Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown may be limited to goal line and short yardage work this upcoming season depending on how RBs Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson perform, in the opinion of RamsWire's Cameron DaSilva.
Huddle Up: The Rams probably will be using a committee at running back, so Brown's role is uncertain at this point. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation because Brown can be avoided if he has a limited role.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers 'is in a great spot to compete for carries' with RB Malcolm Brown and RB Darrell Henderson, according to Matt Bowen of ESPN.com, and Bowen believes Akers offers 'upside' in the passing game.
Huddle Up: After spending a second-round pick on Akers, it is a safe bet that he will see his share of touches as a rookie. Whether he can grab the reins of the backfield and become an every-down option remains to be seen, but he needs to be rostered.

Los Angeles Rams RBs Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson may end up sharing snaps in 2020, based on comments made by general manager Les Snead on Monday, April 6.
'What we do want to be is a team that utilizes more than one workhorse moving the ball, with different skill sets.'
Huddle Up: It probably goes without saying this presumes the Rams don't take a running back in the first two days of the draft. Snead somewhat contradicted himself in his statement as well since using more than one workhorse means the team won't have one player it considers the workhorse. It's a reasonable assumption at this point that Brown will handle the majority of the early-down and goal-line work, while Henderson will assume much of the work in the passing game.

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown (non-injury) returned to a full practice Saturday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: It was Brown's first practice of the week, but he'll be fine to back up Todd Gurley Monday, Nov. 25, against the Baltimore Ravens. He isn't a fantasy consideration.

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 6.
