Fantasy owners find little value in Rams win over 49ers

The Rams came away with a win, but fantasy owners are left sifting through just 193 yards of total offense in Week 9.

The St. Louis Rams offense didn't do much to contribute toward their 13-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. However, the Rams defense had a remarkable eight sacks, and held the 49ers for most of the afternoon. The Rams mustered ten unanswered points through the final 31 minutes of the game. It was a slow, grueling showcase from both teams, and it didn't translate well for fantasy owners. We're here to break down a few individual performances.

Austin Davis: There aren't many players worth mentioning for the Rams this week, and that's primarily due to Davis' performance. Davis threw for just 105 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He'll barely be worth owning in two-quarterback leagues moving forward.

Kenny Britt: Britt scored the team's only touchdown of the day with less than two minutes remaining in the first half. The Rams and 49ers were tied with 10 points until a field goal clinched the win in the final quarter. Britt was targeted four times and was Davis' second-most targeted player on the day, which goes to show how much the offense struggled. With Brian Quick out for the season, Britt is worth monitoring as he stands to see a increase in targets moving forward. Until the Rams show improvement at quarterback, it's difficult to recommend Britt as more than a WR4.

Tre Mason: Mason finished with 19 carries for 65 yards. He lost 8 yards on one reception. Mason is still the most promising running back on the Rams roster. The 49ers simply had no reason to worry about the passing game with Davis playing poorly. The volume is there for Mason, though, and he looks to be the team's primary ball carrier moving forward. Benny Cunningham saw just four carries, and Zac Stacy saw zero carries on one snap. Mason is worth rostering in all formats and is within arm's reach of RB2 status on any given week.
