Player Outlook
Unless he makes a splash in training camp and makes a real run at the RB2 job in Los Angeles, Rivers can be left on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of Dynasty leagues.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Receives contract tender

    The Rams have extended a contract tender to Rivers, Stu Jackson of the team's official site reports. By offering Rivers, an exclusive rights free agent, a contract tender, he can't negotiate with other teams this offseason. The stage is thus set for the 25-year-old to return the the Rams' backfield in 2024. Rivers carried 32 times for 129 yards and caught all five of his targets for 22 yards in nine games this past season while working behind Kyren Williams. Looking ahead, the 5-foot-9, 195-pounder should continue to maintain a rotational role in Los Angeles' RB corps, which will also include 2023 sixth-rounder Zach Evans, among others.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Adequate in spot start Sunday

    Rivers rushed 13 times for 52 yards and was not targeted as a receiver in Sunday's 21-20 win over the 49ers. Breakout tailback Kyren Williams was rested along with several other key starters for Sunday's inconsequential contest, which afforded Rivers a chance to make a rare start. The stout RB averaged 4.0 yards on his 13 carries, but he finished as his club's second-leading rusher behind quarterback Carson Wentz's 17-56-1 line. Rivers nearly doubled his season rushing total from his previous eight appearances, highlighting just how small his role is when Williams is active -- which should be the case for next Sunday's playoff matchup against the Lions.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Week 18 Waiver Priority List

    If the Rams opt to rest Kyren Williams in Week 18 then look for Rivers and Royce Freeman (19 percent rostered) to get the majority of touches against the 49ers. I'd lean toward Rivers as the lead option, and the Rams have had a running back score at least 11.5 PPR points in all but three games this season, including seven outings in a row. The 49ers also are expected to rest players on defense, and they have allowed a running back to score at least 11.6 PPR points in three games in a row.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Returns from IR

    The Rams activated Rivers (knee) from injured reserve ahead of Thursday's game against the Saints. Rivers was designated for return from IR on Tuesday and was a full participant in two walk-through sessions this week, and though the Rams appear to be comfortable enough with his health to add him back to the 53-man roster, he may be in store for only a minor role Thursday. Before landing on IR on Oct. 18 with a PCL sprain, Rivers had emerged as the top understudy to starting running back Kyren Williams and averaged a respectable 4.4 yards on 13 carries to go with four catches for 18 yards over his six appearances for the Rams. However, given Rivers' lengthy layoff along with the fact that Royce Freeman has been similarly efficient in a reserve role, Rivers could find himself as the No. 3 option on the depth chart moving forward.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Practice window opens

    The Rams designated Rivers (knee) for return from injured reserve Tuesday. Prior to spraining his PCL in Week 6, Rivers showed some flashes in the first six games of the campaign, averaging 4.4 yards on his 13 carries and also hauling in all four targets for 18 yards. The Rams play the Saints on Thursday, so he doesn't have much time to put himself in a position to return to action this week. Having said that, Tuesday's practice report will reveal how much work Rivers was able to handle.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Headed for IR

    The Rams placed Rivers (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Greg Beacham of the Associated Press reports. Rivers will be out for at least four games, and with the Rams on bye Week 10, he won't be eligible to return from IR any earlier than Nov. 26 against the Cardinals. He's dealing with a PCL injury, while fellow running back Kyren Williams has an ankle injury and could still make it back before the team's Week 10 bye. At least for Sunday's game against the Steelers, the Rams appear set to proceed with a backfield of Zach Evans, Royce Freeman and Myles Gaskin.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Expected to miss 4-5 weeks

    Rivers is expected to be sidelined 4-to-5 weeks with a sprained PCL in his knee, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. A trip to injured reserve could be in Rivers' near future. The Rams' No. 2 running back, Rivers has rushed 13 times for 57 scoreless yards this season and has caught all four of his targets for 18 yards. With Rivers and Kyren Williams (ankle) banged up, rookie Zach Evans and veteran Royce Freeman could handle backfield duties Week 7 against the Steelers.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Feared to have sprained PCL

    Rivers is believed to have a PCL sprain that could sideline him for multiple weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Rivers will undergo an MRI to confirm the diagnosis, but the initial prognosis does not bode well for his chances at suiting up in Week 7 versus Pittsburgh. With Kyren Williams (ankle) dealing with an injury of his own, the Rams could be severely short-handed in their backfield for that contest.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Career-high 47 rushing yards

    Rivers rushed nine times for 47 yards and caught both of his targets for 10 yards during Sunday's 29-23 overtime win versus the Colts. One week removed from fellow backfield mate Kyren Williams playing 100 percent of the snaps against the Bengals, a more traditional split of the rushing work -- 73 percent for Williams, 27 percent for Rivers -- was seemingly a boon for both players. Williams enjoyed his first 100-yard rushing game as a pro, while Rivers set career highs in rushing yardage and rushing attempts and tied his career-best snap total. Rivers has shown flashes of brilliance when given opportunities, and he should remain the primary backup to Williams over Royce Freeman and Zach Evans while serving as a valuable insurance policy for Williams' fantasy managers.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Plays just four snaps

    Rivers caught his only target for four yards during Sunday's 30-23 loss to the 49ers. With Cam Akers (coach's decision) a surprise inactive, Rivers was elevated to the primary backup role behind starter Kyren Williams. That role turned out to be basically non-existent, as Williams was used as a true three-down back for all but one of the Rams' drives. Rivers will likely serve as the primary backup to Williams again in a Week 3 tilt against the Bengals barring any sudden changes with Akers' situation.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Sticks with team for now

    Rivers has a spot on the Rams' initial 53-man roster, Stu Jackson of the official team website reports. The Rams kept both Rivers and Zach Evans behind Cam Akers and Kyren Williams. They won't necessarily stick with four RBs throughout the season, so either Rivers or Evans could be sent to the practice squad in the coming days/weeks. Rivers bounced between the practice squad and active roster as an undrafted rookie last year, playing 25 snaps on offense and 36 snaps on special teams in eight games for the Rams.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Efficient with six carries Saturday

    Rivers rushed six times for 32 yards in the Rams' 41-0 preseason loss to the Broncos on Saturday night. Rivers was the first Rams running back to log a touch and generated consistent gains on his six carries. The undrafted second-year pro from Fresno State has potentially done enough to secure a roster spot after amassing 105 rushing yards on 21 carries through three preseason games, as he's certainly outperformed rookie sixth-round pick Zach Evans and veteran Royce Freeman.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Solid in preseason start

    Rivers rushed nine times for 42 yards in the Rams' 34-17 preseason loss to the Raiders on Saturday night. He also returned one kickoff for 18 yards. The undrafted second-year pro was the first Rams running back to log a touch and ended up pacing the team in carries and rushing yards. Rivers outpaced rookie Zach Evans by just one rush attempt, but he was seven ahead of veteran Royce Freeman, who could be his primary competition for a roster spot heading into next Saturday night's preseason finale against the Broncos.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Signed to active roster

    The Rams signed Rivers to their active roster Saturday. Rivers has gone back and forth between the practice squad and the active roster this season, and he's suited up in three games with the Rams, tallying nine carries for 21 yards and five catches for 29 yards. His signing to the active roster comes four days after Los Angeles waived former lead back Darrell Henderson. Rivers will likely work as the Rams' No. 3 ball carrier behind Cam Akers and Kyren Williams on Sunday against Kansas City.

  • Ronnie Rivers: Returns to practice squad

    Rivers reverted to the Rams' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Rivers was elevated from the practice squad for the third game in a row ahead of Sunday's 16-13 loss to Tampa Bay. However, the rookie running back did not record a rush for the first time during this span, as played just four special-teams snaps Week 9. Rivers has totaled nine rushes for 21 yards and five receptions (on five targets) for 29 yards in 2022, and he'll now require a full spot on the active roster in order to suit up for the Rams moving forward this season.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Rejoins active roster

    Rivers was elevated from the Rams' practice squad Saturday. Perhaps more crucially, rookie running back Kyren Williams (ankle) was not activated off injured reserve, meaning Rivers and Darrell Henderson are expected to operate as the top options out of the backfield come Sunday. Head coach Sean McVay didn't rule out the possibility of Cam Akers making his return after a two-game absence due to personal reasons, but even if Akers were to be active, it seems entirely possible the combo of Rivers and Henderson will continue to operate at the top of the depth chart given the former's public spats with the team. Rivers carried the ball eight times for 21 yards and operated as the backfield's top pass catcher (4-15) in last week's loss to the 49ers.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Reverts to practice squad

    Rivers reverted to the Rams' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. With Cam Akers (personal) out and Darrell Henderson dealing with an illness, Rivers was elevated to the active roster and played a sizable role against the 49ers. Rivers was barely out-snapped by Henderson, 24-21, but the former led the team in rushing attempts (eight) and rushing yards (21) while securing all four of his targets for 15 yards. Given the Rams opted to use the undrafted rookie out of Fresno State ahead of Malcolm Brown in Week 8, it seems likely that Rivers will get another elevation in Week 9, regardless of Henderson's and Akers' statuses.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Suiting up vs. San Francisco

    The Rams activated Rivers from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game versus the 49ers. It will be the second game this season Rivers is active for the Rams. After Week 8, the rookie UDFA out of Fresno State will only be eligible for one more elevation from the practice squad before he would need to be signed to the team's 53-man roster in order to play.

  • Ronnie Rivers: Shifts back to practice squad

    Rivers reverted to the Rams' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Rivers was called up on game day for the first time since joining the Rams' practice squad Sept. 15, as running back Cam Akers (personal) was ruled inactive ahead of Sunday's win over Carolina. While the undrafted rookie played just three of the team's 65 offensive snaps, he still recorded one carry for no gain to go along with one catch (on one target) for 14 yards. Rivers could stand to see another elevation from the practice squad if Akers remains out for Los Angeles' next game against San Francisco on Sunday, Oct. 30.

  • Rams' Ronnie Rivers: Plays just three snaps

    Rivers caught his lone target for 14 yards and rushed once for no gain in Sunday's 24-10 win versus the Panthers. Rivers was called on to provide depth for Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown with Cam Akers (personal) out, and while he only saw the field for three snaps on offense in his NFL debut, he was able to net a pair of touches. The catch was particularly a relevant play for the Rams, as the rookie was able to break off a 14-yard gain in the red zone before Matt Gay tapped in a 21-yard field goal to tie the game. The Rams may use the bye week to address the running back position with outside help, but if they choose to stand pat, Rivers may see more work as a depth piece in future weeks.
