Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp registered nine receptions for a game-high 130 yards and two touchdowns on 12 targets in Week 6 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Kupp had his third two-touchdown game while going for 100 or more yards in three of his outings. He also has at least seven receptions in five of six contests. He remains a top-notch PPR fantasy option, but also a WR1 in all other formats as well. The Rams host the Detroit Lions in Week 7 in another favorable matchup.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught seven passes for 92 yards against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: After working as the clear top option in LA's offense, Kupp took a backseat to Robert Woods Thursday night, being targeted 10 times to Woods' 14. He still posted solid numbers, and now Kupp has caught seven or more passes for 90-plus yards in four of his five games. On the downside, Kupp has gone two games without a score after notching five TDs over the first three weeks. One thing to keep an eye on is that Kupp looked to have an issue with his shoulder in the closing moments. There was nothing about it in the post-game comments, but it's something to file away just in case.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp leads the NFL with 46 targets, and he has been targeted at least 10 times in all four games.
Huddle Up: Kupp has quickly emerged as Matthew Stafford's favorite target, and the heavy workload has him sitting third in receiving yards and tied for second in receptions. He has become a weekly WR1.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp corralled nine of his 12 targets for 96 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: In case you haven't been counting, Kupp has at least seven catches, 10 targets and 96 yards receiving in every game so far. He is the 34th player in NFL history with at least five TD grabs through three games and the first since Larry Fitzgerald in 2015. The overall WR1 in fantasy right now is an obvious start and should be poised for another big game in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught nine of his 11 targets for 163 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2.
Huddle Up: We are two games into the Matthew Stafford, in Los Angeles and Kupp appears to be his go-to target. It's early, but Kupp seems to have a shot at a WR1 campaign.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp hauled in seven of his 10 targets for 108 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Kupp was less than a yard shy of a second score. The Sunday Night Football crew talked about how Kupp and Matthew Stafford regularly spend about two hours together each morning before practice and the chemistry in Week 1 was apparent. For what it's worth, most of Kupp's production came on a blown coverage in the third quarter in which Kupp got behind the defense for a 56-yard TD. He should remain firmly in the low-end WR1/high-end WR2 discussion, including Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp said Wednesday, June 2, that it was a Morel-Lavalle'e lesion -- in which skin and tissue separate from underlying tissue -- in his knee which kept him out of the team's NFC divisional round playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers in January. Kupp added, though, that he has had no issues afterward, and is 'feeling great' as he participates in the team's offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Kupp had a fantasy down year in 2020 following his top-10 WR season the season before, and it was mainly due to his dropoff from 10 to three receiving TDs. If he stays healthy, Kupp has legit WR2 bounce-back potential with new QB Matthew Stafford now under center.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led all receivers with 21 avoided tackles after receptions in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Kupp finished just shy of 1,000 yards last year, but he topped 90 catches for the second season in a row. His touchdown total dipped from 10 to three, but the addition of quarterback Matthew Stafford should raise Kupp's ceiling. Consider him a WR2 with upside.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) on Saturday, Jan. 16, was declared inactive for the divisional-round playoff game with the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: A big blow to Jared Goff and the Rams' offense as the team's leading receiver will miss his second game in the last three weeks. It also means that there figures to be more targets to go around for fellow wideouts Robert Woods, Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson along with TEs Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is considered a 'true game-time decision' for the NFC Divisional Round game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Jan. 16, according to a source. The team is not expected to make a final decision on his status until pregame warmups.
Huddle Up: Kupp did not practice at all during the week because of knee bursitis but was listed as questionable on the injury report. Fantasy owners who are considering using Kupp for their lineups this weekend should continue to monitor updates on his status leading up to the game. If he is declared inactive, WR Robert Woods is a good bet to see at least 10 targets versus the Packers tonight, with WR Van Jefferson likely to see the majority of slot snaps that would normally go to Kupp.
