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

Joins Gurley in L.A.

April 26, 2019
The Rams selected Henderson in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 70th overall.
Los Angeles adds some insurance behind Todd Gurley (knee) by adding this explosive runner out of Memphis. Henderson averaged 8.9 yards per carry in back-to-back years, a particularly remarkable feat considering he had 344 carries in that span. He doesn't have the body of a true workhorse at 5-foot-8 and 208 pounds, but he's well-built for that height, and, in a change-of-pace role behind Gurley, Henderson becomes another weapon in the Los Angeles offense.
