Cooper Kupp Week 8 Outlook - Rams at Dolphins

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 29th 2020, 8:49am EDT

Bear with Kupp through the last two weeks, as he's come up short in tough matchups. The good news is that he's averaging 7.3 targets and a 23 percent target share. The matchup with Dolphins is a good one for him, as they've really struggled to defend slot-heavy receivers. Adding up the slot cornerbacks they've put out there, they've combined to allow 26-of-37 passing for 275 yards and a touchdown. While Robert Woods deals with Xavien Howard most of the day, Kupp will battle with Nik Needham, who's allowed most of the slot production in his coverage. There have been four slot-heavy receivers who've finished as top-40 receivers against the Dolphins, which should make you feel comfortable with Kupp's floor. He should be in lineups as a low-end WR2 this week.
