Darrell Henderson Jr. Fantasy Football Outlook (2021)

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Wed, Aug 25th 2021, 11:06am EDT

The year-ending injury to Cam Akers opens a door of opportunity for Henderson, who, just like Akers, was a Day 2 draft pick by this regime. In fact, Henderson was more efficient than Akers in nearly every category last year, though Akers had the momentum at the end of the season. The Rams traded for Sony Michel, but that seems like much more of a depth move than anything else, and Henderson is a rock-solid RB2 with top-10 upside. Monitor his recent thumb injury, but for now, it looks like he will be ready for Week 1.
