The running back rushed for 134 yards against the Seahawks and is a strong RB2 in all leagues this week.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) Rams tight end Lance Kendricks has developed into more than just a red zone threat. He has at least two catches inside the opponents' 20 or a touchdown in each of his last five games.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Kendricks also is a solid blocker and has helped improve the Rams' running game in the past three weeks.

ST. LOUIS -- Perhaps the dejection in the Rams' locker room came from Kellen Clemens' late fourth-quarter fumble that led to the 28-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday afternoon.
"It's a mistake that can't be made and unfortunately, I made it," Clemens said. The Titans needed one play to take advantage as Chris Johnson bolted 19 yards to break a 21...
Titans -3 at Rams

Unfortunately for the Rams, the rest of the offense wasn’t nearly...
ST. LOUIS -- As it turned out, the Titans were more than just another opponent for the St. Louis Rams, at least for those Rams who once played for Tennessee.

"Basically, he expressed how...
ST. LOUIS -- A week after stuffing the Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch, the St. Louis Rams' defense chased the Titans' Chris Johnson all day.
