News: 2 days agoKupp caught two of five targets for 41 yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the 49ers.
Spin: Kupp was held in check for most of the game and did little outside of shaking loose for a 33-yard gain in the third quarter. He gashed the talented Buccaneers defense for a season-high 145 yards in his prior outing, so his inability to make a notable impact in this one was likely a bit of a surprise for many fantasy managers. Kupp will look to bounce back next Sunday against a Cardinals team he touched up for 164 yards and two touchdowns over two meetings last season.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Kupp is a very tricky evaluation following a bizarre 2019 campaign that can be split into two distinct parts. During Weeks 1-12, Kupp played on 87% of snaps and handled a 25% target share. With Tyler Higbee taking on a larger role during Weeks 13-17, those rates dropped to 63% and 15%, respectively. Kupp still ended up fourth in fantasy points due to the strong start and an unsustainable level of touchdown production (10 TD, 5.6 OTD), but we can't overlook the Rams' scheme change in December. The departure of Brandin Cooks definitely helps, but Kupp is now safest-viewed as a mid-to-back-end WR2.
