Talib exited Sunday's contest in the third quarter. It remains to be seen whether Talib's injury will threaten his Week 4 status, but if the veteran were to miss any time, Nickell Robey-Coleman would step in as the Rams' starting right cornerback.
This was a disappointing follow-up to Littleton's 13-tackle showing in Week 1. However, it probably should be chalked up to Arizona laying an egg offensively more than anything. With Mark Barron (ankle) sidelined, Littleton called the plays for the Los Angeles defense again Sunday, and he sets up to have a rebound showing in Week 3 against the Chargers -- especially if Barron is unable to suit up or is limited.
Saffold had been dealing with an ankle injury last month, but it appears that it's a ribs injury that is hindering his availability now. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but more information regarding his availability moving forward should be available soon.
It looked like Cooks scored a touchdown in the first quarter, but he was later ruled down inside the one-yard line after a replay review. Cooks has picked up a new offense quickly, catching 19 of 25 targets for 336 yards through three games. Although the presence of Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, who both scored a touchdown Sunday, slightly cap his upside, there seems like there is enough to go around for all three receivers to be productive. In any case, Cooks will look to stay on a roll in Thursday's game against Minnesota.
Kupp might be the third option in the passing game behind Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods, but he remains one of Jared Goff's most trusted targets, especially in the red zone (six looks inside the 20 prior to Sunday). In Week 4, Kupp will face the Vikings on Thursday Night Football.
Thomas underwent a groin procedure on Sep. 14 that will keep him out for the foreseeable future. Josh Reynolds and JoJo Natson figure to be the beneficiaries of Thomas' absence.
Goff started off hot, completing 15 passes for nearly 200 yards in a little over a quarter of action. He did make a mistake in the second quarter, however, tossing an interception in the end zone. Goff's touchdown rate is on pace from last season, but his passing yardage is way up so far, averaging over 300 yards per game. In an elite offense with a plethora of playmakers, Goff should continue to put up good numbers, and he'll look to do so Thursday against the Vikings.
Hekker nailed a 20-yard field goal as well as a PAT to give him an unexpected four points. Considering how bad kickers were across the league Sunday, the fact Hekker could step in with zero career kicking attempts and convert both his opportunities proved rather admirable. Nonetheless, the Rams acted on their newfound situation this week, signing Sam Ficken to the roster. That'll leave Hekker to focus solely on punting again, even though he now boasts a perfect kicking record.
Shields didn't see a ton of action Sunday but made the most of his opportunities, recording his first interception since 2015. The veteran cornerback got snaps with the game out of hand after not receiving a single defensive rep in Week 1. However, after the impressive interception which he returned 22 yards, Shields could be inclined to see some more regular playing time in the future.
He was at least seen walking under his own power though the boot suggests he will be forced to miss some time. With Aqib Talib (ankle) also injured, the Rams are suddenly depleted at cornerback. Troy Hill will likely replace the 25-year-old if he is out for the matchup with the Vikings in Week 4.
Rams head coach Sean McVay confirmed Wednesday that he'll rest regular starter Jared Goff for the regular-season finale, but it will be tough for Mannion to find success while running back Todd Gurley, left tackle Andrew Whitworth and center John Sullivan are also held out of the lineup. Further adding to the challenge, McVay probably won't allow Robert Woods, Sammy Watkins and Cooper Kupp (knee) to handle full workloads, assuming they play at all. While it's still a nice audition for the future, Mannion can't be counted on for much useful production this week.
Allen was waived by Los Angeles earlier this week, and will serve as a deep depth option on the team's practice squad. The former sixth-round pick's will work to impress during his time on the practice squad, and hope that the Rams elect to carry three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster in the future.
The third-year tight end failed to secure his other target, so while it was great to see Higbee find the end zone Week 2, Sunday's touchdown stands as his only reception through the first two games of the season. He was still on the field for 64 offensive snaps compared to Gerald Everett's eight, so for the time being, Higbee's position atop the depth chart appears secure. Still, neither Los Angeles tight end profiles as a reliable fantasy option at this stage of the game.
Thompson was waived earlier this week with an injury designation, but it still isn't certain what the linebacker is dealing with. In any case, the Ole Miss product will spend the remainder of the 2018 season on IR unless he and the Rams agree to an injury settlement.
Peterson sustained the unspecified injury during Thursday's preseason opener against the Ravens. Barring an injury settlement, he's likely stuck on IR through the end of the league year.
Natson's loss is a critical blow to the Rams' special teams as he is both their kick and punt returner. Cooper Kupp will likely handle punts in his absence, with Mike Thomas handling kickoffs.
The rookie seventh-round pick out of TCU couldn't shake his mystery injury. Howard will be free to sign with another team once he's healthy.
Sometimes real-world dominance doesn't translate to fantasy greatness, so while Donald's slow start to the campaign is discouraging, it's difficult to envision him posting such pedestrian numbers over the long haul. Patience is all but guaranteed to be a virtue with the three-time All Pro defensive lineman.
Mundt spent the 2017 season on the Rams' practice squad, except for a brief stint on the 53-man roster in November. The 2017 undrafted rookie was returning from a knee injury as the season began, but should be able to take advantage of the Rams' offseason training program in 2018.
Brown's two-game suspension for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse has run its course, and the 2015 third-rounder has officially rejoined the team. Austin Blythe has impressed through the first two games of the season, so Brown may have to compete for his former starting role.
Laguda initially reverted to injured reserve but the two sides have since reached an agreement to allow him to pursue other opportunities when healthy.
Christian ended the 2017 season on IR due to a shoulder injury. He'd primarily served as a special teams player prior to being sidelined, seeing the field on defense for just 47 snaps in 12 games. His solid play at Friday's practice is a positive sign for the young safety, who's been getting some extra reps while starter Lamarcus Joyner (Achilles) has been sidelined the past few days. Look for him to increase his role on defense if he keeps up the impactful play.
Kelly has not appeared on the injury report during the regular season, but he nonetheless will miss his second consecutive game. While the 2018 sixth-round pick remains sidelined, Malcolm Brown will once again serve as the primary backup to Todd Gurley.
After missing the majority of the preseason with a shoulder injury and playing just five offensive snaps Week 1, it was encouraging to see Everett haul in a lengthy reception Sunday. He's still firmly behind Tyler Higbee on the depth chart, as Everett played just eight offensive snaps compared to Higbee's 64. However, it wouldn't be shocking if the second-year tight end out of South Alabama became more involved in the passing attack as the season progresses. Everett was handpicked by the current regime in the second round of the 2017 draft, and he displayed his athleticism with 15.3 yards per reception as a rookie in 2017. Keep tabs on Everett in deep setups.
Hill should provide added depth for a new-look Rams secondary this season led by cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib. In 2017, Hill appeared in 12 games and earned a start in four of those contests. A strong showing in the preseason could help Hill's stock moving forward.
Hatfield had been listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles, but will now hope to latch on with another team or a practice squad, assuming his hip injury doesn't prove to be a significant issue. The Rams added linebacker Cameron Lynch to the 53-man roster in a corresponding move with Alec Ogletree (elbow) and Connor Barwin (forearm) both questionable for Sunday.
The sophomore finished the 2017 season strong with 63 tackles (46 solo) over the final 10 games, and he's picked up right where he left off this year. Johnson is now up to 16 tackles (12 solo), three defensed passes and an interception through two games, and he's also played as many snaps as any Los Angeles defender. It helps that he's lining up in a loaded Rams secondary, which only strengthens his fantasy floor. Johnson profiles as a serviceable weekly option in IDP settings moving forward.
Westbrooks was arrested in September, just two weeks after signing a one-year, $1.75 million extension with the Rams. He's been sentenced to one day in jail, getting credit for time served, along with three years of probation. The 27-year-old had 23 tackles and four sacks last season, making nine starts in 16 games. Westbrooks likely will serve as a backup this upcoming season, as the Rams plan to start Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh and Michael Brockers on the defensive line. Westbrooks may be suspended by the NFL now that his legal case has reached a conclusion.
The 2016 seventh-round pick has come a long way since his Iowa days and seems to be impressing those around Los Angeles. Blythe started just one game for the Rams in 2017 despite appearing in all 16 contests.
After spending most of his career as a three-technique defensive tackle in 4-3 schemes, Suh is joining a 3-4 unit that already features Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers as the ends. It may take some time for Suh to get comfortable at nose tackle, but his combination of athleticism and tenacity ultimately should translate at any position along the interior line. None of this will be an issue when the Rams are in their nickel defense -- which should be well over half the time -- as Brockers can simply come off the field. Suh is signing a one-year, $14 million contract with Los Angeles, seemingly passing up larger offers for the chance to play on a stacked team. He'll still have plenty of chances to rush the quarterback, and the Giants' Damon Harrison has proven it's not impossible to pile up tackles from the nose spot.
Zuerlein injured his groin during pregame warmups ahead of Sunday's victory over the Cardinals, forcing punter Johnny Hekker into an emergency placekicking role. Hekker hit his only try from 20 yards out, but he won't be tasked with kicking responsibilities any longer after the Rams signed Sam Ficken on Monday. Zuerlein, who was a Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro selection last season, will avoid injured reserve for the time being and will presumably resume his regular kicking duties once his groin has fully healed.
Fox's third season is thus presumably over with the news of his severe knee injury Thursday. He saw an increased role in 2017, racking up 19 total tackles and 2.5 sacks while appearing in all 16 games. The Rams are loaded on the defensive line, but Fox's absence could be felt on special teams.
Cooper, the Rams' standout return specialist, is dealing with an ankle injury that will require a multi-week absence. The Rams re-signed Jojo Natson on Wednesday to help out in the return game.
Barron will remain sidelined with an ankle injury that hasn't allowed him to log a single snap -- or even be active -- this season. In his place, Ramik Wilson will earn another spot start at inside linebacker.
Boehm hasn't developed as expected but is still eligible for the practice squad if he clears waivers.
The first-year Ram played primarily in nickel sets while manning the slot this season, and it's a role he's beginning to be pigeonholed into. Robey-Coleman is set to become an unrestricted free agent during the offseason along with fellow defensive backs Trumaine Johnson and Lamarcus Joyner, so Los Angeles has some question marks in the secondary to address. If Robey-Coleman were to open 2018 as a cornerback (with the Rams or another team), it could provide a notable boost to his fantasy value. However, it's more likely that he continues serving as a nickelback.
Hager presumably sustained the injury in last week's loss to the Vikings. He saw his workload increase each day this week, so he looks to be trending in the right direction, but no formal decision is expected to be made until Sunday.
Longacre suffered a biceps injury early in camp after undergoing back surgery in the offseason, but his performance Saturday indicates that he is feeling healthier as the regular season approaches. Longacre is expected to start for the Rams at weakside linebacker.
Reynolds emerged from preseason Week 1 with an ankle injury that kept him out the rest of exhibition season. Although he's returned to full health, he's stuck as the No. 4 wide receiver in an offense with three more than steady options in Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. Like last year, Reynolds likely will need an absence from one of the trio to make an impact in the box score.
Sickels suited up for just one contest as an undrafted rookie with the Rams in 2017, but he'll look to latch on with another squad with several weeks of training camp left on the schedule.
Brockers sprained his right knee in the Rams' wild-card loss to the Falcons this past January. His availability for the start of Monday's voluntary workouts is a sign that he's close to full strength, but it's possible the defensive lineman is still operating under some sort of physical limitations.
Havenstein suffered what appeared to be a minor ankle injury prior to the Rams' third preseason game, but he's on track to play in the regular-season opener against Oakland. With John Sullivan (arm) cleared to play as well, Los Angeles will have their offensive line at full strength entering the 2018 season.
Brown received more opportunities in the rushing game Week 2 because Todd Gurley was nursing cramps, but the No. 2 back failed to take advantage by averaging just 3.8 yards per attempt on the ground. Gurley scored three times before exiting and was reported to be fine following the game, so his workhorse role doesn't appear to be in jeopardy heading into a Week 3 matchup against the Chargers. Brown's fantasy value remains limited, as he checks out as a wait-and-see stash in deep settings and/or a Gurley handcuff.
Countess entered the concussion protocol earlier in the week but appears set to suit up for Saturday's playoff game. The second-year safety will back up John Johnson in the Rams' secondary.
Joyner was dealing with a sore Achilles early in camp that forced him to miss a few practices, but he appears healthy and effective heading into the home stretch of the preseason. Joyner is currently slated as the Rams' starting free safety.
Woods had a great first half, catching all seven of his targets for 79 yards and a touchdown, while also rushing three times for 13 yards. He added another touchdown in the third quarter. After seeing nine targets in each of the first two games, Woods was featured even more Sunday, leading the Rams in all receiving categories. The sixth-year wideout hadn't scored in either of the first two games, but given his overall usage and the potency of the Rams' offense, it's not surprising that he blew up Sunday. He'll have a quick turnaround in Week 4, as he'll face the Vikings on Thursday.
Sullivan suffered an arm injury back in late July, but he was never in any real danger of missing Week 1. The starting center for the Rams looks good to go ahead of Monday's season opener in Oakland.
Okoronkwo will now have to sit out the first six games of the season, signalling that he is still rehabbing from his foot surgery in May. When he returns, Okoronkwo will back up Matt Longacre at outside linebacker.
Easley serves mostly a special teams role for the Rams, so his injury is unlikely to impact the team's defense during Sunday's contest. If Easley is unable to return, John Franklin-Myers and Ethan Westbrooks could be in line to receive increased rotational defensive snaps.
It isn't clear what Thompson is dealing with, but the receivers is nonetheless stuck on IR through the end of the league year unless he agrees to an injury settlement.
Davis was limited in practice on Thursday with a hamstring injury before returning to full participation on Friday and Saturday. He's listed as the fourth-string running back on the depth chart, so playing time may be hard to come by for the 22-year-old this season.
Gurley dealt with some cramping in last week's win over Arizona, but was obviously more than fine Sunday, although he had just a long run of 14 yards. He should continue to see 20+ touches every week as one of the most reliable and productive fantasy running backs in the league. Gurley will face Minnesota on Thursday.
Ficken will fill in while regular starter Greg Zuerlein tends to a groin injury. The 25-year-old filled in for Zuerlein after the latter suffered a season-ending back injury late last season, hitting four of five attempts in three games. With Zuerlein expected to be out a few weeks, Ficken finds himself in an ideal scenario as the kicker for one of the most potent offenses in the NFL.
