The Los Angeles Rams emerged from the regular season with an NFC West title and for Monday’s Wild Card game, they will play host to a division rival in the Arizona Cardinals.

Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp was the biggest difference maker of any wideout in the league this season and will have an opportunity to make plays Monday night. We’ll go over his viability as an option in your DraftKings Daily Fantasy lineup.

Fantasy Football analysis: Rams WR Cooper Kupp ($9,000)

Kupp finished the season with the triple crown in receiving, leading the league in receptions (145), receiving yards (1,947), and touchdowns (16). That, of course, translated into him being the most effective DFS receiver in the league by averaging 27.8 points per game.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Kupp understandably carries a hefty price but its worth it for the instant impact he’ll have within your lineup. Start him against the Cardinals.
