The Rams were able to hold off the Saints, 30-22, but it was also a key game in the world of fantasy football as teams are on the quest for a fantasy championship.

Here is how things shook out fantasy-wise in this Thursday night clash.

Puka Nacua has lasting power

The Rams were paced by their rookie wideout in this one as he caught nine passes for 164 yards and a touchdown in this game.

Nacua exploded onto the scene this year, coming out of nowhere after being selected in the fifth round of the draft. Though he has had a big season, there were still many detractors out there saying that his numbers would go down as soon as Cooper Kupp, who started the year with an injury, came back.

To an extent, that happened. But now that the Rams have figured out a way to incorporate both receivers, Nacua has been fantastic. That was on display again in this game.

If you were lucky enough to draft Nacua in your dynasty league before the season began, he might be taking you to a fantasy title right now. If you took our advice and added him after he started to rise, you're likely equally happy.

Nacua is having one of the best rookie seasons for a wide receiver ever.
