Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds received a positive review from head coach Sean McVay Tuesday, April 21, when McVay called the recent trade of WR Brandin Cooks 'a big vote of confidence' for Reynolds. 'We just feel he's a capable starting receiver,' McVay said.
Huddle Up: Reynolds is still behind WRs Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods on the receiving depth chart, but he's now just one injury away from playing a big role. He isn't worth much fantasy consideration in 12-team leagues to begin the season, but he'll be a streaming option at times and will be a must-get waiver option should Kupp or Woods miss any time.

Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds caught six of 11 targets for a total of 104 yards in two starts last season.
Huddle Up: The two starts came with freshly-traded WR Brandin Cooks out of the lineup, but they were in fairly difficult matchups against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears. Reynolds will be the third option behind WRs Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods with Cooks moving on to the Houston Texans. He'll be worth streaming in plush matchups and will be a high-priority waiver addition if Kupp and/or Woods were to suffer injury.

Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds (illness) practiced in full Saturday, Nov. 23, and has been cleared to play Monday, Nov. 25, against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Reynolds seems to be fully recovered from the relatively minor ailment which kept him sidelined earlier in the week. He'll slip back to a WR4 role for the Rams with the return of Brandin Cooks, and he'll be a fantasy option in only very deep leagues.

Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds (illness) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 22. The Rams did not hold a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Reynolds appears to have a good chance to play this week but probably will see less targets with Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods back in the lineup. He can be benched in all leagues if fantasy players have better options.

Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Reynolds has been playing well over the last few weeks but probably will return to the fourth receiver role with Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods likely to return. He will have a tough opponent this week and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds had three receptions for 55 yards in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: With Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods both out of the lineup, Reynolds edged out Cooper Kupp for team-high honors in receiving yards -- his day would've been much better if a long TD hadn't been erased on an illegal formation penalty. Reynolds always carries short-term value when one of LA's top three wideouts is out, but his long-term prospects are dependent on how quickly Cooks returns to action.

Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds hauled in three of his five targets for 49 yards in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Reynolds filled in for Brandin Cooks and essentially put up the same kind of line that Cooks did form most of the last month. The absence of the downfield passing game has been one of the most surprising aspects of what has quickly become an average offense. Even if Cooks is not cleared from the league's concussion protocol in time for Week 11, Reynolds will once again be a difficult player to stream with confidence against the Chicago Bears.

Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds could have a big role if WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) is forced to miss games as the Rams have used three or more receivers on 91% of their drop backs this season.
Huddle Up: Reynolds caught three of eight targets for 73 yards and his first touchdown of the season against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8. He has long been buried on the Rams' depth chart behind Cooks, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods, but he has been one of the league's best No. 4 receivers and has had quality games as an injury replacement in the past. He should be scooped up and can be started as a flex option if Cooks is still sidelined after the bye.

Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds registered three catches for 73 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals in London.
Huddle Up: Reynolds registered his first touchdown of the season, and his first decent stat line of 2019. Unless he is able to post this type of production consistently, he can mostly be avoided in fantasy leagues. The Rams are off in Week 9.

Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds caught three passes on seven targets for 28 yards in Super Bowl LIII against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Reynolds was elevated when Cooper Kupp went down, and though he had his moments, Reynolds clearly isn't the player that Kupp is. Look for Reynolds to head back down the depth chart in 2019.
