Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods caught all six of his targets for 70 yards in a 28-19 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Although Woods continues to play second fiddle to Cooper Kupp, his production has stabilized a bit recently. He has either caught a touchdown or reached 70 receiving yards in each of the last four games, and Woods should be a solid WR3 against the Houston Texans in Week 8.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods posted just two catches for 31 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the New York Giants, but at least he was able to score a touchdown.
Huddle Up: The stat line was a bummer, especially after 150 yards last week in Seattle. But at least he had his second score in the past three games. While the yardage total was his lowest since Week 1, he remains a legit WR2 in all fantasy leagues heading into favorable Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods caught 12 passes (on 14 targets) for 150 yards during the team's Week 5 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: In the wake of LA's Week 4 loss to Arizona it was reported that the Rams wanted to get Woods more involved. Mission accomplished. Woods was targeted a team-high 14 times, four more than early-season favorite Cooper Kupp, and his 150 yards nearly matched the 172 he posted over his first four games combined. We'll see if this is an aberration or the start of a better connection between Woods and Matthew Stafford. For now, Woods has at least reestablished his credentials as a WR2.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods will see more attention in the offense, according to head coach Sean McVay. 'This guy's a stud in every sense of the word,' McVay said. 'It is important to be able to get a handful of guys involved. That's something that I always want to continue to be intentional about. I think that's one of the benefits that we do have is we've got five eligibles. Want to be able to spread that wealth while also making sure that sometimes I'm calling plays where guys are the primary and the coverage doesn't necessarily dictate where the read goes. So, when Robert's involved, that's a good thing for the Rams offense. That's something that we want to continue to see displayed, but Robert is a leader, he's a captain and he's been doing a great job up to this point. We just need to get him some more opportunities and that starts with me.'
Huddle Up: Cooper Kupp is the top-scoring receiver in fantasy. Woods is 42nd. That gap should lessen, but it's pretty clear that Matthew Stafford and Kupp are working on something special right now. Woods is a WR2 in fantasy that maybe can have a few more looks in the near term.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods caught three of his six targets for 33 yards and added a 5-yard run in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: There is no question through three games that Matthew Stafford only has eyes for Kupp, Woods was drafted to be a low-end WR1 less than a month ago, but this marks the second time he has seen six or fewer targets. While it still is much too early to give up on Woods living up to his fantasy draft billing or sell him for pennies on the dollar, we've probably seen enough to view him more as a low-end WR2. He should remain in lineups in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods caught five of his nine targets for 64 yards in a 27-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Woods saw more looks than he did in the opener, but Cooper Kupp has been be the favorite target of Matthew Stafford. Woods still has WR3 appeal, but he appears to be the clear No. 2 weapon in the passing attack at this point.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods caught three of his four targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 versus the Chicago Bears. He added a seven-yard run as well.
Huddle Up: The Rams have a bevy of receiving options this year, so it's reasonable to assume that even Woods or Cooper Kupp will have a down game or two on occasion. As it was, Woods came through for his fantasy managers late in the fourth quarter on a toe-tapping 2-yard touchdown catch. At worst a 1B option in what figures to be one of the more dynamic passing attacks in the league in 2021, Woods should be played with confidence in Week 2 versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods leads all wide receivers with 1,089 yards after the catch since the start of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: Woods needed that YAC in 2020 as he finished tied for 11th among wideouts with 90 catches (a career high) but still finished 26th at the position with 936 yards. We'll see if the Rams' offensive structure changes any with QB Matthew Stafford now at the helm, but Woods figures to remain a solid WR2 draft prospect regardless.
