Los Angeles Rams Roster
Los Angeles Rams safety Eric Weddle (knee) underwent a meniscus trim and is expected to recover in weeks, not months. Somehow, it was the 35-year-old's first ever surgery. In his first season with the Rams, Weddle had 108 total tackles (69 solo) and four passes defensed over a full season. He clearly still has some juice left, but he has yet to make up his mind if he will return for another season in 2020. It'll depend on LA's plans for their secondary, as Weddle said he's not interested in being a backup. Weddle is still a productive safety in both pass and run defense, but it remains to be seen if he'll continue his career.
The Los Angeles Rams fired defensive coordinator Wade Phillips on Monday, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The Rams Defense wasn't terrible in 2019, but changes were expected to be made after missing the postseason following their Super Bowl run a year ago. LA allowed 339.6 yards per game (13th in the NFL) and 24.6 points per game (11th) while totaling 50 sacks (fourth) and 13 interceptions (12th). Having shutdown cornerback Jalen Ramsey available for a full season should go a long way in 2020.
Los Angeles Rams safety Eric Weddle is uncertain if he will continue his playing career into the 2020 season. He hasn't made an official decision, but he expects the Rams to move forward with younger safeties John Johnson and rookie Taylor Rapp. Weddle said he will not return in a backup role. The 34-year-old also that he will undergo shoulder and knee surgeries soon after battling injuries this season. He started 16 games in 2019 and finished with 108 tackles and three pass breakups.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley rushed 20 times for 68 yards and caught two balls for 21 yards in an uninspiring season finale. He finished the season with 857 rushing yards, 3.8 yards per carry, 12 rushing touchdowns, 31 receptions for 207 yards and two receiving scores. His 14 total scores carried him through what was a trying year. Is Gurley declining at 25? There are signs, and he'll be a midrange RB2 in drafts next season because of them.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff had a productive season finale with 319 yards passing, three touchdowns and no interceptions. He spread the ball around and was only sacked once in a game he looked like he played carefree in. He finished the up-and-down year with 4,638 yards, 22 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. It's a step back from the 32 scores he threw last season, and he'll have work to do to get back to the elite tier in fantasy. He'll be an upper-middle option next year.
