  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Held in check in finale

    Skowronek failed to catch either of his two targets during Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to San Francisco. He played 17 of 65 offensive snaps.

    While Skowronek finished the regular season with a modest 11 receptions for 133 yards, he did climb into a consistent role as the No. 4 receiver down the stretch for Los Angeles. The rookie probably hasn't been dependable enough to rely on in the majority of postseason fantasy settings, but he is receiving semi-regular playing time for those in cavernous formats or who are looking for a true flier.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Plays 27 snaps in close win

    Skowronek caught two targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 20-19 win over Baltimore.

    The rookie played 27 of 58 offensive snaps, which nearly matched Van Jefferson's 31, as Skowronek continues to be deployed in a supporting role in the passing attack. Still, Skowronek has just nine receptions for 115 yards for the campaign, and those numbers hardly move the fantasy needle in most formats.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Not targeted in win

    Skowronek didn't log a target while playing four of the Rams' 70 snaps on offense in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Vikings.

    While playing behind fellow wideouts Cooper Kupp, Odell Beckham and Van Jefferson, Skowronek will likely continue to see limited opportunities, even in a high-powered Los Angeles passing attack.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Busy in win over Seahawks

    Skowronek caught four of five targets for 42 yards during Tuesday's 20-10 win over Seattle.

    The rookie's four receptions for 42 yards were both career-high marks, and for what it's worth, Skowronek's stat line was better than the combined numbers of Odell Beckham and Van Jefferson in Tuesday's win. Still, Skowronek mainly worked underneath, and it's unlikely he leapfrogs either Beckham or Jefferson in fantasy value in the foreseeable future. Additionally, tight end Tyler Higbee's eventual return from the reserve/COVID-19 list should also cut into Skowronek's target share.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Hauls in career-long gain

    Skowronek caught one of his two targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 37-7 win over Jacksonville. He played 16 offensive snaps.

    The rookie out of Notre Dame started and saw more run in the offense than normal Sunday, and he also made a career-long catch on the first Los Angeles possession of the second quarter. Skowronek probably received the boost in playing time because Odell Beckham was nursing a hip injury, and while he currently has limited upside, it does appear Skowronek has established himself as the No. 4 wide receiver on the depth chart.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Full participant Thursday

    Skowronek (back) was a full participant in Thursday's practice session, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

    Skowronek was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, but his status improved Thursday. It appears as though the kick returner will be able to return Sunday against the Jaguars following his one-game absence.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Limited Wednesday

    Skowronek (back) was listed as limited on Wednesday's practice estimate, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN reports.

    Skowronek is still dealing with the back injury that kept him out of last week's loss to Green Bay. His participation, or lack there of, in practice Thursday and Friday should dictate whether the kick returner will suit up Sunday against the Jaguars.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Won't play Sunday

    Skowronek (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers.

    Skowronek was originally considered questionable for Sunday's contest, but he's now been downgraded to out. J.J. Koski should serve as the Rams' No. 4 wideout behind Cooper Kupp, Odell Beckham and Van Jefferson in Green Bay.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Pops up on injury report

    Skowronek (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Skowronek apparently picked up the injury in practice Thursday as he didn't appear on the injury report until a day later. If he can't play, J.J. Koski would likely see more playing time, particularly on special teams.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Playing Monday

    Skowronek (thigh) is active for Monday's game at San Francisco, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

    Skowronek made a late appearance on the Rams' Week 10 injury report, logging no activity Saturday due to a thigh injury. It won't prevent him from suiting up Monday, and there's also an expectation he may enter the starting lineup in the wake of Robert Woods' torn ACL, per Jay Glazer of Fox Sports. Such a development may come to pass, but the rookie seventh-round pick has just three receptions (on three targets) for 30 yards in seven appearances to date. Skowronek also will have to contend for snaps and looks from Matthew Stafford with Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson and newcomer Odell Beckham. As a result, a wait-and-see approach may be the prudent one to take with Skowronek, who averaged 13.4 yards per catch and scored 13 TDs in 45 collegiate games between Northwestern and Notre Dame.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Plays season-high snaps

    Skowronek caught one of his five targets for eight yards during Monday's 31-10 loss to San Francisco. He played a season-high 42 offensive snaps.

    The boost in playing time is unlikely to continue for the rookie. Snowronek received extra run because recently acquired wide receiver Odell Beckham didn't have enough preparation time to learn the entire playbook ahead of Monday's action. With a Week 11 bye, Skowronek is likely to revert back to a secondary role and slot in as the fourth receiver on the depth chart. He's probably off the fantasy radar in the majority of settings.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Questionable for Monday night

    Skowronek is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 49ers with a thigh injury.

    Skowronek was a late addition to the Rams' injury report after the thigh issue prevented him from practicing Saturday. If he's able to show enough improvement leading up to Monday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, Skowronek will not only suit up, but he could pick up his first career NFL start. According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, Skowronek is expected to start in place of Robert Woods (knee), who sustained a season-ending ACL tear in Friday's practice. Even so, Skowronek likely won't handle the 90-plus-percent snap share that Woods typically logged, and the rookie seventh-round pick will more than likely see his role shrink further after Week 10. Newly acquired Odell Beckham is expected to be eased into the mix Monday with a lighter package of snaps, but once he's up to speed with the playbook, he should regularly share the field with Cooper Kupp and Van Jefferson in three-receiver sets.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Hauls in all three targets

    Skowronek caught all of his three targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 38-22 win over Houston.

    The rookie played a season-high 20 offensive snaps and caught the first passes of his career Sunday. He's a beneficiary of DeSean Jackson's trade request, as Jackson isn't projected to play while awaiting a transaction. Additionally, with Tutu Atwell sustaining a shoulder injury Sunday, Skowronek probably has climbed into the fourth spot on the wide receiver depth chart. However, it's likely best to continue taking a wait-and-see approach with Skowronek outside of cavernous dynasty settings.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Returns kicks against Lions

    Skowronek returned four kickoffs for 70 yards during Sunday's 28-19 win over Detroit.

    This was the first game the rookie has returned kicks for the Rams, and it will be interesting to see if he keeps the job after fellow rookie Tutu Atwell handled the role the previous two weeks. While probably not fantasy relevant in most settings, it's still a minor development to note.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Won't face Colts

    Skowronek (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 contest against the Colts, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Skowronek missed the team's opening game of the season due to a forearm injury. While he was taken off the injury report leading up to Week 2, Skowronek will have to wait at least one more week to make his season debut.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: No longer on injured list

    Skowronek (forearm) isn't listed on the Rams' injury report Wednesday.

    Skowronek was unable to play in the Rams' season opener against the Bears as he was still recovering from the forearm surgery he underwent in August. Now that he's off the injured list, the 2021 seventh-round pick will fill a depth role in the Rams' crowded receiver room. The rookie will hope to make his season debut Sunday against the Colts.

  • Rams' Ben Skowronek: Officially inactive

    Skowronek (forearm) is inactive for Sunday's Week 1 matchup against the Bears, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Skowronek was considered doubtful for Sunday's season opener as he continues to recover from forearm surgery that he underwent in mid-August. Once he's healthy, the 2021 seventh-rounder is expected to serve as depth at receiver.
