Fantasy Football: 5 must starts for Rams in Week 2 against Cardinals
4. Cooper Kupp
During the NFL Draft in 2017, the Rams felt extremely confident that Cooper Kupp would turn into one of the biggest steals after selecting the former Eastern Washington star in the third round, and they were right on the money. Los Angeles fans will be the first to tell people that Kupp looked like anything but a rookie throughout his first NFL season, and with a year of experience under his belt, it seems like it’s only going to get better from here.
Picking up where he left off from his rookie campaign, Kupp played a key factor in the Rams pulling through with a win over the Raiders on Monday by hauling in five catches for 52 yards, one of which happened to be for a touchdown. Even better, Kupp tied with Woods in leading Los Angeles with nine targets on offense while benefitting from the presence of Cooks, just like the rest of his teammates.
With Arizona focusing most of their attention on the whereabouts of Cooks and Woods, Kupp could be in a great position to see additional passes thrown in his direction from Goff on offense. And if that is the case, Kupp is going to make plenty of fantasy football owners quite happy in Week 2.
