Coach Sean McVay said Robert Woods (shoulder) will miss at least a "couple weeks."

It's a huge loss for an offense that has been going through Woods in the pass game. McVay admitted there was concern this might end Woods' season, but he said the team got "positive news" that he'll only miss a couple weeks at best. In Woods' absence, possibly Sammy Watkins will get more involved and see more than 3-4 targets per game. It'll be a committee approach.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Robert Woods (shoulder) isn’t dealing with structural damage.

Woods went down in the fourth quarter against the Vikings, but his shoulder injury isn’t considered serious. He could potentially play through it without missing time. There should be more clarity on Woods when the Rams return to practice Wednesday.

Robert Woods (shoulder) was spotted with a sling on his left arm following the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Vikings.

Woods suffered the injury during the fourth quarter, so there was not much information about the severity following the game. "They’re getting it checked out right now," coach Sean McVay said. "It happened so late in the game, we’re not exactly sure." Easily the Rams' best receiver over the last month, losing Woods would be a blow, especially with a massive showdown against the Saints up next.

Tyler Higbee caught 1-of-5 targets for five yards in the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Vikings.

Higbee has shown flashes here and there, but he's not a realistic fantasy option.
Nov 19 - 6:23 PM

Sammy Watkins caught 3-of-4 targets for 36 yards in the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Vikings.

The catches matched an eight-week-high actually, and Watkins predictably came back down after scoring touchdowns in Weeks 9 and 10. Watkins got the Xavier Rhodes treatment in this one. He'll look to bounce back against the Saints in Week 12, but the New Orleans pass defense has played really well since the start of the season, and Watkins isn't getting nearly enough volume.

Cooper Kupp caught 6-of-7 targets for 64 yards in the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Vikings.

It's a solid PPR day for the rookie, but he had an awful real-life game. At the end of one of his catches, Kupp lost a fumble at the Vikings' two-yard line when the game was still tied 7-7 in the first half. It flipped the momentum, and the Rams never again flirted with the end zone. He also committed an awful drop on a 3rd-and-10 pass that would have set the Rams up in the red zone. Kupp gets a good draw against the Saints as the Rams' slot man in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 5:56 PM

Robert Woods caught 8-of-11 targets for 81 yards in the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Vikings.

Woods' 11 targets were four more than Cooper Kupp to lead the team. It's a step back from his two previous monster games, but Woods continues to have one of the safest floors, especially in PPR formats. While Sammy Watkins drew a lot of Xavier Rhodes' coverage, Woods got to run a bunch of routes at burnable Trae Waynes. Unfortunately, the Rams scored just seven points. Woods will remain a WR2 next week at home against the Saints, if he's healthy. Coach Sean McVay said Woods injured his shoulder and will have tests done.

Jared Goff completed 23-of-37 passes for 225 yards in the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Vikings.

After lighting the Giants and Texans on fire in back-to-back games following the bye, Goff predictably came back to this planet in a tough road spot at the Vikings. Goff marched the Rams right down the field on the opening drive that was capped by a Todd Gurley rushing score, but the offense did very little after that drive. Goff could have possibly had a touchdown pass, but Cooper Kupp made a catch and lost a fumble as he was charging toward the goal line at the two-yard line. Goff will look to bounce back next week at home against the Saints.
Nov 19 - 5:22 PM

Todd Gurley rushed 15 times for 37 yards and one touchdown in the Rams' 24-7, Week 11 loss to the Vikings.

Gurley added three catches for 19 yards on four targets and accounted for the Rams' lone touchdown, capping off the opening drive with a six-yard rushing score. The Rams did whatever they wanted on that opening possession but didn't even sniff the end zone the rest of the day outside of a fumble by Cooper Kupp at the two-yard line. Gurley will be an RB1 next week at home when the 7-3 Rams host the 8-2 Saints in another big NFC matchup.
Nov 19 - 4:36 PM

Rams CB Kayvon Webster suffered a concussion Week 11 against the Vikings.

Rookie UDFA Dominique Hatfield is now in the game in Webster opposite Trumaine Johnson. Nickell Robey-Coleman covers the slot for the Rams.
Nov 19 - 2:53 PM

Rams declared TE Derek Carrier, RB Macolm Brown, QB Brandon Allen, RB Justin Davis, OT Cornelius Lucas, CB Troy Hill, and OLB Ejuan Price inactive for Week 11 against the Vikings.

The Rams are one of the healthiest teams in the league.
Nov 19 - 11:37 AM

Rams OLB Robert Quinn (illness) returned to practice Wednesday.

Quinn missed every practice last week and the game against the Texans with an undisclosed illness. He was limited on Wednesday, but even that level of work puts him on track to return this week. Quinn has just 2.5 sacks in eight games this season.
Nov 16 - 8:59 AM

Cooper Kupp hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 47 yards in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Texans.

Kupp finished tied for second on the team in both targets and catches, but he never managed to convert the big-play or touchdown which would have made his fantasy line look a lot better. That has been a problem all year for the rookie, who has topped 60 yards just once and not since Week 1. Kupp remains a solid play in PPR leagues, but Robert Woods is the better option at this point.
Nov 12 - 7:41 PM

Sammy Watkins hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Texans.

Watkins' first catch did not come until there were under two minutes left in the third quarter, but Jared Goff went right back to him on a screen the next play and the receiver delivered with a 17-yard touchdown. Watkins has now scored in back-to-back games, but he has just five total targets over that span. He will be someone to bet against next week in Minnesota.
Nov 12 - 7:38 PM

Todd Gurley rushed 11 times for 68 yards and hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 68 yards in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Texans.

Gurley woke up a sleepy game with a 43-yard gain on a screen pass in the second quarter, and he followed that up with a 15-yard run on the next play to set up a field goal. He got loose for a 34-yard run in the fourth quarter, but that was about it in a game the passing attack ended early with some big plays. This was just the third game this season Gurley failed to find the end zone, but it is difficult to scoff at 136 total yards. Gurley will be a locked-in RB1 even in a tough matchup with the Vikings next week.
