Remember when Ryan Torain was a fantasy sleeper under coach Mike Shanahan in Denver?
The talented but injury-prone running back had one great half against the Browns as a rookie before blowing out his knee and was lost for the season. Well, he’s back under Shanahan (albeit in a Redskins uniform) and seeing some carries against the Rams.
Torain, who was signed from the practice squad earlier in the week, appears to have already passed Keliand Williams on the depth chart. Williams doesn’t have a carry to this point, while Torain has four for 45 yards.
Despite the fact that he has been brittle, Torain, not Williams, now appears to be the back to stash in deeper leagues.
