2017 Week 18 vs ATL (14 / 9 / 142 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods was tremendous in this game as he was a major reason that this game remained close as Gurley struggled in the first half. Woods got back to the role that he was playing pre-injury in which he was more than just a possession receiver as he was also running deep routes down the field and was the primary focus lining up on the right side of the field which is Goff's preferred side to throw from. Woods' best catch of the day was a full-extension diving catch with 35 seconds left in the first quarter for a 40-yard completion that set the Rams up for a field goal right before the end of the half.
2017 Week 16 vs TEN (8 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods was largely a non-factor in this game as the team tried to get him involved but was largely unable to in this game as Woods and Goff were not on the same page for most of this game. Woods still saw 8 targets in this game so continue to expect him to be involved in future weeks but this was a week in which Woods and Goff were not on the same page.
2017 Week 15 vs SEA (7 / 6 / 45 / 1 rec)
It was not the most productive day for any receiver in the Rams offense this week, but Woods continues to be Jared Goff's favorite target. Despite trading for Sammy Watkins, it has been Woods that has taken over in the receiving core. Woods was rewarded this week with a 1-yard touchdown catch on a simple quick out route. Todd Gurley had just been stopped on the 1-yard line after already scoring twice from the same spot. Goff faked to Gurley up the middle and found Woods wide open to continue the blowout. Woods did not see a lot of work outside of that and his longest play of the day was 14 yards. Receivers do not need to do very much when you have a running back that goes for over 150 yards and 4 total touchdowns.
2017 Week 11 vs MIN (11 / 8 / 81 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods continues to emerge as the primary receiver on this Rams team as he once again had a terrific game in a tough matchup in which he saw 11 targets. Woods has come to be the most reliable and the primary receiver in this offense over the past few weeks and has shown that he can perform in tough matchups as he did against Patrick Peterson and now Xavier Rhodes. Woods did leave this game with a shoulder injury and is expected to miss several weeks which is a crushing blow to this offense.
2017 Week 10 vs HOU (10 / 8 / 171 / 2 rec)
Robert Woods had the game of his career so far as he was able to show off his speed on a 94-yard pass reception in which the team utilized a play-action pass for Woods to use his speed to get behind Johnathan Joseph. Woods later scored a second touchdown on a creative play call in which Woods started in motion as if he was going to do an end around, he quickly stopped and then went back the direction that he came from as the play was being snapped. Goff hit him on the pass and Woods was able to find the end zone.
2017 Week 9 vs NYG (5 / 4 / 70 / 2 rec)
Robert Woods once again led the team in snaps as he was on the field for 70% of the teams plays in this game as he is a vital part of this offense as a blocker and a possession receiver, however in this game he showed an ability to find the end zone which is something he has not done this season as he scored his first two touchdowns as a Rams receiver in this game. Woods had one of the best runs of this game as he caught the ball one yard behind the line of scrimmage and ran the ball 52 yards without getting touched by the Giants on a 3rd and 33 play early in the second quarter that set the tone of the entire game. Woods showed a burst on that play that we have not always seen from the receiver. Woods was able to find the end zone for a second time in the third quarter on a crossing route in which he was uncovered for a five-yard pass for the score.
2017 Week 7 vs ARI (7 / 5 / 59 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Woods continues to be one of the favorite targets in this offense as he was targeted seven times in this game. Woods' role and value continues to be a possession receiver between the 20-yard lines as he has just three red zone targets so far this season which ranked 124th in the NFL so far this season. Woods lined up opposite of Patrick Peterson going up against Tramon Williams and was able to deliver on the positive matchup as he was able to get separation against the new cornerback for the Cardinals in this game.
2017 Week 6 vs JAX (7 / 5 / 70 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods was one of the few bright spots in the passing game this week as he was matched up against Jalen Ramsey who prior to this game had been one of the best cornerbacks in football. Woods led the wide receivers in snaps this week as he was on the field for 88% of the plays and lined up at several different positions trying to capitalize on the best matchup as he faced all three of the Jaguars corners. Woods did fumble on a 20-yard reception over the middle in which he found a week spot in coverage only to be tackled from behind to fumble the football.
2017 Week 5 vs SEA (8 / 5 / 66 / 0 rec, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)
Woods quietly had a very solid game and has emerged as a favorite target for Goff. Woods is listed ahead of Tavon Austin for the second wide receiver spot on the Rams depth chart and it showed with his eight targets on the day. Woods was able to shake his defender for 20-yards on the game's final drive to give the Rams 3 shots at the end zone from the 20-yard line. The only thing that would have made the play better would have been if Woods had gotten out of bounds. As teams focus on Tavon Austin and Sammy Watkins, Woods should have more opportunities for the rest of the season.
2017 Week 4 vs DAL (6 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods continues to be on the field for a significant portion of the team's snaps as he once again was on the field for 86% of the teams snaps as the team loves his blocking ability. While the team took a few shots down the field to Woods, they were largely unsuccessful as he only caught two of his six targets although one of those was a 19-yard completion in the fourth quarter that setup an important field goal for the Rams.
2017 Week 3 vs SF (7 / 6 / 108 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods continues to lead this team in snaps as he has the led the receiving group in snaps every week this season largely due to his impressive run blocking ability. Although Woods was unable to find the end zone in this game, he had several nice receptions including a 25 yard reception in which he caught the ball five yards down the field made a defender miss and almost ended up scoring before being tackled inside the ten yard line. Woods also added a 31 yard reception.
2017 Week 2 vs WAS (4 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods was largely a non-factor in this game as even though he had four targets, he was often facing tight coverage and was only able to connect on one of those for eight yards. Woods was still on the field for 90% of the plays as his run blocking skills will keep him on the field for a majority of the plays and should continue to get his share of targets.
2017 Week 1 vs IND (5 / 3 / 53 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods was a surprise in this game as he was involved in down-field routes compared to his history as a possession receiver. Woods was able to connect with Goff on a deep crossing route in which Goff was able to hit him on the run for 27 yards. Woods led the wide receivers in snap counts as he was on the field for 66% of the offensive plays which is very encouraging moving forward for Woods.
