Cooper Kupp Listed As Offseason Standout

ESPN's Sarah Barshop lists Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp as one of the team's most surprising offseason standouts, which even she admits is odd. Kupp, who was the 2021 receiving triple-crown winner, has played through significant injuries in each of the past two seasons. He finished 2023 with 59 catches for 737 yards and five touchdowns, his fewest receiving yards since 2018, when he played in only eight games. However, Kupp is healthy this offseason, and it showed on the practice field. Head coach Sean McVay said during organized team activities that he doesn't think "anyone really understands the amount of things [Kupp was] working through last season" with his injury and that the receiver has been able to build his body "from the ground up." Fantasy managers shouldn't be expecting the 2021 version of Kupp anymore, especially with Puka Nacua in the fold, but if he's healthy, he can still deliver value as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 in 2024.

Cooper Kupp Is Finally Healthy

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (hamstring) was limited to just 12 games in 2023 after dealing with a hamstring injury during the summer and averaged just 61.4 yards per game, the second-lowest mark of his career. He finished with 737 yards and five touchdowns, the second-fewest totals since he entered the league in 2017. Kupp did have four 100-yard games, but it was clear that he was never fully healthy last year. But the 30-year-old says he's fully healthy in 2024 and it's the first time in a while he's felt 100% during the offseason program. Kupp should be able to rebound with better health this year, but he's also no longer a spring chicken and will have to deal with the emergence of fellow receiver Puka Nacua, who had a phenomenal rookie campaign. It's hard to imagine Kupp returning to peak form when led the league in catches (145), yards (1,947) and touchdowns (16) in 2021.

Cooper Kupp Quiet In Wildcard Loss

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp did not produce much in the team's 24-23 wildcard loss to the Detroit Lions. Kupp caught five of his nine targets for just 27 yards. In his final game of the season, he finished with the sixth-most receiving yards on the team and did not end on a strong note. It has been clear that rookie WR Puka Nacua has overtaken Kupp as the team's number one receiver and that should be expected to remain going forward. Consider the former All-Pro as a high-end WR2 in fantasy drafts next season.

Cooper Kupp Back In Playoff Action

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp has taken a backseat to rookie phenom Puka Nacua this season. While Kupp has still had some big games and has been a solid option, he does not offer the same ceiling he once did. However, he has been one of the most dominant playoff performers in recent history. Through six playoff game appearances, the 30-year-old has averaged over 100 receiving yards and one touchdown per game. The team now faces the Detroit Lions on Sunday, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season. While Nacua should still be considered the number one, Kupp is a great DFS option this week.

Cooper Kupp To Rest Up In Week 18

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp will be held out of the Week 18 contest versus the San Francisco 49ers. The Rams are choosing to rest Kupp, quarterback Matthew Stafford, running back Kyren Williams and defensive tackle Aaron Donald despite the fact that they could fall to the No. 7 seed in the NFC with a loss this weekend. Kupp thus finishes his 2023 season with 59 catches on 95 targets for 737 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games played. He put up slightly better numbers in 2022 despite playing in three fewer games, making this year a pretty big disappointment after missing the first four games of the year due to an injury suffered in training camp. With Kupp resting in Week 18, rookie Puka Nacua, Demarcus Robinson and Tutu Atwell will have bigger roles, albeit with Carson Wentz throwing them the pigskin.

Cooper Kupp Gets In Endzone Despite Quiet Day

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp's fantasy day was saved by a touchdown in the team's 26-25 win against the New York Giants. Kupp caught four of his six targets for 27 yards through the air and a touchdown. After getting in the endzone during the first half, Kupp caught just one pass through the entire second half of the game. It has become evident that the All-Pro receiver will not be targeted as heavily as he once was, considering the emergence of rookie phenom Puka Nacua. Treat Kupp as a mid-range WR2 in his Week 18 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

Cooper Kupp A Low-End WR1 In Week 17

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp has played every offensive snap over the last two weeks and looked completely healthy. Over the last four games, Kupp is averaging seven catches for just under 80 yards and a touchdown per game. After the worst stretch of his career, the All-Pro receiver has gotten back on track. He now faces the New York Giants in Week 17, who have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season. Treat Kupp as a low-end WR1 with a relatively safe floor this week.

Cooper Kupp Targeted 12 Times

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp came into this game with a three-game touchdown streak on the line. The veteran wideout saw multiple chances to score in this game. Sadly, quarterback Matthew Stafford missed him on two red zone looks, which was certainly frustrating for fantasy managers. Kupp finished the day with six receptions on 12 targets for 52 yards in the win over the New Orleans Saints. Despite that somewhat disappointing performance, Kupp should remain a WR1 heading into next week's game versus the New York Giants.

Cooper Kupp A Must-Start As Fantasy Playoffs Continue

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp should be started in all fantasy leagues ahead of his Week 16 clash with the New Orleans Saints. While he's no longer the No. 1 fantasy receiver this season, the 30-year-old has been productive when healthy. He overcame a couple of underwhelming midseason games and has returned to must-start territory, amassing 22 catches, 265 yards, and three touchdowns over the last three weeks. As the Rams face the Saints on Thursday night, fantasy managers should be thrilled about the fact that Kupp seems to have found his stride late in the season.

Cooper Kupp Leads Team In Receiving Once Again

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp was productive in the team's Week 15 win against the Washington Commanders. Kupp caught all eight of his targets on the day for 111 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a 62-yard blown coverage deep ball in the third quarter. After an extremely frustrating stretch for the All-Pro receiver, he has put together three straight solid performances. Kupp is back to being an every-week WR1 regardless of the matchup. Treat him as such in a Thursday night matchup against the New Orleans Saints in Week 16.

Cooper Kupp A Low-End WR1 Against Washington

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp has picked it up over the last two weeks after showing inconsistencies. After five straight games with under five catches, 50 yards, and no touchdowns, Kupp has gotten back in rhythm. The All-Pro receiver is averaging seven catches for 77 yards and a touchdown over the last two games. He now faces a Washington Commanders defense that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season. Considering the matchup and his recent production, Kupp should be back in WR1 territory for Week 15.

Cooper Kupp Back To All-Pro Form

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp had his most productive day since Week 5 in the team's 37-31 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Kupp caught eight of his 10 targets for 115 yards and a first-half touchdown. This was his first game since the Week 5 performance with over six catches or 50 yards. After the worst stretch of Kupp's career, he has regained momentum and scored a touchdown in each of the last two games. Consider the star to be back to a WR1 must-start in a soft matchup against the Washington Commanders in Week 15.

Dec 10, 2023 5:30 PM EST


Cooper Kupp A Low-End WR2 In Week 14

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp has not looked like his All-Pro self since Week 5 of this season. Kupp did show some life in Week 13, as it was his first game since Week 5 with over four catches or a touchdown. The 30-year-old now faces the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14, who have allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season. Rookie wide receiver Puka Nacua (shoulder) is good to go for this week's matchup and has been the preferred target for Matthew Stafford as of late. Consider Kupp as a low-end to mid-range WR2 this week.

Cooper Kupp Scores For First Time Since Week 6

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp finally gave some production in the team's 36-19 win against the Cleveland Browns. The former All-Pro caught six of his eight targets for 39 receiving yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown. Kupp was still not his dominant self, but surpassed four catches and got into the endzone for the first time since Week 6. Considering the tough matchup and his recent slump, this stat line is refreshing for those rostering him. In yet another difficult matchup with the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14, consider Kupp as a low-end WR2.

Cooper Kupp A Risky Start In Week 13

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) was removed from the team's injury report ahead of their Week 13 matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Kupp suffered the low-ankle sprain in Week 11 but has been removed from the injury report for two weeks straight. Regardless of his health, the former All-Pro has not put together a great performance since Week 6. He is averaging just over two catches and 25 yards per game over the last five while being scoreless over that time. This has been the worst slump of Kupp's career and you should be cautious when playing him this week.

Dec 3, 2023 3:08 AM EST


Cooper Kupp Practices Fully On Wednesday

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.

Nov 29, 2023 9:31 PM EST


Cooper Kupp Quiet Once Again In Week 12

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.

Nov 26, 2023 8:31 PM EST


Cooper Kupp A High-End WR2 In Week 12

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.

Nov 26, 2023 3:51 AM EST


Cooper Kupp Will Play Against Cardinals

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.

Cooper Kupp, Puka Nacua Both Practice Thursday

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.
