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.

John Kelly scores twice on Saturday

John Kelly rushed 15 times for 64 yards and two touchdowns as the Rams took on the Houston Texans in preseason Week 3.

Fantasy Impact

He added two catches for zero yards. Kelly is a great running back prospect, but he’s obviously stuck behind Todd Gurley. The rookie could have mouth watering upside should anything happen to Gurley, but as of now he’s nothing more than a handcuff.

John Kelly impressive again in preseason Week 2

Rams rookie running back John Kelly rushed 18 times for 56 yards and a touchdown in Friday night's game versus the Raiders, adding two catches for four more yards.

Fantasy Impact

The sixth round rookie just continues to impress when giving opportunities. Kelly got a big workload in this one with none of the Rams starters seeing the field. He would need a Todd Gurley injury to carry meaningful fantasy value, but Kelly looks in line to be the backup in Los Angeles this season.
