Kyren Williams set to start for Rams moving forward

Los Angeles Rams running back Kyren Williams is the starter, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Williams locked down the starting job on Sunday by scoring twice and gaining 100 yards from scrimmage on 20 touches. The Rams are reportedly engaged in trade talks centered around Cam Akers after he was a healthy scratch in Week 2, so Williams is set up to be a workhorse for the rest of the season. Their next opponent will be the Cincinnati Bengals next Monday night.

Williams rushed 14 times for 52 yards and a touchdown, and caught 6 passes on 10 targets for 48 yards and another touchdown. His 25.0 FanDuel points were third-most among running backs on Sunday. He also played 76-of-80 running back snaps and was given 24-of-25 running back opportunities in Week 2. The Bengals are No. 16 in FanDuel points allowed per game to opposing running backs so far this season.
