  Rams | Los Angeles wants Sammy Watkins back    Thu Jan 25, 12:13 PM

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins could be given a franchise tag or transition tag this offseason if he and the Rams can't agree on a long-term deal. General manager Les Snead said the Rams have contacted Watkins' agent to discuss contract negotiations.

Footballguys view: Watkins looked like he fit better in Los Angeles but he didn't set the world on fire. The Rams will try and keep him but there's no reason to break the bank to do so.

  Rams | Sammy Watkins could be tagged    Thu Jan 11, 01:24 PM

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins may be given the franchise tag or a transition tag this offseason. The franchise tag would cost $16.063 million and a transition tag would cost $13.995 million. The Rams possess a $178.1 million salary cap in 2018.

Footballguys view: While Watkins didn't set the league on fire, he seemed to fit better in Los Angeles than he did with the Buffalo Bills. He also said that it "would be a pleasure to come back," so we know he's open.

  Rams | Sammy Watkins capable of greater role in LA    Wed Jan 10, 08:54 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins believes he would 'most definitely' have a greater role in the offense if given another year to work with QB Jared Goff. 'I just think he got on a roll with the guys that he had during OTAs, and once a guy is used to throwing it to someone else, he throws to his guys,' he said. 'It's just part of the game where you need more time, or maybe another year.' Watkins just completed his rookie deal and may be tagged this offseason to remain with the club.

  Rams | Sammy Watkins open to returning to LA    Tue Jan 9, 01:47 AM

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent, said that it 'would be a pleasure to come back.' He also mentioned that 'it's a business' and that he's 'looking forward to talking to the coach' and seeing where his future is at.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in 2014, Watkins did not get a fifth-year option by the Bills and then he was traded to the Rams. Watkins is correct, the Rams are building something special and he could be a big part of it. In 2017, Watkins appeared in 15 games finishing with 39 catches for 593 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. It's not outlandish to think Watkins could double those numbers (for receptions and receiving yards) while catching double-digit touchdowns for a Rams offense on the rise. He is open to returning, but Watkins is still looking for a contract that could pay him near $10 million annually...maybe more.

  Rams | Los Angeles signs 10 to futures deals    Mon Jan 8, 02:36 PM

The Los Angeles Rams signed WR Fred Brown, DT Omarius Bryant, C Jake Eldrenkamp, CB Dominique Hatfield, TE Henry Krieger-Coble, TE Johnny Mundt, CB Taurean Nixon, LB Ejuan Price, FB Sam Rogers and CB Marcus Sayles to Reserve/Future contracts. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Krieger-Coble is the player we're monitoring but only in super deep dynasty leagues. The former Iowa tight end is athletic and can create mismatches on the field. If he gains more weight, then perhaps he could end up making a dent as a pass-catcher for the Rams.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods caught nine passes on 14 targets for 142 yards in a 26-13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 6.

Footballguys view: Woods was dialed in for the Rams playoff game. His connection with QB Jared Goff should only get stronger in 2018.

  Rams | Todd Gurley tops 100 yards in loss    Sat Jan 6, 11:32 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 14 times for 101 yards and caught four passes for 10 yards in a 26-13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 6.

Footballguys view: Gurley did his part but it wasn't enough to get the win. The Rams got Gurley back on track this season, and he should be in line for similar production in 2018. That makes Gurley easily a first-round lock in fantasy drafts, and he could go no1 overall with his upside.

Footballguys view: The Rams are resting starters this week and will not be pushing for the #3 seed in the NFC bracket. Philadelphia might be the better playoff matchup anyway and potentially worth giving up the chance to host the NFC title game if the #1 and #2 seeds are eliminated.

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown is expected to make his first-ever start in the team's Week 17 game Sunday, Dec. 31, against the San Francisco 49ers, with RB Todd Gurley not playing.

Footballguys view: Brown is an excellent Week 17 RB2 candidate, getting all of the work in a matchup that had a final score of 41-39 the first time around. His game has grown this year and he can give teams something to think about when he hits free agency in 2019.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley is the third running back ever to gain at least 2,000 yards from scrimmage and at least 19 total touchdowns at 23 years old or younger. The other two running backs to accomplish the feat were Hall of Fame RBs Eric Dickerson and Emmitt Smith.

Footballguys view: Gurley won't play this weekend, in what could be a very nice matchup. Give the above numbers, though, the Rams are wise to leave him out of the lineup and keep him ready for the playoffs.
