Huddle Up: Henderson indeed appears to have found the ideal pro fit, but as long as Todd Gurley is atop the depth chart -- question marks and all -- Henderson should be valued as no more than a RB4/5 with upside in drafts.

Huddle Up: Even if Todd Gurley is still not his elite RB1 self, he still figures to be the main back in L.A. but Henderson will get his share of work and should be valued as a RB4/5 with upside. Just don't expect him to finish anywhere near the fourth-best running back in fantasy as Kamara did as a rookie in 2017.

Huddle Up: The Rams were have labeled Henderson as a "change-of-pace" back and a "unique playmaker" they have been looking for since the Lance Dunbar experiment failed a couple of seasons ago. The 208- pound Memphis product is a bit of a one-track runner in the Tevin Coleman mode, so he does bring something different to the table. What he does in training camp this summer figures to go a long way in determining if he can pass Malcolm Brown on the depth chart and become Todd Gurley's handcuff.

Huddle Up: Regardless of what McVay and GM Les Snead say, it seems a little suspect that the Rams would part with two third-round picks to move up and select Henderson if they just planned on giving Gurley the same percentage of touches that they did in 2018. Obviously a lot can happen between now and Week 1, but Henderson is absolutely someone to keep an eye on as he could be in line for a significant role as a rookie.

Huddle Up: Henderson could immediately become the primary backup for Todd Gurley. If that's the case, he will become a must-add handcuff for Gurley owners.
