Tre Mason - RBPosted 8/30/15 11:57pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (hamstring) suffered a mild hamstring strain during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29. He is not expected to play in the final preseason game.
Huddle Up: Mason has had a slow preseason with only 24 yards on nine carries, but he's being counted on as the team's lead back with rookie Todd Gurley not expected to be sufficiently healed from his knee injury last season at Georgia. We'll monitor the reports coming out of the Gateway City over the next two weeks.
Brian Quick - WRPosted 8/25/15 8:13pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) will play Saturday, Aug. 29, versus the Indianapolis Colts after fully practicing Tuesday, Aug. 25, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: Great news for the wideout, who's certainly a late-round sleeper candidate with his current ADP of 189 -- 64th among WRs.
Brian Quick - WRPosted 8/24/15 11:03pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) has been cleared to practice with contact this week, and he might even be able to play in the team's next preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Quick was off to a strong start before injury ended his 2014 season after seven games, and he might be flying under the radar late in your fantasy drafts.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 8/24/15 11:03pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) will still sit out the entire preseason even though he has been cleared to practice, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: Even if the first-round pick is able to play early in September, expect Tre Mason to shoulder most of the early load as it's still only been eight months since Gurley's injury late last season at Georgia. He remains, though, an extra-attractive pick in keeper and dynasty leagues.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 8/11/15 11:42pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason seems more and more likely to open the 2015 season as the unrivalled starter in the backfield for the regular-season opener Sunday, Sept. 13, against the Seattle Seahawks. RB Todd Gurley (knee) said Tuesday, Aug. 11, he doesn't know if he'll be cleared in time.
Huddle Up: In 12 games, Mason totaled 913 yards from scrimmage and scored five TDs as a rookie last season to finish 24th among fantasy RBs, and at his current 10th-round (10-team league) ADP of 96, he represents a decent value at 31 among all RBs. Even when Gurley does make his debut, Mason should still get a decent amount of work as the Rams will be unlikely to overload a rookie coming off knee surgery. At the very least in any case, Mason will be one of more valuable handcuff options.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 8/10/15 11:59pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) is doing some jogging at training camp Monday, Aug. 10, and looks normal. Gurley must now focus on strengthening his quadriceps muscles and all the muscles around his knee as the season approaches. It's still unclear if he'll be able to start the regular season on the field.
Huddle Up: While the Rams are unsure about the first-round pick, fantasy GMs are banking on a big season from the rookie whose 38.07 current ADP places him 13th among all RBs. He's unlikely to play at all this preseason, so there are going to be some anxious fantasy owners come the second Sunday in September.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 8/8/15 10:05pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley and RB Tre Mason will be part of a rotation this season, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. 'Our intention is to have a rotation,' Fisher said. 'Even if Todd is 100%, I still want to have the rotation with Tre, because Tre is special. I think that one-two combination is going to be great.'
Huddle Up: The Rams are going to easy Gurley back onto action. An elite talent, Gurley will be a fantasy stud in 2016. However, his fourth round ADP is a bit unrealistic right now. On the other hand, getting Mason in Round 8 is good value.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 8/7/15 9:39am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (hamstring) was held out of practice with a tight hamstring Thursday, Aug. 6.
Huddle Up: Hamstring tweaks at this point in training camp are common so this shouldn't be a concern. On the other hand, any additional work Todd Gurley might get with the first team would be of significant benefit to the rookie and expedite his trip to the feature back role in St. Louis.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 8/7/15 5:39pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) is coming along slowly from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, and head coach Jeff Fisher said it's unlikely that Gurley plays in the preseason. Fisher said Gurley already has a grasp of the offense and has praised him for his talent. Fisher expects Gurley and RB Tre Mason to rotate in the regular season.
Huddle Up: The first-round pick avoided the preseason PUP list, but it looks like fantasy GMs are going to have draft the rookie without seeing him suit up in any games. He's currently going in the fourth round, on average, in re-draft leagues with an ADP of 37.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 8/7/15 9:15pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles signed a two-year extension with the team Friday, Aug. 7. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Rams are going all in on Foles. He's now locked up through 2017. Foles will earn just under $14 million a year. It's a bit of a risk for the Rams but this is also a franchise in dire need of stability at the quarterback position.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 7/28/15 4:41pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) passed his conditioning test Tuesday, July 28. He will start training camp on the active roster.
Huddle Up: Very encouraging news for the 10th overall pick and those who already have swooped him up in early fantasy drafts. The Rams are no doubt still planning on taking it easy with the RB, but let's see what he can do -- and how he looks -- in camp and early in the preseason.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 7/23/15 11:45pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason will get first crack at the starting running back position until rookie RB Todd Gurley (knee) is healthy enough to start.
Huddle Up: Mason was a fantasy find last season, averaging 10.11 fantasy points per game -- second among rookie RBs -- but much like 2013 rookie Zac Stacy, Mason will give way to Gurley, the 10th overall pick, once he's healthy. If Gurley, though, were to begin the season the PUP list, Mason will be a decent plug-in for the first six games.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 7/21/15 8:08pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) is expected to be placed on the Non-Football Injury list when training camp opens. This was the team's plan, and he can be removed from it at any time.
Huddle Up: Nothing unexpected here -- if you've paying any sort of attention -- with the 10th overall pick, who wasn't injured until last November, meaning he'll likely need some extra time, possibly including a few regular-season games, to recover and get ready for his rookie season. Stay tuned ...
Brian Quick - WRPosted 7/12/15 10:40am ET
St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) is making good progress in his recovery from shoulder surgery and was able to participate in individual drills during offseason workouts. Quick may be able to participate in team drills at some point during training camp and could be ready for Week 1 if he does not suffer any setbacks.
Huddle Up: Ringing endorsements like "may be able to participate" and "at some point" and "if he does not suffer any setbacks" don't exactly set the toes to tappin'--especially when we're talking about a receiver in the run-heavy Rams offense that features a new quarterback. Keep Quick on the sleeper/late-round flier list for the time being.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 7/2/15 10:09am ET
St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles' command of the huddle is something that has been missing from the quarterback position in recent years, according to TE Jared Cook. 'Hopefully, he can make all of us better,' Cook said. 'This is something we've needed the past few years -- somebody to fill the mold, step in, grab the ram by the horns and say, 'Let's go, guys! This is our time!''
Huddle Up: Foles wasn't a fit for Chip Kelly in Philly, but he could give the Rams just what they need at quarterback--namely someone who can stick around for 16 games. The Rams are expected to be run-heavy, but they have some talented receivers and there is certainly some upside to Foles as a backup fantasy option.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 6/27/15 12:42am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley said he is scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews in a few weeks to have his surgically repaired knee examined.
Huddle Up: That meeting likely will go a long ways in determining how much the 10th-overall pick will be able to do in training camp, the preseason and likely the first month or so of the regular season. Let's all stay tuned ...
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 6/20/15 9:47am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley's (knee) timetable is still up in the air as he continues to rehabilitate from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher said Gurley has been doing well but could start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list if necessary. Fisher added that if Gurley does not go on the PUP list, he could play sooner than people think.
Huddle Up: Thank you for that Patriot-like injury update, Coach. So apparently Gurley is somewhere between the PUP list (which, if he starts the regular season on the PUP list, means he'll miss a healthy chunk of his rookie campaign) and the vague "sooner than people think". At this point you need to look at Gurley as a dynasty investment with tremendous upside, because you simply can't bank on anything from him this season.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 6/16/15 2:02pm ET
The St. Louis Rams are looking to lock up QB Nick Foles to a long-term contract. The two sides have had initial talks, and they're expected to ramp up leading up to the season.
Huddle Up: Foles, acquired earlier this offseason in a trade with the Eagles, is entering the final year of his rookie deal and the Rams -- surprisingly -- are thinking long-term three months before the QB even takes his first meaningful snap. Foles' 2013 season (27 TDs, 2 interceptions) in Philly was an eye-opener, but last season (13 TDs, 10 picks) was a marked step back, and you'd like to think that the franchise would be more cautious in judging a potential franchise QB after five seasons of Sam Bradford.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 6/13/15 12:09am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley signed a contract with the team Friday, June 12. Terms of the contract were not immediately disclosed.
Huddle Up: Now that the 10th overall pick has got that off his plate, he can fully focus on his rehab and getting back on the field as soon as possible. For the time being, though, his status for the regular-season opener remains very much in doubt.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 6/7/15 12:50am ET
St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles was praised by WR Kenny Britt and TE Jared Cook for his performance during OTAs. 'We love him,' Britt said Thursday, June 4. 'Great deep ball, he puts it on the money every time. He can throw every pass in the book.'
Huddle Up: Receivers are supposed to be effusive in their praise of their quarterback--especially if they want to see the ball come their way more frequently.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 6/4/15 7:56pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) still has a lot of progress to make before he's able to practice, but he did limited work on the side during organized team activities Thursday, June 4. It has already been speculated that Gurley could begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: No surprise here with the 10th-overall pick suffering the late-season ACL tear last November. The real question, though, likely will be how much Gurley can do during training camp. Stay tuned ...
Zac Stacy - RBPosted 5/2/15 8:17pm ET
Former St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy has been traded to the New York Jets in exchange for the Jets' 224 overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Stacy went from Rams starter to Tre Mason's backup to asking for a trade after St. Louis spent the 10th overall pick on Todd Gurley. He'll join an equally crowded backfield in New York, where he'll need to carve out carries to regain any fantasy relevance.
Zac Stacy - RBPosted 5/1/15 1:28pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy has asked the team for a trade or to be released after the team selected RB Todd Gurley in the first round of the NFL Draft, according to a source.
Huddle Up: After a strong rookie season (1,114 yards, 8 TDs) in 2013, Stacy lost his starting spot and his fantasy relevance to Tre Mason last season, and now another SEC back -- this one the 10th overall pick in the draft -- is set to take his place atop the Rams' backfield pecking order. Clearly, Stacy's best chance for touches isn't going to be in St. Louis.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 4/30/15 9:45pm ET
Georgia RB Todd Gurley was selected 10th overall by the St. Louis Rams in the 2015 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 30.
Huddle Up: Gurley, who's recovering from his late-season ACL tear, found a great NFL fit with coach Jeff Fisher and the run-heavy Rams, who made the former Georgia standout the first RB selected in the first round in the last three drafts. It may take a while for Gurley to round into top shape and bounce back from the knee injury, but when he does, Tre Mason will quickly fade into a reserve role.
Lance Kendricks - TEPosted 4/7/15 1:58pm ET
St. Louis Rams TE Lance Kendricks took a slightly smaller offer to remain with the Rams rather than join the Atlanta Falcons during the offseason. Kendricks cited his closer relationship with tight ends coach Rob Boras and promises of an expanded role in the passing game as his reasons for staying.
Huddle Up: Kendricks has been solid but never has quite lived up to his second-round promise, averaging 32 catches and 347 yards with 13 total TDs in four seasons in St. Louis. Last season, he had five TD grabs but hit career lows with 27 receptions and 259 yards as fellow TE Jared Cook led the team with 52 catches, meaning the latter certainly remains the Rams' fantasy TE you want.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 4/5/15 6:41pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt is expected to produce more in the passing game next season, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. 'I can kind of share the same issue Kenny does and that's we think he can be better. I think he can do better. He thinks he can be better. He thinks he can be more productive. He's looking forward to the offensive changes. I think yeah, we should see a lot more out of Kenny this year,' Fisher said.
Huddle Up: Britt actually hit a career high and finished second among St. Louis pass-catchers with 48 receptions in a season that saw the team without injured starting QB Sam Bradford for the entire year. Those 48 grabs resulted in 748 yards and three TDs, and one primary key will be staying healthy as Britt has played a full 16 games only twice in his six pro seasons.
Benny Cunningham - RBPosted 4/3/15 5:15pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham will continue to be the third-down back in 2015 with Tre Mason starting and Zac Stacy likely serving as the backup.
Huddle Up: Cunningham reeled in 45 passes to finish third on the team and seventh among all league RBs last season, and his designated role most certainly cuts into Mason's fantasy value, particularly in PPR leagues.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 3/31/15 11:08am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) considered quitting football after he suffered his second torn anterior cruciate ligament but was talked out of the idea by former college coach Josh Heupel. Heupel said Bradford is one of the most competitive players he has coached and that Bradford wants to come back and prove himself.
Huddle Up: It's understandable that a second torn ACL might drive someone from the game. Chip Kelly has to be happy Bradford reconsidered.
Brian Quick - WRPosted 3/27/15 10:09pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) is making progress in recovering from a torn rotator cuff and separated shoulder he suffered last October. Head coach Jeff Fisher has described Quick's injuries as significant and has not disclosed any timetable in regards to Quick's return. Fisher did say that Quick is coming along after a difficult time during the early stages of rehabilitation.
Huddle Up: Quick only has 54 career receptions in three seasons but hit career highs across the board with a 25-375-3 line in only seven games this past season. He's penciled in as the team's No. 3 wideout for now, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Rams draft a WR.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/20/15 5:43pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles said he didn't know the Philadelphia Eagles were looking to trade him, despite rumors swirling about their intentions, and the first time he learned about the move was the moment Eagles head coach Chip Kelly called him to say Foles had been dealt to the Rams.
Huddle Up: Foles regressed in third season before being injured and now heads west to join an inferior pass-catching cast in St. Louis, so for the time being, expect nothing more than a QB2 season at best from the fourth-year player.
