St. Louis running back Daryl Richardson said on Twitter that he was not starting in Week 5 (against Jacksonville).Fantasy Spin:With Isaiah Pead a healthy scratch last week, it would appear as if Benny Cunningham might get the start in a favorable matchup against the 32nd-ranked run defense (164.2 ypg). Whichever back gets the call, he could be a viable fantasy option.

Running back Richardson's Tweet shows Rams still searching for starter

ST. LOUIS -- Jeff Fisher had been mostly mum when asked how he plans to spark one of the NFL's most anemic backfields. "We're going to get it fixed. That's all I'm going to tell you. We're going to get it fixed," the St. Louis Rams coach said after his team whimpered its way to 18 rushing yards on 19 attempts in its third-straight loss on Thursday....

Fisher, Rams trying to dig out of 1-3 hole

ST. LOUIS -- Jeff Fisher is upset with the Rams' 1-3 start - and hasn't tried to hide his anger. In his 18th season as an NFL head coach and second with St. Louis, Fisher answered only two questions before walking out of his postgame press conference Thursday night after a 35-11 loss to San Francisco. He spoke for 1 minute, 32 seconds and has shed little light on one of...

Fantasy Football Week 5: The Creeper Report

Eddie Royal or Golden Tate? That was my biggest fantasy football debate this week. Admittedly, I was very slim at flex in Andy’s league. [Then I step through the fog and I creep through the smog Cuz I'm Snoop Doggy (Who?) Doggy (What?) Doggy Dogg.] Royal was ranked higher, but I feel rankers are always stingy with Seattle’s wide receivers. So I threw the question on Twitter...

Rams re-sign LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar

His four-game NFL suspension over linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar has agreed to terms with the Rams and will re-sign with the team today pending a physical.

In addition the status of his September replacement Will Witherspoon is uncertain for Sunday’s game with Jacksonville because...

The St. Louis Rams Are In Trouble

A month ago, excitement was at an all-time high in St. Louis for the St. Louis Rams. Sure they lost three of their top offensive weapons in Steven Jackson, Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson, but with the same offensive coordinator as last year for Sam Bradford, new rookie playmakers on both the offensive & defensive ends of the ball, and momentum built up from a 7-8-1 2012 season...

St. Louis Rams: 2013 Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#28)

Last week: 20 (-8) Record: 1-3 The Rams keep adding talent, but they never seem to get any better. Their retooled offensive line isn’t playing up to expectations. Rodger Saffold is out, while veteran Scott Wells has been awful at center. Chris Williams continues to prove he’s not a starting caliber player, while even Jake Long has not been the franchise left tackle they thought...

Rookie Rivers hopes to build on NFL debut

It was only eight plays and one tackle but they meant the world to Rams’ rookie Gerald Rivers. “It was good to be out there; I was able to get a pressure on my first play’’ the 23-year-old defensive end said of his first NFL action in last week’s loss to the visiting San Francisco 49ers. “Once that first play was over the nervousness went away and being successful on...

Rams Release Former Steelers T Max Starks

We shall see just how bad the Pittsburgh Steelers view their tackle situation over the course of the next few days as the St. Louis Rams announced Tuesday the release of tackle Max Starks. Starks signed with the Rams less than two weeks ago and he played all of eight snaps for them in two games. Starks signed with the San Diego Chargers during the offseason, but was released prior...

Jaguars-Rams Preview

After a pair of ugly defeats, Jeff Fisher insists his staff can get the reeling St. Louis Rams back on track. Perhaps a date with a Jacksonville Jaguars team already looking to the future can provide a good start. The Rams hope to avoid their first four-game losing streak in Fisher's tenure Sunday when they attempt to deal the visiting Jaguars a 10th straight defeat. Following...

Rams vs Jaguars: A Forgettable Face/Off

Let me tell you about a bad football team. A team that consistently struggles to put first half points on the board, and finds itself halfway to a blowout every halftime. A team that has to rip up the playbook every game because they are pathologically unable to establish the run or protect their quarterback. A team that has some talent on defense but continuously loses on fundamentals...

San Francisco strong safety Donte Whitner learned Tuesday he was being fined $21,000 for his hit on St. Louis Rams' wide receiver Chris Givens in the end zone with just under six minutes to play in Thursday's 35-11 49ers victory. Whitner said he would appeal the stiff penalty and has made up T-shirts with (hash)LegalHitner on the front that he will sell to drum up support...
