The Rams rumble into Minnesota in what shapes up to be one of the more highly targeted games of Week 16. This is a smash spot for Matthew Stafford and his receivers against a Minnesota secondary that has been shredded by every Quarterback not named Baker Mayfield. While Cooper Kupp should and absolutely will be one of the highest owned players on the slate, Stafford’s secondary weapons Van Jefferson, Odell Beckham, Jr. and Tyler Higbee are projected to see only single-digit ownership on DraftKings. Sony Michel will likely see lead back work again but with the Rams having played on Tuesday I’d expect a heavier passing attack.
Kirk Cousins is the cover boy because he will have to air it out if the Vikings have any chance to keep pace with the Rams’ aerial attack. Defensively the Rams have been far less stout on the road and have been particularly vulnerable through the air. Opposing Wide Receivers have ambushed the Los Angeles secondary for more than 175 fantasy points in their last four road contests – and that includes a game against the pathetic Texans. Primary Wide Receivers in those matchups have all exceeded 20 fantasy points, boding well for Justin Jefferson even with the possible return of Adam Thielen. This is a difficult matchup for Alexander Mattison and there are better plays on the slate. I will have interest in Tyler Conklin only if Thielen misses again.
THE DFS GEMS
COOPER KUPP, LAR – $9100 on DraftKings. Perhaps a dark horse candidate for NFL MVP because he smashes every week.
MATTHEW STAFFORD, LAR – $6700 on DraftKings. Stafford projects as one of the best QB plays on the slate in this matchup.
KIRK COUSINS, MIN – $6200 on DraftKings. Cousins will need to attempt 30+ passes and projects to be low-owned.
JUSTIN JEFFERSON, MIN – $8100 on DraftKings. The Rams have been generous to opposing Wide Receivers on the road.
