Los Angeles Rams 2019 Fantasy Football Projections

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.



Jared Goff573.6372.84732.232.1212.6241.8104.51.25310.48
Outperforming his ADP in each of his first two seasons in Sean McVay's offense, Goff currently sits as fantasy's QB11 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.
Blake Bortles5.83.643.

Todd Gurley247.4113812.3745.5432.32.28244.93
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).
Darrell Henderson92.9418.12.7922.3187.3183.28
Les Snead talked about Henderson giving the Rams a "Kamara element." While expecting an Alvin Kamara-type rookie season from Henderson is perhaps too lofty of an expectation, the team obviously likes Henderson a lot 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 down the stretch?
Malcolm Brown39.5173.80.994.638.60.2828.86
John Kelly5.819.70.09190.043.65

Brandin Cooks82.312185.7610.560.90.63166.23
Arguably, no team has a better trio of wide receivers than the Rams and their 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 opportunities in 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 Woods82.91119.25.813.9105.60.7161.48
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 Kupp65890.56.510.5630.21135.61
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 the second-year wide receiver had the second-most fantasy points behind Minnesota's Adam Thielen over the five-week healthy span last season.
Josh Reynolds20.6271.92.471.25.40.0142.61
KhaDarel Hodge1.110.10.040001.25
JoJo Natson0.54.60.020000.58

Gerald Everett37.4426.43.3700062.86
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 is 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 Higbee24.6290.31.7800039.71
