Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that the team "absolutely" would like to sign cornerback Marcus Peters to a long-term contract extension. Peters is entering the final year of his deal in 2019. After intercepting 19 passes in his three seasons with the Chiefs, the 26-year-old only had three picks and eight passes defensed in his first full season with the Rams in 2018. Peters was definitely up and down, but he has the talent to bounce back this year in what still remains one of the better overall defenses in the NFL.
Los Angeles Rams cornerback Marcus Peters has been getting roasted by opposing wideouts in recent weeks and just allowed Saints receiver Michael Thomas to go for a franchise-record 211 yards and a touchdown in Week 9. Peters suffered a calf injury in September that could be the culprit, but he's downplaying his injury as a reason why he's been so bad. If I wasnt totally healthy, coach wouldnt put me out there, Peters said. I had a bad couple weeks and Ill step up. I know Im a top corner in this league and I aint been playing like that. Put that on me," Peters said. He hasn't been as good since his injury or the loss of teammate Aqib Talib, going eight straight games without an interception. LA's secondary is a big concern, but it should improve once they get Talib back soon. For now, their defense/special teams is a matchup-based play in fantasy.
Los Angeles Rams cornerback Marcus Peters (calf) suffered a calf injury in Week 3 but didn't miss any games, although he has been beat for big plays in Week 4 and Week 5. Despite that, Peters says he's healthy. "What makes you ask that?" Peters replied to reporters, via the Rams' official website. "No, I feel hella good. Coach wouldn't have let me go out there and play if I didn't feel good. What do you want me to say? I feel 100 percent? Yeah, I do. I feel 100 percent." Peters might not truthfully be 100 percent, but he's been good enough not to miss a game. LA's secondary is a bit weaker without Aqib Talib (ankle) on the other side of the field, but the Rams defense remains strong regardless. Peters will be tasked with slowing Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas in Week 6.
