TEN WR Robert Woods - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. New York Giants
Robert Woods enters his 10th NFL season as a member of the Titans looking to help fill the void left behind by A.J. Brown and Julio Jones in the Tennessee passing game. While Woods is past him prime at this point in his career and coming off a torn ACL, he is by far the most established pass catcher on the Tennessee depth chart and should not lack for attention on the occasions the Titans decide to throw. Woods participated in most of the team's offseason program and has reportedly developed a solid rapport with Ryan Tannehill. Woods isn't an exciting fantasy play, but he should have a flex-worthy floor, at least until rookie first-round pick Treylon Burks is fully worked into the lineup.

TEN WR Robert Woods - 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

2022 Fantasy Upside
Robert Woods is now in Tennessee via trade as the Titans acquired the veteran from the Rams in exchange for a sixth-round pick after he suffered a torn ACL to end his 2021 season last November. The good news on the health front is Woods participated in OTAs in June and reports regarding his recovery have been positive. The good news on the football front is Woods' lack of target competition in his new offense. The Titans drafted Treylon Burks in the first round and the rookie will surely command a decent target share in 2022, but A.J. Brown and Julio Jones are both gone now, leaving a massive hole in the team's target distribution in their wake. Woods had a reduced role in LA with Matthew Stafford under center, but a move to Tennessee fits Woods well as he has always been a great run blocker and as a result should see a ton of snaps working in front of Derrick Henry. If Woods' health cooperates, he has value as arguably the top target in the Titans passing game as Burks works his way into the pro ranks.

2022 Fantasy Downside
Needless to say, a 30-year-old wideout coming off an ACL tear has some red flags when it comes to fantasy. Woods only lasted nine games last year before going down with the serious knee injury, and at 30 his injury risk will only climb from here on out. Woods is also moving from the high-flying, new-look Rams offense to Tennessee, who would prefer to feed Derrick Henry than air it out with Ryan Tannehill and regularly play one of the most run-heavy styles in the NFL. Woods is not much of a big-play threat at this stage, meaning volume is an important factor to his production. Woods was already relegated to borderline starter status last year when Cooper Kupp emerged to dominate targets in LA, and if Burks emerges quicker than expected or Woods just cannot get right physically, that trend could continue in 2022.

2022 Bottom Line
Woods certainly comes with plenty of risk given his age and recent injury issues, but his current ADP is outside the top 100 picks and there is a strong possibility he leads the Titans in targets and catches this season. If Woods falls into the later rounds, he is a great value as a WR2/Flex target.

LAR WR Robert Woods - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at San Francisco 49ers

Woods saw double-digit targets for the first time since Week 5 during Week 9’s game. He could see the same again in Week 10 if RB Darrell Henderson (game) has to miss the game. The 49ers have done well to only allow one receiver to produce, so know that Woods still carries volatility, especially with Cooper Kupp dominating weekly. Woods is a WR2 Week 10.

LAR WR Robert Woods - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 versus Tennessee Titans

His versatility benefitted his fantasy day in Week 8 and can do the same against Tennessee in Week 9. The Titans are 31st in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed to wideouts and face one of the best trios in football. Woods is a locked-in starter with a chance to be a WR1 with teammate Cooper Kupp.

LAR WR Robert Woods - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Houston Texans

If Cooper Kupp was not having one of the best individual receiving seasons in recent history, Robert Woods’s numbers would not seem so mediocre. Woods has topped double-digit fantasy points in six of seven games in half and full-point PPR formats. His target share is well behind Kupp’s which is also an issue when hoping for spike weeks in the same stratosphere as his teammate’s. Houston is top five against opposing receivers, but that is subjective considering how poor the Texans run defense is. Woods is a WR2/3 against one of the worst defenses in football.

LAR WR Robert Woods - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs Lions

Woods salvaged his Week 6 with a touchdown as Cooper Kupp was the main target. His five targets were his fewest since Week 1 but part of that is hard to do with the Rams curb-stomping the Giants. The Lions are even worse against the run than New York, which puts into question how high the ceiling can be for Woods. He will be a WR2 with potential to be a borderline WR1 if he can out-target Kupp.

LAR WR Robert Woods - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Giants

The squeaky wheel always gets the grease. Roberts Woods was the lead dog in receiving production for the Rams Week 5 and out-targeted teammate Cooper Kupp for the first time this season. Next up is a trip to New Jersey to take on the 24th-ranked defense in aFPA to wide receivers. Outside receivers have recorded either 60 yards receiving or a touchdown each week this season.
