The Rams have released K Cairo Santos and will get K Greg Zuerlein back from his groin injury for Week 7. Zuerlein drilled 4 FGs and 3 XPs in his lone appearance this year after finishing 1st at his position in fantasy points in 2017. He's right back to being an elite fantasy option.
The Rams have released K Sam Ficken, who made just 1 of 3 FGs over the past 2 weeks. K Greg Zuerlein isn't ready to return from his groin injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, so we'll see who the Rams sign.
UPDATE: The Rams have signed K Cairo Santos. With a career 84.1% FG conversion rate, he'll be a viable spot starter for however long Zuerlein remains out.
The Rams have signed K Sam Ficken after K Greg Zuerlein injured his groin in pregame warmups yesterday. The Rams aren't expected to place Zuerlein on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but it looks like he'll miss time. Zuerlein owners need to add a replacement off the waiver wire this week.
UPDATE: Rams HC Sean McVay said Monday that Zuerline will be out “at least a few weeks.”
Rams K Greg Zuerlein suffered a groin injury during warmups prior to Sunday's game against the Rams and is questionable to return. The Rams went for 2 after their 1st TD and might be forced to do the same the rest of the way.
Rams K Greg Zuerlein has been placed on IR with a back injury. It's a significant blow to a Super Bowl contender. Zuerlein has arguably been the best K in the league this year, connecting on 38 of 40 FG attempts, including 6 from 50+ yards. He'll be replaced by K Sam Ficken, who's never attempted a regular-season kick. He's gone 5 of 6 on FGs over the past 2 preseasons but connected on just 72% of his attempts at Penn State. We wouldn't mess with Ficken in Week 16 fantasy lineups.
Rams K Greg Zuerlein (hip) put in a full week of practice and is probable for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He’ll reclaim kicking duties but isn’t a fantasy option on a struggling offense.
Rams K Greg Zuerlein (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. K Zach Hocker gets another start but isn’t a fantasy option.
Rams K Greg Zuerlein (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He didn’t kick all week. K Zach Hocker will get the call again but isn’t a fantasy option.

Rams K Greg Zuerlein was added to Friday’s injury report as limited with a groin. He’s officially questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bengals. We’ll see if St. Louis adds a kicker, but avoid Zuerlein in fantasy lineups regardless.
Rams rookie K Greg Zuerlein has already become a fan favorite because of his monster leg. He reportedly knocked in a 70-yard FG in practice. Zuerlein made 21 consecutive FGs for Missouri Western State last year, including a 58-yarder. He's locked-in as the Rams' kicker. And according to insider Jason La Canfora, HC Jeff Fisher has hinted that he's "plotting for the right time and situation to attempt a record field goal." The current record is 63 yards. "I've never seen the ball explode off of someone's foot like this before," Fisher said. Zuerlein could be a nice end-game pick if your fantasy league awards big bonuses for long FGs.
The Browns have released K Josh Brown. The 33-year-old made just 75% of his FG attempts last season -- his lowest mark since 2005. St. Louis will forge ahead with 6th-round rookie Greg Zuerlein. The Missouri Western State product set a DII record last year with 21 consecutive FGs. He made 23 of 24 overall.
