Steelers WR Allen Robinson is “not yet involved in all team activities,” per beat writer Brian Batko. Robinson underwent foot surgery for a stress fracture around the start of December. The 30-year-old (in August) isn’t someone to circle as a late-round flier.

The Rams are finalizing a trade to send WR Allen Robinson to the Steelers, pending Robinson passing a physical. No word yet on the compensation, but the Rams probably aren't getting much. Robinson is set to count $18 million against the 2023 salary cap and has been one of the least efficient WRs in the NFL over the past two seasons. He ranked 86th out of 101 qualifying WRs in yards per route run in 2021 and 90th out of 96 last year. Robinson figures to slide in as Pittsburgh's #3 WR behind Diontae Johnson and George Pickens. He's not an exciting fantasy pick. The Rams, meanwhile, are left with Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, Tutu Atwell, and Ben Skowronek atop the WR depth chart. We'll see if they add to the position.

Update: Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Steelers are getting Robinson and the 251st overall pick of this year's draft in exchange for the 234th overall pick. The Rams are also paying $10.25 million of Robinson’s salary. The Steelers will pay the remaining $5 million. If you needed confirmation that Robinson's tank is empty, there you go.

The Rams are hiring Mike LaFleur as their new OC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. LaFleur replaces Liam Coen, who left Los Angeles after just 1 season to return to his previous post as Kentucky's OC. LaFleur struggled as Jets OC the past 2 years, with both of those teams finishing bottom 8 in both total yards and points. Like Rams HC Sean McVay, LaFleur comes from the Shanahan coaching tree, so there should be plenty of synergy here. McVay will still be running the show, though, so don't expect a big change to the Rams' play calling.

Rams WR Allen Robinson will undergo season-ending foot surgery, HC Sean McVay said after Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it's a stress fracture. So that ends a wildly disappointing 2022 season for Robinson that saw him average just 3.3 catches and 34 yards per game. Through Week 10, he ranked 79th among 85 qualifying WRs in yards per route run. We're not optimistic about Robinson's odds of bouncing back next season.

Rams WR Allen Robinson (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. Los Angeles will roll out WRs Van Jefferson, Ben Skowronek, Brandon Powell, Tutu Atwell and Lance McCutcheon.

Rams WR Allen Robinson (foot) is "not likely" to play vs. the Chiefs today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Robinson was set to serve as Los Angeles' de facto #1 WR with Cooper Kupp out. Los Angeles is now down to WRs Van Jefferson, Ben Skowronek, Brandon Powell, Tutu Atwell and Lance McCutcheon. TE Tyler Higbee is the favorite to lead the team in targets today -- but this is a passing game to try to avoid with QB Bryce Perkins likely making his 1st career start.

Rams WR Allen Robinson (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Chiefs. Between the ankle issue and a backup QB under center, Robinson is not a recommended Week 12 fantasy play.

The Rams are expected to give QB Bryce Perkins 1st-team reps in practice this week. QB Matt Stafford is back in the concussion protocol. QB John Wolford missed last week's game with a neck injury, although he was a full participant in Friday's practice. So it looks like the Rams might just be ready to give Perkins a shot. Perkins signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent back in 2020, following 2 seasons as Virginia's starter. He completed 65% of his passes with 47 TDs vs. 21 INTs for the Cavaliers, adding 1,692 yards and 20 scores on the ground. The 6'3, 215-pounder ran a 4.68-second 40 time at his Pro Day. Perkins played reasonably well this preseason, completing 71% of his passes at 8.1 yards per attempt with 2 TDs and 0 INTs. And he ran 7 times for 73 yards and 2 TDs. Replacing Stafford this past week, Perkins went 5-of-10 passing for 64 yards and ran 3 times for 26 yards. We wouldn't expect him to fare well as a passer if he gets the nod in Kansas City on Sunday, but his rushing ability could make him an intriguing DFS tournament play.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee drew a team-high 8 targets in the 1st game since WR Cooper Kupp landed on RB. He caught 4 for 45 yards. WRs Allen Robinson and Van Jefferson followed him with 5 targets apiece. Robinson and WR Tutu Atwell claimed the team's 2 offensive TDs. We'll see whether QB Matthew Stafford can make it back from his concussion for next Sunday's visit to the Chiefs (but we wouldn't bet on it).
