News: Released on Wednesday by the Rams, rookie LB Jabara Williams was claimed by the Bears on Thursday.
Analysis: Williams will provide depth at linebacker and on special teams for Chicago, but he is not worth adding in Fantasy IDP formats.
News: The Rams have released rookie LB Jabara Williams, who played in two games this season.
Analysis: Williams was a seventh-round draft pick and his release means the Rams did not keep a single draft pick selected after the fourth round. Continue to ignore him in all Fantasy IDP formats.
News: The Rams listed the following players as inactive for Week 1 against the Eagles: TE Michael Hoomanawanui, WR Danario Alexander, WR Austin Pettis, DB Jermaine Hines, DL Robert Quinn, LB Jabara Williams and OL Tony Wragge.
Analysis: None of the players listed were expected to have any Fantasy appeal. Hoomanawanui's absence should allow rookie Lance Kendricks to get a few more reps against the Eagles.
News: The Rams spent their last four picks on defensive players: Ohio State safety Jermale Hines (Round 5), Baylor CB Mikail Baker (Round 7), Stephen F. Austin LB Jabara Williams (Round 7) and Oklahoma safety Jonathan Nelson (Round 7).
Analysis: Hines is one to watch -- he won't have much competiton for the starting job (Craig Dahl is the current starter) and has a nice size-speed combination (6-1, 215 pounds, 4.55 in the 40-yard dash). He's worth a look late in dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts. Everyone else listed above isn't worth owning in Fantasy play.
