Cooper Kupp appears to have taken over the number one wide receiver role for the Rams. With Robert Woods (quarterback Jared Goff's usual favorite target) out due to a shoulder injury, Kupp became the primary pass option during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Cooper Kupp hauled in 8 of his 11 targets for a total of 116 yards, including this 53-yard catch.
During Week 10 of the NFL season, sophomore Rams quarterback (and former number one overall pick) Jared Goff put up a second consecutive monster fantasy football performance. Goff's 311 passing yards and four touchdowns against the Giants in Week 9 netted him 28.4 fantasy points in standard leagues. In Week 10, he proved that was no fluke by throwing for 355 yards against Houston. He connected for another three scores, ending the day with 26.5 points. Two of the touchdowns came on passes to Robert Woods, who had the best game of his career.
Cause For Excitement?
Definitely. But it's tough to go all-in on Goff just yet. He took major advantage of two weak matchups; the Giants have allowed more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks than any other team in football (20.8), while the Texans have allowed the third-most (20.1).
