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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

The Los Angeles Daily News' Rich Hammond reports third-round WR Cooper Kupp "was the star of this month’s Rams rookie mini-camp."

Kupp has made a habit of showing well on the practice field -- he buoyed his draft stock by dominating during Senior Bowl practices. While athletically limited, Kupp did break the all-division college record for career receiving yards (6,464), and the Rams do not have much talent at receiver. He has a path to early targets.

Rams selected Eastern Washington WR Cooper Kupp with the No. 69 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Kupp (6’2/204) originally walked on at EWU, yet went on to start 52-of-52 games and earn FCS Offensive Player of the Year as both a junior and senior, breaking the all-division college record for career receiving yards (6,464) on 428 receptions (15.1 YPR) with 73 touchdowns. Kupp also scored three times on punt returns. Strictly a slot receiver in the Eagles’ wide-open spread, Kupp carries "system player" concerns after running 4.62 in Indy. Turning 24 in July, Kupp is also old for an incoming NFL rookie. Not big or athletic enough to win outside, Kupp is ticketed for an interior receiver role in the pros. PFF College has compared Kupp to ex-Bengals slot WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Despite his limitations, Kupp could be heavily targeted early in the Rams talent-bare receiver corps.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora expects Eastern Washington WR Cooper Kupp to go in the second round.

La Canfora believes teams could try to trade up to the top of Day 2 to land Kupp. Kupp lit up the Senior Bowl before disappointing at the Combine, showing 4.62 speed. Across the board, he tested as a below-average athlete for an NFL receiver. Nevertheless, La Canfora reports Kupp is drawing "a lot" of Julian Edelman comparisons. Edelman posted better metrics coming out of Kent State.

Eastern Washington WR Cooper Kupp managed a 4.62 forty-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

A star at the Senior Bowl, Kupp was exposed as a sub-par athlete in Indy. Measuring in at 6-foot-2, 204 pounds, Kupp ran slow, managed a disappointing 31-inch vertical, and showed a distinct lack of lower-body explosion with a 9-foot-8 broad jump. Many tight ends in this class will beat Kupp's athletic marks at much higher weights. At one point discussed as a potential first-round pick, Kupp realistically profiles as more of a fringe second-/third-day selection.
