A quarter of the way through the regular season, and the Los Angeles Rams once again have one of the top-scoring offenses in the league. So no surprise, we’ve got some Rams charting in David Carr’s NFL.com’s offensive player rankings.
Standout: RB Todd Gurley remains atop the rankings after his nonchalant 150+ total yard outing last Thursday against the Minnesota Vikings. The defending OPOY is off to another strong start with 532 yards from scrimmage, though his season-long rush is just 23 yards. We all know how he ripped out the hearts of the 12th man last year...
On the move: QB Jared Goff is finally earning some well-deserved respect, vaulting four spots to crack the top ten at #10. Apparently, you have to throw for 500+ and 6 TDs to make any real noise this season, but Goff’s ascension here is notable as he’s the #5 QB on the list.
Not pictured: How WR Brandin Cooks doesn’t make it onto this list is beyond me. System WR I guess? I’m sure Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill belongs here because of his dangerous return game, but as a WR, it’s not even close as he’s tallied less than 60 yards from scrimmage in each of KC’s last two games.
