Los Angeles Rams Roster
Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson has been heavily involved in the offense during the first two preseason contests. Henderson has 12 rushing attempts for 29 yards and seven receptions for 33 yards through two games. He's listed as the third string running back for the Rams going into the season. However, he could play himself into some real game action this season. Todd Gurley is going to be the workhorse, so unless he goes down, Henderson likely won't have much fantasy value.
The Rams have already announced that Gurley wont be suiting up for the preseason games. Theyre giving his knees a break in hopes that all contact will come in meaningful situations. Gurley accounted for 21 touchdowns in 2018 and still has the potential to be a steal in the second-round.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley are among roughly 20 starters who will be left behind for this week's preseason game against the Cowboys in Hawaii. Defensive tackle Aaron Donald and cornerback Marcus Peters are the only starters expected to make the trip, although they will not play on Saturday. Head coach Sean McVay is expected to sit his starters or key reserves in all preseason games. There's really nothing to see here in terms of fantasy, as most teams rest their starters for much, if not all, of the preseason. The Rams are also being extra cautious with Gurley because of his knee issues, and he could be limited with his touches into the regular season.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (knee) said his knee is good as training camp approaches. Gurley sat out offseason workouts due to a knee injury that his trainer confirmed includes an "arthritic component." He could be brought along slowly in training camp and is unlikely to do much in the preseason as the Rams look to lighten his load in 2019. Gurley told NFL Network's Omar Ruiz that he doesn't plan to change his playing style at all. The two-time first-team All-Pro is no longer a high-end RB1 because of concerns about his health and workload going into the 2019 season, but he's still an early-round running back selection as a low-end RB1.
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay is confident that the Rams will give quarterback Jared Goff a contract extension. "Whether it ends up happening this year or next year, there is a zero percent chance this guy's not gonna get an extension he's worthy of," McVay said. "All the narratives out there are wrong. Jared and I couldn't be more connected, and I couldn't be more appreciative of him as our leader. He is so vital and important to us and our success. That extension will get done. It's a matter of when, not if." Goff will make $4.26 million in 2019 and $22.783 million in 2020. He's had growing pains at times but helped lead the Rams to a Super Bowl appearance last year. Consider him a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 going into 2019.
