He ended last week with 76 yards and a touchdown, but if you watched that game, it could've been much more. There were penalties that should've been called, but the good news is that people were able to see Beckham is still very good on national television. The potential downside, however, is that Mayfield seemed to go into that game with a different mindset, and it was one that wasn't going to force the ball to Beckham. This is a good thing in some ways, but it could take away some of the steady targets. Going against Washington's cornerbacks is hardly a daunting task, though the pressure their front seven is bringing to the quarterback has allowed them to look better than they are. The duo of Ronald Darby and Fabian Moreau have stuck to sides, and Beckham plays on both sides of the formation, so he'll see a mixture of these two. We watched DeAndre Hopkins catch 8-of-9 targets for 68 yards and a touchdown against this secondary last week. Beckham may not get back to the elite status we once knew, but he should remain in play as a solid WR2 with upside as long as Mayfield can keep it together.We were told by Sean McVay himself that this would be a timeshare in 2020 and he wasn't lying. Through two games, the touch count is: Brown 32, Akers 18, Henderson 17. We may have lost one part of that timeshare in Week 2 as Akers had to leave with a rib injury. That would certainly help clear things up and make us feel better about both Brown and Henderson, as the Rams running backs have combined to average 33.5 touches per game, which is enough for two running backs to be productive. The Bills run defense isn't anything too intimidating and they were without two starting linebackers last week, though you wouldn't know it by the stat sheet. They have yet to play a running back who's totaled more than seven carries. This is what happens when you play the Jets and Dolphins over the first two weeks. If you look at them last year, they allowed a healthy 4.37 yards per carry, though the 25.6 touches per game they allowed to running backs was the eighth-lowest mark in football. I've brought this stat up before and I think it makes sense to do it again given the Rams willingness to run the ball in the red zone. Under Sean McDermott, the Bills have now allowed 46 rushing touchdowns to running backs over 50 regular season games. That averages out to 14.7 per season. By comparison, there were just five teams who allowed more than that in 2019. If Akers is ruled out, Henderson is my favorite play as a high-end RB3, though Brown is right there in a tier below (low-end RB3). They come with risk, sure, but given the number of touches going around combined with touchdown upside, it's a risk you should be willing to take. Akers is currently questionable for the game, but don't be surprised if he misses at least one week with his rib cartilage injury.

Washington is just 19th against fantasy wide receivers this year, OBJ is a dicey WR2 playing with Baker Mayfield. 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Brown rushed 11 times for 47 yards in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Eagles. Brown fractured his left pinky against the Eagles and underwent surgery on Monday to repair it. Even so, he's expected to suit up. Akers (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Baker and OBJ were finally able to connect in week two and it led to a big day for the talented wideout. OBJ could have had an ever bigger day, but there was no need to keep throwing the ball with the Browns going up big against the Bengals. Moving forward, OBJ is a weekly WR2 that always has the potential of hitting the big play downfield to vault him into WR1 status.While Henderson is going to be a popular play for fantasy managers, and rightfully so, there's a possibility that Brown can also be rolled out as a low-end RB3 option. Both of these RBs are going to see enough work to be useful for fantasy football and people shouldn't be moving off of Brown just yet.
