Cooper Kupp had two receptions for 17 yards Thursday in the Los Angeles Rams' 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
Kupp led the Rams in targets through the first two weeks but took a back seat to Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods in this one, having just two balls thrown his way. The rookie's fantasy prospects are trending downward after beginning his career with a six-catch, 76-yard output that included a touchdown.
Kupp brought in both of his targets for 17 yards in Thursday's 41-39 win over the 49ers.
With top receiving duo Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods seeing 14 targets and Todd Gurley garnering 33 total touches, there wasn't much room for anyone else to shine Thursday, hence a second consecutive modest line for Kupp. The Eastern Washington product got off to a fast start with a touchdown in the opener, but he's tallied just five receptions for 50 yards in the subsequent pair of contests. As a likely fourth option at minimum in the passing game on most weeks, Kupp's production will undoubtedly fluctuate, although his route-running acumen and sure hands should occasionally allow him to capitalize on the defensive attention paid to the Rams' top skill players. He'll look to better his production in Week 4 versus the Cowboys.
Kupp caught three of six passes for 33 yards during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Washington.
The rookie's fantasy day would have been a lot better if he wasn't held out of the end zone at the one-yard line in the second quarter. Kupp still led the Rams in targets, and it's encouraging that quarterback Jared Goff looked his way in the red zone. Kupp profiles as a much better option in PPR settings, as he's already a favorite of Goff. Just keep in mind that Kupp will probably continue to have a wide range of outcomes from week to week.
Cooper Kupp had three receptions for 33 yards Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 27-20 loss to the Washington Redskins.
Kupp wasn't able to duplicate the four catches, 76 yards and one touchdown he delivered in last week's NFL debut, but he was targeted an encouraging six times. Having quickly earned the trust of quarterback Jared Goff, the former FCS All-American is putting himself in the WR3 conversation.
Cooper Kupp had four receptions for 76 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 46-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
Kupp, the Rams 3rd-round pick out of FCS Eastern Washington, had a nice debut and should continue to get plenty of opportunities as he develops a rapport with Jared Goff.
