Rams' Kenny Young: Bounces back in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young managed 52 tackles (31 solo), one sack, two pass breakups, an interception and a fumble recovery across 16 games in 2020.

Young, who only had 17 tackles in his last two seasons, bounced back to rookie-year form in 2020. His rotational role doesn't lend itself to much real fantasy upside in IDP formats, but his resurgence as a consistent contributor should give the Rams some confidence in his upside as a developmental option. He'll play out the final year of his rookie contract with Los Angeles in 2021.

Rams' Kenny Young: Huge day versus Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had eight tackles (six solo), one sack, one pass defensed and a pick-six during Thursday's 24-3 win over the Patriots.

Not only did Young notch his highest tackle total of the season Thursday, he also turned his first INT of the year into a pick-six while picking up his first sack of 2020. Young also handled more than half of defensive snaps (69 percent) for the first time since Week 5.

Rams' Kenny Young: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (knee) won't carry an injury tag into Sunday's game versus Washington, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Young started the practice week sidelined but made progress every day, eventually working as a full participant Friday. The 25-year-old inside linebacker will start Sunday's matchup and look to add to the 14 tackles he's registered through four games.

Rams' Kenny Young: Trending in right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (knee) was limited during Thursday's practice session, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Young was able to field 50 percent of the Rams' defensive snaps during a Week 4 win against the Giants, and he wasn't reported as having an issue until popping up on the injury report Wednesday. The 25-year-old sat out the first practice session of the week altogether, but now he's trending towards making his fifth appearance of the season, this time against Kyle Allen and Washington's bottom-three scoring offense.

Rams' Kenny Young: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

This injury may have popped up this past Sunday against the Giants, as Young logged a season-low 34 defensive snaps. Micah Kiser (groin) also missed practice Wednesday, and if both are unable to play Sunday against Washington, expect Justin Hollins and Troy Reeder to serve as the starting inside linebackers.

Rams' Kenny Young: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young does not appear on Wednesday's injury report, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Young exited last weekend's game against the 49ers due to an ankle injury, but his complete absence from the injury report suggests the injury is not much of a concern.

Rams' Kenny Young: Goes down with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young exited Saturday's loss to San Francisco with an ankle injury.

Young has exclusively played special teams since being traded to the Rams in October, and he didn't record a tackle before suffering the injury. The 25-year-old's status should be updated when the Rams return to practice Wednesday.

Rams' Kenny Young: Traded to Rams for Peters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was traded with a 2020 fifth-round pick from the Ravens to the Rams for CB Marcus Peters on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Young was a healthy scratch and played zero defensive snaps in the last two games for the Ravens, and he'll now get a chance to prove his worth for a new team. The 2018 fourth-round pick had 51 tackles (40 solo), 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 16 games last season, including three starts.

Ravens' Kenny Young: Inactive Sunday vs. Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 5 matchup with Pittsburgh, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Young's inactive status comes as a bit of a surprise after he logged a few starts and no less than 17 defensive snaps per game through the first-four weeks of the season. Baltimore signed inside linebackers L.J. Fort and Josh Bynes this week, both of whom are active in place of Young.

Ravens' Kenny Young: First career start on tap?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was spotted running with the starters in warmups ahead of Sunday's clash against the Dolphins, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Early reports out of camp suggested Young could draw the start for Week 1, and those reports seem to have came to fruition. The second-year pro was solid in a more limited role last year, racking up 51 tackles (40), and could expect his numbers to climb if he can stick with the starters throughout 2019.

Ravens' Kenny Young: Gets shot at starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young is poised to compete for a starting job, Joe Schiller of the Ravens' official website reports.

The 2018 fourth-round pick spent his rookie season splitting time with Patrick Onwausor at inside linebacker next to C.J. Mosley, who recently signed a five-year, $85 million contract with the Jets. There's now room for both Onwausor and Young to handle three-down roles, though it will depend on Baltimore's other moves this offseason. Young flashed impressive IDP potential in 2018, with 51 tackles (40 solo), 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery across 369 snaps on defense and 178 on special teams.

Ravens' Kenny Young: Suiting up Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 1 tilt against the Bills.

Young was trending in the right direction after full practice participation Thursday and Friday. The 2018 fourth-round pick will open his rookie season backing up Patrick Onwuasor at one of the Ravens' inside linebacker spots.

Ravens' Kenny Young: Questionable vs. Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (knee) is questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Bills.

Young injured his left knee in the Ravens' preseason finale, but he was a full participant in practice both Thursday and Friday. With that, Young appears to be on track to be active for Sunday's contest.

Ravens' Kenny Young: Participates in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (knee) participated in Thursday's practice.

Young injured his left knee in the team's preseason finale against the Redskins, but he appears to be trending towards a full recovery. The fourth-rounder out of UCLA had a strong preseason and will continue to battle for the starting weak-side linebacker role as the regular season progresses.

Ravens' Kenny Young: Injures knee in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was seen with his left knee wrapped after Thursday's preseason game against the Redskins, Garrett Downing of the Ravens' official site reports.

Young, who's competing with Patrick Onwuasor for the starting weak-side linebacker role, will reportedly undergo an MRI later Friday to determine the extent of his injury.

Ravens' Kenny Young: Challenging for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young is impressing the coaching staff during his battle with Patrick Onwuasor for the starting inside linebacker job alongside C.J. Mosley, Ryan Mink of the team's official website reports.

The fourth-rounder out of UCLA is making a strong first impression in camp and is one of the surprises of Baltimore's rookie class. "That probably speaks to how Kenny is playing that it's even mentioned as a fight right now. It'll be a fun battle to watch unfold," coach John Harbaugh said regarding Young's surprising ascension in pushing a veteran like Onwuasor. Last season, Onwuasor took over the spot vacated by Zach Orr and responded with 90 total tackles. Young still has a ways to go in edging out Onwuasor, but like Harbaugh said, turning that inside linebacker spot into a competition is an accomplishment in and of itself.
