Brown was on the field for just eight offensive snaps and caught his only target for 10 yards during Sunday's 36-31 win over Seattle. This was the second consecutive week that Brown didn't receive a rushing attempt. He's averaging 5.1 yards per tote for the campaign and is locked in as Todd Gurley's backup, but until there's a more consistent role in the offense, it's impossible to rely on Brown in fantasy settings. In deep leagues, Brown remains a stash candidate because of the potential uptick in work if Gurley were to ever miss time with an injury.
Brown caught an 18-yard pass for a touchdown during Sunday's 45-35 loss to New Orleans. He played just six of 60 offensive snaps and didn't have a rushing attempt. The Rams got behind early and never held a lead against the Saints, so game script was against Brown on Sunday. He continues to show well when given an opportunity, but with Jared Goff leading a potent aerial attack and Todd Gurley having a historic season out of the backfield, there just isn't enough work for Brown to make a fantasy impact most weeks.
Brown played just nine of 78 offensive snaps and rushed once for seven yards during Sunday's 29-27 win over the Packers. This was a tape-measuring matchup for the Rams, and the game was close throughout, so it wasn't surprising to see Todd Gurley hog the workload out of the backfield. Brown's fantasy upside will remain capped as long as Gurley is healthy, as the No. 2 back's opportunities have been limited to garbage time to this point of the season. Still, Brown is a worth considering as a speculative stash in deep settings.
Brown rushed for 65 yards on 13 carries and added one reception for six yards Sunday in the Rams' 39-10 win over the 49ers. Brown actually surpassed starting running back Todd Gurley's output on the ground (15 carries for 63 yards), though the latter scored three times in the contest to once again delight his fantasy owners. With the Rams racing to a 22-7 halftime lead, Gurley's workload was limited in the second half, allowing Brown to pick up some extra work in garbage time. There's a good chance that the Rams' Week 8 game against the 3-2-1 Packers proves more competitive, which would translate to a more limited role for Brown while Gurley handles his usual three-down workload. Brown has earned one or fewer carries in three of the Rams' seven games this season.
Brown played two offensive snaps in Thursday's win over the Vikings. Brown was playing a supporting role to Todd Gurley through the first three weeks of the season, but he saw a severe drop-off in offensive reps in Week 4. The lack of production leaves Brown with little fantasy value heading into the second quarter of the season.
