Todd Gurley - RBPosted 10/7/15 8:36am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) practiced without a knee brace Tuesday, Oct. 6. It was the first time he has done that since offseason knee surgery.
Huddle Up: Playing without the brace is another step towards full recovery for Gurley, both physically and mentally. He looked pretty good last week with a brace, so if Gurley is even better without it... look out.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 10/5/15 9:01am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley had 19 carries for 146 yards and two catches for 15 yards in a 24-22 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Gurley was eased back into the mix last week, and this week he was the Rams' top weapon. Expect him to lead any sort of backfield committee in St. Louis going forward.
Alec Ogletree - LBPosted 10/5/15 7:58pm ET
Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams LB Alec Ogletree (ankle) suffered a fracture ankle during the team's Week 4 game. He is scheduled to undergo surgery and may be placed on the Reserve/Designated to Return list.
Huddle Up: Olgetree, the Rams' leading tackler with 42 total stops, will have surgery Tuesday, and the Rams say they will wait until after the procedure to make a decision on his immediate future. If the Rams think Ogletree can return in December, placing him on IR/Designated to Return would make him eligible to return in eight weeks.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/28/15 1:36pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley, who had only six carries for nine yards and one catch for five yards in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers in his first game of the season, said it will take him some time to get back up to speed after recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee last year. Gurley doesn't expect his knee to be very sore this week.
Huddle Up: Gurley won't be on the fantasy radar for the next couple of games until the Rams start to give him more touches. Gurley is a talented player but keep him on the bench right now.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/27/15 9:31pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) made his regular season debut in the Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had six carries for just nine yards while managing one reception for five yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Gurley was used sparingly as expected. It's hard to predict how Gurley will be used going forward, just like it's hard to predict what Jeff Fisher is doing on offense in St. Louis. The team scored 6 points at home against the struggling Steelers' defense. Gurley is probably a couple of weeks away from being on the fantasy radar.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/25/15 6:36pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 25, but is listed as questionable for the Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Gurley has done just about everything he can in showing the team he's ready, and it's now up to the Rams to make the call. Even when does make his debut, though, expect him to be eased into action slowly and thus best belongs on the bench until he shows he's ready for a larger workload.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/24/15 9:11am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) declared himself ready to play in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, although head coach Jeff Fisher was more careful. 'He's had two good days. Had a good day to day in pads and he had a good day at three-quarter speed in practice yesterday,' Fisher said. 'He'll get a day off tomorrow and we'll see how he is Friday.'
Huddle Up: The Rams remain cautious with their first overall pick, and the fact that he's still getting practice days off suggest he won't walk immediately into a 20-carry per game role once he does see game action. Fantasy owners should exercise caution with Gurley as well.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/23/15 2:38pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) has a much better chance of making his season debut in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers than he did last week. If he doesn't return this weekend, it's almost a certainty that he will in Week 4. The Rams continue to monitor his progress and develop a plan for how much he'll play when he returns, and head coach Jeff Fisher said Gurley will be on a pitch count when he comes back.
Huddle Up: Definitely expect slow steps for the 10th-overall pick, and unless they're truly desperate, Gurley's fantasy owners should wait a game or two before starting him to allow the rookie to get up to NFL game speed and settle into the offense.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/22/15 12:28am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) is still considered week-to-week and likely will be a game-time decision for the Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Gurley has been putting in full practices, and his debut definitely will come sooner rather than later. When he does take the field, though, look for the Rams to ease him back into action cautiously -- just as they've handled the first-round pick's recovery process all offseason.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/22/15 9:50am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley's (knee) timetable won't be rushed by the team stagnant running game thus far, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. 'No,' the coach answered emphatically. 'Todd's going to play when he's ready to play. It's a non-factor. I've been saying this since he got here: When he's ready, he's going to play, regardless of what's happening around him. But he is getting closer.'
Huddle Up: Gurley is shaping up to be a game-time decision this weekend and if he does play will be on a "pitch count" according to Fisher.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 9/18/15 6:52pm ET
St. Louis Rams RBs Tre Mason (thigh) and rookie Todd Gurley (knee) both fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and are listed as questionable for Week 2 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: While both backs have fully participated in practices all week after sitting out the opener, Mason remains the better bet to play Sunday given the team's caution in bringing the rookie along. Benny Cunningham, who had 122 total yards on 20 touches in Week 1, also figures to be involved again and still might be the safest fantasy play of the bunch.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 9/17/15 3:48pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (thigh) put in a full practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: If you drafted Mason to use while rookie Todd Gurley rounds into shape, this looks like a week to plug in him as a RB2/flex option.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 9/16/15 8:16am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (hamstring) is feeling better, head coach Jeff Fisher said Tuesday, Sept. 15. More will be known about Mason's status later in the week.
Huddle Up: Benny Cunningham was solid with Mason and Todd Gurley sidelined in Week 1, and now reports are that Gurley has been seeing practice time with the first team. With all the Rams backs getting healthy we're heading towards a muddy situation in St. Louis.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 9/16/15 8:38pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (thigh) put in a full practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Mason is on track to return against Washington. Todd Gurley may play as well but will likely be on a snap count. Mason will be a RB2/Flex play until Gurley is at full health.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/16/15 8:38pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Gurley could play this week but nothing is official. The Rams have been extremely cautious with Gurley, so he might be kept out another week. Even if Gurley plays, he'll be a risky fantasy play in his first game.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/16/15 11:14pm ET
Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Sept. 16, but beat writer Nick Wagoner still thinks Gurley will not play in Week 2 against the Washington Redskins despite the fact he has not yet been ruled out by head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: It's not surprising Gurley won't play in Week 2. The Rams have been taking it slowly with him. Tre Mason will likely start at running back for the Rams on Sunday vs. the Redskins.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 9/16/15 11:14pm ET
Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (hamstring) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Sept. 16, and he said after that he expects make his regular season debut in Week 2 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Mason will start if healthy and Benny Cunningham will return to third-down back duties. Mason is a RB2/Flex play vs. the Redskins.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/15/15 9:53pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) received first-team repetitions Tuesday, Sept. 15. Gurley has not yet been ruled out against the Washington Redskins this week.
Huddle Up: The highly touted rookie may not make his debut this week -- or even the week after that -- but we're getting real close. In the meantime, Benny Cunningham will get another start if Tre Mason's hammy is still acting up.
Brian Quick - WRPosted 9/14/15 11:12pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick was inactive in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks, but head coach Jeff Fisher said Monday, Sept. 14, that it was not 'physically related.' He cited a need for extra players on special teams.
Huddle Up: Quick was pegged by most fantasy analysts as the front-runner to be the Rams' No. 1 WR. That still might happen, but he's off to a disappointing start, and looks like he's going to have make more of an impression on Fisher and the coaching staff in roder to earn some playing time.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 9/11/15 11:07pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason is a 'game-time decision' against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: Even if Mason plays he'll be limited. Benny Cunningham will see an expanded role on Sunday. Neither player is an attractive option against the Seahawks defense.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 9/9/15 6:39pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (thigh) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Barring a late-week turnaround, Mason's status for the opener remains very much in doubt, and Mason's fantasy owners or those desperate for RB help need to conside Benny Cunningham with rookie Todd Gurley definitely out for the Rams.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/8/15 10:05pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) might miss the first three games of the regular season. The team wants to make sure he is fully back from his anterior cruciate ligament injury before he is cleared. The recovery time is often 10 months.
Huddle Up: Adrian Peterson's return in 2012 has set the expectation bar too high when it comes to knee-surgery receoveries, and Gurley needs to be accorded ample time.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 9/8/15 10:13pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (hamstring) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Sept. 8.
Huddle Up: The fantasy owners who handcuffed rookie Todd Gurley with Mason, or just drafted the latter eyeing some early-season starts, are likely going to have to look elsewhere this week for RB help as it looks like Benny Cunningham is in line to open as the Rams' starter Sunday against the Seahawks.
Benny Cunningham - RBPosted 9/7/15 11:18pm ET
With St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (hamstring) likely to be a game-time decision in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks, RB Benny Cunningham could have a much bigger role in the opener game.
Huddle Up: While Mason and rookie first-round pick Todd Gurley, who already has been ruled out of the opener, have attracted all the fantasy attention, Cunningham is in position to be the opening-game starter and should be high on the radar for those who are in need of RB help. Cunningham had 598 total yards and four TDs backing up Mason a year ago.
Benny Cunningham - RBPosted 9/5/15 8:35pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (hamstring) is questionable for Week 1. 'Tre's doing good,' head coach Jeff Fisher said. 'He had two treatment sessions today, and he's doing well. So we'll see how he is during the week.' RB Benny Cunningham is expected to have a larger role whether Mason plays or not.
Huddle Up: It's not looking great for Mason in Week 1. Even if he does play, he'll be limited against a tough Seattle defense. Benny Cunningham is set for an expanded role but again, it's not an attractive matchup.
Todd Gurley - RBPosted 9/5/15 8:35pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) will not play in Week 1, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: It was always a longshot for Gurley to be ready for Week 1. As of last week, he wasn't even doing contact drills in practice yet. The Rams are going to take it slow with Gurley this year. He was over-drafted all summer.
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.
