Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kupp wasn't exactly heavily targeted last week, but that's sort of been the theme of this entire season for him. He was extremely efficient though and still produced for fantasy managers that plugged him into their starting lineups in a tough matchup. In this game against the Dolphins, Kupp can be started as a low-end WR2 that will need to score to finish much higher than that.Gallup's off the redraft radar in this offense and can be dropped to your waiver wire.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.He's now totaled just 17 targets over his last four games, which is not enough to be a consistent fantasy producer, especially when you factor in the poor quarterback play. Building on that, he's finished with less than 30 yards in three of his last four games. He'll see Avonte Maddox in coverage most of the time, which is not a horrendous matchup by any standards. Over the last two years, he's allowed 59-of-90 passing for 764 yards and four touchdowns in his coverage, which is good for a QB Rating over 105.0. But again, this comes back to his quarterback play and getting consistent targets. It's tough to see the Cowboys having much success on the ground against the Eagles, so we should see increased pass attempts if their defense can get off the field. Gallup has moved well out of must-play territory and should be considered more of a risk/reward WR4/5.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Dolphins are 16th against fantasy wide receivers, but Kupp is probably just a WR3 on a very run oriented Rams offense.
