Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals: Five Rams to watch Week 2 sees the Arizona Cardinals coming to town to battle our beloved Los Angeles Rams. The two teams walked divergent paths last week http://www.theramslockerroom.com/authentic-jamon-brown-jersey , with the Cardinals getting torched by the Washington NFL Team, while the Rams handled the Oakland Raiders handily in a baseball stadium in Oakland. Here are five guys who Rams fans should have their eyes on this week. They’re either here because they’ve got something to prove or can have a big impact in this week’s contest.LB Cory LittletonSure, he led the Rams with 13 tackles on Monday night and drew praise from DC Wade Phillips, but he’s still on the hot seat with Rams fans and TST staffers. Corey Littleton’s week one performance was uneven, to say the least. If Cards TE Ricky Seals-Jones pulls a Jared Cook, all eyes on will be on #58. Is he Ogletree 2.0, or will he settle into his role and play with a little more consistency? David Johnson and check-down legend Sam Bradford ought to help shed some light.TE Tyler HigbeeDespite playing on 95% of the Rams’ offensive snaps, TE Tyler Higbee received 0 targets against the Raiders. Given that QB Jared Goff was barely touched all night, Higbee’s blocking was likely beneficial to the Rams’ offense, but we’d certainly like to see him make a few plays. Will McVay ever establish a Jordan Reed / Vernon Davis attack with Higbee and second-year man Gerald Everett? If week one is any indication, Rams TEs will continue to gather dust on the waiver wire in your fantasy league. Look for signs of life this week.WR Robert WoodsWoods was targeted 9 times on Monday night Womens Greg Zuerlein Jersey , but was only able to haul in 3 for 37 yards. He seemed to be getting separation downfield, but Goff missed him twice on deep balls. With Patrick Peterson likely following Brandin Cooks around on Sunday, look for Woods to re-establish himself as Goff’s top option and move the chains early and often this week.WR JoJo NatsonJust signed this week, the diminutive return man out of Akron will get his chance to take over Pharoh Cooper’s role for the foreseeable future. During the preseason, Natson looked fast and decisive on his returns, and though he’s replacing a Pro Bowler, we’re not expecting much drop-off. At just 5’7” and 153 lbs., his value in other areas of special teams remains to be seen, but hopefully JoJo can make a play or two this weekend.OLB/EDGE Dominique EasleyTransitioning into his new role at OLB/EDGE, Easley flashed a little bit last week during his 32 snaps (10 more than presumptive starter Matt Longacre). For a guy with so many knee injuries, he’s showing some resilience and versatility – lest we forget his first round pedigree. His emergence may simply be due to Longacre’s nagging injuries Gerald Everett Jersey , but he looked comfortable out there on Monday. Historically a DT, if Easley’s able to give the Rams a boost and stay healthy, he could be the veteran LB help we’ve all been clamoring for. Between major trades and key draft picks, the Rams are now facing the beginning of the transition out of the last roster build.

Now, the bill’s due.Los Angeles Rams HC Sean McVay congratulates QB Jared Goff and RB Todd Gurley after a touchdown against Washington, Sep. 17, 2017.Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY SportsOver the last two offseasons, the Los Angeles Rams have been unusually aggressive in taking advantage of some of their most important players being on inexpensive rookie deals by trading for talented but unwanted pieces and exploiting the available cap space those rookie deals created.That aggression allowed the Rams to go all-in on an effort to build a Super Bowl-caliber roster. That roster got them to the Super Bowl. Hard to be upset.But now Eric Weddle Jersey , the cost of that deal is coming due, and it’s coming due in two forms.One of those is in terms of draft picks and the deficit the Rams have built up over the last four years both in moving up in the draft but also in packaging draft picks in moves that brought in talented, though temporary, roster upgrades. That, coupled with the wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide group of role players on expiring deals, means the Rams are in the precarious situation of losing much of the middle third of their roster. While that doesn’t grab the attention (or money) of the top end of the roster, it’s nearly as important on the field.But the other cost of that aggression is much more quantifiable. And it’s in the form of a couple of players that will cost the Rams much, much (, much, much) more in 2019 than it did a year ago.It comes down, largely http://www.theramslockerroom.com/authentic-cooper-kupp-jersey , to five players: WR Brandin Cooks, DL Aaron Donald, LT Andrew Whitworth, CB Marcus Peters and RT Rob Havenstein. I’ll throw in RB Todd Gurley for the purposes of rounding-friendly figures, but it’s mostly about that quintet.As a six-man group, those six players will cost the Rams more than $40m in 2019 than they did in 2018. To be specific using numbers from Over The Cap, they’ll cost $41,095,577. If you’re wondering why the Rams are so cavalier about letting LG Rodger Saffold III, DL Ndamukong Suh, S Lamarcus Joyner and EDGE Dante Fowler Womens Tyler Higbee Jersey , Jr., hit the market, that’s your easy answer.They picked the former over the latter.2018-19 LA Rams key contract increasesPOSPlayer20182019DifferencePOSPlayer20182019DifferenceThat’s not a decision deserving criticism by any means. A plurality of teams, if not a majority, would love to have that six-man group the Rams are bringing back in 2019. And Whitworth’s return from the precipice of retirement was met with celebration for a reason.It just comes at a cost.So while Rams fans can lament that the team has little wiggle room to address burgeoning needs across the defense and offensive line, the simple reason why is that the Rams have locked in a functioning core that has helped them win the NFC West the last two seasons and led them to a Super Bowl appearance just a month ago.If you’re gonna spend money, you might as well spend it wisely.
