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

Settling in as pro
RBLos Angeles Rams
August 20, 2019
Henderson said the game slowed down for him Saturday against the Cowboys, and head coach Sean McVay noted it was a step in the right direction with his assignments, ESPN's Lindsey Thiry reports.
There's a lot of optimism surrounding Henderson's fantasy stock, and he profiles as a the change-of-pace back McVay and the Los Angeles offense have been missing the past two seasons. Additionally, Todd Gurley's (knee) status is still a bit of a mystery -- Los Angeles is currently employing an every-other-day practice schedule for the No. 1 back. Malcolm Brown is also in the picture, and after matching Detroit's offer sheet for him, the Rams obviously have plans for the fifth-year pro. Henderson's explosiveness should lead to a number of big plays throughout his rookie campaign, but there's likely to be a lot of week-to-week inconsistency if Gurley and Brown both remain healthy.
