Malcolm Brown Shouldn't Be Started In Week 1

Los Angeles Rams running back Malcolm Brown was a thorn last year with his ability to vulture touchdowns from former teammate Todd Gurley. While there is a possibility he does better this year, there's no guarantee with the crowded backfield they're currently trotting out. The team added running back Cam Akers in the draft after drafting Darrell Henderson last offseason. In Week 1, the Rams will debut their running-back-by-committee approach, with Akers likely leading in touches. While Brown should have a role, fantasy managers will likely want to take a wait-and-see approach before they throw him into their lineups in Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Malcolm Brown Should Have A Role In Rams Offense

Los Angeles Rams running back Malcolm Brown is the veteran of the team's current running back trio. He's joined by rookie Cam Akers and second-year back Darrell Henderson Jr. Head coach Sean McVay has been adamant about not having a true No. 1 running back entering the season, which suggests that all three backs will be involved at least to start the year. Brown has been either a No. 2 or No. 3 for the Rams since first joining the team in 2015, so it's safe to guess he won't be getting the bulk of the carries for the team this year. Expect him to see around five touches in the team's Week 1 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He should be left undrafted in all standard fantasy leagues.

Cam Akers Could Lead Committee Backfield For Rams

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that all options are on the table in 2020 as the team moves forward without Todd Gurley in the backfield after the last five seasons. The current running back corps includes Malcolm Brown, Darrell Henderson Jr. and rookie Cam Akers. "We feel we've got three really good backs," said McVay. "What does that mean in terms of the distribution of carries? I think that's to be determined based on how things play themselves out and when we get a chance to actually compete in practice and in those live opportunities." It sounds as though the Rams plan to distribute the workload among all three backs while potentially playing the hot hand on a game-by-game basis. It seems likely that the Rams will focus on developing Akers and Henderson -- second- and third-round picks, respectively, the last two years) -- first and foremost. That means Akers, who can run between the tackles but also serve in the passing game, has the best chance to lead this backfield in touches by season's end. A committee approach will lower the ceiling of each involved, but on pure upside, Akers is the most attractive in fantasy over a full season. He ran for 2,875 yards, 27 touchdowns and averaged 4.9 yards per carry in three seasons at Florida State. Akers also caught 69 passes for 486 yards and seven touchdowns, making him the most complete back of this group.
