Dr. Roto’s Daily Prescription 8/2: Los Angeles Rams Receiving Options

Dr. Roto breaks down the best receiving options behind Cooper Kupp on the Los Angeles Rams.

Cooper Kupp left practice today with an undisclosed injury. HC Sean McVay had no update for the media.
Kupp’s injury history forces fantasy managers to consider other potential options in LA if he were to miss any time.
Here are the options:
Van Jefferson: Solid route runner who lacks breakaway speed
Demarcus Robinson: Signed with the Rams recently. Has good redzone size but consistency has been a real issue
Puka Nacua: Flashed in college and has the makings of a decent possession receiver.
Ben Skowronek: Inconsistent last season but did have a solid late-season game in 2022 vs. Las Vegas
Tutu Atwell: Has looked good in practices and has tons of speed but can he do enough weekly to be fantasy relevant?
In short, I have some interest in Jefferson in PPR formats and Robinson in standard leagues. Without Kupp this is just a collection of underwhelming receivers. Hopefully, we hear good things about Kupp soon and Rams fans can breathe once again.
