Rams' Jake Funk: Little action in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funk logged three snaps on offense during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Colts.

Funk failed to see any rushing attempts or targets in the contest. The rookie running back has not been a part of the Rams' offensive game plan through two weeks, as he is seeing most of his playing time on special teams. Instead, Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel have been carrying the load in the backfield. Henderson suffered a rib injury in Week 2, but the Rams are optimistic about his ability to practice this week. Although Michel would be the biggest beneficiary if Henderson has to miss time, it is plausible Funk would take on a role on offense as well.

Rams' Jake Funk: No offensive snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funk logged 11 snaps on special teams during Sunday's 34-14 win over the Bears.

Funk failed to see any snaps on offense, as fellow running backs Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel carried the load. Henderson totaled 16 carries while Michel logged just one carry. As the No. 3 running back on the team, Funk will likely have difficulty finding consistent opportunities on offense. It's hard to imagine a path to fantasy relevance for the 5-foot-10, 203-pound rookie if both Henderson and Michel can stay healthy. The Rams are set to take on the Colts in Week 2.

Rams' Jake Funk: Drops on depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funk has more competition for snaps following the Rams' trade for fellow running back Sony Michel on Wednesday, Kevin Modesti of The Orange County Register reports.

While the majority of rookie seventh-round picks have been desperately clawing for third-string spots, Funk has spent his summer competing with Xavier Jones for No. 2 standing on the Los Angeles depth chart, behind presumed starter Darrell Henderson after Cam Akers suffered an Achilles tear in July. The addition of Michel makes things a bit more crowded, but Funk still is in good shape relative to other late-round picks, with the running-back position arguably the biggest question mark for an otherwise-stellar team. Granted, Funk could end up on the practice squad if the Rams only keep three backs.

Rams' Jake Funk: Inefficient in preseason loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funk rushed five times for 12 yards and brought in his only target for minus-5 yards in the Rams' 13-6 preseason loss to the Chargers on Saturday night.

The rookie recently received praise from head coach Sean McVay for his work in training camp thus far, but he was unable to validate the accolades much Saturday with an inefficient performance. Funk should still have an inside track to a roster spot with Cam Akers' Achilles injury opening up a clearer path to such, and he'll look to acquit himself more impressively against the Raiders in next Saturday night's preseason clash.

Rams' Jake Funk: Busy preseason ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funk and Xavier Jones should be busy this preseason, as the Rams likely will play it safe with projected starter Darrell Henderson, Ryan Kartje of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Funk is a sixth-round rookie who took only 135 carries throughout his college career, while Jones is a second-year pro who strictly played special teams after catching on with the Rams as an undrafted rookie last year. The two are listed as co-No. 2s on the team's initial preseason depth chart, ahead of scatbacks Raymond Calais (5-8, 188) and Otis Anderson (5-11, 174). Most reports put Jones in the lead for the second RB spot, but Funk should have plenty of chances to make his case this preseason.

Rams' Jake Funk: Climbs depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funk will move up the depth chart after teammate Cam Akers suffered a torn Achilles, but the rookie still looks to be behind Darrell Henderson and Xavier Jones in the Rams backfield, Kevin Modesti of The Orange County Register reports.

This is the type of situation where a little-known player could make an impact, but as a rookie seventh-round pick, Funk will need to earn a roster spot first and foremost. He was a backup throughout most of his college career at Maryland, before taking 60 carries for 516 yards and three touchdowns in five games his senior season. Funk then boosted his draft stock with a sub-4.5-second 40-yard dash at his pro day, ultimately landing in Los Angeles on draft day with the 233rd overall pick. In addition to Henderson, Jones and Funk, the Rams have scatbacks Raymond Calais and Otis Anderson on their roster. The team could still add veteran help, but most reports suggest they'll avoid a big-name addition.
