Good morning, everyone and happy Thursday. We’ve got more football on tonight, so I’m thankful for that.

Just throwing you some quick blurbs from Matthew Berry’s Love/Hate article that he puts out weekly for fantasy football. He mentions a trio of Rams players, so I hope this helps you decided whether or not to stream your favorite players.

On QB Jared Goff - Mixed Review

“Not running out to put him in my lineups considering he struggles with pressure and Buffalo is eighth in pressure rate (30.2%) since the start of 2019, but it’s also unlikely Goff gets completely shut down.”

On RB Darrell Henderson - LOVE

“It’s a brutal matchup, but Darrell Henderson ran well last Sunday and as of this writing (Wednesday night) both Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown missed practice. If even one of them is out for the game, I like Henderson here to provide very viable flex numbers.”

On WR Robert Woods - HATE

“Revenge game! The anger, the passion, the trash talk, it’s ... uh ... (looks around) nonexistent. Yes, Woods used to play for Buffalo, but that feels like a million years ago and no one remembers or cares. Possibly the most “boring” revenge game ever. Woods will be shadowed by Tre’Davious White for much of Sunday, as Mike Clay notes in his always excellent WR/CB matchup column. White has allowed just five receptions all season. With Jared Goff’s struggles when pressured (among qualified QBs, Goff had the third-largest dip in pass TD% when pressured compared to when not pressured) and given how well Buffalo brings pressure, I expect this to be more of a Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee game. Woods is outside my top 20 for the week.”
