2024 Fantasy Outlook
Atwell looked like a breakout player after three games last year. During that time, he caught 17 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown. Atwell slowed down after that stretch, largely due to decreased usage in the offense. Then, after the Week 10 bye, the veteran mostly disappeared from the offense. Aside from a game in which Atwell had three catches for 76 yards, the receiver posted a total of 33 yards in the last six games. It should be noted that Atwell was phased out while DeMarcus Robinson took on a major role. Going into his fourth season, Atwell would have enhanced value if coach Sean McVay restored the role Atwell had early in 2023. At this point, that seems unlikely. Read Past Outlooks

Falls out of starting role
WRLos Angeles Rams
January 15, 2024
Atwell finished the 2023 regular season with 39 receptions for 483 yards and three touchdowns and five rushes for 31 yards.
ANALYSIS
This season was supposed to be the next step up for the big-play threat, and in his first four games he looked like he was on that path as he put up an impressive 22-270-1 receiving line. Things went downhill from there, however, as Atwell put together just 11 catches for 197 yards and two touchdowns over his next seven games before losing his starting role to Demarcus Robinson. In the Rams' playoff loss to the Lions, Atwell burned past Kindle Vildor for a 38-yard touchdown but didn't get another touch the rest of the way, similar to the final six games of the regular season with just 40 snaps on offense before being used as a starter in the season finale with Puka Nacua, Cooper Kupp and Robinson all getting rest. Atwell has one year remaining on his rookie contract, but with Nacua and Kupp now entrenched as the top two targets for Matthew Stafford, it'll be difficult for the Louisville product to carve out a role beyond the third or fourth option at wide receiver.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Opening season in No. 2 role
WRLos Angeles Rams
September 8, 2023
Atwell is slated to serve as the Rams' No. 2 receiver for Sunday's Week 1 clash against the Seahawks due to Cooper Kupp being ruled with a hamstring injury, Jordan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The speedy third-year wideout will be an interesting fit as a No. 2 wideout, considering his 5-foot-9, 165-pound frame. Atwell finished last season with a 17-244-1 line on 31 targets over the eight full games Kupp missed after suffering a season-ending ankle injury. However, considering No. 1 receiver Van Jefferson also has plenty of speed and both Ben Skowronek and Demarcus Robinson have size and experience advantages over Atwell, either might ultimately prove better suited for the No. 2 role if Kupp's injury extends to multiple games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2022
2021
The burner from Louisville finally got a chance to showcase his speed last season after failing to record a touch in eight games in 2021. In his final 10 appearances (four starts), Atwell had a 18-298-1 line on 33 targets, including a 62-yard touchdown reception Week 11. He also added nine carries for 34 yards and one more TD. The 2021 second-rounder likely will enter his third year in the NFL as the Rams' primary punt and kick returner with Brandon Powell off to Minnesota, and Atwell should be used as a field-stretching dynamo in the passing game. Durability always is a concern for the 5-9, 165-pound wideout, and feast or famine seems like the outcome Atwell will have in the fall.
The 2021 second-round speedster out of Louisville primarily was used as a punt and kick returner as a rookie, and Atwell looked like he would find some playing time when DeSean Jackson requested a trade before Week 8. A shoulder injury during that game against the Texans instead sidelined Atwell for the rest of the season. With Odell Beckham and Robert Woods also departing, Atwell should find some snaps as a wide receiver while retaining his role as a returner and could push Ben Skowronek for playing time as the No. 4 wideout for the Rams.
It will be interesting to see how involved Atwell, a 2021 second-round pick, is in the passing attack as a rookie. The Rams already have Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods atop the depth chart, and 2020 second-rounder Van Jefferson also should see more snaps this year. Additionally, veteran DeSean Jackson is a proven field stretcher, so Atwell could be eased in and not play consistently. Considering Los Angeles didn't give Jefferson many opportunities in his rookie year, the draft capital invested in Atwell isn't a guarantee he'll be heavily involved in the offense.
