26-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Los Angeles Rams
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The third-year quarterback started Week 17 and in the wild-card round against the Seahawks. Wolford was expected to compete for the starting job with Jared Goff before the Rams dealt the latter to the Lions for Matthew Stafford. Now, Wolford is slated for backup duty. The dual threat signal-caller didn't show much fantasy promise in his limited 2020 action, so he's probably not a priority add outside of two-QB formats if Stafford is forced to miss time.

Wolford (appendix) isn't listed on the Rams' injury report Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
An emergency appendectomy was ordered up on Aug. 6 after Wolford was awakened in discomfort. He proceeded to sit out the entire preseason, even though he got back on the practice field Aug. 23 and directed the second-team offense. With the offseason trade of Jared Goff for Matthew Stafford, there's no question about Wolford's standing in the quarterback room as Stafford's direct backup.

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.
