Rams Fantasy Football Stars
Puka Nacua (31 Fantasy Points)
Puka Nacua had a standout game as he earned a whopping 31 fantasy points. The wide receiver hauled in 163 receiving yards and found the end zone, making him a top fantasy performer for the week, only behind David Montgomery.
Kyren Williams (28 Fantasy Points)
Rookie running back Kyren Williams also had a fantastic outing, accumulating 28 fantasy points. Williams contributed significantly with 103 rushing yards and two crucial touchdowns, showcasing his versatility and value to fantasy owners. This was also his first game in his career with over 100 rushing yards showing that McVay has committed to the run game with a lead back. Williams finished the day tied for 3rd in fantasy points among all running backs.
Matthew Stafford (17 Fantasy Points)
Despite an injury concern, quarterback Matthew Stafford managed to score 17 fantasy points. Stafford threw for 319 yards and connected for one touchdown that came in overtime. Expect around 15 points a week from him moving forward.
Brett Maher (14 Fantasy Points)
Kicker Brett Maher accumulated 14 fantasy points by converting all his extra-point attempts, but also missed two field goals. But, if the Rams continue to fail to convert on drives, he will remain a valuable asset.
Tyler Higbee (11 Fantasy Points)
Tight-end Tyler Higbee was another solid contributor with 11 fantasy points. Higbee made several key receptions, amassing 64 receiving yards. He’s currently TE9 on the year proving his worth after his contract extension.
Tutu Atwell (7 Fantasy Points)
Wide receiver Tutu Atwell made his presence felt with 7 fantasy points. He wasn’t as involved as in previous weeks but still had a solid outing.
Los Angeles Rams Defense (5 Fantasy Points)
The Rams’ defense earned 5 fantasy points, not ideal for what was basically a shootout, they’re not a good fantasy defense and are currently ranked 29th on the year on Sleeper.
Van Jefferson (5 Fantasy Points)
Wide receiver Van Jefferson, with 5 fantasy points, had another disappointing performance. With Nacua taking all of the spotlight, there’s been little work for him this year.
