Daily Dose: The Rams drafted a top fantasy rookie

Each weekday, will be taking a look around the internet for the top Rams headlines of the day. Here's a look at what's out there for Tuesday, April 30 about your Los Angeles Rams.


TOP FANTASY ROOKIE's Michael Fabiano says he doesn't expect 2019's crop of rookie talent to make a huge splash in fantasy football leagues next season, but he does have a list of the rookies who could impress if they get the chance.

Fabiano has the Rams' No. 70 draft pick in the middle of his list, running back Darrell Henderson. Here's why:

7. Darrell Henderson, RB, Los Angeles Rams: "An explosive collegiate playmaker who averaged almost nine yards per rush in 2018, Henderson had more runs of 20-plus yards (27) than any other back in the 2019 class. He also combined for 63 catches in his three years at Memphis. Questions about Todd Gurley's knee will make Henderson a very popular (and potentially valuable) handcuff in fantasy leagues."

The dust has settled following the NFL Draft and Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox has his grades. For the Rams, Knox handed out a passing grade, citing a bonafide first-round talent in safety Taylor Rapp and impressive support coming to the backfield for running back Todd Gurley.

Overall Grade: B "The selection of running back Darrell Henderson (No. 70) in the third round could be seen as a warning sign about the health of Todd Gurley's knee, but it really feels more like it's about extending the latter's career. Henderson has the speed and burst to be a change-of-pace back who lightens Gurley's workload moving forward."
