The Los Angeles Rams have now been to the playoffs three times in four seasons under Sean McVay. While McVay has yet to take this team to a Super Bowl title, it’s clear he has established that the Rams are a legitimate contender for the foreseeable future. They knocked off the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card Round of this year’s playoffs before falling to the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field during the Divisional Round.

Los Angeles Rams Season Recap

This season saw a shift in the Rams’ priorities. The Rams were known for their offense during McVay’s first three seasons, but the attention turned to their defense in 2020. Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey both had sensational years, leading to this being the top-ranked defense in the NFL.

They led the league in total defense (281.9 YPG) and scoring defense (18.5 PPG). The Rams were by far the best pass defense, allowing just 5.1 YPA, and the run defense was third in the league allowing 3.6 YPC.

Donald was a huge part of that success, and he should be the NFL Defensive Player of the Year for the third time in four seasons. He finished tied for second in the league in sacks (13.5 sacks), and his play allowed Leonard Floyd and others to shine. Donald dwarfed everyone in sacks created, proving why he is the most dominant defensive lineman we have seen in decades.

Ramsey was arguably the best cornerback in the league too. While it’s harder to measure the value of an elite cornerback since they rarely pick off a lot of passes, Ramsey was named a First Team All-Pro by both main sources. Los Angeles paid a hefty price to land him, but it has been worth it.

Jared Goff had a decent season, completing 67 percent of his passes for 3,952 yards with 20 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. However, it’s becoming increasingly clear the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft doesn’t have what it takes to be a star in this league. Goff signed a hefty four-year extension last summer, and the Rams might reevaluate their options this offseason.

This team does have a running back of the future though. After starting the season with Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown getting most of the carries, rookie Cam Akers made it clear he was the best back on the roster. He ran for 625 yards (4.3 YPC) despite missing three games, and he avoided some of the issues that typically plague rookies. That should make him a prime breakout player in fantasy leagues in 2021.

These receivers were solid without Brandin Cooks holding down the No. 1 spot. Cooper Kupp led the team with 92 receptions for 974 yards and three touchdowns, and Robert Woods was right behind him with 90 receptions for 936 yards and six scores. Both players caught a lot of underneath passes though, as no one on the roster with more than five receptions averaged more than 12.0 YPR. Rookie Van Jefferson seemed to mold into a deep threat later in the year though.

The Rams solved a lot of their cap issues last offseason. They let go of Todd Gurley, Cooks, and others, but they will have some more choices to make between March and July. Donald and Ramsey are likely the only two players that are completely immovable, as there were indications that McVay might be looking to move on from Goff. That would make this a lively offseason in LA.
