Rams News: Should Cooper Kupp be the top WR fantasy pick of 2022?

Los Angeles Rams News and Links for 5/20/22

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

If you had Los Angeles Rams Cooper Kupp on your fantasy team last season, you likely won your league, and it was probably your best pick of the draft. Kupp’s historic season leading all receivers in all three major categories put a stamp on the fantasy world as well. Kupp’s 145 catches, 1947 yards, and 16 touchdowns translated into a big boost every week for fantasy owners.

NBC sports edge got it right by projecting the Rams leader as the best fantasy receiver pick for next season. Of course they did. The Super Bowl MVP is coming back with quarterback Matthew Stafford returning for his second season with the team. Considering the season they had together in their first year as a duo, there is certainly reason to expect improvement as Stafford returns to a familiar system and playbook.

However, PFF Fantasy Football has it differently. They put Minnesota Vikings Justin Jefferson ahead of Kupp.

What do you think? Who got it right?
