Rams | Jared Goff has a long way to go

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 11:18:40 -0700

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff is "nowhere near being ready to start Week 1," analyst Steve Wyche said on NFL Network. "He's only had offseason workout practices, but he's swimming in it. Training camp is vital for him. I spoke to one team official that said they are looking forward to seeing him in pads and preseason games because his ability to improvise is some of his strengths. But do not be surprised - I know the expectation is for him to start Week 1 - but don't be shocked if Case Keenum is the starter."

Fantasy Tip: This story is noteworthy, but it's not the end of the world because he hasn't even gone into his first training camp yet. That being said, he's not a good option in single-year leagues to begin with. He's an early dynasty league pick, but he doesn't have many weapons to throw to. Keenum isn't worth drafting in fantasy.

Rams | Case Keenum remains starter for now

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 16:58:24 -0700

Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum will enter training camp as the starting quarterback, with QB Jared Goff assuming the backup position, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably just lip service from the Rams coaching staff. Goff is expected to start after L.A. mortgaged their future to take him first overall. Whoever starts for the Rams will have a dismal wide receiver corps to throw to and should be viewed as low-end fantasy backup this year in redraft leagues.

Rams | Two Rams QBs up for grabs

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 11:42:33 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: One of the two could wind up starting to open the season, and Keenum figures to be ahead of Foles. Jared Goff has a chance to start if the team feels he's ready. Goff has the most fantasy value, but it's as a low-end QB2. His value is more prevalent in dynasty leagues. The other two don't have much fantasy promise.

Rams | Case Keenum signs tender

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 11:13:23 -0700

Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum signed his first-round restricted free-agent tender Monday, April 18. Keenum could still be traded.

Fantasy Tip: Time will tell if Keenum stays to compete with whomever the Rams draft. Traded or not traded, he's not starting fantasy quarterback material and should not be drafted as such.

Broncos | Case Keenum an option in Denver?

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 07:29:06 -0700

Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum could have interest from the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: The Rams are likely to take a quarterback with the first pick, but Keenum still has the chance to start for them. He doesn't have a lot to work with on offense, and he's pretty limited in fantasy purposes. The Rams present his best chance to start, but he's merely depth as a fantasy backup.

Rams | HC has confidence in Case Keenum

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 20:15:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum can win games for the team, head coach Jeff Fisher said Tuesday, March 22. "I feel good with Case," Fisher said. Keenum is expected to compete with QB Nick Foles for the starting job in training camp and into the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum would be considered a low-end QB2 if he hangs onto the starting job into the regular season. It is possible the team also looks at the quarterback position in the draft and adds another competitor to the mix. Stay tuned.

Rams | Case Keenum will start

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 08:19:12 -0700

Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum will be the team's starting quarterback in 2016, according to general manager Les Snead.

Fantasy Tip: He'll be a QB2 depth option in two-QB leagues.

Rams | Case Keenum tendered

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 12:25:02 -0800

Los Angeles Rams restricted free-agent QB Case Keenum received a first-round tender from the Rams Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: The Rams didn't want the Broncos to come calling on Keenum, who is expected to be the starting quarterback in Los Angeles next season. Assuming Keenum remains with and starts for the Rams, he's a backup fantasy quarterback.

Rams | LA treating Case Keenum as the starter

Fri, 04 Mar 2016 13:57:28 -0800

Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum says his coaches are treating him as the starter, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Rams seem to be strangely infatuated with Keenum, who has completed 56.7% of his passes and boasts a 5:3 touchdown-to-interception ratio in 16 career games. Los Angeles has been linked to a number of potential free-agent quarterbacks and should strongly consider taking one in the draft as well. In the event Keenum begins 2016 as the Rams' starter, he should be left on waivers in all but the deepest of leagues.

Rams | Case Keenum could receive tender

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 12:51:55 -0800

Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum could be given a first or second-round tender, according to ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner. In doing so, the Rams would get a valuable draft pick if they don't want to match another team that wants to sign him.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum was named the starting quarterback by head coach Jeff Fisher shortly after the regular season ended. He has had an up-and-down career with the Houston Texans and Rams, but he's a solid backup fantasy quarterback and bye-week replacement starter.

Rams | Brass sold on Case Keenum

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 10:05:12 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum appears to have head coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead sold on him.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum appears the front runner to start in 2016, but he has very little to offer in fantasy outside of a midrate QB2.

Rams | Might RG3 be good fit for L.A.?

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 22:54:36 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is likely to be released until they can find a trade partner. The Los Angeles Rams depth chart has QBs Case Keenum, Nick Foles and Sean Mannion, so Griffin could potentially be an upgrade for the team.

Fantasy Tip: It's all speculation as to what will happen with RG3, but it would be ironic if he lands with the Rams, a team which benefitted tremendously when it swapped picks with the Redskins so they could land Griffin. Stay tuned.

Rams | Case Keenum staying put

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 18:26:44 -0800

Los Angeles Rams impending restricted free-agent QB Case Keenum is going to be back with the team in 2016, according to general manager Les Snead. "We're not going to let him go somewhere else," Snead said.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum and Nick Foles will compete for the starting job next season, and the Rams haven't ruled out drafting a quarterback. Even if he does land the starting job, Keenum would be a low-end QB2.

Rams | Case Keenum enters offseason as starter

Mon, 04 Jan 2016 17:30:37 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum and Foles were each unimpressive in their stints as the starting signal caller, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Rams look outside of the organization or to the draft for an immediate upgrade.

Rams | Case Keenum nearly perfect

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 21:39:49 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum compiled a 158.0 quarterback rating in a 31-23 win over the St. Louis Rams in Week 15, completing 14 of his 17 passes for 243 yards and a pair of scores.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum had by far his best game of the season, but don't expect a repeat performance any time soon.

Rams | Case Keenum struggles in win

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 18:33:04 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum completed 14 of his 22 pass attempts for 124 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 14 win against the Detroit Lions. He also ran twice for two yards.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum was terribly ineffective and he cannot be trusted in any fantasy format going forward.

Rams | Case Keenum likely will play

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 14:10:59 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) appears to be on track to start against the Lions. Keenum did not post good numbers in his only other start this season, so owners should look for other options.

Rams | Case Keenum, Greg Zuerlein practice

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 15:46:11 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) and PK Greg Zuerlein (hip) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) returns to the starting role under a new offensive coordinator. You should ignore him everywhere until the Rams show signs of life on that side of the ball. Zuerlein could very well return to kicking duties this week but is a low-end booting option.

Rams | Case Keenum a full go

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 17:25:36 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) put in a full practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Now that Keenum ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is apparently back to full health, he'll get the start against the Detroit Lions over Nick Foles. The quarterback carousel continues under a new offensive coordinator, so there isn't much hope for progress for this offense. Stay away from Keenum on FantasyScore.

Rams | Case Keenum to start Week 14

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 17:45:19 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) will make the start in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions, head coach Jeff Fisher said Sunday, Dec. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum will be facing a Detroit Lions pass defense which ranked 15th entering play in Week 13. He isn't worth using in most fantasy formats, as the St. Louis offense is in shambles.

Rams | Case Keenum to serve as backup Sunday

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 09:10:49 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) is serving as the backup to QB Nick Foles for Week 13's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was limited in practice this week and had been listed as questionable on the team's most recent injury report. Don't be surprised if he regains the starting quarterback job next week if Foles ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has another poor performance today.

Rams | Case Keenum up in the air

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 14:05:50 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will not start this weekend regardless, but he remains the starting quarterback for the Rams when healthy. Nick Foles ($4,600) will receive the starting nod against the Cards, but you need your head checked if you're considering starting him on FantasyScore.

Rams | Nick Foles to start in Week 13

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 16:51:23 -0800

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 (concussion) 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.

Fantasy Tip: The quarterback situation is a mess in St. Louis regardless of the injury to Keenum ($4,600, 9.2% of cap). Foles ($4,600) faces one of the better defenses in the league this weekend. He's definitely not playable on FantasyScore.

Rams | Limited practice for Case Keenum

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 15:33:49 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Keenum ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) nor Nick Foles ($4,600) should be trusted in any fantasy format going against the Arizona Cardinals and their aggressive defense in Week 13. It could get ugly.

Rams | Limited practice for Case Keenum

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 15:56:05 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Keenum ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) returns to face the Arizona Cardinals, he shouldn't come across your mind on FantasyScore. Nick Foles ($4,600) is an option to avoid against this tough defense if Keenum misses another week, too.

Rams | Case Keenum still being evaluated

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 16:46:49 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) 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.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum must be cleared by an independent doctor before playing this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals. Even if he returns to action, Keenum shouldn't be a high priority for daily gamers against Arizona, a team that is pretty tough against opposing quarterbacks.

Rams | Nick Foles to start versus CIN

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 09:15:24 -0800

Confirming previous reports, St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles will start against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 12, with QB Case Keenum (concussion) still recovering from a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Foles ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) began the year as the team's No. 1 quarterback but was benched in favor of Keenum for Week 11's game against the Ravens, only to regain the starting job due to injury. Foles has a 75.9 quarterback rating this season, making him 29th out of 31 NFL quarterbacks who qualify, and does not have a favorable matchup this week against one of the league's better pass defenses. He should be avoided in FantasyScore despite the low price.

Rams | St. Louis won't be penalized

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 08:12:36 -0800

According to multiple sources, the St. Louis Rams will not be penalized by the NFL for mishandling concussion protocols with QB Case Keenum (concussion) during Week 11's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: With Keenum out for Week 12's game against the Bengals, Nick Foles ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will receive the starting nod. He is not a recommended option in FantasyScore versus Cincinnati's pass defense.

Rams | Nick Foles should start

Sat, 28 Nov 2015 11:41:28 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles is expected to start in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals with QB Case Keenum (concussion) still recovering from a concussion, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals have a pretty tough pass defense, and Foles ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has played subpar this year. He's not worth starting in Week 12.

Rams | Nick Foles prepared to start

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 15:14:58 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles is prepared to start in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals with QB Case Keenum (concussion) still in the concussion protocol, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. However, the Rams will see how Keenum is feeling Sunday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) seems unlikely to suit up this weekend. Foles ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has looked ugly under center for St. Louis this year and can't be expected to produce much against a strong Bengals defense. Stay away from both quarterbacks in all formats.

Rams | Case Keenum questionable

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 13:40:46 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: If Keenum ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) isn't cleared to play, Nick Foles ($4,600, 9.2%) will get another start, but he has proven to be unreliable and has a really tough test against the Bengals. Neither is an advisable starting quarterback for FantasyScore lineups.

Rams | Case Keenum limited again

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 12:47:11 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 26. The Rams did not practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) status for the game is uncertain at this point, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Nick Foles ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) would start if Keenum would not play, but neither is a great starting option for owners.

Rams | Case Keenum limited

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 15:36:25 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) will start this week if he's healthy enough. If he is unable to play, Nick Foles ($4,600, 9.2%) will start. Neither is a good play against the Cincinnati Bengals this week, though.

Rams | Case Keenum to start if healthy

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 19:39:38 -0800

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) will start in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals if he is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has a tempting price tag, but he isn't worth using in FantasyScore against the Bengals' middle of the road pass defense.

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) did not participate in the Rams' light practice Tuesday, Nov. 24, but could participate Wednesday, Nov. 25, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is another player that will need to be monitored throughout the week. If Keenum isn't able to play, Nick Foles ($4,600, 9.2%) would likely return as starter, but neither is an advisable option against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 15:20:48 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) suffered a concussion in the Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens on the team's final drive.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum was just tabbed as the team's starting quarterback this week, but that might be in jeopardy moving into Week 12. If he cannot go, it's likely the Rams go back to Nick Foles.

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 15:19:15 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum will be the starting quarterback for the Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum will receive his first start of the season and probably will not be asked to be do much in the offense. Owners probably should be able to find better quarterbacks to use in Week 11.

Rams | St. Louis intends to draft a QB

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 10:14:28 -0700

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said it's the team's intention to draft a quarterback in this year's draft, despite trading for QB Nick Foles in the offseason. Florida State QB Jameis Winston and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota are expected to be off the board when the Rams pick with the 10th overall pick in the first round, but the Rams could also trade up to take one of them. The Rams could also look at the second tier of quarterbacks in this class, which includes Baylor QB Bryce Petty, California-Los Angeles QB Brett Hundley, Oregon QB Sean Mannion and Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson. Petty indicated that he has a visit planned with St. Louis. Rams QBs Austin Davis and Case Keenum will compete for the backup job, and the loser might be on the street if the Rams draft another quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Foles upgrades the Rams offense, but unless St. Louis adds some more playmakers around him, he won't be anything more than a boring QB2 for fantasy purposes. It's highly unlikely that the quarterback the Rams draft takes over the starting job from Foles in 2015.

Texans | Case Keenum gets vote of confidence

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 04:23:16 -0800

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum picked up a vote of confidence from head coach Bill O'Brien, who called Keenum a "very viable" option at quarterback for 2015.

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien did not specify whether he meant Keenum had a future as backup or as a starter. Keep in mind the Texans have Ryan Mallett as well at quarterback, and Mallett worked well under Tom Brady in New England. Keenum's fantasy value depends entirely on whether he starts or holds a clipboard, so wait and see how this develops.

Texans | Houston keeping QB options open

Fri, 06 Feb 2015 09:38:45 -0800

Houston Texans QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Mallett and Case Keenum will all be evaluated by the coaching staff this offseason, but head coach Bill O'Brien said the team is keeping their options open at the position. "We'll make the right decision and it will probably be a competition," O'Brien said. "It will be something where guys come in and compete and have to win the job and that's the way it should be and that's what we're looking to do." Mallett will become a free agent in March.

Fantasy Tip: It's really anyone's guess as to what the Texans will do at the QB position to start the 2015 season. Mallett has the most upside, but it's unknown if Houston will try to bring him back this offseason. No matter what, whoever has the job at the end of training camp won't be anything more than a low-end backup quarterback.

Texans | Case Keenum expected to start

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 07:00:28 -0800

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum is expected to start in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Arian Foster ($7,300; 14.6% of your cap) should see a healthy workload this week. Keenum hasn't been on board very long, and the playbook could be scaled back. DeAndre Hopkins ($6,600; 13.2%) makes a suspect play on FantasyScore with all the uncertainty.

Texans | Andre Johnson has connection with backups

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:43:02 -0800

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has a pretty good connection with both QBs Thaddeus Lewis and Case Keenum, who will be battling for the start in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens. Lewis was coached by head coach Bill O'Brien back in college, and Lewis also worked with Johnson in the offseason in South Florida. Keenum connected with Johnson for five touchdown passes last year, and Johnson likes Keenum's approach at the QB position.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($6,000) is recovering from a concussion, so he's not a sure thing to play against the Ravens, but if he does, we think he's a better FantasyScore option than DeAndre Hopkins ($6,600) because of Johnson's familiarity with both QBs. Either way, though, you're taking a big risk with them in your daily lineups.

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 12:37:44 -0800

Houston Texans QBs Case Keenum and Thaddeus Lewis will find out later this week which one of them will start versus the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Again, whoever starts still isn't worth a starting spot in daily leagues or seasonal leagues, unless you're looking for value at other positions in daily leagues.

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 12:35:02 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) underwent surgery Monday, Dec. 15, on his broken tibia he suffered in Week 15. QB Tom Savage (knee) will miss at least this week's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Case Keenum has already been signed and could get the spot start this week. While Keenum does have experience with Houston, he's not a starting option at this point on FantasyScore unless you're looking for value at other positions.
