  • Chargers' Troy Reeder: Signs one-year deal with Chargers

    Reeder signed a one-year contract with the Chargers on Saturday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Reeder appeared in all 17 regular-season games (10 starts) for the Rams last season, but they opted not to tender the linebacker, which would've allowed them to match the offer he got from the Chargers. Regardless, the undrafted linebacker out of Delaware now will join the other team in Los Angeles and attempt to bolster what was a porous run defense from a year ago.

  • Rams' Troy Reeder: Activated from COVID-19 list

    Reeder (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday. Reeder landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, but he'll be able to rejoin the team ahead of Tuesday's matchup against Seattle. The 27-year-old has totaled 17 tackles (seven solo) across the last three games and could see an uptick in playing time Tuesday since several other linebackers remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

  • Rams' Troy Reeder: Posts season-high tackle total

    Reeder recorded 11 tackles (three solo) during Monday's 31-10 loss to San Francisco. He also led all Los Angeles linebackers in defensive snaps. The third-year linebacker has picked up an impressive 28 tackles (11 solo) through the past four games, and that includes his two-tackle showing last week. While Reeder might not be a must-start option in IDP settings, he's proving to have a respectable fantasy floor, and his playing time is on the rise. Just note, Los Angeles is on a bye this week, and Reeder might not be worth a bench stash.

  • Rams' Troy Reeder: Turns in huge second half

    Reeder recorded 81 tackles (53 solo), three sacks and two pass breakups over 16 appearances during the 2020 regular season. The 26-year-old linebacker was elevated into an extended role in place of Micah Kiser (knee) down the stretch and was highly productive, totaling 80 tackles (44 solo) over Los Angeles' final six regular-season games and two postseason contests. If he earns a full-time starting spot heading into 2021, Reeder will be worth considering in most IDP formats.

  • Rams' Troy Reeder: Notches 11 tackles in loss

    Reeder collected 11 total tackles and one pass deflection during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Jets. An injury to Micah Kiser (knee) continues to open up opportunities to Reeder, as the Delaware standout has started each of the past four weeks after registering just one start over his first 10 appearances of 2020. When given a substantial role, Reeder has produced, reaching double-digit tackles in four of his five starting opportunities while collecting three sacks in a breakout Week 5 effort against Washington.

  • Rams' Troy Reeder: Puts up 10 tackles

    Reeder recorded 10 tackles (six solo) and a pass breakup in Sunday's 38-28 win over the Cardinals. Reeder has played more than 26 percent of the snaps on defense on just three occasions during his second NFL season. Each time, he posted 10 or more stops. The 26-year-old linebacker will remain in the starting role for at least the Week 14 matchup against New England. Micah Kiser (knee) is eligible to return in Week 15, so Reeder could revert to a reserve role at that time.

  • Rams' Troy Reeder: Shows off in starting role

    Reeder recorded 15 tackles (12 solo) during Sunday's 23-20 loss to San Francisco. It was a career day for the second-year linebacker, as Reeder took advantage of his starting opportunity. With Micah Kiser (knee) sidelined, look for Reeder to continue posting high tackle totals and providing reliable fantasy production. He should be rostered in the majority of IDP settings for the duration of Kiser's absence.

  • Rams' Troy Reeder: Excels in situational duty

    Reeder played 300 defensive and 306 special-teams snaps this season and recorded 58 tackles (36 solo). The undrafted free agent carved out a meaningful role with the Rams this season and received consistent defensive snaps in the linebacker rotation. Reeder was particularly successful in Weeks 5 and 6 when he collected an impressive 24 tackles (16 solo). If he receives more playing time next year, the 24-year-old linebacker's fantasy value should also increase.

  • Rams' Troy Reeder: Finishes with 13 tackles

    Reeder recorded a team-high 13 tackles (eight solo) in a 30-29 loss to the Seahawks on Thursday. The rookie linebacker saw 54 defensive snaps Thursday, a week after playing just 18. The uptick in usage is certainly an encouraging development for Reeder after he was originally viewed as a long shot to make the Rams out of camp. Los Angeles is also dealing with a plethora of injuries at the linebacker position, which has also affected Reeder's usage in the last two weeks.
