Cooper Kupp is the NFC West’s best WR

The LA Rams had a less than a satisfactory season in 2019. They missed the playoffs after appearing in the Super Bowl. You can’t blame the disappointing season on the receiving corps.

Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods are as dynamic as any receivers in the NFL. They are the beneficiaries of good quarterback play in Jared Goff. Their tight end, Tyler Higbee, is pretty good, too.

Last season, Kupp led the Rams in receptions. He caught 94 passes for 1161 yards with 10 touchdowns. He averaged 12.4 yards per catch while catching 70.1% of the passes thrown his way.

Not out of the Woods just yet

Woods was not too far behind Kupp statistically. He caught 90 passes for 1134 yards with 2 touchdowns. He averaged 12.6 yards per catch which moves the chains downfield.

The addition of Cam Akers as the dual-threat running back may affect Woods’s numbers in 2020. Van Jefferson was drafted by LA in the recent draft in round two. The selection of Jefferson may push Woods into the slot receiver role.

Finding LA Rams QB Goff success with progression reads. dark. Next

Most importantly, Kupp is the receiver to grab first in your fantasy draft. You might be thinking that Hopkins is the better receiver. Chemistry goes a long way between quarterbacks and receivers. Kupp and Goff have chemistry and Hopkins and Murray do not.
