Saffold didn't play last week despite fitting in a limited practice Friday. Now removed from the injury report entirely, he's all but assured of playing Sunday against Atlanta, barring any setbacks.
Gaines was held out of practice all week after injuring his quad in Week 13. Expect Blake Countess too see a spot start if Gaines is held out Sunday.
No practice last week translated to a doubtful designation and eventual inactive status Sunday at New England. With an uncapped return to drills, though, Austin appears to be over his brief episode with a chest injury. Looking ahead to this Sunday's matchup against the high-powered Falcons, the Rams may be forced to the air early and often, which could benefit Austin, who has gathered in five of six passes for 66 yards and one touchdown in two games with Jared Goff (illness) under center.
Cunningham was unable to practice this week because of his neck problem, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he's inactive for Sunday's contest. While that would hurt the Rams in the return game, his absence would also figure to allow Malcolm Brown to serve as Todd Gurley's primary backup at running back.
The rookie out of Colorado failed to appear in a single game for the Rams this season due to a lingering calf injury. As the No. 7 receiver on the depth chart, his loss likely won't have much of an impact on the team's already-stagnant passing attack.
Thus, the illness that forced Goff's DNP on Wednesday was short-lived. He can now concentrate on keeping up with the Falcons' high-octane offense, which should be made easier Sunday against a defense that has given up a league-worst 294.1 yards per game and 26 touchdowns to quarterbacks this season.
Hemingway is the Rams' fourth tight end, so he'll likely remain inactive most weeks unless one of the team's other options at the position is out with an injury. The rookie has made three appearances this season, but is still looking for his first career catch.
The special teams selections are as follows:
With Jared Cook gone, Harkey should play a larger role in the offense as the Rams love two-tight end sets. He only had five catches for 26 yards last season and is primarily a blocker, but should see at least a minor spike in production in 2016.
It seems as if the move to the IR cements the suspicion that Forrest tore his ACL on Sunday, although the team has yet to comment on specifics of the injury. The 24-year-old recorded nine tackles, one pass deflection, and one fumble recovery in 10 games, primarily on special teams.
In what would've been considered a shocking twist just a few months ago, Mannion, a third-round pick in 2015, has been placed above the first-overall pick in 2016, Jared Goff, on the depth Chart. Mannion impressed in the preseason, finishing with 325 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception on 39-of-60 passing. That performance, combined with his extra year in the team's offense, is likely why he ended up as the primary backup.
With just eight targets over the past four games, Higbee remains nothing more than a tertiary option in the passing game. However, Los Angeles has only four wins, and the Rams should be looking ahead to 2017. Higbee played 56 percent of the offensive snaps in Week 13, and while he could begin to see a few extra targets, it likely won't provide enough of an opportunity for him to become fantasy relevant.
Bailey suffered a pair of gunshot wounds to the head last November, underwent surgery soon after, and has been working relentlessly to return to the field since. Unfortunately, his release from the team suggests the Rams don't believe his NFL career can continue much longer. Should he clear waivers, NFL Network's Steve Wyche reported that Bailey is expected to rejoin the team in a non-playing role.
Britt was quiet when it counted, but helped owners out with a 66-yard catch and a 1-yard touchdown on Los Angeles' final drive. While it's tougher to trust him with rookie Jared Goff at quarterback than it was during Case Keenum's time as the starter, Britt continues to be the top fantasy commodity on the Rams. Another strong performance seems likely against the porous Falcons secondary next week.
Johnson was able to be a full participant during Friday's practice session, so his availability for Week 10 comes as no surprise.
Dareus was listed as out after Friday's practice. He finishes his season with 48 total tackles and 10 sacks for the Bills.
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.
Clearly behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett on the Patriots' tight end depth chart, Williams is competing for depth slotting at the position along with Clay Harbor, A.J. Derby, Steven Scheu and Bear Pascoe.
Wichmann picked up an ankle injury in last week's game against the Bills, but it ultimately won't keep him off the field in Week 6, though he only practiced once this week in limited fashion.
The Rams had previously stated they were going to bring Battle along slowly, but reversed course. St. Louis will lose its fifth-round pick in next year's draft.
Alexander was listed as questionable with a thigh injury for the Week 3 tilt but rarely left the field. The free safety has just 10 tackles (eight solo) this season with two passes defended despite playing all but five defensive snaps through the first three games of the season.
Brown was inactive in Week 9 due to complications from his surgically-repaired hand, but looks like he will be available Sunday as a reserve option along the Rams' offensive line.
Christian, a fifth round selection of the 2016 NFL Draft, was waived by the Cardinals earlier in the week, but it didn't take long for him to find a new home. While the rookie isn't likely to see major action anytime soon, especially with a new team, he is expected to serve in a reserve role behind starting strong safety T.J. McDonald. The Rams released defensive back Isaiah Johnson to make room for Christian on the roster.
McDonald will finish Sunday's game with just one tackle if he's unable to return. Marqui Christian figures to see some extra reps as long as McDonald is out.
Ogletree has now registered double-digit tackles in each of his last two games, and he's averaging 10 over his last four contests. On the season, he hasn't had fewer than six stops in any game, and he's a rock-solid weekly IDP option.
Sims was forced out of the Rams' Week 10 contest against the Jets due to a possible concussion, but he's since been able to clear through the league's protocol and will be good to go in Week 11.
Williams was with the Rams earlier this season prior to his stint in San Diego. It isn't clear he slots into defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' defense off the bat.
Hills departure comes after he was arrested Saturday morning for a DUI. The Rams decided to wipe their hands clean of the whole situation, leaving the 25-year-old free to sign on with another team. Hill recorded 38 tackles this season in nine games, starting in a few contests. Look for E.J. Gaines to take over his role going forward.
Gaines was the only player listed on the injury report. He was considered doubtful due to a concussion. The other six players listed are healthy scratches.
Quick led the team in targets and catches, but that's not saying much given their overall ineffectiveness on offense with rookie Jared Goff under center. No. 1 receiver Kenny Britt still had a greater impact with more yards and the lone Rams touchdown in this 26-10 loss, and should continue to overshadow Quick in a system that has failed to produce two viable receiving options most weeks.
It's still unclear what Laskey is suffering from, but the Rams were evidently impressed with his potential as a fullback. He'll tryout for the team once again ahead of the 2017 campaign.
Though Quinn is officially listed as questionable it would be surprising if he didn't play on Sunday after practicing in full on Friday. If he does wind up sitting out for a second straight game, look for Eugene Sims to see some extra snaps once again.
Zuerlein has hit 16 of 19 field goals and converted each of his 18 extra-point attempts this season, but his lack of opportunities make him a low-end fantasy option. His fortunes are unlikely to change going forward, either.
Fox has stood out in practice and has been subsequently added to the active roster. Fox will likely serve as a special teams asset.
Barnes missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with the injury, but was able to log a limited session Friday, which was enough for the Rams to sign off on his availability. He'll start at center as he usually does.
Cooper boasts similar attributes to Austin, who didn't practice all week, so he embodies a like-for-like replacement if Austin is deemed inactive Sunday. However, with just three catches for 19 yards during his rookie season so far, Cooper's production is nowhere near that of Austin, potentially making the Rams offense even more toothless in Week 13.
Barron had his most productive game of the season with 14 stops, and he's now recorded back-to-back games with double-digit tackle totals. On the season he's averaging eight tackles while also adding a sack and two interceptions, making him a strong weekly option in IDP leagues.
More concerning for his fantasy value, Kendricks played just 63 percent of the offensive snaps, and Tyler Higbee played 56 percent. Kendricks' hit-or-miss fantasy stock can't afford to lose playing time to the rookie tight end, Still, with the focus likely shifting to the Rams' future, Higbee could continue to be more involved in the offense.
North's placement on IR may explain why he didn't see a single snap in any of the Rams' first three preseason contests as he may be suffering from a nagging or recurring soft-tissue injury. Nonetheless, whatever the injury may be, North will now have ample time to return to full health in advance of the 2017 campaign.
The second year linebacker projects to back up Alec Ogletree this season. His status for Monday's season opener against the 49ers will depend on if he can clear the NFL's concussion protocol. If he cannot play, Josh Forrest will likely slide into the backup role.
Longacre has missed the previously two games while nursing a hip injury. His absence from Wednesday's injury report seemingly indicates he is trending toward a return in Week 11. If he indeed take's the field Sunday, he will help provide depth on the Rams' defensive line.
After the Rams moved up to the No. 1 spot in the 2016 NFL Draft and selected Jared Goff, it was only a matter of time before head coach Jeff Fisher put his trust in the rookie quarterback. With a 4-5 record, the team isn't out of the playoff hunt by any means, but clearly Fisher felt that Goff was ready to helm the 31st-ranked offense. The move will thus push Keenum to a backup role following a nine-game stretch in which he posted the fourth-worst QB rating (76.8) among qualified signal-callers.
Brockers' Week 10 status wasn't too iffy after practicing in full on Friday, despite missing practice earlier in the week due to the minor groin issue.
The attempts and rushing yards were both season highs for Brown, as through his first 10 games, he had just four carries for seven yards. It isn't out of the question for Brown to see a slight uptick in work going forward, but he's currently off the fantasy grid. After all, Brown had just five offensive snaps Sunday, whereas Todd Gurley received 34 and Benny Cunningham played 14. It would likely take a Gurley injury for Brown to carve out a bigger role and earn fleeting fantasy value.
Marquez injured his ankle in the Rams' second preseason game and the team never clarified his status after that. His absence from the team's first injury report indicates that he's made a full recovery and he shouldn't be limited in Los Angeles' Week 1 matchup against San Francisco.
With Nelson Spruce (calf) placed on injured reserve Friday, Countess brings Los Angeles back to having a full, 53-man roster. However, it isn't clear where he slots in on the depth chart given the complicated positional arrangement of the Rams' secondary.
Joyner hasn't missed a game yet this season, and will continue this streak in Week 11 as the back issue appears to be behind him. Joyner figures to get the start at cornerback alongside Trumaine Johnson.
The nature of his ailment remains clouded, but Reynolds is now eligible to sign elsewhere.
Donnal was limited during the Rams' last two days of practice this week, but the hip injury won't prevent him from dressing in Week 13. He'll work in a backup role at right guard behind starter Cody Wichmann.
Easley missed some practice time this past week due to illness but was never expected to miss game time with the injury after he practiced fully on Friday. He likely won't be limited at all.
Davis was limited in practice Friday after sitting out on Wednesday and Thursday. If he's unable to play on Sunday look for Marqui Christian to see a few extra reps.
Robinson was a healthy scratch last Sunday against the Saints because Fisher said "he needed a break". Thus, it appears his benching was merely a motivational tactic.
Gurley was bottled up with rookie quarterback Jared Goff failing to provide any semblance of a threat as a passer. The second-year running back has been unable to get much going as the central member of a poor all-around offense, averaging just 3.2 yards per carry while scoring only four times. Those numbers represent a stark contrast to a wonderful rookie campaign in which Gurley managed 4.8 yards per attempt and found pay dirt on 10 occasions. It doesn't look like things are going to get any better for him down the stretch despite his continued role as the primary running back in Los Angeles.
Hayes sat out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was able to participate in limited fashion on Friday as he dealt with the ankle issue. He's slated to start at defensive end opposite Robert Quinn.
Green, an undrafted rookie free agent, impressed in his preseason debut as he racked up 64 yards and caught the winning touchdown against the Cowboys. The Rams total nine running backs on their roster, but factor in injuries and Tre Mason's bizarre disappearance and Green has a shot to make the 53-man roster if he continues his impactful play. The rookie could get less opportunities in Week 3 as the starters are poised to stay on the field longer, making every carry Green gets that much more valuable.
