Rams QBs John Wolford, Baker Mayfield and Bryce Perkins are active for tonight's game vs. the Raiders. It's unclear what the team's plan is at QB tonight, so we'd avoid the situation in all fantasy formats.

Rams QB John Wolford (neck) is questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Raiders. He got in limited practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. HC Sean McVay said Wednesday that QB Baker Mayfield will likely be active for this one, but we doubt he plays after just joining the team on Tuesday. QB Bryce Perkins figures to get the start if Wolford is out.

Rams QB John Wolford is day to day with a sore neck, per HC Sean McVay. The fill-in QB took his lumps in Week 13, throwing for 178 yards and 2 picks. Los Angeles plays on Thursday night (vs. Vegas).

Rams QB Matt Stafford (neck) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. He's cleared the concussion protocol, HC Sean McVay said Friday, but is still dealing with the neck injury. McVay also announced Friday that QB John Wolford will get the start this weekend but that QB Bryce Perkins will also be available. The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue believes the Rams might use both QBs, which we saw back in Week 10. It's obviously a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Rams HC Sean McVay confirmed that QB Matt Stafford (concussion, neck) is not expected to play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday. We'll see whether L.A. sticks with QB Bryce Perkins or goes back to QB John Wolford, but neither guy would be more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy football.

Rams fill-in QB Bryce Perkins threw for just 100 yards in Sunday's loss at Kansas City. He tallied 1 TD vs. 2 INTs and took 3 sacks. Perkins did run for 44 yards on 9 attempts, leading the team in that category. Adam Schefter reported over the weekend that the Rams might not bring QB Matthew Stafford back this season. We'll see, though, whether John Wolford gets the nod over Perkins in Week 13.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Rams are "uncertain when or if" QB Matthew Stafford will return this season. Stafford is out for today's game at Kansas City with a neck strain. He has also landed in the league concussion protocol twice, though HC Sean McVay says the 2nd concussion hasn't been confirmed. It's easy to forget that we were all concerned about an issue with Stafford's right elbow entering the season. Throw in his myriad physical issues and a 3-7 record -- which will almost certainly add a loss to the Chiefs -- and it would make sense to let Stafford take the rest of the year off.

Rams QB Matt Stafford is out for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs, HC Sean McVay said. Stafford is in the concussion protocol and is being evaluated for a neck injury after experiencing numbness in his legs during last week's loss to the Saints. It certainly seems like Stafford could miss more time beyond Week 12. QB Bryce Perkins is in line to make his 1st career start on Sunday.

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 HC Sean McVay said Monday that QB Matt Stafford is still being evaluated for a concussion and is uncertain for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. "I think you wanna be really careful with that," McVay said. "It's gonna be about the person first and foremost." Considering he just sustained a concussion back in Week 9, we'd be surprised if Stafford played this weekend. His absence would leave the starting job to either QB John Wolford, who missed Week 11 with a neck injury, or QB Bryce Perkins.

Rams QB Matt Stafford headed back to the locker room to get checked for a concussion in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Saints. Stafford, of course, missed last week's game with a concussion. We'll update his status when we know more. QB Bryce Perkins has entered for Los Angeles, with QB John Wolford out with a neck injury.
