Case Keenum completed 24-of-38 passes for 239 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Vikings' Week 6 win over the Packers.
He added 15 rushing yards. Keenum didn't do anything special and turned the ball over for the first time this season, but he didn't have to do much with Green Bay scoring just 10 points after losing Aaron Rodgers to a broken collarbone early in the first quarter. Keenum's touchdown went to Jerick McKinnon on a screen pass. With Stefon Diggs (groin) out, Keenum targeted Adam Thielen 13 times, hooking up nine times for 97 yards. Keenum will likely be under center again next week against the Ravens in Minnesota. Oct 15 - 4:43 PM

Case Keenum completed 17-of-21 passes for 140 yards and one touchdown in the Vikings' Week 5 win over the Bears on Monday night.

Sam Bradford (knee) got the start and played deep into the second quarter, but never looked right and was yanked on the final drive of the first half. Keenum entered and completed 81% of his passes and added a 22-yard scramble. It's clear that Keenum will get another start next week at home against the Packers in a potential shootout. He's worth a look in two-QB leagues.
Oct 10 - 12:05 AM

Case Keenum completed just 16-of-30 passes for 209 yards in the Vikings' Week 4 loss to the Lions.

He didn't throw a touchdown or pick in this defensive struggle. Minnesota managed just seven points total, and the offense appeared to be broken after Dalvin Cook suffered what is believed to be a torn left ACL early in the third quarter. After his monster Week 3 against the Bucs, Keenum predictably came back to this planet. Sam Bradford (knee) still seems at least a week away. The Vikings go on the road to face the Bears next Monday night.
Oct 1 - 5:08 PM

Case Keenum completed 25-of-33 passes for 369 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings' Week 3 win over the Bucs.

He added six scrambles for 18 yards. In a battle between Jameis Winston and Keenum, Keenum severely outplayed the Bucs' third-year quarterback in a shockingly dominant effort. Keenum has always had a little gunslinger in him, and he played Sunday's game without fear, feeding Stefon Diggs relentlessly for big gains. Assuming Sam Bradford (knee) misses another game, Keenum has earned two-quarterback-league starter status for Week 4 against the Lions.

Case Keenum will be the Vikings' Week 3 starter against Tampa Bay.

Keenum struggled mightily in last week's start against Pittsburgh, finishing as the QB31 in fantasy. He was outscored by Browns in-game reliever Kevin Hogan, who played fewer than 20 snaps. Keenum also didn't target any member of the Vikings' pass-catcher corps more than six times. The Bucs' D/ST is in play.
Sep 22 - 2:01 PM

Case Keenum completed 20-of-37 passes for 167 yards in the Vikings' Week 2 loss to the Steelers.

Keenum didn't turn the ball over, but that's a pitiful 4.5 YPA in his spot start in place of an injured Sam Bradford. Keenum couldn't move the offense, and in one red-zone possession he was under intense pressure on all three downs before settling for a field goal. Keenum's insertion really bogged down the other Minnesota skill players, while the Pittsburgh defense is much better than the Swiss-cheese one the Saints trotted out against the Vikings in Week 1. Bradford is expected back next week at home against the Bucs.
Sep 17 - 4:28 PM

The Vikings will start Case Keenum at quarterback in Week 2 at Pittsburgh.

The hope seems to be that Sam Bradford (knee) will return in a week or two. Keenum starting significantly downgrades all members of the Vikings' offense, from Stefon Diggs to Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen, and Dalvin Cook.
Sep 17 - 11:24 AM

Vikings signed QB Case Keenum, formerly of the Rams, to a one-year, $2 million contract.

The former Houston Cougar made nine starts last year before falling behind Jared Goff on the Rams' quarterback depth chart. He'll compete with Taylor Heinicke for No. 3 duties behind Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater, who is still recovering from last year's catastrophic knee injury.
Mar 31 - 4:40 PM

Rams declared QB Case Keenum, S Maurice Alexander, CB Lamarcus Joyner, DE Matt Longacre, OT Greg Robinson, WR Mike Thomas and OL Cody Wichmann inactive for Week 16 against the 49ers.

Keenum and Robinson are both healthy scratches. Sean Mannion will back up Jared Goff at quarterback with Rodger Saffold replacing Robinson at left tackle. Bradley Marquez (knee) is active.

Case Keenum has been benched.

A gunslinger stuck in Kellen Moore's body, Keenum did the best he could with limited talent around him on offense, but the wheels predictably fell off after a decent start. Like a poor man's Brian Hoyer, Keenum has never had success beyond an initial 2-3 games. The problem for the Rams is that Jared Goff may be even less ready to lead them to victory, but it was time for the forever 7-9 Fightin' Fishers to stop messing around. They made their Goff bed. It's time to lay in it.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the team is sticking with Case Keenum for Week 11 against the Dolphins.

Fisher actually said Jared Goff remains the No. 2 quarterback, but the implication is the same. Considering the Rams have failed to score a touchdown three times this season and have been held to 10 points or fewer in their last three games, it is unclear how much worse Keenum will need to play for Goff to get his chance. We might find out this week against Miami.

Case Keenum completed 17-of-30 passes for 165 yards and rushed five times for 11 yards in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Jets.

109 of Keenum's yards went to Kenny Britt, while no other Rams pass catcher reached 20 yards. Keenum has been a liability this season, but the Rams insist No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff isn't ready to take over. Keenum will be a low-end two-quarterback-league play when Los Angeles hosts Miami in Week 11.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 04:17:00 PM

Coach Jeff Fisher confirmed on Monday that Case Keenum will start Week 10 against the Jets.

As expected. Fisher sang the same tune after Sunday's home loss to the Panthers when Keenum fired off 46 passes and the offense only mustered 10 points. The Rams will now travel cross-country for a 1 PM ET kickoff. Though it's a favorable matchup for Keenum, he's not a recommended streamer after failing miserably in a plus spot vs. Carolina. Rookie Jared Goff isn't ready.

ESPN Rams reporter Alden Gonzalez said coach Jeff Fisher "sounded like a man who is not ready to make a change at quarterback" after Los Angeles' Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

"I would submit that Case [Keenum] was not the reason we lost this game today," Fisher said. "We just didn't make plays in all three phases. We'll circle the wagons with the coaches and look at the tape, but I'm pleased with the way Case has fought." Fisher is singing a bit of a different tune than he has in weeks past regarding Keenum, leaving the door cracked for a possible switch to No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning that Fisher wasn't prepared to do so until the Rams were "eliminated from playoff contention." At 3-5 following four-straight losses, the Rams will be out of the playoff picture soon enough. With Keenum at quarterback, they're arguably the worst team in the league and have shown no signs of progress in the 4.5 years Fisher has been on the job.

Case Keenum completed 27-of-46 throws for 296 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Rams' 13-10, Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

Dinking, dunking and missing throws all afternoon, Keenum was serenaded by "we want Goff!" chants from the Coliseum faithful. Some attendees went as far as to clamor for Tim Tebow. Keenum was, as usual, victimized by drops, but continued to make his own bad luck. His interception was thrown directly to Thomas Davis. His touchdown was tossed in the dying moments of the game, and came on a fourth down where any coach with a brain would have been kicking a field goal. The Rams were lucky to even still have the ball, as Keenum inexplicably checked down on a previous fourth down. The Rams have insisted No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff isn't even close to ready, so Keenum should make another start against the Jets in Week 10.
