The Los Angeles Rams have Super Bowl hopes on their minds after an unstoppable 7-1 start to the campaign. They share the NFC West division lead with the 7-1 Arizona Cardinals and November could see one of these two powerhouse teams pull away.

Now, the league's best wide receiver has been named NFC Player of the Month.

NFC Player of the Month

The NFL announced Rams wideout Cooper Kupp as the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for October and for good reason. Kupp cemented his status as the league's top wide receiver in October and has pulled away on the league leaderboard.

Kupp ranks first in both receiving yards (924) and touchdowns (10) as he's caught an insane 70% of his targets. The chemistry with Matthew Stafford is clearly brewing as evidenced by Kupp's five-game streak in October.

The fifth-year Ram notched 38 receptions on 57 targets in October, turning in 557 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns.

Los Angeles looks to keep things rolling in Week 9 when they play host to the Tennessee Titans, a game in which Los Angeles is favored by 7.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook.
