Much like Sean McVay and Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp seems to now have the parts around him to achieve a career season with the Los Angeles Rams.
Kupp had three touchdowns in 2020. Before that, he reached 10 scores in 2019 which represented his best TD tally since entering the league in 2017. This year, the former third round draft pick will have the benefit of an upgrade at the passer position, additions to the receiver room to stretch the real estate, and a top tier defense.
Although, It could make it harder for any of the LA receivers to reach a record number end zone visits because of how dynamic and talented the group is. Robert Woods, DeSean Jackson, Van Jefferson, Tyler Higbee, and Cam Akers, are the targets that will also be making a case for the ball to go their way. That’s good news for Rams fans and team goals, bad news for individual stats and opposing defenses.
Last season four NFL receivers had more than 11 touchdowns and three had exactly 11. Buccaneers pass catcher Mike Evans had 13 which helped his team reach the Super Bowl. On the other hand, Kupp had his 10-score campaign during the only McVay season the Rams missed the playoffs. So how critical is it to hit that mark? Hard to say, but with 11 days remaining to the start of Training Camp and the return of football action, we talk about it.
How many touchdowns will Kupp have next season?
