It required at least 11.7 PPR points to finish as a WR3 or better in 2018. That's a number Woods hit in 87.5 percent of his games. The wide receivers who did it more? Davante Adams, DeAndre Hopkins, and Antonio Brown. That's it. He doesn't offer the upside of the top-tier guys, but as a steady, consistent WR2 in your lineup, Woods gets the job done

Woods ends a six-man third-tier of fantasy receivers before a huge drop-off to the fourth tier. It might not feel as sexy as some other picks in the fourth or fifth round, but there is something to be said for his safety week to week and year-long in this Rams' machine of an offense.

Woods and Cooks were 1A and 1B in the passing offense last year, but the return of WR Cooper Kupp should make Woods a boom / bust WR3 most weeks.

Woods finished last season as the WR 11 with an 86/1219/7 stat line. Woods was the most consistent WR on the Rams roster last season, posting double digit fantasy points in 14 of 16 weeks, while going over 60 receiving yards in that same number. While the consistency was nice, he showed a slightly lower ceiling than the other receivers near the top 10. Woods topped out at 109 receiving yards, and he topped 22 fantasy points just twice. Woods was extremely durable last season, playing in 98.6% of Goff's snaps. He appeared in every game, and was really an every down player in all of those games. That was his best season as a pro, not only from a production standpoint, but also when looking at his health. He's suffered 2 ankle sprains, a pulled back, a groin tear, a knee strain and a shoulder strain. Despite these injuries, he's still been able to appear in 89% of his possible games. Sports injury predictor gives him the highest percent chance to miss time due to an injury with 3 projected games missed. I think that projection is fine, but I wouldn't worry too much about him having the highest chance to miss time, It's really just because he's missed a game in 4/6 seasons…but he's never missed more than 3 weeks, and it's not a big deal if he misses a game or two. I don't think you should be concerned at all with his injuries. This will be Woods's 7th season as a pro, last year being his first with over 800 yards, although it's tough to blame anyone for not producing while on the Bills. In his first season with the Rams he was on pace for over 1,000 yards…but he missed 3 games with a shoulder injury, and then the starters were held out of week 17. I also want to mention his splits with and without Kupp. With Kupp out of the lineup last season Woods averaged the same number of targets, but for half a reception less, and for 19 less yards. He also averaged 2.3 less fantasy points per game. So, the return of Kupp actually helps him. Ultimately, Woods should be viewed as a safe pick. He's a consistent point scorer on an elite offense, and he's still just 27.
