Rams HC Sean McVay confirmed on Friday that WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) will play vs. the Eagles this weekend. The team has seemingly played it safe with Kupp's return from his recurring hamstring injury, so we'd expect him to be at least close to 100%. It's still possible that he's on some type of snap count on Sunday, but Kupp would be tough to leave out of Week 5 fantasy lineups considering his dominance since 2021. His return is an obvious threat to WR Puka Nacua and WR Tutu Atwell's volume -- although Nacua would also be nearly impossible to bench. See where all those guys sit in the Week 5 WR Rankings.

The Athletic's Dianna Russini confirms that Rams WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Eagles on Sunday, barring a setback. Russini adds that Kupp has been on a snap count at practice, so it's certainly possible that he's on a snap count this weekend. Still, an active Kupp will be tough to keep out of fantasy lineups -- especially in what figures to be a pass-heavy game from the Rams.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice. So he's made some progress through the protocol but still has work to do to be cleared for Monday night's game vs. the Packers. We'll keep you updated on Garoppolo's status over the next few days.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice. It sure looks like he'll make his 2023 debut vs. the Eagles this weekend. OC Mike LaFleur said Kupp “looks healthy," adding that when Kupp was “gearing up for that first game” before he went on IR, “you could tell he almost could tell that something was still a little bit off. And from my vantage point, it looks like he feels really good.”

Rams RB Kyren Williams (hip) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's expected to be available for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles, but we'll see how Williams is listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Rams QB Matthew Stafford (hip) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He suffered a hip contusion in the Week 4 win over the Colts but is clearly on track to play vs. the Eagles this weekend.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) was officially a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. He's eligible to play vs. the Eagles this weekend, but it's still unclear if he will. We'll keep you updated on his progress leading up to Sunday's kickoff.

Rams RB Kyren Williams (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. He was able to play through the issue last week, and HC Sean McVay said Monday that Williams should be fine for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. We'll keep tabs on his status over the next few days. Ronnie Rivers has been operating as the No. 2 RB behind Williams.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) has been designated to return. He's eligible to practice on Wednesday, which he's expected to do. It's still unclear if Kupp will play vs. the Eagles this weekend, though. We'll keep a close eye on his status.

The Athletic's Dianna Russini reports that the Rams are "hopeful" WR Cooper Kupp can play vs. the Eagles this weekend. The team wants Kupp to be "80-90%" healthy, and Kupp isn't there yet. "They are taking this day-by-day," Russini adds. "The hope is that he plays [against Philadelphia.] ... But they wanna be really careful knowing they wanna see him be able to do what he does well for them vs. rolling him out there and just being ok and even possibly reinjuring it." The vibe we get from both this report and HC Sean McVay's comments last week is that Kupp is worse than 50/50 to play this weekend. We've left him out of the Week 5 Rankings for now but will continue to keep a close eye on his status.

Rams RB Kyren Williams suffered a hip contusion in Sunday's win over the Colts, HC Sean McVay said. Williams was able to play through the issue in Indianapolis, and McVay confirmed that Williams is expected to be fine for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. We'll keep an eye on him.

Rams QB Matthew Stafford suffered a hip contusion in the Week 4 win over the Colts, HC Sean McVay said Monday. "We'll be smart with him, but he should be good to go [for Week 5]," McVay said. "He's a stud, and obviously we saw him gut through that yesterday. Definitely took a good shot there. But we feel like he should be good to go." We'll keep tabs on Stafford's status throughout the week, but it sounds like he'll be available for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles.

Rams WR Puka Nacua is incredible. His 39 catches through the first four games of his NFL career are the most all-time, and the rookie closed out Week 4 with his first career TD vs. the Colts. He led the team in receiving with 9 catches on 10 targets for 163 receiving yards. TE Tyler Higbee also paid off for fantasy managers, logging 5 catches on 11 targets for 64 yards. While his final stat line was a bummer (5 catches, 24 yards), WR Tutu Atwell remained heavily involved and should be a good candidate to bounce back next week vs. the Eagles. This Rams’ passing attack is turning out to be among the best in fantasy.

Rams RB Kyren Williams continued to shoulder a hefty workload in Week 4, logging 25 carries for 103 yards with 2 TDs vs. the Colts. He also caught all 3 of his targets for 24 yards in the receiving game. It’s worth mentioning that his teammate Ronnie Rivers received 9 carries and 2 targets in the contest. His name might be worth considering as a potential add in very deep leagues should he continue to be the spell guy for Williams. Williams will look to continue his success next week vs. the Eagles.

Rams QB Matthew Stafford completed 27 of 40 passes for 319 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT in Week 4’s OT victory vs. the Colts. He’s yet to crack the 20-point mark in 2023, though Stafford has played well enough to continue to be on the 2QB/superflex radar. Next week, he’ll take on a struggling Eagles defense.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (Achilles) is active for today’s game vs. the Colts. He reportedly dealt with Achilles soreness throughout the week and only got in a limited practice on Friday. Higbee would be a risky TE1 play today.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (Achilles) is expected to play against the Colts today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Higbee only got in a limited practice on Friday this week as he dealt with Achilles soreness. That adds some risk to his Week 4 fantasy outlook.

The Raiders have downgraded QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) to out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. That means Brian Hoyer will start. It's obviously a downgrade for WRs Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers. Adams, though, delivered a 7-153-2 receiving line in Jarrett Stidham's first start last year after Derek Carr got benched. And he added a decent 5-73 the following week. So don't treat either player as though he's suddenly unusable, especially against a Chargers D that's already been bad and will now miss stars Joey Bosa and Derwin James. Check our Week 4 WR rankings to see where both settle.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (Achilles) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so it’s safe to assume that he won’t be at 100% if he suits up on Sunday. We’ll look for further updates on Higbee’s status and get the Rams’ inactives around 11:30 am on Sunday.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Chargers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday but still has multiple stages of the protocol to clear in order to play on Sunday. We'll continue to keep you updated on his progress, but there's a good chance that we see QB Brian Hoyer under center for Vegas this week.
