  Rams | Todd Gurley's foot OK    Fri Feb 5, 11:30 AM

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (foot) said all is well with his foot Friday, Feb. 5, and he's doing offseason training in Los Angeles.

Footballguys view: Gurley greatly exceeded expectations in 2015 after returning to the field less than a year after he tore his ACL. The Rams passing game was absolutely putrid and Gurley was still a major difference maker in fantasy leagues. Any incremental improvement could turn him into a truly elite fantasy running back capable of winning any week for you on his own.

  Rams | Peyton Manning drawing Rams interest    Wed Feb 3, 10:40 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is receiving interest from the Los Angeles Rams if he decides to play in 2016. The Rams have had internal discussions about pursuing Manning if he opts to play next season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Manning is going to have time to decide whether or not he wants to retire after Super Bowl 50. While his time in Denver may be done, we could see him choose to play elsewhere for one last season in 2016.

  Rams | Key defenders looking at free agency    Mon Feb 1, 03:45 PM

St. Louis Rams DT Nick Fairley, DE William Hayes, SS Mark Barron, DE Eugene Sims, FS Rodney McLeod and CBs Trumaine Johnson and Janoris Jenkins will enter free agency this offseason if they are not re-signed. McLeod is a restricted free agent while the rest are unrestricted free agents.

Footballguys view: According to OverTheCap.com, the Rams are set to have $32 million in cap space. That's a lot of money to be active in free agency, but it may not be enough to keep everyone listed above.

  Rams | Case Keenum staying put    Fri Jan 29, 09:26 PM

Los Angeles Rams impending restricted free-agent QB Case Keenum is going to be back with the team in 2016, according to general manager Les Snead. 'We're not going to let him go somewhere else,' Snead said.

Footballguys view: Keenum gives them veteran depth at the position behind starter Nick Foles. We could see 2016 as a make-or-break year for Foles, and if he struggles the team may turn the offense over to Keenum for a bit.

  Rams | Jason Michael hired by Rams    Mon Jan 18, 10:46 AM

Former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Jason Michael was hired by the St. Louis Rams Monday, Jan. 18, as either tight ends coach or passing game coordinator.

Footballguys view: Michael was able to get some good passing game production out of Marcus Mariota with Mariota's limited experience and an underwhelming supporting cast in the passing game. He can't hurt the Rams ailing passing game.

St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley led all NFL running backs with five runs of 40 or more yards this season.

Footballguys view: Gurley is a stud...a superstar back who can shine in an era of RBBC. We're not going to recommend many RBs for the first round of your fantasy drafts next year, but Gurley will be one of them.

  Rams | Case Keenum enters offseason as starter    Mon Jan 4, 08:30 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum enters the offseason as the starting quarterback, head coach Jeff Fisher said Monday, Jan. 4. He said QB Nick Foles will get a chance to compete, and the team will also evaluate outside options.

Footballguys view: Outside options mean anyone outside the building. We have a feeling the Rams will search high and low for help at the QB position. With the 15th-overall pick, selecting a QB in the 2016 NFL draft could also be an option.

  Rams | Todd Gurley not expected to play    Sat Jan 2, 08:39 AM

St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (foot) is not expected to play in the Week 17 game against the San Francisco 49ers. Gurley is listed as doubtful for the game.

Footballguys view: It's too bad that we're not going to see Gurley one more time in 2015. He's an amazing talent who looks like he'll be the next superstar back in the NFL. Gurley finishes his rookie season with 1,108 yards rushing, 10 rushing touchdowns, and 188 yards receiving. While many things could change with the Rams this offseason, having Gurley as the centerpiece of the offense should not.

  Rams | Long-term approach with Todd Gurley    Sat Jan 2, 12:04 AM

St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (foot) is listed as doubtful to face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17, and head coach Jeff Fisher said he doesn't want to chance making the injury worse. 'We're thinking about the long-term future,' Fisher said Friday, Jan 1. 'He's got an issue he's dealing with and we're still doing tests. The difference between him playing and making things worse could be the difference between 6-8 weeks of rehab during the offseason. Right now we got really good news and good results but it's doubtful that he plays Sunday.'

  Rams | Todd Gurley in walking boot    Fri Jan 1, 08:04 AM

St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley (foot) has been in a walking boot this week, but head coach Jeff Fisher said Gurley doesn't have to practice to play in Week 17.

Footballguys view: If he's active, you play him, but Gurley is also playing in a late game, so have a hedge for Week 17 Super Bowls. Tre Mason would only be a what the heck flex in his place and both Benny Cunningham and practice squad call-up Malcolm Brown should see work too.

  Rams | Malcolm Brown promoted    Thu Dec 31, 10:06 PM

St. Louis Rams RB Malcolm Brown was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Thursday, Dec. 31.

Footballguys view: Brown flashed this preseason and he's a hard charging low center of gravity runner who fits right in the Rams style of running game. He could flash against the 49ers too, putting him on the radar in deep dynasty leagues.

Footballguys view: Gurley was held in check by the Bucs stiff run defense and failed to convert a second score he had multiple opportunities to put in from inside the three-yard line. It was still at least adequate, if not moderately successful in a bleak running back landscape this week.

  Rams | St. Louis committed to Todd Gurley?    Tue Dec 15, 04:22 PM

St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley took the game over against the Detroit Lions in Week 14, running for 140 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries, good for an average of 8.8 yards per carry. 'If you give him enough opportunities, he's going to find a way. Rob (Boras, the new offensive coordinator) changed some runs, we made some adjustments at halftime, and they were solid adjustments. Most of his runs, there were a lot of people on the line of scrimmage,' head coach Jeff Fisher said. Gurley went into halftime with just 13 yards on seven carries.

Footballguys view: The Rams entire offense revolves around Gurley. He's their bellcow, and as we saw last week he's able to take over a game and be incredibly relevant for fantasy owners. Gurley is at least a low-end RB1 each week, and he could help you win your fantasy championship.
