Cooper Kupp caught 2-of-3 targets for 35 yards in the Rams' Week 6 win over the Jaguars.
There wasn't a whole lot Kupp could do against the Jaguars' elite pass defense on a day where Jared Goff completed all of 11 passes. He has a brighter outlook for Week 7, where Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson will occupy Sammy Watkins, freeing Kupp to run at some of the Cards' more vulnerable corners. Oct 15 - 7:45 PM

Cooper Kupp caught 3-of-8 targets for 44 yards in the Rams' Week 5 loss to the Seahawks.

Kupp should have had a fourth grab, and a game-winner at that. With 12 seconds remaining, a previously-struggling Jared Goff delivered a perfect seed down the seam after Kupp put Justin Coleman on skates, but the rookie couldn't haul in the pass. He was the target one play later on a similar play/route, only this time the Seahawks were ready. Kupp has out-targeted Sammy Watkins 29-20, but hasn't done anything to deserve the honor. The Rams need to work harder on freeing Watkins. Kupp's fantasy value should remain limited to WR3/4 status in PPR leagues.

Cooper Kupp caught 5-of-7 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 4 upset of the Cowboys.

Kupp had a monster second half, racking up catch after catch and drawing penalties as the Cowboys' slot coverage and linebackers in the middle of the field simply couldn't hang with him. Kupp has been up and down in a spread-the-wealth Rams passing game, rendering him a sort of boom-bust WR4/flex. He does get a favorable matchup against Seattle's leaky slot coverage in Week 5.

Cooper Kupp caught 2-of-2 targets for 17 yards against the 49ers in Week 3.

He played 37 of the 65 snaps in this game, but this win was all about Todd Gurley and Sammy Watkins. Jared Goff going down the field more than anticipated has cooled the hype on the slot man, but NFL defenses could make an adjustment to help make the rookie as more of a security blanket. Most owners in competitive leagues should just bench him, but he is trending down after his strong Week 1.

Cooper Kupp snared three-of-six targets for 33 yards Sunday in the Rams’ Week 2 loss to the Redskins.

Kupp set up a Todd Gurley goal-line touchdown with a terrific catch in the second quarter. Unfortunately, he was also the intended receiver on Jared Goff’s game-ending interception. Kupp has seen some ups and downs over his first two NFL games, but remains one of the league’s better young slot receivers. Look for him to bounce back Thursday night in San Francisco.
Sep 17 - 8:53 PM

Cooper Kupp tallied four catches for 76 yards and a touchdown on six targets Sunday in the Rams’ Week 1 win over the Colts.

Kupp’s 76 yards were a game-high. His highlights included an 18-yard touchdown strike from Jared Goff in the second quarter and an acrobatic 28-yard grab in the fourth. Kupp did commit a bad drop in the third quarter, but aside from that miscue, his NFL debut was a resounding success. It’s time for fantasy owners to take Kupp seriously, particularly in PPR leagues.

Cooper Kupp is listed behind Robert Woods on the Rams' Week 1 depth chart.

Kupp suffered a groin injury late in the preseason, so his Week 1 health is uncertain. We'll get our first update with Wednesday's injury report. Kupp seemed to be both coach Sean McVay and Jared Goff's preferred target underneath this summer, though Woods is a $10 million guaranteed free agent. There will be targets there for the taking, but perhaps Kupp still has to "earn" them on the regular season field.

Rams third-round WR Cooper Kupp (groin) will miss Saturday's third preseason game.

Kupp's injury isn't serious, but it's a blow for the 24-year-old rookie. The third preseason game is a team's regular season dress rehearsal. The starters will play into the second half. Kupp has already formed a nice rapport with Jared Goff (8/105 this summer), but will be missing valuable reps. It will likely take some of the air out of Kupp's ADP, which could be a boon for shrewd fantasy drafters.
Aug 24 - 3:26 PM

Rams third-round WR Cooper Kupp caught 6-of-7 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game.

Even with Sammy Watkins in the fold this week, Kupp was Jared Goff's go-to receiver. His score was a 23-yard pantsing of the Raiders on play action. Kupp now has eight grabs for 105 yards and a score through two summer games. It's the preseason, but he's proven quite adept at creating space and getting open. He could be a rookie problem with coach Sean McVay scheming him the ball.
Aug 19 - 11:47 PM

Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught 2-of-3 targets for 35 yards in Saturday's preseason opener.

He also recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown. Listed as a starter on the Rams' initial depth chart, Kupp has a knack for getting open. There are major stumbling blocks ahead of him for rookie targets, but it's not outside the realm of possibility he works himself ahead of Robert Woods in 2017.
Aug 12 - 11:48 PM

Coach Sean McVay praised third-round WR Cooper Kupp following Monday's practice.

"I see a mature rookie," McVay said of the 24-year-old. "[He's] one of those receivers that sees the game through the quarterback's eyes. He always has a plan at the line of scrimmage, understands coverages and route concepts, and I think that's what enables him to be such a productive player and very advanced for a rookie." McVay added he expects Kupp to contribute immediately. Already listed with the starters on the Rams' first depth chart, Kupp and Jared Goff reportedly have developed a strong rapport. Kupp might be the most intriguing pass-catcher on the team from a fantasy standpoint and is still free in drafts.
Aug 7 - 10:13 PM

Third-round pick Cooper Kupp is listed as a starter on the Rams' first depth chart of preseason.

Kupp is slated for the Jamison Crowder role in new Rams coach Sean McVaey's offense, while Robert Woods serves as the Pierre Garcon, and Tavon Austin does a destitute man's impression of DeSean Jackson. The favorite to lead L.A. in targets is Woods, but we wouldn't rule out Kupp passing him. Jared Goff figures to remain a checkdown machine, and Kupp will run high-percentage slot routes.
Aug 7 - 5:34 PM

Third-round WR Cooper Kupp is listed as a "probable starter" on the initial Rams depth chart.

Kupp modestly responded "all that stuff's speculation" and he still "hasn't done anything." On a roster devoid of talent at the receiver position, there is certainly a chance Kupp starts. Head coach Sean McVay has shown his support before saying after rookie camp that the rookie "consistently showed up."
Jul 27 - 12:05 PM

ESPN Rams reporter Alden Gonzalez expects third-round WR Cooper Kupp to be Jared Goff's "security blanket."

Robert Woods and Tavon Austin should open the season as the Rams' top two receivers, but Kupp is expected to man the slot in three-receiver sets. Kupp has drawn consistent praise in padless practices. "He came in here not like most rookies do," were the words of OC Matt LaFleur. "He’s an extremely polished route runner, got great hands. You can tell he works at his craft each and every day. He does a great job." That's great, but Kupp is still a slot man with 4.62 speed playing with Jared Goff. He would do well to carve out WR4 value.
Jun 12 - 2:20 PM

Rams signed third-round WR Cooper Kupp to a four-year contract.

After a nice career at EWU where he broke the all-division college record for career receiving yards (6,464), Kupp was drafted with the No. 69 overall pick. Kupp has a chance to carve out a role early as a rookie with the Rams missing around 300 targets from last season and only adding Robert Woods in free agency. Kupp "was the star" of the Rams mini-camp and was been "consistent" during OTAs.
