Rams HC Sean McVay announced Wednesday that certain starters won't play at all in the regular-season finale. He did not include WR Puka Nacua in that group. So what's the plan? Nacua sits 3 receptions and 28 yards shy of NFL rookie records in both categories. And it sounds like McVay wants to get him there. "I think you'd like to be able to see him get an opportunity to do something special and then be smart with him," the coach told reporters Wednesday. What's that mean? Expect Nacua to get early opportunities to reach those marks. And as soon as that happens, expect the team's leader in targets, catches, and receiving yards (by wide margins) to hit the bench. A 3-30 receiving line doesn't offer much fantasy help, so we'd lean away from playing Nacua in Week 18 lineups if you can help it. WRs Demarcus Robinson and Tutu Atwell and TE Davis Allen look like the best receiving bets for the Rams this week -- though we're all basically guessing at exactly how the Carson Wentz-led offense will look.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) is not listed on the final injury report for Thursday night's game vs. the Saints. He was splitting No. 3 WR duties with Demarcus Robinson last time we saw him. Atwell and Robinson are only in play in one-game DFS contests.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell cleared concussion protocol and will be back for Thursday night's game vs. the Saints, HC Sean McVay said. Atwell split No. 3 WR duties with Demarcus Robinson in his last two healthy games. Neither guy is a Week 16 fantasy option outside of one-game DFS contests.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Commanders. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so Atwell should be back for Week 16. His absence today leaves Demarcus Robinson as Los Angeles’ No. 3 WR. He has some deep-league and DFS appeal against Washington’s 32nd-ranked WR defense.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) is "unlikely" to play vs. the Commanders this afternoon, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Atwell was a full participant in Friday's practice but evidently hasn't been cleared for game action yet. He should be back for Week 16. Atwell's absence today leaves Demarcus Robinson as the Rams' No. 3 WR against the Commanders' 32nd-ranked WR defense.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Commanders. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so there’s a real chance that he’s cleared in time for Sunday’s kickoff. We should get another update on Atwell’s progress on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning. He’d be just a fantasy flier if he ends up playing – but would knock WR Demarcus Robinson back off the fantasy radar.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That at least gives him a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Commanders, although we'd still consider it unlikely. Check back tomorrow for another update on Atwell's progress.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He's unlikely to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Commanders, which would leave Demarcus Robinson as Los Angeles' No. 3 WR. That matchup against the league's worst WR defense would make Robinson worth a look in DFS and deep season-long fantasy leagues.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell is in the concussion protocol, according to The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue. We'll track Atwell's progress through the protocol this week, but he's unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Commanders. That'd leave Demarcus Robinson as Los Angeles' No. 3 WR -- and a potential deep-league flier against Washington's 31st-ranked WR defense.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell left Sunday's game vs. the Ravens to be checked for a concussion. We haven't seen it confirmed that Atwell is in the protocol, but he likely is after not returning to the game. Atwell's absence helped lead to a whopping 10 targets for WR Demarcus Robinson. He caught three for 46 yards and a score. With a Week 15 matchup vs. the Commanders on tap, Robinson could be in play as a deep-league fantasy play if Atwell is out.

Rams WR Tutu Atwell saw a season-low 5 targets in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, the first game with Cooper Kupp back from his hamstring injury. Atwell's 13.5% target share also marked a season low and a significant dip vs. the past two weeks. Atwell's target shares by week before Sunday went: 21%, 16.4%, 27.3%, and 22.5%. We'll see whether he can rebound going forward. But it'll be tough to feel good about starting him a week after Atwell trailed well behind both Kupp (12) and Puka Nacua (11) in targets.

Rams HC Sean McVay confirmed on Friday that WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) will play vs. the Eagles this weekend. The team has seemingly played it safe with Kupp's return from his recurring hamstring injury, so we'd expect him to be at least close to 100%. It's still possible that he's on some type of snap count on Sunday, but Kupp would be tough to leave out of Week 5 fantasy lineups considering his dominance since 2021. His return is an obvious threat to WR Puka Nacua and WR Tutu Atwell's volume -- although Nacua would also be nearly impossible to bench. See where all those guys sit in the Week 5 WR Rankings.

Rams WR Puka Nacua is incredible. His 39 catches through the first four games of his NFL career are the most all-time, and the rookie closed out Week 4 with his first career TD vs. the Colts. He led the team in receiving with 9 catches on 10 targets for 163 receiving yards. TE Tyler Higbee also paid off for fantasy managers, logging 5 catches on 11 targets for 64 yards. While his final stat line was a bummer (5 catches, 24 yards), WR Tutu Atwell remained heavily involved and should be a good candidate to bounce back next week vs. the Eagles. This Rams’ passing attack is turning out to be among the best in fantasy.

Rams WR Puka Nacua came back down to earth on Monday night, recording 5 catches on 7 targets for 72 yards vs. the Bengals. Week 3 also saw a solid effort from TE Tyler Higbee. He caught all 5 of his targets for 71 yards in the loss. Not to bury the lead here, but WR Tutu Atwell was extremely impressive in this one. He had an excellent 22-yard rush that nearly resulted in a TD to go on top of his 4 catches for 50 yards and a receiving score on a team-leading 9 targets. While the Rams may have lost this game, fantasy managers who roster these pass-catchers came out as winners. Let’s see if they can keep this production rolling in Week 4 vs. the Colts.

Rams WR Puka Nacua snagged 15 catches for 147 yards in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. That gives the rookie 25 receptions through his first two games, a new NFL record. Nacua drew a whopping 20 targets in the game, doubling his nearest teammate and accounting for 36.4% of Matthew Stafford's 55 pass attempts. RB Kyren Williams ranked second, catching six of 10 targets for 48 yards and a TD. WR Tutu Atwell ranked third with 9 targets. He snagged 7 catches for 77 yards. Nacua now stands as a must-start at least until Cooper Kupp returns. We'll see how the WR corps changes at that point.

The Rams will place WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That knocks Kupp out for at least the first four games of the season. Hopefully he's ready to go come Week 5 and the hamstring trouble doesn't resurface. Kupp is certainly worth stashing in all fantasy leagues. Van Jefferson figures to operate as Los Angeles' No. 1 WR with Kupp out. We'll see how the WR corps shakes out behind him. TE Tyler Higbee should also see a bunch of targets sans Kupp.

Rams Wire's Cameron DaSilva says "no one should sleep on [Demarcus] Robinson or [Tyler] Johnson as the Rams' No. 3 receiver." He adds that either has a chance to "leapfrog" Ben Skowronek, Tutu Atwell, and Puka Nacua in pursuit of that third spot, joining Cooper Kupp and Van Jefferson. We wouldn't recommend investing heavily into any of those competitors -- and we're not even especially interested in Jefferson. But we'll be watching to see who emerges as that No. 3 wideout.

Rams beat writer Cameron DaSilva writes that “in all likelihood,” the team will use a rotation at WR3. Van Jefferson holds the WR2 role behind Cooper Kupp. But we’ll see training camp sort the depth chart beyond that, with Tutu Atwell, Ben Skowrenek, and Puka Nacua as leading contenders. Atwell brings big-play appeal, making him a late-round option in best ball leagues. Nacua, though, has drawn the most buzz this offseason. The real takeaway is that Kupp remains a strong candidate to lead the NFL in targets.
