Shaun Hill - QBPosted 9/18/14 11:01pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis or QB Shaun Hill (thigh) could come down to a game-time decision in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: If you're somehow looking at starting a Rams' QB, it looks like you're going to have to check in with the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury & Weather report Sunday morning.
Stedman Bailey - WRPosted 9/17/14 3:45pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Stedman Bailey is expected to practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and play Week 3 after having his four-game suspension lifted. Bailey's role may be limited during the game.
Huddle Up: Bailey could step in for Tavon Austin, who's a question mark with a knee sprain, but don't expect an abundance of looks in a spread-it-around St. Louis passing game which has already targeted 8 different WRs/TEs at least 3 times apiece during the first 2 games.
Tavon Austin - WRPosted 9/15/14 10:22am ET
St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) sustained a knee injury during the team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Austin will undergo more tests Monday, Sept. 15.
Huddle Up: More injury issues for the Rams, and another reason for the talented yet enigmatic Austin to fail to live up to his potential.
Jeff Fisher - HCPosted 9/15/14 10:22am ET
St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) will return to the starting role when healthy, according to Rams coach Jeff Fisher. QB Austin Davis has filled in for the past two weeks.
Huddle Up: Davis led the Rams to a win in Week 2, and there's no word yet on when Hill return so Davis may have another opportunity to change Fisher's mind.
Tavon Austin - WRPosted 9/15/14 9:08pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) is dealing with a mild knee sprain but has a chance to play Week 3, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: The second-year wideout is off to a slow pass-catching start with only 4 targets, 3 catches and 34 yards through 2 games, and is going to have to get healthy and show something before he belongs on the fantasy radar.
Shaun Hill - QBPosted 9/12/14 12:10am ET
St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 11 because of a thigh injury, but offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said Hill might not have to practice this week in order to be able to play Sunday, Sept. 14, because of his experience and knowledge of the offense.
Huddle Up: Chances are you're not counting on a Rams' QB in Week 2, but just in case, you're likely going to have to stay on top of updates through Sunday morning.
Chris Long - DEPosted 9/10/14 4:48pm ET
The St. Louis Rams will place DE Chris Long (ankle) on the short-term Reserve/Injured List Wednesday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: IDP league owners take note as Rams' team's second-leading sacker in 2013 will miss at least the next 6 games.
Brian Quick - WRPosted 9/8/14 11:01am ET
St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick had seven catches for 99 yards in Week 1.
Huddle Up: The Rams' passing game is in shambles, as they were down to their third-string quarterback in the second half of their Week 1 loss to the Vikings. Quick found a way to emerge from the muck and offers at least some fantasy upside going forward; the key will be producing consistently rather than showing up every once in a while.
Shaun Hill - QBPosted 9/8/14 11:01am ET
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis completed 16 of 23 passes for 192 yards and an interception in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings, coming on for the injured QB Shaun Hill (quadriceps).
Huddle Up: Hill, starting after the season-ending preseason injury to Sam Bradford, was ineffective in one half of action before leaving with the injury. Don't be surprised if the Rams start quarterback shopping on Monday.
Shaun Hill - QBPosted 9/8/14 3:30pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (quadriceps) may not play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, Sept. 14, as he has a strained quadriceps.
Huddle Up: Austin Davis would likely get the start against Tampa Bay, with Case Keenum being a longshot. Either way, the Rams offense is in some trouble both this week and going forward.
Shaun Hill - QBPosted 9/8/14 10:14pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (quadriceps) was removed from the game in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings due to a strained left quadriceps and not because of his poor performance, head coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Monday, Sept. 8. Hill went 8-for-13 for 81 yards and an interception before departing late in the first quarter. Hill did not return to the game because it was decided that he could only make his injury worse by playing. Fisher said that if Hill is healthy, there is no quarterback controversy.
Huddle Up: Neither Hill or second-year backup Austin Davis (16-of-23, 192 yards, interception) could get the Rams into the end zone, and the challenge won't get any easier this week against what's sure to be an agitated Buccaneer defense in Tampa. You're going to have to stay on top of injury reports if you're thinking about using Hill next Sunday.
Zac Stacy - RBPosted 9/5/14 3:21pm ET
St. Louis Rams general manager Les Snead said he expects the team to ride the 'hot hand' any given week at running back, according to a source. As a result, RB Benny Cunningham could cut into RB Zac Stacy's workload immediately in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings. Stacy had 250 carries in just 12 starts last year and was among the league leaders in carries per game. Cunningham had just 47 carries last year, but he impressed the team in training camp and the preseason.
Huddle Up: Stacy logged a healthy 67 percent of the Rams' RB carries in 2013, but that's not looking like it'll be the case this year. If you remember, Cunningham actually got the start in the Rams' third preseason game, so Stacy owners should be tempering their expectations accordingly.
Michael Sam - DLPosted 8/30/14 5:31pm ET
The St. Louis Rams released DE Michael Sam.
Huddle Up: Sam played well this preseason, recording two sacks and two quarterback hurries. However, he faced long odds because the Rams are so deep along their defensive line. Sam will have a better chance of making another team that needs help on the defensive front.
Benny Cunningham - RBPosted 8/28/14 3:59pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham has been the team's best running back during the preseason and could push RB Zac Stacy for playing time this season.
Huddle Up: In fantasy drafts held over the last 2 weeks, Stacy is the 14th RB coming off the board, while Cunningham is way down at 71, but the gap is getting narrower by the day, especially after the latter got the surprise start in Game 3 of the preseason. Definitely swoop up Cunningham if you're down to the RB handcuff/flier stage in your draft.
Shaun Hill - QBPosted 8/26/14 2:34pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill will remain the starter, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Recent speculation placed the Rams the center of trade talks for a new quarterback, but Fisher said the team is committed to Hill.
Huddle Up: Trade rumors persist -- lately involving Philly backup Mark Sanchez -- but even if the Rams stick with Hill, at least he's a fantasy upgrade over Kellen Clemens, who started 9 games and threw only 8 TD passes after Sam Bradford went down last season.
Benny Cunningham - RBPosted 8/24/14 1:28pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy did not start in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, because the team wanted to see what RB Benny Cunningham would do with the first-team offense, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher said the team knows what Stacy can do with the starting offense.
Huddle Up: Cunningham, a 2013 undrafted free agent out of Middle Tennessee, had 5 carries for 32 yards in the contest to continue his solid preseason (15-80, TD) and he looks to have the edge over third-round pick Tre Mason (37-110) for the No. 2 job behind Stacy.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 8/24/14 3:27pm ET
There was growing concern early Sunday afternoon that St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has in fact torn an ACL and will be lost for the season. Further information is expected at coach Jeff Fisher's press conference later this afternoon.
Huddle Up: This latest turn sounds anything but good, and the fantasy focus is shifting to backup Shaun Hill or speculation that the Rams could trade for the likes of Kirk Cousins, Mike Glennon or Mark Sanchez. Definitely stay tuned ...
Shaun Hill - QBPosted 8/24/14 4:35pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is out for the season after an MRI revealed a torn left anterior cruciate ligament. Barring a trade, Shaun Hill is expected to open the season as the Rams' starting QB.
Huddle Up: The 34-year-old Hill has played in 37 career games, compiling a 13-13 record as a starter and throwing for 41 TDs and 23 interceptions. His last start, however, came back in 2010 with the Lions. Hill is a step down from Bradford, but is an upgrade over Kellen Clemens, who started 9 games for the Rams last season, and the team will likely rely on Zac Stacy and the running game more than originally thought.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 8/23/14 10:06pm ET
Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) suffered a knee injury in the third preseason game and will not return to the game.
Huddle Up: Early reports say initial tests revealed Bradford did not damage the left ACL that he had surgery on but he'll have an MRI on Sunday. The Rams are obviously holding their breath. Even if Bradford dodges this bullet he can't be counted on to start 16 games for the Rams this season.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 8/23/14 10:28pm ET
Updating previous reports, St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) will undergo an MRI, because initial tests on his injured knee were inconclusive, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Initial reports had Bradford dodging a bullet but the Rams have said they honestly don't know his status. The MRI tomorrow will tell us Bradford's future. It would be another crushing blow for Bradford and the Rams' offense if he's lost for the season.
Isaiah Pead - RBPosted 8/21/14 6:52pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Isaiah Pead (knee) has cleared waivers and was placed on Reserve/Injured Thursday, Aug. 2.
Huddle Up: It'll be another lost season for the 2012 2nd-round pick who has 75 career rushing yards, but the Rams haven't given up on him quite yet.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 8/21/14 10:28pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt may sit out of the team's preseason game against the Cleveland Browns Saturday, Aug. 23, with a shoulder injury. Britt did practice this week, however.
Huddle Up: The former Titan has played sparingly this preseason with 1 catch for 5 yards on 2 targets so far, but given the unsettled and inexperienced WR corps in St. Louis, he remains in the mix to start or at least see significant playing time.
Brian Quick - WRPosted 8/18/14 9:42am ET
St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens has been surpassed on the depth chart by WRs Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey and Brian Quick, and Givens may be a bubble in terms of final roster cuts.
Huddle Up: Bailey will miss the first four games of the season due to suspension, so Quick may find himself an integral part of the Rams' receiver rotation for at least the early portion of the season. Add that to a healthy Sam Bradford and Quick should at least be on your fantasy radar.
Isaiah Pead - RBPosted 8/17/14 7:51pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Isaiah Pead is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He'll undergo surgery this week.
Huddle Up: Rugged break for the 2012 2nd-round pick who has been unable to make a mark in the NFL with 75 rushing yards in 2 seasons. That leaves third-round pick Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham as the backups behind Zac Stacy.
Isaiah Pead - RBPosted 8/16/14 8:03pm ET
Updating earlier reports, St. Louis Rams RB Isaiah Pead (knee) is feared to have torn his left anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: Pead was fighting for a roster spot and now it looks like he could miss the season with a knee injury. Pead was the 50th overall pick in the 2012 draft.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 8/9/14 7:43pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) will play in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.
Huddle Up: Bradford is entering a make or break year in St. Louis. He finally has some playmakers around him and could reward fantasy owners, especially if Kenny Britt can regain his old form. Bradford is currently on the QB2 radar with an ADP of Round 14.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 8/5/14 11:51pm ET
St. Louis Ram QB Sam Bradford (knee) is unlikely to play in the team's preseason opener Friday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: A big year for Bradford is off to an inauspicious start, leaving Shaun Hill the likely starter Friday night vs. the Saints.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 7/30/14 4:53pm ET
St. Louis Ram RB Tre Mason has received some snaps with the first- team, but RB Zac Stacy is receiving a majority of the first-string work.
Huddle Up: The Rams certainly have high hopes for the third-round pick, but Stacy was a rookie revelation last season and it would be no shock to see him get 70 percent of the Rams' RB touches this season.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 7/25/14 9:48am ET
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) will be a full participant at the start of training camp, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher said Bradford was unlikely to play in the first preseason game, but not because of the injury.
Huddle Up: The Rams are banking on Bradford to stay healthy this season, so don't be surprised if they encase him in bubble wrap and proceed with extreme caution this preseason.
Tavon Austin - WRPosted 6/24/14 10:26am ET
St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer hinted the team will expand WR Tavon Austin's role this season. 'Moving him around to a lot of different spots,' Schottenheimer said. 'You'll see us hand him the ball, do some different things. He's playing so much faster just because he knows what we're doing. He has the system down cold.'
Huddle Up: That's the role many envisioned for Austin out of the gate, but it never materialized during his rookie season. With a year of NFL experience under his belt, Austin may now be ready for the larger, Percy Harvin-like multipurpose workload--and with it, of course, the accompanying jump in fantasy value.
