The Rams re-signed K Brett Maher. He spent the first seven games of the season with Los Angeles, making 17 of 23 FGs (74%) and 12 of 13 XPs (92%). Maher will kick in Sunday's regular-season finale vs. the 49ers -- and presumably in the playoffs if he doesn't blow this opportunity.

Rams WR Puka Nacua secured 5 of 8 targets for a team-leading 118 receiving yards in Week 17 vs. the Giants. The rookie is beginning to close in on making his 2023 campaign historic in nature. Nacua is just 28 yards shy of breaking the rookie receiving yards record (1,473) set by Oilers WR Bill Groman in 1960 and only 3 catches away from Jaylen Waddle’s rookie receptions record (104) from 2021. He’s got a strong shot at hurdling these marks in Week 18 vs. the 49ers and is in a tremendous position moving forward. Despite the uncertain long-term future of QB Matthew Stafford (who will be 36 in 2024), Nacua established himself as a dominant force and currently ranks seventh among WRs with 17.8 PPR points per game. You’re walking into next season feeling pretty good about your dynasty team if you roster Nacua.

Congratulations if you started Rams RB Kyren Williams in your fantasy championship. The second-year back exploded in Week 17 vs. the Giants, tallying 101 scrimmage yards with 3 rushing TDs on 22 touches. Those who remained patient with Williams in dynasty or picked him up off the waiver wire in season-long leagues were handed a player who ranked second among RBs in PPR points per game (21.2) with a massive average of 23 touches per game in 2023. It’s fair to proclaim him as a true “league winner” this season despite missing four games due to a high ankle sprain. He’ll assuredly be treated as a bonafide RB1 in 2024, regardless of format.

Rams LB Ernest Jones (illness) is active for today's game against the Giants. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

11:36am EST 12/31/23

Rams WR Puka Nacua (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. He missed Friday's practice with what HC Sean McVay called hip tightness but never seemed to be in danger of missing this one. Nacua is safe to keep in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Rams WR Puka Nacua (hip) is expected to play vs. the Giants today, ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms. Nacua is listed as questionable after missing Friday's practice with what HC Sean McVay labeled hip "tightness." But McVay also said that he fully expected Nacua to play. We're not projecting the hip to be a factor today.

Rams LB Ernest Jones missed Friday's practice with an illness and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. HC Sean McVay said he expects Jones to play, though, according to multiple reports. We'll watch for confirmation, but expect to have Jones available for your IDP lineups.

Rams WR Puka Nacua (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Giants. He missed Friday's practice with what HC Sean McVay called hip tightness. McVay also said that Nacua should be fine for Sunday's game. He can stay penciled into Week 17 fantasy lineups for now. We'll get the Rams' inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) is not listed on the final injury report for Thursday night's game vs. the Saints. He was splitting No. 3 WR duties with Demarcus Robinson last time we saw him. Atwell and Robinson are only in play in one-game DFS contests.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell cleared concussion protocol and will be back for Thursday night's game vs. the Saints, HC Sean McVay said. Atwell split No. 3 WR duties with Demarcus Robinson in his last two healthy games. Neither guy is a Week 16 fantasy option outside of one-game DFS contests.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Commanders. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so Atwell should be back for Week 16. His absence today leaves Demarcus Robinson as Los Angeles’ No. 3 WR. He has some deep-league and DFS appeal against Washington’s 32nd-ranked WR defense.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) is "unlikely" to play vs. the Commanders this afternoon, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Atwell was a full participant in Friday's practice but evidently hasn't been cleared for game action yet. He should be back for Week 16. Atwell's absence today leaves Demarcus Robinson as the Rams' No. 3 WR against the Commanders' 32nd-ranked WR defense.

The Rams have added DT Aaron Donald to the injury report. He's questionable for tomorrow's game against the Commanders because of "tightness in his groin," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We've knocked Donald down the Week 15 DL rankings. If he's out for the game, the Rams' defense would become a riskier play with likely a lower fantasy ceiling.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Commanders. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so there’s a real chance that he’s cleared in time for Sunday’s kickoff. We should get another update on Atwell’s progress on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning. He’d be just a fantasy flier if he ends up playing – but would knock WR Demarcus Robinson back off the fantasy radar.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (neck) is not listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He’ll be back for Sunday’s game vs. the Commanders. Los Angeles has a big 28.5-point implied total for that one, giving Higbee more TD upside than usual. But he’s finished as a top-12 PPR TE just three times this season, making him tough to trust as a fantasy starter.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That at least gives him a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Commanders, although we'd still consider it unlikely. Check back tomorrow for another update on Atwell's progress.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (neck) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he can make it back for this weekend's game vs. the Commanders, but Higbee would not be a recommended TE1 play. He has just three top-12 fantasy finishes all season.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He's unlikely to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Commanders, which would leave Demarcus Robinson as Los Angeles' No. 3 WR. That matchup against the league's worst WR defense would make Robinson worth a look in DFS and deep season-long fantasy leagues.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell is in the concussion protocol, according to The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue. We'll track Atwell's progress through the protocol this week, but he's unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Commanders. That'd leave Demarcus Robinson as Los Angeles' No. 3 WR -- and a potential deep-league flier against Washington's 31st-ranked WR defense.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp posted a throwback game in Week 14. Handling 10 targets, he racked up 8 catches, 115 yards, and 1 score. Kupp’s performance came on the road against a tough Ravens secondary – and in wet and windy conditions. Matt Stafford’s recent form suggests Kupp can continue rolling, assuming his health cooperates. He couldn't ask for a better Week 15 matchup with the Commanders coming to town.
