  Rams | DeSean Jackson headed to LAR    Sun Mar 21, 08:45 PM

Free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles) agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Rams Sunday, March 21.

Footballguys view: Jackson still has a ton of speed and he'll use that to take the top off the defense with the Rams. He's worked with Sean McVay before dating back to their days with Washington. If healthy, Jackson can still be a threat for an offense.

  Rams | Josh Reynolds not expected to return    Mon Mar 8, 04:53 PM

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Josh Reynolds is not expected to re-sign with the Rams this offseason.

Footballguys view: Reynolds has flashed a bit during his time with the Rams. A fourth-round pick out of Texas A&M in the 2017 NFL draft, Reynolds should find work as a backup receiver on the outside. We'll monitor his landing spot in deep dynasty formats.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp tough to bring down    Sun Feb 28, 08:00 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led all receivers with 21 avoided tackles after receptions in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: That's always been Kupp's game, so it's no surprised that advanced data shows those type of numbers. Expect more of the same, but perhaps with improved production overall from Kupp and the Rams passing game due to new starting quarterback Matthew Stafford.

  Rams | Cam Akers struggled with efficiency    Fri Feb 26, 10:40 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers ranked 11th in rushing yards over the final five weeks of the season, but his 4.0 yards per carry in that stretch were the fewest among players ranked in the top 20 in rushing.

Footballguys view: That number, 4.0 yards per carry, shows how teams were drilling down on the Rams rushing attack. It's not a terrible number, but it is lower than Akers had earlier in the season. He should benefit from the arrival of veteran QB Matthew Stafford. The new QB should take a lot of pressure off the ground game.

  Rams | Coach sees Cam Akers as every down back    Thu Feb 25, 03:46 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers is an every down running back in the NFL, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Footballguys view: Akers can be a three-down back so long as he stays healthy. The Rams need to use him more as a receiver going forward as Akers only had 11 catches as a rookie in 2020. He finished the year as the no.40 fantasy running back (standard-scoring leagues) but only played 11 games. With a full season and more usage as a receiver out of the backfield, Akers could post top-10 numbers.

  Rams | Robert Woods tops in WR YAC    Sat Feb 20, 01:45 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods leads all wide receivers with 1,089 yards after the catch since the start of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus data.

Footballguys view: The Rams offense got a shot in the arm when they traded for QB Matthew Stafford. That means things could look even better for Woods in 2021. Woods finished as the no.13 fantasy receiver (standard-scoring leagues) in 2020 even though he did not post 1,000 yards receiving.

  Rams | Marvin Jones eyeing reunion with QB?    Wed Feb 17, 09:38 PM

Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Marvin Jones has expressed interest in joining the Los Angeles Rams to reunite with QB Matthew Stafford, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Jones had a great connection with Stafford but as things always do in free agency - it comes down to price. Will the Rams, with Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods, be interested in paying Jones a premium price? Yes, they may lose Josh Reynolds as an unrestricted free agent but that doesn't mean they'll take Jones for what could be a better-than-expected contract. Stay tuned.

  Rams | Matthew Stafford's current deal unlikely to change    Sun Jan 31, 10:25 AM

QB Matthew Stafford's contract is not expected to change as a result of his recent trade from the Detroit Lions to the Los Angeles Rams, meaning that he will not receive an extension or a raise. He has two years left on his current deal and is slated to earn $43 million.

Footballguys view: Stafford's numbers are incredibly low (basically $21 million per year) for the current quarterback market. The Rams are in 'win now' mode with this aggressive move to get Stafford. We'll see if they can do that, and his contract is certainly not going to be an issue for bringing talent in at other positions.

  Rams | Matthew Stafford headed to L.A.    Sat Jan 30, 10:13 PM

The Los Angeles Rams have agreed to acquire QB Matthew Stafford from the Detroit Lions in exchange for QB Jared Goff, a 2021 third-round pick, a 2022 first-round pick and a 2023 first-round pick, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Rams wanted to move on from Goff by any means necessary. They were able to do that but it will cost them in the future. Stafford now takes over an offense with explosive players and a bright mind in Sean McVay running the show. He should be a QB1 for Fantasy GMs in 2021 as the Rams made an aggressive 'win now' move to add the veteran passer.

  Rams | Matthew Stafford, LA Rams have mutual interest    Fri Jan 29, 05:35 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford reportedly considers the Los Angeles Rams 'a viable contender in his trade market,' according to multiple sources. The Rams have also reportedly 'explored the possibilities' with Stafford despite not knowing what they can do with Jared Goff's long-term contract on the books.

Footballguys view: The Lions are in a position as a rebuilding team to take on Goff's onerous contract, possibly in exchange for additional draft capital. The Rams desire to make a change at quarterback the offseason seems to almost be as strong as Deshaun Watson's desire to change teams.

  Rams | Jared Goff, John Wolford to compete for job    Thu Jan 28, 12:43 AM

Los Angeles Rams QBs Jared Goff and John Wolford are expected to take part in an 'open competition' for the starting quarterback job in training camp, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This assumes that the Rams don't trade Goff during the offseason.

Footballguys view: There's a chance the Rams go ahead and move on from Goff this offseason. If not, mainly due to his cap number, then he'll have to beat out Wolford for the starting job. It's a situation to watch as the new league year is set to start at the beginning of March.

  Rams | GM refuses to commit to Jared Goff    Tue Jan 26, 02:47 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff is not guaranteed a roster spot for the 2021 season, according to comments made by general manager Les Snead on Tuesday, Jan. 26. Snead reportedly declined to provide a yes/no answer when he was 'asked repeatedly that there's a scenario' where Goff wouldn't be on the roster and referenced a recent quote from Aaron Rodgers about the future being 'a beautiful mystery,' according to ESPN's Lindsey Thiry.

Footballguys view: It would be tough to get rid of Goff due to the salary cap, but where there's a will there's a way. Things seem shaky right now for Goff and the Rams, but that could all clear up by the time free agency starts.

  Rams | John Johnson may be too expensive    Sun Jan 24, 04:28 PM

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent S John Johnson may be too expensive for the Rams to re-sign this offseason because they have limited salary cap space. The team could consider placing the franchise tag on Johnson.

Footballguys view: Standout corner Darious Williams will also be a restricted free agent and could draw a big offer sheet unless the Rams tender him at a first round level.

  Rams | Aaron Donald in a league of his own    Sat Jan 23, 09:12 PM

Los Angeles DT Aaron Donald faced more double-teams when rushing the passer than any defensive tackle in the NFL in 2020 and posted pass rush wins at the highest rate of any player.

Footballguys view: Donald being less than 100% for the divisional round loss to the Packers was a big letdown for him and the potential for a more competitive game. He's the best in the game at his position and probably the best defensive player in the game period.

  Rams | LA Rams block Kevin O'Connell from interview    Tue Jan 19, 02:27 PM

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell will not be allowed to interview for the offensive coordinator vacancy with the Los Angeles Chargers for now after the Rams denied the request based on the fact it would be a lateral move. However, the 'lines of communications remain open, so things could change,' according to Albert Breer of The MMQB.

Footballguys view: It's a lateral move so Rams coach Sean McVay can block the request. Former Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley takes over as the Chargers head coach, and he wanted to pluck some guys from the Rams staff to go along with him.

  Rams | Raheem Morris primed for DC job with LA Rams?    Tue Jan 19, 01:38 PM

Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Raheem Morris is reportedly nearing a deal to become the new defensive coordinator of the Los Angeles Rams, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Rams will need to replace former DC Brandon Staley who went on to become the Chargers head coach. Morris got a chance as the interim coach with the Falcons last year but did not get that job, instead the Falcons went with Arthur Smith as their new head coach. Morris has a fine scheme and should fit in with the Rams.

  Rams | Jared Goff on shaky ground in LA?    Tue Jan 19, 01:35 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Goff and McVay need an offseason like Packers head coach Matt LaFleur and QB Aaron Rodgers had last year. LeFleur and Rodgers did not look to be on the same page at times in 2019, and in 2020 they went out and secured the no.1 seed in the NFC and now sit one game away from the Super Bowl. Goff is no Rodgers, but he fought through injury in the playoffs and didn't look as bad as some had feared. We'll see if things can smooth over with some time away before offseason work starts later in the spring.
