  Browns | John Kelly inks futures deal with Cleveland    Tue Jan 19, 03:36 PM

Free-agent RB John Kelly signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday, Jan. 19.

Footballguys view: Kelly followed up Alvin Kamara at the University of Tennessee, and he looked good as a college back for the Volunteers. His pro career has not gone as planned with Kelly having bounced around to a few different rosters in a short amount of time. His all-purpose skill set will keep us watching him but only in super deep dynasty formats.

  Rams | LAR waives 17 players    Fri Sep 4, 03:55 PM

Los Angeles Rams CB Adonis Alexander, LB Daniel Bituli, TE Kendall Blanton, C Cohl Cabral, OG Jamil Demby, WR Earnest Edwards, S Jake Gervase, PK Lirim Hajrullahu, S Juju Hughes, RB John Kelly, OG Jeremiah Kolone, WR JJ Koski, CB Dayan Lake, PK Austin MacGinnis, S Tyrique McGhee, LB Derrick Moncrief and WR Easop Winston were waived Friday, Sept. 4.

Footballguys view: The Rams drafted Kelly in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL draft. He came out of the University of Tennessee after following in Alvin Kamara's footsteps for the Volunteers. Kelly has not been able to latch on much or impress during his time with the Rams. He's a naturally talented runner who might be bound for a practice squad either with the Rams or somewhere else.

  Rams | Sean McVay talks up RBBC again    Tue Jul 21, 11:38 PM

Los Angeles Rams RBs Cam Akers, Darrell Henderson, John Kelly and Malcolm Brown will likely be expected to begin the season in a committee, as head coach Sean McVay specifically mentioned the way the San Francisco 49ers used their running backs last season as a model for what he hopes the Rams will attempt to do at the position in 2020.'I think it'll just naturally work itself out. I think if you look at that success San Fran had last year with that running back-by-committee approach. What I thought Kyle (Shanahan) and their players did a great job of is, 'Hey, we're going to have an open-mind approach, we're going to be committed to trying to have some balance and then we'll go with the hot hand or whoever really expresses himself as deserving of the carries,' McVay said on The Helliepod.

Footballguys view: This is a nightmare for Fantasy GMs who are looking for value. The Rams have talented backs who do things each a little differently but they're not going to pick one to lead the way. In addition to a RBBC, this situation could turn into the dreaded 'hot hand' approach which is incredibly difficult for Fantasy GMs to navigate. The rookie Akers is the first Rams running back coming off the board with a current ADP of RB26 (5.06) followed up by Henderson at RB50 (10.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Rams | Darrell Henderson to IR    Sat Dec 28, 04:14 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 28. RB John Kelly was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of Memphis in the 2019 NFL draft, Henderson didn't do much in his rookie season working as a backup to Todd Gurley. He finishes his rookie year with 39 carries for 147 yards on the ground with four catches for 37 yards. We appreciate him in dynasty formats still and look to see if he can improve as his career goes on.

  Rams | John Kelly let go    Sat Nov 16, 04:54 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB John Kelly was waived Saturday, Nov. 16.

Footballguys view: Kelly was a sixth-round pick of the Rams in the 2018 NFL draft. He followed up Alvin Kamara at the University of Tennessee and was a player Fantasy GMs were monitoring in deep dynasty formats. He might land back on the practice squad as the team made room for WR Nsimba Webster on the active roster on Saturday, thus opening up a practice squad spot.

  Rams | John Kelly added to active roster    Sat Oct 12, 04:02 PM

Los Angeles Rams practice squad RB John Kelly was signed to the 53-man roster Saturday, Oct. 12. The team also waived WR Nsimba Webster.

Footballguys view: The team needed depth at the running back position with Todd Gurley (quadriceps) down for Week 6. Kelly followed Alvin Kamara at the University of Tennessee but he's failed to do much so far in the pros. He was a sixth-round pick of the Rams in the 2018 NFL draft.
