Drafting the best LA Rams Fantasy Football roster value for 2022
We know that the LA Rams proved that they are the number one team in the NFL. Team, mind you. Unfortunately, the ‘team’ aspect has been lost in the annual fantasy football run that highlights the scheme of NFL fans generating ‘teams’ by adding statistical leaders across a wide spectrum of positions. The LA Rams have historically been greater as a sum of the players, not as individual players. But this year seems… different.
Every year, fantasy football managers are looking for that player they can draft in later rounds yet ascends to the top five or even number one at their respective positions. Last year, that player was LA Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp, who was drafted on average in the fifth or sixth round and ended as the number one overall wide receiver.

Who will that player be from the LA Rams roster this year? Could running back Cam Akers be that guy or what about newly acquired veteran wide receiver Allen Robinson? Maybe tight end Tyler Higbee takes a larger role in the LA Rams offense and becomes that guy.
Last season, I drafted veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford in the seventh round and Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin (acquired in the third round), who I later used to trade straight across for Rams WR Cooper Kupp. This LA Rams QB/WR stack was critical, as I walked away with the league championship. So, you bet I’ll be targeting these two again but it’s likely anyone aiming to grab either player will have to draft Kupp pretty early in most drafts.
Now that the LA Rams roster appears set for the most part, barring any late signings or a shocking trade, let’s take a look at a handful of the LA Rams players who will be on every fantasy football manager’s radar as we approach the start of fantasy football draft season. With that, let’s dive into some of these LA Rams players and where I have them ranked in my fantasy player rankings.
