Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams PK Greg Zuerlein's one-year deal is worth $1.25 million with an $850,000 base salary ($250,000 guaranteed) and a $400,000 signing bonus. He can earn up to $2.05 million in incentives for field-goal percentage and 50-yard field goals.
Fantasy Tip: "The Leg" has been a fruitful fantasy option and a frustrating one as well. His offense simply hasn't put him in enough chances to score, and he has been erratic at times. He's a midrange PK option in fantasy.

Free-agent PK Greg Zuerlein (Rams) signed with the Los Angeles Rams Friday, April 15. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Zuerlein will be a low-end option for owners because the Rams will now be playing home games outside, and he is on a team with a questionable offense.
Fri, 12 Feb 2016 11:28:44 -0800
Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent PK Greg Zuerlein is a candidate to receive the franchise tag. He has one of the biggest legs in the NFL.
Fantasy Tip: The Rams offense was and has been pretty pitiful in recent years, which doesn't help Zuerlein's cause. Until Los Angeles becomes more consistent in their scoring chances, Zuerlein's big leg might continue to be wasted for fantasy purposes.

St. Louis Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (illness) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 22, due to an illness.
Fantasy Tip: Luckily for Zuerlein this is happening early on in the week. The Rams are still several days away from game day, so Zuerlein still has plenty of time to recover. Stay tuned for updates throughout the week if you're counting on him as your fantasy championship kicker.
Fri, 11 Dec 2015 14:00:25 -0800
St. Louis Rams PK Zach Hocker (thigh) and PK Greg Zuerlein (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 11, and are listed as probable for the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check around game time to see which kicker will be active and kick the field-goal attempts. Owners may want to use another kicker because of the uncertain status with the Rams.
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.
Wed, 09 Dec 2015 17:19:34 -0800
St. Louis Rams PK Zach Hocker (thigh) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 9, while PK Greg Zuerlein (hip) was a full participant.
Fantasy Tip: It's possible that Zuerlein could return to the kicking duties this weekend against the Detroit Lions. But with the Rams defense failing to move the ball much at all, neither kicker in St. Louis is worth playing in traditional formats.
Sun, 06 Dec 2015 08:43:30 -0800
The St. Louis Rams have declared OT Andrew Donnal, C Brian Folkerts, DL Ethan Westbrooks, PK Greg Zuerlein, DL Robert Quinn, QB Sean Mannion, CB Trumaine Johnson inactive for Week 13.
Fri, 04 Dec 2015 14:03:14 -0800
St. Louis Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (hip) missed practice all week and is doubtful to kick against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13.
Fantasy Tip: Zuerlein should be on the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues at this point. Zach Hocker will handle the kicking duties against the Cardinals, but he's also a weak kicking option.
Thu, 03 Dec 2015 15:30:39 -0800
St. Louis Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (hip) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 3.
Fantasy Tip: Legatron has not delivered with his big leg this year and remains a kicker to leave on the waiver wire.
Wed, 02 Dec 2015 15:54:38 -0800
St. Louis Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.
Fantasy Tip: Zuerlein has made only 15 of his 23 attempted field goals this year and has been a disappointment to fantasy owners. Leave him to the waiver wire.
Sun, 29 Nov 2015 08:49:51 -0800
The St. Louis Rams have declared OT Andrew Donnal, QB Case Keenum, DL Ethan Westbrooks, PK Greg Zuerlein, OT Isaiah Battle, DL Robert Quinn, CB Trumaine Johnson inactive for Week 12.

St. Louis Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (groin) is inactive for Week 12's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. PK Zack Hocker will handle all kicking duties.
Fantasy Tip: Zuerlein suffered the groin injury during practice Friday, Nov. 27, and it is uncertain at this point if he will miss additional games. Hocker is worth considering for any fantasy teams in need of a placekicker.
Sat, 28 Nov 2015 11:16:11 -0800
Free-agent PK Zach Hocker (Saints) is signing with the St. Louis Rams Saturday, Nov. 28, incase PK Greg Zuerlein (groin) is unable to play, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Zuerlein's status will need to be monitored leading up to tomorrow's game with the Cincinnati Bengals. If he can't play, Hocker is worth a pickup for anyone in need of a kicker or for anyone who owns Zuerlein.
Fri, 27 Nov 2015 13:44:30 -0800
St. Louis Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (groin) was added to the injury report Friday, Nov. 27, as a limited participant. He is questionable for Week 12.
Fantasy Tip: Greg the Leg's injury is somewhat of a mystery as he wasn't on the injury report earlier this week. Kickers are expendable in seasonal leagues, so don't be afraid to drop Zuerlein if you need a replacement, if only for this week.
Fri, 24 Oct 2014 13:26:19 -0700
St. Louis Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (illness) did not practice Friday, Oct. 24, but he is probable for Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Fantasy Tip: Zuerlein is on the cheaper end of the spectrum for kickers at FantasyScore ($2,600), making him a decent option for your lineups. It's never wise to pay up for a kicker in daily games.
Mon, 17 Dec 2012 10:35:23 -0800
