The Los Angeles Rams have a trio of talented receivers that are all capable of changing the game on any given play. While it's a great problem for the Rams to have, choosing one of the three wideouts can frustrate season-long owners and DFS players alike.


Robert Woods took the lead in Week 5 after Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp both suffered concussions. With the two expected to be cleared to play this Sunday against the Denver Broncos, the wealth will have to be split three ways this weekend.


While Woods and Cooks are fine fantasy options, the trust that Rams quarterback Jared Goff has in Kupp gives him much more potential than the other wideouts. Kupp may be tied with Woods for total targets on the year, but he has a commanding lead in red-zone targets over the rest of the receiving corps.

Kupp's 11 red-zone targets this year are tied for fifth most in the league, according to Pro Football Reference, and he leads Cooks by four and Woods by a whopping six.


Cooks is dynamic and capable of a home-run play on any given snap and Woods is a reliable possession receiver that sees a lot of targets. However, Kupp is the right receiver to start, especially in PPR formats. He has seen the same volume of targets as Woods and is Goff's go-to receiver in the red zone.
