Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff's recent inconsistent play has left his status as the starting quarterback for the 2021 season in the air and may lead the team to bring in someone who can push him, according to comments made by the NFL Network's Steve Wyche. 'The people I've spoken to said basically at this moment the relationship with Goff and (head coach Sean) McVay: not great. They need marriage counseling is what one person said to me. I think this is something that they're going to be able to work through, but there's got to be some healing and that's not just with Jared Goff's injured thumb,' Wyche said.
Huddle Up: Goff was very good in McVay's first two seasons (2017 and 2018), but it would seem that once opponents figured out how to slow down Todd Gurley late during the second half of the 2018 campaign, Goff started to get exposed. It's also possible that the defections of Sammy Watkins and Brandin Cooks have given defenses less to worry about vertically or that he is feeling the pressure of playing under his four-year, $134 million contract that he signed in September of 2019. Whatever the reason(s), fantasy owners should expect him to compete for his job in camp this summer.

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 QB Jared Goff (thumb) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 14, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Goff had a solid outing in relief during the Wild Card playoff game but may be without Cooper Kupp this week. Fantasy players probably can find a better option to use and can keep Goff on the bench.

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.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) will start Saturday, Jan. 16, in the divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, Rams head coach Sean McVay said Thursday. Blake Bortles will serve as the backup.
Huddle Up: Goff came in early for injured starter John Wolford (neck) in last Saturday's wild-card win over the Seahawks, but completed only 9-of-19 passes for 155 yards and a TD while playing with his surgically repaired thumb.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Kupp caught four of nine targets for 78 yards in the NFC Wild Card Round win over the Seattle Seahawks after sitting out Week 17. He'll be a strong fantasy option if on the field against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.

Los Angeles Rams QB John Wolford (neck) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Wolford isn't a fantasy option even if he were to get the start over Jared Goff in the NFC Divisional Round game against the Green Bay Packers.

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams QB John Wolford (neck) has a stinger, and he's day to day, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: There's no word on whether he'll start or Jared Goff (thumb) will, but Wolford has to be the favorite. He's not a favorite as far as playoff fantasy leagues go as he's likely the least valuable of those starters still playing.

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay did not commit to a starter between QBs Jared Goff (thumb) and John Wolford (neck) for the team's Divisional Round playoff matchup with the Green Bay Packers on Saturday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: McVay punted the question to later in the week as he waits to see what the status of Wolford's neck is as well as how Goff's surgically repaired thumb responds after he was pressed into duty for much of last Saturday. Monitor the situation leading up to gametime in what figures to be very cold conditions.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is dealing with bursitis of the knee, but he is expected to be fine for the NFC Divisional Round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 16 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Kupp will be needed if the Rams want to spring the road upset against the rest and top-seed Packers on the road. He is a tremendous PPR option for fantasy owners in postseason leagues, and a nice DFS play as well. However, watch his progress during practice this week before pulling the trigger on him.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is believed to have suffered a knee contusion during the Wild Card playoff game and should be fine moving forward.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor Kupp's practice participation during the week to see if he will be ready to play in the Divisional Round playoff game. He is one of the main options in the passing game for the Rams and should be a starting fantasy option.

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams QB John Wolford (neck) was released from the hospital and was in the locker room after the Wild Card playoff game, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Wolford was the starting quarterback for the Rams this week but was not able to finish the game and may return to the backup job next week with Jared Goff able to play this week. Goff and Wolford can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Rams QB John Wolford will be the starting quarterback for the Wild Card playoff game with QB Jared Goff (thumb) being the backup quarterback, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Wolford threw for 231 yards and one interception in the regular season finale but also was able to run for 56 yards. The Rams likely will use a run-heavy offense, so fantasy players can avoid Wolford.

Los Angeles Rams QB John Wolford took the majority of snaps in practice this week and is prepared to start Saturday, Jan. 9, in the wild-card playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Jared Goff also is pushing to play, and might if Wolford starts and struggles early. Wolford was 22-of-38 for 231 yards and an interception with 56 rushing yards on six carries in the Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 7, and is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Goff will be a game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He threw zero touchdowns and one interception in two games against the Seattle Seahawks during the regular season and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers practiced in full for a second consecutive day and was removed from the injury report Thursday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: Akers handled 25 touches in Week 17 despite reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which only caused him to miss one game. There's no way the rookie is anywhere close to 100 percent, as evidenced by his 21 carries for 34 yards last week. The Seattle Seahawks are not a great matchup for him, but the Rams might need him to handle another heavy workload with the questions they have at quarterback at the moment.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) is still a question mark for the wild-card round against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, Jan. 9. Head coach Sean McVay said he is not going to name his starter under center until right up to game time. If Goff cannot go, QB John Wolford would make his second career start.
Huddle Up: Goff threw for over 300 yards in the first meeting on Sunday Night Football against the Seahawks, but he has no touchdowns through the air or on the ground in two regular-season games against Seattle. Even if he can play he is a risky option in postseason fantasy leagues and DFS.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: Akers is well on track to play Saturday, Jan. 9, against the Seattle Seahawks. He'll be an RB2 option with plenty of passing game work expected.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: Kupp should be in the lineup for the Wild Card playoff game after missing the last game while on the COVID list. He will see plenty of targets and can be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers was listed as a limited participant on the team's estimated injury report for Tuesday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Akers ran the ball 21 times in Week 17 but gained just 34 yards. He salvaged some value with four receptions for 52 yards and should again see plenty of work in the passing game with the Rams' quarterback troubles ahead of the Wild Card round. He's a quality DFS option if active.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) was listed as a limited participant on the team's estimated injury report for Tuesday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Goff is considered questionable for Saturday's NFC Wild Card Game against the Seattle Seahawks. He'll be a risky start after missing the regular-season finale following thumb surgery. DFS players can find better options, especially against the improved Seahawks' defense.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp is expected to return from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Jan. 6, according to head coach Sean McVay Tuesday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Kupp will be a big addition to the passing game whether it's led by QB Jared Goff or John Wolford. DFS players should be hoping to see the former under center, but there should be enough for Kupp to return value either way.
