The Rams' official website expects Tre Mason to "still play a significant role" in 2015, and believes it's "more probable" Mason starts Week 1 than Todd Gurley.
Writer Myles Simmons believes Gurley will be brought along slowly, and reminds that coach Jeff Fisher "almost always likes to be conservative with rookies." This is true, but the fact that Gurley is avoiding the PUP list to begin camp — and therefore the season — suggests an early-season return, and a big role along with it. Even if he makes a few early-season starts, Mason is best regarded as an RB3/handcuff. Jul 28 - 7:12 PM

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason has slimmed down to between 195 and 200 pounds.

Mason weighed 207 at his Combine in 2014, with forty times of 4.44 and 4.50. He's cut weight to add speed and burst even though he showed plenty of both during a promising rookie campaign. Regardless of weight, the Rams will have confidence in Mason as their feature back anytime Todd Gurley (ACL) sits. Gurley's timeline is unknown right now.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner confirms Tre Mason "looks to be entrenched" as the starting running back.

Mason didn't play for the first six weeks of his rookie year due to a lack of experience in pass protection. Once the Rams turned him loose, he showed plenty of big-play spark (six carries of 20+ yards) and an ability to handle heavy workloads (18.1 touches/game over the final nine weeks). Benny Cunningham and Zac Stacy will be mere insurance policies behind Mason in 2015.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Rams coach Jeff Fisher says Tre Mason sat on the bench for the first four games of 2014 because he needed to "learn how to play without the football."

He wasn't asked to do much pass protection at Auburn, so it's understandable why Mason would need a few games to get acclimated. Mason was a stud once he began seeing regular carries, averaging 70.7 rushing yards per game over his last seven contests. If Mason stays healthy, he should be a safe bet for 250-plus carries as the Rams' no-doubt top back.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed for 28 yards on 11 carries in the Rams' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks, adding three catches for 29 yards.

His impressive rookie season ends with 765 yards and four touchdowns on 179 carries (4.27 YPC) to go along with a 16-148-1 receiving line. The 75th pick in May’s draft, Mason started the season as the No. 4 back with Zac Stacy as the starter. Mason played just 55 snaps the first eight weeks before taking over as the starter in Week 9. Aside from Jeremy Hill, Mason was probably the most impressive rookie running back. He has plenty of big-play ability, but remains a work in progress in the pass game. Mason should enter 2015 atop the depth chart. The Rams will remain a run-first offense under coach Jeff Fisher and OC Brian Schottenheimer. That’ll make Mason a solid RB2 with upside.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed 13 times for 76 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Giants.

Mason predictably cut like butter through a Giants run defense that has been atrocious ever since MLB Jon Beason went down. Unfortunately for owners, the Rams defense did not show up and they found themselves behind 27-13 early in the third quarter. So Mason, who hardly plays in the pass game, found himself on the sideline watching Benny Cunningham. The Rams end another disappointing season at Seattle in Week 17.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed 13 times for 33 yards in the Rams' Week 15 loss to the Cardinals, also losing a fumble.

He was held without a catch on one target in the passing game. More than once, Mason was inches away from busting a big run, but the Cardinals' sound defense kept wrapping him up before he could break free. His fumble was soft, and directly led to the Cardinals' first of four field goals. It's still baffling Mason received only 13 carries in a game that was a slugfest from the opening whistle. Mason will remain on the RB2 radar for an appetizing Week 16 matchup with the Giants.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed 20 times for 66 yards in the Rams' Week 14 win over the Redskins.

Those chasing last week's points were sorely disappointed. Mason didn't catch either of his two targets and was bottled up by the Redskins all afternoon. He continues to dominate touches in the Rams' backfield. Mason will be a mid-to-low RB2 at home on Thursday night against the Cardinals.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed 14 times for 117 yards and two touchdowns, and caught 3-of-4 targets for 47 yards and an additional TD in the Rams' Week 13 blowout win over the Raiders.

Mason put St. Louis ahead on the game's opening drive, scoring a 35-yard touchdown on a perfectly executed screen pass. He got in again on an 89-yard scoring run early in the second quarter, outrunning the entirety of Oakland's defense. Mason's third TD was good from eight yards out in the fourth quarter. The Rams gave Zac Stacy more carries (7) than usual due to the game's lopsided (52-0) score, but Mason is entrenched as St. Louis' feature back. He'll be an upside RB2 when St. Louis takes on the Redskins next.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed for 62 yards on 16 carries in the Rams' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

Mason added a 26-yard catch. He continues to dominate touches in the Rams' backfield, providing at least one explosive play per game. Mason's big run in this one was a 21-yard scamper. The St. Louis offensive line struggled a bit, however, while the Rams also battled the refs and penalties. Mason will be a solid RB2 option against the Raiders in Week 13, but we'd prefer to see more goal-line looks.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed for 113 yards on 29 carries in the Rams' Week 11 win over the Broncos.

Mason added a one-yard catch. He was impressive as a runner, picking up chunk gains against a Denver defense that entered the game allowing zero 100-yard rushers and just 10 runs of 10-plus yards on the year. Mason is locked into the Rams' lead-back job and now gets two favorable matchups (at SD, vs. OAK) after a tough schedule the previous month. Mason will be a solid RB2 down the stretch and into the fantasy playoffs.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed for 48 yards on 14 carries in the Rams' Week 10 loss to the Cardinals.

Mason added 33 yards on four catches, leading the Rams' "committee" with 18 touches compared to Benny Cunningham's six and Zac Stacy's goose egg. Cunningham, however, was the one who got the goal-line carry in the first quarter for the three-yard score. Mason looked really good against one of the league's elite run defenses. He's obviously the back to own in St. Louis despite coach Jeff Fisher's weekly committee talks. Mason gets the Broncos next.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Coach Jeff Fisher said the Rams will continue to use a committee approach at running back.

Give it up. It's the same tune coach has been singing every Monday. And it's crystal clear that Tre Mason is the far superior talent in the Rams' backfield. Mason handled 19 of the 23 running-back carries against San Francisco, while Benny Cunningham played third downs and Zac Stacy rode the bench. However, Fisher insists Mason missed some holes and continues to say Stacy will remain a big part of the offense. Look for Mason to get most of the work Week 10 vs. Arizona.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed 19 times for 65 yards in the Rams' shocking Week 9 win over the 49ers.

The stat line is not impressive, but the workload was. Mason received 19 of the 23 running-back carries while dominating the early-down snaps. He even saw some work on third down, making a nice block on a third-down conversion in the first quarter. The Rams have apparently realized Mason gives them the best chance to win now and in the future. He should get the majority of the work going forward, and will be an interesting RB2 the rest of the season.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed for 32 yards on seven carries in the Rams' 34-7, Week 8 blowout loss to the Chiefs, adding a one-yard catch.

Benny Cunningham got the start. Mason was second into the game, and Zac Stacy was third in line. Mason and Stacy each received eight touches, with Cunningham netting five total looks. This is picture-perfect definition of a running back by committee, and one we're going to avoid until further notice. None of the three backs could get into a rhythm as they rotated series. OC Brian Schottenheimer has proven to be as inept a play-caller as there is in the league. The Rams travel to San Francisco in Week 9.
