Rams' Michael Brockers: Records sack in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers posted a season-high eight tackles (four solo) and one sack in Monday's 45-6 loss to the Ravens.

Brockers had been held in check the previous two weeks against the Bears and Steelers, but the Rams' defense remained busy Monday while failing to contain Lamar Jackson and the Ravens' potent offensive attack. Brockers has logged at least 50 defensive snaps in four consecutive games.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Marks half sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers recorded five tackles (four solo) and 0.5 sacks in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Bengals in London.

Brockers hasn't been credited with a sack since Week 2 against the Saints, but he's on a career pace for tackles with 34 stops through eight games. Chalk that up to the increase in usage, as Brockers has already played 413 defensive snaps this year after finishing with 683 last season. The snap share could taper off as the wear and tear of the season carries on, but Brockers will first enjoy a Week 9 bye to mend any existing wounds.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers (illness) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Brockets was held out of Thursday's practice while nursing an illness, but he appears to have put it behind him completely. With Brockers' illness seemingly a non-issue now, he should be a full go come Sunday.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Managing illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers will not practice Thursday due to an illness, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

The nature and severity of Brockers' illness remain undisclosed, making it difficult to determine his chances of suiting up Week 4 against the Buccaneers at this time. The starting defensive end's practice level Friday will be worth monitoring.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Proves health in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers played 52 of 65 defensive snaps and recorded three tackles (one solo) and a sack during Sunday's 27-9 win over New Orleans. He'd missed both Wednesday's and Thursday's practices with a shoulder injury.

The veteran collected just a single sack during the 2018 campaign, so if he can add a few more to his resume this year, his fantasy value would climb noticeably. Brockers has been a reliable source of tackles the past two seasons, and there's potential for him to get after opposing quarterbacks more often with opponents also needing to account for Aaron Donald, Clay Matthews and Dante Fowler Jr.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers (shoulder) doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Sunday's matchup with the Saints, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

Brockers wasn't able to practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he was a full participant in Friday's session. The 29-year-old's full participation would indicate that he's ready to play Sunday against the Saints. Head coach Sean McVay expressed optimism Thursday that Brockers would play, and his full participation Friday certainly supports that notion.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Hoping to play Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Sean McVay said Thursday that he's "optimistic" that Brockers (shoulder) will be able to play Sunday versus the Saints, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

Brockers missed another practice Thursday after not being able to practice Wednesday. It's unclear when the 28-year-old sustained the injury, as he was present for 49 of the defense's snaps (73 percent) last Sunday against Carolina. If Brockers can't suit up Sunday against the Saints, either Morgan Fox or Tanzel Smart would replace him in the Rams' defensive front.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers officially was listed as a non-participant for Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder injury.

It's unclear how the veteran picked up the injury, as he played a total of 49 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over Carolina. Regardless, the fact that Brockers didn't suit up for practice should raise some concern. The team likely will continue to update his practice availability throughout the week, but if he can't go Sunday, Brockers likely would be replaced by Morgan Fox at defensive end.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Turns in another solid campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers finished the regular season with 54 tackles (21 solo) and a sack.

While often overshadowed by fellow defensive linemen Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh, Brockers turned in another solid season for the Rams. However, his on-field play didn't translate to consistent fantasy results, and Brockers will probably struggle to be anything more than a fringe contributor in IDP settings again in 2019.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers (shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports reports.

Brockers suffered a sprained shoulder during the Rams' win over Denver in Week 6, but appears to have recovered from the injury. Expect Brockers to play his normal starting role against the 49ers on Sunday.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Dealing with sprained shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers sprained his shoulder in Week 6 against the Broncos, but he's expected to play in Week 7 against the 49ers, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Barring a setback, Brockers is expected to take up his normal position as a starter on the defensive line. If he is limited for any reason, John Franklin-Myers is in line for a larger role for the Rams up front.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Participating in voluntary workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers (knee), who revealed that he's recovering from a torn MCL, took part in the Rams' team activities Monday, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN reports.

Brockers sprained his right knee in the Rams' wild-card loss to the Falcons this past January. His availability for the start of Monday's voluntary workouts is a sign that he's close to full strength, but it's possible the defensive lineman is still operating under some sort of physical limitations.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Won't need knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers, who sprained his right knee injury in Saturday's 26-13 NFC wild-card loss to the Falcons, won't require offseason surgery, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

It appears only rest and rehab will be on the docket for Brockers before the Rams reconvene in April for offseason workouts. The nose tackle wrapped up 2017 with a career-high 55 tackles (39 solo) and 4.5 sacks across 16 regular-season contests.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers (knee) won't return to Saturday's wild-card game against the Falcons.

Brockers had two tackles and 0.5 sacks before leaving his matchup. His absence leaves Tyrunn Walker as the only defensive tackle on Saturday's roster, while Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has been taking advantage of the Rams' thin defensive line by using a hurry-up offense.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Sustains knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers is questionable to return to Saturday's wild-card game against the Falcons with a right knee injury, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Brockers suffered the injury as his right leg twisted underneath himself when he and Aaron Donald combined to sack Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. Brockers was evaluated on the sideline by trainers and was seen sporting an ice pack. The 27-year-old would represent a major loss for the interior of the Rams defense if he cannot return, which would leave Tyrunn Walker as the lone remaining defensive tackle on the Rams' 53-man roster.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Marks half sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers had one tackle and a half sack Sunday against Seattle.

The Rams brought down Seattle QB Russell Wilson seven times Sunday, so it was almost by default that Brockers got in there at some point. The sixth-year pro isn't known for his pass-rushing skills, so this was an added bonus for fantasy owners that stuck with him for his consistent tackle counts.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Leaves mark on Week 10 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers recorded three tackles (two solo), a sack and a pass defensed during Sunday's 33-7 win over Houston.

Brockers is quietly posting respectable fantasy numbers with 15 tackles (13 solo) and two sacks through the past four games. Still, he's probably more of a matchup-based option than a go-to asset in most IDP settings.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Picks up second sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers played 46 of 69 defensive snaps and recorded four tackles and a sack during Sunday's 27-17 win over Jacksonville.

The sack was Brockers' second in two weeks, and if the trend continues, he could begin warranting more fantasy attention. He has a respectable 25 tackles (20 solo) and two sacks through six games, but in most IDP settings, that's hardly moved the needle.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Plays 54 snaps in Week 5 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers played 54 of 68 defensive snaps and recorded three tackles (one solo) during Sunday's 16-10 loss to Seattle.

Despite seeing plenty of playing time, Brockers has struggled to move the fantasy needle with just 21 tackles (16 solo) and one sack through five games. He's probably nothing more than a bye-week replacement at this stage of the game.

Rams' Michael Brockers: Set to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brockers (groin) is slated to play in Sunday's tilt against the Panthers, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

Brockers' Week 10 status wasn't too iffy after practicing in full on Friday, despite him missing practice earlier in the week due to the minor groin issue.
