Los Angeles Rams DFS Spin
Jared Goff completed 19-of-31 passes for 198 yards and two picks in Los Angeles' 23-20 Week 12 loss to San Francisco. Aaron Donald did his best to offset another poor night from Goff with a forced fumble-six and pass deflection that resulted in an interception, but it wasn't enough to get Los Angeles over the hump on offense. Goff's first interception, which was inevitably intercepted by Richard Sherman, was so far off target that it would have been more challenging to walk over and hand it to Sherman. The 49ers tried to help the Rams build a lead, coughing up two fumbles and an interception mid-game, but Goff never stood a chance in tying Carson Wentz for the most interceptions under pressure (6) this year and failing to get Cooper Kupp involved until the second half. Perhaps Goff and Los Angeles' offense will actually be prepared to clap back in what projects as an up-tempo matchup in Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Kyler Murray (throwing shoulder) was upgraded to "full" for Thursday's practice. Murray got in a "limited" session on Wednesday. Murray was noticeably limited by his shoulder in the Cardinals' Week 12 loss to the Patriots, but coach Kliff Kingsbury claimed it wasn't an issue. It is definitely a concern ahead of Sunday's daunting matchup with the Rams. Murray is a borderline top-five option after several weeks in the top three
