Stock Down

ILB’s Alec Ogletree and Mark Barron

Both of the ILB’s were picked on by Carson Wentz, as they should have been. Alec Ogletree was playing with a bum elbow, and it likely led to a weak performance. His running mate in Mark Barron also struggled. They both missed multiple tackles, and allowed two touchdowns in Ogletree’s coverage.

FS John Johnson

John Johnson was picked on yesterday by QB Carson Wentz. Johnson as well as Ogletree were involved in two touchdowns vs Eagles TE Trey Burton, who looked unstoppable. Johnson struggled as he was a step slow to diagnose the Eagles plays, though it shouldn’t diminish his good rookie season.

CB Kayvon Webster

This has nothing to do with performance, but sheer injury. Webster has actually been a very solid CB for the Rams, even reeling down an interception on the first drive of the game. Unfortunately, his season ended with a ruptured achilles (in which he revealed he was playing with a torn labrum all season since the Colts game). Chin up to KWebb.

CB Trumaine Johnson

Tru, performance wise, was actually terrific. He made multiple plays on the ball and had multiple pass deflections on 3rd downs. His performance doesn’t place him here, but instead his two penalties do which directly led to 14-points for the Eagles. The penalty which really hurt the Rams specifically was the taunting call, though everyone has to hope he’s going to learn and move on.

Stock Up

WR Cooper Kupp

Since Robert Woods’ injury, Cooper Kupp has produced two 100-yard performances in three weeks, and continues to be Jared Goff’s go-to-guy. The rookie WR has a chance to break 1,000-yards on the season, and I’m sure we as a collective fan base are rooting for it to happen.

RB Todd Gurley

Todd Gurley (as well as the OL) just managed to demolish the NFL’s best run defense, to the tune of 96-yards and 7.4 YPC, on only 13-carries. Gurley also had another 39-yards receiving, as well as two touchdowns. He continues to build a case for an MVP season, and is a stud in every sense of the word.

CB Nickell Robey-Coleman

NRC was all over the field on Sunday’s game, and routinely made beautiful tackles short of the sticks on 3rd down. He also had a pass deflection on the first drive which led to a Kayvon Webster interception. NRC is going to see a lot more playing time with Webster out for the season, and in small glimpses, he’s shown to be a terrific player.
