Chargers sign Kellen Clemens


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/13/2014) The Chargers have signed quarterback Kellen Clemens, reports the NFL Network.

Clemens spent last season with the Rams. He is expected to be the No. 2 quarterback for the Chargers behind Philip Rivers and will replace Charlie Whitehurst, who signed with the Titans on Thursday.


Rams looking to add quarterback in draft


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) The Rams are unlikely to draft a quarterback in the first round, but are interested in taking a quarterback somewhere in the draft, general manager Les Snead told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Starter Sam Bradford is coming off a torn ACL, and backup Kellen Clemens is an impending free agent.

Kellen Clemens outpaced expectations


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2014) Rams backup quarterback Kellen Clemens won four of nine starts after Sam Bradford tore his ACL and "proved to be a bit better in his role than many expected," reports ESPN.com. Clemens completed 58.7 percent of his throws for 1,673 yards and eight touchdowns with seven interceptions.

Clemens, a 30-year-old impending free agent, expressed a desire to return to the Rams. The website advocates bringing back Clemens as a steady veteran presence, along with the Rams drafting a quarterback with upside as insurance for Bradford.


Kellen Clemens picked off twice in season finale


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens threw two interceptions in the Week 17 loss at Seattle, including a pick-6 in the first quarter. Clemens finished 21 of 30 for 157 yards and a garbage-time touchdown.

Clemens made nine starts after Sam Bradford got hurt and threw eight touchdowns against seven interceptions. Clemens also lost four fumbles. It was about what you'd expect from a career backup.


Kellen Clemens not worth the trouble in season finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens has only passed for more than 225 yards once this season and things may not get any easier heading into his final game of the season Sunday against the Seahawks in Seattle.

Clemens has only attempted 20 passes in back-to-back games, but in his previous meeting against the Seahawks, he threw two interceptions and was limited to 158 passing yards. He has not thrown an interception over his previous two games but has been held under 200 passing yards in three straight games.

The Seahawks have allowed a league-best 173.8 passing yards per game this season. Opposing quarterbacks have averaged only 9.73 Fantasy points per game this season. Continue to ignore Clemens in all formats heading into the final game of the season.

Kellen Clemens avoids mistakes in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens was asked to do nothing but manage the game in Week 16, so that is what he did in a 23-13 win over the Buccaneers.

Clemens attempted just 20 passes in the game, as the Rams relied heavily on the run. He did complete 16 of those passes for 158 yards, and he was held out of the end zone for the second time in three games. He also turned the ball over once on a fumble. 

Clemens has not done much for the Rams while filling in for Sam Bradford this season. Heading into Week 17 against the Seahawks, Clemens has 1,516 yards, seven touchdowns and six interceptions while appearing in nine games.  


Kellen Clemens has little upside in Week 16


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/20/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens heads into Week 16 against Tampa Bay looking to build off a solid game against New Orleans.

Clemens had 18 Fantasy points against the Saints with 158 passing yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. It was his best game since Week 10 against the Colts when he scored 19 points, and that's about the extent of his upside.

The Rams just don't have the weapons in the passing game for Clemens to post huge stats, and they are clearly a run-first team with Zac Stacy. Even though the Buccaneers have allowed seven quarterbacks to score more than 20 Fantasy points this season, we don't recommend using Clemens even in two-quarterback leagues this week.


Kellen Clemens throws for 158 and two scores in easy win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens didn't have to throw much in the second half Sunday against New Orleans because of what he accomplished in the first half.

What he accomplished was a 24-3 lead thanks to his 31-yard touchdown pass to Cory Harkey four minutes into the game and a 4-yard scoring strike to fellow tight end Lance Kendricks with 2:45 remaining in the first quarter. He completed seven of his first eight passes for 78 yards.

The rest was gravy - and Clemens sopped it up. He finished 14 of 20 for 158 yards, two scores and no interceptions for a fine 126.7 quarterback rating, outplaying Saints superstar Drew Brees along the way. He will try to maintain his momentum next Sunday at home against Tampa Bay.


Kellen Clemens no Fantasy play against Saints


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) A matchup against a team with a prolific offense generally favors the opposing quarterback in Fantasy football. One might think that Rams signal-caller Kellen Clemens would thrive Sunday against New Orleans because he must throw to keep up with Drew Brees.

The numbers, however, dispute that contention. The Saints have been lights-out against the pass. They rank third in yards allowed through the air (2,591) and fifth in passing touchdowns surrendered (15). Opposing teams have generally opted to take advantage of their mediocre run defense and keep Brees off the field.

Clemens doesn't rate as a serviceable Fantasy quarterback in a favorable matchup, let alone the one that awaits him in Week 15. The Rams once again don't boast the receiving weapons to make any quarterback look good. And in six starts this season, he has yet to throw for more than 247 yards and has passed for two touchdowns just once. Clemens is averaging a mere 22 passes a game with five scores and five picks.

Bottom line? Don't even dream of sticking this guy in your Fantasy lineups. It is, after all, the playoffs.


Kellen Clemens awful Week 14 against the Cardinals


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens had a rough game Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Clemens couldn't get anything going through the air, passing for just 181 yards. He completed 16 of 27 passes, and threw two interceptions. Clemens' main target was tight end Jared Cook, who caught three passes for 49 yards. The Cardinals had given up 12 touchdowns to tight ends coming into the game, so Clemens had the right idea. Arizona put the pressure on Clemens, though, sacking him four times. 

Clemens will look to bounce back Week 15 against the Saints.


Kellen Clemens looking at slightly favorable matchup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens is looking at a slightly favorable matchup Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Arizona's defense has been fairly strong overall, but quarterbacks have had some success against them. The team has allowed 22 passing touchdowns in 12 games. Opposing quarterbacks have scored 19.17 Fantasy points per week against the Cardinals defense. The team has been susceptible to letting quarterbacks post strong games. Four quarterbacks have thrown for three touchdowns in a game against the Cardinals this season.

Clemens hasn't really shown that big play ability this season. In the five games he's started, Clemens has only thrown multiple touchdown passes once. He could be saved if he focuses more on Jared Cook. The Cardinals have been the worst team against the tight end this season, so Clemens will need to look his way often. That being the case, it's tough to trust Clemens as a Fantasy starter.


Kellen Clemens not at his best in loss to San Francisco


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens was not at his best as he barely cracked the 200-yard mark during Sunday's loss to the 49ers in Week 13.

Clemens hooked up with Brian Quick for a 3-yard touchdown strike late in the fourth quarter. He was also picked off by Carlos Rogers earlier in the final quarter. He completed 19 of 37 passes for 218 yards with one touchdown and one interception in a 23-13 defeat.

Clemens has passed for 385 yards with two touchdowns and one interception over his last two games. He'll look to get back on track in Week 14 at Arizona.


Kellen Clemens not worth the risk in Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens will have his hands full against a stingy San Francisco defense come Week 13.

Clemens, who has looked sharp at times for the injured Sam Bradford (knee), only completed 10 of 22 passes for 167 and a touchdown against the Bears in Week 12. He has not thrown a pick over his last three games, and has averaged 208.0 yards with a total of four touchdowns over that span. He'll face a San Francisco defense that has allowed only 208.2 passing yards per game this season, which is the fourth fewest in the league.

It would be a desperate move to start Clemens at all this season, let alone this week. With the bye weeks over this season, there are plenty of better matchups at quarterback for Week 13.

Kellen Clemens has 167 passing yards in Week 12


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens completed 10-of-22 passes for 167 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-21 win over the Bears. Clemens also ran three times for -3 yards. 

While the 10 completions may seem low, they're actually an improvement on Clemens' last start, when he completed nine passes against the Colts, in Week 10. This was the second game this season in which Clemens has passed for fewer than 200 yards and the third time in four starts in which he's passed for one or fewer touchdowns. 

Clemens faces the 49ers in Week 13. 


Kellen Clemens has tough Week 12 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/22/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens has shown a steady progression since taking over for the injured Sam Bradford, with an increase in passing yards, touchdowns, and Fantasy points in each of his three games. 

Coming off a Week 11 bye, Clemens gets to face a Bears defense that has allowed 17.2 Fantasy points per game -- the 11th-lowest average in the league. The Bears have been pretty uneven for most of this season, though: in their last six games, they've allowed three quarterbacks to score 23 or more Fantasy points, and three to score 10 or fewer; there was no real middle ground. However, the three quarterbacks with good games were studs (Matthew Stafford, Robert Griffin III, and Drew Brees), while the three with poor games have struggled/are injured this season (Eli Manning, Joe Flacco, and Seneca Wallace). 

Clemens has shown improvement, but lines up more with the Manning/Flacco/Wallace trio than the stud side. He can be benched in most Fantasy formats. 


Kellen Clemens has rookie to thank for first two-TD game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens won for the first time Sunday against the Colts since taking over for the injured Sam Bradford (knee), and he had rookie receiver Tavon Austin to thank for it during a surprising 38-8 upset win. Clemens completed just 9 of 16 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns Week 10.

Most of Clemens' yards came on two touchdown passes to Austin. Clemens' first touchdown pass was a 57-yard pass to Austin in the second quarter. His second touchdown was an 81-yard pass to Austin in the third quarter, but it was pretty much all Austin on the play. After catching a slant pass for about 10-15 yards, Austin turned up the field and outran the defense for an 81-yard touchdown.

Clemens was charged with a fumble in the first half, but it wasn't entirely his fault. Running back Zac Stacy couldn't cleanly take a handoff from Clemens down at the Colts' 5-yard line and put the football on the ground, which was recovered by Indianapolis.

Sunday marked the first time Clemens threw multiple touchdowns in his career. He had thrown one touchdown eight times. The Rams are on a bye Week 11 before returning to action Week 12 vs. Chicago.


Kellen Clemens a Week 10 sleeper?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens is 0-2 since taking over as the starter for the injured Sam Bradford, who is out for the season with a knee injury. Clemens will be looking for his first win Week 10, but it will be a tall order to upset the the AFC South leading Colts (6-2).

Though, from a Fantasy standpoint, this could be a week to consider Kellen Clemens a potential sleeper since quarterbacks have fared well against the Colts lately. Quarterbacks have totaled nine touchdowns to two interceptions in the last four games against the Colts. Also, quarterbacks are averaging 26.5 Fantasy points in the last four games.

Clemens didn't have a bad performance Week 9 vs. Tennessee, passing for 210 yards and one touchdown. Though, he still needs to develop rapport with his receivers and the Rams like to run a balance offense, especially since running back Zac Stacy is starting to emerge. 

If you need a bye-week replacement, then Clemens might be a player to take a one-week flier on Week 10. But continue to temper expectations, despite the decent matchup on paper.


Kellen Clemens tosses a score in losing effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens took care of the ball in Week 9 against the Titans, but didn't do enough to win in a 28-21 loss Sunday.

Clemens completed 20 of 35 passes for 210 yards and threw for his first touchdown of the season, on a 10-yard pass to Jared Cook midway through the fourth quarter. He added one rush for 16 yards.

Clemens was decent in Week 9, but it wasn't enough to win. Week 10 might look pretty similar, when the Rams head to Indianapolis to face the Colts. 


Kellen Clemens plays through shoulder issue


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens (shoulder) was able to get through the week in practice, and is active for Week 9 against the Titans. Clemens had no limitations throughout the week, and should not be bothered Sunday, as he makes his second start of the season. 

Kellen Clemens expected to play


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens is expected to play Week 9 against the Titans.

Clemens has been limited by a shoulder injury, but was able to participate in full Thursday and Friday. He should start again with Sam Bradford out.


Shoulder not a problem for Kellen Clemens


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens was a full participant in practice Thursday, as his shoulder injury does not appear to be an issue for Week 9 against the Titans.

Kellen Clemens likely to struggle again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens' first start of the season came against a tough Seahawks defense, and it might not get any easier in his second start. The Rams take on the Titans in Week 9 Sunday.

The Titans have are not quite as stingy as the Seahawks against quarterbacks, but they have still been one of the best passing defenses in the league. Opposing quarterbacks are averaging just 14.7 Fantasy points per game against Tennessee, and the Titans have not allowed a passing touchdown over the last three games.

Clemens should have an easier time of things in Week 9, but he is only a factor for Fantasy purposes as an injury or bye-week replacement. 


Kellen Clemens limited with injury to throwing shoulder


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens was limited in Wednesday's practice with an injury to his right (throwing) shoulder, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. St. Louis is preparing to host Tennessee on Sunday.

Jeff Fisher gives Kellen Clemens a vote of confidence


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said he's comfortable starting quarterback Kellen Clemens moving forward despite Clemens' inability to lead a touchdown drive Monday vs. Seattle. Normal starter Sam Bradford is out for the season with a torn ACL.

“Yeah, we’re good," Fisher said at his Tuesday press conference. "He’s a little sore. I don’t know if he’ll do much tomorrow, but he’ll be fine. I think he only stands to improve."


Kellen Clemens erratic in first start


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) Rams backup quarterback Kellen Clemens did not look overmatched against the Seahawks, but his erratic arm came back to haunt him and the team. Making his first 2013 start for the injured Sam Bradford, Clemens completed 15 of 31 throws for 158 yards with two interceptions.

Both picks came in the first half. Linebacker Bruce Irvin intercepted a wild throw to tight end Jared Cook, and corner Richard Sherman easily picked off an overthrow of receiver Austin Pettis. Clemens was 6 of 13 for 40 yards at the break.

With St. Louis trailing 14-9 late, Clemens led the team 96 yards to the Seattle 1, hitting Chris Givens for 21 yards and Lance Kendricks for 18 yards. But on 4th-and-goal from the 1 -- the game's final play -- Clemens felt the blitz and threw way over the head of receiver Brian Quick.

Clemens will go for his first touchdown pass Week 9 against Tennessee.
