NFL Power Rankings - 32 surprise players to watch 2018 preseason
6. Los Angeles Rams
2017 record: 11-5
Post-draft ranking: 6
RB John Kelly. He has a strong chance of making the 53-man roster. A sixth-round pick from Tennessee, the rookie has impressed throughout training camp despite limited opportunity in a position group that features Todd Gurley, fourth-year pro Malcolm Brown and second-year pro Justin Davis. Kelly broke off a 40-yard run in a preseason opener against the Baltimore Ravens and finished with 77 yards in 13 carries. -- Lindsey Thiry

ESPN: Rams are No. 1 in under-25 talent rankings for 2018
The Los Angeles Rams didn’t just improve as a team this offseason. They also got significantly younger (and cheaper). By parting ways with guys like Robert Quinn and Connor Barwin, as well as Alec Ogletree, the Rams not only cleared cap space, but they replaced those players with younger starters in Samson Ebukam, Matt Longacre and Cory Littleton.
And that’s without even mentioning the additions of Marcus Peters and Brandin Cooks, both of whom are among the best young players at their respective positions. As a result, they’re one of the best young teams in the league.
ESPN certainly sees it that way, ranking the Rams No. 1 in the NFL in under-25 talent.

NFL - Ranking all 32 teams by under-25 talent for the 2018 season
1. Los Angeles Rams
2017 ranking: 27
The Rams climbed higher (26 spots) in the rankings than any team this year thanks to head coach Sean McVay showing us just how bad of a job Jeff Fisher was doing. We've usually had the Rams in the top five for these rankings, but we dropped them to 27th last year after Jared Goff's horrific rookie season and the struggles of Todd Gurley II. Enter McVay, and the Rams had one of the greatest single-season turnarounds in NFL history.
Goff is still far from a top-tier quarterback, but he made huge strides from a 2016 season that had us seriously questioning if he could cut it in the NFL. As a rookie, Goff's passing DVOA without pressure was minus-45.2 percent, the worst season since 2010 by far. With McVay implementing a yards-after-catch-based offense that was heavy on throws to the slot, Goff's DVOA without pressure shot up to 83.4 percent, the second-highest season by a quarterback last year. Gurley was the MVP runner-up in a season that saw him average 12.47 YAC per reception, the second-highest season in ESPN's database since 2006.
Cooper Kupp had an excellent rookie season as the team's slot receiver. The Rams even traded for deep threat Brandin Cooks (still 24) from New England. Pharoh Cooper isn't much of a wide receiver, but he was first-team All-Pro on special teams last season. Tight end Gerald Everett could get more involved in his second season as a former second-round pick.
The Rams occupy the top spot with a major lean on offensive firepower, but the defense should have two under-25 starters waiting to make their mark in linebacker Samson Ebukam and safety John Johnson. The latter finished 15th in adjusted yards per pass (6.0) among safeties in 2017.

PFF ranks Jared Goff 18th among starting QBs entering 2018
Jared Goff was widely viewed as one of the worst quarterbacks in the league as a rookie in 2016. Last season, he was substantially better, ranking in the top-half in nearly every relevant passing stat.
His progression was impossible to ignore, which understandably has Los Angeles Rams fans very excited about the future. After all, he is a former No. 1 overall pick with All-Pro potential, so there’s plenty of reason for optimism in sunny L.A.

ESPN/FO: LA Rams lead the way for under-25 talent entering 2018 - Turf Show Times
Ranked in the bottom five last year, a year of improved Jared Goff really changes the perception.
What a difference a year makes in perception of the Los Angeles Rams talent.
A year ago, Football Outsiders had the Rams under-25 talent at 27th in the league (Insider subscription required), and at the time who could blame them?
QB Jared Goff had a horrendous rookie season. RB Todd Gurley seemed to have taken a huge step back. Beyond those two, the talent didn’t look to be very deep or productive.
Flash forward a year, the same group thinks the Rams have the best young talent in the NFL:

Los Angeles Rams viewed as one of the NFL’s most overrated teams - Turf Show Times
This is all Jared Goof’s fault...
There are many that feel the Los Angeles Rams are going to be a very good football team in 2018. Some even think they’ve got the talent, and coaching, to make a deep run in the playoffs and potentially play for the Lombardi. It makes sense, considering how well they played in 2017, despite their first round exodus from the playoffs.
And then there are those that feel the Rams are just an overrated, overhyped squad that will quickly fizzle and return to the depths of the NFC where they belong.
The folks at Walter Football fall into the latter category...and have for some time. Before we get into their thoughts on this year’s most overrated and underrated NFL teams, let’s take a quick look back at some of their Rams’ content from the past year.

NFL's most impactful trade acquisitions: Rams, Browns power up - NFL.com
1) Brandin Cooks, WR, Los Angeles Rams
I understand the skepticism some have with Cooks, seeing as how he was traded in back-to-back offseasons by Sean Payton and Bill Belichick. But ... well ... I don't care. He's a speedster and a great downfield receiver. The Rams clearly agree: Shortly after giving up a first-rounder for Cooks, L.A. locked up the wideout on a mega-bucks long-term deal.
Over his final two seasons with the Saints, Cooks posted a pair of juicy stat lines: 84 catches/1,138 yards/9 TDs in 2015 and 78/1,173/8 in '16. In his lone season with the Pats? Pretty similar: 65/1,082/7, with a whopping 16.6 yards per catch. The dude produces. And he's still just 24 years old, so there's plenty of room for development.
With the great Sean McVay calling plays, the expedited development of Jared Goff into a big-time quarterback and the domination of Todd Gurley, Cooks can streak and hit home runs. I think he is the kind of big-play receiver who'll be dreamy in McVay's offense. Cooks' presence takes this attack, which led the NFL in scoring last season, to another level.
5) Marcus Peters, CB, Los Angeles Rams
Yes, he was a knucklehead at times in K.C. But don't underestimate how great a player Peters can be when he's engaged and focused on football.
And with the great Wade Phillips coaching him up in L.A., this is the kind of move that takes the Rams' defense to another level. Peters is a bona-fide ballhawk, as evidenced by his 19 interceptions since entering the league in 2015 -- easily the highest total in the NFL during that span (safety Reggie Nelson ranks second with 14). Something tells me he's going to get a fair amount of INT opportunities in L.A., with the Rams' ferocious front routinely terrifying opposing passers.
6) Aqib Talib, CB, Los Angeles Rams
Yes, he was a knucklehead at times in Denver. But don't underestimate how great a player Talib can be when he's engaged and focused on football.
And we already saw how Talib performed under Phillips during their two years together on the Broncos, with the corner earning a pair of Pro Bowl nods and a first-team All-Pro designation in 2016. Talib should be on his best behavior and ready to rock.
The Rams still need to figure out Aaron Donald's contract, but if/when they do, this defense has scary potential. With Donald, Ndamukong Suh and Michael Brockers up front, and Talib, Peters and underrated safety Lamarcus Joyner in the back end ... watch out! Combine Phillips' defense with McVay's offense, and yes, you have a leading title contender.

Forbes ranks Lakers as second-most valuable NBA franchise, eighth-most valuable sports team - Silver Screen and Roll
The Lakers continue to be valued as one of the most lucrative professional sports organizations in the world by Forbes.
Everyone knows the Los Angeles Lakers are valuable. With 16 titles and one of the biggest media markets in the league, that the team is worth a ton of money is obvious.
But just how much are the Lakers worth? As they do every year, Forbes attempted to answer that question, and calculated that L.A.’s favorite basketball franchise is worth an estimated $3.3 billion, a whopping 10 percent increase in value from the year before.
The Lakers’ jump in worth made them the eighth-most valuable professional sports franchise in the world and the second-most valuable NBA team, trailing the New York Knicks by $0.3 billion.
The Warriors ($3.1 billion, 10th overall) are the next NBA team on the list, while the Lakers’ fellow Los Angeles franchise, the Clippers, rank 41st in the NBA with a value of $2.15 billion.
