Leading receiver in Sunday's loss

Atwell caught two of five targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Seahawks.

Analysis: The 48 yards led the Rams on the afternoon, as the team's passing game couldn't get much going with John Wolford under center in place of Matthew Stafford (neck). Atwell has seen his role grow with Cooper Kupp (ankle) and Allen Robinson (foot) also on the shelf, but no Rams receiver will be an appealing fantasy option in Week 14, even against the Raiders.

Two catches in expanded role

Atwell caught both of his targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 26-10 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Despite a relatively pedestrian receiving line for the speedy wideout, the two receptions actually doubled Atwell's total catches on the year. More encouraging for fantasy managers, Atwell was on the field for 28 of the Rams' 54 total snaps on offense, a massive increase over his previous career high of nine snaps in Week 5. With Allen Robinson (foot) out for the season and Cooper Kupp (ankle) likely done for the year as well, Atwell should see plenty of time on the field for the remainder of the 2022 campaign, with Brandon Powell, Jacob Harris and Lance McCutcheon (shoulder) sharing tertiary receiving duty behind starters Van Jefferson and Ben Skowronek.

Logs first career TD

Atwell caught his only target for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Atwell saw the field for the first time since Week 6 and quickly made an impact, burning down the left sideline past Saints safety Chris Harris for an explosive first-quarter touchdown. Atwell's field-stretching ability and game-breaking speed may force the Rams to give the second-year wideout more time on the field, and with the Rams playing the Chiefs in Week 12, Atwell's big play ability may be more necessary than ever in hopes of keeping up with one of the most dynamic offenses in the league.

Healthy scratch Sunday

Atwell (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Atwell hasn't suited up since Week 6, as last year's second-round selection has yet to find a consistent role with the team. He'll work to earn a chance to suit up again in Week 11 against the Saints.

Scant usage Sunday

Atwell rushed once for nine yards in Sunday's 24-10 victory against the Panthers.

Analysis: One game removed from his first career catch, Atwell reverted back to his typical usage, with just two snaps on offense. The speedy second-year wideout made the most of his time on the field, ending the first quarter with a nine-yard rush, but Atwell's limited snap share may be completely erased with the impending return of Van Jefferson (knee) after the Rams return from their bye week.

First career catch Sunday

Atwell caught one of two targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 22-10 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: A week after being a healthy scratch, Atwell made the most of his nine snaps on offense, getting in front of cornerback Trevon Diggs and snagging an over-the-shoulder dime from Matthew Stafford for 54 yards to help set up a Matt Gay field goal. Atwell wouldn't see another target after the big play, but the speedster proved that he has the field-stretching speed that Los Angeles needs with Van Jefferson (knee) on IR. In Week 6, the Rams take on a Carolina squad that just axed head coach Matt Rhule and defensive coordinator Phil Snow, which could provide Atwell with more big play opportunities before the Rams go on bye in Week 7.

First absence of season

Atwell (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game at San Francisco, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Analysis: Atwell was available for the Rams' first three contests of the season, failing to haul in either of his targets on 12 offensive snaps. Now that he's donning street clothes Week 4, the team will turn to Brandon Powell and Lance McCutcheon as the reserve wide receivers behind the top trio of Cooper Kupp, Allen Robinson and Ben Skowronek.

Targeted once in win

Atwell failed to bring in his only target during Sunday's 20-12 win against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Even with Van Jefferson (knee) out for at least the first two months of the regular season after being put on injured reserve, Atwell has failed to earn much of a role on offense, and was only on the field for three offensive snaps Sunday. Atwell will look to earn his first catch of the season in Week 4 against San Francisco.

Two snaps in Week 2

Atwell logged two snaps on offense in Sunday's 31-27 victory against the Falcons.

Analysis: Atwell has seemingly fallen behind Brandon Powell on the depth chart, and the speedy second-year wideout wasn't targeted on either of his two snaps on offense. With Van Jefferson (knee) likely to return to action soon, Atwell has an uphill battle ahead to find playing time barring injuries.
