Week 7: at Los Angeles Rams

All QB vs LAR

FBG says: Tough matchup. Carson Palmer looked very sharp last week against a porous Buccaneers secondary, completing 81.8% of his passes for 283 yards and three touchdowns--good for a 139.4 passer rating. Palmer did throw one interception, but other than that, he was very impressive as he finally received some decent pass protection by an offensive line that regained left tackle D.J. Humphries. The addition of Adrian Peterson looks to have significantly lifted some pressure from Palmer and the Cardinals passing attack as well, with this being the first time all season that Palmer has attempted fewer than 30 passes, yet he still put up season highs in touchdown passes and completion percentage. Larry Fitzgerald dominated Palmer's attention here with 10 receptions on 11 targets--a whopping 50% of the entire team's target share. Fitzgerald finished with 138 yards and a touchdown, while John Broan and Troy Niklas notched the other two passing touchdowns. Fitzgerald continues to be the clear focus of this passing attack and primary fantasy option from this offense. The Rams 12th ranked passing defense did a solid job defending against a lackluster Blake Bortles last week, allowing 241 passing yards and one touchdown while snagging one interception. The Rams pass rush has been outstanding this season with 20 sacks so far (T-2nd), and they were particularly effective last week as they sacked Bortles five times while forcing two fumbles, both of which Jacksonville happened to recover. Edge rusher Connor Barwin, who had not been having the best of seasons thus far, actually had a solid game against the Jaguars with three tackles for loss as he led the team in tackles (7). The Rams secondary has allowed only one 300-yard passer in six games this season, and they really only have one glaring weak spot in the secondary--that being Trumaine Johnson, who has not had the best of seasons this year. John Brown should be lining up against Johnson, while Larry Fitgerald should draw coverage primarily from Nickell Robey-Coleman, who has been solid out of the slot this season.
