  Rams | Cooper Kupp excelled out of slot    Tue Jul 2, 12:46 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) led the NFC West in 2018 with an average of 2.42 yards per route run out of the slot.

Footballguys view: More advanced data here that backs up what everyone already knows...Kupp is really good out of the slot. His November ACL surgery uncovered no additional damage and he should be ready for the season opener. He's a low-end WR2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2019. Kupp is currently going off the board at WR20 (4.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp making steady progress    Fri May 24, 03:31 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) has been mostly limited to doing rehab work on the side with trainers during organized team activities, although he has also been allowed to participate in other aspects of practice - such as the club's jog-thru 11-on-11 periods during the week.

Footballguys view: Love this news here. Kupp can be such a big part of the Rams high-powered passing attack and the offense can be so dangerous, even more so than normal, with him on the field. He's currently going off the board at WR20 (4.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp unsure about return    Mon May 20, 10:33 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) said he is happy with the progress he is making in his rehab but does not want to put a timetable on his return.

Footballguys view: Kupp made it through eight games last year before going down with a knee injury. It's been smooth sailing during his recovery with no known setbacks for the young wide receiver. Rams head coach Sean McVay said the goal is for Kupp to be ready for Week 1. Fantasy GMs are taking Kupp off the board at WR19 (4.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Footballguys view: Kupp made it through eight games in 2018 before going down with injury. He's a key piece of the passing attack and makes for a nice addition if you play in PPR formats. The plan all along has been to have Kupp ready by the season opener.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp to be ready for camp    Thu Feb 28, 10:47 AM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Kupp can get back to his pre-injury form in 2019. Kupp has been a playmaker for the Rams over the last two seasons, scoring 11 touchdowns in the process. In nine games last year before his injury, Kupp had 40 catches for 566 yards and six touchdowns.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) said he has not experienced any setbacks as he rehabs from knee surgery.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 19.

Footballguys view: This move has been expected for some time and now it's official. Without Kupp, the Rams should get more playing time for WR Josh Reynolds. They have a couple of TEs (Gerald Everett, Tyler Higbee) who could see a slight increase in targets with Kupp out for the year.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp done for season    Mon Nov 12, 10:47 AM

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: Terrible news for the young wide receiver here. Kupp battled back from a previous knee injury suffered this year against the Broncos and was on the field for eight games in 2018. The Rams turn to Josh Reynolds in three-wide receiver sets with Kupp out of the lineup.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp suffers knee injury    Sun Nov 11, 06:56 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) left the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks due to a non-contact knee injury. He was assisted by a member of the training staff to the sideline, then to the locker room.

Footballguys view: Kupp's injury looked serious. It seems almost impossible that he would be back for next week's game and it would be a win if he isn't out for the season. Gerald Everett, Tyler Higbee and Josh Reynolds all have some waiver wire appeal now.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) has a good chance to play in the Week 9 game, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Footballguys view: Kupp was hurt on a horse-collar tackle in Week 6 against the Broncos and has been out of action ever since. He's lucky it wasn't a more severe injury, but reports have been positive about his recovery. It looks like Kupp is going to be in action this week against the Saints. If Kupp returns to the field, Fantasy GMs should be considering him as a flex play.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is making 'good progress,' according to head coach Sean McVay, but he added it's 'hard to say' whether Kupp will be available for the team's Week 8 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Kupp can start practicing in the near future. Initial reports had Kupp missing at least a couple of weeks. We'll see if that's the case or if he can get back out there sooner than some thought. If Kupp is out for another week, Josh Reynolds will get more work as the team's no.3 wideout.

  Rams | Week 7 injury report for Rams    Fri Oct 19, 06:45 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and has been ruled out for Week 7. DT Michael Brockers (shoulder), LB Matt Longacre (back), WR Josh Reynolds (hand), OG Rodger Saffold (knee), C John Sullivan (non-injury) and OT Andrew Whitworth (non-injury) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Kupp is out and that means Josh Reynolds should get more playing time. After a down week in the snow and cold against the Broncos last week, we expect the Rams passing attack to get back on track. Reynolds could produce enough for a start as a 'what the heck' flex for Fantasy GMs.
