RB - MIA
Former Rams RB Malcolm Brown and the Dolphins have reached an agreement on a contract.
The details of Brown’s contract with the Dolphins are unknown at this time. He rushed for 419 yards and five touchdowns on 101 carries for the Rams in 2020. Brown averaged 4.0 yards per rush across six seasons with the Rams. The undrafted free agent will compete with Myles Gaskins and Salvon Ahmed for carries in the Dolphins backfield.
Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic writes the Rams are "unlikely to bring back" RB Malcolm Brown.
Brown has been a reliable veteran presence over the past couple of season, but LA is now poised to move forward with a Cam Akers-Darrell Henderson backfield. It's unlikely that Brown will have much fantasy value wherever he winds up.
Malcolm Brown rushed three times for 20 yards and caught one pass for negative yardage during the Rams 18-7 win over the Cardinals.
Brown operated as the second running back with Darrell Henderson landing on IR. The Rams have fully committed to Cam Akers, despite his rough outing so it left little room for Brown to produce. After an exciting start to the season, Brown has seen his snap count dwindle as the season wore on.
Malcolm Brown rushed seven times for 27 yards and caught 1-of-3 targets for eight yards during the Rams 9-20 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.
Brown operated behind Darrell Henderson with Cam Akers (ankle) sitting this one out and was out-touched 12-8. Even if Akers doesn't suit up in Week 17, Brown will not be a recommended fantasy option.
Malcolm Brown rushed one time for four yards and hauled in one pass for six yards during the Rams' 20-23 loss to the Jets in Week 15.
Both Brown and Darrell Henderson's role in this offense has been completely diminished with Cam Akers' emergence. His two touches are a step up after seeing zero in Week 14, but Brown should be dropped across all formats. Even if Akers were to go down with a serious injury, Henderson would likely assume lead back duties.
