WR - LAR
Week 14 Outlook
Puka Nacua (shoulder) was a limited participant at Los Angeles' practice on Wednesday.
Nacua was limited at Wednesday's practice thanks a shoulder injury that he suffered in Week 13. He was able to return and finish that game, so we can presume that his injury is minor and that he's likely to play in Week 14. Fantasy managers can feel confident rolling him out as a high-upside flex option, despite having a less-than-ideal matchup against the Ravens on Sunday.
Rams WR Puka Nacua suffered a sprained AC joint Sunday but is not expected to miss any time, per head coach Sean McVay.
McVay expects Nacua to be able to suit up for the Rams’ Week 14 matchup with the Ravens. The rookie wideout still turned in a 100-yard performance with the injury in Sunday’s game against the Browns. Fantasy managers should expect Nacua to be limited in practice this week with the expectation that he will play in Week 14.
Puka Nacua caught 4 of 7 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown, adding 34 yards on two carries in Sunday's 36-19 win over the Browns.
Following a down game in Week 12, Nacua turned in a terrific performance Sunday. Despite facing a tough Browns defense, Nacua scored on a 70-yard pass play - the longest of his career to date - in the first quarter and added a 31-yard run later in the game. The rookie receiver eclipsed the 100-yard mark for the fifth time this season while scoring his fourth touchdown. Nacua moves forward as an easy WR2.
Puka Nacua has returned to the Rams' game against the Browns.
