Los Angeles Rams

 

Quarterback

Matthew Stafford (Start)

 

Matthew Stafford is looking for a bounceback game Monday night against the 49ers. The 49ers are one beaten-up secondary and should be in for another smackdown this week. This is a team that made Colt McCoy a serviceable QB last week. That in of itself makes me stoked to have Stafford on my roster and scared to face him in other leagues. Stafford has 250+ yards in every game this year, and 300+ in five games this year, while also accruing multiple touchdowns in all but two games this year. Stafford is averaging 22.5 fantasy points/game and that should continue with this game today. He’s locked and loaded every week, but this week in particular Stafford has all the opportunity to go off and make up for last week’s below-average performance.

 

Running Backs

Darnell Henderson (Start), Sony Michel (Sit)

Darrell Henderson is currently hampered with an ankle injury, but with the game being a Monday night game, it shouldn’t be a problem. Henderson has been tearing up defenses, averaging 4.6 ypc and scoring 7 TDs (5 rushing, 2 receiving) on the year. The Rams RB has averaged 16.5 fantasy points/game and has had multiple 2 TD games. He’s a low-end RB1/strong RB2 in your lineup this week. Sony Michel has been getting more involvement lately in the Rams offense and the only reason I can see him get a flex workload is if the Rams blow out the 49ers. That being said I’ll sit him this week, but if he’s on your waivers go snag him, because he’s a handcuff you want.

 

Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

Cooper Kupp (Start), Robert Woods (Start), Van Jefferson (Flex), Tyler Higbee (Sit)

Cooper Kupp is locked and loaded as the number one wide receiver, don’t take him out. Robert Woods since Week 5 has averaged 9 targets/game and should easily see a good amount of targets this week. Look for Woods to be a good WR3/Flex option in this game. Van Jefferson since DeSean Jackson was released has just about averaged 7 targets/game. Something that’s important about those targets is 6 of them have come in the redzone, so that means he’s getting the opportunity to score a TD each game. That makes him a very solid flex for your fantasy teams. Tyler Higbee is the only Rams offensive player I’d sit, because the 49ers have been good against the tight end position. They have averaged 5.9 fantasy points/game to opposing tight ends. This is why I’m leaving Higbee on my bench if I can, if not he should be a serviceable TE2,

 

San Francisco 49ers

 

Quarterback

Jimmy Garoppolo (Sit)

 

Jimmy Garoppolo looks like he’ll be the starter in this game, and he’ll be facing a tough defense. The Rams have the second most interceptions (12), and have allowed the second fewest touchdowns to opposing QBs. Jimmy G has had a couple 300+ yard games the past two weeks, but this Rams defense is a different animal. I expect Garoppolo to have a chance at garbage time points. Jimmy G should be considered a QB2 substitute at best, definitely a sittable player.

Running Backs

Elijah Mitchell (Start)

Elijah Mitchell feels like a player that needs to be started whenever he’s playing. Mitchell has been on fire getting 100+ yards and a TD in 2 of the past 3 games. He’s also been averaging 5.3 ypc, whenever he’s on the field he can break off a big run. Mitchell is a perennial RB2 in every game he’s in and this game isn’t an exception.

 

Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

Deebo Samuel (Start), Brandon Aiyuk (Start), George Kittle (Start)

Deebo Samuel has averaged 6 receptions/game for the past three weeks. Samuel is dealing with a calf injury, but has accumulated 3 games of 150+ receiving yards this season. The Niners are going to need Samuel to be on top of his game. Samuel should be a solid WR2/3 this week with Niners most likely behind in this one. Brandon Aiyuk came back to life last week and hopefully, this is a sign of things to come. Aiyuk should be a very solid WR2 in this game with the Rams focusing on Deebo. George Kittle is another player on this team who has a good chance to play at a higher level. Kittle’s involvement could go two ways, he could be used more as a blocker or he could be the play-action “go-to guy”. I’m going to bank on him being Jimmy G’s “go-to guy” once again this week. He’ll be a TE1 against the LA Rams.

    You have a typo on Darrell Hendersons name. It says Darnell.
