If you are in a dynasty league and you have Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua on your team, congratulations, you found one of the hidden gems in this year's rookie draft. If you don't have him on your roster, find a way to get him.

Perhaps Nacua is on the waiver wire in your league if you're in a league that isn't deep. Get that waiver wire claim in and if you use FAAB, be willing to splurge on this player. If he's on someone else's roster, they likely know what they have at this point, so trading for him won't be as easy as it would have been a week ago.

Just before the Rams' Week 1 game against the Seattle Seahawks, the team made the tough decision to place No. 1 wide receiver Cooper Kupp on injured reserve.

Without Kupp, the team needed someone to step up at wide receiver.

Though Tutu Atwell also had a big game for the Rams, it was Nacua who seemed to take over the Kupp role. He was targeted 15 times in the passing game and caught 10 passes for 119 yards.

But if you have followed the football career of Nacua, this should not be coming to light just now. In dynasty league circles, his name was one of the better "sleeper" names in any rookie pool this offseason.

Kupp is out until at least Week 5 as he deals with a hamstring issue. But even when he returns, the 22-year old Nacua is going to be a big part of this offense.

One of the best things about playing dynasty is finding players like this and having them on your roster as they become budding stars in the league. Even in a redraft league, he's a good option this season, but in a dynasty league, some of the best pieces can be those young stars that took you almost nothing to get.

Nacua is a future star in the league and if you can make it happen, get him on your roster.
