Aaron Donald threatening holdout from Rams into season

Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald is threatening to extend his holdout into the regular season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

What It Means:

One source tells Schefter that Donald could hold out the entire season. It speaks to a negotiating process that's currently going nowhere, and Donald is ready to play hardball. The Rams' season kicks off in 24 days, so they need to get their star defensive tackle back on the field.

Our models project the Rams' defense as the 13th-best fantasy unit for Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts, but they could be an especially strong unit if quarterback Andrew Luck misses the game.
