  • The Rams have enabled multiple fantasy-relevant receivers during the Sean McVay era. What should we expect from Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp in 2019?

It’s officially time to start fantasy football prep. I’ll be answering the biggest questions heading into the 2019 season; this is part of that series.

Rams head coach Sean McVay’s ability to reinvigorate Jared Goff and Co. stands out as the best one-year turnaround in recent history when it comes to scoring. Overall, the Rams offense averaged an additional 15.9 points per game during their first season with McVay running the show – the highest increase among 59 play-caller changes over the past five seasons.

Part of the reason for the offense’s quick success has been the presence of multiple talented receivers: Goff has had the pleasure of throwing to Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Sammy Watkins (among others) during the past two seasons.

Everyone involved has benefited from McVay’s play-calling wizardry, along with arguably the league’s best offensive line.

The following breakdown will focus on the Rams’ passing game in an effort to establish who to target in 2019 fantasy football drafts.
