  • Matthew Stafford Throwing At OTAs

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (neck) is back throwing at organized team activities after an elbow issue prevented him from doing so last year. A neck injury also knocked him out for the final seven games of the 2022 season, but he's healthy now despite wearing a sleeve covering his right leg. "I'm just going to keep putting more sleeves on my body as years go, so just get used to it," Stafford said with a laugh. "No, I'm fine. I'm out here. I'm good." The 35-year-old shouldn't have any limitations during offseason workouts as he looks to bounce back in 2023. Stafford's fantasy value this year will be tied to No. 1 receiver Cooper Kupp's (ankle) health, but injury concerns for the veteran signal-caller will make him more of a QB2.

  • Puka Nacua Impressing At Rams OTAs

    Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua is getting praise at Rams' OTAs, including from veteran teammate Van Jefferson. "He has come in and taken ownership of the playbook, and tried to learn the best he can," Jefferson said. "You can just see how it (translates) on the field. He's been having a great two days that he's been out here." Nacua was the 177th overall pick (fifth round) in the 2023 NFL Draft after two strong final seasons at BYU. Over the last two years, he caught 91 passes for 1,430 yards and 11 touchdowns in 21 games. With Cooper Kupp as the only established wideout for the Rams, Nacua could be a rookie sleeper in Sean McVay's offense immediately.

  • Rams Sign Tyler Hudson, Jaiden Woodbey

    The St. Louis Rams signed undrafted rookie wide receiver Tyler Hudson and safety Jaiden Woodbey to undisclosed deals on Wednesday. The Rams are bringing Hudson back after waiving him earlier in the week. At the University of Louisville last year, he caught 69 passes for 1,034 yards and two touchdowns. Hudson will attempt to impress the coaching staff at training camp this summer to stick around on the roster. Woodbey also returns to the Rams after being waived this week. Woodbey was a versatile safety at Boston College who totaled 103 tackles, two passes defensed and an interception in his last two collegiate seasons.

  • Aaron Donald Says He's 100 Percent Healthy

    Headshot for Aaron Donald

    Los Angeles Rams All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald (ankle) said that he's feeling 100 percent after having surgery to fix a high-ankle sprain in the offseason. "I'm at 100 percent now, feeling good," Donald said. The 31-year-old has considered retirement in recent seasons, but apparently he plans to come back in 2023 despite having an injury shortened 2022 campaign in which he had 49 tackles (27 solo), a career-low five sacks, 10 tackles for loss, 11 QB hits, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in only 11 games. Donald can still be an IDP beast if he can stay healthy in 2023, but he's not going to have a lot of help on the Rams defense. There aren't many like Donald, as he's made the Pro Bowl each of his nine NFL seasons.

  • Rams Have Options With Rookie Steve Avila

    Los Angeles Rams offensive lineman Steve Avila could have the best path to immediate playing time in 2023 among the team's rookie draft picks. The Rams have options with Avila; they have an opening at guard, or they could play him at center. In the long-term, The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue sees Avila taking over at center and having a solid career at the pivot. The 23-year-old has drawn rave reviews for his character and work ethic, and he's exactly the type of player that the Rams need to help stabilize a roster that is in disarray after a 2022 season that saw them miss the postseason after winning the Super Bowl the previous year.

  • Rams Think Zach Evans Can Be Special

    Headshot for Zach Evans

    The Los Angeles Rams traded up 37 spots to select running back Zach Evans out of Ole Miss in this year's draft in the sixth round. NFL.com had a fourth-round grade on Evans, and he has the skills to be an every-down back at the next level. He has good speed, a nasty stiff arm and averaged 6.9 yards per carry in college at two different schools. Head coach Sean McVay said Evans has "special traits," so the team added him to a backfield already consisting of Cam Akers and Kyren Williams. According to McVay, Evans is a smooth runner who can "work edges on people." He averaged 3.56 yards after contact per carry in 2022 and was one of the most elusive backs in the nation. Evans won't be a starter right away, but he could carve out a nice third-down role as a big-play threat in his rookie season for the Rams.

  • Van Jefferson Feeling Good

    Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson (knee) is feeling much better this offseason after two knee surgeries delayed his 2022 debut until Week 8. "It's been great being back and working with Grif (strength and conditioning associated John Griffin), (associate athletic trainer) Mark (Dydasco) and (Vice President, Sports Medicine and Performance) Reggie (Scott) and those guys, getting back to myself and I'm feeling pretty good," Jefferson said. He averaged 15.6 yards per catch in 11 games last year, and of his 24 receptions, seven went for 20-plus yards. With Allen Robinson II now in Pittsburgh, Jefferson could find himself in a bigger role as the second-most experienced receiver on the roster in 2023. With good health, Jefferson could be a fantasy sleeper worth targeting in drafts this fall.

  • Jackson Carman In The Mix For Right-Tackle Job

    The fact that the Cincinnati Bengals didn't draft an offensive lineman this year should be seen as a vote of confidence for offensive tackle Jackson Carman as one of the guys in the mix to win the right-tackle job this summer. Carman went into organized team activities his rookie year taking first-team repetitions at right tackle, but he couldn't win the job. He was the plan at left guard in 2022 but struggled in the preseason and lost the job to rookie fourth-rounder Cordell Volson. Carman has another opportunity to win a job this year, but if he fails, he could be out of the team's plans. He'll be competing against the likes of Jonah Williams, Cody Ford, D'Ante Smith and Hakeem Adeniji.

  • Brett Rypien Agrees To Deal With Rams

    Headshot for Brett Rypien

    Free-agent quarterback Brett Rypien agreed to a one-year deal with the Rams on Wednesday. The signal-caller appeared in eight games for Denver in the last three seasons, amassing 778 yards, four touchdowns, and eight interceptions while completing 61.5% of his throws. However, the Broncos chose to move on from Rypien, so he'll now head to LA, presumably supporting Matthew Stafford. With that said, unless the 26-year-old gets a chance to start, he has no fantasy value in any format.
