Three Los Angeles Rams and Green Bay Packers players to draft
Draft: Cam Akers, vs Green Bay Packers

Los Angeles Rams' defense is ranked fourth in the NFL in pass defense. This could scare Draft Kings lineup owners away from Rodgers. Remember he isn't the front runner for the NFL MVP Award by luck. Aaron Rodgers is a safe start for all lineup owners against the Rams.
Draft: Aaron Jones, vs Los Angeles Rams
Draft Kings Salary: $6,800
Why Draft Kings lineup owners should draft Aaron Jones: If there is a weakness to the Los Angeles Rams defense it is their rush defense. The Rams are currently 13th in the NFL in rush defense. With Jalen Ramsey covering Davante Adams, the Packers will look to establish their running game early.
Three players to stay away from in the Los Angeles Rams vs Green Bay Packers
Stay away: Jared Goff, vs Green Bay Packers
Draft Kings Salary: $5,200
Why Draft Kings lineup owners should stay away from Jared Goff: Jared Goff will most likely walk into the game against the Green Bay Packers at about 85% fitness.

Stay away: Los Angeles Rams Defense, vs Green Bay Packers
Draft Kings Salary: $2,600
Why Draft Kings Lineup owners should stay away from the Los Angeles Rams Defense: Los Angeles Rams defense is great but the matchup is bad for them. If the Packers can establish a running game early it could be a long day at the office for the Rams. With Jared Goff not being 100% the Rams will rely on their defense to win this game. On the road in Green Bay is just a bad matchup for the Rams defense.
Stay away: Robert Woods, vs Green Bay Packers
Draft Kings Salary: $5,900
Why Draft Kings lineup owners should stay away from Robert Woods: Los Angeles Rams wide receivers are a hit or miss each week. They spread the ball around very well when they pass. Woods shouldn't be singled out against the Packers all the Rams pass catchers outside of Cam Akers should be off limits for Saturdays game against the Packers.Published 14 Jan 2021, 21:51 IST
