2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Los Angeles Rams

- Updated: Monday, July 8th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Los Angeles Rams.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Jared Goff540.8351.54407.530.0111.3643.3108.31.73294.83
Outperforming his ADP in each of his first two seasons in Sean McVay's offense, Goff currently sits as fantasy's QB12 in terms of Fantasy Football ADP. Last year, he entered the season with an ADP of QB16 and finished as fantasy's QB7. The year before that, Goff was outside the top-24 fantasy QBs in ADP yet finished as a top-12 quarterback. With such a talented trio of wide receivers, it wouldn't be a surprise if Goff finished as a top-10 fantasy quarterback and outperformed his ADP once again.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Todd Gurley224.71033.611.2444.3420.92.22226.21
Last year, Gurley was the no-brainer No. 1 pick in fantasy drafts and he delivered. Even though he missed two games, no running back scored more fantasy points than Gurley, who has 3,924 scrimmage yards and 40 total touchdowns over the past two seasons combined.

Going into 2019, however, there is concern (perhaps less by Gurley himself) over his knee and specifically what it means to the workload he will get (or not get). While he's my 10th-ranked running back, he's ideally suited to be a high-upside RB2.
Darrell Henderson117526.53.5121.2178.10.9597.22
Les Snead talked about Henderson giving the Rams a "Kamara element." While expecting an Alvin Kamara-type rookie season from Henderson is too lofty of an expectation, the team obviously likes Henderson enough to make him a top-70 pick and make that comparison. Given the uncertainty around Gurley's knee, could Henderson have a couple C.J. Anderson-like games this season?

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Brandin Cooks75.61118.95.2910.560.90.63153.5
Arguably, no team has a better trio of wide receivers than the Rams and each other's presence helps -- and perhaps hurts -- each other in terms of fantasy production. Even if they would individually see a larger share of targets in a different situation, the trio maximizes their respective opportunities within L.A.'s high-octane offense. No longer with Drew Brees (2017) or Tom Brady (2018), Cooks didn't miss a beat in 2019 with Jared Goff as he had 80 catches for a career-high 1,204 yards and five touchdowns in his first season with the Rams.
Robert Woods74.31003.15.214106.40.7146.35
Woods led the Rams in targets (130), receptions (86), receiving yards (1,219) and receiving touchdowns (six) last season. Whether he leads the team in those categories or not again in 2019, Woods, Cooks and Cooper Kupp are all excellent options as a fantasy team's WR2.
Cooper Kupp67.4923.46.7410.5630.21140.34
Off to a great start, Kupp (knee) had 30 catches for 438 yards and five touchdowns in his first five games of the season. He suffered a knee injury the following week, only to eventually return for a couple more weeks before tearing his ACL. Kupp appears to be on track for a Week 1 return from his ACL injury, but only Minnesota's Adam Thielen had more (standard) fantasy points than the second-year wide receiver during the five-week healthy span to start last season. Kupp was PPR's WR4 over that stretch.

KhaDarel Hodge2.825.80.110003.24

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Gerald Everett35.74073.2100059.96
The problem with Everett (or Tyler Higbee) is that the team has four weapons -- Todd Gurley and their trio of wide receivers -- ahead of the tight ends in the team's offensive pecking order. So, at best, Everett will be the team's No. 5 option in most weeks. ESPN's Lindsay Thiry recently wrote that "Everett was a clear standout as a target" for Goff and McVay said "[t]he game is slowing down for him."
Tyler Higbee22.5265.51.6300036.33
