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.
