3 Cooper Kupp Waiver Wire Wide Receiver Replacements

If you're a Cooper Kupp owner, then you're in serious need of another WR2/3 to get you through the rest of the season after the wideout tore his ACL in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Seahawks. The waiver wire is pretty scarce of talent at this point, but there are a few diamonds in the rough that could admirably replace Kupp's production.


Here are three waiver wire options to replace Kupp in your fantasy lineup.

3. Brandon Marshall, WR, New Orleans Saints

Risky? Yes, but Brandon Marshall probably has the highest ceiling out of anyone on this list, thanks to the slew of injuries to the Saints' receiving corps. It's more likely than not that he will immediately slot in as the team's No. 2 receiver and should see plenty of targets from Drew Brees, especially in the red zone where he has the ability to win on 50-50 jump balls.

Anthony Miller has really come on over the past four weeks, culminating in his five-catch, 122-yard performance against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The rookie wideout has seen at least six targets in his last four games and has only recorded less than double-digit PPR points in one of those contests. This all points to a high floor in a potent offense moving forward.

Who else should top the list but the next man up in Los Angeles? Josh Reynolds has played sparingly this season, but did an amazing job filling in for Kupp in Week 8 against the Packers when he caught three balls for 42 yards and two touchdowns. That shows that the second-year wideout already has the trust of QB Jared Goff, meaning he could seamlessly put up similar numbers to Kupp just in time for the fantasy playoffs.
