After an entire week building up to a likely start for Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods, he has been ruled inactive for his team's Week 11 home matchup with the Chicago Bears on "Sunday Night Football."

While the exact reasoning behind the late scratch is still unknown, it's unlikely the result of anything injury related after Woods led the Rams in receiving yards (95) with seven catches in Week 10 on his team's second-most targets (11) behind tight end Gerald Everett.

Considering Woods has missed just one game due to injury back in Week 6 this season, it seems unlikely this scratch is injury related.

As a result of Woods' unexpected absence, look for a boost in usage for Cooper Kupp, Gerald Everett and Josh Reynolds.

Kupp had an uncharacteristically poor performance in Week 10 in LA's 17-12 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, with a total of zero receptions on just four targets. That was the first time Kupp had been held without a catch when he had seen at least two targets.

Prior to being ruled as inactive for Sunday night, Woods was listed as our WR28 in The Duel's Week 11 fantasy football standard scoring rankings and WR29 in our Week 11 fantasy football PPR scoring rankings.
