Thousand Oaks, Calif. • Although Jared Goff had the most prolific passing performance of his young career last weekend, nothing about it was more impressive to Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay than his quarterback's first touchdown throw. Goff took a third-down snap in the red zone and coolly remained focused and upright in the moving pocket. He sidestepped, moved up and whipped an 8-yard TD pass to tight end Tyler Higbee while getting tackled by the New York Giants. "That's all him creating," McVay said Wednesday. "Good protection buys time, and Higbee is his fourth option in that progression right there. So I think there's plays that start to demonstrate, week in and week out, why he's taking steps in the right direction." Goff is maturing at an impressive pace for the Rams (6-2), who hit the halfway point of their season with a legitimate chance for their first playoff berth since 2004. McVay's new coaching staff has done impressive work, and a solid defense deserves … [Read more...] about Jared Goff’s skill grows every week for the surging L.A. Rams

The Rams are in an arms race with the Eagles, but the more talent they add the harder it gets to see clarity in their targets. by Heath Cummings @heathcummingssr 2h ago • 3 min read More Fantasy Football: Draft Prep Guide | Magazine Sneak Preview | Rankings The final major move in the arms race between the Rams and the Eagles was the Rams' addition of Brandin Cooks. You might think adding a receiver who has posted three consecutive 1,000 yard seasons would be a major one in terms of Fantasy impact, but it's hard to not be frustrated by it from our perspective.We just saw this Sean McVay offense steamroll through the NFL on the shoulders of Todd Gurley and a spread-it-around passing attack. While the offense was prolific, it was by no means a dream for pass catchers not named Gurley. No wide receiver topped 100 targets or 900 yards. Will Cooks arrival change that? I wouldn't bet on it.One of the reasons no … [Read more...] about 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Prep: Ranking the Fantasy Assets for the Los Angeles Rams
HENLEY HAWKS suffered their fifth successive defeat when their local rivals outplayed them in every aspect of the game at the Old Bath Road last Saturday with exception of their own line-out throws. This was the climax of a miserable season with the home side scoring eight tries to which the Hawks could not muster a response and in truth did not at any time in the game hint that they were likely to do so. Playing against the slope the opening exchanges were constantly in the Hawks’ 22 metre zone. The Hawks response to the ensuing pressure was to attempt to run the ball against a determined defence with handling moves breaking down frequently. Despite this they pursued this plan which has become common knowledge to their opponents as the season progressed, not least the Rams, whose coaching staff and players have been in their ranks in recent times. Kicking to relieve pressure was certainly not part of the Hawks’ game plan. Within … [Read more...] about Hawks have no answer to Rams in final day defeat
0 Have your say Halifax moved above Leigh in the Championship with a comfortable win at Dewsbury. The visitors, who reshuffled their side to accommodate new recruit Quentin Laulu-Togagae at full back, were never in trouble against Neil Kelly’s side, opening up a 22-12 half-time lead before pulling well clear in the final quarter.In a rock-solid debut, QLT provided Richard Marshall’s side with a different dimension in attack, providing the final pass for three tries and scoring a long-range effort himself.The Samoan wasted no time in making his presence felt, putting the impressive Chester Butler into space with 10 minutes on the clock and the centre-turned-back-rower applying a confident finish from 25 metres out.Steve Tyrer converted for a 6-0 lead, although that last a matter of moments when a loose ball from Scott Murrell allowed Dale Morton to exchange passes with Gareth Moore and score in the corner. Paul Sykes converted from the sideline, but Fax, who … [Read more...] about Dewsbury Rams 18 Halifax 46: Visitors rarely troubled by Rams
