Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford is expected to have his 2023 option bonus and 2024 salary picked up by the third day of the new league year, which will amount to $62 million in guaranteed money the next two years, per sources on Saturday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Stafford had a dreadful year, but so did the team around him. Regardless, the veteran signal-caller can return to at least a high-end QB2 in 2023 if Los Angeles rights the ship.

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford said he does not plan to retire this offseason and that head coach Sean McVay's future with the team will not affect his plans.
Huddle Up: Stafford missed most of the season because of a neck injury but plans to be on the field in 2023. He could be a low-end No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he does not suffer any setbacks.

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford (neck) said he's not retiring after sustaining a spinal cord contusion.
Huddle Up: Stafford will be a midrange QB1 in fantasy drafts next season.

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford (neck) is not expected to require any offseason surgeries for a spinal cord contusion which caused him to be placed on injured reserve, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Stafford is eligible to be activated from the IR for Week 17, although McVay said there's a good chance that he misses the remainder of the regular season. QB Baker Mayfield is likely to start the Rams' last four games of the 2022 campaign but shouldn't be started outside of deeper two-quarterback fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford (neck) has a spinal cord contusion, and he is likely to miss the remainder of the season. Head coach Sean McVay said Sunday, Dec. 4 that Stafford is likely done for 2022, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Stafford's neck issue is causing numbness in his legs.
Huddle Up: The Rams slipped 3-9, so there is no sense is risking further damage to Stafford if he is healthy enough to return from the reserve/injured list in Week 17, as the defending champs are no longer in pursuit of a playoff spot. If his season is done, he finishes with 2,087 yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions in nine starts.

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford (neck) was placed on injured reserve on Saturday, Dec. 3, likely ending his 2022 season.
Huddle Up: Stafford will be eligible to return in Week 17, but there would be little point to sending him out there with the Rams' season over. The Rams have a lot of questions to answer going into the 2023 offseason, but for now John Wolford will take the reins, with Bryce Perkins backing him up. Wolford shouldn't be anywhere near lineups.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams QB John Wolford will start in place of QB Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck) after he was ruled out for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Stafford has been cleared from the protocol but will still sit out. He would have been a very shaky option anyway, which means Wolford should be kept far away from lineups. Meanwhile, the Seattle Seahawks' D/ST becomes a must-start option for Week 13.

Los Angeles Rams DL Aaron Donald (ankle), LB Travin Howard (hip), LB Terrell Lewis (back), QB Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck) and WR Lance McCutcheon (shoulder) did not practice on Friday, Dec. 2, and were ruled out for Week 13. Also, TE Tyler Higbee (rest) did not practice but was removed from the injury report, CB Troy Hill (groin) did not practice but is questionable, C Brian Allen (thumb) and LB Ernest Jones (back) were limited and are questionable, and OG Oday Aboushi (illness), RB Cam Akers (illness) and OT Ty Nsekhe (ankle) practiced in full and were removed from the injury report.

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck) cleared the league's concussion protocol Friday, Dec. 2, but will not play in Week 13 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: The Rams will decide between John Wolford and Bryce Perkins as their starting quarterback this week and perhaps in the weeks ahead. There is little to be gained by Stafford playing again this season with his primary weapons out indefinitely and his offensive line hopelessly beat up. Neither Wolford nor Perkins are worth starting in most leagues, but the situation makes the Seahawks DST a very good play.

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.
Huddle Up: Stafford probably will not be available for Week 13 and may miss the rest of the season. Bryce Perkins probably will receive another start but should be avoided in all leagues.
