Cooper Kupp is out of the lineup for Week 1 of the Los Angeles Rams’ season, and he’s going to miss more than that. 

Kupp landed on injured reserve because of his hamstring injuries, which means he will miss the first four games of the season, including this week’s matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. 

Van Jefferson, Tutu Atwell, Ben Skowronek and others will be called upon to step up to start the season.

Kupp will not play in Week 1 – or the next three weeks – since he was placed on injured reserve, which knocks him out for four games. 

Best Rams player to target in prop market with Cooper Kupp out

Cam Akers anytime touchdown scorer

Sean McVay has been high on Cam Akers all offseason, and now I think he becomes the de-facto No. 1 option for the team on offense. 

The Rams are underdogs in Week 1, but if they find the end zone, don’t be shocked if Akers is the one to do it. 

The running back closed out the 2022 season strong, picking up six rushing scores over the final six weeks of the campaign. 

Whether you want to tail or fade this prop for Akers, DraftKings Sportsbook has an offer for bettors to win either way on Sunday.
