Not exactly the news fantasy managers were hoping or expecting to hear on the heels of Williams’ best rushing day as a pro. The good news is that the Rams have made it no mystery that the second-year back would miss the game next weekend, allowing ample time to comb the waiver wire for a quick streaming replacement while he’s out. The other good news is that the injury isn’t considered long-term. With backup Ronnie Rivers also dealing with a PCL sprain, the focus will turn to rookie 5th-rounder Zach Evans in the LA backfield to shoulder the load against Pittsburgh. The Rams have been a pass-first offense this season and will continue to be as long as Stafford is healthy, but Evans should step into a role with enough volume to be considered as a potential flex or RB3 play.
