Rams LB Micah Kiser (knee) is active for today's game against the Seahawks. That should mean he's back in the starting lineup in place of Troy Reeder. It'll be Kiser's 1st action since Week 11.

Rams ILB Micah Kiser (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Seahawks. He hasn't played since spraining the knee in Week 11 and would thus present risk as an IDP option even if active. Kiser did return to 3 limited practices this week, though. We'd bet on him playing. We'll update his status when inactives come out Saturday. If Kiser still can't get back into the lineup, then Troy Reeder would continue to start in his place.

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.

The Rams have activated LB Micah Kiser off IR. Kiser missed the past 5 games with a knee injury. Activating him now, though — especially given injury and COVID impacts at other positions — makes us believe they’ll throw him back into the lineup. Expect Kiser to take his job back from Troy Reeder unless we hear otherwise

The Rams placed LB Micah Kiser on IR this week with a knee injury. That means he'll miss at least the next 3 games, starting with Sunday's 49ers matchup. When Kiser missed Week 5, Troy Reeder took the playing time lead among LBs and racked up 11 tackles and 3 sacks against Washington. He'll be an upside option for IDP lineups over the next 3 games.

Rams LB Micah Kiser (groin) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the 49ers. Kiser put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday and then returned to a full practice Friday. That points to him having a good shot to play this week. We'll confirm Kiser's status Sunday. Troy Reeder would be the fill-in if Kiser can't play.

Rams S Jordan Fuller re-injured his right shoulder late in Sunday's win over Washington. The team announced Tuesday that he's headed to IR. It's not yet clear how soon the Rams expect him to return, but Fuller will miss at least the next 3 games. Taylor Rapp will step back into his spot and is worth picking up in most IDP leagues where you start DBs. Elsewhere on the Rams defense, HC Sean McVay said he hopes to get LB Micah Kiser back for Week 6. That would push Week 5 standout Troy Reeder back to a reserve role. We'll keep an eye on Kiser's participation leading up to Sunday night's clash with the 49ers.

Rams LB Micah Kiser (groin) is inactive for today's game against Washington. He leaves no safe LB option available for IDP owners. Kenny Young should be the best bet for playing time behind him, as the other regular starter. But Rams coaches may elect to keep him at his normal limited playing time. Troy Reeder looks like the best bet to join the lineup. CB Troy Hill (ankle) is active after hitting the day questionable.

Rams LB Micah Kiser (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. He made it back for a limited practice Friday after sitting out the 1st 2 days. Kiser looks pretty risky as an IDP option, even if he's active. We'll check his status Sunday morning, though. If he's out, Kenny Young and Troy Reeder look like the best options to start. It's tough to know whether either would see Kiser's full-time snaps, though.

Rams LB Micah Kiser left Sunday's win over the Giants in the 3rd quarter with a groin injury and did not return. Kenny Young saw no boost to his playing time in Kiser's absence, spending just 50% of the snaps on the field. Troy Reeder saw his 1st action of the season on defense and would likely start in Kiser's place if Kiser misses further time.

The Rams expect 2nd-year LB Micah Kiser to step in for Mark Barron this season, according to the team website. L.A. released Barron after last season, jettisoning an ILB starter who played 74% of the snaps over his 12 games. Kiser sounds headed for a similar role. “It’ll be in those first and second-down plays for sure,” DC Wade Phillips said, via Myles Simmons of the team website. “Cory [Littleton] is such a good coverage guy and then we’ve got a lot of safeties that can come in and help us on third downs, so I think his main role certainly right now will be first and second down as a base defensive player.” We'll see if Kiser can grow beyond that, but he entered the league as a thumper who rated poorly in coverage. Missing sub-package situations will obviously limit his tackle upside. Kiser's realistic IDP ceiling for 2019 likely sits in LB4 range. He'll begin the year as a waiver-wire watch.

The L.A. Rams spent a 5th-round pick on Virginia LB Micah Kiser on Saturday, before picking up 2 more LBs. Seventh-round pick Travin Howard averaged 115 total tackles over 3 seasons at TCU, including 20.5 tackles for loss. He also defensed 7 passes in his final campaign. Undrafted free agent Tegray Scales tallied 214 total tackles, including 36.5 for loss and 13 sacks over his final 2 seasons at Indiana. The 230-pounder also contributed 8 career INTs. Kiser, though, is the best bet to take over the spot vacated when the Rams traded ILB Alec Ogletree to the Giants. Kizer racked up 393 tackles over 3 full starting seasons at Virginia. That included 33.5 tackles for loss and 19 sacks. Kizer added 12 passes defensed at 8 forced fumbles over that span. He then tested fairly well, including a 62nd-percentile speed score at 6'0, 238 pounds. Keep Kiser in mind as you prepare for the rookie draft in your IDP dynasty league.
