Darrell Henderson Jr. Week 7 Outlook - Lions at Rams

By Kyle Yates (FantasyPros), Wed, Oct 20th 2021, 6:14pm EDT

There are only six other RBs in the NFL right now that are averaging more fantasy points per game than Henderson. While that's extremely impressive on a surface level, it's even more impressive when you take into account that Henderson has done that against rock-solid defenses like Chicago, Indianapolis, and Arizona. He's faced some easier matchups the past couple of weeks against Seattle and the Giants and we're seeing what that means for fantasy purposes as he's delivered some big performances. Looking forward, Henderson now gets to take on the Lions defense that is allowing the most fantasy points to opposing RBs so far this season with an average of 25.2 points per game. Additionally, he gets to take on the Houston Texans defense in week eight and then the Tennessee Titans defense in week nine. The schedule has dramatically opened up for the talented RB and there's a very good chance that he wins people championships this year with how well he's playing. He belongs in your lineup this week as a top-5 option.
