Cooper Kupp caught 5-of-7 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 14 loss to the Eagles.
The 100-yard game was Kupp's second in three weeks. He had a 64-yard grab where he did major damage after the catch. Three of Kupp's four-highest yardage totals have come since Thanksgiving. The production binge has also coincided with Robert Woods' (shoulder) absence. Woods is expected back for Week 15 in Seattle, which would make Kupp more of a WR3 than the WR2 he's been producing as of late. Dec 10 - 8:21 PM

Cooper Kupp came down with five catches for 68 yards on six targets Sunday in the Rams’ Week 13 win over the Cardinals.

He was surprisingly out-targeted by Todd Gurley, who led the team with 84 receiving yards. Kupp did almost all of his damage before halftime, coming down with three catches for 55 yards in the first half. His longest catch came on Jared Goff’s first pass from scrimmage, gathering 25 yards on a throw down the left sideline. The impressive rookie will be a borderline WR2 if Robert Woods (shoulder) sits next week against the Eagles.
Dec 3 - 8:41 PM

Cooper Kupp caught 8-of-11 targets for 116 yards in the Rams' Week 12 win over the Saints.

It was a career day across the board, with each of Kupp's catches, targets and yards being new season highs. The 100-yard effort was the first of his NFL career. There was a bit of a fluke element to it, as Kupp's long gain of 53 yards came after Kenny Vaccaro mysteriously quit on the route. It appeared like he may have lost the ball in the sun. Either way, Kupp was the Rams' main means of moving the ball in a game where they went pass heavy against a secondary missing its top two corners. Even if Robert Woods (shoulder) misses another game, the sledding will be tougher against the Cardinals in Week 13.
Nov 26 - 7:49 PM

Cooper Kupp caught 6-of-7 targets for 64 yards in the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Vikings.

It's a solid PPR day for the rookie, but he had an awful real-life game. At the end of one of his catches, Kupp lost a fumble at the Vikings' two-yard line when the game was still tied 7-7 in the first half. It flipped the momentum, and the Rams never again flirted with the end zone. He also committed an awful drop on a 3rd-and-10 pass that would have set the Rams up in the red zone. Kupp gets a good draw against the Saints as the Rams' slot man in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 5:56 PM

Cooper Kupp hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 47 yards in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Texans.

Kupp finished tied for second on the team in both targets and catches, but he never managed to convert the big-play or touchdown which would have made his fantasy line look a lot better. That has been a problem all year for the rookie, who has topped 60 yards just once and not since Week 1. Kupp remains a solid play in PPR leagues, but Robert Woods is the better option at this point.
Nov 12 - 7:41 PM

Cooper Kupp caught 3-of-5 targets for 54 yards in the Rams' Week 9 rout of the Giants.

No Rams receiver exceeded five targets in this game as Los Angeles full-on pummeled the Giants into submission early and then pulled their starters in the fourth quarter. Kupp’s best play was a 35-yard gain down the right seam, setting up one of Los Angeles’ seemingly-countless touchdowns. Expect Kupp to have a higher-volume game in Week 10 against the Texans, where he’ll mostly square off with burnable slot CB Kareem Jackson.
Nov 5 - 4:20 PM

Cooper Kupp caught 4-of-10 targets for 51 yards and one touchdown in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

A couple of those targets were off-the-mark balls from Jared Goff. But the two eventually connected on a screen that Kupp took to the end zone. The 10 targets were a season-high for Kupp with Sammy Watkins doing battle with Patrick Peterson a lot of the day. Kupp will be worth considering as a WR3/4 in Week 9 at the Giants when the Rams come out of their bye.
Oct 22 - 5:25 PM

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.
Oct 8 - 7:57 PM

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.
Oct 1 - 5:08 PM

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.
Sep 22 - 12:21 AM

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.
