Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson has 'definitely established himself' as the starting running back, head coach Sean McVay said following the Week 1 win over the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Sony Michel will likely see his role increase as the season goes on, but it sounds like Henderson will have every opportunity to remain the lead back. Consider him a RB2 candidate.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson ran 16 times for 70 yards and a touchdown and added one catch for 17 yards in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Henderson's final line looks good, but it comes with the caveat that nine of his carries and 56 of his yards on the ground came in the final 10 minutes of the game. Translation: he wasn't much of a presence as the Rams were building their early lead. This performance could end up being one of the better ones of the year for Henderson, as he will undoubtedly yield more work to Sony Michel as the season progresses. Consider him a decent low-end RB2/high-end flex in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thumb) suffered a mild thumb sprain Monday, Aug. 23 and is expected to be ready for the season opener, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Henderson's fantasy managers should use this as an opportunity to scoop up Xavier Jones and/or Jake Funk if they can. Durability has been a problem for Henderson in his first two seasons as a pro despite limited work. Jones appears to have a slight lead over Funk for the right to be the handcuff, although the two would likely split work if Henderson is forced to miss time at some point this season.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thumb) suffered a thumb injury of unknown severity during practice and did not return Monday, Aug. 23, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Unless it is a catastrophic thumb injury, it seems likely Henderson will be able to address this problem soon and be ready for the start of the season. However, it is another reminder Henderson has struggled to stay healthy - mostly with ankle issues - since becoming a pro and may not be cut out to handle a heavy workload. Xavier Jones and rookie Jake Funk have looked good so far this month and would likely split time should Henderson miss any game action.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson is an 'every-down back,' according to comments made by head coach Sean McVay on Monday, July 26. Per McVay, it has never been an 'ability' question but 'how do we keep him available?' To that end, Henderson is not expected to play at all during the preseason.
Huddle Up: Henderson has compiled less than 200 touches since entering the league as a third-round pick in 2019, yet he has suffered two high-ankle sprains - which have kept him from finishing out both seasons - and a hamstring pull. In other words, McVay's concerns are warranted. It seems like a strong bet Henderson's workload will be monitored closely throughout the first half of the season before McVay makes a decision on whether he is healthy enough to be featured. Henderson should be drafted as a low-end RB2 with upside.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (undisclosed) was limited during offseason workouts because an undisclosed injury but should be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Henderson likely will be the No. 2 running back for the Rams but should still receive a handful of touches each game. He can be a late round pick in drafts or a handcuff to Cam Akers.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson will have a 'complementary' role in the backfield behind RB Cam Akers this season, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list because of the high ankle sprain he suffered during the Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Malcolm Brown is the only healthy running back at this point, but Cam Akers may be available for the Week 17 game. Fantasy players should monitor the situation during the week, but Brown can be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he receives most of the work at running back.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 16 and is likely out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Malcolm Brown may be the last-man standing in the backfield for Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals. Jared Goff (thumb) is also at risk of missing the game, and Brown could be leaned upon heavily. View him as a high-end RB2.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) ran 12 times for 62 yards but was not targeted in the passing game in Week 16 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Henderson got tackled from behind just shy of the goal line midway through the third quarter and did not return. He showed his usual explosion on a few runs before departing and figures to be a high-upside handcuff to Cam Akers moving forward. As for the remainder of 2020, the fact that he did not return suggests he'll be hard-pressed to play in Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals. With Akers also on the shelf, it means Malcolm Brown could have some low-end RB2 viability.
