Since the merger, there have been only 17 games in which at least six top-five skill position players resided on either team's roster (injured or active). That 49ers-Rams game was the only one that featured as many as seven. Tonight's a pretty rare treat for us in fantasy!

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

The last time more than six top-five players in terms of PPR fantasy points (entering the week in question) appeared in the same game was a 1989 Week 14 Monday Night Football game between the 49ers and Rams, which included seven: Joe Montana, Jim Everett, Roger Craig, Jerry Rice, Henry Ellard, Brent Jones and Pete Holohan. The highest-scoring player from that game? It was none of those six, but rather wide receiver John Taylor, whose 51.6 PPR fantasy points are the 12th-most at his position since the merger.

Tonight's Chiefs-Rams game features six skill-position (QB/RB/WR/TE) players who ranked among the top five at their respective positions in PPR fantasy points entering the week. Counting only games played on Nov. 1 or later, this will be the first time since 2007 Week 9, a Patriots-Colts game during the height of the Peyton Manning-Tom Brady rivalry, that as many as six top-five players have appeared in the same game.

Here's a look at the Rams' Saturday injury and participation report. Sean McVay said everyone would be available on Monday against the Chiefs, except Cooper Kupp, who underwent knee surgery to repair a torn ACL. Kupp is out for the season.

Sean McVay has not determined if Pharoh Cooper will be part of the active roster on Monday night, but McVay said even if he was, that he would not replace JoJo Natson as the punt returner. However, Cooper would likely take over kick-return duties from Blake Countess, McVay said. Cooper was placed on IR after he suffered an ankle injury that required surgery in a Week 1 win over the Raiders.

Todd Gurley, on the over/under for the Rams-Chiefs game, which opened at 64 points, per the Westgate Las Vegas: "I don't even know what you're talking about, I don't even gamble, so I don't even know what that means."

Rams CB Marcus Peters said Monday's game against the Chiefs was "Just another football game." Of course, it's a little bit more than that. The Chiefs selected Peters with the 18th overall pick in 2015 and in 3 seasons with the Chiefs, he led the NFL with 19 interceptions. However the Chiefs opted to trade Peters to the Rams over the offseason. When asked for his reaction to how his time in KC ended, with a trade, Peters said Thursday, "Yeah, so I can't do nothing about it. I didn't ask for it. I appreciate everything the Kansas City Chiefs did for me and my family for giving me the opportunity to play in this league. Now I'm just loving and enjoying being a LA Ram." Sean McVay said he he would discuss with Peters the feelings that naturally arise when facing a former team.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL. Sean McVay said that the surgery went well, and that Kupp seemed to be in good spirits during a phone call.
