  Rams | Four draft picks signed by LAR    Sun May 16, 08:57 AM

The Los Angeles Rams announced the signings of RB Jake Funk, WR Ben Skowronek, DE Earnest Brown and LB Chris Garrett to rookie contracts Sunday, May 16. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Funk is a hard-charging running back with some burst to break off chunk plays. He suffered an ACL injury to the same knee in 2018 and 2019 so durability is a concern. Funk will work primarily as a special teams player but if given the opportunity there is some natural skill that could be used on offense.

  Rams | Tutu Atwell agrees to terms    Fri May 14, 06:32 PM

Los Angeles Rams second-round draft choice WR Tutu Atwell agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Rams Friday, May 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Atwell is explosive and can take short passes and turn them into long gains. He's incredibly small (165 pounds) but not many defenders get a chance to get a big hit on him. Atwell relies on his speed and explosiveness and lacks nuance as a route runner. Most of his snaps were from the slot, and over the last two years about 25 percent of his passes were behind the line of scrimmage. He's a gadget player but working with Sean McVay makes Atwell a player to watch.

  Rams | Darrell Henderson to play second fiddle?    Fri Apr 23, 10:02 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson will have a 'complementary' role in the backfield behind RB Cam Akers this season, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Akers should be a RB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2021. Henderson is a high-value handcuff who can get some part-time work as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Akers has a current ADP of RB15 (2.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Rams | DeSean Jackson headed to LAR    Sun Mar 21, 08:45 PM

Free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles) agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Rams Sunday, March 21.

Footballguys view: Jackson still has a ton of speed and he'll use that to take the top off the defense with the Rams. He's worked with Sean McVay before dating back to their days with Washington. If healthy, Jackson can still be a threat for an offense.

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Josh Reynolds is not expected to re-sign with the Rams this offseason.

Footballguys view: Reynolds has flashed a bit during his time with the Rams. A fourth-round pick out of Texas A&M in the 2017 NFL draft, Reynolds should find work as a backup receiver on the outside. We'll monitor his landing spot in deep dynasty formats.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp tough to bring down    Sun Feb 28, 08:00 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led all receivers with 21 avoided tackles after receptions in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: That's always been Kupp's game, so it's no surprised that advanced data shows those type of numbers. Expect more of the same, but perhaps with improved production overall from Kupp and the Rams passing game due to new starting quarterback Matthew Stafford.

  Rams | Cam Akers struggled with efficiency    Fri Feb 26, 10:40 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers ranked 11th in rushing yards over the final five weeks of the season, but his 4.0 yards per carry in that stretch were the fewest among players ranked in the top 20 in rushing.

Footballguys view: That number, 4.0 yards per carry, shows how teams were drilling down on the Rams rushing attack. It's not a terrible number, but it is lower than Akers had earlier in the season. He should benefit from the arrival of veteran QB Matthew Stafford. The new QB should take a lot of pressure off the ground game.

  Rams | Coach sees Cam Akers as every down back    Thu Feb 25, 03:46 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers is an every down running back in the NFL, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Footballguys view: Akers can be a three-down back so long as he stays healthy. The Rams need to use him more as a receiver going forward as Akers only had 11 catches as a rookie in 2020. He finished the year as the no.40 fantasy running back (standard-scoring leagues) but only played 11 games. With a full season and more usage as a receiver out of the backfield, Akers could post top-10 numbers.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods leads all wide receivers with 1,089 yards after the catch since the start of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus data.

Footballguys view: The Rams offense got a shot in the arm when they traded for QB Matthew Stafford. That means things could look even better for Woods in 2021. Woods finished as the no.13 fantasy receiver (standard-scoring leagues) in 2020 even though he did not post 1,000 yards receiving.

  Rams | Marvin Jones eyeing reunion with QB?    Wed Feb 17, 09:38 PM

Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Marvin Jones has expressed interest in joining the Los Angeles Rams to reunite with QB Matthew Stafford, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Jones had a great connection with Stafford but as things always do in free agency - it comes down to price. Will the Rams, with Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods, be interested in paying Jones a premium price? Yes, they may lose Josh Reynolds as an unrestricted free agent but that doesn't mean they'll take Jones for what could be a better-than-expected contract. Stay tuned.

  Rams | Matthew Stafford's current deal unlikely to change    Sun Jan 31, 10:25 AM

QB Matthew Stafford's contract is not expected to change as a result of his recent trade from the Detroit Lions to the Los Angeles Rams, meaning that he will not receive an extension or a raise. He has two years left on his current deal and is slated to earn $43 million.

Footballguys view: Stafford's numbers are incredibly low (basically $21 million per year) for the current quarterback market. The Rams are in 'win now' mode with this aggressive move to get Stafford. We'll see if they can do that, and his contract is certainly not going to be an issue for bringing talent in at other positions.

  Rams | Matthew Stafford headed to L.A.    Sat Jan 30, 10:13 PM

The Los Angeles Rams have agreed to acquire QB Matthew Stafford from the Detroit Lions in exchange for QB Jared Goff, a 2021 third-round pick, a 2022 first-round pick and a 2023 first-round pick, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Rams wanted to move on from Goff by any means necessary. They were able to do that but it will cost them in the future. Stafford now takes over an offense with explosive players and a bright mind in Sean McVay running the show. He should be a QB1 for Fantasy GMs in 2021 as the Rams made an aggressive 'win now' move to add the veteran passer.

  Rams | Matthew Stafford, LA Rams have mutual interest    Fri Jan 29, 05:35 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford reportedly considers the Los Angeles Rams 'a viable contender in his trade market,' according to multiple sources. The Rams have also reportedly 'explored the possibilities' with Stafford despite not knowing what they can do with Jared Goff's long-term contract on the books.

Footballguys view: The Lions are in a position as a rebuilding team to take on Goff's onerous contract, possibly in exchange for additional draft capital. The Rams desire to make a change at quarterback the offseason seems to almost be as strong as Deshaun Watson's desire to change teams.
