  Rams | Robert Woods not a lock to suit up    Sat Nov 23, 06:34 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (personal) is 'looking good' at practice, according to head coach Sean McVay Saturday, Nov. 23. McVay wouldn't commit to Woods playing against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Nov. 25, and said the team is 'just taking it day by day.'

Footballguys view: Woods would have a tough matchup against the Ravens corners if he does play so perhaps it's not best to wait around for Monday night if you have a viable Sunday option. Carry Willie Snead or Josh Reynolds if you are planning on waiting on Woods.

  Rams | Robert Woods to practice Thursday    Thu Nov 21, 03:53 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (non-injury) has rejoined the team and will participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 21, according to head coach Sean McVay. Woods' status for Week 12 is uncertain.

Footballguys view: Woods wouldn't be a great play against the stellar Ravens corners if he does go, but his presence could complicate the projection of the Rams passing game in a tough matchup. We're glad that he has been able to return to the team and hope whatever the issue was is behind him.

  Rams | Robert Woods not back yet    Thu Nov 21, 11:55 AM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (personal) has not returned to the team as of Thursday, Nov. 21.

Footballguys view: The Rams should get Brandin Cooks (concussion) back on Monday night against the Ravens. If Woods is still out of action, Josh Reynolds would get more work...but it's against a revamped and tough Ravens secondary. Have other plans at the ready.

The Los Angeles Rams have declared WR Robert Woods, DB Jake Gervase, OG Jamil Demby, CB Darious Williams, WR Brandin Cooks, DL Greg Gaines and OT Rob Havenstein inactive for Week 11.

Footballguys view: Woods has a personal issue. Josh Reynolds and Gerald Everett could be more frequent targets in this one. Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman would be emergency plays from tomorrow night's game, or Reynolds, or Taylor Gabriel or Anthony Miller from tonight's game.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods posted five receptions for a team-high 80 yards on seven targets in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons.

  Rams | Robert Woods expecting more    Fri Jun 21, 10:13 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods said he is capable of building on his performance from 2018 and feels he will ultimately be rewarded for his play with a contract extension. 'And I just think my play will show it all,' Woods said. 'I feel like I will get what I deserve.'

Footballguys view: Woods had a massive breakout in 2018 and he is also a top blocking wide receiver. He should get a payday in 2022 if the Rams let his contract expire without an extension, but he is actually underpaid at 5.5 million in 2020 and 7.5 million in 2021.

  Rams | Robert Woods to keep producing?    Fri Nov 16, 10:59 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods has had at least 70 receiving yards in nine straight games heading into a Week 11 matchup with a Kansas City Chiefs team that is allowing the third-most receiving yards per game.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs look like one of the best in the NFL, but they have an Achilles' heel that is all on the defensive side of the ball. We hope this game on Monday night lives up to the hype. Woods could perform like a top-10 WR1 in Week 11.

  Rams | Two Rams restructure    Thu Aug 30, 08:17 AM

Los Angeles Rams OT Andrew Whitworth and WR Robert Woods restructured their contracts Thursday, Aug. 30, to create $7 million in salary cap space. Financial terms weren't disclosed, but it's a suggestion DT Aaron Donald may be close to receiving a new deal.

Footballguys view: One had to wonder if this is to help with the Aaron Donald situation. There have been reports of progress, and given the contracts the Rams gave Todd Gurley and Brandin Cooks, they may just need to re-arrange some money. Stay tuned.

  Rams | More from Robert Woods in 2018?    Fri Jun 29, 09:47 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods said the offense is 'more advanced' this year, and there has been a 'big improvement' with the timing between himself and QB Jared Goff.

Footballguys view: Woods would do more this year if he can stay healthy. Injuries limited him to only 12 games in 2017, yet he still posted career bests in receiving yardage (781) and touchdowns (5). As the second option in the Rams passing attack opposite Brandin Cooks, Woods is going off the board at WR37 (8.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Rams | Robert Woods handled off-coverage in 2017    Fri Jun 29, 03:23 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods finished with 44 catches for 608 yards against off-man coverage in 2017, generating a 134.3 receiver rating in such situations - the third-best mark in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Injuries limited Woods to 12 games in 2017, but he still posted career-best numbers in receiving yardage (781) and touchdowns (5). Brandin Cooks was added to be the lead WR for the Rams in 2018, so Woods stays in his role of the no.2 receiver and he'll get the coverage to match. Fantasy owners see Woods as a WR4, and he's going off the board at WR37 (8.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods had his contract restructured Thursday, March 15, adding $200,019 to a $3 million roster bonus he is set to receive early on in the league year, according to a league source. Woods had 781 receiving yards last season. If he reached 800, it would have bumped the incentives he earned from $400,000 to $600,000. The team made him a healthy scratch in Week 17 before the playoffs.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods caught nine passes on 14 targets for 142 yards in a 26-13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 6.

  Rams | Top wideouts to play sparingly?    Fri Dec 29, 12:53 AM

Los Angeles Rams WRs Cooper Kupp (knee), Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins are unlikely to see much action in Week 17, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Footballguys view: Rookie Josh Reynolds, along with Pharoh Cooper and Mike Thomas should see most of the work at wide receiver, with Tavon Austin possibly figuring in.

  Rams | Robert Woods held in check    Sun Dec 24, 05:47 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods posted three catches for 33 yards on eight targets in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: Woods looked like the Rams #1 receiver last week, but this week it was Sammy Watkins and Cooper Kupp scoring and Todd Gurley dominating the passing game. Woods still ended up being better than anyone could have anticipated and should be drafted across redraft leagues after going undrafted in most leagues this year.

  Rams | Robert Woods making it happen    Mon Dec 18, 01:44 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods ranks fourth in the league among receivers with at least 500 snaps this season in passer rating when targeted (121.6), per Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Good things happen when Woods is targeted by QB Jared Goff. Woods returned to the field on Sunday after missing about a month with a shoulder injury and finished the game against the Seahawks with six catches for 45 yards and one touchdown. So long as he's healthy, Woods will continue to play a large role on the Rams offense in the regular season and into the postseason.
