Darrell Henderson not expected to have an every-down role
Per Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead, the team is anticipating using multiple backs in different roles in 2020.
Todd Gurley never handled fewer than 250 touches in any of his 5 seasons with the team, but was cut in March. Darrell Henderson was initially thought to be the heir to Gurley's workhorse role, but Snead stated that the team wants to utilize "more than one workhorse moving the ball, with different skill sets."
Henderson was an upside third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, but had difficulty finding the field even behind a banged-up Gurley, amassing just 184 yards from scrimmage all year. Still, Henderson's elite efficiency at the college level (and 4.49-second 40-yard dash time) could lead to solid fantasy numbers even in a committee backfield.
