Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 11 vs MIN (7 / 6 / 64 / 0 rec)
Cooper Kupp was a fantasy player's nightmare scenario as he fumbled on the one-yard line on a play that he otherwise would have scored a touchdown. Outside of this, Kupp was very efficient catching all but one of his targets including a 23-yard reception on an in route over the middle. Kupp worked out of the slot for most of the day which is where the Vikings have had a little bit of trouble this season defensively.
2017 Week 10 vs HOU (7 / 6 / 47 / 0 rec)
Cooper Kupp's role in this game was to be a possession receiver for short quick passes as we have seen a lot of time this season. Kupp averaged just 7.8 yards per reception and was a favorite for Goff when he felt a blitz. Kupp led the team in snaps in this game which was the first time that he has done so all season. Kupp who was second in the league in red zone targets had just one target inside the red zone this week and was unable to convert it for a touchdown.
2017 Week 9 vs NYG (5 / 3 / 54 / 0 rec)
Kupp had a tough matchup this week as he was primarily lined up against Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and Kupp who is primarily a red-zone receiver was largely shut down in this game except for a 35-yard reception in which Kupp continued his route to help Goff who was rolling out. Kupp continued to work to get open on an in-route instead of cutting the route off short.
2017 Week 7 vs ARI (10 / 4 / 51 / 1 rec)
Kupp continues to be one of the stars of the best rookies so far this season, especially in the red zone as he had five red zone targets in this game. Kupp had a tremendous play on third and goal from the 18-yard line in which the Rams ran a wide receiver screen pass in which Kupp had tremendous blocking from Rodger Saffold downfield. Kupp was targeted ten times in this game and at times Kupp and Goff were not on the same page as Kupp caught just four of his ten targets which has been a trend for Kupp as he has caught just 53% of his targets this season.
2017 Week 6 vs JAX (3 / 2 / 35 / 0 rec)
Cooper Kupp was targeted just three times in this game as he drew a difficult matchup going against one of the best slot cornerbacks in football so far this season in Aaron Colvin. Kupp's bright spot was a 22-yard catch late in the fourth quarter that ended up setting up the field goal that put the game out of reach on a critical third down.
2017 Week 5 vs SEA (8 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)
Kupp had the opportunity to play hero in this one but was unable to bring in Goff's pass on the final play of the game in the end zone. Kupp beat his man to the inside and the ball went right off his fingertips. The ball was slightly overthrown by Goff but it is still something you would expect a pro wide receiver to catch. As for the rest of the game, Kupp was very quiet aside from his 19-yard out route in the first quarter to set up an eventual Tavon Austin rushing touchdown. Kupp may find some luck next week as Jacksonville keys in on Sammy Watkins and Tavon Austin but it is going to take a while to get over dropping the game-winning touchdown in this one.
2017 Week 4 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 60 / 1 rec)
Cooper Kupp was able to take advantage of a prime matchup as he was targeted seven times this game and was able to find the end-zone in this game. Kupp was on the field for 49 snaps in this game which topped the season high of 40 snaps. Kupp had a highlight catch on a 24-yard completion in which Jaylon Smith was lined up against Kupp and Kupp used his speed to simply out-run the linebacker on a slant route.
2017 Week 3 vs SF (2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Cooper Kupp was disappointing in this game as he was only targeted twice after two big games in back-to-back weeks. This was a season high in snap counts for Kupp, so it does not appear he's falling out of favor it just was a week where Watkins and Woods had everything going right.
2017 Week 2 vs WAS (6 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Kupp continues to be the leading receiver on the Rams in terms of targets this week. While he was only able to catch three of his six targets, he came very close to scoring a touchdown on a terrific catch in which Kupp fell down as Goff was releasing the ball, got back up quickly and then dove to catch the ball on the one yard line. Kupp and Goff clearly have a connection on the field that is likely to continue to last for weeks to come.
2017 Week 1 vs IND (6 / 4 / 76 / 1 rec)
The rookie continues to be the one of the bright spots in this offense. The rookie out of Eastern Washington is showing why he was the most productive wide receiver in college football history. Kupp connected with Jared Goff for a touchdown on a deep crossing route in which he just ran past the wide receiver for an easy touchdown. Kupp made a great one-handed catch in which Goff overthrew him but Kupp was able to tip the ball to himself to make the catch on the run.
Latest NewsRams | Cooper Kupp hauls in six receptions (Sun Nov 19, 06:38 PM) - Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp posted six receptions for 64 yards on seven targets in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. Our View: Kupp fumbled at the goal line or it could have been a solid WR1 day for him. He is still a consistent part of this offense and deserving of WR3/Flex consideration against the Saints next week and going forward.
