ams RB Todd Gurley being in the mix of the MVP race in 2018 that has grown louder today thanks to a piece at the Ringer by Robert Mays.But that talk is misguided.Todd Gurley shouldn’t be in the MVP mix right now because Todd Gurley isn’t even the most valuable player on his own team.No , that designation as of now goes to QB Jared Goff.Through seven games, Gurley is averaging just shy of 100 rushing yards per game and just under 40 receiving yards per game. Last year, those averages were over 100 and 40. So in terms of yardage, he’s dipped just slightly, but that’s not worth criticizing as he remains arguably the best two-way threat in the entire NFL. The real difference between his 2017 and 2018 seasons to this point is touchdowns. Through seven games last year, JTG had five rushing touchdowns and three receiving TDs; this year Authentic Todd Gurley II Jersey , those numbers are 11 and three.So really if we’re making a case for Gurley as the MVP, it’s largely on the back of the increase of his touchdowns. At the midpoint last year, I thought LT Andrew Whitworth was the team MVP. I’d still have Whitworth above Gurley in terms of MVP, but I’d press harder on the offensive line as a whole as the unit overall is much better and looks absolutely stellar through seven games. But the main reason Gurley has that half dozen more touchdowns?The passing offense has put him in position to pick them up.Through seven games a year ago, Goff had 1,719 passing yards averaging just more than 245yards per game. This year Authentic Jared Goff Jersey , that number’s up to 2,130 with Goff averaging more than 300 yards per game. Whether it’s the system or the system QB, the passing game has taken a huge leap this year.And there’s no getting around how much more valuable that is.So while I’d make a case for the offensive line on principle and Gurley’s getting much of the acclaim, the most valuable player on the Rams in 2018 has been Goff. And it’s not close.Take this line from Mays’ piece in which he lauds Gurley for his skill, performance and versatility (and rightfully so):And that’s ultimately true.What made an impressive case for Gurley last year was how impressive he was down the stretch and how relatively unspectacular Goff was for much of the final run. And what’s different this year is that Goff has been quite spectacular at times and even when he hasn’t, for the most part , has been very good.So we can and should praise Just Todd. He’s a damn fine running back and maybe the best weapon in the entire sport. But the most valuable player this year has been Goff.Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks: Matchups to watch revisited After playing their first game outside of the state of California, the Los Angeles Rams remain undefeated with a perfect 5-0 record.Traveling to Seattle to play the Seahawks in their home is no easy task, and that proved true yesterday.Let’s take a look at the matchups to watch from last week and revisit how the battles ended:CB Nickell Robey-Coleman vs WR Doug BaldwinLast week’s matchup to watch:Doug Baldwin had one reception for one single yard. He was literally the definition of invisible. It actually turned out to be WR Tyler Lockett who had his way with the Rams’ defensive backs with three long catches that totaled 98 yards and a touchdown. Rookie WR David Moore chipped in with three receptions - two of which went for touchdowns (one was questionable). Nickell Robey-Coleman on the other hand turned out to be the Rams’ best defensive back on the day arguably. The unit struggled in general, though NRC’s physicality and tackling ability are always on display.LT Andrew Whitworth vs DE Frank ClarkLast week’s matchup to watch:Frank Clark was a problem yesterday for the Rams. Clark beat Whitworth on a few occasions as a pass rusher, but not only that, he actually registered an interception too. Clark returned that INT for 26 yards. He also registered a TFL on a jet sweep by Robert Woods where he got blown up. Now Womens Cory Littleton Jersey , it wasn’t all good. Whitworth also played a very good game himself, but that’s how the game goes sometimes. Good players win, and yesterday two good players got theirs.QB Jared Goff vs CB Shaquill GriffinLast week’s matchup to watch:If you looked at Jared Goff’s stat line you’d probably think he had a bad day, but that’s why we watch the games instead. Goff accounted for two interceptions on the day though one was simply a great pass breakup by a Seahawks defender that got batted up and dropped into Frank Clark’s hands, and the other was a hail mary attempt before the end of the half which was intercepted. Goff was picking apart (used to this yet?) the Seahawks’ defenders one-by-one. Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp were dominant and even depth players like Josh Reynolds and KhaDarel Hodge got their feet wet after concussions knocked out both Kupp and Brandin Cooks from the game.RB Todd Gurley vs MLB Bobby WagnerLast week’s matchup to watch:Todd Gurley wasn’t asked to do too much yesterday, though his physicality showed as he was finishing his runs with power all night. Gurley only had 77 rushing yards on 22 carries though he did have three rushing touchdowns. He also chipped in with four receptions for 36 yards. Gurley wasn’t allowed to kill the Seahawks (by gameplan) Womens Brandin Cooks Jersey , though he was still highly effective and poses a dangerous threat every time he touches the ball.DT Aaron Donald vs QB Russell WilsonLast week’s matchup to watch:Even though you didn’t hear his name called often, Donald was once again a handful for the Seahawks’ offensive line. Donald registered another sack keeping his streak going, and also chipped in with a tackle-for-loss. Much more is expected from the defensive line as a whole, but Ndamukong Suh did also chip in with another sack (and a second that was negated by defensive holding).K Cairo Santos vs himselfLast week’s matchup to watch:Outside of a missed extra point (which was awful) Santos had himself a solid game. Santos went 2-for-2 on field goals and 3-for-4 on extra points. Ultimately, his last field goal turned out to be the game winner; and it was a good time for him to rebound off a missed extra point.
