Titans beat writer Joe Rexrode writes that WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine “continues to make strides as a playmaker.” Last year, Westbrook-Ikhine posted 38-476-4 after a non-existent rookie season. There’s not much in his profile to get excited about, but the 25-year-old does bring plus size at 6’3, 219 pounds. Potential opportunity is the biggest selling point here, as Robert Woods is coming off an ACL tear and Treylon Burks has struggled with his conditioning. Still, Westbrook-Ikhine is just a late-round flier in deep formats.

Titans WR Robert Woods was running through individual drills at Wednesday's OTA session. He's now close to 7 months removed from his torn ACL and seems to be on track in his rehab. Barring a setback, Woods has a good chance to be ready for Week 1.

Titans WR Robert Woods is happy with his recovery so far from last November's torn ACL. "I actually feel like they're kind of holding me back a little bit," Woods said. "I am trying to get back as well as I can, just doing everything (trainer) Todd Toriscelli has me doing, trying to stay focused and be patient with it. Right now I feel really, really good, getting going, being able to do some things." It sounds like Woods is on track to be ready for Week 1, which will be about 10 months after his knee injury.

In a video posted to Instagram, Titans WR Robert Woods appears to be moving around without issue. In the minute-long clip, the 30-year-old can be seen going through footwork drills and sprints at what looks close to full speed. Woods tore his ACL in mid-November, so he’ll be about 10 months removed from the injury come Week 1. We’ll track his rehab all summer long.

The Rams are trading WR Robert Woods to the Titans. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Tams are getting only a 2023 sixth-round pick. Woods lands in an offense with opportunity available, though Tennessee sported the league's 2nd most run-heavy attack last season. We'll also see about Woods' return from the ACL tear. He's OK in WR4 range of best-ball drafting right now. Woods' departure makes room for new Rams signee Allen Robinson to claim targets. Robinson looks good in WR3 range of current drafts with upside well into WR2 range.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Rams WR Robert Woods is "a prime trade candidate" after the team signed WR Allen Robinson in free agency. Schefter says the Rams began receiving calls after the Robinson signing. Woods is coming off a November ACL tear but is reportedly expected to be ready for training camp. The veteran wideout will turn 30 in April and still has 4 years remaining on his current deal.

Rams WR Robert Woods resumed jogging this week as he works through his recovery from a November 12 ACL tear. “It’s going really well,” Woods said from the Super Bowl. “Initially, you hear ACL injury and you think it’s over. Nah. Being able to recover from the surgery and be able to have a great rehab and team to get me back right, I’m progressing really well." Woods is tentatively expected to be cleared for spring minicamp. We'll continue to track his progress.

Rams WR Robert Woods is done for the season after suffering an ACL tear in Friday's practice. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Woods got up and finished practice and even talked with reporters afterward, unaware of the injury's severity. Woods' injury obviously gives a big boost to Odell Beckham Jr.'s upside and keeps Van Jefferson relevant. We're not adjusting our outlook for QB Matthew Stafford, thanks to Beckham's arrival.

The Rams have announced that they've agreed to terms with WR Odell Beckham Jr. That should make OBJ a top-3 wideout in 1 of the league's strongest offenses the rest of the way. Beckham's arrival effectively kills Van Jefferson's fantasy relevance. We'll see about the impact on fantasy outlooks for WRs Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods, as well as TE Tyler Higbee. Beckham will have a hard time delivering regular fantasy-starter production in such a crowded offense, but he'll present weekly upside at least into WR3 range.

Rams WR Robert Woods (foot) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Titans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we never heard any real concern about his status. Woods is safe to get into fantasy lineups.

Rams WR Robert Woods (foot) will play vs. the Titans tonight, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Woods only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we never sensed any concern about his status for this one. He's safe to get into fantasy lineups.

Rams WR Robert Woods (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 9. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but HC Sean McVay said that Woods will play against Tennessee on Sunday night. You can keep him penciled into fantasy lineups unless we hear otherwise.

Rams WR Robert Woods (foot) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. HC Sean McVay said earlier this week that he expects Woods to play vs. the Titans on Sunday night, but his status is definitely worth checking back on tomorrow. WR Van Jefferson would turn into a strong fantasy play if Woods is out.

Rams WR Robert Woods did not practice on Wednesday due to a foot issue. HC Sean McVay said that he expects Woods to play vs. the Titans on Sunday night, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Rams HC Sean McVay said the kind of thing this week that fantasy football players want to hear about WR Robert Woods: "This guy's a stud in every sense of the word. It is important to be able to get a handful of guys involved. That's something that I always want to continue to be intentional about. ... When Robert's involved, that's a good thing for the Rams offense. That's something that we want to continue to see displayed, but Robert is a leader, he's a captain and he's been doing a great job up to this point. We just need to get him some more opportunities and that starts with me." Woods sits well behind leader Cooper Kupp but has still seen the 2nd most targets among Rams through 4 games. After seeing 6 targets or fewer in 3 of the first 4 games, though, perhaps he'll find more passes coming his way Thursday night at Seattle. The Seahawks have provided a high-upside matchup for opposing offenses so far, including spending more defensive snaps on the field than any other team. If your lineup decisions are close for Week 5, we'd lean toward giving Woods a shot.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is inactive for today's Divisional Round game vs. the Packers. It's a significant loss. WRs Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson will take on bigger roles with Kupp out, but WR Robert Woods is a good bet to lead the way in targets.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp is out for Week 17 after testing positive for COVID, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We're expecting WR Robert Woods to play more snaps in the slot and get a boost in target share vs. the Cardinals. WRs Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson should also get more playing time. Of course, the upside is capped on this passing game with QB John Wolford under center.

Rams WR Robert Woods was added to the injury report and sidelined on Friday with a groin issue. He returned to a limited practice on Saturday and isn't listed on the final injury report. That means the Rams fully expect him to play against the Bears on Monday night. Woods can stay in fantasy lineups for now, but this is something to keep an eye on.

The Rams selected Florida WR Van Jefferson in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Scouts consider Jefferson 1 of the top route runners in this class. “He’s got size, really good quickness and route savvy,” an anonymous scout told The Athletic’s Bob McGinn. “He can separate. He’s going to be a really good pro.” Jefferson’s college career got off to a strong start when he ranked top 3 on Ole Miss in catches (49), yards (543) and TDs (3) as a redshirt freshman — notably finishing ahead of A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf. He flattened out from there, though. Jefferson posted a 42-456-1 line in 2017 before transferring to Florida, where he totaled 84 catches, 1,160 yard and 12 TDs over the past 2 seasons. He posted weak market shares in 2019 and ranked 24th in yards per route run among 30 of this year’s top WR prospects. Jefferson is also already 23 years old and is currently sidelined after undergoing surgery to repair a Jones Fracture in his right foot. He joins Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds in Los Angeles. Kupp and Reynolds are both set to be free agents after this season, while Woods is only signed through 2021.
