Darrell Henderson Jr.
RB - FA
Week 14 Outlook
The Los Angeles Rams waived RB Darrell Henderson Jr. in anticipation of the return of RB Kyren Williams' return.
Henderson was solid in his return to action, signing with the Rams once Williams was placed on injured reserve after being a free agent to begin the season. In four games, Henderson had 46 carries for 112 yards and two touchdowns, and he had 10 catches for 103 yards. He doesn't hold any fantasy value any further, and Royce Freeman will likely act as the RB2 going forward.
Darrell Henderson Jr. rushed for one yard on six carries with a touchdown in the Rams 17-16 win over the Seahawks. He also caught 4-of-7 targets for an additional 28 yards through the air.
It was a very forgettable afternoon on the ground for Henderson that was salvaged by his touchdown. Before the bye, he was seeming to play the 1A role but it was Royce Freeman who led the team in carries. With Kyren Williams expected back next week, Henderson is likely off the fantasy radar.
Darrell Henderson Jr. rushed for 19 yards on ten carries in the Rams' 3-20 loss to the Packers. He also caught both of his targets for 16 yards through the air.
Henderson has split the Rams workload with Royce Freeman, limiting their respective upsides had only one of them take the lead back role. Henderson is a tough start, but may only be needed for one more game with Kyren Williams set to return soon after the Rams' bye week.
The Rams have signed Darrell Henderson Jr. to their active roster after he started for the team in Kyren Williams' absence.
Henderson seems to be in line to start in Week 9 against the Packers, and with Matthew Stafford's status in doubt for the match, the veteran RB could see an increased role in the offense. Henderson seems as though he will be the lead back for the team's next two games, as Kyren Williams is still on the IR.
Darrell Henderson Jr. rushed for 31 yards on 12 carries and caught three passes for a team-high 54 yards in Sunday's 43-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Henderson averaged a dismal 2.6 yards per carry on the ground against Dallas' tough defense on Sunday, but he was able to slightly make up for that with his involvement in the passing game. He got three receptions over the course of the afternoon and was able to turn that into 54 yards, which was good for the most on the team. It's hard to trust this backfield for fantasy purposes and fantasy managers should avoid starting the veteran RB in the coming weeks.
