Players are placed on COVID-19 reserve if they test positive or if they have close contact with someone who tested positive. It is unknown whether Kupp tested positive or is classified as a close contact. Kupp is the Rams’ leader this season with 92 catches and 974 yards. If he can’t be activated in time for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, that would be a major blow to the Rams’ hopes, the story went on to say. It could mean Reynolds and Jefferson see more snaps and action, but with Jared Goff out, the passing game is likely going to be limited for the Rams.
LAR WR Josh Reynolds - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Arizona
Reynolds led the team in receiving last week against the Seattle Seahawks as he caught 6-of-10 targets for 65 yards. With Cooper Kupp to miss the week’s game as he was placed in the COVID/reserved list, Reynolds will step into the No.2 receiver role, however it comes on a week with John Wolford will be starting for the injured Jared Goff. Reynolds cannot be trusted as anything more than a low-end WR3 this week.
