The Los Angeles Rams have yet to officially rule out running back Cam Akers for this week’s game against the New York Giants, but he is unlikely to play on Sunday. That leaves the Rams with Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown in the backfield for an enticing matchup against a terrible defense. It’s Henderson, however, who most deserves to be in your lineup.
Fantasy Football analysis: Rams RBs Darrell Henderson, Malcolm Brown
Rams head coach Sean McVay said Henderson will start again this week. And why wouldn’t he? Last Sunday against the Bills, the Rams let Henderson lead the way, and he rolled up 114 yards and a touchdown. In that same game, Brown had just seven touches. The team has a clear favorite when Akers isn’t able to play.
Last week against the 49ers, the Giants allowed opposing running backs to find the end zone three times. Henderson may not be one of the upper echelon back running backs this week, but he’s bound to have a good day and belongs in your lineup. He’s only $5,800 in DraftKings leagues this week too.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Darrell Henderson.
