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.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) did not practice all week and is listed as questionable for the NFC Divisional Round game against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Despite not getting in any work during the week, it's hard to imagine Kupp sitting out. With that said, it's fair to wonder how effective he'll be if he plays. If he is unable to play, Robert Woods would become a strong bet for 10 targets, while Van Jefferson would likely handle the majority of slot snaps Kupp usually gets. If Kupp is made inactive, Cam Akers and Woods will be the only Rams worth using in most fantasy formats.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is dealing with bursitis of the knee, but he is expected to be fine for the NFC Divisional Round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 16 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Kupp will be needed if the Rams want to spring the road upset against the rest and top-seed Packers on the road. He is a tremendous PPR option for fantasy owners in postseason leagues, and a nice DFS play as well. However, watch his progress during practice this week before pulling the trigger on him.
