2018 Fantasy Outlook
Three receivers were taken in the top 10 of the 2017 draft and three more in the second round, but it was Kupp, a third-rounder, who led the class in catches and finished second in yards and TDs. At 6-2, 205, Kupp has good size but below-average speed (4.62 40 at the combine). He largely played out of the slot where his strong route running, unusual size for the position, good hands and high football IQ helped him find open spaces and make plays. It also helped to have offensive wizard Sean McVay calling plays and scheming him open. Accordingly, Kupp put up astoundingly efficient numbers for a slot man - 9.2 YPT and 14.0 YPC. His five touchdowns were disappointing given his 23 red-zone targets (T-2nd), though only seven of those looks were from inside the 10. In 2018, Kupp should largely reprise last year's role, though newly acquired Brandin Cooks likely will see more passes than the departed Sammy Watkins. Whether that cuts into Kupp's or Robert Woods' targets remains to be seen. Read Past Outlooks

Ruled out for Week 7

Knee - MCL
October 17, 2018
Coach Sean McVay said Kupp (knee) won't play Sunday against the 49ers, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
McVay hinted at a possible absence for Kupp earlier in the week and provided more definitive word Wednesday. With Kupp sidelined for at least one game, Josh Reynolds will join Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods in the three-wideout formations that comprise the vast majority of the Los Angeles offense. Given that he's recovering from an MCL sprain, Kupp is in danger of missing time beyond Week 7.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Kupp capped off his four years at Eastern Washington as the Division I leader in career receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. He also silenced concerns about the level of competition he faced in college with monster games against Washington State and Oregon (27 receptions for 452 yards and six touchdowns combined) over his final two seasons. However, his athleticism and ability to succeed as an outside receiver at the NFL level are in question. Kupp ran a mediocre 4.62 40-yard dash at the combine and primarily lined up out of the slot at Eastern Washington. While he's a natural pass catcher with a competitive edge, he'll be hard-pressed to carve out a role immediately following the acquisition of Sammy Watkins, creating a clear-cut top trio of wideouts along with Robert Woods and Tavon Austin.
