Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

The Rams re-signed Malcolm Brown, who was an exclusive rights free agent and who operated as Todd Gurley's primary backup in 2017. If Todd Gurley were to suffer an injury, Brown would be elevated to the Rams' No. 1 back. With the way Sean McVay uses his running back in both the passing and rushing game, Brown would have fantasy appeal.

Fantasy Downside

Brown was Gurley's backup a year ago and finished with just 246 rushing yards on 63 carries. Worse yet, he caught just 9 passes on 11 targets for 53 yards. If Gurley is healthy, Brown won't see the field much.

2018 Bottom Line

Brown is currently listed as our No. 69 ranked RB heading into preseason. Unless Gurley suffers an injury, there's no reason to roster Brown—even as a handcuff to Gurley. Avoid him on draft night.
