Rams TE Tyler Higbee (elbow) is active for today’s game vs. the Chargers. He got in just limited practices on Thursday and Friday but never seemed to be in danger of missing this one. See where Higbee lands in the Week 17 TE Rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Rams TE Tyler Higbee (elbow) will play vs. the Chargers. Higbee only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, but there never seemed to be much doubt about his availability for this one.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Chargers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and is expected to play, according to HC Sean McVay. Higbee is coming off a huge 9-94-2 line on Christmas, putting him back on the fantasy radar. Just remember that he totaled 6 catches on 8 targets for 38 yards in QB Baker Mayfield’s first 2 games.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee caught 9 balls for 94 yards among a team-dominating 11 targets (39.3%). Higbee also claimed both of the team's TD receptions. No other Ram caught more than 3 passes. TE Brycen Hopkins' 57 yards (on 3 catches) ranked 2nd on the team. No other teammate reached 30 yards.

Rams RB Cam Akers led the team in both rushing and receiving in Sunday's loss vs. the Packers. The third-year back posted 12 carries for 65 yards on the ground in addition to reeling in all 3 of his targets for 35 yards in the receiving game. The only other Ram of note from this game is TE Tyler Higbee, a player who found the end zone on top of his 4 catches on 5 targets for 27 yards. At this stage of the fantasy season, it is tough to trust any Rams player (RB, WR, TE, or otherwise) with playoff hopes on the line in Week 16. The Broncos' defense ranks in the bottom 12 in adjusted fantasy points allowed to both RBs and WRs this season. Akers might be a decent flex option at best, but that's about it as far as the Rams are concerned.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. He got in just limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so it’s safe to assume that he’s not at 100%. Higbee will also be catching passes from QB Bryce Perkins. That keeps him outside our top 12 TEs for the week.

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 TE Tyler Higbee (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Chiefs after getting in just limited practices on Thursday and Friday. HC Sean McVay said Friday that he expects Higbee to play. But between the knee issue and a backup QB, he’s a shaky fantasy option.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We'll see what he does tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game vs. the Chiefs.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee missed Wednesday's practice with a knee issue. HC Sean McVay labeled him "day to day." Check back tomorrow for another update on Higbee's status for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs.

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).

Rams WR Cooper Kupp has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. A source tells Schefter that it "doesn't sound good." No timetable is given, but high-ankle sprains are generally 4-6 week injuries. So, for now, Kupp owners should brace to be without him until at least Week 15 -- and possibly longer. Kupp leaves behind a massive 30% of Rams targets. Allen Robinson, Van Jefferson, Ben Skowronek and Tyler Higbee should all pick up extra volume, but this Rams passing game could be a disaster with Kupp sidelined.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee caught all 8 of his targets for 73 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, leading the team in all 3 categories. WR Ben Skowronek checked in 2nd among Rams with 7 targets in a game that saw the team lose Cooper Kupp to injury. WR Allen Robinson ranked 3rd with 6 targets and finished 2nd in catches (4) and yards (44).

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Rams QB Matt Stafford (concussion) a "long shot" to play against the Cardinals today. "Not ruled out yet, but not a great chance," Rapoport adds. Our current projections assume that QB John Wolford to be under center for the Rams today.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Rams QB John Wolford is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Rams, barring a "drastic change." QB Matt Stafford remains in the concussion protocol. We've had Wolford projected to start since Thursday.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp enjoyed a huge game in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, despite coming off an ankle sprain late in their Week 8 loss. Kupp racked up 8-127-1 receiving on 9 targets in a game that saw the Rams throw for only 165 yards in all. WRs Allen Robinson and Van Jefferson tied for 2nd with 5 targets apiece. Robinson caught 3 for 24 yards. Jefferson went without a catch. TE Tyler Higbee went catchless on 1 target.
