Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) got in a full practice on Wednesday as his team began preparing to take on the Cleveland Browns in Week 13. Kupp was quiet in Week 12 as he caught just three passes for 18 yards but his ability to practice fully on Wednesday shows that he is not having issues stemming from the low-ankle sprain he suffered in Week 11. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks in practice for the remainder of the week, it looks like Kupp will be all systems go heading into Week 13.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp continued to disappoint in the team's 37-14 win against the Arizona Cardinals. Kupp caught three of his five targets for just 18 yards in Week 12. He has not exceeded five catches or 50 yards in a single game since Week 6. This has been the worst stretch of Kupp's NFL career and it is time to start lowering expectations if you have him rostered. Expecting some sort of a turnaround, consider Kupp as a low-end to mid-range WR2 in his Week 13 matchup with the Cleveland Browns.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) was removed from the team's injury report ahead of their Week 12 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals. Kupp suffered a low ankle sprain in the second quarter of the team's Week 11 win against the Seattle Seahawks, causing him to miss over half the game. His full participation in practice and avoiding an injury designation heading into the game is a very positive sign for those rostering him. Despite his poor fantasy production over the last month, Kupp should be considered a high-end WR2 with WR1 upside as always.

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) will play in Week 12 on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Kupp suffered a low right-ankle sprain in the Week 11 win over the Seattle Seahawks and didn't play at all in the second half, but he returned to a limited practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday and appears ready to go for this weekend. It's a mild surprise given the 30-year-old's history with ankle injuries. However, there's a chance he could still have his snaps somewhat limited come game day on Sunday, although we don't recommend benching him entirely in a solid matchup against Arizona's secondary. Rookie Puka Nacua (shoulder) should also play against the Cardinals in Week 12, giving quarterback Matthew Stafford more upside as a QB2.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity on Thursday. Meanwhile, fellow wide receiver Puka Nacua (shoulder) upgraded to a full participant. Both players have made progress through just two practices this week, though Nacua is far more likely to play than Kupp at this point. The Rams are being careful with Kupp given his injury history and would likely need him to log a full practice before they can remove him from the injury report. In the event that Kupp doesn't play, Nacua would jump to the low-end WR1 tier ahead of Sunday's clash with the Arizona Cardinals.

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) will not practice on Wednesday. Kupp suffered a right low-ankle sprain in the first half of the Week 11 win over the Seattle Seahawks and didn't return in the second half. The Rams are listing him as day-to-day, but a missed practice to kick off Week 12 preparations isn't a good start. LA is hopeful the 30-year-old won't miss any time, but fantasy managers should consider Kupp to be truly questionable for a Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals in the late window this Sunday. A hamstring injury already caused Kupp to miss the first four games of 2023. If he's out or limited this weekend, rookie Puka Nacua (shoulder) and Tutu Atwell would serve as the team's top two wideouts in a solid matchup. We'll keep a close eye on Kupp's participation the rest of the week.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) is considered day-to-day with a low-ankle sprain that he suffered in the 17-16 Week 11 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, according to sources. Given Kupp's history with ankle injuries, the Rams will be careful with him as they determine if he can play in Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday. Kupp didn't play at all in the second half, but the fact that he tried to return to Sunday's game against Seattle could be a sign that it's not that serious. Still, fantasy managers should already have some backup plans ready in case he cannot play in Week 12. If Kupp is out or limited at all, it should mean higher ceilings for rookie Puka Nacua and Tutu Atwell and also potentially tight end Tyler Higbee. Closely monitor Kupp's practice statuses this week.
Nov 20, 2023 5:33 PM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) won't return to Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks. The wideout, who caught his only target for 11 yards, exited in the first half with an ankle injury. Of course, the situation isn't ideal, considering Kupp missed the first four games of the 2023-24 campaign because of a hamstring injury. Nonetheless, fantasy managers will eagerly await an update ahead of the Week 12 contest versus the Arizona Cardinals. If Kupp doesn't suit up for that one, Austin Trammell, Tutu Atwell, and Puka Nacua should see more targets.
Nov 19, 2023 6:45 PM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's NFC West meeting with the Seahawks. There wasn't much clarity surrounding the nature of the injury. However, Kupp, who had one catch for 11 yards, was observed on the sidelines before eventually walking back to the locker room. If he doesn't return in Week 11, Puka Nacua and Tutu Atwell would likely see an increase in attention from Matthew Stafford.
Nov 19, 2023 5:54 PM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp is coming off the worst three-game stretch of his NFL career. The 30-year-old All-Pro is averaging just over 32 yards per game during that stretch, along with no trips to the endzone. After missing quarterback Matthew Stafford (thumb) in Week 9, Kupp will get the veteran back this week while looking to bounce back from his underwhelming performances. The team now faces the Seattle Seahawks in Week 11, who have allowed the 10th-most receptions to opposing wide receivers on the year. Kupp should be considered a high-end WR2 with WR1 upside as always.
Nov 19, 2023 12:25 AM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp was quiet once again in the team's 20-3 Week 9 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The 30-year-old caught just two of his seven targets from quarterback Brett Rypien for 48 receiving yards. While this could be heavily attributed to the absence of Matthew Stafford (thumb), Kupp has struggled for three straight games and should not be relied on as the high-end WR1 he usually is going forward. Considering Stafford's injury and uncertainty for next week, treat Kupp as a low-end WR2 in his Week 10 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
Nov 5, 2023 6:07 PM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp is coming off the worst two-game stretch of his NFL career. Kupp has caught just six of 17 targets for 50 yards through the last two weeks. Adding salt to the wound, his quarterback Matthew Stafford (thumb) is not expected to suit up in the team's Week 9 matchup with the Green Bay Packers. As a result, 27-year-old Brett Rypien will start and attempt to keep the Rams' pass catchers involved. Kupp should still be considered a must-start in all leagues, strictly betting on his talent with Stafford out.
Nov 5, 2023 1:28 AM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp put together another disappointing performance in the team's Week 8 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Kupp caught four of his 10 targets for just 21 receiving yards. He now has back-to-back games with under 30 receiving yards for the first time in his NFL career. While the 30-year-old did have a tough matchup against Dallas, these performances are a bit concerning going forward. Kupp and the Rams now travel to Green Bay to face the 2-5 Packers in Week 8. Still, treat the former All-Pro as a low-end WR1 and expect a bounce-back game.
Oct 29, 2023 5:26 PM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp had one of the worst receiving performances of his NFL career in Week 7. The former All-Pro receiver caught just two of his seven targets for 29 yards in the team's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, this could be attributed to the fact that the Rams threw the ball under 30 times and that Puka Nacua hogged the majority of targets. This performance should not deter those rostering Kupp from confidently firing him up as a high-end WR1 weekly. Do this without hesitation as he faces the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8.
Oct 29, 2023 2:14 AM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp had one of his worst performances over the last few seasons during the team's 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The former All-Pro caught just two of his seven targets for 29 receiving yards. This was largely because the team only threw the ball 29 times and Puka Nacua was Matthew Stafford's go-to guy all game long. Despite the performance, Kupp is still one of the league's best receivers and should be played as such. He is a high-end WR1 as always in the team's Week 8 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.
Oct 22, 2023 9:16 PM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp has not disappointed in the two games since his return from injury. The All-Pro receiver out of Eastern. Washington has caught 15-of-21 targets for 266 yards and one touchdown through the last two weeks. The connection between him and Matthew Stafford has not lost a beat and Kupp is proving to be worth the high fantasy draft pick many spent on him, despite missing four games. Kupp is a high-end WR1 and top-three start at the position in his Week 7 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Oct 21, 2023 3:38 AM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp could not be guarded in the team's Week 6 win against the Arizona Cardinals. The 30-year-old caught seven of his nine targets for 148 yards and a trip to the end zone. He now has over 100 receiving yards in each of the two games since his return and is the clear number-one target for Matthew Stafford once again. Kupp is a sure-fire WR1 as always and is locked in as a top-three start at the position weekly. Confidently start Kupp with the expectation of another monster game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7.
Oct 15, 2023 8:57 PM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp appeared in his first game of the season last week after missing the first four due to a hamstring injury. The 30-year-old did not have any limitations whatsoever catching eight of his 12 targets for 118 yards, while he played 95% of all offensive snaps. Rookie wide receiver Puka Nacua was still heavily involved in the offense, showing that both can thrive while on the field together. The Rams now face the 1-4 Arizona Cardinals in Week 6. As this should be a given by now, Kupp is a high-end WR1 anytime he's on the field and should be treated as such this week.
Oct 15, 2023 3:23 AM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp returned to action after missing the first four games of the season with a hamstring injury. Kupp immediately took on his full-time role with no limitations in the team's Week 5 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He looked as healthy as ever and led the team in targets in his very first game back. The All-Pro receiver caught eight of his 12 targets for 118 yards. As long as Kupp is playing and healthy, he should be treated as a high-end WR1, especially in his Week 6 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
Oct 8, 2023 9:51 PM EST
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (hamstring) is active for Week 5 versus the Philadelphia Eagles and is not expected to have any limitations, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. The star receiver should see a full workload in his first game back, making him an immediate WR1 for fantasy purposes. His return could lead to a slight decline in production from breakout rookie Puka Nacua, but he, too, is still worth starting in all leagues. All in all, the Rams will have their top weapons available as they take on the reigning NFC champions on Sunday.
