Andy Behrens explains why the LAR RB will struggle vs. MIN in week 16.
ANDY BEHRENS: Yeah. Listen, I fielded a bunch of questions about Darrell Henderson this week, and I just can't do it, right? He returned from injury, played 18 snaps, and handled eight touches a week ago. Sony Michel in the same game-- 48 snaps, 20 touches. And Michel was great.
Like, Henderson has been fine this year. He doesn't have a 100-yard rushing game yet. Michel has one. It's a good match-up this week. It's Minnesota. It's not something that we should necessarily avoid. They allow 4.7 yards per carry.
But Michel comes into this one with the hot hand. He's gained 323 yards over his last three games. I think he's the guy to play. You talked about it earlier playing him over Zeke. I would do the same thing, and I would certainly play him over Darrell Henderson and send Henderson to the bench.
