Fantasy Football Draft Outlook: Kyren Williams, Puka Nacua, Cooper Kupp (2024)

Welcome to the grand unveiling of the 2024 Fantasy Football Forecast, a critical juncture for fantasy football fans, marking the end of 2023 with our sights set on next season!

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams came up just short of a road victory in the Wild Card Round, falling to the Lions by 1 point.

Kyren Williams rushed 13 times for 61 yards against a top-tier run defense, while Ronnie Rivers added 3 carries. Rivers was also targeted thrice to Williams’ 1 target. However, needs to be noted that Williams did exit the fourth quarter with a hand injury.

Hence his 66% snap rate and his worst statistical game of his second season with just 6.6 fantasy points scored. But even at an updated 18.9 points per game, Williams was still by far the second-most productive running back in fantasy football in 2023. But the injuries that he has gone through the last two seasons at his size – under 195 pounds – are the biggest concern projecting him into 2024.

Puka Nacua is so clearly the alpha in the Rams passing game. 9 catches for 181 yards and 2 TDs on 10 targets (29%) with 100 yards coming after the catch in his final game of his rookie season, capped off a historic rookie campaign that saw him break the receptions and receiving yards records for a first-year player.

In his 18 games played, Nacua posted a 29% target share and 15.3 points per game (4th among all WRs). First in yards after the catch, 3rd in receiving EPA and 14th in weighted opportunity.

Cooper Kupp commanded a high target share (9, 26%) but left more lackluster production on the table. 5 catches for 27 yards in Week 19. Many will point to the injuries Kupp has dealt with throughout the season, as a reason to be concerned about him moving forward. He hasn’t looked like himself all season and he will be 31 in 2024. A lot of his production was salvaged by his 5 receiving TDs. Posted a career-low yards per route run (1.77). Kupp was WR27 in points per game in 2023 despite a 26% target share. He went over 100 yards four times, but was held under 55 yards in his 8 other games.

Nacua has taken over as the alpha in this passing game. Get out before things get worse for an aging Kupp. He’s missed an average of six games over the last two seasons.

The 2021 season seems like a distant memory.
