News: 3 days agoBrown rushed three times for four yards and caught three passes for 15 yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to San Francisco.
Spin: Despite playing more snaps than both Darrell Henderson and Cam Akers, Brown wasn't a notable factor in the offense. The veteran running back continued to see most of his playing time in passing situations and on third downs, and it was encouraging he remained involved in the offense after fumbling on the Rams' first possession. However, his fantasy results have been lackluster each of the past two weeks with just six rushes for 24 yards and three receptions for 23 yards. With the Rams committed to utilizing all three of their running backs, Brown's upside currently appears tied to him finding the end zone.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: With Todd Gurley out of the picture in Los Angeles, Brown will compete with second-year Darrell Henderson and rookie Cam Akers for touches in the Rams' backfield. Brown is entering his sixth NFL season having yet to eclipse 69 carries or 11 targets in a campaign. Brown could factor in on early downs and near the goal line (he's 224 pounds and scored five touchdowns last season) but is a long shot for anything more than situational duties and is unlikely to factor in as a receiver. Consider him for your bench in deep leagues.
