V – Rams finding all receivers in the passing game

While the likelihood of a 200-yard game by any receiver on this LA Rams offense is extremely remote, the Rams have found a work-around by simply increasing the number of targetted receivers. When the defense must cover up to nine different players in routes, the Rams are bound to find a mismatch on the field.

Of course, there is a hierarchy of sorts on the offense. The Rams will target Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp most frequently in the game. But beyond that, the Rams can be pretty deceptive as to which receiver gets a look. But this offense passes to nine different receivers in a game

All scoring threats

The LA Rams have eight different receivers who have scored at least one touchdown pass from quarterback Jared Goff. The team also has eight different receivers with at least 100 yards receiving. As quarterbacks are evaluated in the NFL, isn’t one of the criteria how that quarterback elevates the play of his receivers?

The Rams have limited the use of tight ends in their offensive scheme. But when the team needed Goff to find Tyler Higbee a year ago, he found him for 522 yards in the month of December 2019. That was not just Higbee, but Goff as well.  This year, the team seldom calls Higbee’s number, but when they do?

And so it goes.  The Rams simply have a host of weapons to deploy in any given game, but the plays continue to be called by head coach Sean McVay.
