Puka Nacua In Better Shape Heading Into Sophomore Campaign

Thursday, June 27, 4:16 PM

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua came out of nowhere and delivered arguably the greatest season for a rookie pass-catcher ever. The BYU product caught 105 passes for 1,486 yards and six touchdowns in the regular season and posted 181 yards in his first playoff game. However, the Rams believe he's in better shape and could make strides in Year 2. "His body is totally different," wide receiver coach Eric Yarber said. "He looks just like Cooper. He's lost so much body fat and gained so much lean muscle, which enabled him to move more efficiently now. And he has better body control. But he did exactly what I said. And you're seeing some of the results right now." The 23-year-old was a top-four wideout in PPR leagues last season, and it sounds like he's doing the right things to remain a fantasy football WR1. Although he might see some regression with a fully healthy Cooper Kupp, he should maintain his spike-week upside.

Rome Odunze Signs Rookie Deal

Tuesday, July 16, 2:08 PM

Chicago Bears rookie wide receiver Rome Odunze, the No. 8 overall pick in this year's NFL draft, officially signed his four-year, fully-guaranteed contract worth $22-plus million on Tuesday. The deal includes a $13 million signing bonus and a fifth-year team option. Odunze was clearly one of the top receiving prospects in this year's draft and lands in a favorable position in the Windy City alongside top overall pick and quarterback Caleb Williams. However, fantasy managers in single-year leagues may want to temper expectations for the former Washington Husky, as he'll be competing for targets in his first year in the NFL with DJ Moore and Keenan Allen. The ultra-athletic pass-catcher is still worth a late-round flier, though, as a WR4/5, and he'd be a weekly starter in fantasy lineups if one of Moore or Allen miss time with injury.
