Robey-Coleman had a solid 2017 season with the Rams, as he compiled 49 tackles, nine pass breakups and two interceptions in 15 games. However, he'll have to battle for defensive snaps now that the Chiefs' Marcus Peters and the Broncos' Aqib Talib were traded to the Rams. Therefore, he may be a solid depth corner for the Rams, but fantasy owners should be aware his snap count may decline.
Robey-Coleman recorded 49 tackles (39 solo) and two interceptions during the 2017 season.
The first-year Ram played primarily in nickel sets while manning the slot this season, and it's a role he's beginning to be pigeonholed into. Robey-Coleman is set to become an unrestricted free agent during the offseason along with fellow defensive backs Trumaine Johnson and Lamarcus Joyner, so Los Angeles has some question marks in the secondary to address. If Robey-Coleman were to open 2018 as a cornerback (with the Rams or another team), it could provide a notable boost to his fantasy value. However, it's more likely that he continues serving as a nickleback.
Robey-Coleman (thigh) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.
Head coach Sean McVay hinted earlier in the week that Robey-Coleman was expected to return to action this week after sitting out of Sunday's game against the Saints. With no limitations in practice, the cornerback can shift his focus to containing the Cardinals' passing attack this week.
Robey-Coleman did not play in Sunday's win over the Saints after not practicing last week, but McVay said that he is now "90-95 percent healthy." The 25-year-old's practice reps Wednesday and the rest of the week should indicate the accuracy of his coach's assessment and his availability for Week 13.
Robey-Coleman (thigh) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Coleman exited the Week 11 loss to the Vikings with the thigh injury and was unable to practice this week, effectively sealing his fate for Sunday's contest. With the fifth-year cornerback unavailable, Dominique Hatfield and Kayvon Webster could be thrust into enhanced roles in the secondary.
