2021 Fantasy Outlook
Kiser was sort of a by-default starter for the Rams last year, especially after Travin Howard's season-ending injury, but he played the lead inside linebacker role for most of the year and seemed to play it well before a knee injury Week 11 more or less ended his season. With 77 tackles on 558 snaps, it's evident that Kiser was getting to ballcarriers frequently — it would project to roughly 138 tackles over 1,000 snaps. Kiser needs to hold off Howard and Troy Reeder to warrant this ranking. Read Past Outlooks

The Broncos signed Kiser off the Rams' practice squad Wednesday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Kiser started nine games for the Rams last season before suffering a knee injury that forced him to miss the remainder of the year. He totaled 77 tackles and three pass deflections during the 2020 campaign, but he failed to make Los Angeles' initial 53-man roster this year and was signed to the Rams' practice squad. The 26-year-old will likely get an opportunity to contribute to Denver's defense immediately with Josey Jewell (pectoral) out for the season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
A fifth-round selection in the 2018 draft, Kiser never saw the field for a defensive snap during the 2018 season. Then, he suffered a torn pectoral during the preseason last year and didn't play at all in 2019. It's been suggested Kiser was in line to see meaningful playing time last year and potentially even start, but his inexperience and limitations in pass coverage make him a serious question mark entering 2020. Additionally, while the Rams have plenty of holes to fill at the linebacker position, they also have a slew of players who'll compete to do so. Keep fantasy expectations for Kiser in check until he proves himself.
A fifth-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft, Kiser was limited to playing special teams last year and didn't see the field for a defensive snap all season. He's in line to see an uptick in playing time with Mark Barron signing in Pittsburgh during the offseason. Kiser's coverage ability and range have been questioned, so the jury's still out on whether he can succeed as a three-down linebacker. Still, there's potential for him to rack up tackles if he can secure a starting role alongside Cory Littleton.
