Divisional Round – Rams at Packers3 min read
We have completed the Wild Card Round of the 2020 Fantasy Football & NFL postseason! Which means we are onto the Divisional Round of the playoffs! With most season long fantasy football leagues complete, there are still daily and playoff leagues that are happening to feed our fantasy football appetite.
The first game of the Divisional Round is the Los Angeles Rams at the Green Bay Packers. Remember, my favorite players usually are on teams that have a Top Offense that can produce lots of Targets and Touchdowns! Let’s review who they are below in this game!
Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers
Starters – Cam Akers (LAR). Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams (GB).
Upside Plays – Jared Goff, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp (LAR). Aaron Jones, Robert Tonyan, Jamaal Williams (GB).
Sleepers – Rams D/ST, Malcolm Brown, Josh Reynolds (LAR). Mercedes Lewis, Packers D/ST, Allen Lazard, Marques Valdes-Scantling (GB).
The Rams have the opportunity to really be a roadblock for the Green Bay Packers this week. They have certainly contained other high octane offenses this year in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Arizona Cardinals and just last week again the Seattle Seahawks. Adams may not have an off the charts game but I believe he will still get his yards in a tough matchup against Jalen Ramsey. Cam Akers can make things plenty easier for the Rams if he has another game that we saw him have last week in Seattle. That will help to keep the Green Bay offense and Aaron Rodgers on the side line. I would expect to see the other pass catchers to be relied on more in this game (Robert Tonyan, Allen Lazard and Marques Valdes-Scantling and possibly more Aaron Jones/Jamaal Williams catching passes from the backfield) for the Packers. The Rams offense will rely on Goff after Akers, so hopefully that thumb of his is feeling better so that Woods, Kupp, Reynolds and Higbee get their opportunities to put up points. I think that is more likely the healthier Goff is. At the end of the day I still think the Packers find a way to get it done at home but I would not be surprised if the Rams actually pulled it off this weekend. It’s the playoffs!
