Greg Zuerlein - PKPosted 9/17/18 7:31am ET
Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (groin) isn't expected to be placed on the Reserve/Injury list, which indicated he doesn't have a long-term injury.
Huddle Up: If he's out multiple weeks, you'll have to cut him and play the wire the rest of the season.
Greg Zuerlein - PKPosted 9/17/18 5:16pm ET
Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (groin) will miss at least the next several weeks because of his groin injury, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Sam Ficken will take over the kicker job but is not a great fantasy option. Owners may want to stash Zuerlein on their bench if they have room and look for a replacement on the waiver wire.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/16/18 4:17pm ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (cramps) rushed 19 times for 42 yards and three touchdowns in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals, but he left early with cramps.
Huddle Up: Gurley checked out early, but it was likely a precaution that he did not return, as the game was out of hand and there was no sense risking further injury with the game already decided. The Rams battle the Chargers in Week 3.
Greg Zuerlein - PKPosted 9/16/18 4:07pm ET
Los Angeles Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (groin) suffered a groin injury in pregame warmups and he did not kick in the Week 2 game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: With Greg the Leg sidelined, the team elected to go for two-point conversions rather than attempt PATs. He made four field goals last week, so it's a tough and unexpected loss for fantasy owners. If he isn't ready for Week 3 against the Chargers they'll definitely bring someone in.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/16/18 10:42pm ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed for 42 yards on 19 carries and scored three times on Sunday, Sept. 16, against the Arizona Cardinals. Gurley added three catches for 31 yards.
Huddle Up: Gurley's 2.2 YPC was an eyesore, but when it's attached to a three-touchdown afternoon it doesn't much matter. While cramps ended his day prematurely, given the score it's debatable how much more he would've been used anyway. Going forward he's a surefire RB1 in all leagues.
Jared Goff - QBPosted 9/16/18 10:32pm ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 24 of 32 passes for 354 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT during the team's 34-0 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Goff was highly efficient in moving the Rams up and down the field on the hapless Cardinals, but almost all of the touchdowns wound up with Todd Gurley, which was a bummer for Goff owners. Still, seeing the way Goff is already gelling with Brandin Cooks while keeping Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp involved is a very good sign for his fortunes this season. With the Bosa-less Chargers on the docket next week Goff could be in for some big numbers.
Cooper Kupp - WRPosted 9/16/18 11:05pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp registered six receptions for 63 yards in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Kupp made the most of his chances, turning six targets into six receptions. It's tough to produce three viable fantasy wideouts on a single team, but the Rams are proving capable of the feat with Kupp a solid WR3.
Robert Woods - WRPosted 9/16/18 10:59pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods registered six receptions on nine targets for 81 yards during the team's win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Woods saw an identical nine targets but more than doubled his production versus Week 1. Woods isn't the dynamic weapon that Brandin Cooks is, but he has Goff's trust and works as a reliable No. 3 receiver option for fantasy owners.
Brandin Cooks - WRPosted 9/16/18 10:52pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks caught seven passes for 159 yards against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Cooks' 159 receiving yards were his most since Oct. 16, 2016, when he was still with the Saints. It certainly appears as though the Rams are dedicated to featuring him in a way the Pats never did. He's a solid WR2 for now and could play himself into WR1 territory before it's all said and done.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/13/18 4:55pm ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 13.
Huddle Up: Gurley returned to practice after a day off and should receive plenty of touches this week against the Arizona Cardinals. He should be a No. 1 running back in all leagues no matter the opponent.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/12/18 5:59pm ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 12.
Huddle Up: Nothing to see here, as Gurley is perfectly healthy entering the Rams' Week 2 showdown with the Cardinals. As is the case on any given week, he'll be one of the top RB1 options on the board.
Brandin Cooks - WRPosted 9/10/18 10:36pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks racked up five receptions for 87 yards on eight targets in his team debut in Week 1 against the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: Cooks led the receiving corps in yardage, and the targets were almost evenly spread among Cooks, Cooper Kupp (9) and Robert Woods (9). While he was unable to find the end zone, he certainly put up respectable enough numbers for a WR3 in most fantasy formats, especially PPR. The Rams host the Cardinals in Week 2.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/10/18 10:34pm ET
Los Angels Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 20 times for 108 yards in the Week 1 game against the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Sept. 10 and he added three grabs for 39 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Gurley certainly looked the part of early first-round fantasy pick, and any owner who made the miscue of selecting Le'Veon Bell ahead of Gurley likely spent the entire weekend just shaking their head. Gurley will look to carve up the Cardinals in Week 2 at the Coliseum.
Jared Goff - QBPosted 9/10/18 10:14pm ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 17-of-32 passes for 229 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 1 in against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Goff was mistake-free and he was sacked just once, seeing plenty of time behind the offensive line to operate without impunity. He posted a 97.0 quarterback rating during the impressive road win, too. The Rams will host the Cardinals at home in Week 2.
Robert Woods - WRPosted 9/10/18 10:41pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods posted three receptions for 37 yards while tying a team high with nine targets in Week 1 against the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: Woods, Brandin Cooks (8) and Cooper Kupp (9) all shared the wealth as far as targets were concerned, but fantasy owners are likely a little disappointed that Woods was able to absorb just three of the nine balls thrown his way. He'll look to bounce back in Week 2 against the Cardinals.
Cooper Kupp - WRPosted 9/10/18 10:39pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp collected five grabs for 52 yards and a touchdown on nine targets and he ran twice for 16 yards in Week 1 against the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: Kupp and Robert Woods were each targeted a team-high nine times, and Brandin Cooks was targeted eight times. Jared Goff did a good job of feeding all of the receivers rather evenly, and that will certainly make fantasy owners happy. The Rams host the Cardinals in Week 2.
Michael Thomas - WRPosted 9/9/18 1:54pm ET
New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught 16 passes for 180 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1.
Huddle Up: The Saints did a lot of passing during the game, so Thomas was called upon often during the game. He is one of Drew Brees' favorite targets and should continue to be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
Cooper Kupp - WRPosted 9/1/18 9:02pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp's 23 receptions in the red zone last year were tied for the third most in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Coming off a productive rookie year, he should at least provide WR3 value in PPR formats. His popularity in the red zone gives him an even higher ceiling.
Cooper Kupp - WRPosted 8/25/18 12:15pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp will not play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Houston Texans as the team rests its offensive starters.
Huddle Up: Kupp exploded onto the scene with 62 receptions, 869 yards and five touchdowns in his rookie campaign. He is a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option in all PPR leagues heading into 2018. Kupp should again be a productive member of a high-octane Los Angeles offense.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 8/25/18 12:12pm ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley will be held out of the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: The Rams know what their starters can do, especially a stud like Gurley. They'll use the third preseason game to evaluate some of their other players fighting for jobs instead. Gurley will be looking to build upon his amazing 2017 season when he totaled 1,305 rushing yards, 13 touchdowns with 64 receptions, 788 yards and six scores.
Jared Goff - QBPosted 8/25/18 12:06pm ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff will not play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: The Rams are resting almost every one of their starters, but there is no injury to worry about here. Goff will be ready for the regular season opener on Sept. 10 in Oakland. He is a decent QB2 in all leagues using two starting signal callers as well as a solid streaming option for when byes kick.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 8/23/18 12:35pm ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (rest) will not play at all this preseason, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: The Rams don't want to risky anything with their franchise running back, so they'll wait to unleash him until Week 1. Gurley should be one of the first two players selected in fantasy drafts coming off a monster career year.
Jared Goff - QBPosted 8/23/18 4:01pm ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff (rest) is uncertain for the team's next preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Texans, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: This has nothing to do with injury, so owners need not worry about Goff's health entering his third season. The former No. 1 overall draft pick is entering the new campaign with a lot of momentum after taking a huge step forward last year by completing 62.1 percent of his passes for 3,804 yards and 28 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions. He's one of the better value QB1 options out there, leading one of the league's most potent offenses.
Tyler Higbee - TEPosted 8/14/18 7:56am ET
Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee has been a standout in training camp.
Huddle Up: Higbee will have to hold off Gerald Everett, but he's dealing with a shoulder injury. The high-powered Rams offense gives Higbee some luster as a very late-round backup.
Brandin Cooks - WRPosted 8/9/18 9:41am ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks will be used in a variety of positions and move around offensive formations, according to head coach Sean McVay. McVay added that Cooks is a 'rare type player' who possesses a complete skillset.
Huddle Up: Before we get too giddy about Cooks in his new uniform, we need to admit that there is a plethora of weapons on the Rams. Cooks will be competing with Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Todd Gurley and others for Jared Goff's attention. Drafting him as a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 is ideal.
Jared Goff - QBPosted 8/8/18 12:13pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp and QB Jared Goff have connected frequently at training camp and their chemistry is evident. According to CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora, Kupp and Goff 'have something special going on.'
Huddle Up: Kupp was the most targeted Ram in his rookie campaign a year ago. Robert Woods, Brandin Cooks and Todd Gurley will demand their share of targets, but Kupp can lead the team in the category again. View him as a WR3 with more value in PPR formats.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 7/24/18 10:50am ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley reportedly agreed to terms on a four-year extension worth $60 million - including $45 million guaranteed - on Tuesday, July 24.
Huddle Up: This reported deal would reset the market for running backs and would trump the annual average value of what the Pittsburgh Steelers reportedly offered Le'Veon Bell. Gurley was the top fantasy back in football last year and could easily do so again in 2017. This extension will keep him in Los Angeles through the end of the 2023 season.
Brandin Cooks - WRPosted 7/17/18 12:13pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks signed a five-year contract extension Tuesday, July 17. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Cooks, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods comprise an underrated wide receiver corps for the Rams. Unfortunately for Cooks, there may be too many mouths to feed for him to be viewed as more than a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3. He's more the latter in a PPR setup.
Greg Zuerlein - PKPosted 7/10/18 1:37am ET
Los Angeles Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (back) 'could probably go' if he had to suit up for an upcoming game, according to special teams coordinator John Fassel, who added, 'A week after his surgery he was in the training room and he's lived in there ever since that day. So he's had a great offseason with his rehab and his training, so when training camp starts, I would imagine we'll be full speed.'
Huddle Up: As long as he's ready for the start of the season, Zuerlein should be one of the most popular kickers taken in fantasy drafts -- not just for his efficiency and kicking power but also because the Rams figure to have one of the more explosive offenses in football again. Thus, Zuerlein should have plenty of opportunities at racking up points on a weekly basis.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 7/7/18 7:24pm ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley's 343 touches were the third most in the NFL last season, and Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com expects Gurley to remain the 'backbone' of the offense and handle a similar workload in 2018.
Huddle Up: Gurley blossomed as an every-down back in Sean McVay's offense, topping 2,000 total yards and scoring 19 times. He is firmly in the conversation to be the No. 1 overall pick in drafts.
