Los Angeles Rams RB Xavier Jones is someone the team is 'expecting to count on throughout the season,' according to head coach Sean McVay. Per McVay, Jones has impressed in pass protection and with his overall awareness.
Huddle Up: New starter Darrell Henderson has never handled the kind of work usually associated with feature backs and it seems unlikely he'll be asked to do so now. While there is little chance Jones will overtake Henderson at any point, it appears he is close to locking up the backup job and will see enough playing time to be on fantasy radars everywhere. Especially given Henderson's durability issues, it would not be surprising if Jones makes multiple starts this year.
