Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson got off to a red-hot start to the year. He was the RB9 in PPR leagues through two weeks, despite the fact that he had to leave early with a rib injury in Week 2.

Henderson was sidelined in Week 3, but it sounds like he's good to go in Week 4, according to head coach Sean McVay.

It's not totally clear how the workload in this backfield will shake out, though. Sony Michel has been pretty effective in relief of Henderson. He handled 10 carries for 46 yards once Henderson went down in Week 2, and turned 20 carries into 67 yards against the stout Tampa Bay Buccaneers' run defense in Week 3.

While Henderson was operating as the clear RB1 when healthy, it's likely that Michel will eat into his workload a bit as they ease him back into action. But Henderson should still be looking at an efficient game against an Arizona Cardinals' run defense that's below average by DVOA.

Henderson remains a strong rest-of-season value, checking in at RB20 in our rest-of-season PPR rankings.
