Rams DL Greg Gaines (hand) and S Taylor Rapp (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. We'll check their statuses Sunday morning.

Rams HC Sean McVay said Friday that RB Cam Akers (Achilles) is not likely to play vs. the Ravens this weekend. Akers wasn't a realistic fantasy option this week anyway, but his absence just makes RB Sony Michel an even bigger lock to dominate backfield work. Jake Funk will be Los Angeles' #2 RB.

Rams HC Sean McVay said RB Cam Akers (Achilles) could play vs. the Ravens this weekend. Akers was just designated to return to practice last week after his mid-July Achilles tear. The Rams were originally planning to get Akers back for the playoffs, but they have a need at the position with RB Darrell Henderson headed to IR. We'll see if Akers ends up active on Sunday, but we wouldn't expect him to see more than a few touches. Sony Michel should continue to dominate backfield work.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson will be placed on IR with an MCL sprain suffered in Sunday's win over the Vikings, HC Sean McVay said. Henderson is expected to miss 3-5 weeks, which means he could be out unless the Rams reach the Super Bowl. We'll keep tabs on his recovery.

Bears WR Allen Robinson has been activated from the COVID list. He figures to siphon a few targets from WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet this weekend, but A-Rob isn't a fantasy option vs. the Giants.

Rams LB Ernest Jones left Sunday's win over the Vikings with a left ankle injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the team believes he suffered a high-ankle sprain. The early word is that he's "week to week," which means he'll almost certainly miss at least this Sunday's game at Baltimore. With Jones leaving early, Troy Reeder led Rams LBs in playing time at 86%. He'll be a solid-to-good option for IDP lineups in Week 17.

The Rams believe RB Darrell Henderson suffered a knee sprain in today's win over the Vikings, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The hope is it’s minor, but he’ll have an MRI on Monday that will tell the full story," Rapoport adds. So we should learn more tomorrow. Henderson, though, is off the fantasy radar now that Sony Michel has taken over as the Rams' feature back.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson was knocked out of Sunday's game vs. the Vikings with a knee injury. That happened on his 1st carry of the game in the 4th quarter. We'll look for an update on Henderson's injury, but this is clearly Sony Michel's backfield right now.

Rams DL Greg Gaines (ankle) is active for today's game against the Vikings.

The Rams "plan" to have RB Cam Akers (Achilles) back for the playoffs, GM Les Snead told NFL.com. It'd cap a remarkable recovery from Akers' mid-July Achilles tear. We'd be surprised if Akers had a big role in the playoffs -- but he'd turn Los Angeles' backfield into a 3-man committee alongside Sony Michel and Darrell Henderson.

The Rams have activated RB Cam Akers from IR. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, however, that the team did so go help him receive pension credit for the season. A player apparently needs to be on the active roster for at least 3 games. Schefter adds that Akers is not expected to play in the regular season but could "contribute this post-season." Any level of involvement would be impressive for Akers after he suffered an Achilles' tendon tear in July. We wouldn't bet on him for significant fantasy impact even in NFL playoffs leagues, though.

Rams DL Greg Gaines is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings with an ankle injury. He put in limited practices Wednesday and Friday, with a missed practice in between. We'll see about Gaines' status Sunday morning.

The Rams on Friday activated S Jordan Fuller from the COVID list, clearing him to play against the Vikings on Sunday.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee has been activated from the COVID list. He figures to return for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings, although he'll carry elevated risk after missing most of the practice week.

Rams RB Cam Akers (Achilles) has been designated to return from IR. It's remarkable considering he tore his Achilles just about 5 months ago. The Rams now have 21 days to place Akers on the active roster. We certainly don't expect him to play before most fantasy seasons are over, but we'll keep an eye on Akers' progress. Perhaps he returns for the NFL playoffs.

The Rams have activated CB Jalen Ramsey from the COVID list, making him eligible to play Tuesday against the Seahawks. Ramsey has been in our Week 15 DB rankings and might carry even more upside if Tyler Lockett misses the game. (He's no lock to make it off the COVID list before the game.) No Lockett would likely mean even more targets for D.K. Metcalf, whom Ramsey figures to shadow as much as possible.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson has been activated from the COVID list. Assuming he's over the thigh issue that cost him Week 13, he should play vs. the Seahawks on Tuesday night. It's unclear exactly how touches will be divvied between Henderson and RB Sony Michel. Consider both guys risk/reward fantasy plays against Seattle's 31st-ranked RB defense.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson remains on the COVID list as of Saturday morning. He has some extra time to get cleared after his game vs. the Seahawks was moved to Tuesday. We’ll let you know via Shark Bites when he’s cleared, but Henderson will be tough to wait on if he’s not cleared before Sunday’s games kick off. His status also impacts RB Sony Michel’s fantasy value, of course.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee has been placed back on the COVID list. He, of course, missed last week's game vs. the Cardinals after a false positive test. He presumably actually tested positive this time and is now unlikely to play vs. the Seahawks on Tuesday night. With Higbee out last week, TE Kendall Blanton caught 2 of 3 targets for 29 yards.

Bears WR Allen Robinson has been placed on the COVID list. He'll likely miss Monday night's game vs. the Vikings. Robinson, of course, has been a major disappointment this season and shouldn't have been in your Week 15 fantasy plans. His absence is a slight upgrade for WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet.
