Fantasy Impact:

“We just feel he’s a capable starting receiver,” McVay told reporters. With Cooks now in Houston, a third WR slot has opened up, and it seems like Reynolds may be the guy that ends up filling that void. The Rams offense under McVay has been an aerial attack since his arrival, as evidenced from QB Jared Goff’s 626 pass attempts last season. This offense is more than capable of supporting three fantasy relevant WRs (Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, and Reynolds potentially) as well as TEs Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett. While he may be the fourth option in the passing game, he’s still likely to see a large share of snaps this upcoming season, and makes for an interesting sleeper pick in the late rounds of fantasy drafts. He’s currently 88 in the FantasyPros consensus rankings, but one expert has him ranked 55, good for a WR5.
