2. Receiving trio continues to dominate
Prior to the 2017 season, the Rams made it a top priority to bring in better weapons for Jared Goff to work with since the ones he had in the seven starts as a rookie the year before were an absolute joke. After investing in the former California star to be their new franchise quarterback, it would have been a complete waste to land Goff during the NFL Draft in 2016 if he didn’t have the proper weapons to work with, which luckily is no longer a case.
The Rams were already in great shape at the receiver position heading into the new 2018 season with Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp making immediate impacts last year, but acquiring Brandin Cooks took the unit to a whole new level. All of a sudden, the Rams would be playing with a trio of receivers that each seemed capable of breaking the 1,000-yard mark in 2018, and at this rate they could all very well do so.
Watching these three combine for 21 catches for 265 yards with three scores (two from Woods, one from Kupp) shows just how dangerous this offense can be when everyone is on the right page with Goff. Some questioned the decision by the Rams to only use three receivers, but i seems to be paying off so far in the best way possible.
