Todd Gurley and Malcolm Brown, Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers
Todd Gurley is doubtful with a quad injury, which means that Malcolm Brown is taking over but he’s in a tough matchup as the Niners have not allowed a running back to score via rushing or receiving. Some of the other backs that they’ve stuffed are Joe Mixon, James Conner, and while Nick Chubb got 99 totals yards, much of them were inconsequential.
Brown has had his touches cut back over the last three games, though he’s certainly no worse than an underused Gurley. This offense is a shade of what it was last year and will need to change it up if they’re going to get any success against San Francisco.
