Sean McVay has officially been named the head coach of the Los Angeles Rams. The ex-offensive coordinator of the Washington Redskins is making the move to LA as the youngest head coach in NFL History at 30 years old (until he turns 31 in two weeks). This is a great move for the Rams to try to piece together some of their offensive weapons while also doing it in LA fashion by hiring the youngest guy in the running.
With McVay as the offensive coordinator in 2016, the ‘Skins ranked third in total offensive yards just behind the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons. The Redskins offense was unstoppable the prior two years, led by Kirk Cousins, but McVay will have to mold this offense in LA as their quarterback and former first overall pick, Jared Goff is under fire already after his first season. Cousins and Jordan Reed broke Redskins’ records in 2015, resulting with Reed putting up a 87-952-11 stat line.
McVay has a lot of work to do and seeing as he’s going to LA, his leash will probably be short. We’ll have to wait and see if he can turn the program around, and if they give him enough time to try, especially after Jeff Fisher seemed to destroy it more and more year after year.
For fantasy purposes, this should be great news for studs like Todd Gurley, Kenny Britt and even tight end Lance Kendricks, as McVay has shown that he possesses a brilliant offensive mind. Can McVay’s offensive mind turn Gurley back into the fantasy monster that we thought he would be? Could he also turn the 2016 No. 1 draft pick into the next Kirk Cousins? Only time will tell.
