The Worksheet, a fantasy football overview by Rich Hribar, breaking down everything you need to know for the Week 6 Los Angeles Rams at New York Giants Sunday afternoon game.
|LA Rams||Rank||@||NY Giants||Rank|
|38.24%||8||Opp. Rush %||44.44%||25|
|61.76%||25||Opp. Pass %||55.56%||8|
- The Rams have thrown the ball 54.5% inside of the 10-yard line this season, fourth in the NFL. In 2020, that rate was 26.8% (31st).
- Matthew Stafford is 3-of-12 (25%) passing inside of the 10-yard, 25th out of 29 quarterbacks to throw five or more passes in that area of the field.
- Daniel Jones is 0-of-5, the lowest in the league.
- The Rams lead the league in sack differential (+10).
Matthew Stafford: Stafford is second in the NFL in yards per pass attempt (9.1 Y/A) and first in yards per completion (13.6 yards), but for as strong as Stafford’s start has been for the Rams, he has finished higher than the QB16 in just two of the opening five weeks for fantasy. The floor has been high with 16.5 or more fantasy points in every game, but a few missed deep balls and his performance near the end zone have limited the spike weeks.
The Giants have opened the season 22nd in touchdown rate (5.7%), 23rd in passing points allowed per attempt (0.51), and 32nd in completion rate (73.9%) to opposing passers, so there is no matchup concern going back to Stafford as a QB1 in hopes he starts to cash in his scoring chances.
