Rams' Micah Kiser: Racks up 13 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser finished with 13 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's loss to San Francisco.

Kiser finished tied for the team lead in tackles with John Johnson. He's now registered double digits in tackles in two of five contests so far this season.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Ready for Sunday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Kiser was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest, but the Rams never appeared to seriously doubt that he'd manage to suit up. The third-year pro stands to draw his usual start at linebacker versus San Francisco.

Rams' Micah Kiser: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McVay said Kiser (groin) is officially questionable but is expected to play Sunday versus the 49ers, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Barring a setback, Kiser should start at inside linebacker after a one-game absence. He's been an intriguing IDP option when he's played, as the third-year pro piled up 32 tackles and three pass breakups through the first three games. Kiser's official status will be revealed about 90 minutes before Sunday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Still managing injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser (groin) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.

Kiser was forced to miss last week's game against Washington with the groin issue, however, he appears to be gearing up for a return. The Virginia product had assumed a starting role this season before getting hurt, racking up 32 tackles (21 solo), three pass breakups and a forced fumble. If Kiser is forced to miss more time, Justin Hollins and Troy Reeder would be in line for an uptick in snaps.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Not able to go against Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser (groin) has been ruled out for the Rams' Week 5 matchup against Washington, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Kiser had been in the starting lineup Weeks 1 through 4 after failing to register a single start over his first two years in the league (though he did miss all of 2019 with a torn pectoral injury). The 25-year-old linebacker had already racked up an impressive 32 tackles through the first quarter of Los Angeles' regular-season slate, but now Justin Hollins will see increased usage at middle linebacker against Washington's 30th-ranked rush offense.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Status unclear for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser (groin) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus Washington, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Kiser logged his first practice Friday and operated in a limited capacity, so he has a chance to play Sunday. He's likely on the wrong side of questionable, however, and if he sits out, expect Justin Hollins and Troy Reeder to rotate in alongside starter Kenny Young.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser (groin) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Kiser was declared day-to-day after leaving a Week 4 win over the Giants with pec and groin injuries. He was only listed with the groin injury Wednesday, but he's trending in the wrong direction by sitting out practice altogether. Fellow starting inside linebacker Kenny Young (knee) also missed practice, so Justin Hollins and Troy Reeder are slated to take first-team reps until the two return.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser is considered day-to-day while battling both pec and groin injuries, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

Kiser left the team's Week 4 contest against the Giants early. He had played 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps this season prior to the his exit, so if he is forced to miss the Rams' upcoming contest at Washington, there will be a big void in the middle of the defense.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Giants due to a groin injury.

Kiser normally handles an every-down role on defense, so if he's forced to miss time, it will be a significant blow to Los Angeles' already-thin linebacker corps. Justin Hollins stands to handle an increased role in the meantime.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Ties Rams record with 16 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser tied the Rams single-game record of 16 tackles (11 solo) during Sunday's 37-19 win over Philadelphia.

Make it 23 tackles (17 solo) through two games for Kiser, as the every-down linebacker is quickly proving to be a valuable fantasy asset. Check your waiver wires in IDP settings, because Kiser projects to be a weekly starting option in the majority of formats until proven otherwise.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Plays all 72 defensive snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser played every defensive snap and recorded seven tackles (six solo) and two passes defensed during Sunday's 20-17 win over Dallas.

If Week 1 is any indication of the Rams' linebacker plans, Kiser is set for a significant role and a potentially monster fantasy season. Los Angeles let linebacker Cory Littleton walk during free agency after racking up 259 tackles over the past two years. With Littleton playing for Vegas, it's not out of the question to expect Kiser to approach those high tackle totals as an every-down linebacker for the Rams.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Leading candidate to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser (pectoral) is an early favorite to earn the available starting inside linebacker job in training camp, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

Kiser was listed as a starter on Los Angeles' first official depth chart of 2019, but a torn pectoral suffered during the preseason caused him to spend the entire year on injured reserve. With Cory Littleton having moved on for Las Vegas, the Rams appear to now be counting on a fully healthy Kiser to step up as starter after having been relegated to special teams as a rookie. It could be an open competition in training camp, but as the early leader for a possible three-down role, Kiser warrants monitoring in IDP formats.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Could earn starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams are counting on Kiser (pectoral) to help fill the void left by Cory Littleton's departure to Las Vegas, Gary Klein of the LA Times reports.

A 2018 fifth-round pick, Kiser strictly played special teams as a rookie but reportedly was on track for a starting job in 2019 before he suffered a torn pectoral in mid-August. He spent the entire season on injured reserve, while undrafted rookie Troy Reeder got most of the playing time at inside linebacker alongside Littleton. The Rams now enter mid-April without a reliable starter at the position, but they're reportedly optimistic Kiser can fill one of the spots. A three-down role likely would translate to IDP value, regardless of the actual quality of his play.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Hits IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per the league's official transactions report.

Kiser suffered a season-ending pectoral injury during a preseason game against the Cowboys. The 2018 fifth-round pick will focus on returning to full health.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Heading for surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser is scheduled to undergo surgery on his left pectoral, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Kiser sustained the injury in Saturday's preseason contest against the Cowboys, and he'll go under the knife after receiving an MRI on Sunday. The 24-year-old has no official timeline for his return, and he'll have less than three weeks to recover before potentially missing the start of the regular season. Bryce Hager is expected to take over Kiser's starting role at inside linebacker in the meantime.

Rams' Micah Kiser: Dealing with pectoral injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiser underwent an MRI on Sunday for a pectoral injury he suffered in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The severity of the injury is unclear, and the Rams should provide an update on Kiser's timetable once they get the results of the MRI. Bryce Hager would be in line to start at inside linebacker should Kiser be forced to miss an extended amount of time.
