Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff is in line for a new contract, and Rams general manager Les Snead told the Los Angeles Times on Friday, June 14, that the team has had 'preliminary discussions' with Goff's agent, Ryan Tollner, regarding a timeline for talks. Los Angeles Times, Rams G.M. Les Snead said Friday that the Rams have had 'preliminary discussions' with Tollner regarding a timeline for talks regarding Goff's deal. '(It's) nothing heavy,' Snead said of the communications. 'No heavy lifting.'
Huddle Up: Meanwhile, Goff is coming off his best fantasy season yet, finishing seventh overall among fantasy QBs, and he should be valued as a low-end QB1 for 2019.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) told reporters Tuesday, June 11, that he is 'fine' and 'doing the same kinds of things he's always done in the offseason. He also suggested the torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered in college was a 'bigger problem' for him coming out of college than his current issue.
Huddle Up: Owners probably won't know anything for sure until Week 1 since the Rams have made a habit of holding out their key players throughout the preseason. The Rams' actions this offseason - most notably, moving up to draft Darrell Henderson - would suggest there is some worry in the organization, but the continued focus on Gurley's knee could also allow him to be drafted this summer at a discount. Owners who don't mind a little risk could see huge rewards if/when he slips into the second round of drafts.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley may look to lose some weight in order to reduce some of the stress on his knee, and head coach Sean McVay said Gurley can do what he wants so he can feel comfortable with his knee.
Huddle Up: Gurley has missed most of the offseason workouts because of his knee and may see his touches drop this upcoming season because of his knee. Fantasy players should monitor his status during training camp to determine his status. He is a No. 1 running back when healthy but is a risky pick at this point.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley likely will not see any playing time during the preseason, according to general manager Les Snead.
Huddle Up: Gurley has been dealing with a knee issue since last season but should be ready for Week 1. He is a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues when healthy, but fantasy players should keep an eye on his status during training camp.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) reportedly plans on playing about six pounds lighter this season, according to NFL Network's Steve Wyche.
Huddle Up: The logic is easy to follow, less weight means less stress on the knees. Obviously the team, which will not have Gurley do any on-field drills during OTAs, and the player are doing everything they can to get him through the upcoming season. The million dollar question is will it work? At this point, the status of Gurley's knee might be the most interesting storyline in all of fantasy sports. He's still an RB1, but there are unique concerns.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) has been a regular at the team facility this offseason, according to head coach Sean McVay, despite his absence from organized team activities (OTAs) Tuesday, May 28. McVay added the team plans to hold him out of practice in the offseason.
Huddle Up: Gurley missed the final two games of the 2018 regular season and carried the ball a total of 16 times for 47 yards in the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl combined. His obvious upside will keep him as a high-end RB1, but there's reason to be concerned.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) said he is happy with the progress he is making in his rehab but does not want to put a timetable on his return. Head coach Sean McVay said the goal is for Kupp to be ready for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Kupp probably will not be on a practice field until training camp, so fantasy players should monitor his situation over the next few months. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when he is healthy and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in 2019.

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown has 'always been reliable' when called upon, according to RB Todd Gurley. 'If I go out, he's doing the exact same thing,' Gurley said.
Huddle Up: Brown averaged 4.9 yards per rush and 10.4 yards per catch in limited action last year, but if the Rams lighten Gurley's load a bit in 2019, Brown could surprise. At the very least, Gurley owners should snag Brown as a handcuff.
Posted 4/20/2019 6:04 pm UTC
Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff said he is not worried about his contract situation and believes he will receive a lucrative contract if he continues to play well. The Rams are expected to exercise the fifth-year option in Goff's contract this offseason.
Huddle Up: Goff is coming off a very successful 2019 season with 4,688 yards and 32 touchdowns in the regular season. He should have most of his receiving corps back next season and can be a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback.
Posted 4/15/2019 11:04 pm UTC
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) said his knee is feeling better and does not expect it to be a long-term issue.
Huddle Up: Gurley was limited during the playoffs because of his knee, but head coach Sean McVay said Gurley will have a big role in 2019. He should continue to be considered a No. 1 fantasy running back as long as he is healthy.
Posted 4/12/2019 9:04 pm UTC
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is making good progress in his rehab and hopefully will be ready to play in Week 1, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Kupp's progress during offseason workouts and training camp to see if he suffers any setbacks. He is a productive receiver in the Rams passing game when he is healthy and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in 2019.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) will 'continue to be a central piece of our offense and I don't see that changing,' head coach Sean McVay told The Rich Eisen Show on Friday, April 12.
Huddle Up: Gurley's long-term stock has taken a bit of a tumble since his knee injury in Week 15, although it hasn't helped matters that reports about a potential arthritic knee and his general manager making it a priority to reduce his workload have been so public. While the Rams would be wise to cut back a few of his reps and his durability may be a slight concern moving forward, Gurley will still be very much worth a top-five pick in fantasy drafts if he is ready to go this summer.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff's potential contract extension isn't a top priority currently, according to head coach Sean McVay. 'Whether it happens this year, next year, those are things we haven't really gotten into in depth about yet,' McVay said.
Huddle Up: Goff had one of the worst Super Bowl performances in recent memory, but his regular season was stellar. Another season of over 4,600 yards and 30+ touchdowns should get him that extension. He's comfortably in QB1 territory heading into his fourth season.

Los Angeles Rams restricted free-agent RB Malcolm Brown's two-year, $3.25 million offer sheet by the Detroit Lions was matched by the Rams Friday, March 22. He'll receive a $100,000 signing bonus and $1 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Brown will be an option late in drafts to handcuff to Todd Gurley, but he could also carve a niche in the offense to keep Gurley fresh early in the season.
Posted 3/22/2019 1:03 am UTC
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) said his recovery is where it is 'supposed to be' at this point in the process.
Huddle Up: Kupp is expected to be ready for the start of the 2019 season. He was Jared Goff's go-to target on third downs and in the red zone prior to the injury, and Kupp should be able to deliver WR2 numbers, especially in PPR formats.
Posted 3/08/2019 5:03 pm UTC
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is expected to released before March 17 when he is due a $1 million roster bonus, in the opinion of a team beat writer.
Huddle Up: Blake Bortles had his QB1 fantasy moments over the last few seasons in J'ville, but he's likely headed for a stint of backup duty in a new locale.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) is dealing with arthritis in his knee, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gurley was limited during the playoffs because of his knee, so owners will need to keep an eye on his situation. He is one of the best running backs in the NFL when he is healthy and can still be a No. 1 fantasy back in 2019.
Posted 3/01/2019 5:03 pm UTC
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley left knee is a concern for the organization, and he currently is participating in an offseason regimen to get it ready for the 2019 season. However, if the regimen doesn't work or Gurley's knee regresses, the team may consider stem-cell treatment, a source said Friday, March 1.
Huddle Up: Whether the Rams will ever admit it or not, Gurley definitely wasn't at full health during the postseason in which he averaged only 11.3 touches per game after averaging double that (22.5) during the 14 contests he played during the regular season. For now Gurley remains a RB1 fantasy option, but that could change depending on the course of his offseason health reports.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley will likely have his workload monitored more often moving forward, according to comments made by general manager Les Snead on Thursday, Feb. 28. 'I think where we have to go is to fast forward to now is with Todd, he's had a lot of carries since he's come in the league, a lot of yards, a lot of touchdowns ... things like that. Obviously, senior year, junior year, Georgia, (tore) the ACL, so over that time there's an element of wear and tear and I think we have to determine in probably two stages: are we going to give him the amount of load that he's had in the past or are we going to lessen that load to let's say keep him fresher for the season and for the seasons beyond. If you go that route, you have to have a good, let's call it Batman and Robin combination or add another superhero figure into that and figure how you're going to do it. ... It's something we want to be intentional about and proactive,' Snead said.
Huddle Up: Gurley has amassed 1,229 touches over the first four years of his pro career, so Snead isn't kidding about his odometer. Conversely, he won't turn 25 years old until August, which is about the time most running back begin to hit their prime. While Gurley isn't in any danger of losing significant work anytime soon, the Rams would probably like to find a back they trust enough to use for a series or two. Gurley is still easily worth considering at No. 1 in fantasy drafts, but he is not a consensus pick at that spot.
Posted 2/28/2019 2:02 pm UTC
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Kupp looks to be a lock for a WR2 spot in PPR formats.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) was 'more hurt than we thought' and could have been dealing with a sprained knee as opposed to knee inflammation, as head coach Sean McVay and the team indicated during the season, according to comments made by C.J. Anderson on Fox Sports 1's 'Undisputed' on Tuesday, Feb. 19. 'The injury was a little bit more than what everybody in the building thought, including himself. ... Yeah, he'd never really tell me. ... I would say sprained knee. Obviously, it's the same knee injury he's had before in his career. Obviously, I had surgery on my meniscus and once you have a knee, you always have a knee. So it aggravates and if he was getting a lot of touches earlier in the year -- obviously him being one of the best backs, that probably was the case,' Anderson said.
Huddle Up: Gurley's lack of usage down the stretch suggests either he or McVay did not feel the back was not anywhere close to fully healthy. While Anderson admits he has no way to know for sure, a sprained knee can be a serious enough injury to keep Gurley from being able to or wanting to handle a full load. The 24-year-old should be able to enjoy a normal offseason - even if did suffer a knee sprain - and figures to be a fantasy stalwart again in 2019.

The Los Angeles Rams intend on discussing an extension with QB Jared Goff during the offseason, according to MMQB's Albert Breer, though Breer says the team is not in a hurry to get something done.
Huddle Up: While fantasy owners' final image of Goff was his terrible Super Bowl performance you shouldn't get fixated on one bad game. The return of Cooper Kupp should help stabilize Goff, who'll have another season under his belt. He's a surefire QB1 for 2019.
Posted 2/05/2019 8:02 pm UTC
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) does not need any medical procedures on the knee that bothered him later in the season. Gurley and the Rams went through physical examinations Tuesday, Feb. 5, but head coach Sean McVay said he had not talked to team trainers about those exams yet.
Huddle Up: Gurley's Super Bowl usage was quizzical, especially since he and the Rams claim that he was not hurt. If C.J. Anderson maintains his complementary role then it will be difficult to select Gurley with the first overall pick in 2019 drafts.
Posted 2/04/2019 4:02 am UTC
Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds caught three passes on seven targets for 28 yards in Super Bowl LIII against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Reynolds was elevated when Cooper Kupp went down, and though he had his moments, Reynolds clearly isn't the player that Kupp is. Look for Reynolds to head back down the depth chart in 2019.
Posted 2/04/2019 3:02 am UTC
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley said he wasn't limited physically against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII and credited the New England defense for dominating the line of scrimmage.
Huddle Up: At this point, Gurley owners would probably welcome some sort of injury to justify his limited role throughout the playoffs. Gurley has been a workhorse and a fantasy force the last two years, but if the Rams bring back C.J. Anderson, it will be interesting to see how touches are split in 2019.
Posted 2/04/2019 2:02 am UTC
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks caught eight of his 13 targets for 120 yards in a 13-3 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.
Huddle Up: Cooks was the lone bright spot on offense for the Rams in an otherwise terrible performance. He can be a little big-play dependent at times, but he will remain a WR2 candidate for 2019.
Posted 2/04/2019 2:02 am UTC
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods caught five of his 10 targets for 70 yards and added a five-yard run in a 13-3 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.
Huddle Up: It was an atrocious performance for the offense overall, but Woods managed to post a decent line. He was one of the steadiest receivers all season, and he will head into 2019 as a WR2.
