Rams RB Cam Akers racked up 118 yards and 3 TDs on 23 carries in Sunday's beatdown of the Broncos. The numbers mark big jumps over his previous season highs. Akers has scored 6 rushing TDs over his past 4 games, though, and topped 5.0 yards per carry in 2 straight games. He now looks much more attractive as a Week 17 fantasy football option at the Chargers than we would have expected even heading into Week 16. RB Malcolm Brown added 19 yards on 2 carries. RB Kyren Williams rushed 6 times for 18 yards.

Rams RB Malcolm Brown (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. Brown played 28% of Los Angeles' offensive snaps last week, finishing with 2 carries and 1 target. His absence vs. the Cardinals this weekend would be a very slight boost for RBs Darrell Henderson and Cam Akers.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson took the rushing lead back in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, rushing 12 times for 56 yards (4.7 per carry). RB Cam Akers gained just 3 yards on 5 carries in his return. Malcolm Brown added 9 yards on 2 carries. Brown logged the backfield's only reception, taking his lone target for 10 yards. Henderson went without a catch on 1 target. RB Ronnie Rivers played but didn't get a touch.

3:01pm EST 11/6/22

Rams RB Cam Akers is officially active for today’s game vs. the Bucs. RBs Darrell Henderson, Ronnie Rivers and Malcolm Brown are also active. It’s a messy situation for fantasy football.

Rams RB Cam Akers will play vs. the Bucs today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "How much he plays will be predicated on the flow of the game," Schefter adds. RB Kyren Williams was not activated for this one, so Akers, Darrell Henderson, Ronnie Rivers and Malcolm Brown are Los Angeles' available RBs. We'll see who's active around 3 pm ET, but you should try to avoid this backfield in fantasy lineups.

Darrell Henderson led Rams RBs in snaps played in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. But Ronnie Rivers paced the backfield in carries and targets. He managed just 21 yards on his 8 carries (2.6 per rush) and 15 yards on 4 catches, among 4 targets. We'd bet on rookie RB Kyren Williams getting significantly involved once he's ready. We also wouldn't be surprised to see the Rams pick up a RB ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline. Henderson rushed only 4 times for 16 yards and drew 2 targets (2 catches, 14 yards) against San Francisco. It's pretty clear that Sean McVay doesn't believe in him as a primary RB. Malcolm Brown mixed in for 5 carries (10 yards) against the 49ers.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson ran for 1 of the team's 3 TDs in Sunday's win over the Panthers. That came as part of just a 12-43-1 rushing line though (3.6 yards pr carry) and 2-9 receiving on 3 targets. RB Malcolm Brown handled 7 carries (for 15 yards) and caught his lone target for 13 more. Cam Akers, of course, turned up inactive and might be headed for a new team. Henderson did control the playing time, getting 46 snaps vs. 16 for Brown and 3 for Ronnie Rivers. That included a 22-4-1 lead in pass routes run.

Rams RB Cam Akers won't be rejoining the team "if the situation continues as it has so far this season," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport writes. Akers has "philosophical and football-related differences" with HC Sean McVay, per Rapoport. Akers won't play against the Panthers today and is expected to draw significant trade interest. We'll see where this goes, but it sounds like we shouldn't expect Akers to be part of Los Angeles' backfield going forward. That leaves Darrell Henderson as the leader of what's been an abysmal running game so far. Malcolm Brown will be the #2 RB, with undrafted rookie Ronnie Rivers as the #3. Rapoport says Rivers "has impressed and should get carries." We'll see what the snap and touch split looks like vs. Carolina today.

Rams RB Cam Akers is out for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers for personal reasons, HC Sean McVay said Friday. McVay wouldn't provide any other details and declined to say whether Akers will rejoin the team going forward, per The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue. We'll update the situation as we learn more. Akers' absence leaves Darrell Henderson as Los Angeles' lead back. Don't expect efficient play in a struggling Rams running game, but Henderson should see enough volume to put up RB2 numbers this weekend. Malcolm Brown will be the Rams' #2 RB.

7:19pm EDT 10/3/22

Rams RB Malcolm Brown was promoted from the practice squad and is active for tonight's game vs. the 49ers. He spent 2017-2020 with the Rams under HC Sean McVay, so he has plenty of experience in the offense. We'll see exactly how much action Brown siphons from RBs Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson tonight. We'd be trying to avoid this backfield.

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.
