Mason is an undersized back (5 feet 8, 207 pounds) who doesn't run with power. However, he has success running the ball inside due to his vision and quickness (4.15 20-yard shuttle at the 2014 NFL combine). Tre shows patience and very good acceleration when he sees a small hole starting to open. Once through the first line of contact, he has solid leg drive to push for more yards. His 4.50 40 speed is league average for his position. In 2013 at Auburn University, he ran for 1,816 yards and 23 TDs on 317 carries. His skill set as a receiver is an untapped commodity as he caught only 19 balls for 249 yards in his two collegiate seasons. He has low mileage on his body and questionable pass protection skills. He should be a productive player to start 2015, but he won't see full-time carries once Todd Gurley returns to action. In 2014 with the Rams, Tre had seven games with at least 15 touches. He registered two 100-yard rushing performances and peaked in Week 13 with a 164-yard, two-score outing versus the Raiders. He finished the year with 195 touches in 12 games (16 per game) and five TDs. Mason is going to be a great complement to Gurley when this offense gets rolling. Early in the year, while Gurley is still recovering, Mason should see most of the action on first and second downs with Benny Cunningham seeing most of the action in passing situations. The key to Tre's value once Gurley returns is how well he develops as a pass protector. Mason should get about 18 touches per game over the first eight weeks, with that number dropping to about 10 over the second half of the year if he can't handle the passing downs. This works out to about 225 touches, including 20 catches, for about 1,100 yards from scrimmage and 6-8 scores. Mason is a back-end RB2 who will have declining value late in the year.

9.08 Team Davis - Starting RB in the 9th, I'll take it. At least he is for now. I think the Rams ease Gurley in and that means play time and fantasy points for Mason (at least for the first half of the season). (Comments Added Tue Aug 4 1:25:29 a.m. ET 2015)
