St. Louis Rams Fantasy Football Update #3

Week one against the Arizona Cardinals was a fantastic week for the St. Louis Ram players in fantasy football. Jared Cook’s 140 yards and two touchdowns was enough to see him as the number one ranked tight end in the league. Also ranking number one in the league was kicker Greg Zuerlein, hitting 4/4 field goals and one extra point. This week against the Atlanta Falcons will definitely be more challenging for the Ram players to dominate in fantasy football. This is my advice to you when approaching week two….

Start

Jared Cook (Tight End) - is Sam Bradford’s favourite weapon. Whenever you have a tight end in your fantasy team who is the quarterbacks number one target, you start them every week. Get use to big numbers consistently with this guy.

Sam Bradford (Quarterback) - has obviously improved in his second year under offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. Last week Bradford scored 20 fantasy points against a stout  Arizona Cardinals defense. This week, he will be versing a weaker secondary (Falcons) that gave up 357 passing yards last week. Bradford will surpass last weeks score of 20, therefore he should be your starter.

Greg Zuerlein (Kicker) - Why would he be dropped after 4/4 field goals last week. The guy’s a monster.

 

Drop

Defense – coughed up 327 passing yards last week, against a rather unestablished offense. If the Rams secondary play like they did against the Cardinals this week against the Falcons, things could get ugly. Plus, you don’t think Steven Jackson will be amped up to play his former team?

Daryl Richardson (Running back) – is a hit or miss this week, as back up running back Isaiah Pead has rejoined the team after a one match suspension. If Richardson is expected to get the workload he got last week, then he no doubt starts in your league. I just don’t like the thought of starting Richardson if he’s going to get 10 less touches than last week.
