Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown (finger) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Brown will share playing time with Darrell Henderson and probably will receive the carries around the goal line. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues, but fantasy players may have better options available.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Akers will not travel with the team this weekend, but head coach Sean McVay seemed to suggest the rookie has a respectable shot to play in Week 4. With Malcolm Brown dealing with a fractured pinky finger, the Rams could lean on Darrell Henderson, who could find himself with enough volume to serve as a low-end RB2 or high-end flex.

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown (finger) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Brown is on track to play this week and likely will share playing time with Darrell Henderson. Brown can be a flex option in deeper standard leagues.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers (ribs) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Akers probably will not be able to play if he does not practice Friday, Sept. 24. Fantasy players should look for other options to use and keep Akers on the bench.

St. Louis Rams RB Darrell Henderson is healthy and ready to step up in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills with fellow RBs Malcolm Brown (finger) and Cam Akers (rib) ailing.
Huddle Up: Akers and Brown each missed practice, so Henderson could shoulder the entire load on Sunday. However, he faces a difficult defense, as the Bills rank third in the NFL with just 75.5 rushing yards per game allowed. Treat Henderson as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams if he draws the start.

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown (finger) didn't practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Brown's expected to play Sunday after undergoing surgery. He's likely to serve as the No. 2 behind Darrell Henderson for at least Week 3.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers (ribs) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Akers has likely fallen behind both Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson for now, but he's still the most appealing long-term option in keeper and dynasty leagues. He's best left on the waiver wire in re-draft leagues, though.

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown (finger) had surgery to repair his left pinkie finger Monday, Sept. 20, but he's expected to play in Week 3.
Huddle Up: The Rams are iffy on Cam Akers (ribs), which means Brown and Darrell Henderson are in line for more work. The Rams cascade running backs, but both are flex options next week with the slight edge to Henderson due to health.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers (rib) is considered day-to-day because of separated rib cartilage, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor Akers' practice participation during the week to see if he will be able to play in Week 3. Akers would only be a possible flex option if he is cleared to play.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods rushed for 19 yards and one touchdown on three carries against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. He also caught two passes for 14 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Woods was not a big factor in the passing game but held his fantasy value with a rushing touchdown. He should be able to post better numbers next week and can be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee caught five passes for 54 yards and three touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Higbee made the most out of his targets this week and has caught eight of his nine targets over the first two games. He should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues next week against the Buffalo Bills.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught five passes for 81 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. He also rushed for 19 yards on two carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Kupp bounced back from a quiet Week 1 performance and led the team in targets with six. He will continue to be one of the main options in the passing game and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver next week.

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown rushed for 47 yards on 11 carries against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Brown split the carries with Darrell Henderson during the game and will continue to be part of the committee at the position. He could be a possible flex option next week against the Buffalo Bills.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson rushed for 81 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. He also caught two passes for 40 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Henderson is part of the committee at running back for the Rams but could receive more work if Cam Akers misses time with his injury. He can be considered at least a flex option in fantasy leagues next week.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff went 20-for-27 for 267 yards and three touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Goff was held out of the end zone last week but was able to find Tyler Higbee three times for touchdowns in Week 2. He will be facing the Buffalo Bills next week and may only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues and very deep standard leagues.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers (rib) will not return to the Week 2 game because of the rib injury he suffered during the game.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should receive an update in Akers' status in the next few days. Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson will split the playing time if Akers misses any time. Brown can be a No. 2 running back or flex option, while Henderson has a chance to be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods should sign a contract extension 'very shortly,' head coach Sean McVay said Thursday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Woods has emerged as one of the steadier receivers the last couple of years, and he opened the season with six grabs for 105 yards. If he stays with the Rams, he should be a safe bet for WR2 production for the foreseeable future.

Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett (back) didn't practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Everett is a low-end TE2 when both he and Tyler Higbee are healthy. It will be tough to tell which one will produce more in any given matchup.

Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett (back) left the Week 1 game briefly with a back injury, but head coach Sean McVay said he's OK.
Huddle Up: Everett had just one catch for seven yards on two targets. He should be dropped in shallow leagues, but if you have the space, he wouldn't be a bad stash because any Rams receiver could be highlighted any week.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp will be the team's punt returner moving forward, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Kupp will still have a significant role in the passing game even if he is the main punt returner. Kupp can be at least a No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues this week.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee had three receptions for 40 yards against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Sept. 13.
Huddle Up: A fantasy darling after an unstoppable December, Higbee looked more like the player he was for his first nine games of 2019 when he averaged 2.9 catches and 24 yards per contest. It's just one game, though, so keep him active and hope for a better showing against the Eagles in Week 2.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught four passes for 40 yards in a Week 1 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Kupp took a backseat to Robert Woods on Sunday Night Football with just four receptions -- he surpassed that number in 11 of his 16 games last season. While not an ideal way to start the season, Kupp is entrenched as one of Jared Goff's top targets and is a strong WR2.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods had six receptions for 105 yards against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Sept. 13.
Huddle Up: Woods was the main man in LA's passing attack Sunday night, leading the team in targets (eight), receptions and receiving yards -- the latter two he more than doubled the next-highest producer. Some weeks it'll be his night. Others will belong to Cooper Kupp. It all works out to Woods as a steady WR2 with weekly upside.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers gained 39 yards on 14 carries against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1. He also had a four-yard reception.
Huddle Up: Viewed as the best fantasy option in LA's backfield, Akers turned his 15 touches into just 43 yards while Malcolm Brown topped 100 total yards and scored twice. From a production standpoint it was disappointing. In terms of involvement, however, the 15 touches are a good sign and point to better days in the future. Stay the course with Akers.

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown logged 18 carries for 79 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team's 20-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Sept. 13. Brown also caught three passes for 31 yards.
Huddle Up: There's no denying it was a strong game for Brown. Bear in mind, however, he had 53 yards rushing and two TDs in last year's opener and then didn't top 40 yards in a game again over the rest of the season. Granted, Cam Akers isn't Todd Gurley, but it's fair to approach Brown's Week 1 showing with some skepticism. That being said, don't be afraid to scoop him off of waivers if you're looking for RB help.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 20 of 31 passes for 275 yards, no touchdowns and an interception against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1. He added 15 yards on four rushes.
Huddle Up: Goff looked crisp and decisive early but struggled once the Cowboys dialed up the pressure. Even without Brandin Cooks, Goff still has a nice collection of options that give him weekly upside. He's a QB2 that can be started in advantageous matchups.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp and the team have made 'significant progress' toward a 'large' new contract extension, according to a report Saturday, Sept. 12, by NFL Network reporters Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo. There's a chance the deal is finalized before the Rams kick off their season Sunday night, Sept. 13, against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Would be a strong sense of security for one of the Rams' top weapons and a solid WR2 this season.

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Henderson will have to share playing time with Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown, which hurts his fantasy value. He is a possible flex option in some leagues but can also be benched if better options are available.
