Two touches in limited role

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-18

Skowronek caught his only target for 10 yards and rushed once for 11 yards during Sunday's 30-23 loss to the 49ers.

Despite having a brief injury scare in the first half, Skowronek returned and played a quarter of the Rams' snaps on offense. The veteran's 11-yard rush late in the third quarter was the longest run the Rams had all game, and coach Sean McVay's trust in Skowronek's versatility should keep him as the primary backup to the current starting trio of Puka Nacua, Tutu Atwell and Van Jefferson until Cooper Kupp (hamstring) returns.

Blanked by Seahawks

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Skowronek failed to secure either of his two targets during Sunday's 30-13 victory over Seattle.

The versatile veteran failed to make an impact in his limited time on the field, as he played nearly as many special teams snaps (16) as he did offensive snaps (21). Skowronek's value for the Rams may lie more in gadget plays and special teams than offense now that Puka Nacua and Tutu Atwell have stepped into meaningful roles, making it very difficult to trust the third-year wideout as a fantasy option against an imposing San Francisco defense in Week 2.

Could see additional work

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-06

Skowronek could have an expanded role in the offense while Cooper Kupp (hamstring) misses time, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Atlantic reports.

Skowronek's familiarity with all of the Rams' receiving positions was a key factor in retaining the third-year veteran's services for another year. With two young wideouts in Tutu Atwell and rookie Puka Nacua stepping in behind Van Jefferson, Skowronek could be called upon to spell the duo and function in a variety of roles beyond special teams for coach Sean McVay in Kupp's absence.

May not play much on offense

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-02

Skowronek may get most of his playing time on special teams this season, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.

Skowronek has been with the team for a few years and knows all the receiver position in Sean McVay's offense, but the Rams prefer to keep him as a depth guy and get more speed/playmaking in the starting lineup. Cooper Kupp's lingering hamstring injury offers a path for Skowronek to play more on offense, though even then he might just be the fourth receiver behind Van Jefferson, Tutu Atwell and Puka Nacua.

Secures two grabs in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-20

Skowronek secured both of his targets for 25 yards during Saturday's 34-17 preseason loss to the Raiders.

The veteran was only on the field for 17 snaps on offense, but made a nice 18-yard grab in the second quarter as part of an eight-play drive that led to a Tanner Brown field goal. Skowronek has seemingly fallen down the depth chart, as both Puka Nacua and Tutu Atwell were held out, a sign that the Rams are protecting the duo for significant roles in the regular season. The third-year wideout will be competing with Tyler Johnson, Demarcus Robinson, and Lance McCutcheon for one of the final few wide receiver spots on the Rams' 53-man roster.

Returns with pair of catches

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-13

Skowronek (back) caught two of three targets for seven yards during Saturday's 34-17 preseason loss to the Chargers.

The third-year Rams' wideout suffered a few maladies during the preseason with both back and foot injuries, but was able to play nearly half of the Rams' offensive snaps and showed no signs of rust in snaring a pair of passes in the contest. Skowronek's do-it-all role for the Rams appears to be intact, but with Puka Nacua impressing early and often during both training camp and Saturday's contest (3-32-1 on five targets) and Tutu Atwell also seemingly looking at an expanded role, how often the Rams utilize the versatile trio of receivers immediately behind starters Cooper Kupp and Van Jefferson will be something to keep an eye on through the rest of the preseason.

Back at practice Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-03

Skowronek (back) returned to practice Thursday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Skowronek has been banged up from the offseason program and into training camp, first dealing with a foot issue during mandatory minicamp in June before missing practice Tuesday due to a sore back. It's unclear how much activity he'll be able to handle Thursday, but the Rams may ease him back in with the regular season more than a month away.

Held out of practice Tuesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-01

Skowronek (back) didn't practice Tuesday due to back soreness, Adam Grosbard of The Orange County Register reports.

Skowronek managed a foot injury earlier in camp and is now dealing with a back issue. It's not yet clear how long the new injury will keep him out of practice. Skowronek is competing with a host of others for positioning behind Cooper Kupp (ankle) and Van Jefferson on an unsettled Rams wide receiver depth chart.

Full participant Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-07-28

Skowronek (foot) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice at training camp, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Skowronek and Cooper Kupp (ankle) both ramped up to full speed as the Rams opened training camp after minimal participation in spring practices. After posting 376 receiving yards in 2022, Skowronek will jostle for position on a wide receiver depth chart that's unsettled behind Kupp, with the likes of Van Jefferson, Demarcus Robinson, Tutu Atwell and rookie fifth-round pick Puka Nacua (lower body) also vying for playing time.
