|James Laurinaitis: Rams are a Top 5 defense |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(2/14/14) Now that the Rams have hired defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, the expectations are he will help the unit become a Top 5 defense in 2014, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
At least one player is buying in.
"There are no excuses for this defense not to do that," middle linebacker James Laurinaitis said. "We're fired up ... it is a buy-in program. You're going to see a team working hard every day. There are absolutely no excuses. We need to be a Top 5 defensive team."

|James Laurinaitis performs well before suffering head laceration |

(11/11/13) Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis had a productive game Week 10 at Indianapolis before leaving the game in the fourth quarter with a head laceration. Laurinaitis totaled eight tackles (four solo) and one interception in the 38-8 win.
It was his second interception this season and ninth career pick. Laurinaitis is up to 75 tackles (56 solo) through 10 games. He also has five pass defenses.
|James Laurinaitis remains one of the defensive bright spots for the Rams and Fantasy owners. Laurinaitis had 142 total tackles in 2012 with 117 solo. He now has at least 114 total tackles in all four years of his career, with 142 in each of the past two seasons. Last year, he also added two interceptions, something he had done three times, but he had a career-low 0.5 sacks. Still, he remains a solid No. 1 linebacker in all IDP leagues, and he's worth drafting with a mid-round pick. (Updated 4/26/13) |
