Week 6 vs San Francisco 49ers
Cooper Kupp continued his torrid streak in Week 5 despite seeing his lowest snap share of the season at 67%. Kupp was targeted 17 times for an absurdly high target rate of 35.4%, and he turned that volume into nine receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown, making him the fantasy WR9 for Week 5. Overall, Kupp stands as the fantasy WR3, heights that even his most ardent offseason supporters could not have expected him to reach.
Kupp faces the 49ers defense in Week 6, and he'll see frequent coverage from slot cornerback K'Waun Williams, which should be a challenging matchup. Despite San Francisco having held wide receivers to a fourth-best 28.4 aFPA, Vegas projects this to be the third-highest scoring game of the week, giving the Rams an implied team total of 26 points. Kupp continues to be heavily targeted in the red zone, and his three red-zone touchdowns are tied for second-most. Despite the difficult matchup, Kupp is simply seeing too much target volume to even consider benching him right now.
