Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught 69 passes while lined up as the slot receiver during the 2019 season, which was tied for the most among wide receivers.
Huddle Up: Kupp likely will receive even more targets this upcoming season with Brandin Cooks gone, but it is not known if he will move to the outside or stay as a slot receiver. He is one of the better options in point-per-reception leagues and should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led the league in 2019 with 853 receiving yards from the slot, according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: It will be interesting to see if Kupp plays outside more now that Brandin Cooks has been traded, and we could see Josh Reynolds working more from the slot. That could hurt some of Kupp's fantasy value, but he's still the best pass-catching fantasy option on the Rams as a WR2.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught 94 of his 134 targets in 2019, good for a reception rate of 70.1 percent. Only New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas had a better percentage (80.5) among qualifying wide receivers (at least 130 targets).
Huddle Up: The No. 2 touchdown-scoring receiver, Kupp finished as WR4 in conventional PPR formats last year. His target count could increase in 2020 after the release of RB Todd Gurley and trade of WR Brandin Cooks. Los Angeles QB Jared Goff already has an eye for Kupp at all three levels, and no offseason program could limit rookie WR Van Jefferson's ability to contribute early in the season. Kupp is a strong WR1 choice in all PPR fantasy drafts.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led all receivers with 853 yards from the slot in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: The Rams are reportedly leaning toward running more two-tight sets in 2020, meaning Kupp may not get the same kind of opportunities inside that he has in previous seasons. Nevertheless, his route-running skills are sharp enough that he should be just fine working opposite Robert Woods if he sees significantly more time on the perimeter than he is used to. Owners should view him as a solid WR2 in drafts this summer.

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.
