Thursday Night Football Preview: Rams vs Patriots

Well folks, we finally made it. The fantasy playoffs are officially here! Who carried you to that #1 seed? Who was your biggest bust? Let us know how your teams did this season in the comments below.

Los Angeles Rams Overview:

The Rams have been surging as of late and have taken a leg up in the crowded NFC West. Can they continue that against Super Cam? My guess is yes. They have both the superior offense and defense. Bill Belichick will make sure his guys put up a fight, but this Rams offense is going to be tough to slow down. What all fantasy managers should be keeping an eye on is how this backfield shakes out. Will we see another feature role for Cam Akers or will McVay revert back to a three-headed attack?

New England Patriots Overview:

Bill Belichick deserves consideration for Coach of the Year. There I said it. He took a Patriots team that was without Tom Brady at the helm for the first time in almost 20 years and had over half of its defense opt out for the 2020 season, to a legitimate playoff team. They aren’t the flashiest team out there, but they are playing tough, no nonsense football. Will that be enough to hang in there with the high-flying Rams?
