1. Gurley’s knee could result in more passing from Goff
After all of the concerns surrounding Todd Gurley on offense following two disappointing performances in the NFC Championship and Super Bowl last winter, it was finally revealed the star running back was dealing with arthritis in his knee.
Due to this issue, the Rams have already made it clear they will take a different approach with Gurley in 2019 to make sure he doesn’t overwork his knee to the point where he plays like the end of the postseason.
Unfortunately, this is one of those situations in which Los Angeles doesn’t really know what to expect until Gurley actually steps foot on the field during a meaningful game in September.
But at least if Gurley does struggle at first, Goff will be ready to take advantage of his trio of receivers to work with on offense, including Kupp.
Goff has proven over the last two seasons that playing in Sean McVay‘s offense was the best thing to happen to the former California star, and he’s only going to continue getting better with experience.
Most quarterbacks would do anything just to have one of the three top receivers Goff is fortunate enough to work with, and one can only imagine how excited he’s going to be once one of his favorite targets in Kupp is healthy enough to play again.
