Rams listed WR Puka Nacua as questionable for Monday Night Football against the Bengals. Head coach Sean McVay relayed that he expects the surging rookie to play against the Bengals in Week 3 even though he is listed as questionable. Nacua has set multiple rookie records through his first two professional outings, including most targets for a rookie through two games, most targets for a rookie in a single game, and most reception for a rookie in a single game.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Joe Burrow (calf) will be a game-time decision for Week 3 against the Rams. Rapoport said that Burrow will go through a pre-game workout to determine his status. It’s possible that the Bengals are employing some gamesmanship with Burrow’s status and simply don’t want to tip their hand to the Rams yet. For fantasy managers, this is a nightmare scenario. Burrow plays on Monday meaning there will be next to no backup options available if Burrow doesn’t go. For the bravest managers looking to gamble with Burrow, Matthew Stafford and Baker Mayfield are the emergency options.

Rams vs. Bengals Prediction:
Back the Rams tonight in Cincinnati. The Bengals started 0-2 last season, but appear to be more of a mess this time around. Burrow and the offense has yet to get off the ground and they have no rushing attack to lean on while the quarterback’s calf heals. Plus, if he is truly a game-time decision and doesn’t play, now is the time to jump on L.A. The Rams already upset the Seahawks in Seattle and gave the 49ers a game last week as a home dog. They’re simply playing better football than the Bengals right now.
