Darrell Henderson Jr. Week 2 Outlook - Rams at Colts

Yes, it was the first game for Sony Michel in a LA Rams uniform, but all the talk about Darrell Henderson being the featured option for the Rams sure seems to be true after what we saw on Sunday night. Henderson totaled 17 touches to Michel's one and he appears to be the main guy moving forward. Michel is going to be there for a depth option and nothing more, which is good news for those that grabbed Henderson at a massive discount this off-season. Heading into week two, Henderson has a tougher matchup up against the historically stout Colts run defense, but they did show some cracks last week as they allowed Chris Carson to rumble for 5.7 YPC. The Rams could focus on the passing attack again this week, which doesn't leave Henderson with a ton of opportunity, but we know this offense is going to be in the red zone frequently and Henderson's going to be the goal-line option for them. He has an excellent chance of finding the end zone again here and he can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end RB2.
