2018 Fantasy Outlook
A touchdown monster at Coastal Carolina who showed some intriguing upside in the preseason after being drafted in the sixth round, Henderson didn't get much of a chance to show what he could do in the NFL as a rookie until the final week of 2017, when he flashed his nose for the end zone on a highlight-reel 29-yard TD catch. Slightly undersized for a feature back at 5-7, 198, the 25-year-old can run with surprising power due to a strong lower body and nimble feet that make it tough for defenders to square him up, and he has more than enough speed (4.48 40) to do damage in the open field. There are still plenty of holes in his game due to his small-school background and limited experience, but his athleticism can't be ignored, and after the Broncos parted ways with C.J. Anderson in the offseason, Henderson could get his chance in 2018. He'll likely enter training camp behind Devontae Booker and third-round pick Royce Freeman on the depth chart, but another impressive exhibition showing could move him up quickly. Read Past Outlooks

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Known to teammates as "Hop," De'Angelo Henderson was drafted by Denver in the sixth round, the fourth potential returner the team took in the 2017 NFL draft. Look for Henderson's early work to come on special teams as he was coached early in his time at Coastal Carolina by current Broncos special teams coordinator Brock Olivo. On offense, the depth chart seems stacked against him at running back, but free-agent acquisition Jamaal Charles is no lock to make the team on his ailing knees and neither C.J. Anderson nor Devontae Booker performed well enough last year to not have their jobs up for grabs. Though he played at the FCS level, Henderson's 58 total touchdowns, including at least one in 26 straight games, over the past three seasons is impressive. General manager John Elway likened Henderson's short, compact frame to Anderson, but, with all due respect to Anderson, Henderson enters the NFL as the more explosive athlete, running a 4.48-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine with a 34-inch vertical leap. Anderson ran a 4.60 40-yard dash and had a 32-inch vertical by comparison.
