  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Gets into end zone Sunday

    Jefferson caught three of seven targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-10 loss to Kansas City.

    There was little production to go around in the Rams offense with Bryce Perkins making his first career NFL start at quarterback in place of Matthew Stafford (neck), but Jefferson led the team in receiving yards and scored the team's only TD. Allen Robinson (foot) has been ruled out for the rest of the season and Cooper Kupp (IR) remains on IR, so Jefferson should be the No. 1 wideout for Los Angeles in Week 13 against the Seahawks, regardless of who is under center.

  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Should be No. 1 wideout for Week 12

    Jefferson is expected to serve as the Rams' No. 1 wideout for Sunday's game against the Chiefs with Cooper Kupp (ankle) on injured reserve and with Allen Robinson (ankle) listed as questionable but not expected to play, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.

    Additionally, starting tight end Tyler Higbee (knee) is listed as questionable, though it's unclear whether he's trending toward playing or sitting out Sunday's contest. Regardless, Jefferson looks like one of the more established receiving options for the Rams, though that doesn't necessarily mean he profiles as a reliable fantasy option this week. He'll likely be working with an unproven third-year quarterback in Bryce Perkins, who is expected to make his first NFL start while top signal-caller Matthew Stafford (neck/concussion protocol) sits for the second time in three games. Though the matchup with the high-octane Chiefs offense could yield more possessions than usual for the Rams offense, Perkins will be working behind one of the NFL's worst offensive lines and a lack of established skill-position talent, which could make it difficult for Los Angeles to keep pace. Jefferson, who has produced a modest 6-68-1 receiving line on 13 targets through four appearances this season, thus might be little more than a risky flex play in the majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Three grabs in Week 11 loss

    Jefferson brought in three of five targets for 41 yards in the Rams' 27-20 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

    Jefferson was just behind co-leaders Allen Robinson and Tyler Higbee in receptions in the Rams' first game without Cooper Kupp (ankle). The speedy third-year wideout should continue to enjoy a progressively elevated role in coming weeks, but the fact Matthew Stafford was forced to re-enter concussion protocol Sunday casts doubt over the entirety of the air attack's potential for a Week 12 road battle against the Chiefs.

  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Needed in larger role

    Jefferson is expected to take on a larger role in the Rams passing attack after top wideout Cooper Kupp (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Stu Jackson of the team's official site reports.

    Passes to Kupp are about the only thing that's worked for the Rams offense this season, with the star receiver averaging 10.9 targets and 90.2 receiving yards per game. Jefferson didn't catch any passes in his first two weeks back in the lineup after missing six games while recovering from minor knee surgery, but he then recorded three receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 loss to Arizona. He'll now have an opportunity to see more snaps alongside Allen Robinson and Ben Skowronek. Jefferson played only 17 snaps (28 percent) last week, which actually was a decrease from the previous two games (53 percent in Week 8, 35 percent in Week 9). If Jefferson struggles this Sunday at New Orleans, the Rams could also give Lance McCutcheon, Brandon Powell or Tutu Atwell more looks.
