2020 NFL Power Rankings: Los Angeles Rams

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Los Angeles Rams rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Week 1 NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a Week 1 roundup for the Rams in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 20

Sean McVay took a big swing this offseason, replacing legendary defensive coordinator Wade Phillips with up-and-comer Brandon Staley. If that move pays off and Staley can find a way to build a top-10 defense around Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey, the Rams can get back to the postseason. If that move backfires, their defense could really struggle. Offensively, it's all about the offensive line performing better than it did last season and Jared Goff cutting down on negative plays. If things go well, running back Cam Akers could be a sleeper for Offensive Rookie of the Year.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 21

Coach Sean McVay changed up his coordinators this year, which could be a way to get this team back on track. I just think they have some major holes on defense, mainly edge rush.

Los Angeles Rams Fantasy Football Projections

Not only do we have fantasy football projections by positions, we have team-by-team fantasy projections as well.

Here are our projections for the Los Angeles Rams running backs for the 2020 NFL season:

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Cam Akers169.8730.15.5231.1251.90.93136.9
With Todd Gurley gone (and now in Atlanta), Akers appears to be the Rams back to own even though Sean McVay has talked up the hot-hand committee approach that the 49ers used last season. Despite running behind a terrible offensive line at Florida State, the former five-star recruit became just the third back in school history to reach the 1,000-yard mark in back-to-back seasons and 3.9 yards of his 4.9 YPC came after contact, per PFF.
Darrell Henderson101.3415.32.5325.3212.50.7682.52
As a rookie, Henderson had 43 touches -- 39 carries and four receptions -- in 13 games and 25 (58.1%) of those touches came in back-to-back games in October. Even though Todd Gurley is now in Atlanta, the Rams used a second-round pick on a (more) talented back (Cam Akers), which implies the coaching staff may not give Henderson the significant boost in workload that some may have hoped and/or expected when Gurley was released.
Malcolm Brown61.4242.52.468.4680.2947.55
Last year, most assumed that Henderson (43 touches) would out-touch Brown (71), but that wasn't the case. Is the fantasy community underestimating Brown's role in the backfield once again?
