2020 Fantasy Outlook
Set to battle for playing time with 2020 second-round selection Van Jefferson, Reynolds finds himself in a make-or-break season with Los Angeles. Reynolds has received semi-regular stints of playing time in each of his first three years in the league, but the 25-year-old receiver has failed to fully capitalize on his opportunities. He's a slim 6-3, 196, but his athleticism has enabled him to record 14 catches of 20-plus yards the past two seasons. Plus, he was billed as a potential red-zone weapon after scoring 12 touchdowns as a senior at Texas A&M during the 2016 campaign. Entering the final season of his rookie contract, Reynolds will be given another opportunity early on, but he'll have to impress to prevent Jefferson from cutting into his playing time and/or leapfrogging him entirely on the depth chart.

No lock to climb depth chart
WRLos Angeles Rams
April 25, 2020
Reynolds will compete for playing time this season with 2020 second-round selection Van Jefferson (foot), Lindsey Thiry of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Interestingly, after receiving a vote of confidence from head coach Sean McVay in early April, the organization selected Jefferson in the second round Friday. Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp are locked in as the top two receivers on the depth chart, and there's no guarantee Reynolds maintains his position as the No. 3 receiver throughout the season. The 2017 third-round pick has received chances to prove himself over the first three years of his career but has failed to fully capitalize on his opportunities. It will be important to monitor Jefferson's health entering the season after he underwent foot surgery in February. If the rookie is healthy, Reynolds' fantasy value will probably take a hit.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2018
2017
Reynolds benefited from Robert Woods missing time with a shoulder injury in 2017, and Cooper Kupp's knee injury last season also opened the door for the Texas A&M product to make a fantasy impact as a sophomore. However, the 6-3 Reynolds has failed to fully capitalize on his opportunity in consecutive seasons and projects to open 2019 fourth on the depth chart behind Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. Still, it's too early to completely write off Reynolds, and if he's propelled into semi-consistent offensive snaps, he's flashed fantasy potential.
Coming out of Texas A&M last spring, the 6-3 Reynolds profiled as a potential impact contributor near the goal line. However, he wound up getting only a few opportunities there and ultimately managed just one touchdown on eight red-zone targets. Things could be different in 2018 now that he has a professional offseason under his belt as well as the fact the Rams roster markedly improved this offseason. With that said, the upside here is maybe three touchdowns and a couple hundred receiving yards as long as he remains buried on the depth chart.
After posting an excellent 2016 season with Texas A&M (61 receptions for 1,039 yards and 12 touchdowns), Reynolds impressed at the combine with a 4.52-second 40-yard dash, 37-inch vertical, 124-inch broad jump and 6.83-second three-cone drill. He's a slim 6-3 at just 194 pounds but has the ball skills to be an end-zone threat immediately. Additionally, Reynolds also boasts the straight-line speed to spread the field. Having said that, any illusions he'd carve out a role were quelled when the Rams acquired Sammy Watkins in the midst of the preseason, making it difficult to earn snaps with wide receivers Robert Woods, Tavon Austin and fellow rookie Cooper Kupp also in the corps.
