Two Rams made the list in RB Todd Gurley tied for the 12th favorite with 40 to 1 odds and QB Jared Goff down tied for 55th at 300 to 1.

Gurley is the top running back in the odds and the first offensive player who isn’t a QB. The top non-QB overall was Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt at 25 to 1.

Goff is tied as the 32nd QB in the odds at the back with free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick and Carson Wentz. Both Goff and Wentz are yet to be declared starters. The Rams’ other option, Case Keenum, didn’t make the odds. The Eagles’, former Rams franchise QB Sam Bradford, was 150 to 1.

Rams DT Aaron Donald, recently voted the 14th-best player in the NFL by his NFL peers and graded by Pro Football Focus as the best player in the entire NFL in 2015, didn’t make the odds either. The only three defenders who did were Watt and Oakland Raiders DE Khalil Mack and Denver Broncos OLB Von Miller.
