Reynolds isn't expected to sign an extension with the Rams, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: While the 25-year-old receiver finished the season with career-high totals in receptions (52), receiving yards (618) and offensive snaps (803), he never fully took advantage of his role as the No. 3 receiver in the offense. Reynolds was a hopeful deep threat but only had one reception for over 40 yards, and he matched his yard-per-target mark of 7.6 from his previous two seasons. He should receive some attention in the free-agent market, but Reynolds is unlikely to elevate beyond being a supporting and/or depth receiver.
Reynolds recorded three receptions on four targets for 65 yards in the Rams' divisional-round loss to the Packers.
Analysis: Reynolds saw an increased role in the absence of Cooper Kupp (knee) and took advantage by leading the team in receiving yards. He operated effectively over the middle of the field, racking up receptions of 28 and 21 yards. After recording 52 receptions for 618 yards and two touchdowns across 16 games in the regular season, Reynolds will hit the free agent market for the first time in his career this offseason.
Reynolds played 43 of 73 offensive snaps but didn't receive a target during Saturday's 30-20 win over Seattle.
Analysis: The Rams only attacked vertically 25 times and completed just 12 passes, so there wasn't a lot of work available for Reynolds and the rest of the receiving corps. While it's likely Los Angeles will need to air it out more often in the Divisional Round against the Packers, Reynolds has been held to just 22 receptions for 202 yards over the past eight games. The fourth-year receiver is likely best viewed as a high-risk, medium-reward fantasy option against Green Bay.
Reynolds caught four of his six targets for 29 yards during Sunday's 18-7 win over Arizona.
Analysis: There were more looks in the passing attack with Cooper Kupp (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but it was rookie Van Jefferson who received the more notable statistical uptick. While Reynolds set career-high marks in receptions (52), receiving yards (618) and offensive snaps (748) this season, the fourth-year receiver wasn't able to carve out a consistent enough role in the Los Angeles offense to be a reliable asset in most settings. Kupp is expected to return for the wild-card matchup against Seattle, so Reynolds will probably remain a risky fantasy option.
Reynolds caught six of 10 targets for 65 yards and rushed once for five yards during Sunday's 20-9 loss to Seattle.
Analysis: After receiving just four targets over the previous three games, this was a noticeable boost in opportunities for Reynolds. However, his Week 17 outlook probably isn't favorable after quarterback Jared Goff (thumb) underwent surgery Monday. If Goff is unable to suit up, backup QB John Walford projects to start, but Walford hasn't seen competitive action since the 2019 preseason. Looking ahead to 2021, it's worth noting that Reynolds is in the final year of his rookie contract.
Reynolds caught both his targets for nine yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Jets.
Analysis: After being targeted 39 times during a five-game stretch from Week 7 through 12, Reynolds has just four receptions for 36 yards on five targets the past three weeks. The Rams are utilizing 12 personnel more frequently, and the fourth-year wide receiver's numbers have taken a noticeable hit as a result. It's likely best to consider Reynolds a desperation start in the majority of fantasy settings in Week 16.
Reynolds caught a six-yard reception during Thursday's 24-3 win over New England. He played 35 offensive snaps and was targeted twice.
Analysis: Reynolds dropped an accurate pass from quarterback Jared Goff in the second quarter before securing his only other target with Los Angeles up 17-3 in the third frame. The Rams went on to score during the same drive, and then Goff only attempted three passes in the fourth quarter. Reynolds has been limited to just two receptions for 27 yards over the past two weeks, and with LA rushing effectively in 12 personnel during the noted stretch, the fourth-year receivers' targets and snaps could remain low. His fantasy value is trending in the wrong direction.
Reynolds caught his only target for 21 yards during Sunday's 38-28 win over Arizona.
Analysis: The fourth-year receiver saw his playing time decrease Sunday with rookie Van Jefferson playing two more offensive snaps and receiving five targets. It's likely a sign of things to come, as Reynolds is in the final year of his rookie contract. A second-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, Jefferson is also probably a more promising talent. Still, Reynolds isn't going to disappear from the offensive game plan, and it's most likely he and Jefferson see a similar snap and target share moving forward. It's a definite hit to Reynolds' immediate fantasy value, and his long-term outlook is also uninspiring. It's unlikely he is anything more than a supporting receiver again in 2021, especially if he is re-signed by Los Angeles.
Reynolds caught five of six targets for 40 yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to San Francisco.
Analysis: The fourth-year receiver has turned 39 targets into 24 receptions for 262 yards and a touchdown through the past five games. Those numbers don't jump off the page, but Reynolds is still proving to be a serviceable asset in deep fantasy settings. Additionally, while fellow wide receivers Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have higher ceilings, Reynolds' production floor has been consistent during the noted stretch.
Reynolds caught three of six targets for 32 yards during Monday's 27-24 win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: The fourth-year receiver is up to a respectable 19 receptions, 222 yards and a touchdown on 33 targets over the past four weeks. So, while it wasn't a big fantasy showing Monday, Reynolds remained involved and actually played the second most offensive snaps (65 of 72) among Los Angeles wide receivers. His 18-yard catch in the third quarter also set up the Rams' touchdown to pull ahead 24-17. Additionally, quarterback Jared Goff looked Reynolds' way twice more on deep routes following the TD. All said, Reynolds appears locked into a prominent role, but he's probably one of the least talented options in the Los Angeles passing attack. Additionally, it's worth noting that head coach Sean McVay and Goff looked rookie Van Jefferson's way for a touchdown in the second quarter to tie the game at 14-14.
Reynolds caught eight of 10 targets for 94 yards in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Seahawks.
Analysis: While the Rams did all their scoring on the ground with three TD runs from inside the 10-yard line, they moved the ball effectively through the air, and Reynolds surprisingly led the team in catches, targets and yards while posting more receiving yards than Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods combined. Reynolds will likely have a hard time putting together a repeat performance in Week 11 on the road against the Buccaneers, however.
Reynolds brought in four of nine targets for 44 yards in the Rams' 28-17 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.
Analysis: Six days after seeing a season-high eight targets against the Bears, Reynolds beat that tally by one Sunday while also equaling his season high in receptions. The fourth-year wideout drew even with Gerald Everett for a distant second on the day in looks behind Cooper Kupp's astounding 21, and it appears his profile in the air attack appears to be on an upswing. Reynolds will be a player to monitor in Week 10 against the Seahawks following a Week 9 bye.
Reynolds caught four of eight targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 24-10 win over the Bears.
Analysis: Reynolds led the Rams in targets and receiving yards while finding the end zone for the second straight game. Compared to his 40-yarder in Week 6, however, Reynolds' score Monday came from just four yards out. Nonetheless, with at least 45 receiving yards in four of his last five outings, Reynolds is building decent steam ahead of this Sunday's game against the Dolphins, with his recent touchdowns adding extra interest.
Reynolds caught two of his five targets for 45 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-16 loss to San Francisco.
Analysis: The score was Reynolds' first of the season and came with just 3:24 left in the fourth quarter to bring the Rams within one score of the 49ers. The catch was also all the more impressive because the fourth-year receiver fought through pass interference from 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Moseley to haul in the 40-yard deep ball. Still, prospective fantasy managers will want to keep expectations in check. This was just the second touchdown reception over the past two years for Reynolds, and he's still firmly behind Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp on the wide receiver depth chart. Additionally, tight ends Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett are both active in the passing attack and combined for eight targets Sunday.
Reynolds caught two of four targets for 46 yards during Sunday's 30-10 win over Washington.
Analysis: Despite being the clear No. 3 receiver for the Rams, Reynolds isn't making much of a fantasy impact. He played 49 of 68 offensive snaps Sunday, but there are just too many weapons in the Los Angeles offense for him to pad his stat line. As it stands, it'll likely take an injury to Cooper Kupp or Robert Woods for Reynolds to be a reliable factor in the passing attack. Tight end Gerald Everett is also beginning to be more involved in the offense, which is another knock on Reynolds' outlook for the immediate future.
Reynolds caught three of four targets for 25 yards during Sunday's 17-9 win over the Giants. He played 30 of 57 offensive snaps.
Analysis: After splitting time with rookie Van Jefferson through the first two weeks of the season, Reynolds has played 92 offensive snaps to Jefferson's 11 the past two games. Reynolds is clearly the No. 3 wide receiver on the depth chart for the time being, and while it hasn't translated into significant fantasy production, the fourth-year wideout has a respectable seven receptions for 85 yards through the past two weeks. In deep settings, he's a player to keep an eye on and would obviously gain value if injuries struck the Los Angeles receiving corps.
Reynolds (illness) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Analysis: Reynolds didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness, but it looks as though he's already returned to full health. The 25-year-old saw 90 percent of offensive snaps Week 3, and he now looks in line to handle his usual role on offense behind Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods during Sunday's game against the Giants.
Reynolds (illness) didn't practice Wednesday, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Analysis: Among players not named Cam Akers (ribs) on the Rams' Week 4 injury report, coach Sean McVay expects them to play Sunday versus the Giants. Reynolds has been afforded a significant workload -- including 90 percent of the plays on offense Week 3 in Buffalo -- en route to seven catches (on eight targets) for 110 yards through three games. Look for his status to be clarified by week's end.
Reynolds caught four of his five targets for 60 yards during Sunday's 35-32 loss to Buffalo.
Analysis: This was Reynolds' best showing of the year, and he also played a season-high 62 offensive snaps. Rookie receiver Van Jefferson appeared on the verge of leapfrogging Reynolds on the depth chart, but Sunday's snap share favored the third-year wideout by a large margin. Jefferson only played eight offensive snaps. Still, Reynolds is a risky start in the majority of fantasy settings, and Jefferson is also probably the better long-term option for the Rams.
Reynold caught both his targets for 33 yards during Sunday's 37-19 win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: The fourth-year receiver's two targets ranked sixth on the team and fourth among wide outs, so while Reynolds played a respectable 42 of 69 offensive snaps, he didn't have a significant impact. Additionally, with rookie Van Jefferson impressing again Sunday, Reynolds could quickly see himself relegated to fourth on the wide receiver depth chart and playing less. Barring an injury to another Los Angeles receiver, Reynolds' fantasy value is probably on the decline.
