3. Cooper Kupp

Cooper Kupp still has a long way to go when it comes to proving himself, but the former Eastern Washington standout already looks more like a veteran instead of a rookie when seeing the impact he’s making this early on for the Los Angeles Rams on offense. Even during the preseason, Kupp showed signs of being in for a monster season with the Rams after seeing the early chemistry he was developing with Jared Goff in the passing game.

After finding the end zone right away in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts while finishing the game with four catches for 76 yards, Kupp’s follow up performance was more on the quiet side after catching just three passes for 33 yards against the Washington Redskins. Hopefully, Kupp can get back on track during Thursday’s contest against the San Francisco 49ers, but the good news for the rookie is he should benefit from playing alongside some of his teammates.

With the 49ers’ defense focusing most of their attention on Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods, Kupp should be able to see a few additional passes thrown in his direction from Goff on offense. And if that does end up happening, fantasy football owners will certainly be pleased with Kupp against San Francisco.
