Los Angeles Rams

Coach Sean McVay managed to capture the NFC West crown and orchestrated the league’s No. 1 offense in his first year with the team. Instead of re-racking last season’s roster, the Rams added wide receiver Brandin Cooks, cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in a Madden-esque offseason spending spree.

This growing multitude of personalities, combined with Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald’s continued holdout, provides the potential for plenty of unexpected off-the-field drama to complement expected on-field dominance from the NFL’s hottest ticket in Vegas.

Baltimore Ravens

Quarterback Lamar Jackson completed just 4-of-10 passes for 33 yards with a touchdown and interception in the Hall of Fame Game. Afterward, Jackson admitted to being surprised at the speed of an NFL game, which helps explain his pedestrian 8-25-0 rushing line.

Despite the subpar debut, Jackson still possesses a fantasy-friendly skill set that accentuates his rushing upside and ability to throw the deep ball. You don’t want to miss Jackson’s breakout performance whenever it happens.
