Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford (elbow) recently received an anti-inflammatory shot to his left elbow and is wearing a brace to limit his range of motion while his elbow heals, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Rodrigue notes that this procedure is just "normal offseason maintenance," so there appears to be nothing to see here. With Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson now at his disposal, Stafford should have no problem serving as a mid-level QB1 for fantasy purposes in 2022.

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford reportedly agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension worth $160 million - including $135 million guaranteed - on Saturday, March 19.
Huddle Up: High-end quarterbacks are now attracting contracts that average around $40 million per season, so this is about right for the market and should help the Rams get to a better place in terms of their salary cap. With at least Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson at his disposal for at least the next three seasons, Stafford should remain a very serviceable fantasy QB1 for the bulk of this new contract.

Huddle Up: Stafford has played well in his first season with the Rams and finished the regular season second the NFL with 4,886 passing yards and third with 41 touchdowns. He has one of the better receiving corps in the NFL and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season.

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford was 47-for-73 (64.3 percent) for 481 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions in two games against the San Francisco 49ers this season.
Huddle Up: He also has an up-to-speed OBJ to stretch defenses now, which has been a problem in the playoffs. Patrick Mahomes is the best QB left in playoff pools, but Stafford is probably second.
