January 21, 2024
Wolford (illness) is inactive Sunday against the Lions.
ANALYSIS
Wolford came down with the illness Friday when he first popped up on the team's injury report. Although he likely would have been inactive for the divisional-round matchup under any circumstance, he probably would have dressed as an emergency third option. Instead, it'll be just Kyle Trask behind starter Baker Mayfield against Detroit.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
2020
The Rams re-signed Wolford to a one-year deal in April, giving him another season to work as the backup to Matthew Stafford. The undrafted Wake Forest alum has just one start over his first two years in the league and has yet to throw a touchdown in the NFL. Stafford has missed just eight games (all in 2019) due to injury since 2011, meaning Wolford may be hard pressed to find playing time in Year 3 beyond garbage time.
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.
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.
