Woods caught seven of 10 targets for 109 yards during Sunday's 23-20 victory over the Broncos. He also rushed once for 12 yards. Woods, who topped the century mark for the third time in four contests, is now averaging over 87 receiving yards per game this season despite splitting targets with the likes of Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp. However, the fact he shares an offense with two other quality receivers -- along with stud running back Todd Gurley, who leads the league with 11 touchdowns in 2018 -- naturally limits the amount of attention Woods sees near the painted area. Woods is more of a possession receiver anyway, but the fact he's gone without a red-zone target in four of six games this season is nonetheless a concern for his fantasy outlook. Next up for the USC product is a Week 7 matchup against a 49ers defense allowing 11.7 yards per reception this year.
Woods caught five of seven targets for 92 yards and had two rushes for 53 yards in Sunday's 33-31 win at Seattle. After failing to do much in the Rams' season debut, Woods has caught 26 of 32 targets for 378 yards and three touchdowns in four games since, acting as one of the main cogs in the Rams' explosive offense. He nearly scored on a 56-yard rush in the second half, but was tracked down from behind in the red zone. Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks left Sunday's game with concussions, so Woods will be in line for extra looks In Week 6 if either or both misses the Rams' matchup with the Broncos.
Woods brought in all five of his targets for 101 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' 38-31 win over the Vikings on Thursday night. Four days after seeing 11 targets in a win over the Chargers, Woods lagged behind Cooper Kupp, Brandin Cooks and Todd Gurley in looks Thursday. It hardly mattered, considering he corralled each pass thrown his way and got into the end zone for the third time this season. The 26-year-old had seen at least nine targets in each of his first three games before Thursday's downturn, so even that's likely just an outlier that fantasy owners need not fret over. Already having logged 24 receptions through four contests, Woods will look to stay hot against the Seahawks in Week 5.
Woods had a season-high 10 catches (on 11 targets) for 104 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 35-23 win over the Chargers. Woods had a great first half, catching all seven of his targets for 79 yards and a touchdown, while also rushing three times for 13 yards. He added another touchdown in the third quarter. After seeing nine targets in each of the first two games, Woods was featured even more Sunday, leading the Rams in all receiving categories. The sixth-year wideout hadn't scored in either of the first two games, but given his overall usage and the potency of the Rams offense, it's not surprising that he blew up Sunday. He'll have a quick turnaround Week 4, as he'll face the Vikings on Thursday.
Woods caught six of nine targets for 81 yards in Sunday's 34-0 win over the Cardinals. Woods leads the Rams with 18 targets through two weeks, slightly ahead of Brandin Cooks (17) and Cooper Kupp (15), with Todd Gurley (eight) a distant fourth. Given the lack of pass-game involvement from the team's tight ends, Jared Goff should be able to keep all four of the aforementioned players heavily involved without too much trouble. Woods does get a tough matchup in a Week 3 home game against the Chargers, and his possession role arguably leaves him with a lower weekly ceiling than Cooks or Kupp.
