Robert Woods caught 5-of-7 targets for 59 yards in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Cardinals.
Woods has caught at least five balls in four of the last five games and has managed at least 59 yards in those contests. Woods has settled in as a usable WR4 in PPR leagues for owners looking for bye-week help. Woods will fill that same role in Week 9 against the Giants following the Rams' open date. Oct 22 - 5:18 PM

Robert Woods caught 5-of-7 targets for 70 yards in the Rams' Week 6 win over the Jaguars.

Woods has now posted 66 yards or more in three of his past four games. He's become a comforting target for Jared Goff as the sophomore quarterback retreats into some of his rookie ways. Even with Patrick Peterson likely to shadow Sammy Watkins in Week 7, Woods won't offer more than bottom-barrel WR4 appeal against the Cardinals.
Oct 15 - 7:46 PM

Robert Woods caught 5-of-8 targets for 66 yards in the Rams' Week 5 loss to the Seahawks.

Woods added an eight-yard rush. The 66 yards were Woods' second most of the season. Woods has established himself as a weekly factor in the Rams' offense, but it's unlikely to translate to fantasy reliability, especially with Los Angeles' schedule stiffening.
Oct 8 - 8:04 PM

Robert Woods caught 2-of-6 targets for 17 yards in the Rams' Week 4 win over the Cowboys.

We're not entirely sure why a would-be third-quarter touchdown catch by Woods was negated, but it was nevertheless. Woods has been up and down along with fellow Rams perimeter WR Sammy Watkins, who finished Sunday's game with one catch on two targets. Woods is a WR4/5 entering a Week 5 date with the Seahawks.
Oct 1 - 5:03 PM

Robert Woods caught 6-of-7 targets for 108 yards against the 49ers in Week 3.

He led the Rams receivers in snaps for the first two games and he was even out there in one-wide sets near the goal line tonight. As impressive as this line is after a one-catch Week 2, the Rams do look to be involving Sammy Watkins more and running the rock will be essential to their success, so Woods will have tough time matching this output most weeks. Unless Watkins does have a concussion and needs to miss time, Woods isn't really a great fantasy pickup after this one.

Robert Woods grabbed one-of-four targets for eight yards Sunday in the Rams’ Week 2 loss to the Redskins.

His only catch came in the second half. Woods buried the Rams late in the game, pushing them back with a pair of inexcusable penalties on the same drive. Through two games, the former Bill has pulled in just four-of-nine targets for 61 yards with no touchdowns. He’ll hope for a better outing Thursday in San Francisco.
Sep 17 - 8:54 PM

Robert Woods collected three catches for 53 yards on five targets Sunday in the Rams’ Week 1 win over the Colts.

Woods' return to the L.A. Coliseum was a good one. Four of his five targets came in the first half, though his longest catch came on a 27-yard crossing route early in the third quarter. Woods will flash from time to time, but it’s unlikely he’ll emerge as someone fantasy owners can trust on a weekly basis, particularly in an offense that also includes Todd Gurley, Sammy Watkins and ascendant slot receiver Cooper Kupp.
Sep 10 - 8:34 PM

Robert Woods caught 2-of-2 targets for 23 yards in the Rams' third preseason game.

It was an extremely disappointing night for Woods in the context of Cooper Kupp's (groin) absence. Kupp is looking like Goff and coach Sean McVay's preferred underneath target. Woods will close the book on the summer with five catches for 47 yards. He offers very little 2017 upside.
Aug 26 - 11:46 PM

Sammy Watkins' presence will be a downgrade for Robert Woods' fantasy production.

Woods was never hugely appealing for fantasy purposes with Jared Goff as his quarterback, but at least his volume was relatively safe with little to no competition for targets. That all changed in one fell swoop Friday when the Rams acquired Watkins in a blockbuster trade with Buffalo. Woods is all too familiar with Watkins, having spent the last three years playing beside him in Orchard Park. Even with Watkins constantly injured, Woods never topped 700 yards receiving in those three seasons and that was with Tyrod Taylor, who has proven to be far superior to Goff, under center. Once considered a dart-throw WR4, Woods can probably go undrafted in most formats now.
Aug 11 - 1:34 PM

Robert Woods said he wants to be the "No. 1 receiver."

It is an achievable goal. Woods played a secondary role in Buffalo, but he is in position to see a much larger target share atop a Rams depth chart filled with young and complementary players. Almost certain to lead the team in targets, Woods has the look of a late-round value pick in PPR formats.
May 27 - 11:47 AM

ESPN Rams reporter Alden Gonzalez believes WR Robert Woods is "perhaps the best bet to lead the 2017 Rams in catches".

The Rams signed Woods to be Jared Goff's primary target after letting Kenny Britt walk. Woods is spending extra time with Goff before OTAs, working on routes and timing and studying fil. The WR64 in MFL ADP, Woods is a solid flier at the back end of drafts. He should see 100-plus targets as the Rams' default WR1.

Rams agreed to terms with Robert Woods, formerly of the Bills, on a five-year, $39-million contract.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal contains $15 million guaranteed. It is a nice chunk of change for a receiver who has never topped 700 yards in a season, but that will likely change in what could be a pass-heavy attack under new coach Sean McVay. Even with Woods locked up, the Rams need to add more weapons to the passing game.
Mar 9 - 11:17 AM

Impending free agent Robert Woods said he is content with the No. 2 role in Buffalo.

"Sammy [Watkins] deserves being the number one," Woods said. "As long as we are progressing, moving the ball down the field and making plays, I have no problem with that." The comments suggest he is open to re-signing with the Bills, who have no receiving talent behind Watkins and Woods. The former second rounder has averaged 51 catches for 613 yards and three touchdowns his four years in Buffalo.
Feb 25 - 9:10 AM

WKBW Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia ultimately expects impending free agent Robert Woods to price himself out of the Bills' range.

The Bills have a ton of free agents (23 to be exact) to make decisions on, and they're obviously not going to be able to re-sign everybody. On top of that, Buffalo is currently in the bottom 25 percent of the league in available cap space. Woods hasn't been all that productive since being a 2013 second-round pick, yet he's likely to command $7-8 million per year on a new deal due to inflation of the salary cap. The Bills need weapons, but they should aim higher than Woods.
Feb 7 - 8:59 PM

Robert Woods delivered four catches for 43 yards on five targets Sunday in the Bills' Week 17 loss to the Jets.

Woods entered the league with huge expectations following a standout college career at USC. Since then he’s been an enormous letdown, failing to top 700 yards in any of his four seasons. Woods had a few productive weeks including a monster Week 9 that included 10 catches for a career-high 162 yards in a loss to Seattle. But those moments were few and far between. Woods also missed a chunk of the season while battling a knee injury. He could definitely use a change of scenery and will probably get one when he hits the free agent market this offseason.
