Surprise: Rams RB Isaiah Pead is inactive for tonight's game

As expected, Rams running back Daryl Richardson will play tonight despite a foot injury. But what's completely unexpected is that Isaiah Pead @iPead, Richardson's backup and the player who filled in for him and got 13 touches last week against the Cowboys, is inactive.

Fantasy Analysis:

No reason, whether it's related to an injury or disciplinary action, has yet been given for Pead's absence. It means Benny Cunningham will be Richardson's direct backup tonight. I think Richardson is still in the flex range, but this definitely helps his value. He should see 15 or so touches at home against a 49ers defense that ranks 29th in run defense.
