Draft note
by John Paulsen
Even though he tore his ACL in November of 2018, Kupp finished the 2019 season as the No. 4 fantasy receiver (half-PPR) and didn’t miss a game. After starting the season with four 100+ yard games in his first five weeks and then lighting up the Bengals for 7-220-1 in Week 8, his snaps declined late in the year. The Rams played more two-TE sets to counter defenses stacking the line of scrimmage to slow down the L.A. running game, and that sent Kupp to the bench. (That’s one reason Tyler Higbee went off late in the year.) Still, Kupp managed to produce in those final weeks, catching a touchdown in five straight games to close the season even though he only saw 30 targets in that span. With Brandin Cooks out of the way, Kupp’s snaps should land in the 80%-90% range, though it’s possible that his decline in playing time continues into 2020.

LAR WR Cooper Kupp - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Last season was by far Cooper Kupp’s best season as his 94 receptions for 1161 yards and 10 touchdowns were all career-bests. Kupp was one of the best WRs to own in fantasy before his Week 9 bye as he had five games in that eight-game span with over 100 yards including one for a season-best 220 yards right before the bye. However, immediately after that, his usage took a steep decline as the offense moved away from their signature three-WR sets to heavier two-TE set to help quell their offensive line woes. Even though Kupp’s usage was not the same, he scored a touchdown in each of the last five games, still proving his ability to be productive in any version of this Ram’s offense.

Fantasy Downside

Despite Kupp's WR4 finish in half-PPR leagues last year, there were plenty of red flags that should be concerning for 2020. Kupp seemingly took a back seat to Tyler Higbee towards the end of the season as their two-TE set proved to beneficial to the entire offense—often being benched throughout the game by Sean McVay. The team’s willingness to trade away Brandin Cooks further solidifies their stance on moving away from the 3-wide receiver set that brought Kupp so much success.
2020 Bottom Line

It will be interesting to see how this LA Rams offensive breaks down, as pending which way they decide to structure their offense is the deciding factor if Kupp is in store for another high-end WR1 season or a low-end WR3. We have Kupp ranked 12th amongst WRs and his current ADP in 12-team leagues has him going at the end of the third round. Kupp has always been incredibly productive when targeted, however, the number of targets he will get in 2020 might be too big of an unknown to take him as early as he is going.
