Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp had one of the biggest catches of this postseason in his last time out in a last-second victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has a matchup with the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game.
Fantasy Football analysis: Rams WR Cooper Kupp ($8,800)
Kupp caught a 44-yard pass to set up a game-winning field goal last weekend, and he put up monster numbers. He caught nine passes for 183 yards with a touchdown. During the regular season, Kupp led the league in receptions (145), yards (1,947) and touchdowns (16) as one of the top fantasy football players. He will go up against a San Francisco defense that ranks No. 6 in opponent passing yards per game, and they allowed Aaron Rodgers to complete 20-of-29 passes for 225 yards without a touchdown in a victory over the Green Bay Packers.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Kupp is undeniably the top wide receiver going into conference championship weekend, and he has 12 games in which he went over 100 yards in a game, so he’s about as reliable as it gets from a fantasy football perspective.
