Jalen Ramsey has Rams teammates ‘excited,’ though status uncertain for Sunday

THOUSAND OAKS — As anticipation builds for Jalen Ramsey’s debut with the Rams, the drama has turned into a mystery. Rams coach Sean McVay said Friday the Pro Bowl cornerback’s arrival in a trade this week added energy to the team and “guys are excited about playing with him.” But it remained unclear if that will happen Sunday when the Rams face the Falcons in Atlanta. “We’re going to see, my man,” Ramsey said after his second practice with the Rams. He added with a smile: “That’s what I said yes...

Fantasy Football Start And Sits Week 7: Start Jared Goff Against Falcons?

(CBSLA/CBS Local) — The Los Angeles Rams have struggled of late, losing their last three games. Jared Goff, however, aside from a stinker against a strong San Francisco 49ers defense, has been mostly okay. In fact, he’s been better than okay, throwing for 395 yards and a touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks and 517 yards and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He could put up similar — or better — numbers this week with his receiving core healthy. The Rams head to Atlanta to face ...

Week 7 fantasy football QB rankings: Will Jared Goff bounce back vs. Falcons?

Jared Goff's home/road splits are no surprise, but his outing at the Los Angeles Coliseum last week has many people hitting the panic button. Goff could pretty much do nothing against the San Francisco 49ers, and many are taking it as a microcosm of the Rams' up-and-down offense this season. Week 7 Fantasy Rankings: QBs | RBs | WRs | TEs | FLEX | DST | Kickers] But a respite could be waiting in the wings in the form of the Atlanta Falcons defense.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons mounted a massive second-half comeback, rallying from 17 down to pull within a point of tying Arizona.

Rams passing more, but less effectively, as they face tough 49ers defense

THOUSAND OAKS — The Rams’ passing game brings to mind the old joke about the math-challenged discount store owner who loses money on every sale but says he makes it up in volume. By most measures of passing-attack effectiveness, the Rams are below the NFL average this season, a lot less efficient than they were last year. Yet they keep throwing, nearly 45 pass attempts a game, selling more of an unprofitable product. Jared Goff sounds as if he wishes he could keep flinging the ball around the fi...

Daddy’s Hangout 2019 Week 6 NFL Predictions

What an embarrassing Week 5 of predictions on my end. My record was 3-6, which thanks to the Niners spanking the Browns I’ll go into Week 6 with a winning record. My overall record dips to 21-20 and in the process my winning percentage goes from 56.3 to 51.2%. In Week 5, we saw Deshaun Watson and Christian McCaffrey emerge as MVP candidates. My Thursday night woes continued as the Seahawks upended the Rams. The Buffalo Bills continues to make their case for best defense with their win over in ...

Deshaun Watson tells story of Asante Samuel giving him $1,000 for getting his mouthpiece

It apparently pays to be a ball boy in the NFL. When Deshaun Watson was young, he spent time as a ball boy for the Atlanta Falcons, and he'd do do various odd jobs when the players needed something. During his time being around the Falcons, he became a star quarterback at Gainesville High School in Georgia.
