Darrell Henderson barely used as Rams rely on quick throws
Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson rushed 8 times for 5 yards in a 27-24, Week 11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.
Henderson played the most snaps and had the most touches among the Rams running backs, but Malcolm Brown led the backfield in rushing yards (20) and Cam Akers was the only one to score (four-yard catch). Jared Goff attempted a season-high 51 passes as Sean McVay essentially abandoned the running game against the Buccaneers' elite run defense. He may use a similar approach in Week 12 against a San Francisco 49ers team that is also apt at shutting down the run. Henderson hasn't had more than 10 touches in nearly a month.
Henderson is averaging 6.0 FanDuel points over the last three games since Akers returned from injury. He is the RB33 in numberFire's Week 12 fantasy rankings and has a salary of $5,900 on FanDuel's main slate. The 49ers' rush defense is 4th in numberFire's efficiency rankings, compared to 16th against the pass.
