Rams Power Rankings: Heading into Week 6

Following a 30-29 loss the Seahawks last Thursday, the Rams shift their focus to a Week 6 divisional home game against the 49ers.

San Francisco heads to Los Angeles in first place in the NFC West and with a perfect 4-0 record following a 31-3 win over Cleveland on Monday Night Football. A victory for the Rams would give them their first division win of the season.

Every week, TheRams.com will be taking an aggregate look at where the team ranks in different outlets across the sports media landscape. Here are the power rankings for the Rams heading into Week 6:

"Final outcome notwithstanding, the wild back-and-forth affair with the Seahawks featured positives for the Rams, who are still in good shape at 3-2. Jared Goff heated up after a slow start, Cooper Kupp continues to look better now than he did before his ACL injury, and Sean McVay made an obvious effort to get Todd Gurley involved from the start."

For its power rankings this week, ESPN's NFL Nation reporters gave the surprise fantasy player from the team they cover. Rams beat writer Lindsey Thiry chose WR Cooper Kupp:

"Kupp, the Rams' shifty and speedy slot receiver, is coming off season-ending ACL surgery, but that has not slowed him one bit. The third-year pro is the go-to target for quarterback Jared Goff. Kupp leads the team with 41 receptions on 63 targets. He has a team-high 505 receiving yards, and his five touchdowns are the most among a receiving corps that includes Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods."

"Greg Zuerlein has made some huge kicks. He missed, it happens. If that kick is a little bit to the left, we're praising the Rams for an enormous road win. There's plenty of time for the Rams to dig out of this relatively minor NFC West hole they find themselves in. In a strange way, the performance in a loss was encouraging."
