 UNSUNG HERO: ROBERT WOODS

Pro Football Focus' Ben Cooper wrote about wide receiver Robert Woods' production on Friday. Cooper focuses on Woods dependability — specifically on targets across the middle of the field and on third down.

Here's why Cooper says Woods is L.A.'s unsung hero through seven games:

He doesn't have the deep speed of Cooks nor the slot prowess of Kupp, but Woods knows how to work the middle of the field as well as any receiver in the league. On 40 targets over the middle this year — the third-most among receivers — Woods has hauled in 31 catches for 475 yards, which trails only DeAndre Hopkins.

He's not only a sure-handed target for Goff but also a breakaway threat after the catch. He's sixth in yards after the catch on receptions down the middle with 204 — behind three running backs, an explosive Albert Wilson and an elusive George Kittle.

HIGHEST RATED O-LINEMAN

Left guard Rodger Saffold has received PFF's highest ranking for an offensive lineman so far this season.

On Tuesday, run game coordinator and offensive line coach Aaron Kromer said he believes Saffold has been the most underrated offensive lineman in the NFL.

"He doesn't get a lot of credit and I'm telling you, if you went back and evaluated his play on a play-to-play basis, I don't think there's a guard in the league that's as athletic and powerful and does as good a job as he does, both run and pass," Kromer said. "He did it all last year and he's doing it again this year."

RAMS REACH OUT

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Rams and tight end Tyler Higbee reached out to two local schools — Magnolia Science Academy 2 in Van Nuys and Sutter Middle School in Winnetka — to promote inclusion and acceptance as part of national "Know Your Classmates Day'.

According the Los Angeles Daily News, 'Know Your Classmates Day', "aims to eliminate stereotypes and prejudices that do damage to Muslim-American children, African-American students, LGBTQ young people, Dreamers and English-language learners."
