Week 7 Rankings

Darrell Henderson Jr. Note

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.

Michel has remained a change-of-pace back in this offense as Henderson has simply dominated the starting work, but he's seen some work in games where LA has gone up big and is looking to run out the clock. In any normal week, starting Michel would be a very risky game to play. However, we know that the Rams are going to cover the gigantic spread in this matchup and they're most likely going to run the ball for the majority of the second half. Michel should be able to see enough work to be a viable fantasy asset this week for teams that are desperate for a starting option. There's certainly some risk involved as he will only be involved if the game is out of hand, but the path for relevancy is there.
