Earlier in the week it looked like we could be without both Todd Gurley and David Johnson. Thankfully Johnson is trending in the right direction, but Gurley received the doubtful tag, which means we expect him to sit out. 

Without Gurley I’d expect a heavy dose of Malcolm Brown, at least in regards to the percentage of carries. The Rams have gone extremely pass-heavy the past two weeks and that may continue in Week 6. I project Brown for 17 touches which makes him a top-20 back in both formats even with a difficult matchup.

The other back that deserves attention is Darrell Henderson. You can’t trust him in your lineup, but the Rams have talked about him getting more involved and I currently project him to get most of the targets out of the backfield for the Rams. This could be the week he’s finally unleashed. 

I have running back projections below as well as my favorite DFS plays, which have changed since the start of the week.
