The Rams signed Mundt to a one-year deal on Thursday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Mundt, who's spent the past four seasons in Los Angeles primarily serving as a blocking tight end, caught all four of his targets for 53 yards in 2020. It will likely take a few injuries for the 26-year-old to play a larger role in the team's passing plans, but Mundt will aim to continue seeing more playing time in 2021.
Mundt caught all four of his targets for 53 yards during the 2020 regular season. He played just 121 offensive snaps.
Analysis: The fourth-year tight end has been deployed primarily in a blocking role throughout his tenure with the Rams, and that's unlikely to change if he returns to the organization next season. Mundt is a restricted free agent this offseason.
Mundt didn't receive a target in Monday's 27-24 win over the Buccaneers.
Analysis: Mundt achieved fantasy relevance once this year with Tyler Higbee out of the lineup in Week 7, as he caught three passes for 48 yards. When Higbee and Gerald Everett are both active, however, Mundt has averaged just 4.7 snaps on offense per game. His main contributions will be delivered on special teams moving forward.
Mundt caught all three of his targets for 47 yards during Monday's 24-10 win over the Bears. He played 46 of 72 offensive snaps.
Analysis: With Tyler Higbee (hand) out of the lineup, Mundt took advantage of an extended role, and his 34-yard reception in the second quarter was the longest offensive play of the game for the Rams. However, fellow tight end Gerald Everett was targeted a season-high five times, scored a touchdown and will probably remain more involved in the passing game. If Higbee returns in Week 8 against the Dolphins, Mundt will likely revert back to a depth role and receive limited playing time.
Mundt played 11 offensive snaps and caught his only target for five yards during Sunday's 17-9 win over the Giants.
Analysis: This is only the sixth career reception for the fourth-year tight end, so fantasy managers should continue to look elsewhere for production at the position. Mundt has carved out a blocking role for the Rams, but he's still playing sparingly with just 22 offensive snaps through four games.
Mundt will remain with the Rams after the team placed a contract tender on the exclusive rights free agent Tuesday.
Analysis: The 25-year-old was primarily used as a blocker in the offense for the Rams in 2019, hauling in four passes for 26 yards. Through 13 games, he saw 367 total snaps across offense and special teams, and Mundt was only targeted seven times. He'll likely continue his depth tight end role for the Rams in 2020.
Mundt hauled in four of seven targets for 26 scoreless yards over 13 games in 2019.
Analysis: Mundt played more than expected since Gerald Everett battled a knee injury and missed three games, but he was mainly used as a run-blocker. The 25-year-old ran a route on 49.4 percent of his snaps, and with many skilled pass-catchers, it's not surprising that he was targeted sparingly. Mundt will be an exclusive-rights free agent in March.
Mundt caught two of three targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 44-21 loss to the Cowboys.
Analysis: Despite Gerald Everett (knee) sitting out, Mundt played just 11 offensive snaps and was targeted on just three of Jared Goff's 51 passes. The large deficit didn't allow a run-blocker like Mundt much tread, and the 25-year-old could see a further decrease in usage if Everett is back for Sunday's contest against the 49ers.
Mundt (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Mundt's rarely used on offense, and even when he is, it's mainly in a blocking role while Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee garner receiving work. Even with both Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Robert Woods (personal) inactive, Mundt figures to stay out of fantasy relevancy.
Mundt (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Analysis: Mundt appeared on the injury report mid-week with the issue but has put in two limited practices to close it out. He logged his first catch of the season Week 10, and with Gerald Everett (wrist) and Tyler Higbee (knee) also questionable, the 24-year-old could be looking at a few extra snaps Sunday.
Mundt was a limited practice participant Thursday due to a groin injury, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Mundt was listed on the injury report Wednesday, so he appears to have picked up the injury at practice. Gerald Everett (wrist) was also limited and Tyler Higbee (knee) didn't practice, leaving the Rams without any healthy tight ends.
Mundt (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Analysis: Mundt is listed as inactive for the first time this season, leaving Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett as the Rams' only two tight end options during Sunday's game against the Packers. It's unlikely that Mundt's absence will affect Los Angeles' offense in any significant way, considering that he's taken the majority of his snaps on special teams.
