Woods had a career season last year, setting career highs in receptions (86), yards (1,219) and touchdowns (seven). He was 11th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. Woods had three 100-yard games and at least four receptions all but two games. He was super consistent in the Rams high-powered offense. He also ran 19 times for 157 yards and a score, padding his overall numbers even more. Woods will continue to start and serve a big role in the passing game. Woods knows how to get open and can make plays all over the field. Woods has the speed to stretch the field but also does well on shorter routes. He does lack a little strength, though, and could play with more toughness. Fantasy Outlook: Woods probably reached his celling last year, especially with Cooper Kupp out much of the sea-son. His numbers could regress a little, making him more of a top No. 2 for fantasy teams. Expect around 70 receptions for 1,000 yard and seven touchdowns.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods had his best season as a pro by a mile last year. He totaled career highs in every receiving and rushing category as he finished with 86 catches for 1,219 yards and six touchdowns. He also added 19 carries for 157 yards and a touchdown. Woods will likely still be the number one target in a prolific Rams offense, but he will be sharing targets and touches with a number of other studs. Fellow wideout Brandin Cooks was just a tick behind Woods last year, and wide receiver Cooper Kupp looks to return from his torn ACL this year. There's also stud running back Todd Gurley that was on a tear for much of last season. Woods is still a very good player, but the problem is he's surrounded by other very good players. The targets just won't be as plentiful for him. He should still have weeks where he features heavily to put up a WR1 statline, but he's likely going to finish as a WR3 next season. If you own him in dynasty, I'd sell him while his value is high, and make sure to avoid him in redraft unless he slides on draft day.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods didn't catch any of his four looks in the loss to the 49ers but managed to make some noise by running in a touchdown midway through the first quarter. With Cooper Kupp's efficient play this season, Woods continues to perform efficiently on an inconsistent basis. He should still remain a starter in deeper formats, with his stock rising for the Week 7 showdown against the struggling Falcons.
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods failed to catch any of his four targets and rushed twice for 16 yards and a touchdown in a 20-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.
Fantasy Spin: Normally one of the steadier receivers in the league, Woods was a non-factor in the passing game in an ugly offensive showing from the Rams as a whole. Expect a much better showing from Woods against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods returned back to Earth in Week 5 with five receptions on nine targets for just 48 yards. This followed a superhuman Week 4 performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where Woods had led the team in yardage, receptions, and targets. While the veterans inconsistency is concerning, his upside, especially in an offense that could be missing teammates Brandin Cooks and Todd Gurley for Week 6, makes him a must-start in most formats. He is no longer the target hog he once was, but you can expect Woods to have a WR3 floor with WR1 upside.
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods registered five receptions for 48 yards during the team's Week 5 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Fantasy Spin: Coming off a 164-yard performance in Week 4, Woods tallied fewer than 50 yards receiving for the third time in four weeks on Thursday. It's a disturbing trend, and while Woods has weekly upside, he's becoming a better play as a WR3 than a WR2.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods, after struggling in the first three weeks of the season, rebounded in a major way during the teams 55-40 defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Woods caught a team-high 13 passes for 164 yards and was the clear WR1 for the offense for most of the afternoon. With a showdown against the Seattle Seahawks on the horizon, fantasy owners should expect Woods to continue to garner significant volume (at least seven targets per game) early into the contest. However, if the game goes down to the wire, fantasy owners shouldnt be surprised if quarterback Jared Goff looks the way of teammate and wide receiver Cooper Kupp more often. Expect Woods to be a high-end WR2 in all formats, with a WR1 ceiling and low-end WR3 floor.
Rams' WR Robert Woods scored 29.40 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 4 loss against the Buccaneers. Woods caught 13 passes for 164 yards. It's the 1st time this season Woods scored at least 25 fantasy points in a game.
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods caught 13 of his 15 targets for 164 yards in a 55-40 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4.
Fantasy Spin: Woods was off to a sluggish start, and he basically doubled his production from the first three games. The passing attack of the Rams has been a little off this year, but Woods still possesses WR2 potential.
Rams' WR Robert Woods had 13 receptions for 164 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's loss against the Buccaneers.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods has continued to struggle in the passing game, finishing the teams Week 3 20-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns with three catches on eight targets for 40 yards. This reduced workload is a marked change from prior seasons for Woods, as one of the preseason positives in favor of drafting the veteran appeared to be his safe floor. Woods still is heavily involved in the offense and remains a top target for quarterback Jared Goff (look no further than his eight targets), but it seems the veteran has fallen behind his teammates Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp in regards to target share. With a matchup against a reeling Tampa Bay secondary that just gave 300-plus passing yards to a rookie on the horizon for Week 4, fantasy owners should consider Woods as a low-end WR2 in both standard and PPR formats. His days of having consistent volume are now gone, but there remains significant upside due to the explosiveness of the Rams offense, and many owners could do worse than having Woods as a flex play.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods caught three passes on eight targets for 40 yards in the teams 20-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns. For fantasy owners, Woods performance on Sunday night was frustrating. He remains an integral part of the offense and continues to be highly targeted, however, his usage remains volatile week-to-week as Goff remains focused on targeting teammate Cooper Kupp. Woods is likely a low-end WR2 option across all formats, but fantasy footballers should remain aware that the veteran could easily be the centerpiece of the Rams offense on any given week.
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods had three catches for 40 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 3. He also ran twice for 18 yards.
Fantasy Spin: In theory, the triumvirate of Woods, Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp is a 1a/1b/1c thing, but through three weeks Woods has lagged behind with just five receptions over the past two weeks after opening the season with an eight-catch performance. He's still a viable WR2 for now, but if things keep trending this way Woods could drop to WR3 status.
Cleveland Browns lockdown cornerback Denzel Ward (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night. Ward suffered a hamstring strain during practice this week and he is looking unlikely to take the field. Meanwhile, the team is more optimistic about rookie corner Greedy Williams (hamstring). If Ward is unable to play, that would be a huge boost to the Los Angeles wide receivers, namely Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks. In just over a year, Ward has established himself as one of the better lockdown corners in the NFL. His absence would create a huge void in the Cleveland secondary on Sunday night. You were probably starting them in season-long leagues anyways but both Woods and Cooks become much more interesting for DFS slates that include the Sunday night game.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods struggled in the teams Week 2 29-7 victory over the New Orleans Saints. After all, he only had two receptions on two targets for 33 yards. However, fantasy owners should treat Week 2 as an anomaly; Woods had multiple plays called back due to holding penalties and the game script aligned with a run-focused offensive scheme with the Rams leading for the majority of the contest. With a Week 3 matchup against the Cleveland Browns on the horizon, he should see a larger target share in what could end up being a high-scoring, offensive duel thanks to a potent Browns offense. Woods remains a mid-tier WR2 across all formats.
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods tallied two receptions for 33 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: Targeted a team-high 13 times in Week 1, Woods saw just two passes thrown his way Sunday. With so many options in the passing game there are always going to be games like this, and doubtless the loss of Drew Brees allowed the Rams to be more conservative than they may otherwise have been. Woods remains a WR2 entering Week 3.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods caught two passes on two targets for 23 yards in the teams 27-9 victory over the New Orleans Saints. While Woods had a few plays called back due to penalties, his performance on Sunday afternoon was disappointing as Woods was the clear WR1 for the team during Week 1. However, Woods should be able to rebound for the teams Week 3 contest. Expect the slot wide receiver to continue to be a WR2 option across all formats.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods caught eight passes on 13 targets for 80 yards in the teams 30-27 victory over the Carolina Panthers. Woods was the clear WR1 during Week 1, leading the team in targets, receptions and yards on an afternoon where quarterback Jared Goff only had 186 passing yards. Expect the slot wide receiver to continue to be a high-end WR2 option across all formats.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods appears to have the toughest matchup out of all the Rams receivers on Sunday, as he figures to see a lot of Panthers cornerback James Bradberry. Although Woods is sure to see a lot of Bradberry, the Rams will move the 27-year-old receiver around the formation to get him open. He was the model of consistency in 2018, failing to eclipse 10 PPR points only twice. Woods was able to produce those consistent numbers with and without Cooper Kupp in the lineup, which is impressive. The USC product is a high-floor, low-ceiling play that you can feel confident in this Sunday.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods did not play during the teams Week 4 preseason victory against the Houston Texans. Last year, he led the team in nearly all receiving categories, having the most targets (130), receptions (86), total yardage (1,219) and touchdowns (six). With consecutive successful fantasy seasons under his belt and an early fourth-round ADP, Woods is a high-end WR2 that can return low-end WR1 value. However, be wary that his numbers may dip with the return of teammate Cooper Kupp, who has historically been quarterback Jared Goffs favorite target.
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods said he is capable of building on his performance from 2018 and feels he will ultimately be rewarded for his play with a contract extension. 'And I just think my play will show it all,' Woods said. 'I feel like I will get what I deserve.'
Fantasy Spin: Woods emerged as a go-to receiver for the Rams and one of the steadiest players at the position for fantasy owners last year, delivering at least 70 yards in all but two games. He deserves to be considered a WR2 heading into 2019.
