Week 12: vs New Orleans Saints
All WR vs NO
FBG says: Tough matchup. The Rams passing offense had been riding high for a couple weeks in a row before running into a brick wall last week on the road against the Vikings. Jared Goff passed for just 225 yards with no touchdowns as he couldn't get anything going after their first drive of the game. Robert Woods had a decent game with eight receptions from 11 targets for 81 yards, but he injured his shoulder late in the fourth quarter and is now expected to miss at least a couple weeks. Woods is a big loss for the Rams as he has been their top receiver this season and one of the best deep threats in the league. The Rams will look to Sammy Watkins to help fill the void here. Watkins has not been as involved in this offense as many expected this year as he hasn't exceeded three receptions in his past seven games. This week should be a good opportunity for Watkins to step up now that Woods is off the field. Cooper Kupp should also see an uptick in usage and has the best matchup of any Rams receiver this week.
The Saints passing defense finally faltered last week as they coughed up 322 passing yards and three receiving touchdowns to the Redskins last week, allowing over 20 points in a game for just the second time since Week 3. They lost Marshon Lattimore early in this game due to an ankle injury. He tried to return in the third quarter but was unable to put full weight on his ankle after just one play. Lattimore has been one of the top cornerbacks in the league and a big key to why the Saints passing defense ranks fourth using DVOA, giving up the second-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers since Week 3. As mentioned before, Cooper Kupp has a good matchup this week against slot cornerback P.J. Williams. Williams had a rough outing last week and has been the worst Saints cornerbacks. Lattimore's status has yet to be determined for this week, but if he misses time, look for Sammy Watkins to see a huge bump in value.
