  Rams | Cooper Kupp contract terms    Sat Sep 12, 12:58 PM

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp and the team reached agreement Saturday, Sept. 12, on a three-year contract extension worth up to $48 million, according to NFL Network reporters Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo.

Footballguys view: The Rams were not kidding around. They got CB Jalen Ramsey done and then moved quickly to get Kupp's deal done too. Kupp was expected to get around $20 million annually but this deal is $16 million per year on average. He has yet to hit the peak in his career and could get another deal for big money when this contract is expired.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp has not had talks with the team about a contract extension, he said via videoconference.

He's in the final year of his rookie contract but the team should find a way to get something done. They also have to work on an extension with CB Jalen Ramsey in the near future.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin made the most of slot work    Thu Jul 2, 09:42 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin accumulated 838 receiving yards out of the slot in 2019 - the second-highest total in the league behind Cooper Kupp (853) - according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Godwin may in the slot less often with the addition of Rob Gronkowski and more two tight end sets this year, but he is still a WR1 and second-round pick in most fantasy drafts.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp terrific in slot    Sun Jun 14, 01:54 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught 69 passes while lined up as the slot receiver during the 2019 season, which was tied for the most among wide receivers.

Footballguys view: Kupp was used less in the second half of the season as the Rams went with more two tight end sets. It's not clear whether the offense will lean more towards two tight end or three wide receiver sets in 2020, but Kupp's numbers are likely to be down from 2019 levels in any event.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp tops in slot yardage    Sat Jun 13, 01:40 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led the league in 2019 with 853 receiving yards from the slot, according to Pro Football Focus data.

Footballguys view: Kupp is going to have opportunity to do more in 2020. With Brandin Cooks moved on, the team needs guys like Kupp and Robert Woods to excel. Rookie Van Jefferson will get thrown into the mix along with Josh Reynolds to round out the main group of receivers this year.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp's job getting easier each year    Mon Jun 1, 10:58 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp has seen his average depth of catch decline each year, going from 9.0 yards as a rookie in 2017 to 8.3 in 2018 and 7.0 in 2019.

Footballguys view: It's going to level out for Kupp in 2020. His average depth of catch reflects how he's used and where he's attacking an opponents defense. Kupp is a stud on the field and a WR1 for Fantasy GMs in PPR leagues. His current ADP is WR11 (3.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp sure-handed in 2019    Mon May 18, 02:04 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught 94 of his 134 targets in 2019, good for a reception rate of 70.1 percent. Only New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas had a better percentage (80.5) among qualifying wide receivers (at least 130 targets).

Footballguys view: Kupp has always been a sure-handed target and that's going to continue in 2020. Fantasy GMs are taking Kupp off the board at WR8 (3.01) in 12-team PPR leagues. Last year in standard-scoring leagues, Kupp finished the year as the no.4 fantasy receiver. His 10 receiving touchdowns from 2019 will be difficult to reproduce, but he's still a must-start every week.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp got it done in the slot in 2019    Wed May 6, 10:48 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led all receivers with 853 yards from the slot in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Kupp can take advantage of defenders from the slot. He's got quickness and the field vision to gash defenses and that will continue in 2020. Kupp is a low-end WR1 for Fantasy GMs in PPR leagues with a current ADP of WR10 (3.02) in 12-team PPR formats.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp's usage tailed off late    Sun Apr 12, 06:39 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp was targeted 46 times in four September games and 41 times in four October games in 2019, but he saw a total of only 47 targets in his final eight outings.

Footballguys view: The Rams need to make sure that Kupp is used early and often as much as possible in 2020. They deal Brandin Cooks to the Texans, so Kupp could be building on his already large role.

  Broncos | Courtland Sutton hard to bring down    Sun Mar 29, 05:34 PM

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton led all receivers with 12 broken tackles on receptions in 2019. Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson, former Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins and Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp tied for second among receivers with nine.

Footballguys view: Sutton is big, fast and physical. He had a breakout season as a sophomore in 2019 with 72 catches for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns. The best is still yet to come with Sutton as he did all that last year while working with three different (Joe Flacco, Brandon Allen, Drew Lock) quarterbacks last year. Expect him to be a favorite target of Lock with borderline WR1 production for Fantasy GMs.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp very efficient near goal line    Tue Mar 24, 11:38 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp finished in a tie for fifth in the league with 10 targets inside the 10 last season, but he finished with a league-best eight receptions and scored six touchdowns - tied for best in the NFL - with those opportunities.

Footballguys view: Kupp is quick on underneath routes and he knows how to find his way in tight spaces. He should continue to be a big target in the red zone this season.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught all four of his targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16, and he has caught a touchdown in four straight games.

Footballguys view: Kupp's fantasy stock fell off a cliff in the second half of the year. His touchdown salvaged something, but he has gone from the centerpiece of the Rams pass offense to a complement in the second half of the year.

Footballguys view: Kupp has scored a touchdown in back-to-back weeks now. His snaps were down but the passing offense as a whole is trending up. That makes Kupp at least a flex play for Fantasy GMs in Week 15.

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.

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.
