The Rams are re-signing OLB Leonard Floyd for $64 million over 4 years, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Floyd racked up a career-high 10.5 sacks in his 1st season with the Rams. But among the top 59 edge players in pass-rush snaps, Floyd tied for just 32nd in Pro Football Focus' pass-rushing productivity. He landed with the Rams after the Bears released him last March. We'll see what Floyd has in store for his age-29 season (and beyond). Don't expect him to land too high in our 2021 IDP rankings, though.
Rams OLB Leonard Floyd (abdomen) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. He suffered the injury late in the week and could be a risk for re-injury, but Floyd is available if you planned to use him.
The Rams have ruled LB Micah Kiser (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. They activated him off IR earlier this week, but Kiser clearly isn't yet ready to play. He missed the entire week of practice. That keeps Troy Reeder as your top IDP option among Rams LBs. OLB Leonard Floyd is questionable for the game after sustaining an abdominal injury during the week. He missed Friday's practice after not being listed the previous 2 days. We'll check his status Sunday afternoon.
Rams OLB Leonard Floyd (knee) is active for today's game against the Seahawks. He's just a low-level IDP option.
The Falcons have reached a 3-year deal with EDGE Dante Fowler worth up to $48 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fowler was a bust in Jacksonville after arriving as the 3rd pick of the 2015 NFL Draft. But he rebounded with the Rams, delivering 11.5 sacks, 16 tackles for loss and 16 QB hits last season. Fowler will be just 26 when the season begins. If he can continue performing the way he did as a Ram, Fowler would help Atlanta and be fantasy relevant. He'll carry more IDP upside if his new situation means a DL designation. The Rams, meanwhile, signed EDGE Leonard Floyd to a 1-year deal to take Fowler's place. The Bears dumped Floyd this week, but he arrives with more production behind him than Fowler brought with him from Jacksonville.
The Bears on Tuesday agreed to a 5-year, $70 million deal with EDGE Robert Quinn, including $30 million guaranteed. Quinn rebounded to tie for 9th in the NFL with 11.5 sacks last season and tie for 16th with 22 QB hits. That followed just 24 total sacks over his previous 4 seasons, though, including 2015 and 2016 campaigns halved by injury. Quinn turns 30 in May and has proved a dynamic pass rusher when healthy. He and Khalil Mack have a chance to become the league's top pass-rushing duo over the next couple of years. His move to Chicago's 3-4 base, though, also should change Quinn's designation in most IDP leagues from DE to LB. That will hurt his fantasy value even if he continues to produce. The Bears also reportedly will release former 1st-round OLB Leonard Floyd -- who had been starting in Quinn's new spot. Dallas, meanwhile, must replace the guy who led last year's defense by 6.5 sacks.
Bears OLB Leonard Floyd had surgery Sunday on the right hand he fractured in Saturday's 2nd preseason game. HC Matt Nagy said it "went well," according to ESPN, and that they're "staying optimistic" that he'll be ready for the regular-season opener. We'll see. Floyd would likely have to play with some sort of club on the right hand, which could challenge his pass-rushing moves.
Bears OLB Leonard Floyd left Saturday night's game against the Broncos with a left hand injury. According to the Chicago Tribune, Floyd was in a hard cast after the game and headed for further testing on Sunday. HC Matt Nagy, however, said "I don't think so" when asked whether Floyd (or TE Adam Shaheen) had suffered a fracture. We'll see where this goes. A healthy Floyd would be the team's lead pass-rusher.
Bears OLB Leonard Floyd left Sunday's game with a knee injury. HC John Fox said in his Monday press conference that they believe Floyd avoided an ACL tear -- which was originally feared -- but that he'll miss some time. We'll see about the official diagnosis.
Bears CB Prince Amukamara (ankle) is out for the 2nd straight game Sunday against the Bucs. OLB Leonard Floyd (back) is active, though, after entering the day questionable.
The Bears defense will be without OLBs Leonard Floyd (concussion) and Pernell McPhee (shoulder) for today's game against the Vikings. Joining them on the inactive list are S Deon Bush (ankle) and CB Bryce Callahan (hamstring). CB Tracy Porter (knee), OLB Willie Young (knee) and CB Cre'von LeBlanc (knee) are active despite entering the day questionable.
Bears OLB Leonard Floyd left the field on a cart, strapped to a backboard in Sunday's loss to the Giants. He went to a local hospital, but the team announced that he was later released and would travel back to Chicago with his teammates. We'll keep an eye out for further info heading into a Week 12 matchup with the Titans.
The Bears traded up from 11 to 9 to draft OLB Leonard Floyd. The former Bulldog showed plenty of speed off the edge in college but could stand to add some strength. Chicago DC Vic Fangio obviously believes in Floyd's edge-rushing ability, though, and he should present double-digit sack upside at least within a couple of years.
