Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin accumulated 838 receiving yards out of the slot in 2019 - the second-highest total in the league behind Cooper Kupp (853) - according to Pro Football Focus.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp recently posted a photo on Twitter and appeared to look more muscular than ever. The 27-year-old could be in store for an even more dominant season after pulling in 94 of his 134 targets for 1,161 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2019. He also served as one of the league's most efficient threats inside the 20-yard line and could see all of his numbers increase with the departure of Brandin Cooks, who was traded to the Houston Texans in April.
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught 69 passes while lined up as the slot receiver during the 2019 season, which was tied for the most among wide receivers.
Fantasy Spin: Kupp likely will receive even more targets this upcoming season with Brandin Cooks gone, but it is not known if he will move to the outside or stay as a slot receiver. He is one of the better options in point-per-reception leagues and should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led the league in 2019 with 853 receiving yards from the slot, according to Pro Football Focus data.
Fantasy Spin: It will be interesting to see if Kupp plays outside more now that Brandin Cooks has been traded, and we could see Josh Reynolds working more from the slot. That could hurt some of Kupp's fantasy value, but he's still the best pass-catching fantasy option on the Rams as a WR2.
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp has seen his average depth of catch decline each year, going from 9.0 yards as a rookie in 2017 to 8.3 in 2018 and 7.0 in 2019.
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught 94 of his 134 targets in 2019, good for a reception rate of 70.1 percent. Only New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas had a better percentage (80.5) among qualifying wide receivers (at least 130 targets).
Fantasy Spin: The No. 2 touchdown-scoring receiver, Kupp finished as WR4 in conventional PPR formats last year. His target count could increase in 2020 after the release of RB Todd Gurley and trade of WR Brandin Cooks. Los Angeles QB Jared Goff already has an eye for Kupp at all three levels, and no offseason program could limit rookie WR Van Jefferson's ability to contribute early in the season. Kupp is a strong WR1 choice in all PPR fantasy drafts.
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led all receivers with 853 yards from the slot in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.
Fantasy Spin: The Rams are reportedly leaning toward running more two-tight sets in 2020, meaning Kupp may not get the same kind of opportunities inside that he has in previous seasons. Nevertheless, his route-running skills are sharp enough that he should be just fine working opposite Robert Woods if he sees significantly more time on the perimeter than he is used to. Owners should view him as a solid WR2 in drafts this summer.
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp was targeted 46 times in four September games and 41 times in four October games in 2019, but he saw a total of only 47 targets in his final eight outings.
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton led all receivers with 12 broken tackles on receptions in 2019. Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson, former Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins and Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp tied for second among receivers with nine.
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp finished in a tie for fifth in the league with 10 targets inside the 10 last season, but he finished with a league-best eight receptions and scored six touchdowns - tied for best in the NFL - with those opportunities.
