Case Keenum completed 14-of-26 passes for 190 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Rams' 37-32, Week 3 win over the Bucs.
Keenum finally found the end zone, though he did it for both teams. His interception was a horrifying pass housed for an easy pick six by the Bucs' Kwon Alexander. Keenum had a mix up with Tavon Austin. Keenum's first score was a perfectly delivered strike to a wide-open Brian Quick. The second, a short pass to Austin, who abused S Chris Conte in 1-on-1 coverage. Keenum saved his job for another week, but Jared Goff is getting closer. Keenum will be a bottom-five QB2 against the Cardinals in Week 4. Sep 25 - 8:38 PM

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Case Keenum will remain the starter this week.

"We need more production out of our offense, and all things point to the quarterback position," Fisher said. "But I’m expecting Case to continue to get better in this offense and we’re going to win games and score points." Considering the Rams have managed just nine points in two games and are averaging a league-worst four yards per play, Fisher has every reason to be confident in Keenum.

Case Keenum completed 18-of-30 passes for 239 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions in the Rams' 9-3, Week 2 win over the Seahawks.

Greg Zuerlein's three field goals and the Rams' defense was the difference. Keenum not turning the ball over was also big in the Rams' first home game in Los Angeles in 22 seasons. The Seahawks stacked the box all day to stop Todd Gurley (19-51 rushing line) and let Keenum have single-coverage, which he was able to beat a few times. Kenny Britt saw a team-high 10 targets to post a 6-94 line. Keenum and the 1-1 Rams travel to Tampa Bay in Week 3.

Coach Jeff Fisher indicated Case Keenum remains the Rams' starting quarterback.

Fisher said following Monday night's embarrassing Week 1 shutout loss to the 49ers that he considered yanking Keenum mid-game in favor of Sean Mannion. Ultimately, he stuck with him and now wants "to see Keenum bounce back." It's highly unlikely to happen this week at home against the Seahawks. Whatever the Rams' team total is, we'd suggest hammering the under on it.

Coach Jeff Fisher admitted he considered benching Case Keenum for Sean Mannion at one point during the Rams' 28-0, Week 1 loss to the 49ers.

Keenum may not even make it to Week 2 as the starter after his awful Monday night performance when he completed just 17-of-35 passes for 130 yards and two interceptions. He threw bad balls all night, missing high, low, and anywhere else a quarterback can miss his target. Mannion or No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff could get the Week 2 start against the Seahawks at home.

Case Keenum completed just 17-of-35 passes for 130 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Rams' Week 1, shutout loss to the 49ers.

No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff somehow lost the quarterback battle to this guy this summer. Keenum genuinely looked out of place on an NFL field. His first interception was tipped at the line of scrimmage by DE Quinton Dial and landed in ILB NaVorro Bowman's lap, while his second pick was a truly awful pass way behind Lance Kendricks on a simple intermediate route. It wouldn't be a total surprise to see Sean Mannion get the start Week 2 at home against Seattle.
Sep 13 - 1:43 AM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos "kept tabs" on Rams QB Case Keenum this summer, and that the sides had trade talks.

It's highly unsurprising, as Keenum broke into the league under coach Gary Kubiak, making eight starts in 2013. Talks presumably broke down once the Rams realized No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff wasn't going to be anywhere near ready for Week 1. Keenum isn't many things, but he's definitely a better option than Trevor Siemian.
Sep 8 - 6:16 PM

Case Keenum completed 8-of-12 passes for 77 yards and rushed once for four yards in the Rams' third preseason game.

Still holding off No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff, Keenum has completed 18-of-24 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown through three preseason games. Jeff Fisher would do cartwheels if Keenum could give the Rams stat lines like that every week. Keenum's primary 2016 task will be handing off to Todd Gurley.
Aug 27 - 10:57 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the Rams "are planning" to start Case Keenum Week 1.

Keenum started the first two preseason games and has looked reasonably competent. No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff, on the other hand, has struggled early in his NFL career. Keenum has already proven he is nothing more than a backup, but he can serve as the placeholder until the Rams are confident Goff is ready. It would not be surprising if the switch came early in the season.
Aug 22 - 9:54 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there is a "real chance" the Rams start Case Keenum over Jared Goff in Week 1.

Rapoport added, "That's the plan, as of now." This echoes a report last week from ESPN's Ed Werder, who said there is a "very strong possibility" Keenum opens the year as the starter. The Rams have little to gain by starting a backup-caliber player like Keenum over the No. 1 overall pick, but it seems like a real possibility at this point.
Aug 9 - 11:30 AM

According to ESPN's Ed Werder, there is a "very strong possibility" the Rams start Case Keenum over Jared Goff in Week 1.

Werder said this in response to an Adam Schefter report that Keenum will start the Rams' first preseason game. Goff will likely start the second, and whomever outplays the other figures to start the regular season dress rehearsal in the third week of exhibition games. NFL Network's Steve Wyche reported in June that Keenum might start in Week 1. We weren't buying it then, but Werder's words suggest we should have taken Wyche's story more seriously. Per Werder, the Rams are "curious" to see how Goff performs in preseason games.
Aug 6 - 8:44 AM

NFL Network's Steve Wyche says "don't be shocked" if Case Keenum is the Rams' Week 1 starter.

While Keenum is presently listed atop the Rams' quarterback depth chart, it would be a major shock if he beats out Jared Goff. Wyche says Goff is "nowhere near being ready to start Week 1" and is "swimming in it." Keenum was ineffective in a game-manager role last year, and there's still plenty of time for Goff to win the starting job. This could just be a case of the Rams attempting to lower expectations for the No. 1 overall pick in year one.

Case Keenum will enter training camp as the Rams' starting quarterback.

The Rams traded three museums worth of valuables for the right to select Jared Goff at No. 1 overall, but ever the lover of formality and convention, coach Jeff Fisher will make Goff jump through artificial hoops on his way toward Week 1 starting status. It would be stunning if Goff isn't under center against the 49ers.
Jun 16 - 6:44 PM

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Rams "would also listen" to trade offers for Case Keenum, in addition to Nick Foles.

The Rams are going to move one of these quarterbacks after selecting Cal QB Jared Goff at No. 1 overall on Thursday night. They'd definitely prefer to keep Keenum as the veteran clipboard-holder, but he's also the one other teams would probably rather acquire. Foles was atrocious last season and has a bad contract. The Rams would likely take a late-rounder for either player.
Apr 29 - 3:07 PM

Rams re-signed QB Case Keenum to a one-year, $3.635 million contract.

Keenum was laughably tendered at the first-round level as the Rams pretended he would be their 2016 starter, but that's out the window now after their daring trade up to No. 1 overall. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport has speculated Keenum could be a trade candidate, but it's unlikely at that salary. Keenum will caddie for whichever signal caller the Rams make the first pick of the draft, perhaps starting the first few games of the season.
