Week 21: vs New England Patriots - $

All RB vs NE

FBG says: Tough matchup. The big question heading into this game is the health of Todd Gurley. With two weeks off the running back will look to get back to his peak regular season form after being benched for most of the second half of the game and had just four carries against the Saints in the NFC Championship. If Gurley is unable to go, C.J. Anderson will likely continue to see significant playing time. Anderson who is nowhere near as elusive as Gurley, still has been efficient behind what is largely considered the best offensive line in football. The Rams may have the best tackle combination in football led by veteran Andrew Whitworth at left tackle and Rob Havenstein who is 6'8'' 340 pounds, this is a line that can create massive holes for either running back. If Gurley is healthy this will play a significant role this week in the game. The Patriots front seven is one of the most improved units this season. After being embarrassed Week 3 against the Lions, the Patriots have allowed just one 100 yard rusher since allowing 149 yards to Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount. In the playoffs so far this year, the unit essentially took Melvin Gordon out of the game holding him to just 15 yards on 9 carries and holding Damien Williams to just 30 yards on 10 carries. What the Patriots have been doing with primarily playing a Dime defense has been remarkable and a big reason for this is the play of Patrick Chung and Kyle Van Noy who have both been playing remarkably well against the run as the defensive line has done a tremendous job in keeping the offensive line from getting to the second level which has allowed the ability for the linebackers to free roam and make the tackle.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 7 vs SF (13 / 65 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec - 7.6 points, $5000)

Brown got a decent amount of rotational work in this game, as the Rams seemed to feel like they had no reason to run Gurley into the ground against an inferior opponent who kept turning the ball over. While he had no flashy plays, Brown was efficient as an inside runner while spelling Gurley.

2018 Week 2 vs ARI (12 / 46 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 6.6 points, $5000)

Brown took lead back duties from Gurley with 2:23 left in the 3rd quarter. On his first third down in the game, handled blitz pickup great, de-cleating a free blitzing ILB so Goff could make the conversion on a big catch-and-run to Kupp. He showed extreme reliability as a pass protecter throughout the game. Because of the Rams lead, he got quite a bit of work to close the game out - even with the Rams staying aggressive and throwing into the 4th quarter. He is a bit of a one-speed runner and is not particularly fast, but understands blocking concepts, has patience, and has enough physicality to run through arm tackles.
