What to do with Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Josh Reynolds in Week 16 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Josh Reynolds ahead of the Rams Week 16 matchup against the Seahawks.

With quarterback Jared Goff averaging just 265 yards per game, his lowest output since 2017, there haven’t been a lot of fantasy points to spread around among the Los Angeles Rams wide receivers. So instead of two players who were regularly must-start fantasy options, we’ve got to try to decide between three which ones are viable this week when the Rams take on the Seahawks.

Fantasy Football analysis: Rams WRs Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Josh Reynolds

Woods has been the best of the bunch lately. He was the only one who produced any numbers worth commenting on last week in a humiliating loss to the Jets, hauling in six catches on seven targets for 56 yards and a touchdown. Kupp hasn’t had more than 40 yards in the last two weeks, and Reynolds hasn’t had more than 40 since Week 10.

The last time the Rams played the Seahawks, back in Week 10, Reynolds led the way with 94 yards. Woods had 33, and Kupp put up 50. There were no passing touchdowns in that one. Until Washington’s Terry McLaurin posted 77 yards last week, the last receiver with more than 75 yards against Settle was Reynolds. The Seahawks haven’t allowed an opposing wide receiver to score since Week 9.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Robert Woods is the only one here who’s definitely worth a spot in your lineup just because of his consistency lately. He’s a WR2. Kupp is risky WR3 or Flex play, and you can probably avoid Reynolds.
