The 49ers are 17th against fantasy running backs, Carson should be a RB2 on the road this week against an opponent that he shredded for 108 yards from scrimmage in Week 13. The Rams are 12th against fantasy running backs, but QB Nick Foles is expected to start, which makes Adams a dicey flex option.

Unrelenting physical style leads to quality Fantasy totals againLAR have not allowed a rush TD to RBs in 3 straight and game flow could hurt him
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Starting at running back for the team leading the NFL in rushes has its perks. Carson has handled 68 carries in four games since returning from a hip injury. The accompanying 344 total yards and three touchdowns make him the RB10 during that stretch. The 49ers, who rank 12th against the run, were the only one of those four opponents to hold him out of the end zone. Yet he should again see a heavy workload as the considerable favorite, so play him with confidence as a top-shelf RB2.After fielding 42 carries in the last two games, Adams settled for seven in Week 14's overtime loss to Dallas while playing two fewer snaps (21) than Darren Sproles. Yet he goes from facing a Cowboys defense yielding 3.6 yards per carry to the Rams and their 5.1 yards allowed per run. He did not forfeit much of Philadelphia's rushing responsibilities; Sproles, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement-who went on the IR with a knee injury-saw one carry apiece last Sunday. That matchup should spawn more dedication to the run, especially if Carson Wentz is sidelined with a back injury. That should mean a return to double-digit handoffs for the rookie. While far from a safe option, he's worth a flex look.
