Los Angeles Rams

NFC West

Robert Woods caught 8-of-10 targets for just 48 yards in a 32-18 divisional round loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact: Woods led the Rams' receivers in targets, which was to be expected with Cooper Kupp (knee) inactive and Woods operating mostly out of the slot. He avoided Packers' CB Jaire Alexander for most of the game, which is why Jared Goff continued to look his way throughout. Woods finishes 2020 tying a career-high in touchdowns (6), but was unable to top 1,000 yards like he did in 2018 and 2019. Consider him a solid WR2 option in 2021.

Van Jefferson caught 6-of-7 targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in a 32-18 divisional round loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact: Jefferson's two best games both came down the stretch. In Week 17, he saw eight targets, and against the Packers in the playoffs saw seven targets and turned that into 46 yards and a score. Jefferson is a solid dynasty stash, but this Rams offense still runs through Cam Akers, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp until further notice.

Josh Reynolds caught 3-of-4 targets for 65 yards in a 32-18 divisional round loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds saw just four targets in this one, but led all Rams receivers with 65 yards with Cooper Kupp (knee) inactive. Reynolds had some solid games this season, but he shouldn't be considered anything more than a WR4/5 next season as a deep league flier.

Cam Akers rushed 18 times for 90 yards and a score and caught his only target for another six yards in a 32-18 divisional round loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact: Akers handled 100% of the running back carries for the Rams in this game and has been a workhorse back since Week 13 of the regular season. With head coach Sean McVay seeming to hand over the reigns of the backfield to Akers down the stretch, it's clear he's going to be the feature back in 2021, and has a chance to become a top-10 running back given his talent and opportunity.

Jared Goff completed 21-of-27 passes for 174 yards and a touchdown in a 32-18 loss to the Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: Goff had a high completion percentage in this game (77.8), but wasn't able to do enough to overcome a high-powered Packers offense on Saturday. He finished the regular season throwing for just under 4,000 yards, with 20 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Because of his inability to generate much production on the ground, Goff is nothing more than a mid-range QB2 in 2021.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is inactive and will not play in Saturday’s NFC Divisional Round matchup against the Packers. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kupp was a game-time decision heading into Saturday’s game, but was ultimately ruled out. He is dealing with knee inflammation and needs additional time to fully recover. Look for Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson to see extra snaps while Kupp is sidelined.

Rams DL Aaron Donald (ribs) was removed from the team's final injury report and will play on Saturday against the Packers. (Source: Cameron DaSilva on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The expectation all week has been that Donald will play. LA will certainly need their stud defensive lineman on the road in Green Bay, opposite Aaron Rodgers and company.

Rams QB John Wolford (neck) has been ruled out for Saturday's Divisional Round matchup against the Packers. (Source: Andrew Siciliano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wolford suffered the neck injury early on in Wild Card Weekend against Seattle. Jared Goff (thumb) will be thrust into the starting role after his own injury was serious enough for him not to start last weekend.

Category: Injury Updates

Tyler Higbee caught just 1-of-3 targets for four yards in a 30-20 Wild Card win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Higbee saw three targets compared to Gerald Everett, who saw just one target. It seems as if Jared Goff was only looking in the direction of his two main wide receivers, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. It seems as if Higbee and Everett are the odd men out of the passing equation for the Rams, especially with the team leaning so heavily on Cam Akers and the running game.

The Rams activated LT Andrew Whitworth from injured reserve. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Whitworth has been sidelined since Week 10. He'll rejoin the Rams just in time to help an offense that'll be starting either John Wolford or a limited Jared Goff at quarterback.

Gerald Everett caught 2-of-7 targets for 25 yards during the Rams Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: The seven targets were nice, however, Everett was unable to capitalize on the increased volume. Tyler Higbee was much more effective on three less targets, as he has seemingly taken back the TE1 reigns in this offense. Everett had his moments early in the season but was otherwise disappointing down the stretch.

Malcolm Brown rushed three times for 20 yards and caught one pass for negative yardage during the Rams 18-7 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Brown operated as the second running back with Darrell Henderson landing on IR. The Rams have fully committed to Cam Akers, despite his rough outing so it left little room for Brown to produce. After an exciting start to the season, Brown has seen his snap count dwindle as the season wore on.

Leonard Floyd (abdomen) will play in Week 17's game against the Cardinals. (Source: Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Floyd was held out of practice with abdomen pains but is good to go for Sunday’s matchup against the Cardinals. He’s having a career year with 9.5 sacks and makes for a solid IDP option.

The Rams placed RB Darrell Henderson on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain. (Source: Gary Klein on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Henderson will be sidelined until at least the NFC Championship game, should the Rams make it that far. Cam Akers (ankle) appears unlikely to play as well, which means Malcolm Brown should lead this backfield in touches against Arizona in Week 17. Jared Goff (thumb) won't start this one either, so expectations should be very tempered for LA's offense as a whole.

Category: Injury Updates

Matt Gay nailed all three of his field goal attempts, including a 51-yarder en route to scoring all of the Rams points in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact: Gay has been a solid producer for Rams down the stretch this season and that should continue ahead of a divisional game against the Cardinals in Week 17.

The Rams D/ST held the Patriots' to three total points and 220 total yards of offense while compiling six sacks and returning an interception for a touchdown during their 24-3 win on Thursday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: The Rams D/ST has been dominant over the last three weeks as they forced at least one turnover and returned it for a touchdown in all three games. This week, it was Kenny Young picking off a Cam Newton pass in the first-half and returning it 79 yards for the score. They seem to be heating up at just the right time and are awarded a blow-up matchup against the lowly Jets' in Week 15.

Rams' K Kai Forbath (ankle) has been placed on Injured Reserve, per source. (Source: Eric Williams on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Forbath was signed by the Rams in October to relieve rookie K Sam Sloman. Forbath has converted two of three field goal attempts in two games for L.A. and will be replaced by either Matt Gay or Austin MacGinnis.

Rams safety Terrell Burgess (ankle) is out for the season. (Source: Eric Williams on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Burgess was a third-round pick of the Rams this year who broke his ankle while making a tackle in Week 7. He'll undergo surgery on Wednesday but should be healed well in advance of 2021 training camp.

Sam Sloman waived by Rams

NFL's Tom Pelissero is reporting that the Los Angeles Rams are waiving K Sam Sloman. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Sloman's release comes in the wake of the signing of K Kai Forbath last week. Sloman missed a 48-yard field goal on Monday night against the Bears and that seemed to be the last straw. Sloman, the 248th pick of the 2020 NFL draft, finished his seven-game tenure in LA going 8-of-11 on FG attempts and missing three extra points.

Johnny Mundt caught all three of his targets for 47 yards during the Rams' 24-10 win over the Bears on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: Tyler Higbee's absence thrust Mundt into a larger role on Monday and his 47 marked a career high. A huge chunk of his yardage total came on an impressive 34-yard catch and run in the second quarter. Despite the impressive showing, Mundt will not be a recommended fantasy option going forward, even if Higbee misses more time.
