  • Rams Non-Committal On Starting QB For Week 12

    Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said "you'll see on Sunday" whether rookie quarterback Bryce Perkins starts under center in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. McVay confirmed that Perkins received first-team repetitions in practice this week with John Wolford (neck) being limited. The Rams already ruled out Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck). It will most likely be the 25-year-old Perkins getting the starting nod for the Rams, which will be his first career NFL start. LA's offense is in shambles right now without Stafford and Cooper Kupp (ankle), and they could also be without tight end Tyler Higbee and receiver Allen Robinson II due to injuries this Sunday. Perkins will be a desperation low-end QB2 in superflex leagues if he's starting, while the Chiefs defensive unit is a must-start this weekend.

  • Bryce Perkins Gets Kansas City In First Start

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Bryce Perkins is expected to start against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 12. It will be Perkins' first career start. The 25-year-old threw his first pass in Week 10, a completion for a loss of three yards. He entered Week 11 in relief after Matthew Stafford left with a head injury and completed 5-of-10 passes for 64 yards. Perkins joined the Rams practice squad in 2020 after setting the single season record for yards from scrimmage while starting at the University of Virginia. He had an impressive preseason this year, completing 35-of-49 passes for 399 yards and two touchdowns while running for 73 yards on seven carries. The Chiefs allow the sixth-most passing yards per game, so it could be a good matchup. But Perkins is a risky option in his first career start.

  • Bryce Perkins Expected To See First-Team Reps

    The Los Angeles Rams are expected to give young quarterback Bryce Perkins first-team repetitions in practice this week with both Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck) and John Wolford (neck) injured. The Rams already ruled Stafford out for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Perkins could make the first start of his career this weekend, which would put him on the emergency QB2 map for fantasy managers in superflex leagues. It would also make the Chiefs' defensive unit much more attractive in fantasy. The 25-year-old signal-caller went 5-for-10 for 64 yards and had five carries for 39 yards in relief of Stafford in the Week 11 loss to the New Orleans Saints. In Week 10, Perkins completed his only attempt for minus-three yards and ran three times for four yards.

  • Matthew Stafford Enters Concussion Protocol, Bryce Perkins Takes Over

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford was taken to the locker room and placed in concussion protocol during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Per league policy, he won't return to the contest. It's a concerning development considering Stafford was in concussion protocol just a few days ago. Not only are the Rams without Stafford for the rest of the game, but John Wolford (neck) is also inactive. As a result, third-string quarterback Bryce Perkins entered the game. Look for him to use his mobility to help lead Los Angeles down the field throughout the duration of Stafford's absence.
