This morning, the fine folks over at Pro Football Focus got together and ranked the top “offensive supporting casts” in the past decade based on wins above replacement (WAR) and the 2018 LA Rams team claimed the No. 1 spot just ahead of the 2016 Altanta Falcons.

That season, en route to an appearance in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots, the Rams possessed an extremely well-balanced attack that saw seven different players catch multiple touchdowns. They were also the only team in the NFL to boast a 4,500-yard passer, a 1,200-yard rusher (Todd Gurley), and a pair of 1,200-yard receivers (Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks.)

The second-ranked Falcons only had one receiver top 700 yards (Julio Jones - 1,409) while running back Devonta Freeman finished with just under 1,100 yards rushing. If that was all it took for Atlanta’s supporting cast to rank second, then you can get an idea of just how good that 2018 offense really was.
