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 active for today’s game vs. the Bucs. He was limited in practice all week, so it’s safe to assume that Jefferson still isn’t at 100% after that early-August knee surgery. He shouldn’t be in season-long fantasy lineups.
Rams WR Van Jefferson (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Bucs. HC Sean McVay said Friday that Jefferson will play, but it sure looks like he’s not at 100% yet.
Rams HC Sean McVay said Friday that WR Van Jefferson (knee) will play vs. the 49ers this weekend and have his "normal workload," per ESPN's Sarah Barshop. McVay added that Jefferson will be monitored throughout the game. A "normal workload" for Jefferson last year meant an 80% snap rate and 14.7% target share. It'd be a little surprising if Jefferson did that much in his 1st game since early-August knee surgery, but it sounds like McVay expects him to contribute. We'd try not to use Jefferson in season-long fantasy lineups this week, but he's an intriguing DFS flier.
Rams WR Van Jefferson (knee) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He was just designated to return from IR earlier this week after early-August knee surgery. We'll see if Jefferson is ready for this weekend's game vs. the 49ers.
Rams WR Van Jefferson (knee) has been designated to return from IR. He'll practice on Wednesday and is eligible to play vs. the 49ers this weekend. We'll see if Jefferson is ready after early-August knee surgery. A struggling Rams passing game could certainly use his field-stretching ability. Jefferson is worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues.
