Trust = spike production for that player
Matthew Stafford: Stafford hit the bye week playing two of his worst games of the season, passing for 6.1 yards per attempt and 5.9 Y/A against the Titans and 49ers. The Rams had their bye week to recalibrate and account for the changes in personnel among their pass catchers. Stafford was a top-six scorer in five of his previous six games, so there’s room to give benefit of the doubt that the Rams can get things right.
Coming out the bye, they will face a defense led by Joe Barry, who was with the Rams the previous four seasons and was with Washington the two years prior to that when Sean McVay was the offensive coordinator there. If there is someone familiar with McVay’s approach, Barry is as good of bet as anyone.
The Titans and 49ers were able to disrupt the Rams with pressure as Stafford was 6-of-18 passing for 2.1 Y/A under pressure in those games while taking seven sacks. Green Bay is 22nd in pressure rate (23.0%).
There is shootout potential here just as there was with the Vikings and Packers last week. The Barry/McVay dynamic adds an extra wrinkle, but I would go back to Stafford as a QB1 option out of the bye.
