  Rams | Joe Barry sticking with Rams    Thu Jan 16, 07:43 PM

Los Angeles Rams associate head coach and linebackers coach Joe Barry turned down an offer to become defensive coordinator at USC and signed a new contract to remain in his current role with the Rams Thursday, Jan. 16, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Barry was considered a possible defensive coordinator for the Rams after Wade Phillips was let go, but instead he will work for new hire Brandon Staley.

  Rams | Franchise tag an option for Dante Fowler    Tue Jan 14, 07:20 PM

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent DE Dante Fowler is a candidate for the franchise tag this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Lindsey Thiry.

Footballguys view: Fowler posted career-best numbers in his first full season with the Rams. In 2019, Fowler appeared in 16 games finishing with 58 total tackles and 11.5 sacks. The franchise tag would pay him around $15 million on a one-year deal.

  Rams | Kevin O'Connell nearing deal with LA Rams    Fri Jan 10, 09:06 PM

Former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell is reportedly finalizing a deal to become the new offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Scott Turner was hired as OC with Washington and that left O'Connell considering other options. The Rams is an interesting landing spot as head coach Sean McVay had served as his own OC since he took over in 2017. O'Connell did some good work with rookie QB Dwayne Haskins and should be able to build a strong relationship with Jared Goff.

  Rams | Wade Phillips done with the LA Rams    Mon Jan 6, 01:52 PM

Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will reportedly not return to the team next season, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Things tend to go this way with Phillips as a defensive coordinator. The Rams defense was solid as per usual with Phillips but the team just wants to go in a different direction. Phillips should have no problem latching on with a new team for 2020.

  Rams | Eric Weddle contemplating retirement?    Mon Dec 30, 01:05 PM

Los Angeles Rams S Eric Weddle (shoulder, knee) has yet to make an official decision about his playing future, but he already knows he has no interest in returning to the team as a backup. He also noted that he has some injuries that need to get taken care of before he can make a firm decision to return for another season.'I'm not going to come back to be a backup, and that's totally fine. That's what I would expect them to do, and so, if that's the case, then it will be it for me. ... I think it's a foregone conclusion. ... We've got some good, young players. So, we'll see. Nothing is set in stone, but I've had a great run. No regrets, baby,' Weddle said.

  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 | Tyler Higbee has trust of QB    Thu Dec 26, 09:28 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff said he trusts TE Tyler Higbee 'as much as anybody' in the offense. 'He does have that big frame, that big wingspan,' Goff said. 'I can kind of throw it anywhere near him he's got great hands, he's shown all that. We do like using him on stuff where I can miss a little bit at times. He can make that play.'

Footballguys view: Higbee had as good a run as a fantasy tight end as we've seen all year once Gerald Everett got hurt. He was signed to a long term extension earlier this year, but Everett will be back next year for the last year of his rookie deal, so Higbee's 2020 fantasy outlook will be tough to determine.

  Rams | Darrell Henderson likely to go on IR    Mon Dec 23, 06:00 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) likely will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list because of the high ankle sprain he suffered in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Henderson, a third-round pick out of Memphis in the 2019 NFL draft, has appeared in seven games and has rushed for 147 yards and a meager 3.8 yards per carry. Henderson will need to undergo surgery to repair the injury.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee caught nine of his 11 targets for 104 yards in a 34-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16, becoming the fourth tight end to top 100 yards in four consecutive games.

Footballguys view: Higbee stayed hot even though he got banged up in the game. Gerald Everett's return didn't slow him down. It will be difficult to determine how the Rams will deploy their talented tight end duo in 2020.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp scores again    Sat Dec 21, 11:40 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught all four of his targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16, and he has caught a touchdown in four straight games.

Footballguys view: Kupp's fantasy stock fell off a cliff in the second half of the year. His touchdown salvaged something, but he has gone from the centerpiece of the Rams pass offense to a complement in the second half of the year.

  Rams | Rare TD for Brandin Cooks    Sat Dec 21, 11:35 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks caught four of his six targets for 39 yards and a touchdown, his second of the year, in a 34-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Cooks finally did something of note for fantasy after his second concussion cost him time and prominence in the game plan. He'll be a tough player to fix the value of in early 2020 drafts.

  Rams | Robert Woods tops 100 yards    Sat Dec 21, 11:29 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods caught eight of his 11 targets for 117 yards in a 34-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Woods bounced back with a big game and has been mostly excellent since missing a game for personal reasons.

  Rams | Two scores for Todd Gurley    Sat Dec 21, 11:25 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 15 times for 48 yards and two touchdowns and failed to catch either of his targets in a 34-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Gurley wasn't impressive but he was able to win a race to the pylon and get a short score to make fantasy teams that trusted him happy in Week 16. He will be a player falling in 2020 drafts despite a better performance in 2019 than we expected after his first few games.

  Rams | Jared Goff solid in loss    Sat Dec 21, 11:22 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 27 of his 46 pass attempts for 326 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 34-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Goff was effective from the get go and exorcised the memory of his 78-yard performance against San Francisco in the first matchup, but it wasn't enough to keep the Rams playoff hopes alive. He has fallen out of the QB1 ranks heading into 2020.
