2019 Fantasy Outlook
Woods built on his 2017 breakout with a 130-86-1,219-6 line in his second season with the Rams. Moreover, he retained his high efficiency - 9.4 YPT (9th) and reeled in 20 catches of 20-plus yards (T-8th) despite being only 13th in targets. Woods is not a downfield threat, however - no catches of 40-plus yards in 2018 and only four in his six-year career. He has just average size (6-0, 195) and his speed (4.51 40) is similarly pedestrian. Woods excels with his route running, toughness and first-rate hands - only three drops all year. It also helps that the Rams consistently scheme their receivers open. Woods didn't see a ton of red-zone work (12 targets inside the 20, eight inside the 10), and caught only six touchdown passes all year. His role shouldn't change much in 2019, but Cooper Kupp is on track to return after missing most of the year with a torn ACL, potentially costing Woods a few targets. The Rams also used Woods as a rusher last year - 19 carries for 157 yards and a TD - something that adds a little to his overall value. Read Past Outlooks

October 13, 2019
Woods failed to catch any of his four targets and had two carries for 16 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-7 loss to the 49ers.
ANALYSIS
Woods' afternoon started brightly enough, as the wideout received a pair of carries on the opening drive, including an eight-yard touchdown scamper to cap it off. He made no further statistical contributions, however, as an anemic showing by the passing attack saw him finish without a catch for the first time in nearly four calendar years. It's been a tough start to the season for Woods, who's exceeded 50 receiving yards just twice in six games and is still in search of his first receiving touchdown. Next Sunday's road matchup against the Falcons could present him with opportunities to get back on track.

2014
2013
Woods was a garden-variety possession receiver with little upside - or so we thought. That was before he got to play in the Rams' dynamic offensive system. Woods averaged 9.2 YPT (8th among the league's 44 85-target WR) in 12 games, scored five times and had five games with 70 or more receiving yards. At 6-0, 193, Woods has only average size, and his 4.51 speed is similarly unremarkable. But he's quick, runs crisp routes and has good hands. More important, the Rams effectively scheme to get their receivers open, and Jared Goff is good enough to find them, usually with a fair amount of space to run after the catch - both Woods and teammate Cooper Kupp were among the top 30 WR in YAC, and remember Woods played only three quarters of the season. In 2018, Woods should once again be one of Goff's top targets, though Brandin Cooks - acquired from New England - will replace the departed Sammy Watkins, possibly cutting into Woods' target share.
On its face, Los Angeles seems like a bad landing spot, with one of the league's worst QB situations. But opportunity is king, and given the sparseness of the Rams' depth chart, Woods should get it. At 6-0, 190, Woods has average size, and his 4.51 40 speed is similarly average. But Woods is quick, runs precise routes and has reliable hands. Don't expect big plays -- zero 40-yard catches over the last three years -- and he's never been much of a red-zone presence. Woods has been afforded familiarity with the acquisition of Sammy Watkins, his teammate of three seasons in Buffalo, giving the Rams a receiver to take the top off defenses. Consequently, Woods will be running his customary underneath routes, while the 5-8, 176-pound Tavon Austin gets to work in space as both a pass-catcher and rusher.
Heading into the 2016 campaign, Woods will enter the season a lot healthier than last year. Of course, Sammy Watkins will get most of the targets, but with his health always a question mark and no clear No. 3 or 4 receiver behind him, Woods could see a lot of single coverage and secondary targets. A step up from his 47 catches for 552 yards in 14 games a year ago is not out of the question.
Woods saw more volume last year (104 targets), but he ran mostly short routes with EJ Manuel and Kyle Orton under center, and his efficiency (10.8 YPC, 6.7 YPT) declined as a result. This year, the Bills have a new coach (Rex Ryan), a new offensive coordinator (Greg Roman), a new quarterback (probably Matt Cassel, though Manuel will compete with him in camp) and new receiving threats in Percy Harvin and tight end Charles Clay, with whom Woods will compete for targets. The only certainty is the offense will run through newly acquired tailback LeSean McCoy and last year's No. 4 overall pick, WR Sammy Watkins. At 6-0, 190, with 4.51 40 speed, Woods profiles as a possession receiver with good quickness and route-running skills. Don't expect a lot of red-zone work or downfield playmaking, but Woods should carve out a role moving the chains.
Between Woods suffering an ankle injury and fellow rookie quarterback EJ Manuel missing time, don't make too much of last year’s results. Woods showed flashes at times – a string of four games from Weeks 2-5 where he topped 60 yards three times, and a two-game 152 yard stretch late in the year where he scored a touchdown. At 6-0, 190, Woods has just average size, and his 4.51 40 speed is middle-of-the-road as well. But he’s a smooth strider with good quickness and a polished route runner for a young receiver. He’ll vie for targets with rookie Sammy Watkins and recently signed Mike Williams.
The Bills' second-round pick last April, Woods has a decent chance to emerge from training camp as a starter opposite Steve Johnson. At 6-1, 190 and with merely decent speed Woods is more polished than most rookies, and his smoothness as a runner and ability to stop and start quickly allow him to get open in the short and intermediate areas of the field. Woods probably isn't going to make a lot of big plays, however, and he’s unlikely to be a major factor in the red zone, even if he does win the job.
