3. Get Williams, Reynolds more involved
Only time will tell when it comes to whether Cooper Kupp will be healthy enough to go for Sunday’s game against the Packers, although the receiver has been making good progress this week. Still, the Rams know they have to be cautious when it comes to Kupp potentially playing in Week 8 since it would be devastating to see the situation get worse if he’s rushed back too soon.
The good news for Los Angeles is if Kupp is unable to go, Goff will still have plenty of great options to work with at receiver since Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods are capable of stepping up even more. Then again, since the Packers’ defense may be providing these two receivers with a little extra attention, Goff could be in a position where he needs other players to step up as well.
That’s where Josh Reynolds and Nick Williams could come into play, as both receivers could see additional time on the field similar to last weekend if Kupp is unable to go. These two only combined for three catches last weekend against the San Francisco 49ers, but hopefully the results will be different this time around for Reynolds and Williams if needed.
