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.

The Rams D/ST came away with four sacks and two interceptions during their 24-10 win over the Bears on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: Although they are less potent than years past, the Rams D/ST did a nice job making things difficult for Nick Foles and the Bears offense. The only touchdown the Bears were able to put up came on defense as their offense was limited to just a field goal on the evening. The Rams D/ST will be an juicy streaming option against the Dolphins and rookie Tua Tagovailoa, who is making his first career start.

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.

Van Jefferson caught one pass for 14 yards during the Rams' 24-10 win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Jefferson made an impressive 14-yard reception while falling out of bounds in the first half but was otherwise unheard from. He is clearly behind Josh Reynolds in the pecking order and isn't a trustworthy fantasy option going forward.

Cam Akers was only on the field for 3 snaps and didn't see a carry or a target in the passing game during the Rams' 24-10 win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: It's now been two weeks since head coach Sean McVay told reporters that Akers' workload will begin to ramp up and he has seen the field 4 total times since those remarks. It appears either the Rams' are comfortable with Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown running the show or Akers isn't fully healthy but either reason doesn't bode well for his fantasy value. He is droppable until further notice.

Gerald Everett caught 4-of-5 targets for 28 yards and a score during the Rams' 24-10 victory over the Bears on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: With Tyler Higbee (hand) sitting this one out, Everett was the clear TE1 for the Rams. His ceiling was limited due to the low pass volume the Rams' needed in order to win, though he was able to hook up with Jared Goff for a 12-yard score late in the third quarter. If Higbee is forced to miss any more time, Everett will be a solid streaming option in Week 8 against the Dolphins.

Josh Reynolds caught 4-of-8 targets for 52 yards and a score during the Rams' 24-10 win over the Bears on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: Due to the extra attention afforded to both Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, Jared Goff looked Reynolds' way early and often. The duo connected three times for 31 yards and a score in the first two quarters, though the Rams' built a big lead and sat on it for much of the second half. Reynolds is clearly ahead of Van Jefferson, who only caught one pass on Monday, but long ago are the days when this passing offense was able to support three fantasy relevant receivers. Reynolds is not a recommended fantasy option in Week 8.

Malcolm Brown rushed 10 times for 57 yards and a score during the Rams' 24-10 win over the Bears on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: Brown operated behind Darrell Henderson in this one but was the beneficiary of a goal line carry that he turned into a one-yard score in the third quarter. Henderson is the back to own on this offense, though heavy volume should keep Brown in the FLEX/RB4 conversation ahead of the teams Week 8 matchup against the Dolphins.

Robert Woods caught 3-of-5 targets for 22 yards and rushed four times for 23 yards during the Rams' 24-10 win over the Bears. He also lost a fumble late in the fourth quarter that was scooped up for a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: This was easily Woods' worst performance of the season and it's possible he wasn't entirely healthy after nursing a groin injury throughout the week. Outside of 13 yard catch on the Rams' opening drive and a 25-yard run in the third quarter, Woods' name was barely mentioned and his five targets were behind both Cooper Kupp (6) and Josh Reynolds (8). To make matters even worse, Woods' also lost a fumble late in the fourth quarter that was returned for a Bears' touchdown. He should have better days than this but the low volume was going to catch up to him sooner rather than later. Consider him a low-end WR2 against the Dolphins in Week 8.

Cooper Kupp hauled in all six of his targets for 43 yards during the Rams' 24-10 victory over the Bears on Monday Night Football. He also added 16 yards on his lone rush attempt.

Fantasy Impact: It was a weird night for Rams' receivers as Jared Goff did his best to spread the wealth. Even when Kupp was targeted it was rarely more than 10 yards down the field leading to his low yardage total. Kupp has now put together three disappointing performances in a row heading into the teams Week 8 matchup against the Dolphins underrated defense. He should be considered a fringe WR2 going forward.

Darrell Henderson rushed 15 times for 64 yards and caught all two of his targets for an additional 13 yards during the Rams' 24-10 win over the Bears on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: Although Henderson received more touches than Malcolm Brown and Cam Akers combined, it appeared that he and Brown alternated series for much of the night. Brown rushed 10 times and was able to punch in a score from one yard out in the third quarter. Henderson also appeared injure his calf after he briefly exited the game in the second half but fortunately for fantasy managers he was able to return. We've now seen three straight weeks of Henderson operating as the top dog in this backfield and he will be on the RB2/RB3 radar in Week 8 against the Dolphins.

Jared Goff completed 23-of-33 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns during the Rams' 24-10 victory on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: Goff was sharp in this one, though the Rams' built a big lead in the third quarter leading to a less aggressive passing scheme for the remaining 16 minutes. He has now eclipsed at least two passing touchdowns in all but two games this season and will be a find streaming option against the Dolphins in Week 8.

Fantasy Impact: Higbee is dealing with a hand injury, but there was some hope that he would be able to play this week after practicing on a limited basis on Saturday. With Higbee out, Gerald Everett will see a major boost in snaps. He has TE1 level upside with the projected increase in snaps and targets. Everett is worth a speculative add for those in leagues where he is still lying on the wire, even for those who may not need him Monday night.

The Rams D/ST struggled to make much of an impact against the 49ers on Sunday night. The Rams gave up 24 points and were unable to get a sack or force a turnover.

Fantasy Impact: The Rams D/ST didn't have any success getting to the quarterback on Sunday night, despite having eight sacks the week before. The rams face Chicago next week, which sounds good, but could be a trap game as the Bears' offense has started to look better recently.

Cornerback Jalen Ramsey and the Los Angeles Rams have agreed to terms on a massive extension that resets the cornerback market, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. The five-year, $105M extension averages $21M per year and is the largest contract signed by a cornerback. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Rams have been trying to extend Ramsey since acquiring him in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars for two first-round picks last year. Ramsey won't turn 26 years old until October and is already one of the best defensive backs in the NFL, and the Rams just locked him up for the next five seasons.

The Los Angeles Rams are waiving Hard Knocks personality, CB Donte Deayon, per sources. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The undrafted corner out of Boise State was a huge personality on HBO’s Hard Knocks series that highlights Rams training camp. His fun and entertaining ways are likely going to find their way onto an NFL roster, and it could still potentially be the Rams’ if he gets added to the practice squad.

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.

Fantasy Impact: This is a huge blow for the Rams as Howard was in line to start in place of Cory Littleton, who signed with the Raiders in free agency. A seventh-round selection in 2018, Howard has posted 22 tackles and three pass deflections across 16 games in his professional career.

According to Ian Rapoport, the Jets are planning to sign FA WR Donte Moncrief once he passes through his COVID-19 protocols. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Jets have been in dire need for some help at receiver after losing Vyncint Smith to core muscle surgery and with rookie Denzel Mims still not practicing due to a hamstring issue. Moncrief, along with Chris Hogan, should provide some much needed depth for Sam Darnold to begin the year. The Jets will be Moncrief's third team in the last year and he will likely remain irrelevant for fantasy purposes.
