While the interest in which uniforms are worn on any given week has been waning this season as the LA Rams struggle to find wins, the interest in who may be suiting up in those uniforms is on the rise. Why?  Simple. These LA Rams have begun to open up their rotations to include younger players, and the success of some of those younger players is fun to watch.

On the offensive side of the football, it looks like young WR Tutu Atwell may get the last laugh after all. He has been all but inactive on the LA Rams offense for 1.5 seasons. But with the absence of WR Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson, the Rams have turned to the young receiver to see what he might offer. Plenty, it seems, as he has caught five of eight in the past three games for 133 yards and a touchdown.

But the defensive side of the football has its own diamond-in-the-rough discovery as well. Longtime down defensive lineman Michael Hoecht has been cross-trained to play on the edge as an outside linebacker, and his two weeks at playing the position have been mind-blowing. He has nine tackles, two quarterback sacks, and a forced fumble in just his first two weeks.

So who will step up this week? That’s a hard call because the Rams are finding production from surprising sources now.  So what uniform will the team be wearing this week? Royal Blue jersey with Sol Yellow pants.

Do the Rams have a chance against the Las Vegas Raiders (5-7) this week? Perhaps, but this Raiders team is hot right now, arriving on the crest of a three-game winning streak. Meanwhile, the Rams are on the crest of a different wave, a six-game losing streak.

The LA Rams may not be playoff bound, but this team is discovering a treasure trove of NFL-worthy young players on their roster, and that could continue on Thursday Night Football. How can you tell which players have the chance to exceed expectations?

Easily. They will be the players in Royal Blue jerseys and Sol Yellow pants.
