Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 17 vs ARI (10 / 7 / 99 / 1 rec)
Kupp led the team in receiving against the Cardinals and was back to his prominent production from earlier in the season. Kupp's yardage came easy as the slot-centric receiver separated regularly with a 25+ yard reception over the middle and a wide-open goal line touchdown among his successes. Kupp also corralled a Jared Goff's best throw of the game, down the sideline with perfect arc over a probing defensive back.
2019 Week 16 vs SF (4 / 4 / 31 / 1 rec)
Kupp saw a meager four targets against the 49ers but found the end zone for a fourth straight game. Kupp was stuffed on his two screen pass opportunities, including fumbling on one occasion, which the Rams fortunately recovered. Kupp had one notable play in the game, coming wide open on a deep crossing route for an easy chunk touchdown. Kupp has been a clear secondary option to Robert Woods and Tyler Higbee in the Rams offense over the past month.
2019 Week 15 vs DAL (6 / 6 / 41 / 1 rec)
Kupp found the end zone for a third straight game in the blowout loss against the Cowboys. However, Kupp largely produced in clear garbage time with all but one of his receptions, including his goal line touchdown. Kupp was invisible until the late third quarter before finding the box score with a catch. Kupp also lost a fumble in the game, but it was wiped out by penalty. Kupp was behind Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Tyler Higbee, and Todd Gurley in targets on the team.
2019 Week 14 vs SEA (4 / 4 / 45 / 1 rec)
Kupp did not see a target until the second quarter and was a clear secondary option to Robert Woods and Tyler Higbee in the Rams passing game. Kupp was red-hot in the second quarter but saw only one reception the rest of the game. Kupp's production included a third-down conversion and later a laser deep in-cut for a touchdown as the Rams surged to a big first half lead. Kupp has scored in back to back weeks and is closing in on 1,000 yards for the season.
2019 Week 13 vs ARI (6 / 6 / 65 / 1 rec)
Kupp made the most of his tepid six targets despite the Rams throwing for more than 400 yards in the blowout win over Arizona. Kupp added a deep out touchdown in the second half to a chunk deep over route reception for more than 25 yards in the first half of his notable plays. Robert Woods enjoyed a career day, overshadowing the typically high volume Kupp. Seattle offers another quality matchup for Kupp and the Rams passing game next week.
2019 Week 12 vs BAL (10 / 6 / 35 / 0 rec)
Kupp saw a hearty 10 targets against Baltimore, but his struggles continued to parallel the Rams offense overall the past three weeks. Kupp had four quick out routes in the fourth quarter alone to pad his otherwise poor stat line as one of his earlier receptions was a give up play on third-and-long. Kupp added a drop turned interception in the closing minutes to cap off the disappointing performance by the Rams offense.
2019 Week 11 vs CHI (3 / 3 / 53 / 0 rec)
Kupp saw a mere three targets after his no-show box score from a week ago. The Rams' ball-control offense and only 18 pass attempts siphoned a potential bounce-back for Kupp, who did not see a target until nearly halftime. Kupp nearly scored on his lone notable big play, coming wide open on a deep route and stretching for the end zone. Kupp was originally ruled a touchdown but on review stepped out at the one-yard-line, fortunate for Kupp as he also fumbled as the play was completed. Kupp fumbled on a screen reception, but the Rams recovered and Kupp logged a false start penalty in the game. Despite all the missed opportunities, Kupp had a deep crossing route reception called back by penalty which would have pushed him close to 80 yards on the game.
2019 Week 10 vs PIT (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kupp was a surprising no-show for the Rams' box score in Week 10 as the Rams offense stumbled to a low-scoring road loss to Pittsburgh. Kupp dropped two passes of note, including one in the red zone and failed to create separation throughout the game. Kupp did draw two defensive pass interference penalties beyond the box score amidst his forgettable output.
2019 Week 8 vs CIN (10 / 7 / 220 / 1 rec)
Kupp logged his fifth 100-yard game of the season with a new career-high 220 yards. Kupp found wide-open zones of the defense regularly to fuel yards-after-the-catch for massive chunks of yardage. Among Kupp's highlights included adjusting to a throw behind him on a third down, a trick play 65-yard touchdown, and converting a well-covered deep ball target from Jared Goff. Kupp added a rare drop in the game to thwart an even bigger performance. As a centerpiece in the Rams passing game, Kupp is on pace for more than 1,500 yards this season and more than 110 receptions with a conducive schedule after the Rams' Week 9 bye.
2019 Week 7 vs ATL (8 / 6 / 50 / 0 rec)
Kupp has cooled since his three-game stretch of monster performances in Weeks 3-5. Kupp collected eight targets, most among the Rams' trio of central wide receivers, but was held in check by the otherwise questionable Atlanta defense. Kupp converted a third-and-long with a strong throw by Jared Goff on a deep in-cut route and turned a screen pass into more than 10 yards, However, Kupp was stuffed on his lone touchdown opportunity, a red zone screen pass.
2019 Week 6 vs SF (6 / 4 / 17 / 0 rec)
Kupp led the team with six targets against the 49ers in the sound loss to their divisional rival. However, Kupp was stifled on his typical screen and short-range routes which rely on yard-after-the-catch acumen. Kupp added a fourth-down drop to his forgettable day, a lost effort for the entire offense. The Falcons offer a bounce-back matchup in Week 7.
2019 Week 5 vs SEA (17 / 9 / 117 / 1 rec)
Kupp had a quiet first quarter against Seattle but exploded over the rest of the game for his fourth straight 100-yard game game and adding his fourth touchdown over the past three contests. Kupp's target volume has been unstoppable as well with 63 over five games, including a season-high 17 this week alone. Kupp had three catches late in the fourth quarter alone and his touchdown came on a laser red zone throw by Jared Goff to close the first half on a high note. Kupp separated from coverage with easy on short-to-intermediate routes and was an after-the-catch maven.
2019 Week 4 vs TB (15 / 9 / 121 / 1 rec, 1 / -2 / 0 rush)
Kupp surged in volume, along with the rising tide of the Rams voluminous passing game against Tampa Bay, to a season-high 15 targets and 121 yards. Kupp was uncheckable by defensive backs and produced three massive plays for 20 or more yards, including two for chunks of yards-after-the-catch and a long touchdown. Kupp has three 100-yard games in a row and if the Rams defense continues to struggle like they did against the Buccaneers, Kupp's elite target level will be stable going forward.
2019 Week 3 vs CLE (12 / 11 / 102 / 2 rec)
Kupp was uncoverable against the Browns, dominating all sections of the field. Kupp's lone missed target was an outright drop, otherwise being a automatic positive play when Jared Goff looked his direction. Kupp's array of receptions included an inside screen, multiple deep crossing routes, and two wide open touchdowns, his first of the season. Kupp has yet to see fewer than nine targets in a game this season and has looked outstanding following his 2018 season-ending injury.
2019 Week 2 vs NO (9 / 5 / 120 / 0 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Kupp nearly doubled any other Rams' passing game target in the Week 2 win over the Saints. Kupp looked far more comfortable than his lack-of-yards-after-catch effort in Week 1, his first game back from injury. Kupp made a diving reception over the middle, plus two highlight runs and a myriad of missed tackles down to the goal line, essentially a game-clinching play for the Drew Brees-less Saints. Kupp has yet to find the end zone but his 12 receptions over two games and after-catch uptick in Week 2 are positive signs to start the season.
2019 Week 1 vs CAR (10 / 7 / 46 / 0 rec)
Kupp's offensive involvement against the Panthers, his first game back from injury in 2018, was front-loaded to the early moments. Kupp had four receptions on the opening drive alone, adding two third-down conversions later in the game to bolster his volume-infused stat line. Kupp's targets were all close to the line of scrimmage and Kupp offered minimal yards-after-the-catch opportunity on his receptions.
