We’re in the final week of the fantasy football regular season. We know who these running back are, and who has a chance to help us get that crucial win to get us to the playoffs.
Fantasy football managers have been working for 13 weeks to get to this point. It’s the final week of the regular season. With how strange this season has been, most of the teams in fantasy still don’t know exactly where they stand in the playoff bracket. That’s because the players that dominated at the start aren’t doing that anymore. A team with Ja’Marr Chase, Kyler Murray, and Derrick Henry likely went 6-0 or something like that, but they might have lost every game since then.
There aren’t many dominant fantasy players this season. Jonathan Taylor is the only one who is a guarantee at this point. And he’s on a bye week this week. Speaking of byes, some of the best tweener running backs are out this week. Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson are out with the New England Patriots taking the week off. Whoever is the starter this week in Philadelphia is taking a seat. Myles Gaskin is off the board, as well.
That doesn’t mean we have a lack of options this week. In fact, with so many teams dealing with injuries, and other teams still letting the running back position continue as a committee, guessing right on the running back position will win you this week.
Which running back sleepers will win your final week in fantasy football?
10. Darrell Henderson Jr. – Los Angeles Rams
Darrell Henderson Jr. was out last week, and Sony Michel balled out. Well, Henderson was technically active, but he didn’t play a snap. For the first time all season, Michel got over 70 yards. He actually got 121 yards. However, to be fair, those were some huge holes he was running through this week. Darrell Henderson Jr. would have crushed it just as much, if not more so.
This week, Henderson is expected to return to the lineup of a rejuvenated Rams offense. The Rams play on Monday night, so this is obviously a risk, but we have to imagine that the Rams will go with Henderson now that’s he’s another week healthier. The Rams are taking on the Cardinals defense that’s allowed more than 1,100 yards on the ground this season. Henderson will get plenty of chances to make big plays as the Cardinals defense focuses more on blitzing the quarterback.
