LaCanfora: Rams expected to cut Cortland Finnegan


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan is not expected to return to the team next season, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora. 

LaCanfora reports there is no way a team still trying to build and with almost no cap room will pay Finnegan $6 million with a $10 million cap hit, especially at the end of his career. He says if Finnegan is designated a post-June 1 cut, the Rams save $9 million in cap space.

Finnegan appeared in just seven games in 2013 and finished with 27 tackles and one interception.


James Laurinaitis: Rams are a Top 5 defense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) 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."


Alec Ogletree to increase sack total?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) With the Rams hiring Gregg Williams as defensive coordinator, the team likely will blitz more on third down, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. That could mean more "pass-rush sorties" by linebacker Alec Ogletree, the report said.

Ogletree had 1.5 sacks during a fine rookie year in which he recorded 118 tackles, nine passes defensed, six forced fumbles and an interception.


Cortland Finnegan might have to take big pay cut


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) If the Rams want cornerback Cortland Finnegan back in 2014, it will almost certainly be at a significantly reduced price, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Finnegan is two years through a five-year, $50 million contract. He turns 30 next month.

Finnegan allowed three touchdown passes in the first four games this season before suffering a fractured orbital below his left eye. It appears surgery won't be necessary.

“That’s a bone issue,” general manager Les Snead told the paper. “As we all know with bones, only time can heal that. It’s not a major (injury) but because it’s up near your eye we’d better let this thing heal.”

If the Rams don't restructure his contract, Finnegan would count $10 million against the 2014 salary cap. That's way too much for a nickel corner.


Robert Quinn narrowly misses sack title


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Rams defensive end Robert Quinn registered his sixth sack in the final three games Week 17 at Seattle, giving him 19 this season. He finished a half-sack behind Indianapolis' Robert Mathis for the NFL sack title.

Quinn was trying to become the first Ram to win the sack title since Kevin Carter (17) did it in 1999. Quinn heads to the Pro Bowl after a phenomenal season in which he had 57 tackles, seven forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Quinn has virtually doubled his sack total every year, going from five to 10 1/2 to 19 this season.


Rams DST gets four sacks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Rams DST allowed 269 total yards and registered four sacks in the Week 17 loss at Seattle. Defensive end Robert Quinn got one of those sacks, giving him 19 this season to finish a half-sack behind Indianapolis' Robert Quinn for the NFL lead.

St. Louis was unable to force a turnover but the defense played fairly well, allowing 20 points. One Seattle touchdown came on a pick-6.


Kendall Langford ejected


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Rams defensive tackle Kendall Langford was ejected from the game at Seattle after making contact with an official. Langford had a sack and four tackles before drawing the unsportsmanlike conduct flag.

Rams pass rush dominates in Week 16


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Buccaneers offense had a hard time getting going in Week 16, and the Rams pass rush was a big reason why.

The Rams held the Buccaneers to just 170 yards and 13 points in a 23-13 win, and Tampa Bay's offense managed just one field goal after halftime. The Buccaneers turned the ball over twice on lost fumbles, but the biggest story in the game was the way Tampa's offensive line was dominated.

The Rams racked up seven sacks for 47 yards lost total.  Robert Quinn had three of those sacks, and four other players chipped in. The Rams completely dominated the line of scrimmage Sunday, but they will probably have a tougher time of things in Week 17, with the Seahawks on the schedule to close the season. 


T.J. McDonald records first career sack


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams defensive back T.J. McDonald picked up the first sack of his career in Week 16, one of seven in a 23-13 win over the Buccaneers. He added six tackles -- all solo -- in the win. 

James Laurinaitis sets career high in sacks


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis had a solid game Sunday, in a 23-13 Week 16 win over the Buccaneers. Laurinaitis had six tackles -- five solo -- and added 1 1/2 sacks, bringing his total for the season to 3 1/2, giving him a new career-high. 

Chris Long gets to the passer Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams defensive lineman Chris Long snapped a four-game sack-less streak Sunday, in a 23-13 win over the Buccaneers in Week 16. Long had just one tackle, the sack. He now has 7 1/2 with one game left in the season, making it unlikely he will record his third straight double-digit sack season. 

Alec Ogletree forces two fumbles in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree continued to build on his solid rookie campaign in Week 16, in a 23-13 win over the Buccaneers. Ogletree racked up a team-high eight tackles -- five solo -- including a half sack and two forced fumbles.

Robert Quinn picks up franchise record 18th sack


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams defensive lineman Robert Quinn had another huge game in Week 16, in a 23-13 win over the Buccaneers. Quinn racked up three more sacks, bringing his total for the season to 18, a new franchise record. He added six solo tackles.

Rams defensive duo takes the field


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013)
Rams linebacker Will Witherspoon (illness) and defensive back Janoris Jenkins (back) were listed as probable for Week 16 against the Buccaneers, so it comes as no surprise that they are active for Sunday's game.

Rams defensive duo ready to play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Two defensive players landed on the injury report for the Rams in Week 16, but neither is expected to be sidelined by their issues. Despite being limited at times in practice, linebacker Will Witherspoon (illness) and defensive back Janoris Jenkins (back) are both probable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. 

Rams DST a sleeper for Week 16


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/20/2013) The Rams DST has the chance to be a sleeper heading into Week 16 against Tampa Bay. It's a good matchup against the Buccaneers.

The Rams DST just scored 14 Fantasy points against the Saints at home with four sacks, two interceptions and a fumble recovery. It was the seventh time this season they've scored double digits in points, including the fifth time at home.

Tampa Bay has been friendly for opposing DSTs of late with the past four opponents all scoring at least 10 Fantasy points, including the 49ers getting 24 last week. The Bucs have allowed 14 sacks in their past four games with four interceptions over that span.

We consider the Rams DST a sleeper this week, and they are worth starting over established units like the Cardinals and Ravens.


Sack-happy Robert Quinn leads charge in Week 16 victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Rams blossoming defensive end Robert Quinn continued to show Defensive Player of the Year credentials on Sunday. He was a one-man wrecking crew in a surprisingly easy win over 
New Orleans.

Qunn had just five tackles, but two of them were sacks, giving him 15 on the season. His fourth-quarter takedown of Drew Brees was also forced fumble that Quinn recovered himself. He added a TFL and quarterback hit.


Rams DST surprisingly strong play on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) The Rams DST didn't seem like much of a Fantasy play heading into their Sunday game against the explosive Saints. But they turned out to be a decent one.

They did not score a touchdown, but they did record four sacks, hold New Orleans to 16 points, pick off two interceptions and recover a fumble.


Rams release Sunday injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Wideout Tavon Austin (ankle) and guard Harvey Dahl (knee) highlight the injury report produced Sunday by the Rams. Also among the injured on the list is running back Daryl Richardson (thigh).

The healthy scratches are defensive tackle Jermelle Cudjo, tackle Mike Person, defensive back Quinton Pointer and guard Brandon Washington.


Janoris Jenkins ready to roll for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins is set for action Sunday against New Orleans. He has been given the green light despite a back injury that had him deemed questionable.

Rams DST not bad - but not good against explosive Saints


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) There have been some positives achieved by the Rams defense this season. They rank in the top half of the league in points allowed (308), rushing yards given up (1,415), passing touchdowns surrendered (19) and rushing YPC (3.9). They have also been on a turnover tear with 12 in their last five games and rank seventh in sacks with 38, led by Robert Quinn.

But there is one fact that should keep Fantasy owners from putting the Rams DST in their Week 15 lineups. That is, they are hosting the Saints. They are hosting an offense that ranks fifth in the NFL in points scored (343) and passing touchdowns (33) and third in passing yards (3,938). The Rams rank 30th in the NFL in passing yards per attempt (7.1).

It's playoff time and Fantasy owners can't take the chance that Saints quarterback Drew Brees will experience one of his rare off-days. It would be wise to find another option, even if you have to scour the waiver wire for a more favorable matchup.


Rams DST struggles against Arizona


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) The Rams DST had a tough time stopping the Cardinals Week 14.

St. Louis' offense did do them any favors. Kellen Clemens threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown, and the team allowed a safety. Even after taking out those plays, the team still allowed three offensive touchdowns. St. Louis also had a tough time rushing the passer, picking up just one sack. 

They'll look to bounce back Week 15 against the Saints.


Rams DST facing average matchup Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) The Rams DST is looking at an average matchup Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Defenses have been middle-of-the-pack when going up against Arizona, scoring 9.58 Fantasy points per game. Arizona has scored 22.9 points per game, which ranks 18th in the league. They've been far more productive as of late, averaging 25.8 points over their past eight games. A big part of that has been Carson Palmer's development in the offense. Over the past five games he's tossed 11 touchdowns and four interceptions.

The Rams DST has been pretty solid this season. The team allows an average of 23.2 points per game, which ranks 14th in the league. A big reason for their success has been a dominant defensive line. The Rams have 37 sacks on the season, and have forced 23 turnovers this season. They are a decent play if there are no better options on the market. 


James Laurinaitis racks up nine tackles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis made nine tackles, one for loss, in the loss at San Francisco. He had six solo stops.

Up to 91 tackles, Laurinaitis visits Arizona in Week 14.


Alec Ogletree forces fumble in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree enjoyed a dominant performance as he was credited with a forced fumble during Sunday's game against the Chargers in Week 13.

Ogletree stripped Frank Gore in the second half for his fourth forced fumble of the season. He finished the game with a team-high 10 total tackles (seven solo) and one tackle for a loss in a 23-13 defeat.
