The Rams, local bookies and fans seem to have lucked out with Friday’s shock three-way mega trade.

Buffalo Bills get: WR Jordan Matthews, CB E.J. Gaines, Rams' 2018 second-round pick, Eagles' 2018 third-round pick

Philadelphia Eagles get: CB Ronald Darby

Los Angeles Rams get: WR Sammy Watkins, Bills' 2018 sixth-round pick

The real winner though according to Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com: Rams quarterback Jared Goff:

As the Rams try to build some sort of offensive infrastructure for the 2016 first overall pick, it's hard to imagine their acquiring a better receiver to work with than Watkins, who averaged 80.5 receiving yards per game while healthy in 2015, good for what would be nearly 1,300 receiving yards over a 16-game campaign. While Watkins hasn't lived up to the draft-day trade that saw the Bills deal two first-round picks to move up and acquire him ahead of Mike Evans and Odell Beckham Jr. in 2014, injuries have been the problem, not talent.
