Similar to Woods, Kupp has generally lived in the 5-8 target range this year, though there have been two outlier games where he saw 20 and 10 targets. Both times were in matchups where the slot was an area to attack against their opponents (Bills, Dolphins) while the perimeter matchups were a bit tougher. The matchup against the Bucs would certainly qualify as a matchup to attack the slot over the perimeter, as Sean Murphy-Bunting has allowed 37-of-42 passing for 437 yards and four touchdowns in his coverage. There are just 13 cornerbacks in the league who've allowed more yardage, and all of them have seen more targets than him. There have only been six wide receivers who've finished better than the WR29 against the Bucs, and while all of them saw at least seven targets, five of them saw nine-plus targets, so we need this to be one of the games Kupp gets peppered. He's the preferred play on the Rams this week, so plug him in as a low-end WR2 and hope for the best.
