2018 Fantasy Outlook
The two big fish Los Angeles added to its secondary this offseason - 2016 All Pro cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib - will get most of the attention, but Joyner finished the 2017 season as Pro Football Focus' fifth-ranked safety league-wide and is an impactful player in his own right. With that said, Joyner hasn't been overly productive in the tackle column during his career and consequently makes for a risky IDP option ahead of the 2018 campaign. The upside here is that he could have a career year while the Rams' talented defensive line - anchored by reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald and three-time first-team All-Pro Ndamukong Suh - provides opposing quarterbacks little time to make good decisions downfield.

Joyner (Achilles) played seven snaps in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans and recorded an interception.
ANALYSIS
Joyner was dealing with a sore Achilles early in camp that forced him to miss a few practices, but he appears healthy and effective heading into the home stretch of the preseason. Joyner is currently slated as the Rams' starting free safety.

2014
While Joyner started just eight of the 14 games he appeared in last season, he still totaled 66 tackles (50 solo) and five passes defended. The former second-round pick was undersized (5-8) as a cornerback and is expected to start at free safety in 2017. The move should be a nice fit for Joyner to take advantage of his opportunistic instincts. The promotion puts him in line to post a career-best fantasy season, making Joyner an intriguing late-round flier.
Once a second-round pick, Joyner finally began to live up to his pedigree having racked up 72 tackles, six passes defensed and two sacks in 2015. At press time, he appears to have secured the Rams' No. 2 cornerback job and could be a sneaky IDP pick opposite the likes of Trumaine Johnson.
Joyner was originally projected at safety heading into 2014, but due to an injury bug ended up playing more at cornerback. A groin injury cut his season short, as he had amassed 22 tackles in the three games before being injured. He should see a lot of time as the nickel back this season, especially because E.J. Gaines is out for the year.
The Rams are high on Joyner after selecting him in the second round out of Florida State. He is a quick, albeit undersized, defensive back and could compete for playing time at corner and/or safety.
