Los Angeles Rams rookie is proving his mettle

The Los Angeles Rams' Puka Nacua is another rookie who has made a significant impact again in Week 4. Nacua scored his first touchdown in a Rams uniform in walk-off fashion in overtime to clinch the Rams' 29-23 win over the Colts.

Nacua has emerged as a consistent and reliable target for Matt Stafford, making every Rams fan forget about Cooper Kupp. With his excellent route running and safe hands, Nacua has proven himself a dependable asset to his team. His highlight of week 4 was a clutch catch in overtime, securing a hard-fought victory for his team. His ability to perform under pressure indicates a player with a bright future in the NFL.

Nacua is a rising star in the NFL

Nacua finished Week 4 with nine receptions for 163 yards and one touchdown. It's hard to imagine where the Rams offense would be over the last four games without the fifth-round pick. Nacua is outpacing Cooper Kupp's triple-crown season in receptions and yards. He has more yards and receptions than any rookie wide receiver in the first five games of their career.

Consistency is key

 He is the NFL's top receiver with 39 catches for 501 yards this season. He is leading in both catches and yards. He has pulled in 39 league-leading 52 targets, showing Stafford trust in Nacua's ability. He is a draft-day steal on his way to being a 5th-round legend.

While it will be difficult for Nacua to maintain this pace, he will undoubtedly remain a significant part of the offense. His consistent performance and ability to score under pressure have made him one of the top rookies of Week 4.
