Unlike Deebo Samuel’s turn for the worst, Kyren Williams landing on IR has been a possibility since the Rams clarified that he would be more likely to miss multiple weeks versus the original one-game diagnosis. Now that he’s there, the Rams will turn to a true backfield by committee, led primarily by rookie RB Zach Evans and recently-promoted system veteran Darrell Henderson. The backfield could realistically shape up to be a complete mess, as there’s a history with Sean McVay and not following through in game with what he says is the plan going into it (see: the entirety of the Cam Akers saga). However, for the time being, your best bet in LA’s backfield for this week looks to be Evans. If he doesn’t look like he can handle a true workload, there’s a chance the situation could devolve into a three or four-pronged attack.
