Los Angeles Rams Fantasy Football Projections 2023
Updated: September 6, 2023
Our Fantasy Football Projections will be viewable by both position and team.
Below you will find our 2023 fantasy football projections for the Los Angeles Rams.
Matthew Stafford: There were concerns with Stafford and his elbow heading into the 2022 season, and the veteran quarterback managed to appear in only nine games due to a spinal cord contusion. Stafford threw 10 touchdowns (3.3 TD%, his lowest since 2012) and eight interceptions and averaged 6.9 yards per attempt (lowest since 2018) with an 87.4 passer rating (lowest since 2014). If Stafford can stay healthy in 2023, how close will he be to the 2021 version who led the Rams to the Super Bowl?
Cam Akers: Akers missed nearly all of 2021 with a torn Achilles, but his volume has fluctuated quite a bit when healthy. Much of his 2022 production came during the final six weeks of the season when he finished with 104 carries for 512 yards (4.92 YPC) and six touchdowns and 11 receptions for 99 yards on 12 targets. Only Christian McCaffrey (767) — and wide receiver A.J. Brown — had more YFS from Weeks 13-18 than Akers (611).
Kyren Williams: He may be small (5-9 and 194 pounds) and slow (4.65 40-yard dash) by NFL standards, but Williams profiles as a third-down back who also has a shot to lead the team's running backs in receptions.
Cooper Kupp: Kupp pulled off the rare triple crown of receiving in 2021, finishing with 145 catches for 1,947 yards and 16 touchdowns. While he missed roughly half of his follow-up season, the 2021 NFL Offensive Player of the Year had a better season than maybe most realized. Who led ALL receivers in half-PPR fantasy points scored in 2022 on a per-game basis? Yep, it was Kupp — not Justin Jefferson, or any other receiver. Of course, the problem is his hamstring and his uncertain status following his recent setback.
Van Jefferson: Making his season debut in Week 8 (and playing mostly when Kupp was out), Jefferson had only 24 catches for 369 yards and three touchdowns in nine games last season. Jefferson is an uninspiring WR5 in fantasy, but could move into the WR3 range if/when Kupp misses time.
Tyler Higbee: Higbee set career highs in targets (108, fourth-most among TEs) and receptions (72, fifth) in 2022. While Cooper Kupp missed nearly half of the season, Higbee's per-game numbers were actually better with Kupp (4.9/43 on 7.2 targets) than without Kupp (3.5/29 on 5.4 targets). At a position where volume is inconsistent outside of the elite options, there is value in the consistency of Higbee's volume.
