4. Robert Woods
As soon as the free agency period got underway in the offseason, the Los Angeles Rams wasted no time convincing Robert Woods on board after spending the first part of his career as a member of the Buffalo Bills. Even after the team traded for Sammy Watkins in the preseason, Woods was expected to play a major role this season on the Rams’ offense, and through four games, that’s exactly been the case.
So far, Woods may only have 12 catches, but with 13 targets over the last two games, it’s clear Jared Goff is trying to get his beloved wideout involved with the offense as much as possible. And with the Seattle Seahawks coming to town, there’s a good chance Woods will see a high amount of targets once again since the defense will focus most of their attention on the whereabouts of Sammy Watkins.
Who knows, maybe this will finally be the weekend in which Woods records his first touchdown of the season after failing to find the end zone in four games. Normally, Watkins would seem like the better option, but as previously mentioned, the extra attention the No. 1 wideout will most likely draw should work in the favor of Woods.
