Fantastic timing by the Rams to wait until AFTER waivers clear to drop this bomb. After originally having his ankle injury labeled as “not long-term” on Tuesday, fantasy managers were blindsided by what projects to be an extended absence for the newest workhorse running back on the block. In an effort to wait out the storm in his absence, the Rams have taken the quantity-over-quality approach by making a slew of signings and elevations in the backfield. Royce Freeman, Myles Gaskin, and Darrell Henderson could all potentially be part of a rotation in the Rams backfield behind Zach Evans, which is probably the worst-case scenario for fantasy football. Among all of those ballcarriers, Evans still stands out as the most intriguing add heading into Week 7, but the fact that LA acted fast in building depth behind him suggests they might not want to rely on Evans in a workhorse role. Any managers with Kyren Williams should hold until further notice.
