Rams RB Tre Mason 'still expected to get the lion's share of the carries' early on

STL Today - [Full Article]

Even with Todd Gurley on the active roster, and potentially being available for opening day, the last thing the Rams want to do is rush him back. With that in mind Tre Mason, impressive as a rookie a year ago, is still expected to get the lion’s share of the carries early in the season. Benny Cunningham has proven to be a capable rotation player and third-down back.

Fantasy Impact: 

Mason was the #15 RB in PPR formats from Week 7 on, once he started to see heavy touches. Unfortunately for his fantasy value, the Rams drafted Gurley with the #10 overall pick, so Mason is not likely to hold onto the starting job for long. His fantasy stock will drop on the news that Gurley avoided PUP, so a Gurley/Mason combo looks like a good option on draft day for those not afraid for some uncertainty early in the season.
