The second giveaway to Zuerlein’s status will be L.A.’s transaction report. McVay also told reporters the Rams are bringing in kickers Thursday to work out. That would suggest that by sometime on Friday, Los Angeles will potentially sign a kicker. If a signing is made, that bodes poorly for Zuerlein’s status.WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endEven against a strong 49ers defense, Zuerlein is a solid kicker start if he’s active. He’s made all his extra points and knocked in four-of-five kicks from beyond 50 yards this year. He’ll also get to kick in some relatively warm California weather compared to what many kickers will deal with in late December elsewhere. WEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Greg Zuerlein playing Saturday in Week 16?UPDATE 2: Zuerlein is officially ACTIVE.UPDATE 1: It’s believed Zuerlein will be “good to go” and as of Friday night, the Rams had not signed another kicker. There will be two things that can give away Zuerlein’s status one way or the other before we get to Saturday night. The first is if Zuerlein starts kicking at practice. Sean McVay told reporters Wednesday that he’ll wait as long as he can for Zuerlein’s quad to heal before he starts kicking again. SATURDAY DFS: DraftKings main slate lineup | Showdown lineups Greg Zuerlein has the rare kicker injury that could affect fantasy football championships. The man they call ‘Greg the Leg’ and ‘Legatron’ is dealing with a quad injury that’s so far prevented him from actually kicking a football at practice this week. The Rams take on the 49ers on Saturday night in Week 16, and Zuerlein is an every-week starting fantasy kicker when healthy, so this injury could actually affect start ’em, sit ’em decisions and waiver pickups. We’ll have updates below until the official active/inactive report drops about 6:45 p.m. ET Saturday.For injury updates on Will Fuller anad Carlos Hyde, go here; for news on Jameis Winston’s injury, go here; for the latest on Julian Edelman’s availability, click here.
