Date League Injury Details
Aug 22, 2017 NFL Inguinal Groin Pull Grade 1 Kupp missed the final 2 preseason games with a groin injury but was ready for Week 1.

Oct 30, 2022 NFL Pedal Ankle Sprain/Pull Unspecified Grade 1 "It just got rolled up a little bit," Kupp said. "Foot got caught, but I think it was able to slide out of there before there was too much damage done, and so, we'll see over these next few days how it responds."

View WR Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Kupp racked up 191 targets, 145 catches, 1,947 yards and 16 TDs last season.
  • All 4 marks were career highs. And all 4 marks led the league.
  • Kupp scored 93.2 more PPR points and 31.5 more non-PPR points than any other WR.
  • His 25.85 PPR points per game were the 5th most by a WR in NFL history.
  • In addition to leading all WRs with 191 targets, Kupp also led with 56 red-zone targets. His 13 end-zone targets ranked 7th.
  • Not surprisingly, Kupp led all WRs with 21.4 expected PPR points per game.
  • But he was also efficient, scoring 4.3 more PPR points per game than expected. That was 3rd best behind only Deebo Samuel (+6.1) and Ja’Marr Chase (+4.4).
  • Kupp’s 92.6 Pro Football Focus receiving grade was easily a career high and ranked 2nd among 89 WRs with 50+ targets.
  • Kupp led those 89 WRs with 3.12 yards per route run – .14 more than anyone else.
  • He’ll be back in HC Sean McVay’s offense in 2022.
  • QB Matt Stafford returns for his 2nd season with Kupp and the Rams.
    • Stafford got an injection in his right elbow after the Super Bowl to address an issue that bothered him during last season. He didn’t throw during the offseason program but is expected to be throwing by training camp.
  • WR Robert Woods was traded to the Titans in March. WR Odell Beckham remains unsigned as of mid-June after tearing his ACL in the Super Bowl.
    • Those 2 combined for 19.3% of the Rams’ targets, 17.7% of the catches, 17.6% of the receiving yards and 22.0% of the receiving TDs last year.
  • The Rams signed WR Allen Robinson to a 3-year, $46.5 million deal in free agency. He figures to be the #2 WR, with Van Jefferson returning as the #3.
  • Kupp will obviously have trouble matching last year’s stat line. But we’re not expecting major regression.
    • His 10.2 yards per target last season wasn’t even a career high. He averaged 10.3 yards per target back in 2018 (albeit in 8 games).
    • His 11.0% TD rate last year was high but not outlandishly so. He scored on 8.3% of his catches over his first 4 seasons.
  • Despite ranking 11th in offensive pace and 4th in situation-neutral pace, the Rams finished just 18th with 62.2 offensive snaps per game last year.
    • That was down from 68.0, 65.9 and 66.3 plays per game the previous 3 seasons.
    • The Rams are a good bet to run more plays – and, therefore, throw more passes – this year.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Kupp turned in a historic 2021 season, scoring the 5th most PPR points per game by a WR in NFL history.

He might be in an even better spot heading into 2022. HC Sean McVay and QB Matt Stafford return. But WRs Robert Woods and Odell Beckham are gone. The Rams added WR Allen Robinson in free agency, but Kupp should again be in for a boatload of targets.

It’d be absurd to expect Kupp to match last year’s production. But we’re also not projecting a significant step back. He’s 1 of the safest picks in fantasy football.

Schefter: Cooper Kupp expected to miss 6-8 weeks following ankle surgery

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Rams WR Cooper Kupp is expected to miss 6-8 weeks after surgery for his high-ankle sprain. He adds that the team will need to turn things around to "give Kupp any chance to return this year." At 3-6, the Rams will need to make an extreme rebound to have any shot at the playoffs, and they just lost the only offensive player having a good season. We'd bet that Kupp doesn't play another snap in 2022.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp will undergo ankle surgery on Wednesday, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He’ll be placed on IR and miss at least 4 games, but fantasy owners should plan on a lengthier absence. The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue notes that the tightrope procedure Kupp is undergoing usually knocks players out for 4-8 weeks. Kupp is droppable in shallow leagues if you need the roster spot. The Rams’ schedule ends with the Packers (Week 15), Broncos, Chargers and Seahawks.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. A source tells Schefter that it "doesn't sound good." No timetable is given, but high-ankle sprains are generally 4-6 week injuries. So, for now, Kupp owners should brace to be without him until at least Week 15 -- and possibly longer. Kupp leaves behind a massive 30% of Rams targets. Allen Robinson, Van Jefferson, Ben Skowronek and Tyler Higbee should all pick up extra volume, but this Rams passing game could be a disaster with Kupp sidelined.
