Largely an afterthought during his four seasons in Buffalo, Woods flourished in his first year with the Rams, establishing new career bests in receiving yardage and yardage per catch, despite missing three games with a shoulder injury and being held out of the season finale along with most of the Rams’ other starters. Woods seemed to thrive in Rams head coach Sean McVay’s system. He’s only 26, so there could be even bigger numbers on the horizon.
Woods seemed to be the Rams’ alpha receiver last season, but that may not be the case in 2018, now that Brandin Cooks is in town. Woods, Cooks and Cooper Kupp are going to be fighting for targets this season, and it’s going to be hard to rely on any single Rams receiver for consistent weekly production.
It was nice to see Woods establish himself as a fantasy-relevant receiver in 2017, but the arrival of Brandin Cooks casts a shadow over Woods’ 2018 outlook.
