Cooper Kupp Listed As Offseason Standout

Saturday, June 29, 1:27 PM

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.

Eagles Sign DeVonta Smith To Three-Year Extension

Monday, April 15, 10:50 AM

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith has agreed to a three-year $75 million contract extension that includes $51 million in guaranteed money. The organization also picked up his fifth-year option, so he is now under contract through the 2028 NFL season. Despite playing alongside All-Pro wideout A.J. Brown, Smith has been spectacular since entering the league in 2021. The former Heisman Trophy winner has racked up 240 receptions for 3,178 yards and 19 touchdowns through his first three pro campaigns. Smith is just 25 years old, so he should be in the thick of his prime through the duration of his new contract. He remains a WR2 in fantasy football moving forward.
