DFS Roundtable: Rams Offense

The DFS team discusses the Rams offense and DFS lineups for Week 16

Week 15 looked like a rebound spot against the suspect Eagles secondary and returning home from a sound defeat in Chicago for the Rams offense. However, it was a second straight game looking pedestrian at best for the Rams. Todd Gurley left the game multiple times with a knee injury and Jared Goff has looked like a shell of his in-rhythm and on-time self of late. The Rams are huge road favorites against the hapless Cardinals.

Commonly the highest salary on main slates, are you concerned about Todd Gurley getting rest against a middling-at-best opponent? Is there any fire to the smoke of the Rams passing game struggling in back-to-back games to have pause on by far the largest point spread for Week 16?

For sure. When Gurley came back into last week's game, Sean McVay seemed to scheme him away from contact. The Rams need a win to help secure a first-round bye, but it wouldn't be shocking if they elected to rest Gurley against such an inferior opponent. If he sits, we're looking at John Kelly chalk week.

A little. Jared Goff has one touchdown against seven interceptions over his last three games. Gurley is banged up, and it's been at least a month since Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods were worth playing at their salaries. That said, I'm happy to build a few Rams stacks into my GPP portfolio. The fact we have to answer this question suggests many will hesitate to pull the trigger on LA's offense this week despite the fact they're implied by Vegas to score over 30 points.
