Darrell Henderson Jr. Note

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.

Michel was actually having a surprisingly impressive camp with the Patriots, but before we could figure out exactly how he'd factor into the running back mix in New England, he was shipped off to the Rams. He'll almost certainly be just a veteran depth piece for Darrell Henderson, but he could make an impact if Henderson needs to miss time (and he is currently battling a thumb injury). Michel may have only had 79 carries last year, but he did average a massive 5.7 yards per carry on them. Michel remains only an insurance policy back for now, unless we find out that Henderson needs to miss significant time.
