Samuel Sloman: Cut by Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams waived Sloman on Tuesday.

Sloman has struggled this season, and the Rams brought in Kai Forbath last week to compete with the rookie kicker. They opted to give Sloman one more chance Monday against the Bears, but he made just one of two field-goal attempts, leading to the team cutting him loose Tuesday. Forbath will take over as the team's starting kicker moving forward, while Sloman could seek out a practice squad role.

Rams' Samuel Sloman: Another kick blocked in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sloman connected on one of his two field-goal attempts and all three extra-point kicks during Monday's 24-10 win over the Bears. He had a 48-yard field-goal attempt blocked in the fourth quarter.

The rookie's low-kick trajectory has been a consistent issue, and he's only connected on eight of 11 field-goal attempts while also missing three extra-point kicks through seven games. The Rams signed veteran kicker Kai Forbath on Tuesday, and it's likely he'll replace the struggling Sloman. Forbath hadn't passed the required COVID-19 protocols in time to play Monday.

Rams' Samuel Sloman: Set to start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sloman will start Monday against the Bears, Lindsey Thiry of reports.

There was some thought Kai Forbath, who signed with the Rams earlier in the week, would be in line to start, but the kicker hasn't passed COVID-19 protocols, thus setting the stage for another game with Sloman as the main option. After missing his third extra point of the season last week, the writing appears to be on the wall for Sloman's tenure as the starter, but he'll get at least one more opportunity to showcase his skills in Monday's prime-time matchup.

Rams' Samuel Sloman: Competition arrives in L.A.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams signed Kai Forbath to the active roster Tuesday, indicating that Sloman will have to compete to retain his starting job, Stu Jackson of the team's official site reports.

Sloman missed his third extra point of the season in this past Sunday's loss to the 49ers, and he's connected on seven of nine field goals (87 percent). The Rams opted to bring in competition as a result, as Forbath is a dependable veteran who connected on all 10 of his field-goal tries with the Cowboys in 2019, including eight attempts from beyond 40 yards. This competition leans in Forbath's favor, although it appears coach Sean McVay will afford the two kickers three days of practice to battle it out.

Rams' Samuel Sloman: Connects from 28 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sloman hit a 28-yard field goal and converted three of his four extra-point attempts during Sunday's 30-10 win over Washington.

Another week, another missed kick for Sloman. This was his second missed extra point, and he's now 6-for-8 in field-goal attempts for the campaign. The rookie also hasn't been given a lot of opportunities, so he remains a risky fantasy option in most settings.

Rams' Samuel Sloman: Connects from 32 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sloman hit a 32-yard field goal and converted both his extra-point kicks during Sunday's 17-9 win over the Giants.

The rookie has only connected on a single field goal in each of the past three games. As a result, there aren't many fantasy settings where he's a viable option. Without an uptick in opportunities and efficiency (5-for-7 for the year), Sloman should probably remain on the waiver wire.

Rams' Sam Sloman: Misses another field goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sloman kicked a 30-yard field goal and converted three extra-point kicks during Sunday's 35-32 loss to Buffalo. He also missed a 53-yard field goal in the first quarter.

The rookie kicker has now missed a kick in three consecutive games. Los Angeles invested a seventh-round pick in Sloman in the 2020 NFL Draft, so his leash is probably a little longer than most freshman kickers, but he's still definitely off to an underwhelming start as a pro. As it stands, Sloman is probably best viewed as a fringe fantasy option in most settings.

Rams' Sam Sloman: Hits lone field-goal attempt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sloman connected on his only field-goal attempt from 30 yards and hit four of his five extra-point kicks during Sunday's 37-19 win over Philadelphia.

While it was another respectable fantasy showing from the rookie, it is concerning that Sloman has had a kick blocked in consecutive games. It wasn't consequential Sunday with Los Angeles already up 37-19 late in the fourth quarter, but Sloman's kick trajectory is low and clearly a shortcoming through his first two games as a pro.

Rams' Sam Sloman: Bounces back from early miss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sloman rebounded from a 29-yard missed field-goal attempt at the end of the first quarter to connect on consecutive kicks from 35 and 31 yards during Sunday's 20-17 win over Dallas. He also converted both his extra-point kicks.

The 2020 seventh-round selection nailed the left upright to miss his first career field-goal attempt, but Sloman impressively bounced back to finish with a respectable fantasy showing. He should have plenty of opportunities with Los Angeles boasting a deep and balanced offensive attack, and he's worth considering in most settings.

Rams' Sam Sloman: Earns starting gig
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sloman officially won the Rams' kicking job after the team waived Lirim Hajrullahu and Austin MacGinnis on Friday, Stu Jackson of the team's official site reports.

In the post-Greg Zuerlein world, Sloman will get the first shot to replace one of the strongest legs in recent memory. In four years at Miami (OH), the 2020 seventh-round pick connected on 79 percent of his field-goal attempts. That said, he showed accuracy on lengthy kicks as a senior, nailing 11 of 14 from 40-plus yards last fall.

Rams' Sam Sloman: Favored to land kicking job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams are expected to go with Sloman as their kicker heading into Week 1, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The seventh-rounder had been competing with Lirim Hajrullahu and Austin MacGinnis, but it now looks like he'll get a shot at the team's kicking job unless the Rams bring in another option following the league-wide roster churn that's about to take place.

Rams' Sam Sloman: Competing in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sloman made three of six field-goal attempts during Wednesday's practice, Rams play-by-play announcer J.B. Long reports.

Sloman, who was drafted in the seventh round last year, is yet to kick in the regular season but finds himself entrenched in a position battle with Austin MacGinnis and Lirim Hajrullahu to earn the Rams' job. Although he missed half his kicks Wednesday, Sloman at least converted both of his simulated game-winning attempts. With a starting gig up for grabs, Los Angeles' competition should be worth monitoring over the course of training camp.
