2018 Fantasy Outlook
Cooper is coming off a Pro Bowl campaign where he proved to be a lethal returner. His wideout abilities don't fit the standards of a fantasy asset, however, as he's had just 25 receptions for 190 yards and zero touchdowns over two NFL seasons -- not to mention Brandin Cooks signing during the offseason.

The Rams officially activated Cooper (ankle) from injured reserve ahead of Monday's game against the Chiefs, Clarence Dennis of the team's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
As anticipated, Cooper will be ready to make his first appearance since Week 1 after enduring no complications with his ankle upon returning to practice last Tuesday. Per Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News, Cooper is likely to immediately recapture duties as the Rams' top kickoff returner, though JoJo Natson is expected to retain his gig as the team's No. 1 punt returner for at least one more game. Cooper could also quickly settle into a depth role at receiver, though he likely won't see the field for much more than the occasional gadget play or in instances where the Rams deploy four-wideout sets. Robert Woods, Brandin Cooks and Josh Reynolds are locked in as the Rams' clear top three options at receiver.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Los Angeles selected Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds in the 2017 NFL Draft to beef up its receiving corps, and with a new coaching regime, Cooper's role in the passing attack is unknown. The former Gamecock caught 14 of 20 targets for just 106 yards during his rookie campaign and probably will never be a great fit as a traditional outside receiver. With Tavon Austin likely the better slot option and talent for gadget plays, Cooper will struggle to move the fantasy needle in his sophomore season, especially with Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods also on the roster. Still, the 22-year-old wideout is a talented athlete and owns big-play ability, so there's some long-term upside. It just might take a change of scenery for Cooper to reach it.
Cooper played a Tavon Austin-type role at South Carolina before being drafted in the fourth round in April, catching passes and getting occasional carries. The only problem is that the Rams already have Austin, so that somewhat clouds Cooper's fantasy prospects. His poor showing at the combine also casts concern over his outlook as a catch-and-run specialist. That being said, if he can really produce in the preseason, he has a shot at the fourth wideout spot in a Los Angeles that finished last in total yards last season.
