Shark Bites

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Rams WR Van Jefferson will “see a specialist on Monday for a knee issue that has been plaguing him.” The wideout has reportedly been “doing maintenance” and is in danger of missing the next few weeks. Rapaport’s report includes the possibility that he’ll need surgery. We’ll watch for more after the visit. Jefferson is only a late-round pick now, carrying limited risk. You might want to back away from him for the next few days at least in best-ball drafts, though. Tutu Atwell might find a significant opportunity boost if Jefferson misses extended time

Recent Shark Bites

The Rams on Saturday placed WR Van Jefferson on IR. That's a little surprising given that he avoided IR to open the season while working back from summer knee surgery. This means he'll miss at least 3 more games beyond Sunday's clash with the Cardinals. Jefferson's continued absence means more playing time for WR Ben Skowronek and helps the target availability for WR Allen Robinson and TE Tyler Higbee. The Rams also elevated WR Jacob Harris from the practice squad Saturday.

Rams WR Van Jefferson (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals. He remained sidelined in practice all week and has no timetable for return.

Rams WR Van Jefferson (knee) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons. He still hasn't returned to practice after early-August knee surgery, so don't bank on a Week 3 return. Ben Skowronek replaced Jefferson as Los Angeles' #3 WR in the opener, turning 6 targets into 4 catches for 25 scoreless yards.

Rams WR Van Jefferson (knee) is out for Thursday night's opener vs. the Bills. He didn't practice all week, so a Week 2 return doesn't look particularly likely. Jefferson's snaps are expected to be picked up by a committee of WRs Tutu Atwell, Ben Skowronek and Brandon Powell. None is a viable fantasy play outside of DFS showdown contests. WR Cooper Kupp, WR Allen Robinson and TE Tyler Higbee should be the clear focal points of the Rams' passing game against Buffalo.

Pro Football Network's Aaron Wilson confirms that Rams WR Van Jefferson (knee) won't play in Thursday night's opener vs. the Bills. But Wilson hears that Jefferson is expected back "within the first few games" of the season. We'll see if he's able to get on the practice field next week.
