Depth options in FF leagues

QB Jared Goff

The LA Rams offense was far too pass-happy in 2019.  While Goff’s arm held up, it was not the type of offense the team is set up to run. Goff is a master at run-pass option plays, but only when the running game is effective. If not, defenses cheat and shorten the time for Goff to find an open receiver. Goff passed more, but his TD production plummeted from 32 TDs to 22 in 2019, all the while his interceptions increased dramatically.

The Rams hired offensive coordinator Kevin O’ Connell to reverse that trend. While he likely won’t get Goff back to 2018 results, a 2017 season of 28 TDs to 7 INTs is certainly doable. That should be good enough to keep Goff among the top ten of most PPR leagues.

RB Todd Gurley

Despite all of the alternate options tossed around for the LA Rams 2020 offense, the main strategy is for the LA Rams to get running Todd Gurley back on track in 2020. That will likely happen, at least to a point where he will flirt with 1000 yards.  The only reason he remains out of the top class of Fantasy Football players is the uncertainty of what they’ll do with Gurley on goal line offenses. Do they pound him into the line? Or does the offense add some fullback/tight end wrinkles to limit the wear and tear on Gurley?

Until we see how the team acts in free agency and in the 2020 NFL Draft, Gurley remains a huge question mark for the team in 2020. He can have a 100-yard game at any time. Still, he hasn’t done so for over a year.

WR Robert Woods

The LA Rams wide receiver Robert Woods is Mr. Dependable, period. In PPR leagues, it’s something you can count on. But where he will catch passes, he doesn’t score often. It can break your heart when Woods finds his way onto your team, only to watch your opponent’s receiver score TDs while your receiver is scoring receptions and yards.

Will that change in 2020? I think so. Woods has averaged just three touchdowns per season to date. But the 2020 offense will feature more of the unexpected. Even a jump back to his career-best six touchdowns is worth including him as a third wide receiver option
