Fantasy Impact:

"We feel we've got three really good backs," said Rams coach Sean McVay. "What does that mean in terms of the distribution of carries? I think that's to be determined based on how things play themselves out and when we get a chance to actually compete in practice and in those live opportunities." Darrell Henderson, the team's third-round selection in 2019, was a fantasy darling last off-season before barely seeing the field in the regular season. Veteran Malcolm Brown is still in the mix. Additionally, the Rams drafted Cam Akers in this second round in this year's draft. Moving forward Los Angeles figures to shift to more of a RBBC approach rather than the workhorse model they had with Todd Gurley. It is always possible one of these backs (likely Akers) emerges as the lead guy, but for now this is a tough backfield to project.
