Player Notes
Jan 5 9:10am ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) wasn't listed on the team's first injury report of Week 18 on Wednesday. The 27-year-old hasn't practiced and missed the last three weeks due to a neck injury. He is trending in the right direction toward suiting up for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. The Wake Forest product will be the backup to Rams starting quarterback Baker Mayfield for Week 18. Wolford has thrown for 390 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions across three games in 2022 while filling in for the injured Matthew Stafford (neck).

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) has been ruled out for a Week 16 matchup against the Denver Broncos. Wolford last suited up in Week 13, playing the first drive before ceding the rest of the game to newcomer Baker Mayfield. With Wolford inactive, Bryce Perkins will serve as the backup to Mayfield on Sunday as the former first-overall pick will start a second consecutive contest for the Rams.

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) has been ruled out for the Week 15 matchup against the Green Bay Packers. This doesn't come as a shock considering Wolford wasn't expected to suit up for this game. The 27-year-old played the first drive during last week's game before handing off the quarterback duties to Baker Mayfield. The expectation is that Mayfield will start Monday Night against the Packers. There's a good chance that Mayfield will be the starter for the rest of the season.

Dec 13 6:30pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) won't suit up for the Week 15 matchup against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Sean McVay. The 27-year-old played the first drive in Week 14 before handing off the quarterback duties to Baker Mayfield. It sounds like the Rams feel comfortable with having Mayfield under center for the rest of the season. He's expected to draw the start against the Packers on Monday Night. Bryce Perkins is expected to be the backup behind Mayfield with Wolford sidelined.

Dec 8 8:00pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) is under center with the starting offense during pre-game drills on Thursday night, so it looks like he'll get the start over Baker Mayfield against the Las Vegas Raiders. Wolford was questionable coming into this one with an injury, but he's active and will at least start the game for the Rams. But this will only be Wolford's seventh NFL game and fourth career start. Even though Mayfield was just claimed off waivers from the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday, he apparently already has a good grasp of the playbook and figures to get into this game if Wolford struggles at all. With Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck) basically done for the year on Injured Reserve, Mayfield could run with the job the rest of the way. Rookie Bryce Perkins is also active and will be the No. 3 on Thursday.

Dec 8 7:10pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) is active for the Week 14 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders. The 27-year-old was questionable coming into this game after being limited during practice this week. It sounds like Wolford is feeling good enough to play, but it's unclear if he'll start. The Rams have also mentioned that Bryce Perkins and newly acquired Baker Mayfield are also active for this game. They haven't announced which quarterback is going to be under center for this contest. Regardless, this isn't an ideal streaming situation for fantasy managers anyway.

Dec 8 12:10pm ET

The Los Angeles Rams want to go through pre-game warmups on Thursday night to see how quarterback John Wolford (neck) is doing before they decide on who will start under center. Wolford got in some limited practices this week, but he's questionable to play against the Las Vegas Raiders. If Wolford isn't healthy enough to play, recently acquired Baker Mayfield would be in line to start after just being claimed off waivers from the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday. Wolford played through his neck injury last week and went 14-for-26 for 178 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in just his third career start. Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck) is on Injured Reserve and is effectively done for the season. Fantasy managers should be looking to avoid the Rams' QB situation in Week 14 altogether.

Dec 7 3:50pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) is listed as questionable to play on Thursday night against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 14. Wolford played through his neck issue in the Week 13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and went 14-for-26 for 178 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in just his third NFL start. The Raiders defense shouldn't scare anyone, but they'll be a popular streaming choice for fantasy managers this week, even if Wolford is active. The Rams claimed Baker Mayfield off waivers on Tuesday, but with such little time to learn the playbook, it's unlikely he'd get the start on Thursday over Bryce Perkins if Wolford is unable to play. Wolford will be a desperation QB2 in superflex leagues if he makes the start.

From RotoBaller

Dec 6 9:20pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) was estimated as a limited participant in his team's walkthrough on Tuesday. Wolford is dealing with a sore neck and is being called day-to-day ahead of his team's Thursday night matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders. If Wolford is unable to start, the Rams could turn to the newly-signed Baker Mayfield, who they picked up off of waivers on Tuesday afternoon. Wolford will not be a recommended fantasy option in Week 14 even if he does feel good enough to suit up.

From RotoBaller

Dec 4 11:20pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford completed 14-of-26 passes for 178 yards and two interceptions in the Rams' 23-27 home loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13. Wolford also took four sacks for 30 yards. The 27-year-old finished with a passer rating of 43.4. In his two starts this season, Wolford has one touchdown and three interceptions. On the plus side, Wolford played the whole game. Rams coach Sean McVay did not put Bryce Perkins in, as he indicated he might. Nonetheless, Wolford is not effective enough to start in fantasy football leagues of any size.

From RotoBaller

Dec 2 6:20pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford faces a below average Seattle Seahawks defense in his third career start in Week 13. The Seahawks are allowing the 14th-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. They are allowing the tenth-most passing yards per game and the tenth-highest completion percentage. Despite the matchup, Wolford should not be started in any fantasy leagues. He has only started two games in his career, and in both of them his passing yardage was held in the low 200's. He has thrown just one touchdown to three interceptions in his career, and his career average per attempt is 5.74 yards. On top of that, the Rams will be missing multiple offensive linemen and their top two wide receivers with injuries. Rams coach Sean McVay even said that Wolford might not play the whole game. Bryce Perkins could have some playing time, too. Neither of the Rams quarterbacks should be started even in superflex leagues.

From RotoBaller

Dec 2 4:10pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has cleared concussion protocol, but he is still dealing with a neck injury and will not start in Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks. Instead, coach Sean McVay says John Wolford will start. Bryce Perkins could get some playing time, too. Wolford started in Week 10 and threw for 212 yards, a touchdown, and an interception against the Arizona Cardinals. Stafford last played in the Rams' Week 11 loss to the New Orleans Saints, but he left the game with a head and neck injury. The Rams offensive line and receivers are banged up, with both top receivers having surgery, and the Rams do not have a realistic chance of making the playoffs, so there is speculation Stafford might be shutdown for good.

From RotoBaller

Dec 2 2:30pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (neck/head) has cleared concussion protocol, but head coach Sean McVay said he won't play against the Seahawks in Week 13. Bryce Perkins started against the Kansas City Chiefs in the absence of John Wolford (neck), but Wolford will start on Sunday. Ultimately, even Stafford was a low-end QB2 in fantasy when healthy, so Wolford is not on the fantasy radar in single-QB leagues. With Cooper Kupp (ankle) and Allen Robinson II (foot) out of action, the upside of the passing game is extremely low.

Nov 24 2:50pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) was listed as a full practice participant on Thursday's estimated report. Wolford was limited in Wednesday's practice. Bryce Perkins took the first-team repetitions on Wednesday with Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck) being ruled out for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. But with Wolford suddenly looking healthy, it remains to be seen if the Rams will go with Perkins or Wolford under center against the Chiefs. Either way, Perkins or Wolford would be desperation low-end QB2 options for fantasy managers in superflex leagues. If Perkins gets the nod, it will be his first career start in the NFL. He's still the best bet to start for LA this weekend.

Nov 22 12:30pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) is "trending in the right direction," head coach Sean McVay told the media. The 27-year-old was inactive against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, meaning third-string quarterback Bryce Perkins took command of the offense when Matthew Stafford (concussion) exited the game. With Stafford's availability very much in doubt for Week 12, we could see Wolford start against the Kansas City Chiefs, assuming he's healthy.

From RotoBaller

Nov 13 11:00pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford was under center for the majority of the team's Week 10 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, in which they fell to 3-6 on the season behind a 27-17 loss. Wolford went 24-for-36 for 212 yards, one touchdown and an interception while taking three sacks. He added three carries on the ground for three yards. Even if Matthew Stafford (concussion) were to miss another week, Wolford is best left on the waiver wire in all leagues.

From RotoBaller

Nov 13 3:10pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (concussion) is officially inactive for Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals. Evidently, he didn't clear protocol in time to play. John Wolford will start in his place, ranking as a QB3 in fantasy football. This divisional clash will feature the battle of the backups as Wolford starts for Los Angeles and Colt McCoy gets the nod for Arizona.

From RotoBaller

Nov 12 10:40pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford is expected to start against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10 as Matthew Stafford remains in concussion protocol. Now 27 years old, Wolford's lone NFL start came back in 2020 when he completed 22 passes for 231 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. He also rushed for 56 yards in that contest. He should be viewed as a QB3 this week and is nothing more than a streamer in superflex or two-quarterback leagues.

Aug 25 11:50pm ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (finger) is questionable for Saturday's preseason matchup against Cincinnati. According to head coach Sean McVay, the 26-year-old ripped the fingernail off his thumb and was having trouble gripping a football. Wolford, who currently owns the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind Matthew Stafford, may not see the field again until the regular season. If that's the case, Bryce Perkins, who's played well this preseason, could be in store for plenty of work throughout the Super Bowl rematch.

Aug 20 6:10am ET

Los Angeles Rams quarterbackJohn Wolfordcompleted 14-of-22 passes for 142 yards after being named the starter in the Rams' 24-20 preseason loss to the Houston Texans. He was sacked five times and faced heavy pressure from a Texans defense that played its starters for the entire first half. Wolford, who has served as the No. 2 quarterback for the past two seasons, did not play during the 2021 preseason. He only attempted four passes in the regular season. Rams coach Sean McVay has not said there is an open competition for the backup QB role. Wolford is competing with Bryce Perkins to be Matthew Stafford's backup.
