The Saints have cut veteran RB Malcolm Brown. He last only a couple of weeks on the roster. For now, New Orleans will roll with Mark Ingram, Tony Jones, Abram Smith, Dwayne Washington, and Devine Ozigbo behind Alvin Kamara.

The Saints have signed veteran RB Malcolm Brown. The former Ram and Dolphin spent last year in Miami, posting 33 carries for 125 yards and 1 score (7 games). He figures to slot in no higher than RB3 behind Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram. Even if Kamara is suspended for 4-6 games, Brown can be left alone in fantasy drafts.

Dolphins RBs Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed are active for today’s game vs. the Jets. Both guys came off the COVID list on Friday. Gaskin had been operating as Miami's clear lead back, averaging 17.6 carries and 3.2 targets over his last 5 games. He’s an upside RB2 vs. the Jets’ league-worst RB defense. RB Duke Johnson is also active for Miami. RB Malcolm Brown remains on IR.

Dolphins RB Malcolm Brown (quad) is expected to return to practice this week, according to The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. Brown's status has suddenly become important with RBs Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed and Phillip Lindsay on the COVID list. Brown has been out since Week 7 but could play a significant role vs. the Jets on Sunday. We probably won't have a good idea of what Miami's backfield will look like for that one until late in the week.

Dolphins RB Phillip Lindsay has joined teammates Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed on the COVID list. All 3 are vaccinated, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, so they have a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. Miami has RBs Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks on the practice squad, with RB Malcolm Brown still on IR with the quad injury he suffered back in Week 7.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed has joined teammate Myles Gaskin on the COVID list. We'll see if they can get cleared for Miami's next game in Week 15 vs. the Jets. The Dolphins currently have Phillip Lindsay on the active roster, Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks on the practice squad and Malcolm Brown on IR.

Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin tested positive for COVID, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Gaskin is vaccinated, so there's a chance he's cleared in time for Miami's Week 15 game vs. the Jets. If not, the Dolphins would be down to RBs Phillip Lindsay and Salvon Ahmed on the active roster. RBs Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks are on the practice squad, while RB Malcolm Brown (quad) is eligible to come off IR

The Dolphins have claimed RB Phillip Lindsay off waivers. He joins a backfield that has been dominated by Myles Gaskin lately. Claiming Lindsay probably means Miami would rather not give Gaskin quite so many touches. The former Texan and Bronco has faired poorly as a passing-down back throughout his career, though. So Gaskin should continue to control at least that area of Miami's backfield. We'd bet on Gaskin remaining a decent option in low RB2 territory, but his touch floor could be coming down. We'll see just what the Dolphins have in mind for Lindsay. Miami has also recently mixed Duke Johnson in and could get Malcolm Brown back from a quad injury that landed him on IR.

The Dolphins have signed RB Duke Johnson to their practice squad. The 28-year-old spent a couple of weeks on Jacksonville's practice squad in September but has otherwise been unemployed since being released by the Texans in February. There's opportunity in after RB Malcolm Brown was placed on IR, but Johnson is only worth adding in the deepest of fantasy leagues right now. We'll see if he gets promoted to the active roster.

Dolphins RB Malcolm Brown will be placed on IR with a quad injury suffered in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, HC Brian Flores said Monday. Brown will be out at least the next 3 weeks vs. the Bills, Texans and Ravens. He's played 28% of Miami's offensive snaps and averaged 4.7 carries and .7 targets per game, so his absence leaves behind a little extra work for RBs Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed.

The Dolphins released rookie RB Gerrid Doaks. For now, Miami will roll with Myles Gaskin, Malcom Brown and Salvon Ahmed in the backfield. Only Gaskin is ranked as a top-50 option in our 2021 RB rankings.

Dolphins RB Malcolm Brown started Saturday's preseason opener vs. the Bears. Per Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Brown out-snapped RB Myles Gaskin 16 to 7 with the 1st-team offense. Gaskin then played into the 2nd quarter with Miami's backups. "You saw all 3 backs played, all 3 of them got carries," HC Brian Flores said after the game, referring to Brown, Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. "Pick one out and put them in, basically. We like all 3 guys. They all do good things. And I think we saw that today. And [we'll] just keep working all 3 guys." That sure sounds like this will be an ugly committee backfield. We'll get another look at the rotation in Miami's 2nd preseason game. But, for now, we've moved Gaskin well down the RB rankings and Brown up.

The Dolphins are signing RB Malcolm Brown, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown set career highs last year in carries (101), rushing yards (419) and all receiving categories (33 targets, 23 catches, 162 yards). His departure leaves Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson more room in the Rams backfield for now. Miami has been commonly linked to the top incoming rookie RBs in mock drafts. We'll be curious to see how else they address a backfield that was dominated by Myles Gaskin in 2020.

3:01pm EST 1/3/21

Rams RBs Cam Akers (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He got in just 1 limited practice this week after suffering a high-ankle sprain 14 days ago. Akers figures to be operating at far less than 100% today and is a risky fantasy play. His presence, though, also makes RB Malcolm Brown a shaky option.

Rams RBs Cam Akers (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Cardinals. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but it sounds like he’ll be a game-time decision for this win-and-in game for the Rams. RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) is out, so it’ll be RB Malcolm Brown in a workhorse role if Akers can’t go.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) has been placed on IR. So he's out for Week 17 and would also miss the Rams' first 2 playoff games. RB Cam Akers seems unlikely to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend due to his high-ankle sprain, so it'll be RB Malcolm Brown in a workhorse role.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in yesterday's loss to the Seahawks and is considered unlikely to play vs. the Cardinals on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. RB Cam Akers suffered the same injury in Week 15 and isn't a good bet to be available this weekend. Look for RB Malcolm Brown to play something close to an every-down role vs. Arizona.
