Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson is an 'every-down back,' according to comments made by head coach Sean McVay on Monday, July 26. Per McVay, it has never been an 'ability' question but 'how do we keep him available?' To that end, Henderson is not expected to play at all during the preseason.
Huddle Up: Henderson has compiled less than 200 touches since entering the league as a third-round pick in 2019, yet he has suffered two high-ankle sprains - which have kept him from finishing out both seasons - and a hamstring pull. In other words, McVay's concerns are warranted. It seems like a strong bet Henderson's workload will be monitored closely throughout the first half of the season before McVay makes a decision on whether he is healthy enough to be featured. Henderson should be drafted as a low-end RB2 with upside.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' while training Monday, July 19, and he'll miss the entire 2021 season.
Huddle Up: Darrell Henderson's value skyrockets to RB2 territory unless the team decides to bring in more outside help. There is little on the roster in terms of established backs, and it's very likely they'll bring someone else in that has more PPR prowess to complement Henderson.

Los Angeles Rams WR DeSean Jackson is considered the leading candidate for the No. 3 receiver job entering training camp.
Huddle Up: Jackson has struggled with injuries over the last few seasons but is still a deep threat when healthy. He should see consistent targets in the passing game if he is a top-three receiver and could be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (undisclosed) was limited during offseason workouts because an undisclosed injury but should be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Huddle Up: Akers is in line to receive most of the work at running back this season and should see plenty of touches each game. He can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues in 2021.

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford was receiving trade interest from the San Francisco 49ers before he was acquired by the Rams, according to 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: The 49ers will have either Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance start this season, so fantasy players can monitor the situation during training camp. The winner of the starting job can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback. Stafford can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in leagues.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp said Wednesday, June 2, that it was a Morel-Lavalle'e lesion -- in which skin and tissue separate from underlying tissue -- in his knee which kept him out of the team's NFC divisional round playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers in January. Kupp added, though, that he has had no issues afterward, and is 'feeling great' as he participates in the team's offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Kupp had a fantasy down year in 2020 following his top-10 WR season the season before, and it was mainly due to his dropoff from 10 to three receiving TDs. If he stays healthy, Kupp has legit WR2 bounce-back potential with new QB Matthew Stafford now under center.

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford (thumb) recently underwent a procedure on the thumb on his throwing hand, but the procedure was considered minor, according to a source.

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

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led all receivers with 21 avoided tackles after receptions in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Kupp finished just shy of 1,000 yards last year, but he topped 90 catches for the second season in a row. His touchdown total dipped from 10 to three, but the addition of quarterback Matthew Stafford should raise Kupp's ceiling. Consider him a WR2 with upside.

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.
Huddle Up: Akers emerged as the lead back for the Rams down the stretch, logging at least 15 carries in each of the final four games of the regular season and recording 46 more carries in two playoff contests. If he maintains a similar role in 2021, he should at least be a volume-based RB2.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers is an every down running back in the NFL, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Akers dealt with some injuries during the season but played well when in uniform and could be the main running back for the Rams next season. He can be a No. 2 fantasy back if he receives most of the work.

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.
Huddle Up: Woods needed that YAC in 2020 as he finished tied for 11th among wideouts with 90 catches (a career high) but still finished 26th at the position with 936 yards. We'll see if the Rams' offensive structure changes any with QB Matthew Stafford now at the helm, but Woods figures to remain a solid WR2 draft prospect regardless.

Incoming Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford told the Detroit Lions that he was not interested in being traded to the New England Patriots, according to a source. The Lions have agreed to trade Stafford to the Rams.
Huddle Up: The Patriots had been linked to Stafford over the last few weeks but will have to look for other options. The next quarterback for the Patriots may only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback depending on what they add at receiver and tight end this offseason. Stafford will have a good receiving corps to work with in 2021 and can be a low-end No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford will likely be traded this offseason, and the New England Patriots are one of the two 'front-runners' due to their quarterback need and favorable salary cap situation, according to a recent article written for The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Stafford projects as a high-end QB2 most anywhere he lands, but the Patriots would be more concerning than most given their current crop of underwhelming pass-catchers.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford has garnered interest from about one-third of the NFL, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, who opines the team could get a first-round pick for him.
Huddle Up: Stafford was 15th in fantasy points at the position this year even after playing all 16 games. The position has deepened, especially with dual-threat options, and it's hard to see him landing anywhere that will make him more than a low-end QB1 or high-end backup in fantasy.

Huddle Up: Cam Newton is not expected to return to the Patriots, so the team will be looking for a new quarterback this offseason. Stafford will be a starter no matter where he plays and can be at least a high-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) on Saturday, Jan. 16, was declared inactive for the divisional-round playoff game with the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: A big blow to Jared Goff and the Rams' offense as the team's leading receiver will miss his second game in the last three weeks. It also means that there figures to be more targets to go around for fellow wideouts Robert Woods, Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson along with TEs Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is considered a 'true game-time decision' for the NFC Divisional Round game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Jan. 16, according to a source. The team is not expected to make a final decision on his status until pregame warmups.
Huddle Up: Kupp did not practice at all during the week because of knee bursitis but was listed as questionable on the injury report. Fantasy owners who are considering using Kupp for their lineups this weekend should continue to monitor updates on his status leading up to the game. If he is declared inactive, WR Robert Woods is a good bet to see at least 10 targets versus the Packers tonight, with WR Van Jefferson likely to see the majority of slot snaps that would normally go to Kupp.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) did not practice all week and is listed as questionable for the NFC Divisional Round game against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Despite not getting in any work during the week, it's hard to imagine Kupp sitting out. With that said, it's fair to wonder how effective he'll be if he plays. If he is unable to play, Robert Woods would become a strong bet for 10 targets, while Van Jefferson would likely handle the majority of slot snaps Kupp usually gets. If Kupp is made inactive, Cam Akers and Woods will be the only Rams worth using in most fantasy formats.
