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. Nov 23 - 7:45 PM

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.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer said all of his running backs will "have roles for us," and he'll continue to treat it as a week-to-week situation.

"I think that’s kind of good for us," Schottenheimer said. "For a defense not to know who they’ve got to prepare for. To know that at any moment it might be a different guy out there." Schottenheimer isn't fooling anyone. Anybody with working eyeballs can see Tre Mason is the Rams' most talented runner. If the Rams want to put the ball in Zac Stacy or Benny Cunningham's hands, they're playing to the defense's advantage. We're not -- and more importantly, defensive coordinators aren't -- buying Schottenheimer's mind trick. Mason's the guy.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Coach Jeff Fisher said "it'll be a week-to-week thing" at running back for the Rams.

"Zac [Stacy] could get 25 carries this week," Fisher continued. "We had some things in early this week. It was working so we decided to stay with [Tre Mason]. It’s nothing that Zac has done or hasn’t done." Fisher clearly hates fantasy football. He's also never been a coach who favors a committee approach in the backfield. Most weeks, it's going to either be Mason or Stacy. And beat writer Nick Wagoner expects Mason to get the first look Week 8 against the Chiefs.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason led Rams running backs by playing on 27-of-51 snaps in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

Benny Cunningham played 19 snaps and Zac Stacy got one. It's clear that Mason has surged to the front of the pile here as the most talented natural runner and is a must-add, but there are major concerns -- most notably in the form of game flow. Mason is a zero in the pass game, which we know is a red flag when a team gets behind. See Andre Williams, Alfred Morris and even Marshawn Lynch for evidence of that. The Rams next five games are at KC, at SF, at ARZ, vs. DEN, at SD.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed for 85 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in the Rams' 28-26, Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

After shining last Monday night on nine snaps, Mason was handed the reins against Seattle, out-touching Benny Cunningham 18-7, while Zac Stacy rode the bench, playing one snap and not registering a touch. It sure looks like a changing of the guard. After picking up 24 yards on his first NFL carry last week, Mason ripped off a 28-yarder Sunday. He found the end zone from six yards out in the first quarter. The Rams are going to ride the "hot hand," and Mason has it. Coach Jeff Fisher likes to ride one back. Mason needs to be owned in all formats.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Making his NFL debut, Rams rookie RB Tre Mason rushed for 40 yards on five carries in St. Louis' Week 6 loss to San Francisco on Monday night, adding one catch for 12 yards.

Mason had been a healthy scratch each of the first four games of the season. He entered the game in the first quarter, taking the place of Trey Watts as the No. 3 back behind Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham. Mason turned his first NFL touch into a 12-yard gain in the red zone. His first carry went for 27 yards and would have likely gone for a touchdown if Brian Quick hadn't gotten in the way downfield. Mason showed that it's clear he has the most talent as a runner in the Rams' backfield. Stacy and Cunningham are plodders in the Shonn Greene mold and haven't showed anything to keep Mason off the field. Mason is worth a look in 12- and 14-team leagues. This is the same time Stacy entered the fantasy picture last season.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Rams RB Tre Mason remains a healthy scratch for Week 5 against the Eagles.

The Rams hinted that they'd like to get Mason more involved during their Week 4 bye. It didn't happen, another disappointing turn of events for the third-round rookie. The rest of the Rams inactives: QB Case Keenum, CB Trumaine Johnson, CB Brandon McGee, OL Barrett Jones, WR Chris Givens and S Maurice Alexander.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Rams declared RB Tre Mason, CB Trumaine Johnson, OL Barrett Jones, QB Case Keenum, S Maurice Alexander, TE Alex Bayer, and DE Ethan Westbrooks inactive for Week 1 versus the Vikings.

Mason doesn't play special teams and is the No. 5 running back behind Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham, Chase Reynolds, and Trey Watts. Johnson has a sprained MCL. Keenum should eventually pass Austin Davis for No. 2 duties.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed 10 times for 29 yards in Saturday's preseason game, adding two catches for seven yards.

The highlights were an 18-yard run where Mason got to the outside, and a nice downfield block for QB Austin Davis in the third quarter. A distant third on the depth chart behind Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham, Mason has 37 rushes for 110 yards (2.97 YPC) and zero touchdowns this preseason. Mason's Dynasty-league future is bright, but he's not looking terribly likely to make a re-draft impact.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Following Saturday's preseason game, coach Jeff Fisher said Tre Mason "needs to keep working" on pass protection.

Working as the third-string back, Mason didn't recognize a blitz from Sam Barrington and got Shaun Hill sacked. On the very next possession, he failed to pick up blitzing Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and got Hill sacked again. It's not a surprise, as Mason was rarely even asked to pass protect at Auburn. He's not a threat to Zac Stacy and may not even pass up Benny Cunningham this season.
