Brown was completely phased out when Akers took over making me think he's on the lesser end of the time share - 60-40 in Henderson's favor maybe.  They run 24-32 times a game roughly - def enough touches to make Henderson viable as a low end RB2/flex in ppr formats --  I'd put him at the top of that Hines/ Ahmed( if Gaskin  plays) tier but slightly below Dobbins tier .  TD's are fluky so who knows if he'll score but he'll have the opportunity.

I feel like Brown will be the pass-catching guy but Hendo should get two-thirds of the carries. Either could get goal-line work.  (Brown has scored five TDs this season, no small feat given his role.)  I wouldn't want to trust him outside of deep leagues.
