2021 Fantasy Outlook
The Rams drafted Funk in the seventh round of the 2021 NFL Draft, 233rd overall, a context that had the Maryland product poised to battle for depth slotting in the team's backfield. Alas, Funk's chances to both make the team's 53-man roster, as well as contribute as a rookie, were boosted by the unfortunate Achilles' injury that befell top back Cam Akers in July. Also in the mix for touches in the Rams' post-Akers backfield are Darrell Henderson, Sony Michel and Xavier Jones. Read Past Outlooks

October 19, 2021
Funk (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
This move comes as no surprise, as the running back was ruled out for the remainder of the season Monday. The 23-year-old mostly operated as a special teams option this year, only playing 17 offensive snaps in six contests.
