E.Washington WR Cooper Kupp

Recommended Posts

My options are 4 of: Kupp, Diggs, Sutton, Gallup, Godwin. I very well may bench Kupp for the playoffs, if I make it

BTW Yes I know Goff sucks. But also keep in mind, Kupp's 3 game slump also coincided with the Rams facing three tremendous pass defenses that can rush the QB (PIT, CHI, BAL). I don't think they will have that issue the next two weeks (vs ARI & SEA) even if they are on the road. Looking forward, I think hes a start the next two weeks and a bench the final two weeks (vs DAL, SF).

Why not Seattle?  They have an above average D and they are at home pushing for playoff position against a crumbling LAR team NOT pushing for playoff position.

Seattle's defense is pretty bad. He torched them last time.

Had that one drive else he's a blocking back now.

Yep he is nothing more than a 5 for 50 player now. Geez my entire dynasty team is garbage. And if you think I'm exaggerating look at this.. goff, russell Wilson,  Barkley,  kerryon Johnson,  kupp, juju, davante, lockett..absolute pile of trash when I thought I would walk away with the title.

I actually might have made a mistake last week not trading him and T. Coleman for Chubb.

I started him and am happy with the output considering how poor the Rams offense has been performing lately. Just wondering what I was missing based on the comments.

Unfortunately I still may have to start him next week. I went from stacked WRs of Adams, Kupp, TY, and Chark to now wondering if I should bench them all except Adams.

I have most of the same WRs and even even davante is nothing but a check down now, although he did score twice today. But if he doesn't score you're looking at squat.

I probably would have done that even when Kupp was on fire...

Uhhhh he’s barely playing. Reynolds is on the field more, they’re going 2 TEs a lot, and Higbee/Woods get every target.

Infrequently as well. I guess they’re committing to the run more. 2 TEs and the bigger Reynolds in at wr has been their most common grouping it seems.

Can you do that again about midway through the third?

Gonna have to seriously contemplate benching him next week

Goff is a pumpkin and it results in Kupp being TD dependant. I wouldnt blame you. I may bench too

Cooper Kupp caught four passes for 45 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against Seattle.

Kupp was left wide open for a 10-yard TD. There weren’t many notable plays from him in this one, with half his yards coming on a 21-yard catch. The touchdown was Kupp’s second in as many weeks but he hasn’t went over 65 yards since Week 8. With Jared Goff trending up, Kupp will be a WR2 play against Dallas in Week 15.

Not really due to Goff. More due to Kupp barely being on the field. Hopefully it was just a matchup thing because the game vs Dallas he could eat.

I want to see the snap counts from last night.  Agree.  He was barely on the field.  Almost only a 3rd down specialist.  All 2 TE sets with Woods and McReynolds.  Pretty disappointing but luckily the TD saved a disaster outing again.

Yep, Dallas got destroyed by Cole Beasley under neath so Kupp could be in for a solid game.

They don't have editors or educated writers, I guess.

Dude played 20 snaps. Yikes

Hard to see this being a trend.

at ARIZ:  72%
vs. BAL:  98%
vs. CHI:  98%
at PIT:  92%
at CIN:  97%
at ATL:  62%

I'm not going to go any further.  Up until this game, he played virtually the entire game in games that were competitive.  Hard to see this being anything but a statistical aberration.

Cooper Kupp only played on 29% of snaps last week. The #Rams opted for more 2-TE sets and used Robert Woods (99%) and Josh Reynolds (66%) right off the o-line to help block. Kupp was on the field for some passing downs and when LA went no huddle but that was basically it.

The power run game with Gurley has 2 TEs in a heavy set instead of 11 personnel, Woods is a better blocker than Kupp so Kupp gets the boot. Passing in this formation has Goff targeting Woods and Higbee and they have been running both on misdirection plays. Long story short, Kupp can't be trusted right now.

Im guessing Reynolds is also a better blocker than Kupp. But that was the only game they ran that formation so exclusively. I SERIOUSLY doubt they're gonna sit one of their best offensive weapons that much again. That's just bad coaching. It was good coaching the last game but I think it was just a matchup thing.

I think going forward the offense will run through Gurley until proven that it shouldn’t. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kupp continued to play less snaps unless they fall behind.

Went back and forth this morning about benching him for Anthony Miller. Ultimately stuck with him because if what Beasley did against Dallas. Mistake probably cost me the win.

Goff is part of it but doesn’t explain all of it. Just hasnt been used much and don’t understand it. Ever since his monster game. Thought he was going to bounce back today. Maybe playing catch up will get him some points

At first, I was afraid. I was petrified. Thinking how I left AJ Brown on my bench for Cooper Kupp. But then Dalvin Cook went down with an injury, and my hopes for a win grew strong. and I realized then that I would move on...

Great coaching, funny how they just phased their best receiver right out their weekly game plans. But wait, Mcvay is a genius. Oh that's right, they are missing the playoffs. what a dope.

I mean...I love seeing the Rams get their ### kicked, but what a dumb-### game plan to take one of your best weapons completely out of it.
