John Wolford
25-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
While unproven and inexperienced at the NFL level, Wolford projects to open the 2020 campaign as Los Angeles' No. 2 quarterback. The Wake Forest product went undrafted in 2018, but he played well in the now-defunct AFF before signing with the Rams in April 2019. A dual threat in college, Wolford passed for 29 touchdowns and ran in another 10 during his senior year and also posted excellent numbers in the AFF (63.1 completion percentage, 7.8 yards per attempt and a 95.9 passer rating). In four preseason appearances last year, the 24-year-old quarterback completed 25 of 44 pass attempts for 249 yards and three touchdowns. He currently has rookies Bryce Perkins and Josh Love to fend off for the backup role. Read Past Outlooks

Favorite for backup job

August 18, 2020
Wolford has impressed offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell, Jordan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
O'Connell noted his optimism about Wolford's ability to lead the offense, "He's prepared. He's incredibly smart. I've been really happy with how he's progressed fundamentally and he's throwing the ball really well." However, it's impossible to overlook the fact Wolford has never thrown a pass in an NFL regular season game. He would also be a significant downgrade from No. 1 quarterback Jared Goff for the Los Angeles offense. Still, it appears Wolford is the clear favorite to secure the backup job over Josh Love and Bryce Perkins.
