|New look, new location, new quarterback. The Los Angeles Rams are looking to forget the disastrous 2015 season which led to them opting to move up to the No. 1 overall draft pick this season. The franchise knew it needed a facelift and they decided to select quarterback Jared Goff. Head coach Jeff Fisher has repeatedly stated that he won’t rush Goff into the starting role and he has a history of letting younger talent sit while more experienced players are on the field. The reality is that Goff is the only quarterback on this roster who is at all interesting for fantasy purposes. We’ve seen what Nick Foles and Case Keenum have to offer and it’s not much. There’s a real chance that Keenum begins the season as the starter, but as the Rams offense inevitably struggles, the fans will begin to demand that Goff gets a chance. Realistically, Goff should only be on fantasy radars in extremely deep two quarterback leagues or dynasty formats. It could be a few more seasons before the Rams finally make a real attempt to address their awful pass catching options and there’s no reason to bank on some sort of dramatic improvement happening this season.
|Rams name Sean McVay new head coach|
Washington OC to become youngest HC in modern NFL history

|A few hours after the Chargers officially declared their move to the City of Angels, the Rams followed that up Thursday by announcing Sean McVay as their new coach. McVay signed a five-year contract with the team, a source informed told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. The 30-year-old former Redskins offensive coordinator turns 31 on January 24, making him the youngest head coach in modern NFL history. He takes over the youthful title from Lane Kiffin, who was hired by the Raiders in 2007. (NFL.com)|
FFToday's Take: McVay reportedly received glowing recommendations from Jon and Jay Gruden. Denver DC Wade Phillips is expected to come onboard shortly to serve as his defensive coordinator. McVay is credited with helping Kirk Cousins develop into a upper-level NFL quarterback and the Rams desperately hope he can work the same magic on 2016 No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff. An equally pressing concerns is addressing the talent on the offensive line and at receiver.
