Robert Woods Week 8 Outlook - Rams at Dolphins

He went back to his 5-7 target role in Week 7, which is becoming somewhat routine now that Goff is attempting just 31.9 passes per game. Fortunately, they're adding in a few carries every game, giving him a bit more opportunities to put up fantasy points. Here are his fantasy finishes in half-PPR formats this year: 18, 37, 9, 51, 21, 24, 71. He's given a pretty stable floor, but the upside has been non-existent. Knowing teams have averaged just 34.8 pass attempts against the Dolphins this year, it may be a problem. It's not bad that 21.2 of those attempts are directed at wide receivers (60.9 percent), but the 1.67 PPR points per target they've allowed to receivers ranks as the ninth-lowest mark in the league. The only receiver who finished with top-12 numbers against them was Stefon Diggs, who saw 13 targets and turned them into 8/153/1. Him and Jamison Crowder have been the only receivers to pile up more than five receptions against the Dolphins. Woods is starting to look more and more like a high-end WR3 than the WR2 we hoped he'd be.
