Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 1 PPR Rankings

Robert Woods Note

There are a lot of questions about the running back and tight end positions, and even some with Cooper Kupp, but there's no question about Woods' involvement in the Rams offense. He's now played 43 games under Sean McVay and has seen at least seven targets in 33 of them. He saw a ridiculous 79 targets over the final seven games in 2019, too. The Cowboys lost their best cornerback Byron Jones this offseason and have a new defensive coordinator, so it's not wise to look at Woods' lack of a stat line last year against the Cowboys as proof he'll struggle. He caught just 4-of-9 targets for 17 scoreless yards in their meeting last year. The new coordinator for the Cowboys is Mike Nolan, and the last three years he was a defensive coordinator, his units finished 32nd, 27th, and 24th in total yards allowed. Start Woods as a WR2 this week who should fare much better this time around.

Cooper Kupp Note

Kupp's numbers fell off towards the end of the season last year, but he's still one of the best wideouts the NFL has to offer. This game could easily get turned into a shootout and Kupp has a very good chance to score. He's a WR2 with upside this week.

DeSean Jackson Note

Jackson, Greg Ward, and JJ Arcega-Whiteside are reportedly going to be the starting wideouts in Philadelphia this week. While Zach Ertz will still be heavily targeted, Jackson's the solid bet to lead this team in targets. With the matchup against Washington's CBs, Jackson's a SMASH auto start this week in your FLEX. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see Jackson finish as a top-20 WR this week.

Tyler Higbee Note

Higbee and the Rams should be trailing in this potential shootout on SNF, which means more opportunity for the TE to continue his streak of dominant performances. While Gerald Everett's presence can certainly limit Higbee's overall upside, he's still worthy of starting in this matchup.

Cam Akers Note

Akers is an intriguing play this week with Darrell Henderson potentially limited with an injury. If Henderson is reportedly fully healthy, Akers moves from a back-end RB2 in my rankings to a FLEX option. However, in what should be a high-scoring matchup, Akers deserves to be in consideration for your starting lineup in some form or fashion.

Jefferson seems to be the locked in WR3 for this Rams team, but that doesn't mean we can rely him on for fantasy football just yet.
