Will this LA Rams player be the first player taken in most fantasy football drafts
Every fantasy football team owner has a unique and particular strategy to fill the roster. The order of that place in the draft process generally determines whether and which superstar will eventually be on your team. Might any LA Rams player get taken in round one in any fantasy draft anywhere?
There are exotic fantasy leagues that allow for the individual defensive player instead of the generic term, defense/special teams. Defenses usually get selected in the late rounds. Would you draft Aaron Donald or Jalen Ramsey in round one, if your league allowed?
The LA Rams will have a new placekicker for the 2020 season. Greg Zuerlein signed with Dallas in free agency. Anyways, you won’t draft a kicker until the last few rounds to complete your empty roster spots.
There are four position groups left remaining: quarterback, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. Quarterback and wide receivers appear to be the obvious choice due to depth and experience. The running back group will have to fill the void left by Todd Gurley. Tight ends are not necessarily the primary target in the Rams offense.

LA Rams player who could be drafted first in upcoming fantasy football drafts
First, LA Rams running back Cam Akers could be the first Rams player taken. Despite being a rookie, he’ll put up some yards in this offense. The dual-threat running back will get ample opportunities to record run and receiving yards. Don’t be surprised if Malcolm Brown is the goal line back. Also, don’t be alarmed if he does not get the lion’s share of carries in September. The Rams have a conservative style of easing in young players slowly.
Next, wide receiver Cooper Kupp could be a late-round-one pick in multiple owner drafts. Kupp recorded very good numbers in 2019. He caught 94 passes for 1161 yards with 10 touchdowns. He is an upper-tier receiver whos production will likely improve in 2020. The most significant improvement could be scoring.
Another player who could be selected early is Rams’ wide receiver, Robert Woods. He has averaged over 1,000 yards receiving and four touchdowns in three seasons with the LA Rams. For his value to improve in 2020, he will need to generate more scores for the team.
Other players of note
Third, Rams quarterback Jared Goff might be a player selected in round two. It’s difficult to see him going before either Cam Akers or Cooper Kupp. There’s a very good chance that wide receiver Robert Woods gets taken before him.
The Rams do not have a tight end to consider being taken as the first franchise player drafted. There are other backup tight ends to consider before taking a Rams tight end first. Perhaps there is a diehard Tyler Higbee fan selecting him in round one, but that is highly doubtful to happen in 2020.
Remember, thoroughly examine your league’s scoring summary. If it favors running backs, take Akers. If it is a PPR (points per reception) league, you may want to focus upon receivers early. Maximize your point potential with your picks, not your loyalty.
