Rams' Leonard Floyd: Joins Rams to replace Fowler
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd agreed Wednesday with the Rams on a one-year, $10 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Released by Chicago on Tuesday, the 27-year-old now steps in as a replacement at outside linebacker for Dante Fowler, who is leaving Los Angeles for Atlanta. Teams around the league have been playing musical chairs with pass rushers, and it's hard to sell this as anything but a downgrade for the Rams, though they'll at least save some cap space in the process. Floyd was the No. 9 overall pick in the 2016 draft, but he produced just 18.5 sacks and 44 quarterback hits in 54 regular-season games with the Bears. His contract can go up to $13 million with incentives.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Set to be released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears will release Floyd, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Yates notes that Floyd was due $13.22 million on his fifth-year option, a sum that would have become guaranteed Wednesday. The move to part ways with the 2016 first-rounder frees up salary cap space for the Bears' pending signing of Robert Quinn.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Finishes worst year of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd posted one stop in the Bears' 21-19 victory over the Vikings in Week 17, and he finished the year with 40 tackles and three sacks.

For the second straight year, Floyd played in all 16 games, but, unfortunately, he posted a career-low in sacks and he's never had fewer tackles per game. He'll enter the last season of his five-year contract with the Bears in 2020, but he won't be a recommended fantasy option in typical leagues.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Clear of rib injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd (ribs) wasn't listed on Monday's injury report, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Floyd suffered a rib injury during last Thursday's win over the Lions, but it doesn't appear as though the injury will impact his status for this week. The 27-year-old should play his near every-down role Thursday against the Cowboys.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Nursing rib injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd suffered a rib injury during Thursday's 24-20 win over the Lions, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

The fourth-year linebacker had an X-ray during the game but ended up returning, and he didn't appear hindered, as he logged an 82-percent snap share during the Thanksgiving Day contest. It'll be worth monitoring his practice status leading up to this Thursday's matchup against the Cowboys.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Registers sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd recorded a sack and six tackles in Chicago's 22-14 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

With the Eagles leading this game throughout, they ran the ball 35 times, which led to Floyd posting a season-high in tackles. In addition, his third sack of the season was the first one he's posted since Week 1, and he's been a disappointing fantasy option due to his inability to generate consistent sack numbers.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Impressive in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd notched a pair of sacks while adding four tackles in the Bears' loss to the Packers on Thursday.

With the Chicago defense looking as strong as ever, Floyd led the charge by posting two of the team's five sacks. After recording just 8.5 sacks over the past two seasons, he's looking to return to the level of player who had seven sacks in 12 games as a rookie in 2016. For those hurting for pass rushers in IDP leagues, Floyd could be worth adding to see if he can build off his strong performance as defenses key on Khalil Mack.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Sits out preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd was rested during the Bears' 27-17 victory over the Colts on Saturday.

Going into his second year playing alongside Khalil Mack, it's possible that Floyd re-establishes himself as a strong pass rusher, and although he's not a hot commodity in IDP leagues, he's a player who can be drafted for potential and upside. In shallow leagues, he'll be a player to monitor on the waiver wire.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: On books through 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears officially exercised the fifth-year option on Floyd's rookie contract Wednesday, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.

The Georgia product put together a complete 16-game season for the first time in his career in 2018 after missing at least four games in both of his first two seasons. While the 2016 first-round pick is no longer playing under the oversight of defensive guru Vic Fangio, Floyd remains set to serve in a starting edge role opposite superstar Khalil Mack. In that same role last season, Floyd produced 47 tackles, four sacks and a pick-six.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Fifth-year option to be picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to general manager Ryan Pace, Floyd will have his fifth-year option exercised, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Floyd finished the year with only four sacks but was still a key asset on a Bears defense that finished first in the NFL in scoring defense in 2018. Chicago's pass-rushing personnel should remain a formidable unit next season with Floyd, Khalil Mack (knee), Aaron Lynch and Isaiah Irving on the edge.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Finishes first healthy season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd notched eight tackles in the Bears' Week 17 win over Minnesota, and he closed out the season with 49 tackles and four sacks.

Overall, Floyd's performance was disappointing, as his production on a per-game basis showed no substantial growth over his previous two years with the Bears. He'll be entering the fourth year of his rookie deal in 2019, a campaign that sets up as a pivotal one for him. Floyd should have every opportunity to improve his sack numbers, since defenses will be kept busy trying to neutralize the fearsome duo of Khalil Mack and Roquan Smith. Unless he pops in the 2019 preseason, he'll be a risky fantasy selection in IDP drafts.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Big day in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd collected a pair of sacks and six tackles in the Bears' 24-17 win over Green Bay.

Not only did Floyd post his first multisack game of the year, but he also posted a season-high in tackles. He's come on strong in the second half of the season, as he's notched four sacks along with a pick-six over his last seven games, and he's a player to use for upside in weekly lineups.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Collects third sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd tallied a sack and three tackles in the Bears' Week 13 overtime loss to the Giants.

Although he's had a fairly quiet season, Floyd has been coming on lately, as he's notched a pair of sacks and an interception over the last five games. While he's an inconsistent IDP with a low floor, his ability to make plays gives him weekly upside.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Notches first sack of 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd posted a sack and a tackle in Chicago's Week 10 victory over the Lions.

After returning an interception for a touchdown last week, Floyd followed that up with his first sack of the season. Unfortunately, he's averaging fewer than three tackles per contest, and his weekly downside may be too significant to overlook when considering him in fantasy lineups.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Scores touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd scored a touchdown on an interception while adding three tackles in the Bears' 41-9 win over the Bills.

Floyd had an easy score when intercepting an ill-advised pass by Nathan Peterman in Chicago's blowout victory. Despite his big play, he's yet to record a sack in 2018, and he's failed to establish himself as a reliable IDP in 2018.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Progressing in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Nagy said Floyd will likely have the use of his fingers against the Cardinals on Sunday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Floyd is also likely to have a smaller club on his broken hand, Nagy said. The starting linebacker has been participating in practice and suiting up for games despite the injury, but Floyd is obviously not 100 percent without the full use of his right hand. Already a key piece in Chicago's defensive scheme, it's worth monitoring whether the 26-year-old sees an increased role whenever he manages to fully recover.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd (hand) wasn't among the players on the Bears' injury report Tuesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Floyd went through a light practice session Monday and appears to have progressed to full participation Wednesday with the regular-season opener Sunday night against the Packers looming. There's nothing at this point to suggest he won't suit up for the contest.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Goes through light practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd (hand) went through a light practice Monday while wearing a club on his right hand, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun Times reports. "He was out there running around, just going through his assignments," head coach Matt Nagy said. '"Nothing's affected with his legs, so he was good there. You just gotta get used to feeling how that is with your hand in a club. But he did well."

Floyd is expected to play with a club on his hand in Sunday night's season-opener against the Packers, which means he will spend the entirety of this week getting use to the feeling. Look for more updates to come when the Bears release their official injury report.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Expected to play Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd (hand) is expected to play Week 1, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The beginning of Floyd's career has been somewhat marred by an assortment of injuries. Fortunately for both Floyd and the Bears, Floyd's recent surgery isn't expected to keep him out of the regular season opener. The hand situation will be something to monitor leading into the regular season, but it doesn't seem to be all that serious at the moment.

Bears' Leonard Floyd: Undergoes surgery on fractured hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd underwent surgery on his fractured right hand Sunday, The Athletic's Kevin Fishbain reports.

Floyd went down with the hand injury during Saturday's preseason tilt against the Broncos, but the Bears are optimistic he'll be available for Week 1 of the regular season despite his recent surgery. The starting outside linebacker wouldn't be at 100 percent, but he could potentially play with a club or cast on the hand at that point. In the meantime, Isaiah Irving and Kasim Edebali could see additional reps with the first-team defense across from Sam Acho.
