WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (knee) is officially inactive for the Divisional Round.

The hope was that Kupp would be able to play through this knee issue when it was initially described as a bruise last week. But this bursitis is a bit different and will keep Kupp out of today’s game against the Packers. This is a tough blow for the Rams, but they’ll look to advance and get Kupp back for the NFC title game next weekend.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp thought to be OK.

Kupp is reportedly dealing with a "knee contusion", which is a bit of a surprise after he limped off and to the locker room earlier this evening in the Rams' win over the Seahawks. Kupp should have a good shot to be ready for the Divisional Round, and we'd be surprised if he doesn't do what he can to get out there for his team.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp leaves game with apparent knee injury.

Kupp was about to throw a block when he appeared to suffer a non-contact right knee injury. Kupp limped over to the sideline and is now on the bench showing frustration. Let's hope this is not too serious, but it's not looking great; More information should become available in the next day or so. Before leaving, Kupp had four receptions for 78 yards in the Wild Card Round at Seattle.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

The Rams have activated Cooper Kupp from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Kupp will be back on Saturday for a trip to Seattle, which is a big boost to the offense whether or not Jared Goff (thumb) is back in the lineup. Based on the previous matchup and the way both teams have played recently, Rams-Seahawks could be more of a slugfest.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

This happening on a Tuesday should give Kupp time to be cleared by Sunday, but if not, it'd obviously be another big loss for the Los Angeles offense. Second-round pick Van Jefferson would step into a significant role against Arizona if Kupp isn't able to play.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

The Rams are signing Cooper Kupp to a three-year extension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The deal will keep him in Los Angeles through the 2023 season, so this is excellent news for Kupp's dynasty outlook in Sean Mcvay's offense. This year, it will be interesting to see how much the Rams rely on the traditional 11 personnel that McVay has preferred after running more 12 personnel down the stretch in 2019, but Kupp will at least be a high-upside WR2 in redraft leagues.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp has a lower-leg strain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Rams head coach Sean McVay said earlier today that Kupp does not have an ankle injury but rather has soreness and should be ready to go for the season opener. More specifically, according to Rapoport, what Kupp is dealing with is a "muscle strain on the right side of the lower part of his leg right above the foot." Regardless, it sounds like Kupp is dealing with a minor ailment, and his Week 1 status is not in much doubt as things stand.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp is dealing with a low-ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport says that he likely won't practice this week, but the injury is considered minor, and Kupp would be playing if it was the regular season. The bigger concern for Kupp's outlook in 2020 is the team continuing to rely more on 12 personnel that led to decreased playing time down the stretch in 2019. He remains a high-upside WR2 target.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp has changed his jersey number to #10.

Kupp's reasoning can be read in the link below. This obviously doesn't have a huge impact from a fantasy perspective, but fans might just want to know that Kupp will be sporting a new number in 2020. Also, Kupp says the new number (the number he wore in college) will help him "embrace the next stage in [his] career", so look for him to continue working hard and playing at a high level for the Rams moving forward.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp explodes for 220 yards in London.

Kupp caught seven passes for 220 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 8 win over the Bengals, creating chunk plays through the air all game for Los Angeles. The touchdown was a 65-yarder on a flea flicker where Kupp ran right down the sideline and took advantage of bad footing and a poor angle by a couple of Cincinnati defenders. This was a career-high in receiving for Kupp, who is now on pace for 116 receptions for 1,584 yards and ten touchdowns through eight games. Coming off a torn ACL helped make him a value throughout the summer, and Kupp was clearly one of the best selections in 2019 fantasy drafts.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp catches 11 passes in Week 3.

Kupp gained 102 yards and caught two touchdowns on his 11 receptions in the Rams' 20-13 Sunday night win over the Browns, as he routinely got open for quarterback Jared Goff throughout the game. Kupp's 11 receptions were a career-high, and it already brings his total to 23 in three games this season. The third-year receiver appears to be Goff's most trusted target over Robert Woods, and the torn ACL from last season is clearly a non-issue, as Kupp is 100% and playing like the injury never happened.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp will not be placed on the PUP list when training camp begins.

Kupp has been cleared from last season's ACL tear, which is great news as the Rams begin training camp later this week. The third-year receiver will undoubtedly be worked back slowly, but his Week 1 status is currently in zero doubt. Being cleared at the start of camp could also mean we see Kupp get a decent amount of playing time during the preseason, but either way, he should be a high-floor option in the earlier rounds of fantasy drafts late this summer. Kupp was on pace for nearly 1,300 yards last season if you take out the Broncos game he left early and had zero yards in when he initially injured his knee.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Sean McVay says the plan is for Cooper Kupp (knee) to be ready for Week 1.

While Kupp himself doesn't want to get too concerned about being "on track" in his rehab—instead taking things day-by-day—McVay expressed optimism about the third-year receiver. McVay says Kupp is "doing great," adding: "The goal for us is to have him ready for Week 1." The Rams head coach also added he expects Kupp to match his productivity from last season (566 yards and six touchdowns in eight games) when he returns to the field, saying that the goal is to have him "return to performance... the level that we're accustomed to seeing Cooper Kupp at for Week 1." As long as the Week 1 target isn't something that's pushed too hard, which could lead to a setback, expect Kupp to be on the field when the Rams face the Panthers to open their season on September 8.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp has a torn ACL, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Rams feared this was a serious knee injury for Kupp, and unfortunately it's a season-ender for the second-year receiver. Kupp's season ends with 40 receptions for 566 yards and six touchdowns along with four carries for 25 yards in eight games. It would have been an 80/1,132/12 stat line over 16 games (including a zero-catch Denver game where he initial injured his knee), so Kupp was obviously in middle of an outstanding season. This is a big loss for Jared Goff and the Rams, and now they'll rely on Josh Reynolds to step up along with Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks, and the team might use more two-tight-end sets with Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett moving forward. Kupp should be ready sometime around training camp next year, and he should be one of the best mid-round WR targets in 2019 fantasy drafts. We wish him luck on his recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the field.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp suffers apparent knee injury against the Seahawks.

Kupp just went down with a non-contact injury on a deep route, and he appears to be in a lot of pain while holding his knee area. This is to the same left knee that forced him to miss a couple of games earlier this season. He's shown great toughness to return to a game when it looked like he didn't have a chance to before, but we would be shocked if he returns today. Kupp had five receptions for 39 yards before leaving. Now we just have to hope this isn't a season-ending injury.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp catches clutch 41-yard touchdown in return, but Rams pick up first loss of the season.

Kupp caught five passes for 89 yards, with the highlight coming on a 41-yard score in the fourth quarter to tie the game (combined with a two-point conversion). The Rams had trailed 35-14 in the first half, but Kupp's catch-and-run on a simple crossing pattern brought them all the way back before New Orleans pulled away on a 72-yard touchdown by Michael Thomas to seal the win, 45-35. Hopefully fantasy owners didn't waste time getting Kupp back in lineups; he should be a great WR2 the rest of the way, including next Sunday against the Seahawks.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (knee) is "good to go" for Week 9.

Rams head coach Sean McVay says Kupp will be out there against the Saints, and he'll be an honorary captain with his grandfather Jake Kupp being honored by the Saints. Kupp can immediately be inserted as a great option in fantasy lineups after missing the last two games.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (knee) was officially a limited participant in today's practice.

Rams head coach Sean McVay said today's practice was important for Kupp, who the team has expressed optimism about all week. The second-year receiver is expected to be listed as questionable when the official injury report is released tomorrow.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (knee) is estimated as a limited participant in today's practice.

The Rams only held a walkthrough today, so Kupp being listed as limited is just an estimate. However, there's a lot of optimism about the second-year receiver playing on Sunday, and he's on the good side of questionable right now. We'll update you with Kupp's practice status the next two days.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Rams head coach Sean McVay believes there's a "very good chance" Cooper Kupp (knee) plays this week.

The fact that the Rams didn't rule Kupp out (he was listed as doubtful) for yesterday's game against the Packers was probably a good sign, and the team probably really hopes he's ready to go for this Sunday's huge matchup against the Saints. We'll have to track Kupp's status throughout the week, but consider him questionable for now. Kupp's return would be a boost for Jared Goff and the entire offense.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (knee) is officially inactive for the Rams.

Kupp was listed as doubtful, so he was expected to be out today against the Packers. Jared Goff and company will look to remain undefeated without one of their best weapons in a potential shootout with Green Bay.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (knee) is doubtful for Week 8.

Rams head coach Sean McVay already said Kupp was unlikely to play this Sunday against the Packers, and this indicates it'd take some major progress over the next two days for the second-year receiver to suit up. Expect Kupp to be ruled out when the actives and inactives are released Sunday afternoon.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (knee) is unlikely to play in Week 8.

Rams head coach Sean McVay called the second-year receiver doubtful to face the Packers but said that he's making "good progress." Kupp is week-to-week for now, and we'll update you if he's able to get in some practice time this week.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (knee) is week-to-week.

Rams head coach Sean McVay says Kupp is likely to miss this week against the Niners. Despite Kupp returning to yesterday's game in Denver, this isn't a surprise. The second-year receiver is dealing with a relatively bad knee sprain, so expect him to miss at least Week 7 and potentially more. This is a blow to Jared Goff and the Rams offense overall, but Josh Reynolds has the ability to step up and play well in Kupp's absence. Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks—Woods in particular—are likely to become even more of a focus of the passing attack, and the Rams could also go with more two-tight-end sets during Kupp's absence. Obviously, you should keep Kupp rostered while he's out.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp toughs it out in 23-20 win over the Broncos.

Kupp was carted off in the first half after 12-yard carry that resulted in a knee injury, but he somehow returned for the start of the third quarter. He didn't catch a pass in the game, but the fact that he was out there is a testament to his toughness, and it's something that should only bring the team closer as the only undefeated group left in the league. Kupp could very well miss time despite returning in Week 6, but if he plays, it's probably best to downgrade him to risky FLEX territory against the Niners next Sunday.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (knee) is returning to the game for the Rams.

After he was carted off in the first half and appeared to suffer a potential serious injury, Kupp is shockingly back against the Broncos. He's probably less than 100%, but he's toughing it out for this team. This is great news, and hopefully Kupp gets through the rest of this game healthy.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp leaves game with apparent leg injury.

On a jet sweep handoff in the second quarter against the Broncos, Kupp was horse-collar-tackled and appeared to have his leg twisted very awkwardly. Kupp is a tough player, but he stayed down on the sideline and was then carted off the field. Any missed time for Kupp would be a huge loss for the Rams offense, so hopefully the injury isn't as serious as it looks. We'll update you as more information becomes available, but expect Kupp's day to be done. He had one carry for ten yards before leaving today's game.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp has cleared concussion protocol.

Kupp is ready to go for Week 6. The second-year receiver is a very good fantasy option against the Broncos; and with Brandin Cooks also cleared from concussion protocol, Jared Goff and the Rams offense will have a full complement of weapons in Denver tomorrow.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (concussion) practiced fully today.

This was the next step as Kupp goes through the concussion protocol, and now he just needs to gain final clearance before Sunday. There's been optimism that the second-year receiver would be cleared, and there should be a good chance he's on the field against the Broncos. Check back in on Sunday for Kupp's official game status. Ideally, it'll be known hours ahead of LA's 4:05 PM ET kickoff.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (concussion) is participating in individual drills today.

If all goes well, Kupp will practice fully tomorrow and should be ready to go on Sunday. Things are looking good right now, but check back tomorrow for Kupp's official Week 6 game status.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (concussion) is "on track" to play in Week 6.

As is teammate Brandin Cooks. The Rams don't seem too concerned about either of their receivers in the concussion protocol, and they still have plenty of time to get fully cleared ahead of Sunday. Hopefully both Kupp and Cooks are feeling 100% soon.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp (concussion) has been ruled out for the rest of today's game.

Brandin Cooks was also ruled out with a concussion of his own, so the Rams are thin are receiver in the midst of a shootout with the Seahawks. Before leaving, Kupp caught six passes for 90 yards and a touchdown. Now Kupp will have 7 days to get cleared for Week 6 against the Broncos.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp is being evaluated for a concussion.

Brandin Cooks already left the game after taking a big hit to the head, and now Kupp is out of the game, leaving the Rams with Robert Woods their only starting receiver currently in the game. Hopefully Kupp is able to return to the game soon, but we'll update ou as more information becomes available.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp goes off in Week 4 win over the Vikings.

Kupp caught nine passes for 162 yards and two scores in a 38-31 victory on Thursday Night Football. The first score came in single coverage against Anthony Barr where he simply ran past the linebacker and Jared Goff hit him in stride from 70 yards out, and the second touchdown—a 19-yarder—was the highlight of the night with an amazing anticipation throw by Goff to get Kupp open in double coverage in the end zone. He might not keep his 96/1,392/16 pace at the quarter mark of the season, but Kupp is looking like a high-floor, matchup-proof WR2 in all formats.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp breaks loose for 53-yard touchdown in win over the Chargers.

Kupp caught four passes for 71 yards and a score, which came on a dime from Jared Goff as he powered out of a low tackle by Casey Hayward. It looks like Sean McVay's offense might be even better than it was a season ago, and Kupp has been great so far with lines for 5/52/1, 6/63, and Sunday's 4/71/1. Despite a difficult matchup with the Vikings on Thursday night, the second-year slot receiver remains a FLEX option in all formats for Week 4.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp catches all six targets in win against the Cardinals.

Kupp gained 63 yards on his six receptions in the Week 2 victory. The Rams want to get the ball in the hands of their second-year receiver, and he's a high-floor fantasy option for Week 3 despite a tough matchup with the Chargers.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp scores in Week 1 victory.

Kupp caught five passes for 52 yards and a score, which came from eight yards out in the third quarter. He also rushed twice for 16 yards. The second-year slot receiver should remain a key factor in Sean McVay's offense all season long, and he might be relied upon more over the next few weeks against some stingy perimeter corners. Consider Kupp a solid FLEX option in next Sunday's matchup with Arizona.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp scores in Rams' playoff loss.

Kupp was targeted 13 times against the Falcons, catching eight passes for 69 yards and a touchdown. The score came in the second quarter on a wheel route from the slot for 15 yards. While he did have some drops late in the season, including tonight, Kupp had a very good rookie season and will look to build upon it heading into 2018. Kupp would offer more upside if Sammy Watkins ends up leaving in free agency, so that'll be something to watch in the offseason.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp is inactive for Week 17.

Kupp is on the injury report with a knee injury, but he'd probably be playing if LA was playing its starters today against the Niners. Kupp's productive rookie regular season ends with 62 receptions for 869 yards and five touchdowns, and he'll look to make an impact for the offense in the postseason.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp scores go-ahead touchdown in Rams' win.

Kupp was targeted six times against the Titans, catching four passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. His score was in the fourth quarter and ended up being the final score in a 27-23 victory for the Rams. Kupp did have another drop in the game, something he's struggled with recently, but hopefully he doesn't let the issue get in his head. Kupp faces the 49ers to conclude the regular season next week.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp catches two passes in Week 15.

Kupp gained 21 yards on his two receptions (three targets), but he did have a bad drop on a would-be third-down conversion early in the game—though it didn't affect the Rams much in their blowout win against Seattle. Kupp is harder to trust in fantasy lineups with Robert Woods back and healthy.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp has big game against the Eagles.

This was probably the best game of Kupp's rookie season so far, as he caught five of seven targets for 118 yards and a touchdown, including a long of 64 yards. He was extremely difficult for the Eagles to cover from the slot, and his score came on a zig route by the goal line. Kupp has at least 64 yards in each of the last four games, and he's a FLEX option next week against Seattle.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp caught five passes for 68 yards in Sunday's win over Arizona.

Kupp followed up a career day with another quality performance, and the rookie should keep it going next week against the Eagles. With Robert Woods (shoulder) set to miss another week, Kupp should again be a solid FLEX in standard leagues and a WR2 in PPR leagues.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp steps up with Robert Woods (shoulder) out in win over the Saints.

Kupp caught eight passes for 116 yards, leading the team in both categories. The rookie has at least six receptions in each of the past three weeks, and he will look to keep it going against the Cardinals next Sunday. He went for a 4/51/1 line against them in October, and will be a solid FLEX option in standard leagues for Week 13.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp caught six passes for 64 yards in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.

Kupp had a decent stat line, but he also lost a key fumble and dropped what would have been a big gain to set Los Angeles up in scoring territory. The rookie receiver will be a low-end FLEX option in PPR leagues next week as the Rams host the Saints.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp gets seven targets against the Texans.

The rookie receiver caught six passes for 47 yards, as he again worked as a reliable target for quarterback Jared Goff. The Rams might need Kupp to step up and do more next week to avoid Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes on the outside against the Vikings, but he'll only be a FLEX option in Week 11.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp caught three passes for 54 yards in Sunday's blowout win over the Giants.

The rookie is on pace for a respectable 52/740/6 line at the season's midway point, and he has at least two receptions in every game this season. He's worth rostering in PPR leagues as the slot receiver on the NFL's highest-scoring offense.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp scores in Week 7.

Kupp caught four passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' win over the Cardinals in London. The touchdown came on an 18-yard screen pass in the fourth quarter with the Rams already up big. The 24-year-old rookie now has three touchdowns on the season, and he'll look to do more damage in Week 9 against the Giants.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp catches two passes against the Jaguars.

Kupp gained 35 yards on his two receptions, with his long catch going for 22 yards. The rookie receiver is playing well, but there might better FLEX options out there in Week 7 against Arizona—although the Cardinals have given up some big games to non-number one receivers this season, as offenses try to avoid lockdown corner Patrick Peterson.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp gets eight targets in Week 5.

Kupp caught three passes for 44 yards against the Seahawks, and he had a chance for a go-ahead touchdown on the final possession for the Rams as a pass went off his hands in the end zone. It was a lunging attempt by Kupp and by no means an easy catch, but he likely wishes he had another opportunity at that one. The rookie receiver gets a tough matchup against Jacksonville in Week 6, but he might avoid Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye if they both play outside and Kupp plays in the slot for most of the game.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp caught five passes for 60 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Kupp was quiet in Week 2 and Week 3, but Jared Goff went back to him to get a huge road win. The rookie receiver is on pace for 56 catches for 744 yards and eight touchdowns this season. He could remain involved with a bunch of tough perimeter corners coming up on the schedule, and he's worth owning in PPR leagues.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp catches both Week-3 targets.

The rookie receiver appeared to get less playing time than Tavon Austin, but the Rams mixed in their receivers throughout the game. Kupp had 17 yards on his two receptions, and he ran a double slant with Sammy Watkins at the goal line that led to a touchdown for Watkins. Kupp should put up bigger numbers against the Cowboys in Week 4.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp held in check by Washington.

Kupp caught three passes for 33 yards and was on the receiving end of a Jared Goff interception to essentially end the game. The rookie gets a chance to bounce back quickly against the Niners on Thursday night. He's a solid FLEX option in PPR leagues.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp caught four passes for 76 yards and one touchdown in his NFL debut.

Kupp made a spectacular one-handed, juggling catch in the second quarter and then scored an 18-yard touchdown from the slot. He also made a nice leaping grab in the fourth quarter. The rookie definitely showed he is ready to make a year-one impact in the NFL, and he needs to be picked up in all PPR leagues. The Rams play the Redskins in Week 2.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp won't play in the Rams' third preseason game.

Kupp is dealing with a slight hamstring tweak. Rams head coach Sean McVay says Kupp "had a little tweak and we're going to be smart." The rookie receiver is going to be a big part of the offense this season, so they aren't going to force things by putting him out there in Saturday night's exhibition against the Chargers. Kupp's preseason could be done, considering most starters don't play in the final preseason game. Don't sleep on Kupp late in your fantasy draft—especially in PPR leagues.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp shreds Raiders on Saturday night.

Kupp caught six passes for 70 yards and one touchdown, as Jared Goff kept going back to the open rookie. The third-round pick has the makings of an immediate fantasy contributor, and Sammy Watkins being on the field like he was last night could end up helping everyone. Kupp is currently going undrafted, but using a 14th-round pick on him might be a good move.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Cooper Kupp scores on fumble recovery in preseason game against Dallas.

The rookier receiver was alert on a fumble recovery in the end zone, which turns out to be his first ever NFL (preseason) touchdown. Kupp also had two receptions for 35 yards, including a nice catch for a first down on a bootleg from Jared Goff. The addition of Sammy Watkins complicates things for Kupp's fantasy value, but he should still be a contributor for the offense this season and a potential asset in PPR leagues.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Sean McVay talks up "mature" rookie receiver Cooper Kupp.

The Rams head coach was asked what he's seen from third-round pick and said he's "one of those receivers that sees the game through the quarterback's eyes" and is "very advanced for a rookie." McVay also said they are "expecting some good things from him moving forward." Kupp was listed alongside Robert Woods and Tavon Austin as a starter on the Rams' first unofficial depth chart yesterday, and he could work his way into being Jared Goff's number one receiver—or at least a reliable option for Goff—this year.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

Alden Gonzalez of ESPN believes rookie receiver Cooper Kupp will start this season.

Gonzalez writes Kupp "looks primed to solidify a role as a slot receiver" as a starter alongside Tavon Austin and Robert Woods. Everything surrounding the all-time FCS record-setter has been positive so far, including head coach Sean McCoy revealing that future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning loved throwing to Kupp at his quarterback camps. He might not put up big numbers as a rookie, but Kupp will look to emerge as a top target for Jared Goff moving forward.

Cooper Kupp | Rams WR

The Rams select all-time FCS receiving leader, Cooper Kupp of Eastern Washington, with the 69th pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Kupp is the all-time leader in FCS in receptions (428), yards (6,464), and touchdowns (73). Kupp excels at catching the ball and is a solid route runner. The Rams need help at receiver, and there's a chance Kupp starts opposite Robert Woods as a rookie. The opportunity is there—Kupp might be able to put up some decent numbers this season.
