Rams' Aaron Donald: Locked in for fifth season with option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams have exercised the fifth-year option on Donald's rookie contract, ESPN.com's Field Yates reports.

As a first-round selection (2014) who wasn't taken within the top 10 picks (No. 13), Donald gets an option-year salary equal to the average of the third- through 25th-highest salaries at his position. The fifth-year option thus locks him in for 2018 at a salary of only $6.892 million, which would be an incredible bargain for a player of his caliber. He probably won't end up playing for that figure, as the Rams will try to sign him to a long-term extension either this offseason or next. Boasting 28 sacks and 163 tackles in 48 games through three seasons, Donald should end up with one of the largest non-quarterback contracts in the NFL.

Rams' Aaron Donald: Finishes 2016 as top interior defender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donald was the highest-rated interior defender in the NFL during the 2016 season, according to Pro Football Focus.

It was also a monster fantasy showing for Donald, as his 47 tackles (36 solo), eight sacks and two forced fumbles provided a high-end return at the defensive line position. Entering his fourth season in the league next year, there is potential for further growth in the real and virtual game for Donald. He should be one of the first defensive linemen off the board in IDP formats in 2017.

Rams' Aaron Donald: Picks up two sacks against Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donald recorded two sacks and four tackles during Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Over his past five games, Donald has an impressive five sacks and 18 tackles (17 solo). His disruptive on-field play hasn't always translated to consistent fantasy results, but that's certainly not the case of late, and the third-year defensive tackle's best production might still be in front of him.
