Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught all four of his targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16, and he has caught a touchdown in four straight games.
Huddle Up: Kupp's yardage totals have been down recently, but he has still topped 1,000 yards and is up to nine scores. He's at least a WR2.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught six passes for 41 yards and a touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Dec. 15.
Huddle Up: This was the sixth straight game that Kupp has failed to top 100 yards receiving, which is a major disappointment after he opened the year with 100-plus yards in five of his first eight. On the bright side, Kupp has scored in three straight games and remains a decent WR2.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp played only 20 of a possible 68 snaps in Week 14 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: By comparison, Kupp logged 57 snaps in Week 13. Head coach Sean McVay defended the move by suggesting it was the cost of doing business in order to establish some offensive balance on early downs. However, the flaw in that reasoning is that Kupp's playing time should not be cut in favor of backup tight end Johnny Mundt. Expect Kupp to return to his normal snap count in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught all four of his targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Kupp's fantasy owners are likely to be furious once they find out he played less than 40 percent of the team's offensive snaps in this one, at least according to Next Gen Stats. Since erupting for a 7-220-1 line against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8, Kupp has amassed 19 catches for 198 yards and two TDs over his last five games combined. If his reduced role is starting to become a thing, he's going to be hard to trust as anything more than a WR3 in Week 15 versus the Dallas Cowboys.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught all six of his targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in a 34-7 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Kupp has had some quieter performances in recent weeks, but he managed a solid line against the Cardinals. The trend could continue against Seattle in Week 14. Kupp had nine grabs for 117 yards and a touchdown against the Seahawks in the first meeting.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp posted six receptions for 35 yards in the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Kupp blew up for 220 yards and a touchdown against the lowly Bengals in London on Oct. 27, but he has just 19 grabs for 155 yards and no scores across his past five games on North American soil. He'll look to bounce back in Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals, but at this point he is more like a WR3 in PPR leagues at this point.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught three passes for 53 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 11.
Huddle Up: An absolute beast to start the season, Kupp has topped 55 yards receiving in a game just once in his last five as the Rams' offense has struggled to even be close to what it was in 2018. Although it may sound counter-intuitive, Kupp would benefit from fellow high-end targets Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods as they command attention and let Kupp win one-on-one matchups. For now, he's a WR2 with weekly upside.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (illness) is dealing with a 'stomach bug' and was not at practice Friday, Nov. 15, but he is expected to play in Week 11 versus the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: NFL players almost always play through minor illnesses, and head coach Sean McVay didn't seem overly concerned about Kupp's status when he met with reporters Friday. The third-year wideout is coming off a zero-catch performance in Week 10 in which he saw a fair amount of bracket coverage despite working out of the slot. Expect the Rams to make a concerted effort to feed him the ball against the Bears and produce at a low-end WR1 level.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp failed to catch any of his four targets in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Kupp didn't help himself with a couple of drops, but it speaks to the ineffectiveness of Jared Goff and the offense in general that he wasn't more of a priority against an opponent with the pass-rushing prowess of the Steelers. Fantasy owners need to file this one away as one to forget and keep Kupp in their lineups in Week 11 versus the Chicago Bears.
