Reason 3: Rams receiver room boasts two NFL record setters

The LA Rams offense has never been without dangerous weapons, particularly in the receiver room. But while I have admired the team's ability to recruit, sign, and draft incredibly talented receivers to this team, I cannot feel that this year's receiver room is the best since the team hired HC Sean McVay.

We know that the last time that veteran wide receiver Cooper Kupp was healthy and played all 17 games, he set the single-season record for receivers in Rams history, and flirted with the All-Time NFL Single-Season Receiver Record, falling just shy of the record set by former Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson. That occured in 2021. Two years later, rookie wide receiver Puka Nacua roared into the NFL by setting the All-Time Rookie Receiver Record.

Now both Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua are back, are healthy, and are taking aim at NFL defenses for the 2024 NFL season. Best of all, they are not alone. The team will pair the duo up with tough veteran WR Demarcus Robinson, with speedy WR Tuta Atwell, and tough-minded rookie WR Jordan Whittington. Of course, the team has options in the tight end room as well.

Durability remains a concern for the team, and if one or more receivers falls to an injury this year for any length of time, the offense will suffer as a result. But the team has a complementary overlap of receiver skill sets as well as enough variety to ensure this offense can threaten defenses with an aerial assault. This could prove to be Matthew Stafford's career best season.
