Rams Beat: Tre Mason will be given 'every opportunity to develop a hot hand'

STL Today - [Full Article]

Most likely, Rams RB Tre Mason will be given every opportunity to develop a hot hand vs. the Chiefs after his eye-opening display against Seattle. He brings a speed element and a higher potential for the explosive play than Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham.

“(Mason) certainly played well last week,” OC Brian Schottenheimer said. “Popped a couple big runs. Some of it is that they haven’t seen him. Now teams get a better idea of what he’s about.

“I think there’s some things he needs to do, taking care of the football. Obviously that last play was a little scary, but wow, what a talented young man.”

Fantasy Impact: 

This is our feeling too, despite Jeff Fisher's comments that Zac Stacy could see 25 carries this week. Mason showed more pop than either Stacy or Benny Cunningham, who now has a mild knee issue. Mason isn't a safe start, but he has upside in a so-so matchup against the Chiefs.
