With Jared Cook recently released, Kendricks could take on a bigger role in 2016, ESPN.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kendricks signed a surprisingly lucrative four-year, $18.5 million contract last offseason, proving that the Rams value his work as a blocker. The team will likely be in search of a pass-catching complement via free agency or the draft, but it is quite possible that Cook's release leads to a significant bump in snaps and targets.

Kendricks set career lows in receiving this season, finishing with 25 catches for 245 yards.

Competitive Edge Analysis

His two touchdowns was also his least since his rookie campaign in 2011. His numbers have certainly taken a hit since Jared Cook has come to town, and the quarterback carousel hasn't helped either. As the second tight end on a terrible offense, Kendricks doesn't hold much value going forward.

Kendricks caught all three of his targets for 27 yards in Thursday's 31-23 win over the Buccaneers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kendricks has recorded at least two targets in 11 of his 13 games this season, but with no more than five in any one contest. Even in deep leagues, any scenario involving fantasy relevance would have to include a Jared Cook injury.

Kendricks (concussion) is listed as active Sunday against the Lions, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With concussion symptoms dissipating in a week's time, Kendricks has sidestepped his second DNP of the season. However, aside from a pair of touchdowns spread across the campaign, he's mustered a dour mark of 6.2 YPT on less than three targets per game.

Kendricks (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With his concussion symptoms clearing up quickly, Kendricks is expected to avoid any missed time. He owns a 17-181-2 receiving line on 28 targets through 11 games, with improvement unlikely unless Jared Cooks suffers an injury.

Kendricks (concussion) was listed as a full practice participant Thursday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Rams' schedule includes a day off in the second practice of each week, which typically lands on Thursday, but an estimated report is always released. With Kendricks turning in a full practice, in theory, he almost assuredly received clearance from the concussion protocol, but the preceding will be confirmed upon the release of Friday's injury report.

Kendricks (concussion) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kendricks has already progressed to some activity in practice following the concussion suffered Sunday against the Cardinals. However, he must navigate the protocol for head injuries in order to take the field Sunday against the Lions, which would become more clear with a full showing in practice by week's end.

Kendricks suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kendricks posted multiple receptions in seven of 10 games prior to Sunday's outing, but the tight end wasn't even targeted this time around. With a concussion in tow, his game-day availability will be up in the air during the upcoming week of prep.

Kendricks tallied 17 yards on three catches in a 31-7 loss to the Bengals on Sunday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kendricks has been a nice safety net on occasion for the carousel of quarterbacks for the Rams this season. He gets a couple looks a game, but that's about it.

Kendricks was the lone bright spot in the Rams passing game Sunday in Baltimore, catching 2-of-4 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kendricks led the Rams in receiving yards, and accounted for the lone touchdown thrown by quarterback Case Keenum. It's getting increasingly difficult to trust any Rams offensive player outside of Todd Gurley due to the team's inability to move the ball through the air.
