RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Though Gaines started 15 games as a rookie in 2014, he took a backseat to both Trumaine Johnson and Janoris Jenkins in 2015. Jenkins bolted for the Giants during the offseason, though, but it appears Lamarcus Joyner has the edge at replacing him in the starting lineup. If that situation holds, Gaines will be utilized as a depth option in the Rams' secondary in 2016.

2015

Due to an injury to Trumaine Johnson, the likely starter heading into 2014, Gaines took hold of the starting cornerback spot and never let go. The rookie tallied 70 tackles, two picks and two fumble recoveries, but a Lisfranc foot injury will keep him out the entire 2015 season.

2014

Gaines picked off five passes and was part of a ferocious Missouri defense in 2013 before being picked in the sixth round. The defensive backfield was the Rams' weakness in 2013, and St. Louis is hoping Gaines can be one of their cornerbacks of the future.
