DARRELL HENDERSON - RB LOS ANGELES RAMS
Updated: Mar 5, 2021
With Cam Akers being ruled out for Sunday’s contest against the Seahawks, I think Darrell Henderson is a smash play. The Seahawks are the 10th best matchup for opposing RBs in terms of fantasy points scored against, and with a more limited backfield for the Rams, I think that we could see a heavy workload for Henderson. This is a game that both teams need to win in order to have the upper hand in the division race and will see both teams play to their strengths. I see that as the Rams trying to keep the ball out of the hands of Russell Wilson. Henderson showed early in the year that he had fantasy relevance and solid production for a starter, but his value dipped when the backfield became more crowded. As of now, it is just Henderson and Malcolm Brown as the two players of importance as ball carriers. I think that Henderson is someone that can be started and can produce enough to be worth the flex risk.
