Houston swoops in for trade

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-09

The Rams have agreed to trade Skowronek, who was slated to be waived Thursday, to the Texans, Dianna Russini of The Athletic reports.

Los Angeles informed Skowronek that he would hit waivers Thursday, but the Texans came calling before the transaction could become official. A 2021 seventh-round pick, Skowronek was mostly limited to special teams in 2023, but he racked up 376 receiving yards on 39 back in 2022, while demonstrating the versatility to line up across multiple formations. Now, Skowronek will face the challenge of competing with the likes of Robert Woods, John Metchie and Noah Brown (shoulder) for a depth role in Houston's crowded wide receiver corps.

Time up with Rams

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-09

Los Angeles waived Skowronek on Thursday, Dianna Russini of The Athletic reports.

Skowronek, a 2021 seventh-round pick, finished his third season with the Rams with a career-low 66 receiving yards across 17 appearances, while mostly contributing on special teams. The soon-to-be 27-year-old is versatile enough to line up in a variety of roles on offense, so it's a bit of a surprise to see him be cut before training camp. He figures to resurface in a depth role elsewhere in the league.

Diminished role in 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-15

Skowronek recorded eight catches for 66 yards and a touchdown and rushed twice for nine yards during the 2023 regular season.

Skowronek's third year on the Rams was mostly spent as a special teams expert, as Puka Nacua, Cooper Kupp and Demarcus Robinson emerged as the leading targets for Matthew Stafford at wideout, with Tutu Atwell and Van Jefferson (before being traded to Atlanta) making up the second tier. Skowronek has one year left on his rookie contract, and will likely continue his role as a gadget player capable of lining up in a variety of roles -- including fullback -- on offense and a trusted special teams performer, albeit two roles that are unlikely to translate to much from a fantasy perspective.

Good to go versus Washington

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-15

Skowronek (ankle/back) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's contest against the Commanders, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Skowronek was able to finish the week as a full participant in Friday's practice and is set to play Sunday. He played 29 of his 34 snaps on special teams in Week 14 against the Ravens and has six catches for 44 yards and a touchdown over 13 games this season.

Limited participant again

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-14

Skowronek (ankle/back) was a limited participant in practice Thursday after being a limited participant in Wednesday's jog-through as well, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

The depth wide receiver appears on track to play Sunday against the Commanders. Skowronek has six catches for 44 yards and a touchdown this season.

Limited for Wednesday's jog-through

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-13

Skowronek (ankle/back) was labeled as limited Wednesday on the Rams' estimated practice report, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Rams head coach Sean McVay said Monday that Skowronek could be held out of the first practice session of the week due to ankle and back issues, so his status as an estimated limited participant Wednesday is a promising sign heading into Week 15. However, the team held a "jog-through" Wednesday, thus Thursday's practice report may provide more insight into the wide receiver's health. Fantasy managers probably aren't keeping much of an eye on Skowronek's status for Sunday against Washington since he's tallied only six catches on 10 targets for 44 yards and one touchdown over 13 games this season.

Could miss practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-11

Head coach Sean McVay told reporters Monday that Skowronek has "ankle and some back issues" that could keep him out of Wednesday's practice, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

Skowronek played 34 snaps on Sunday -- five on offense and 29 on special teams -- and did not record a single snap. His practice participation after Wednesday will provide a better indication as to his availability for Week 15 against the Commanders. Skowronek has six catches on 10 targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in 13 games this season.

Season-high usage in victory

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-04

Skowronek caught two of three targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 36-19 victory against the Browns.

With the Rams receiving corps going through a modicum of injuries over the past few weeks, Skowronek has enjoyed a slight uptick in snaps on offense alongside his usual role on special teams, culminating with a season-high 24 snaps in Sunday's contest. While fantasy relevance is still a reach given the huge target shares demanded by Puka Nacua, Cooper Kupp and Kyren Williams, all three have been nursing injuries throughout the entirety of the season, giving Skowronek, Demarcus Robinson and Austin Trammell some hope of a breakthrough. The Rams offense may find the sledding significantly more difficult in Week 14, however, as the vaunted (and rested) Ravens defense lays in wait.

Will play Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-26

Skowronek (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

Skowronek was a limited participant in practice all week after sustaining a hip pointer injury in Week 11 against the Seahawks. He's contributed mostly on special teams this season and has three catches for 33 yards and a touchdown in 10 games.
