Fantasy Impact: Bosa’s activity this week will definitely be worth monitoring as he attempts to clear concussion protocol and practice in some capacity in time to go up against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night. His ability to shed defenders and pressure the quarterback will be desperately needed if the 49ers hope to beat Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and company on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: After getting some practice in ahead of the Titans regular season finale in which Henry did not play to go along with the practice he will go through this week, Henry appears to be on track to being able to return for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Bengals. It will likely only be a matter of whether or not he will be limited in any capacity in his first game back.

Matt Gay connected on both of his field goal attempts and all four extra point attempts in the Rams Wildcard Round win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: The field goals were late in the game from 37 and 46 yards out. The Rams are going to continue to need clutch kicks from Gay next week against Tampa Bay.

The Los Angeles Rams D/ST held the Arizona Cardinals offense to 11 points and 183 total yards in Monday's Wildcard win.

Fantasy Impact: The Rams were all over Kyler Murray right out of the gate, picking up two sacks and two interceptions including a pick-six. They will have a much tougher test as they head out to face Tom Brady and Tampa Bay next week.

Tyler Higbee caught three passes for 46 yards in the Rams Wildcard Round win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Higbee tied Odell Beckham for second on the team in targets (4) in a very low-volume passing game for the Rams offense.

Category: Game Recaps


Van Jefferson caught one pass for 41 yards in the Rams Wildcard Round win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: The one reception came late in the third quarter. It was also his only target in what was a very low-volume passing game for the Rams. They should throw the ball a lot more next week against Tampa Bay.

Cooper Kupp caught five passes for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Rams Wildcard Round win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: In a very low-volume passing game for Matthew Stafford, Kupp caught just one catch in the first half. He picked it up a bit more in the second half that included a seven-yard touchdown. The Rams are certainly going to need more of Kupp next week against Tampa Bay.

Odell Beckham Jr. caught four passes for 54 yards and a touchdown in Monday's Wildcard Round win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Beckham also completed a 40-yard pass to Cam Akers on a trick play. He opened up the game's scoring with a four-yard touchdown in the first quarter. In a low-volume passing game for the Rams, Matthew Stafford will have to throw the ball a lot more next week against Tampa Bay.

Cam Akers took 17 carries for 55 yards to go along with one catch for 40 yards in Monday's Wildcard Round win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Akers one reception came on a trick play on a pass from Odell Beckham. He led the team in carries with Sony Michel leading the backfield in rushing yards (58) on the night. It'll likely continue to be a very even split heading into Tampa Bay between Akers and Michel.

Category: Game Recaps


Sony Michel took 13 carries for 58 yards in Monday's Wildcard Round win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Michel took a carry for 35 yards on the Rams first offensive play of the game. He was a pretty even split with Cam Akers throughout the game with Akers seeing more carries (17), but Michel leading the team in rushing yards. It'll likely once again be an even split next week against Tampa Bay.

Matthew Stafford completed 13-of-17 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's Wildcard Round win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Stafford also added a rushing touchdown on a QB sneak. The Rams dominated this entire game from the start which is why it was such a low-volume passing game for Stafford. He is definitley going to have to throw the ball a lot more next week against Tampa Bay.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Rondale Moore is active for Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams. (Source: Josh Weinfuss on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Moore has been incredibly inconsistent as a rookie but has game-breaking talent that could help dictate the flow of this game. With that said, the Cardinals have not proven that they know how to utilize and involve their electric receiver well enough to trust week-to-week. Moore was able to participate in practice all week, albeit in a limited fashion, and should be out there for all of the snaps he can handle.

Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds is active for Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams. (Source: Josh Weinfuss on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Edmonds was listed as questionable along with fellow running back James Conner but was the more active participant in practices this week. Conner was only able to log one practice all week, a limited session on Saturday. Edmonds should function as the lead back tonight but will likely cede short-yardage and red zone work to Conner. Arizona will need to find some success on the ground in order to have a chance against a banged-up but still intimidating Rams defense.

Fantasy Impact: There was never much doubt regarding Conner being active for tonight's matchup, but it remains to be seen how effective and involved he will be for the Cardinals. Conner has been one of the Cardinals most consistent players on offense and will be needed to help the Cardinals pull off the victory. Chase Edmonds, who is also active, will likely log the bulk of the snaps, but Conner should be on the field in short-yardage and red zone situations.
