The Rams made one of the offseason’s biggest moves, jettisoning former first-round pick Jared Goff and upgrading the quarterback position with Matthew Stafford. That’s going to make head coach Sean McVay’s team a far more potent offense than we’ve seen so far, even the high-flying version we saw march to the Super Bowl in 2018. With so many points and passing yards to go around, that bodes well for their receivers’ production totals this season, something to remember as you venture into the offseason prop bet market.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

1005.5 receiving yards: Over (-130) or Under (+100)

Our pick: Over

Kupp has only topped the 1,000-yard mark once in his career, but it’s important to note that he did that with Jared Goff at quarterback. He came pretty close last year, racking up 974 yards in just 15 games with Goff under center. With Matthew Stafford in the fold under Sean McVay, the Rams are going to throw the ball a lot, so even now that he’s not working as a safety blanket for Goff, Kupp will get plenty of looks in this offense.

6 receiving TDs: Over (-130) or Under (+100)

Our pick: Over

Kupp saw a drop in touchdowns last season, scoring just three after finding the end zone 10 times in 2019 and six the year before that. It’s not worth reading too much into his touchdown totals from 2020. He’s a reliable pass catcher in the end zone, and should easily find pay dirt in this offense for more than half a dozen.
