At year's end, there is still no word on whether Faulk is going attempt a comeback in 2007.

The operation that Faulk (knee) had earlier this week did not goes as expected, and the veteran may require more surgery, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Faulk was already expected to miss the entire season and the discovery of further damage in his right knee will likely end his career.
Rams coach Scott Linehan confirmed that Faulk, who will have major knee surgery next week, will miss the 2006 season, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

At this point Faulk is not ready to call it a career, but we could very well have seen the last of the former fantasy superstar. For now, Tony Fisher is listed as the #2 back on the Rams' RB depth chart, but Linehan said the team would consider several options for the backup position behind Steven Jackson, including a possible trade. The Saints' Michael Bennett is one name that has already come up.
Faulk will have major reconstructive knee surgery and is expected to miss the entire 2006 season, Rams coach Scott Linehan said Friday, the Associated Press reports.

This could be the end of the line for Faulk, though the veteran back has not discussed retirement just yet. Steven Jackson is the immediate beneficiary of this news -- though he was the unquestioned starter anyway -- while Tony Fisher moves up the depth chart and on to the fantasy radar as the Rams' #2 RB.
ESPN's John Clayton reported that he believes it's highly unlikely that Marshall Faulk (knee problems) will play during the 2006 season.

Clayton also suggested that the Rams were strongly considering placing Faulk on the physically unable to perform list in an effort to force a retirement. If Faulk does not play this coming season then backup Tony Fisher will become a fringe fantasy option unless the club is able to acquire a better #2 back through trade or free agency.
Faulk is still struggling with "significant" knee problems and it's becoming more likely he'll miss a large portion of the season, if not the entire year, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

When asked about his client's knee problems Faulk's agent, Rocky Arceneaux of St. Louis, said "It's when he does a lot of those football things, like cutting ... it just blows up, and I'm talking about just light pounding. His doctor gave him some tests to do, and he wants to see how he responds with the swelling." Knee problems aren't known to miraculously heal overnight and this one seems to be a major problem. Several options are available if Faulk isn't ready to play: He could retire; go on the injured-reserve list, which would keep him sidelined for the season; or be placed on the "physically unable to perform" list, which would make him eligible to return six weeks into the season. Faulk also has hinted at doing television work for year and then attempting a comeback in 2007. With Faulk ailing the fantasy prospects of third string RB Tony Fisher just continue to get better. Considering the free agents left on the market, he is the definite front-runner for the full time backup job behind starter Steven Jackson.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

There was no outlook written for Marshall Faulk.

2006

He'll miss the 2006 season after knee surgery and his career is in doubt.

2005

At 32 and with 2,771 career rushes, 723 receptions and three surgeries on his right knee over the last three seasons, Faulk will return in 2005 as a change-of-pace back, spelling Steven Jackson from time to time, especially on third downs, given Faulk’s route-running and blitz-pickup skills. Faulk is still a good receiver, but he’s not able to make defenders miss the way he used to, and he no longer has the speed to get to the corner consistently. If Jackson gets hurt, Faulk might see a more prominent role, but it’s doubtful that he could carry a full-time load at this point in any event.

2004

There are too many injury-related fantasy zeros in Faulk’s 2003 game logs. Expect more of the same this year, along with an overall decline in effectiveness when he’s “healthy” (as running backs with well over 3,000 career touches can never truly be classified that way). Faulk is capable of big days, but the risks far outweigh those rewards. Despite missing a good chunk of the season, Faulk had an impressive 19 carries inside the 10 with an even better success rate (nine TDs). So the scoring opportunities will likely be there during those weeks his knees aren’t barking. Faulk’s a shadow of his former self as a receiving threat (yards per catch since 1999: 12.0, 10.2, 9.2, 6.7, 6.4). His yards per rush have also consistently declined since 1999, falling below 4.0 last year. The drafting of Steven Jackson by the Rams shows they can read the writing on the wall. Securing Faulk and Jackson will ensure fantasy owners solid production out of one running back spot, as coach Mike Martz is likely to spare Faulk the indignity of splitting carries when he’s healthy.

2003

Don't make the mistake of bidding on a 16-game season from Faulk – he's missed at least two games in each of the last three years. Granted, Faulk has the potential to outscore everyone else, even in a short season. He's still arguably the most dynamic running-receiving threat in the league, and the Rams offensive line figures to be improved this year, as St. Louis has acquired Kyle Turley from the Saints and figures to keep stud tackle Orlando Pace in town. If the Rams can get steady quarterback play most of the year – something they didn't have last season as Kurt Warner struggled mightily – Faulk could make another run at 15-plus touchdowns.
