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

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.

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles claims he wasn't concussed in Week 7

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles on the big hit he took in Week 7...

“It definitely hurt,'' he said. "A couple plays later, I just (saw) this light buzz around my eyes and I was trying to catch ‘em. But I was like, ‘let’s get the ball and run again.’"

The hit happened on Charles' touchdown run in the second quarter. He went on to describe other symptoms that could be consistent with those of a concussion. He said he had flashbacks to scenes from his childhood. But he indicated he was never checked for a concussion because, he said, he didn't have one. Charles finished the game.

“I didn’t have a concussion,'' he said. "It was definitely a hit that shocked me. I didn’t think I had to go through the concussion protocol and all that because I didn’t want to go through that again. That’s what happened in the playoffs. I was definitely fine. I think I came out pretty good.

"I could definitely play through stuff like that. It wasn’t a concussion. If it was a concussion I wouldn’t remember the plays or remember none of my teammates’ names or remember what sideline to go to. I definitely remember everything. It was just a huge hit.''

Fantasy Impact:

It's unclear if the NFL will take any action here by putting Charles into the concussion protocol, but this is something for owners to file away.
