RB - LAR
This Week Outlook
The Rams placed RB Darrell Henderson on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain.
Henderson will be sidelined until at least the NFC Championship game, should the Rams make it that far. Cam Akers (ankle) appears unlikely to play as well, which means Malcolm Brown should lead this backfield in touches against Arizona in Week 17. Jared Goff (thumb) won't start this one either, so expectations should be very tempered for LA's offense as a whole.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Rams RB Darrell Henderson is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 16.
Henderson is undergoing tests to determine the severity of the injury but he isn't expected to be available for Week 17. Cam Akers is also dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which means Malcolm Brown could very much be on the fantasy radar next weekend. We'll monitor the practice reports for both Henderson and Akers this week.
Darrell Henderson rushed 12 times for 62 yards during the Rams 9-20 loss to the Seahawks in Week 16.
With Cam Akers (ankle) sitting this one out, he and Malcolm Brown operated in a timeshare, though it was Henderson who lead the way. He wasn't targeted in the passing game while Brown saw three targets. He'll be an RB3 against the Cardinals in Week 17 if Akers can't suit up.
Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) is doubtful to return in Sunday's Week 16 game against the Seahawks.
Cam Akers (ankle) isn't playing in this one, which leaves Malcolm Brown as the lone RB to soak up touches this afternoon. Henderson ran 12 times for 62 yards before departing.
Darrell Henderson rushed one time for negative yardage and gained only five yards on his lone reception during the Rams' 20-23 loss to the Jets in Week 15.
If it wasn't apparent over the last couple of weeks, this is Cam Akers backfield now. Henderson hasn't even seen a formidable role and has only seen four total touches over the last two weeks. He can safely be dropped heading into championship week and is only fantasy relevant if Akers were to go down with an injury.
