In 2023, LA Rams RB Kyren Williams rushed 228 times for 1,144 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was so good, so proficient at running the football, that he landed among the NFL's Top-3 rushers for the entire 2023 NFL season. But Williams did something that no other Top-5 running back was able to do last season. You see, he did it all in just 12 games.

That's right. He cracked the Top 5, better yet Top 3, rushers in the entirety of professional football, and did so by competing in 30 percent fewer games. That is some jaw-dropping stuff. It's the stuff that is both incredibly impressive, but also plants a seed of concern. First, let's get to the good stuff:

Baldy loves LA Rams RB Kyren Williams, and you will too

When you get online social media analysis from Brian Baldinger, a.k.a. Baldy, as one of the latest episodes of Baldy's Breakdowns, you have hit the cover of Rolling Stone, albeit in the NFL That is due to the fact that Baldy does his best work for the best players in the NFL.

Just check out his quick analysis of Rams RB Kyren Williams in the Tweet below:

Notice how Baldinger grabs the tough gritty plays in the Rams vs. Baltimore Ravens game. Baldy showcases Williams in his best and toughest plays from the line of scrimmage, not necessarily his longest runs from scrimmage. That is what I appreciate Baldy's Breakdown so well. He grabs the little nuances that spells success in the NFL.

Blake Corum is coming to keep Williams upright

The fact that Williams missed five games in 2023 may concern some fans. After all, we saw what happened to the running back room when Williams went down. The team scrambled by signing multiple runners to slide into the rotation, even adding formerly released RB Darrell Henderson Jr. for a shott stint. But nobody could manufacture the ground gains that WIlliams was able to put up.

Rams rookie RB Blake Corum will change all of that. He is a Darrell Henderson Jr. sized running back with a Royce Freeman-like ability to break tackles and drive north-south in tough short-yardage situations.

While every player is out to earn a spot on the 53-man roster and snaps, Blake Corum gets an added bonus by being tasked to share the workload with his teammate, Kyren Williams, specifically to aid in preventing injuries to the Rams featured running back. Of course, nothing stops him from putting up impressive yards on the ground too. This is going to be an exciting NFL season.
