Matthew Stafford529.2357.23863.225.6714.5538.997.31.17244.86
Stetson Bennett49.232341.

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). Stafford is in a better place to start training camp this year, saying that he "feel(s) a lot better physically." If he can stay healthy in 2023, how close will he be to the 2021 version who led the Rams to the Super Bowl and finished as a top-five fantasy quarterback?


Cam Akers234.4996.26.4527.2201.81.2179.3
Kyren Williams51.9212.81.1729.2214.51.472.75
Zach Evans64.8278.61.628.863.10.450.69
Ronnie Rivers1356.60.331.914.70.110.66

Cam Akers: While he missed nearly all of 2021 with a torn Achilles, Akers has gone from workhorse to the coach's doghouse and back to workhorse, when healthy. Much of Akers' 2022 production came in 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.

Kyren Williams: Small (5-9 and 194 pounds) and slow (4.65 40-yard dash) by NFL standards, Williams profiles as a change-of-pace option for Akers who also has a shot to lead the team's running backs in receptions.

Zach Evans: While the former five-star recruit slipped to the sixth round in this year's draft and was behind true freshman Quinshon Judkins on the Ole Miss 2022 depth chart, Evans isn't the worst late-round dart throw in best ball drafts given the recent usage history of Rams running backs.


Cooper Kupp119.71337.28.310.862.10.54252.82
Van Jefferson53.5695.94.4000122.74
Ben Skowronek34.4393.
Tutu Atwell11.9145.118.638.70.5233.45
Demarcus Robinson13.8161.91.100029.69
Puka Nacua10.7130.40.900023.79
Lance McCutcheon112.60.10002.36

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. Kupp is at full strength heading into 2023, and he should be one of the first few receivers off the board.

Van Jefferson: Jefferson is an uninspiring WR5 in fantasy. 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.


Tyler Higbee56.4603.44.3000114.34
Hunter Long998.80.800019.18
Brycen Hopkins7.484.10.600015.71
Davis Allen4.348.40.40009.39

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.
