  • Rams' Sean Mannion: Strengthens case for backup job
    By RotoWire Staff

    Mannion completed 16 of 29 pass attempts for 214 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's preseason loss to the Chargers. Mannion is battling with Dan Orlovsky for the backup job behind starter Jared Goff. While Mannion was just mediocre Saturday, Orlovsky has only attempted five passes through three preseason games, so the quarterback pecking order is pretty clear. Still, there aren't many fantasy settings where Mannion is worth a roster spot.

  • Rams' Sean Mannion: Backup duty likely Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Mannion is trending toward handling backup duties to starting quarterback Jared Goff (concussion) on Saturday against the 49ers, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports. On Tuesday, Goff handled a full allotment of reps at practice, after which interim head coach John Fassel stated the rookie has entered the final stage of the concussion protocol. Goff will thus have three days to meet with an independent neurologist and gain clearance for game action. If the preceding occurs, as expected, Goff will assume his typical mantle, while Mannion usurps veteran Case Keenum as the Rams looks toward the future.

  • Rams' Sean Mannion: May start Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Mannion could earn the start Saturday against the 49ers in the event Jared Goff (concussion) is unable to play, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports. When Goff wasn't deemed ready to serve as the backup QB at the beginning of the season, Mannion was active behind Case Keenum for Weeks 1 and 2. In the interim, Mannion has donned street clothes while Goff worked his way into the lead role, which the latter has handled in each of the last five games. Now with a concussion in tow, Goff's immediate availability is precarious, to say the least. Thus, the Rams will take two things into consideration: due to Keenum's free-agent status in the offseason, the organization wants to see what they have in Mannion, a third-round pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, meaning he may be under center Saturday.

  • Rams' Sean Mannion: Named backup quarterback
    By RotoWire Staff

    Mannion has been named the Rams' backup quarterback to begin the season, Lindsey Thiry of the Los Angeles Times reports. 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.

  • Mannion completed 18 of 25 passes for 147 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 28-24 preseason victory over the Cowboys. He also gained a yard on two rushes. The 2015 third-round pick received some extended playing time after 2016 No.1 overall pick Jared Goff took an early powder due to a sore shoulder. Mannion made the most of his opportunity, leading the Rams to a rousing comeback from what had been a 21-0 deficit at one point in the first half. He connected with running back Chase Reynolds for the first of his three scores in the third quarter, before coming back with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns to Nelson Spruce and Aaron Green. Although he appears destined for a No. 3 role to start the season given the fact that Case Keenum is likely to start while Goff waits in the wings, Mannion can certainly give the Rams' coaching staff something to think about with continued preseason showings the caliber of Saturday's effort.
