2019 Fantasy Outlook
The most electric big-play threat at running back in this year's draft, Henderson averaged an incredible 8.9 YPC the last two seasons for Memphis while handling a heavy workload. He doesn't have the prototypical frame for an NFL starter, but his balance and footwork make him tougher to bring down in traffic than his upright running style suggests, and his incredible acceleration allows him to hit top speed in a hiccup and turn a small crease or tiny patch of green into a huge gain. Henderson also showed he can be an asset as a receiver, both as a check-down option and as a route-runner, but he might need to improve his blocking skills to see significant passing-down action. If he's stuck purely as Todd Gurley's backup, Henderson's touches will be limited, especially if Malcolm Brown also stays in the mix for snaps. The big question is whether Gurley can stay on the field amidst reports of a degenerative condition in his left knee. If not, Henderson could land a key role in an efficient, uptempo offense with strong blocking and impressive downfield weapons. Read Past Outlooks

In line for No. 2 role in backfield
RBLos Angeles Rams
October 13, 2019
With Todd Gurley (quadriceps) sitting out Sunday against the 49ers, Henderson should have a role as the backup to Malcolm Brown, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
It's unclear how much work Henderson will get, but it could be his first real chance to showcase his skills at the NFL level. Through the first five games, Henderson has logged just two offensive snaps and one carry.
