Rams RB Tre Mason is ready to make impact in second year
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(8/5/15) Rams running back Tre Mason is ready to take a leap in his second year and become the player he has set out to be, per ESPN.com.
Mason's goals have not deminished even after the Rams took running back Todd Gurley with the 10th-overall pick in this year's draft.
"Tre Mason is still here," Mason said. "Give me the ball. I’m ready to rock. That’s how I feel about the situation."
Mason, though, has a unique opportunity to showcase himself as Gurley remains sidelined because of his recovery from a torn ACL while he was in college.
"It didn’t faze me much," Mason said of the pick. "I’m an individual myself and I have got goals of my own."
Rams coach Jeff Fisher happy with running back corps
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/2/15) If the Rams don't add any player through free agency of the draft, then coach Jeff Fisher appears comfortable with running backs Tre Mason and Zac Stacy leading the charge on first and second down, and with Benny Cunningham handling third-down responsibilities.
"I think that you assume...going into it now, as we finished up last year, the second half of the season, Benny became the third-down back," Fisher said, per ESPN.com. "He’s just really good out of the backfield. He’s probably the better protector of the three. That’s some work that Tre and Zac need and we’ll get that done whenever we can during the offseason. So with Benny being the third-down back, then we’ve got a one-two punch with Tre and Zac.”
Although, it appears Fisher still hopeful Isaiah Pead can also be a factor out of the backfield.
“Yes, obviously Isaiah is coming back as well," Fisher said. "You should see him on the field. So, with him included, yes we do. Tre and Benny and Zac and Isaiah coming back, it’s a good group.”
Rams' Tre Mason does little in finale
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) Rams running back Tre Mason had a tough time against the Seahawks defense Week 17.
Mason rushed 11 times for 28 yards during the contest. He averaged just 2.5 yards per attempt. Mason was a threat in the passing game, picking up 29 yards on three receptions.
After sitting out the first four games of the season, Mason was worked into the rotation during his rookie season. He wound up starting the team's final nine games, finishing with 765 yards and four rushing touchdowns.
RB Tre Mason averages 5.8 yards per carry
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(12/21/14) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason looked way too quick for the Giants in Week 16, averaging 5.8 yards per carry. But he only got 13 carries as St. Louis played from behind all day. Mason finished with 76 yards and a touchdown on the ground and added a 7-yard reception.
It was Mason's second straight game with 13 carries after he averaged 19.8 carries over the previous four games. He has five total touchdowns entering Week 17 at Seattle.
You'll want to stick with Tre Mason
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/18/14) In two games since blowing up for 164 total yards and three touchdowns, Rams running back Tre Mason has a total of 99 yards on 33 carries. Neither performance was good individually, and Week 15 against Arizona was especially bad. Subtract the fumble from his 33 yards, and he scored a grand total of one Fantasy point in standard CBSSports.com leagues.
So why would you consider using him in your championship game with the Rams hosting the Giants in Week 16? For one thing, the matchup is a night-and-day difference. You had to expect Mason to struggle against the Cardinals, who rank sixth against the run, allowing 90.4 yards per game, but would have guessed the Redskins, his Week 14 opponent, rank seventh? It's not a matter of teams choosing to beat them through the air either. They're one of 10 teams that have allowed less than 4 yards per carry.
The Giants, meanwhile, rank 30th against the run, allowing 135.1 yards per game and 4.9 yards per carry. It doesn't mean Mason is a lock for big numbers. The Redskins' Alfred Morris, who most would consider a superior running back, had just 49 yards on 14 carries against the Giants last week. But after splitting carries early on, Mason has become the clear workhorse of the Rams backfield. You don't sit a running back with that role when he has a favorable matchup, especially when he's performed as Mason has this season.
Jamey Eisenberg agrees, naming Mason the CBSSports.com Start of the Week for Week 16.
|It took Tre Mason longer than expected to get on the field in his rookie year in 2014 because of pass protection issues, and he was a healthy scratch for the first four games. But once he got comfortable with the offense he started to show his playmaking ability. He finished the season with 179 carries for 765 yards and four touchdowns and 16 catches for 148 yards and a touchdown. If you project that over 16 games, Mason would have finished with more than 1,300 total yards and seven touchdowns. He might face competition from Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham, who could play on passing downs, but Mason projects as a featured rusher in this offense. He only had four games with double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league last year, but the Rams should give him every chance to succeed. We like him as a No. 2 Fantasy running back worth drafting in Round 4 in all leagues.
