Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams will attempt to bounce back from their first defeat when they take on the Seahawks on Thursday Night Football. Stafford was an MVP frontrunner after three weeks, but is coming off his worst game in a Rams uniform in the team’s loss to Arizona. Still, he is among the league leaders in several passing categories and has a deep roster of pass-catchers including Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Tyler Higbee, all of whom could be popular NFL DFS picks. Any Rams’ skill position player could carry value for Thursday’s NFL DFS lineups with the Seahawks ranking dead last in yards allowed.

While the focus on the Rams’ offense has centered on their passing game, the running backs also shouldn’t be excluded when making your Rams vs. Seahawks DFS picks. Seattle ranks 31st in rushing yards allowed, so both Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel could run wild through the Seahawks’ defense. Who else has one of the advantageous NFL DFS matchups for Rams vs. Seahawks?

Top NFL DFS picks for Rams vs. Seahawks

One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Thursday Night Football is Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford. In what was considered an off-game for him, the former Lion was still productive in Week 4. Stafford threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns and has thrown for multiple touchdowns in all four games this year.

He’s already been named NFC Offensive Player of the Year twice this season after receiving the honor just once during his dozen years in Detroit. Stafford ranks second in the NFL in passing touchdowns (two), third in passing yards (1,222) and third in passer rating (117.6). Now, he faces a Seahawks defense that is allowing the fifth-most passing yards per game (292.5). Seattle has offered little deterrence to opposing quarterbacks all season and that shouldn’t change come Thursday.

Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes stacking Stafford with receiver Van Jefferson, who posted a 6-90-1 stat line in Week 4. For the season, the second-year pro has 13 grabs for 226 yards and two scores.

Jefferson is operating as the Rams’ No. 3 receiver and is ahead of DeSean Jackson on the depth chart. He’s played over three times as many snaps as Jackson and outproduced fellow receiver Robert Woods. Jefferson only trails Cooper Kupp in terms of receiving yards for the Rams. While Seattle has been susceptible to the pass this season, it has been victimized by opposing wideouts. Seattle has allowed the other team’s wide receivers to post over 200 yards and two touchdowns in each of the last two games.
