Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Malcolm Brown's 21 touches in Week 1 was shocking to me and it was a part of a clear effort by Sean McVay to run the game through the backfield as the team's running backs combined for 39 touches. The Eagles' defense will present more of a challenge on the ground, although Brown should still be considered the leader of the backfield until further notice. If you have to start a Rams' runner, make it Brown, but don't trust him as anything more than a risky RB3/flex play. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We knew it would be a timeshare, and though I said that Brown would have a larger role than most expected, no one guessed he'd lead the team with 21 touches. By comparison, there were just three games last year where Todd Gurley totaled 21 touches. We heard Sean McVay say he wanted to steal pages out of Kyle Shanahan's book, and he did just that in Week 1 as his running backs combined for a massive 39 touches in a win over the Cowboys. The Eagles run defense is going to be a much tougher test. Sure, they allowed two rushing touchdowns to Peyton Barber, but they've now allowed just 3.59 yards per carry since the start of the 2019 season. Running backs have combined to average just 24.6 touches per game against them. That's an issue for a three-headed monster. They've allowed just three running backs to top 66 rushing yards over their last 17 games. Brown did get both of the team's carries inside the five-yard line, so he's the most likely to score a touchdown, and he's also the one who led the team in targets (4). If you're starting one, it's him, though this matchup is a headache for running backs. Consider him a touchdown-reliant RB3.Mattison isn't someone I'd want to play while Cook is at full health, especially in a matchup against a team that didn't allow much on the ground to running backs.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Brown came out of nowhere last week and asserted himself as the lead option in this Los Angeles backfield. He looked explosive, displayed great vision in between the tackles, and he was clearly the superior option on the field. This Eagles defense is a tough matchup, which causes me to manage expectations for Brown this game, but he can still be rolled out as a RB3 with upside if he scores. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Eagles were 16th against fantasy backs, Brown is going to be the flex option early in the season with Cam Akers being more of a RB4.
