Reynolds' meager yardage total actually ranked second among all Rams players, illustrating the difficulty quarterback Jared Goff had with moving the chains against the stout Chicago defense. The second-year receiver has seen his role expand since Cooper Kupp (knee) suffered a season-ending ACL tear in Week 10, but Reynolds has yet to establish himself as a viable option in fantasy lineups outside of deeper formats. In the Rams' three games sans Kupp, Reynolds has nabbed only 11 of 20 targets for 135 yards and a touchdown.
Reynolds caught two of his five targets for only 19 yards during Sunday's 30-16 win over Detroit.
This was a discouraging showing for Reynolds following Los Angeles' bye in Week 12. He recorded 80 receiving yards and a score against Kansas City in his last outing, and now that he's in a starting role, he's positioned for success. Playing 67 of 69 offensive snaps against the Lions also bodes well for his fantasy outlook. While Reynolds' probably shouldn't be considered a reliable asset, the upside is definitely there.
Reynolds caught six of eight targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 54-51 win over the Chiefs.
Reynolds assumed Cooper Kupp's (knee) vacated starting position and fared quite well in an expanded role. Not only did he make a superb grab for a four-yard touchdown during the first quarter, but he finished behind only Brandin Cooks in catches and receiving yards. In doing so, last year's fourth-round pick set career highs, giving him great momentum heading into Los Angeles' bye week.
Reynolds is expected to start against Kansas City in Week 11 with Cooper Kupp (knee) out for the season, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Los Angeles leans heavily on three-receiver sets, so Reynolds is positioned to see a significant uptick in offensive snaps and targets. He recorded four receptions for 61 yards and two touchdowns in the two games Kupp missed earlier this season, and Reynolds also posted an 8-60-1 line over a three-week stretch in 2017 when Robert Woods was out with a shoulder injury. Being attached to a prolific offense is a huge plus for the second-year receiver out of Texas A&M, and he projects to be a popular waiver-wire add with a favorable Week 11 matchup against the Chiefs on tap.
Reynolds played just two of 60 offensive snaps and wasn't targeted during Sunday's 45-35 loss to New Orleans.
With Cooper Kupp back from a knee injury, Reynolds' field time was predictably limited in Week 9. The sophomore out of Texas A&M is clearly not a viable fantasy asset when the Rams are at full health, but Reynolds also proved last week against the Packers that he's capable of climbing the depth chart and contributing if given the opportunity.
