Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
When Kerryon Johnson is on the field, he's dynamic and for the most part fantasy gold. Unfortunately, he's rarely on the field due to injuries. Now the Lions spent a 2nd round pick D'Andre Swift who figures to get a hefty amount of work as well. I'd avoid Johnson this year and target the rookie SwiftLast season Henderson had his opportunities to prove that he can be the next guy up and did not live up to expectations. Now, the Rams added rookie Cam Akers who looks more likely to handle the bulk of the workload leaving Henderson in as nothing more than a handcuff for now.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We all know Johnson's struggled to stay on the field over his first two seasons, and it led the Lions to draft D'Andre Swift at the top of the second round. You don't draft a running back at the top of the second round to not use him. Johnson's skillset clashes with that of Swift, so it's unlikely he sees more than 10-12 touches per game.Some Henderson truthers are dead-set on him being "the guy" in this offense, but the Rams selecting Cam Akers with their first pick in the draft is extremely worrisome. They used a second-round pick on Akers, while Henderson himself was taken with a third-round pick. I'm not willing to say that Henderson is completely out of contention, but his value took a blow in the draft. This is likely to be a timeshare backfield, making him a risky RB3 in redraft leagues.

Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With D'Andre Swift now in town, it's hard to see Johnson having any sort of top-tier fantasy impact. Johnson will have upside if Swift gets injured, but these two might cancel out each other's true potential this upcoming season.Henderson was drafted in the 3rd round last year by the LA Rams, but he's currently on a free-fall drop in ADP due to the arrival of Cam Akers. Akers is an athletic RB prospect out of Florida State, but he lacks refinement in the key areas of the position. Akers is at his best in space, which leads me to think that the Rams may be more keen on using Akers as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. That would lead to Henderson being the predominant ball-carrier in between the tackles. Henderson is still going to be involved in this offense, so he's a value at his current ADP. However, he does not have an incredibly high ceiling with Akers' presence and a poor offensive line in front of him. He's a fine bench RB for your fantasy roster that you can plug in on bye weeks.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 They invested heavily in Henderson by trading up to 70 last year to get him. Hendo is arguably the most efficient college RB ever, was among the league's best in both yards created per carry & juke rate, Malcolm Brown has played 54 regular season G's & has less than 1000 yds. @DFFMemphis
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Kerryon Johnson came into 2019 with a massive amount of hype and disappointed a lot of fantasy owners. With just one game over 50 yards rushing, he injured himself in Week 7 and only returned in the last couple of weeks to do very little. He now shares the backfield with the far-more-talented D'Andre Swift and will likely fall into a backup role alongside Bo Scarborough, Ty Johnson and a dozen other Lions RB disappointments by the halfway point of the season. He's a hard pass for me.Please don't fall for Darrell Henderson this time. I saw him go in the second round of redraft leagues at times last year which was insane even then. The guy isn't very good, he doesn't catch passes and this offence is nothing compared to what it used to be. At best he's a committee back with no passing down upside and little handcuff value. Hard pass.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
If he could ever finish a season he's been on pace for 200+ carries and at least each 30 targets the last 2 years. Just needs to survive the draft.
