Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson is considered a game-time decision for their 4:25 p.m. ET matchup against the Jaguars on Sunday, though for what it's worth, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported late the night before that the team is not optimistic about Henderson's chances of playing.

Fantasy Football Outlook For Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel

by Sean Koerner 

Darrell Henderson remains a game-time decision with a thigh injury. Unfortunately, the Rams play in the late slate of games, meaning there will be fewer backup options if he's unable to play. If you have Sony Michel, I would try to leave a RB/Flex slot open for the afternoon games if he starts for the injured Henderson.

If Henderson is ruled out, Michel will jump up into the low-end RB2 range.

Head coach Sean McVay has recently voiced frustration game planning around an injury-prone RB like Henderson. There is a chance Michel could have a more prominent role in the future, even once Henderson is closer to 100% health.
