Rams | Todd Gurley marred by inefficiency last year

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 18:29:57 -0700

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley ranked 41st in fantasy efficiency among 42 qualifying running backs in 2016. He finished last in PPR fantasy scoring per touch, and second to last in standard fantasy points per touch as well as offensive yards per touch. Gurley ranked 39th in standard fantasy points per contest and 22nd in PPR points per game, which was his highest ranking of any efficiency category.

Fantasy Tip: You can thank Jeff Fisher's predictable brand of football (and a lack of overall talent) for those numbers. Life should get better, albeit possibly a marginal improvement, for Gurley in 2017. The Rams will be more diverse and dynamic under Sean McVay. In theory, Jared Goff will have taken a step forward, too, by season's end. Gurley is a shaky RB1 and better drafted as a second in all formats.

Rams | Tavon Austin not ready yet

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 17:16:19 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (hamstring) is making progress in his recovery from a hamstring injury but is not expected to practice this week or play in the third preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Austin has been sidelined for a little over a week because his injury and probably will not be back on the field until Week 1. He is expected to have a similar role this season than he had in 2016 but probably will lose some targets to Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. He could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues but will not be a weekly starting option.

Rams | Tavon Austin to be in similar role

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 06:51:03 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (hamstring) will be used in a similar role as he has in the past, according to general manager Les Snead. "We haven't figured out how much he evolves as a receiver in this offense because he hasn't had a chance to play," Snead said. "Plan to see him used very similarly to how he's been used in the past. By that I mean, he's scored as a receiver, he's scored as a running back, he's scored as a returner. That's why we like him. He threatens the opposing team in many different ways. We've just got to get him healthy."

Fantasy Tip: Austin offered a glimmer of hope of justifying his No. 8 overall pick status in 2015 with a 52-473-5 receiving line and a 52-434-4 rushing line. He's a small receiver that you can do a lot of things with, but the previous regime couldn't make him enough of a factor. He has WR5 viability, but it's unlikely he'll be a consistent fantasy source.

Rams | Sammy Watkins expected to play Saturday

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 18:56:58 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins is expected to play in the preseason game against the Oakland Raiders Saturday, Aug. 14, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins will need some time to learn the Rams offense, so it is not known how much playing time he will receive Saturday. Watkins probably will be the Rams' top receiver this season and should see plenty of targets. He probably should be considered a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Rams | Tavon Austin not practicing this week

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 17:01:53 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (hamstring) will not participate in practice this week because of a hamstring injury. Head coach Sean McVay said the team is not sure if Austin will play in any preseason games.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Austin will be ready for the start of the regular season. He probably will be the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for the Rams this season and may see fewer targets because of the addition of Sammy Watkins. He could be a No. 5 receiver in some leagues or a waiver wire option during the season.

Rams | Sammy Watkins expects big plays

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 20:53:56 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins said he can be "that home-run guy" for the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has loads of talent, but staying healthy was already a problem, and the quarterback situation in Los Angeles is far from ideal. He should be considered a high-upside WR3 at this point.

Rams | Tavon Austin still has role in Rams' offense

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 10:47:14 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin "definitely has a place" even after the team acquired WR Sammy Watkins from the Buffalo Bills on Friday, Aug. 11, according to general manager Les Snead.

Fantasy Tip: The Rams' top three receivers figure to be Watkins, Robert Woods and rookie Cooper Kupp, so Austin will likely be limited to four-wide sets as a receiver. However, he could see more action as a returner and the team could try to use him to fill the scatback role they had previously envisioned for Lance Dunbar. Regardless, it's hard to envision Austin seeing enough time on offense this year to be relevant in fantasy.

Rams | No movement on Aaron Donald front

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 09:44:14 -0700

Los Angeles Rams DL Aaron Donald did not participate in OTAs or minicamp this spring and is more than two weeks into a holdout during training camp as he seeks a contract that makes him one of the game's highest-paid defensive players. General manager Les Snead indicated recently there has "not (been) any movement, (but) there is hope. … Hope you'll be a Ram for a long time."

Rams | Sammy Watkins may receive long-term deal

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 14:24:55 -0700

Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead said the team is interested in signing WR Sammy Watkins to a long-term contract since he is entering the last year of his contract. The two sides have not had contract talks at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins should be the No. 1 receiver for the Rams this season but is still a risky option because of his injury history. He has joined another team that likes to run the ball, but he should receive a solid amount of targets in the passing game. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Rams | Tavon Austin not on the block

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 11:25:48 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin isn't expected to be traded after the team acquired Sammy Watkins from the Buffalo Bills on Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Austin's fantasy stock pretty much plummets with Watkins' arrival, but the Rams are doing the right thing by keeping him around since their new addition is such an injury risk. As long as Watkins is healthy, Austin figures to remain a bit of a gadget player and someone they may look to use a bit more in the role they had planned for Lance Dunbar, given the fact Austin has played running back from time to time. With that said, Austin can be left on the wire in most normal-sized leagues.
