John Kelly waived by the Rams

The Rams waived RB John Kelly on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Kelly was selected by the Rams in the sixth round of the 2018 draft and has appeared in only eight games in his career. He logged only three rushing attempts for the Rams in 2019. Kelly will look to latch onto another roster.

John Kelly activated from practice squad

John Kelly has been activated from the Rams' practice squad.

Fantasy Impact

With starter Todd Gurley not suiting up for Sunday's matchup against the 49ers, the Rams have activated Kelly from their practice squad to get some touches. While fellow backs Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown are expected to get the bulk of the carries Sunday, Kelly will add some necessary depth to the Rams' backfield.

John Kelly inefficient in Week 17

John Kelly rushed 15 times for 30 yards and caught one pass for 18 yards as the Rams beat the 49ers 48-32 in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Kelly operated behind C.J. Anderson in this one and wasn’t nearly as effective. The rookie running back will return to the bench when Todd Gurley returns for the divisional round in two weeks.

John Kelly gets 10 carries in Week 16

John Kelly rushed 10 times for 40 yards and caught one pass for 9 yards as the Rams beat the Cardinals in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Kelly took a backseat to C.J. Anderson with Todd Gurley (knee) inactive. Anderson saw twice as many carries as Kelly and also found the end zone. This was just the second time Kelly has been active this season. He'll have a similar role in Week 17 versus the 49ers if Gurley is once again unable to go.

John Kelly doesn't play in opener

John Kelly was in active for the Rams' 33-13 Week 1 victory over the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

The rookie impressed throughout the preseason, but Los Angeles elected to only keep two RBs active in this one. Malcolm Brown was the backup to Todd Gurley. Kelly is nothing more than a high upside dynasty stash.
