4 months agoWhat can Darrell Henderson do as a part-time player in Los Angeles? Well, he was also a part-time player in college, and he did quite a bit. In his final two seasons, he averaged over nine yards per touch, caught 43 passes, five receiving touchdowns, rushed for 3,000 yards and 31 touchdowns. He is not going to take over the job from Todd Gurley. At 5’8 and 208 pounds, the Rams do not want him to either. However, he will be on the field whether or not Gurley is healthy. If he is the second back in the committee, he should still see 8-to-10 touches a game. If Gurley does miss some time and Henderson is the lead back, he could see 15 or more touches a game. These are not the touch numbers you require from an RB1, but it is very good for a weekly flex option with boom potential. And when it comes to the flex position, boom potential can be a great option for you. Currently going in the ninth round, Henderson’s price is only going to increase as people see him in the preseason. He will likely end up being the main man in the backfield at some point, as Gurley's knees are going to need rest. This means come prime draft season he could be more than likely a seventh or eighth round selection. But in my mind, this is still an alright price for him. He should do very well in a very good Rams offense. He will not be the target of defenses, and this will help him maximize his touches when he does get them during games. Don’t expect RB1 upside from Henderson. Even if Gurley were to go down, Malcolm Brown is there to split time. Right now he fits perfectly in the RB3 discussion and if Gurley does go down, an RB two finish is not unrealistic.--Dominick Petrillo - RotoBaller
