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 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 QB Jared Goff (thumb) practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Goff completed just nine of 19 pass attempts for 155 yards and one touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card Round. An extra week of recovery should serve him well, and he has a more favorable matchup against the Green Bay Packers defense this week.

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 QB Jared Goff (thumb) and QB John Wolford (neck) are expected to be fine for the Divisional Round playoff game, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Wolford received the start during the Wild Card playoff game but was replaced by Goff after suffering the injury. Fantasy players should monitor practice this week to see which quarterback will start in the Divisional Round but can probably find better options for their lineups.

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 Jared Goff (thumb) is active for the team's wild-card playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: No surprise here, but there's still been no indication whether he or John Wolford will get the start, and it's quite likely that both will end up playing. Stay tuned ...

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 QB Jared Goff (thumb) told reporters Thursday, Jan. 7, that his injured thumb is 'progressing well.' However, neither he nor head coach Sean McVay would commit to him starting versus the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card game Saturday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Per NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano, McVay did say his quarterback "recovered without a problem from Wednesday" and did "everything asked Thursday." As such, Goff should be expected to start Saturday despite being listed as questionable unless McVay isn't certain Goff can protect himself. The former No. 1 overall pick did not account for a touchdown in either of the Rams' two regular-season meetings against Seattle.

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.
