  • Rams' Jake Funk: Rushes twice against Cards

    Funk rushed twice for five yards during the 34-11 wild-card round victory over Arizona on Monday. He played four offensive snaps.

    The seventh-round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft matched his regular-season numbers against the Cardinals on Monday. Funk rushed once in the second quarter and on the final offensive play of the game for the Rams, and he projects to have a limited role again this week against the Buccaneers with Cam Akers and Sony Michel healthy and running well.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: Plays two snaps Week 16

    Funk carried once for minus-1 yard while playing two of the Rams' 70 offensive snaps in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Vikings.

    Sony Michel carried the load for the Rams, toting the rock 27 times and leaving little work left over for anyone else. With Darrell Henderson (knee) moving to injured reserve Tuesday, Funk could be first in line to ascend to the No. 2 role Week 17 in Baltimore, but he's not likely to have a major role behind Michel. Additionally, Cam Akers (Achilles) could be ready to make his season debut this weekend, in which case Funk would be third in line for backfield work.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: Activated off IR

    The Rams activated Funk (hamstring) to the active roster Tuesday.

    Funk was originally expected to be out for the season, but he is now back with the Rams' active roster and could potentially suit up Tuesday against the Seahawks. Although he is very close to being fully healthy, the running back will likely continue to mostly see the field on special teams.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: Designated for return

    Funk (hamstring) was designated to return from IR on Sunday.

    Funk was placed on IR on Oct. 19 after it was originally reported that he was done for the season. Now that Funk has been designated to return, he has a 21-day window to prove he is healthy enough to be moved to the main roster or he will officially be out for the rest of the season.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: Moved to IR

    Funk (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    This move comes as no surprise, as the running back was ruled out for the remainder of the season Monday. The 23-year-old mostly operated as a special teams option this year, only playing 17 offensive snaps in six contests.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: Shut down for season

    Funk has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2021 season due to a torn hamstring that may require surgery, J.B. Long of the Los Angeles Rams Radio Network reports.

    Funk has been lost for the season after picking up a hamstring injury in Sunday's matchup against the Giants. He appeared in six contests, rushing once for six yards while accruing 88 yards on kick returns.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: Picks up hamstring injury

    Funk (hamstring) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Giants, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.

    It's unclear when Funk picked up the injury, but hamstring problems are unpredictable, and there's no clarity regarding his potential return to action. He wasn't expected to hold a big role on offense with Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel both available, though.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: Downgraded to out

    Funk (hamstring) won't return to Sunday's game against the Giants, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.

    As expected, Funk has been downgraded and won't return to the game -- which was a likely scenario given how tricky hamstring injuries can be. His next chance to play will be in Week 7 against the Lions, but his availability will depend on the severity of the injury.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: No offensive snaps Week 4

    Funk played exclusively on special teams and didn't record any stats during Sunday's 37-20 loss to the Cardinals.

    With Darrell Henderson inactive for Week 3, Funk saw 14 offensive snaps. However, with Henderson back in the mix for Week 4, the rookie was relegated to special-teams duties. The Maryland product is firmly supplanted behind both Sony Michel and Henderson on the depth chart and does not provide any immediate fantasy upside.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: Handles single carry in win

    Funk rushed once for six yards and played 14 offensive snaps during Sunday's 34-24 win over Tampa Bay.

    The rookie's only carry was the first rush of the game for the Rams, and then Funk gave way to Sony Michel. Michel took 20 totes for 67 yards, and while those numbers don't jump off the stat sheet, the Buccaneers boast a formidable run defense. With Darrell Henderson (ribs) potentially back in the mix for Week 4, and Michel clearly ahead of Funk in the backfield pecking order, there's not a lot of immediate fantasy upside for the first year rusher out of Maryland.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: To have bigger role Sunday

    Funk is set for an expanded role Sunday against the Buccaneers with Darrell Henderson (ribs) inactive for the contest, Jordan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Rodrigue labels Funk as a "featured" back along with veteran Sony Michel, but given the latter's edge in experience and solid second-half showing (10 carries, 46 yards) against the Colts in Week 2, it's reasonable to expect he'll pace the backfield in carries. Nevertheless, Funk should be in line for a solid complementary role at a minimum after playing just three snaps from scrimmage over the first two games of his NFL career, all coming last Sunday against Indianapolis.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: Little action in win

    Funk logged three snaps on offense during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Colts.

    Funk failed to see any rushing attempts or targets in the contest. The rookie running back has not been a part of the Rams' offensive game plan through two weeks, as he is seeing most of his playing time on special teams. Instead, Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel have been carrying the load in the backfield. Henderson suffered a rib injury in Week 2, but the Rams are optimistic about his ability to practice this week. Although Michel would be the biggest beneficiary if Henderson has to miss time, it is plausible Funk would take on a role on offense as well.

  • Rams' Jake Funk: No offensive snaps

    Funk logged 11 snaps on special teams during Sunday's 34-14 win over the Bears.

    Funk failed to see any snaps on offense, as fellow running backs Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel carried the load. Henderson totaled 16 carries while Michel logged just one carry. As the No. 3 running back on the team, Funk will likely have difficulty finding consistent opportunities on offense. It's hard to imagine a path to fantasy relevance for the 5-foot-10, 203-pound rookie if both Henderson and Michel can stay healthy. The Rams are set to take on the Colts in Week 2.
