Rams | Isaiah Pead has attention of OC

St. Louis Rams RB Isaiah Pead continues to get opportunities to work with the first-team offense in practice, and he will likely see time with the first unit in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17, against the Green Bay Packers. However, a fumble last week against the Cleveland Browns did not help him. "I think Isaiah's done some amazing things in training camp," offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said Friday, Aug. 16. "Obviously he was disappointed last week in the fumble. We talked about that with him. We said, 'Hey, don't let one play take away all the great things you've done.'"

Fantasy Tip: Pead remains behind Daryl Richardson for the No. 1 tailback job, although the OC stated there is plenty of time left in the preseason for that to change. Still, Pead should be targeted around Rounds 12 through 14 on draft day as a late-round flier, while Richardson is targeted in the area of Rounds 7 through 8.
