The Los Angeles Rams won five consecutive games heading into a Week 18 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers. Matthew Stafford has seen his ups and downs, but the Rams have to be excited for what he has done for the team in the rare starting quarterback-for-starting quarterback swap in the offseason with the Detroit Lions. Los Angeles has the most efficient offense in terms of yards per play, and they should be a tough out in the postseason.
Looking ahead to the offseason, the Rams are in a very strange spot for the NFL Draft. Los Angeles has done a ton of trading, which means they have very few draft choices. At this point, the Rams do not have a single pick in the first two rounds of the draft, and their first draft choice will be in the third round, which is a compensatory pick. Los Angeles does not need a ton of upgrades with a solid team on both sides of the ball, so there is not a need for a ton of movement this offseason.
