Van Jefferson, Catches lone target

Jefferson caught an eight-yard pass during Sunday's 24-16 loss to San Francisco. He played just three offensive snaps.

Analysis: This was just the sixth catch of the season for the rookie and first since Week 2, so while it's nice to see quarterback Jared Goff look Jefferson's way, he's probably still a long shot to be a reliable fantasy asset in the immediate future. Veteran receivers Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds are consistently seeing more playing time, and tight ends Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett also remain active in the passing game. Jefferson's value is probably limited to keeper/dynasty settings at this stage of the season.

Malcolm Brown, Just two rushes in loss

Brown rushed twice for four yards and caught three of four targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 24-16 loss to San Francisco.

Analysis: Brown was primarily utilized in obvious passing situations and on third downs, as his pass protection is clearly valued by head coach Sean McVay. The role will probably enable the veteran back to remain involved in the offense and offer a dash of fantasy value, especially in PPR settings. However, he's clearly behind sophomore Darrell Henderson on the depth chart, and rookie Cam Akers is probably more talented, so Brown's long-term outlook is likely bleak. Additionally, it's definitely important to highlight Henderson has 20 red-zone carries the past four weeks compared to Brown's four.

Cam Akers, Coach speak proves false

Akers played just a single snap during Sunday's 24-16 loss to San Francisco.

Analysis: After head coach Sean McVay suggested the rookie was in line for an increased workload, Akers played a single snap Sunday and didn't touch the football. It was a bit surprising, but Los Angeles only had possession for 8:37 in the first half, and No. 1 back Darrell Henderson rushed just six times. The Rams never had an opportunity to find the offensive rhythm to enable them to turn to Akers. Making matters worse, Henderson impressed again with 14 rushes for 88 yards, and veteran running back Malcolm Brown looks locked into a consistent role as a trusted pass protector. While Akers remains an intriguing long-term fantasy asset, he's also far from a reliable option at this stage of the campaign.

Josh Reynolds, Finally finds pay dirt

Reynolds caught two of his five targets for 45 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-16 loss to San Francisco.

Analysis: The score was Reynolds' first of the season and came with just 3:24 left in the fourth quarter to bring the Rams within one score of the 49ers. The catch was also all the more impressive because the fourth-year receiver fought through pass interference from 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Moseley to haul in the 40-yard deep ball. Still, prospective fantasy managers will want to keep expectations in check. This was just the second touchdown reception over the past two years for Reynolds, and he's still firmly behind Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp on the wide receiver depth chart. Additionally, tight ends Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett are both active in the passing attack and combined for eight targets Sunday.

Tyler Higbee, Shows off with 31-yard grab

Higbee caught three of four targets for 57 yards during Sunday's 24-16 loss to San Francisco.

Analysis: The bulk of Higbee's production came on a 31-yard reception in the third quarter, and he also hauled in a 17-yard pass during the Rams' first drive. This was the fifth-year tight end's best game since scoring three touchdowns in Week 2 against Philadelphia, and while he's probably still a little risky in most fantasy settings, Sunday's showing was definitely a step in the right direction. Just remember head coach Sean McVay and quarterback Jared Goff tend to spread the ball around, and fellow tight end Gerald Everett has seven receptions over the past two weeks and is emerging as another trusted weapon in the Los Angeles passing attack.
