Draft note
by John Paulsen
Brown figures to serve as the backup to Myles Gaskin, but he’ll have to outplay Salvon Ahmed for that role. Brown turned 124 touches into 581 yards and five touchdowns last year, his fifth season for the Rams.

MIA RB Malcolm Brown - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Malcolm Brown is coming off a career-best 581-yard season with the Rams. Brown was solid on the ground with 419 yards and five touchdowns. But he also made an impact out of the backfield, hauling in 23 of his 33 targets for 162 yards. He’s projected to be the direct backup to Myles Gaskin after joining the Dolphins this season.

Fantasy Downside
While Brown was a nice role player for the Rams, at the end of the day he only averaged 36 yards per game. He joins a Dolphins team where he’s the obvious backup, and even then he’ll likely be fighting with Salvon Ahmed or rookie draft pick Gerrid Doaks for backup touches.

2021 Bottom Line
Brown is really only valuable as a handcuff to Gaskin. It’s hard to see him carving out a role large enough to warrant fantasy consideration. We’re only projecting him to finish with around 31 scrimmage yards per game, with limited scoring opportunities. If something happens to Gaskin, which could since he missed time last year, then Brown becomes intriguing. But as of now he’s outside the top 50 running backs and is mostly waiver wire material.
