Rams HC Sean McVay expects RB Lance Dunbar (knee) to begin the season on the PUP list. That'd cost him the first 6 games. Dunbar has been sidelined all August with a knee injury and is well off the fantasy radar. His absence is good news for RB Todd Gurley's pass-catching role.

Rams RB Lance Dunbar is "out indefinitely" with a knee injury, according to ESPN's Alden Gonzalez. We don't have any other details at this point. Dunbar has a history of knee trouble, tearing his left ACL and patellar tendon back in 2015 and missing 3 games with a knee injury last year. Los Angeles was looking for Dunbar to contribute to the passing game this season. An extended absence would boost RB Todd Gurley's target projection.

The Rams have signed RB Lance Dunbar to a 1-year deal. He'll slide in to the old Benny Cunningham pass-catching role. Cunningham totaled just 42 grabs in the 2 years since RB Todd Gurley arrived. Dunbar is probably a more explosive player -- he's averaging 9.5 yards per catch for his career -- but is unlikely to emerge as a reliable fantasy option. His arrival does figure to put a cap on RB Todd Gurley's pass-catching upside.

Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) has been activated from the PUP list and cleared to practice. He was already getting some 1st-team reps on Monday, per insider Mike Leslie. Dunbar is about 10 months removed from tearing his ACL, MCL and patella tendon. That's a brutal injury that could certainly sap his explosiveness, so we'll be keeping a close eye on reports on Dunbar over the next few weeks. If he regains pre-injury form, though, he could be a factor in PPR leagues. Dunbar hauled in 21 balls in his 3 full games last season.

The Cowboys expect RB Lance Dunbar to be ready for Week 1, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. Dunbar went down with a torn ACL and patellar tendon last October -- an extremely difficult injury to return from. He remains on the PUP list for now but has reportedly had a good rehab process. Graziano believes that Dunbar "will be the pass-catching RB" this year. We'll see. Dunbar needs to prove that he's healthy and a better pass-catching option than Ezekiel Elliott and Darren McFadden.
