Darrell Henderson’s Value Jumps to a Top-24 RB in the Wake of the Cam Akers Injury

Back in April, before the NFL Draft, Shawn Siegele and I drafted a team together in one of the new RotoViz TriFlex FFPC dynasty leagues that had just launched. After drafting our first running back, Chuba Hubbard, in the 10th round, and our second RB, Tony Pollard, in the 12th, we waited until the 15th round to draft our third RB: Darrell Henderson.

You probably see where I’m going with this.

This is by no means a victory lap. The Cam Akers Achilles’ injury is devastating to a promising second-year RB who had solidified himself as a first-round startup pick in single QB dynasty leagues and a top-15 pick in redraft. Losing such players to injury – particularly one that occurred before training camp had even started – is never good for the sport or fantasy football.

But, in case you hadn’t noticed, Zero RB – the fantasy football philosophy that RBs are almost always high-risk investments because the more you touch the ball, the higher your likelihood of injury[1] – is kind of a thing here at RotoViz, and Henderson definitely fit the profile up to now, as I mentioned in May when I wrote a diary on our startup draft.

So, how do we view the pair now?
