Los Angeles Rams Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Kupp caught two of three targets for 21 yards during Sunday's 42-7 win.
Impact: After a career-best showing last week against the Eagles, Kupp's quiet outing in Sunday's blowout win was disappointing. Robert Woods' return cut into the rookie's looks against Seattle, as Kupp hauled in 18 of 24 targets for 302 yards and a touchdown during Woods' absence the previous three games. In this contest, a negative game script was also working against Kupp. Los Angeles was in control of the game early and threw just 23 times compared to its 43 rushing attempts. The Eastern Washington product should continue to see consistent looks in the passing attack moving forward, but his value is definitely more volatile with Woods healthy.
News: Watkins caught just two of five targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 42-7 win over Seattle.
Impact: Despite pedestrian reception and yardage numbers for the season, Watkins had buoyed his fantasy value with a touchdown in five of his previous six games. Unfortunately, Los Angeles was in cruise control early Sunday, and with Seattle unable to stop the run, quarterback Jared Goff and the passing attack were quiet. Additionally, the Rams opted to rest their starters, so it was a horrible game script for Watkins' fantasy prospects. Still, his Week 15 showing highlights the receiver's dependency on touchdowns, and Watkins' outlook moving forward is also less promising with Robert Woods healthy.
News: Brown rushed 10 times for 45 yards during Sunday's 42-7 win over Seattle.
Impact: Beside a first-quarter carry, Brown's touches all came with the game out of hand. Todd Gurley ran for 152 yards and three scores on 21 carries, and Brown and Tavon Austin had little trouble gashing the Seahawks while the Rams rested their stars and milked the clock. With Gurley locked in as the high-volume, No. 1 rusher, there are only scraps left over, so Brown's handcuff and standalone value are both extremely limited at this stage of the fantasy season.
News: Austin rushed 10 times for 44 yards during Sunday's 42-7 win over Seattle.
Impact: The speedster's first carry came in the second quarter with the Rams ahead 13-0, and then he didn't touch the ball again until the game was entirely out of hand in the third quarter. Austin still only saw the field for 14 of 71 offensive plays, and he didn't receive a target for a second consecutive week. As a result, there aren't many fantasy settings where he should be relied on, especially at this stage of the season.
News: Greg Zuerlein converted two of two field-goal attempts Sunday as the Los Angeles Rams defeated the Seattle Seahawks 42-7. He made kicks of 36 and 31 yards. Zuerlein tacked on four PATs, but also missed one.
Impact: Zuerlein has now missed as many extra points as he has field goals. The best fantasy kicker of 2017 is now 38 of 40 on 3-point tries and 44 of 46 on PATs.
News: Cooper Kupp had two receptions for 21 yards Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Impact: Robert Woods' return from injury really took a toll on Kupp's numbers, as the rookie had garnered 24 targets and twice broke the 100-yard mark in the three games his teammate missed. Kupp still has some appeal in PPR leagues, though his ceiling isn't nearly as high when the Rams' receiver corps is at full strength.
News: Sammy Watkins had two receptions for 14 yards Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Impact: Watkins came in with a touchdown catch in three straight games, each of which Robert Woods missed due to injury. With Woods back for this one, the former No. 4 overall pick went back to being mostly an afterthought. Watkins is a touchdown-dependent fantasy player in the Rams' scheme, though he has reached the end zone in five of the team's last seven contests.
News: Robert Woods had six receptions for 45 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Impact: After missing the last three games with a shoulder injury, Woods went back to being Jared Goff's favorite target and came through with his fifth touchdown in his last four contests. The offseason addition has remained a model of consistency, having delivered at least five catches and 59 yards in six of his last seven games.
News: Todd Gurley II ran for a season-high 152 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. He added three receptions for 28 yards and one touchdown.
Impact: Gurley piled up 144 rushing yards and three scores in the first half in one of the most dominant performances against Seattle's vaunted defense in recent memory. With six touchdowns in his last two games and an average of 150.3 yards from scrimmage over his past four, the powerful back will be a no-brainer start against the Titans on Christmas Eve.
News: Malcolm Brown ran for 45 yards on 10 carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Impact:
News: Jared Goff was 14 of 21 for 120 yards and threw two touchdown passes Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. He threw one interception, didn't fumble and was sacked two times.
Impact: With the Rams dominating their division rivals from the get-go, Goff finished with season lows in both passing yards and attempts. The 2016 No. 1 overall pick still threw for two touchdowns for a fourth straight week, and he's now accounted for 15 scores against only three interceptions while completing 65 percent of his passes over his last seven games.
News: Woods caught six of seven targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-7 win over the Seahawks.
Impact: Woods was targeted early and often in his return after missing the last three weeks with a shoulder injury. He saw three of Jared Goff's first four passes on the day but would only see one more after the one-yard touchdown catch that put the Rams up 27-0 in the second quarter. The 25-year-old has another favorable matchup Week 16 at Tennessee.
News: Gurley ran 21 times for 152 yards and three touchdowns while reeling in all three passes directed his way for 28 yards and another score in Sunday's 42-7 defeat of the Seahawks.
Impact: Gurley rumbled in from the one-yard line in each of the first two quarters, went virtually untouched on a 57-yard run with less than a minute remaining in the first half, and added his receiving touchdown as the icing on the cake in the third before sitting out the rest of the contest. He had five rushes for nine or more yards on the day. Despite facing another tough rush defense Week 16 at Tennessee, Gurley remains a matchup-proof automatic start for fantasy purposes.
News: Goff completed 14 of 21 pass attempts for 120 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 42-7 trouncing of the Seahawks.
Impact: The Rams took advantage of multiple Seahawks turnovers and subsequent short fields to run up a 34-0 lead at the half. Goff would only attempt five passes in the second half before being relieved by Sean Mannion early in the fourth quarter. Nevertheless, the second-year pro completed two touchdown passes for the fourth consecutive game despite season-low pass-attempt and yardage totals. He'll have a much more promising matchup Week 16 at Tennessee.
News: Barron is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks with a knee injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Impact: Barron walked to the locker room after exiting with the injury in the first quarter. Cory Littleton will continue to see snaps at inside linebacker as long as Barron remains sidelined.
News: Dunbar (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday in Seattle, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Impact: For the second game in a row, head coach Sean McVay will roll with Malcolm Brown as Todd Gurley's top backup, leaving Dunbar as a healthy scratch.
News: Allen (back) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Impact: Allen was listed as doubtful so this isn't surprising. He was likely to be inactive as the team's No. 3 quarterback regardless of his injury. Sean Mannion will again serve as Jared Goff's backup Sunday.
