Tavon Austin - WRPosted 5/1/16 11:08pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin is expected to have his fifth-year option exercised, but the team hopes to sign him to a long-term extension.
Huddle Up: Austin has yet to live up to his eighth-overall pick status, but did have his most productive season yet a year ago with 104 touches, 907 yards from scrimmage and nine TDs.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 4/29/16 3:49pm ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles is on the trade block, and the Rams are willing to listen to offers for QB Case Keenum as well.
Huddle Up: No surprise here, but the Rams likely will at least keep one to help mentor and/or serve as a veteran fall-back option behind Jared Goff.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 4/19/16 10:05am ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum signed his first-round restricted free-agent tender Monday, April 18. Keenum could still be traded.
Huddle Up: Shockingly, no other team wanted to give up a first round pick to acquire Keenum. He should be ready to caddy for whichever rookie quarterback the Rams traded up to select first overall.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 4/14/16 9:45am ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Tre Mason failed to appear in court in Broward County, Fla., Monday, April 11, and an arrest warrant has been issued. He was scheduled to be arraigned for a March 5 arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana, reckless driving, failure to register a motor vehicle and resisting arrest. The night of his arrest he was subdued with a stun gun.
Huddle Up: Looks like the charges are stacking up against Mason. At this juncture even if he avoids serious legal trouble he's likely to be facing some sort of punishment from the league--enough to jeopardize what little fantasy value he was clinging to as Todd Gurley's caddy.
Stedman Bailey - WRPosted 4/14/16 9:45am ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Stedman Bailey (head) posted a video of him running routes Tuesday, April 12. Bailey hopes to resume his NFL career after spending more than a month in intensive care after two gunshot wounds to his head.
Huddle Up: Bailey's most recent step in his efforts to return is a heartwarming story, but he's a fringe receiver on a run-first team so fantasy owners have no need to pay particularly close attention at this point.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 4/14/16 3:38pm ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum could have interest from the Denver Broncos now that the Rams have traded up and acquired the first overall pick in the draft.
Huddle Up: It's a somewhat-logical fit being that Keenum spent his first two seasons playing for coach Gary Kubiak with the Texans, but the Rams are still going to want to have a veteran QB on the roster no matter who they pick at No. 1, and that still would seem to favor Keenum over Nick Foles at this point unless the Broncos or another team come in with a trade offer too good to pass up.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 4/10/16 3:31pm ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles could be released before the start of training camp, and he will definitely be released before the regular season starts, according to a source.
Huddle Up: It looks the Foles Era will have lasted all of 11 games for the Rams, who if they release the QB, will be left with only Case Keenum and 2015 third-round pick Sean Mannion at the position. That means expect a high-round pick to be used on a QB in the upcoming draft.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 3/28/16 11:55am ET
Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Rams) signed a one-year, $3.6 million deal with the Green Bay Packers Monday, March 28.
Huddle Up: The Packers' offense has been in need of a pass-catching tight end for a couple years now; it's not out of the realm of possibility that Cook can provide Aaron Rodgers with such a target and turn in a solid fantasy season in the process.
Stedman Bailey - WRPosted 3/26/16 12:28am ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Stedman Bailey (head) has been working out and is being evaluated to see if he can continue the physical-rehabilitation program that would eventually allow him to return to the NFL, head coach Jeff Fisher said recently.
Huddle Up: We're wishing nothing but the best for Bailey, and it will be remarkable story if he even comes close to getting back on an NFL field.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 3/22/16 10:23am ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum will be the team's starting quarterback in 2016, according to general manager Les Snead.
Huddle Up: If you're looking for evidence that the Rams will trade up to get a quarterback in the 2016 draft, the above statement provides it.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 3/15/16 8:50pm ET
Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Rams) visited the Green Bay Packers on Tuesday, March 15, according to a source.
Huddle Up: It's rare for the Pack to sign outside free-agent help, but Cook could be an intriguing add and complement to Richard Rodgers at the TE position.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 3/6/16 7:39pm ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Tre Mason was arrested in Florida on Saturday, March 5, on suspicion of possession of marijuana, reckless driving, failure to register a motor vehicle and resisting arrest, according to a Broward County Clerk of Courts police report.
Huddle Up: Not exactly a positive off-season development for a backup playing at a position that's proven to be expendable in recent seasons. Something to monitor for those who own -- or will own -- Rams starter Todd Gurley.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 2/23/16 3:27pm ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles could be released this offseason, but the Rams would likely have to pay him still. He is due $8.75 million in 2016 with $6 million already guaranteed, including another $1.75 million guaranteed by mid-March.
Huddle Up: Things continue to trend in the wrong direction for Foles, who has thrown for 20 TDs and 20 interceptions since his 27-TD, two-interception season of 2013.
Stedman Bailey - WRPosted 2/11/16 9:05am ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Stedman Bailey (head) posted on social media that he has been moving around in the hospital, as he recovers from two gunshot wounds to the head. He intends to resume his NFL career, but indicated doctors feel otherwise. 'Since that incident, doctors have told me that they don'ít think I'll be able to make a return to the NFL,' Bailey said Tuesday, Feb. 9. 'When somebody tells me that they don't think I can do something, you know I'll do everything that I can to prove them wrong.'
Huddle Up: Don't count on Bailey fantasy-wise, but we wish him nothing but the best as he attempts to return to the NFL.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 2/8/16 9:05am ET
Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles has no chance of being reacquired by the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: The Eagles moved on from Foles once before, and the change in coaching staff obviously didn't rekindle any sort of love affair.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 2/7/16 12:31pm ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley was named the 2015 Offensive Rookie of the Year on Saturday, Feb. 6.
Huddle Up: After finishing third in the league with 1,106 rushing yards while playing 13 games, Gurley lived up to his massive first-year expectations, and he'll be one of the first RBs off the board in re-draft leagues this summer.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 2/5/16 7:18pm ET
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley said all is well with his foot Friday, Feb. 5, and he's doing off-season training in Los Angeles.
Huddle Up: The rookie missed the season finale against the 49ers after compiling 1,294 total yards in 13 games, and will be a top-five pick in fantasy drafts next summer.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/5/16 9:12am ET
St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum enters the offseason as the starting quarterback, head coach Jeff Fisher said Monday, Jan. 4. He said QB Nick Foles will get a chance to compete, and the team will also evaluate outside options.
Huddle Up: If Case Keenum enters the offseason as your starter, you're looking for a quarterback in the offseason. Heading into 2016 with Keenum as the starter would all but eliminate all St. Louis receivers from serious fantasy consideration.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 1/3/16 10:31pm ET
Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (toe) was held out of the Week 17 game against the San Francisco 49ers due to a mild case of turf toe, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: The Rams held out Gurley in the season finale but he showed why he was one of the top running back prospects in recent years with an impressive rookie season. Gurley will be a sure-fire first round fantasy draft pick in 2016.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 1/1/16 9:11am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (foot) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Gurley has yet to practice this week. HC Jeff Fisher said Gurley doesn't have to practice to play, but he would be very questionable if he doesn't get in at least a limited practice in on Friday. The Rams added Malcolm Brown off the practice squad this week, suggesting they are concerned about Gurley's availability. Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham would man the backfield if Gurley sits.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 1/1/16 10:26pm ET
Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (foot) did not practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as doubtful for the Week 17 game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Tre Mason will start Sunday against the 49ers. Mason only averaged 2.6 YPC in his two starts earlier this year but he'll be a Flex option with a favorable matchup versus San Francisco.
Tavon Austin - WRPosted 12/18/15 12:15am ET
St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin caught three passes for 41 yards and a TD and added 32 yards and a TD on the ground Thursday, Dec. 17 in a 31-23 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Austin had been quiet, tallying one TD over his previous six games after scoring six in his first seven outings, but he going on the first possession catching a 17-yard pass from Case Keenum and then scoring on a 21-yard reverse in the third quarter -- his fourth rushing score and ninth overall this season.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 12/18/15 9:12am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley carried the ball 21 times for 48 yards and a score and caught two passes for 31 yards in a 31-23 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 15, becoming the first Rams rookie reach 1,000 rushing yards since Jerome Bettis.
Huddle Up: While Gurley has not been nearly as dazzling of late he has more than lived up to expectations since being the first first-round running back in a couple seasons. Look for the Rams to build their offense around him and continue to showcase him, making him an elite fantasy back going forward.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 12/13/15 11:20pm ET
St. Louis Rams Todd Gurley (knee) left the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions after banging his knee, he said Sunday, Dec. 13. The injury is not considered serious.
Huddle Up: Gurley broke out of his slump and had a huge game against the Lions at the perfect time for fantasy owners. Assuming he's healthy, Gurley will be an RB1 for the second week of fantasy playoffs.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 12/11/15 6:27pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 11, and is listed as probable for the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Most fantasy teams fooling with the Rams' QBs are more than likely on the outside looking in this postseason, but just in case ...
Stedman Bailey - WRPosted 12/8/15 7:42pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Stedman Bailey (head) may not play again this year after being shot in the head twice last month. Head coach Jeff Fisher said Bailey continues to make progress in his recovery from surgery. 'Are you asking is there a potential that he doesn't return to play? Yes, there is that potential,' Fisher said. 'We don't know. It's just going to take some time. From a health standpoint, there's a chance that he doesn't play. However, based on what he's done over the last 10 days, he may surprise everybody.'
Huddle Up: Bailey reportedly has made good progress but still has a long ways to go and the Huddle staff extends its well wishes and hopes for a full recovery and a return to the field.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 12/6/15 9:21pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley carried nine times for a team-best 41 yards in the Week 13 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He did not have any receptions or targets.
Huddle Up: The Rams were trailing in this game but there's no excuse for Gurley to be a non-factor. He's the Rams most feared offensive player and needs to be a bigger part of the offensive gameplan. That will probably be another coaching staff's concern next season.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 12/4/15 4:01pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley has been held in check lately and ran for just 19 yards on nine carries in Week 12, but offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti said they want to get Gurley more touches this weekend in order to ignite the running game. Gurley had a huge second half in the first matchup against the Arizona Cardinals, but Cardinals S Tyrann Mathieu said they let up a bit in the second half. Gurley's last rush of at least 20 yards was on Nov. 1, but he continues to say that he hasn't hit a 'rookie wall.' One thing that could help the ground game this weekend is the expected return of OT Rob Havenstein, who has missed the last four games with an injury.
Huddle Up: There are legit concerns about Gurley as he's failed to rush for 100 yards in four consecutive games after a run of four straight from Week 4-8. Not coincidentally, the Rams have lost each of those last four games. In two of those last four contests, though, Gurley has had 15 and 10 touches, respectively, so an expect a full dose of the rookie Sunday as the Rams try to salvage their season.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 12/3/15 8:06pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles will start in Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher also said QB Case Keenum will serve as Foles' backup if he clears the league's concussion protocol. Even though Foles will start this week, Fisher said Keenum remains the starting quarterback.
Huddle Up: Obviously something to note if you're somehow stuck relying on either of the Rams' QBs, but otherwise pay little heed as the St. Louis passing game has stunk it up regardless of who's throwing the incompletions.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 11/30/15 11:37pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum is still being evaluated for a concussion but is likely to be on the practice field in some capacity Wednesday, Dec. 2, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: Keenum, who threw for 136 yards and a TD in his Week 11 start in Baltimore before sitting out Sunday, will have some extra days to clear the cobwebs, but it really doesn't matter a whole lot fantasy-wise as the St. Louis passing game has been a fantasy wasteland for several seasons now.
