The Los Angeles Rams travel to face the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday in Week 16, and they have a big question about kicker Greg Zuerlein. Greg The Leg was added to the first practice participation report with a right quadricep injury. He was a DNP on Tuesday, and Sean McVay said the team is bringing in kickers as potential replacements.

“We’ll have some guys that have recently – we’ve got a couple names. ‘Bones’ (John Fassel) was on top of that right away when this situation came up,” McVay said. “If we do feel like it’s going to be something that we anticipate maybe he can go, maybe he can’t, we might end up keeping somebody that’s close by overnight, or we might end up having to sign somebody later on in the week if we make the determination that he isn’t able to go. That’s not what we expect, but we will have some guys coming in here Thursday night.”

Fantasy football analysis: Rams K Greg Zuerlein

This will be something to track the rest of the week. If Zuerlein plays he’s a regular start. If he sits, fantasy players will have to consider streaming options. Fortunately, the Rams play on Saturday, and while they’re the last of three games, they’re still ahead of the bulk of the schedule, so you can figure out your options as needed.
