You'll want to stick with Tre Mason


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2014) 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.


Rams RB Tre Mason has a tough time Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Rams running back Tre Mason had a rough game Week 15 against the Cardinals.

Mason ran the ball 13 times, picking up just 33 yards. Things started horribly for the rookie. On his third carry of the game, Mason lost a fumble. It was Mason's second fumble this season. The Rams offensive line couldn't get much push against Arizona. Mason averaged just 2.5 yards per rush. His longest run went for 10 yards. Mason received one target in the passing game, but failed to come up with the reception.

Mason will look for more Week 16 against the Giants. 


Tre Mason held to 3.3 yards per carry


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason ran 20 times for 66 yards, averaging 3.3 yards per carry, in the Week 14 win at Washington. Mason was targeted twice without a catch.

Although Mason failed to go over 100 yards for the third time in four games, he continues to be featured. The 20 carries were his second-highest total this year.

He'll play the Cardinals on Thursday night.


Tre Mason emerges as a star


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Rams running back Tre Mason has shown glimpses of star potential this season, but finally broke out with a massive three-touchdown game in Week 13 against the Raiders.

Mason rushed for his second 100-yard game in three weeks Sunday, and he did it on just 14 carries. He could have seen more work, but the Rams went up and put the game away quickly, in large part thanks to Mason's work. He scored three times Sunday, including once on a 35-yard pass in the first quarter and again on a career-long 89-yard run in the second quarter.

Mason has been the undisputed No. 1 running back in St. Louis in the second half of the season, and is finally starting to show his Fantasy upside. The rookie has two 100-yard performances in his last three games, and showed off his big-play abilities Sunday.

At this point, Mason is clearly a Fantasy starter, even in the face of a tough matchup against the Redskins in Week 14.  


Rams RB Tre Mason erupts for 164 yards, 3 TDs in laugher


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason enjoyed a field day at the expense of the hapless Raiders on Sunday. He ran 14 times for 117 yards and two touchdowns and caught three of four targets for 47 yards and another score.

Mason took a screen 35 yards to the house on St. Louis' opening possession. He blew past Oakland's defense for an 89-yard score early in the second quarter. That tied the second-longest running play in franchise history, and it made him the fifth player in NFL history to go over 100 yards on four or fewer carries.

Mason capped his day with an 8-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. He's rushed for 292 yards over the past three weeks and is up to four scores this season.

Mason visits the Redskins in Week 14.


Tre Mason goes for 88 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason rushed 16 times for 62 yards (3.9 ypc) and added a 26-yard reception in the Week 12 loss at San Diego. He's averaged 19.5 carries over the past four games.

Mason plays the Raiders in Week 13.


Tre Mason getting enough work to stay relevant


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Rams running back Tre Mason hasn't been overwhelmingly impressive as a rookie, but he has cemented himself as the team's top option, which is just as important for Fantasy purposes.

Mason averaged just 3.9 yards per carry in Week 11, his third straight game below 4 per carry. However, he got so much work that he put up a big game by volume alone, finishing with 113 yards on 29 carries, his first double-digit Fantasy scoring game since Week 7.

The Rams simply aren't trusting anyone else to rush the ball, so Mason is going to be Fantasy relevant by default. He should keep seeing plenty of work, and is hard to consider sitting for Fantasy purposes, given how few backs have as clear a role as Mason does. 


Rams RB Tre Mason rushes for career-high in Sunday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Rams running back Tre Mason has shown some promise in 2014, but his effort Sunday against Denver proved particularly encouraging.

The rookie established a career-high with 113 yards on 29 carries and contributed one catch for one yard. He broke loose for a 15-yard run on the team's second possession of the game and remained consistent throughout with 56 yards in the first half and 57 thereafter.

Mason, who boosted his season rushing total to 383 yards, will try to keep up the good work when the Rams play at San Diego on Week 12.


Rams RB Tre Mason gets the carries, but doesn't score


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Rams running back Tre Mason received the bulk of the carries Week 10.

Mason may have gotten the most work, but he didn't get the team's only rushing score. That went to Benny Cunningham, who managed to plunge in a 3 yard run in the first quarter. Mason was just average when he got the ball, gaining 48 yards on 14 carries. He averaged just 3.4 yards per attempt. Mason did catch four passes for 33 yards, so he was a threat in the passing game. 

Mason will take on the Broncos Week 11. 


Only start Tre Mason if you must


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/6/2014) With notable running backs like Arian Foster, Alfred Morris, Branden Oliver, Ahmad Bradshaw and Shane Vereen on bye in Week 10, you may have no choice but to start Tre Mason at Arizona. But in a perfect world, you'd give him another week to prove he's the Rams' preferred rusher, as he has been two of the last three weeks.

Because he bounced back with a team-high 19 carries in Week 9 after a letdown in Week 8, that would appear to be the case. But coach Jeff Fisher, as he did after Mason's breakthrough Week 7, is doing his best to dismiss the idea, saying Mason is still part of a committee that includes Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham.

If you say that's just coach-speak and I'm being too cautious, you may be right. But let's not forget Mason wasn't so productive on those 19 carries last week, gaining just 65 yards against a tough 49ers run defense. He has an even tougher matchup this week. The Cardinals rank third against the run, allowing 79.6 yards per game, and have given up the fewest Fantasy points per game to running backs.

That's reason enough to sit Mason if you can help it.


Jeff Fisher: RB Tre Mason 'missed a couple holes'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said rookie running back Tre Mason "played pretty well" in the Week 9 win at San Francisco. Mason rushed 19 times for 65 yards (3.4 ypc) and caught one pass for minus-8 yards.

"He missed a couple holes but he ran real hard," Fisher said. "He overcame some things. His ball security’s good, pass protection is good. He needed to get out in the routes. I thought he played pretty well."

Despite Mason's big workload, Fisher said the backfield remains a committee, and Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham will get work moving forward.


Jeff Fisher refuses to call RB Tre Mason the starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason carried 19 times in the Week 9 win at San Francisco, compared to four for Benny Cunningham and zero for Zac Stacy. But coach Jeff Fisher on Monday declined to name Mason the starter or primary option, reports ESPN.com.

Fisher insisted the team hasn't lost faith in Stacy, who's averaged 3.9 yards per carry with one touchdown and two lost fumbles this season.


Tre Mason in; Zac Stacy out?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) Even after rookie Tre Mason ran for 85 yards on 18 carries against Seattle in Week 7, Rams coach Jeff Fisher insisted that Zac Stacy would still have a major role and even boasted that he could get 25 carries in Week 8.

He didn't get 25, of course, but five and did far less with them than Mason did with his seven. So Week 9 at San Francisco, as should have been the case all along, Stacy was nowhere to be found, and Mason was again leading the Rams with 19 carries for 65 yards.

It wasn't an eye-opening performance, but against a defense that entered the day ranked fourth against the run, it was validation enough. Stacy, who has yet to have a carry of more than 16 yards this season, is out, and Mason, who has had at least one carry of more than 16 yards in three of his last four games, is in. And Fantasy Football is all the better for it.

Now let's hope Fisher keeps his mouth shut and doesn't try to confuse us all again.


Tre Mason heads up Rams rushing attack in Week 9 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Rams running back Tre Mason worked as the primary ball carrier Sunday, rushing for 65 yards on 19 carries in his team's 13-10 win over the 49ers in Week 9.

Mason also lost eight yards on his one reception but clearly shouldered the workload Sunday, as backup Benny Cunningham received just four carries. Despite the confidence in the coaching staff, Mason managed a meager 3.4 yards per carry after coming into the game with an average of 5.2 yards on 30 carries. He'll look to bounce back in Week 10 against the Cardinals.


Jeff Fisher fine with running back committee


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher indicated he has no problem with continuing to split carries among running backs Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason. In Sunday's loss at Kansas City, Mason got seven carries, Stacy received five and Cunningham, four.

"When they got their opportunities they all were productive," Fisher said. "The average per carry is about the same. We'll see. We may settle into something this week."

Fisher said the committee approach won't make it harder for his backs to get into a rhythm. St. Louis visits the 49ers in Week 9.


Rams back to running back by committee


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) After rookie Tre Mason appeared to take a leading role Week 7 against Seattle, rushing for 85 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries, the Rams went running back by committee again Week 8 at Kansas City. Mason led the team in carries, but he had only seven. Meanwhile, Zac Stacy got five, and Benny Cunningham got four.

Stacy was once again the weak link, gaining just 17 yards. Though he's been the Rams' leading ball carrier this season, his longest run is only 16 yards. In this game alone, Mason had a run of 14 yards, and Cunningham had a run of 18 yards.

Coach Jeff Fisher said prior to Week 8 that Stacy could get 25 carries against the Chiefs, but clearly, he wasn't effective enough to justify so many. Frankly, he hasn't been effective enough to justify any at this stage of the game, but the Rams need more convincing. Because Mason was again their most effective rusher in Week 8, it's probably just a matter of time.

Of the three, Mason is the one to own right now even if you can't start him just yet. Cunningham has some appeal in deeper PPR leagues. Stacy is probably just a waste of a roster spot.


Rams running backs combine for 76 rushing yards in Week 8 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Rams running backs Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham and Zac Stacy combined for 76 rushing yards and 29 receiving yards during a 34-7 loss Week 8 at Kansas City. Though, none of the three running backs had a touchdown.

Mason had a team-high 32 rushing yards on seven carries, while Cunningham had 27 rushing yards on four carries and Stacy had 17 rushing yards on five carries. Cunningham drew the start and had the first carry.

Stacy led the running backs with 20 receiving yards on three catches. He was targeted four times. Cunningham had one catch for 8 yards, while Mason had one catch for 1 yard.

The Rams are back in action Week 9 at San Francisco.


Tre Mason still an iffy start


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) Even if you don't buy coach Jeff Fisher's assessment that the Rams' running back situation is a "week-to-week thing" and that ousted running back Zac Stacy "could get 25 carries this week," it doesn't change the fact that he said it, and he's the only who really knows anything. 

That concerns me as someone who put in a big bid for Tre Mason in Fantasy this week. When Mason ran for 85 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries against Seattle in Week 7, it wasn't just a breakthrough performance for him. It was also the best individual rushing performance the Rams have had all season. And Stacy is largely to blame for that. His longest run in five games this season was a 16-yarder Week 3 against Dallas. Mason in two games already has two runs longer than that.

The matchup Week 8 at Kansas City isn't a slam dunk. The Chiefs rank in the middle of the pack against the run, but because they have yet to allow a touchdown on the ground, they've allowed the sixth-fewest Fantasy points per game to running backs. It wouldn't be enough to scare me away from Mason if I could trust he has a feature role, but with Fisher getting cute about it, I can't.

Since Mason appears to be the Rams' best rusher, I think he will eventually, but Mason seems like a better stash than start except in an emergency right now.


Taking a look at the waiver wire for running backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list. 


Jeff Fisher: Zac Stacy 'could get 25 carries this week'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the team's running back situation will continue to be a "week-to-week thing," adding Zac Stacy's lack of playing time Sunday wasn't an indicator of things to come. Stacy played one snap and got zero carries in the win over the Seahawks.

"We’ve got three outstanding runners," Fisher said, referring to Stacy, Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason. "And as I mentioned, we think Trey Watts can also help us, so we’re going to use them all. It’ll be a week-to-week thing. Zac could get 25 carries this week. We had some things in early this week. It was working so we decided to stay with ‘Mase.' It’s nothing that Zac has done or hasn’t done. He’s been a little banged up the last couple of weeks, but obviously he’s an outstanding runner as well. We clearly have significant depth there at the position."

Fisher noted Stacy missed practice time the past couple weeks due to calf and ankle injuries.

"The good thing about this is he’ll come back and should be 100 percent this week and just see where it goes," Fisher said.

The Rams visit the Chiefs in Week 8.


Changing of the guard in Rams backfield


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) Though Zac Stacy was active after missing some practice time earlier in the week with an ankle injury, the Rams didn't seem terribly interested in using him in Week 7. And they didn't lean all that much on Benny Cunningham either, at least not as far as the running game was concerned. No, their primary ball carrier against division rival Seattle was Tre Mason, who didn't even debut with the team until Week 6. And he was a revelation in the role, picking up 85 yards on 18 carries, including a 6-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Cunningham was still involved in the passing game. In fact, he was the Rams' leading receiver with 46 yards on five catches, scoring a touchdown on one of them. But he carried the ball only two times for 3 yards.

Stacy, meanwhile, played only one snap and didn't get a single touch. It's possible the Rams were saving him with his ankle at less than 100 percent, but considering he practiced in full Friday, I doubt it. As the team's intended starter at running back, he never ran for more than 71 yards in any of his first five games, so Mason already has him beat.

Maybe you hold on to Stacy if you're the extra cautious type, but Mason looks like the Rams running back to own right now, with Cunningham also having some low-end appeal in points-per-reception leagues.


Tre Mason seizes opportunity in Week 7 victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason got his first start Week 7 and seized the moment, gashing the Seahawks for 85 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. Mason averaged 4.7 yards per carry and broke the Rams' longest run this season, a 28-yarder, on the team's third possession.

Mason made a vicious jump-cut on his 6-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. He was not targeted in the passing game. With the Rams trying to run out the clock, Mason fumbled when he was hit from behind. Officials ruled St. Louis recovered.

Mason likely earned a second straight start Week 8 at Kansas City.


Jeff Fisher: 'No problem' with committee at running back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher indicated he's leaning toward using all three of his running backs moving forward. Asked about a committee approach featuring Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason, Fisher told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "I have no problem with that. Nope."

In Monday's loss to the 49ers, Fisher added, "we were rolling all three of them."

Mason's 24-yard burst up the middle was the team's first run of at least 20 yards this season. "I liked the way he handled his first opportunity and made some explosive plays," Fisher said of the third-round pick, who was active for the first time this season.


Rams RB situation becoming a mess


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) Zac Stacy's Fantasy value took another hit in Week 6 with the emergence of Tre Mason, who was active for the first time against the 49ers. Though the rookie played only about one-third of the snaps Stacy played and just 12 percent of the team's overall, he led the team in rushing, gaining 40 yards on five carries. The first run of his career, a 24-yard scamper in the first quarter, was longer than any of Stacy's 61 this season.

Of course, the Rams running back who saw the most action, playing 51 percent of the team's snaps, was Benny Cunningham, who had a modest showing, rushing seven times for 21 yards and a touchdown and catching two passes for 12 yards. Stacy actually led the Rams in carries with eight, but for only 17 yards.

Hoping to make sense of it? Good luck. The Rams' backfield is becoming a mess on par with the Saints' -- except in this case, you can't be completely sure any of the players are actually good.

I can say that Stacy didn't get a single touch after the 49ers took the lead in the second quarter, so the Rams may not think he's as suited for comeback mode as Cunningham. The problem is they don't figure to be leading many games.

I'm not ready to cut Stacy yet, but he's looking like a sit in Fantasy. Cunningham might be the preferred start, but he's a low-end one at that. Mason, the change-of-pace guy, can remain on waivers for now.


Rookie Tre Mason leads Rams in rushing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Active for the first time this season, Rams rookie running back Tre Mason led the team with 40 yards rushing on just five carries Monday night. Mason averaged 8.0 yards per tote and showed a lot of burst against a staunch 49ers' defense.

He touched the ball on his first snap, taking a screen 12 yards. It was his only target.

Mason figures to be part of the game plan Week 7 when the Rams host the Seahawks.
