Reynolds caught four of seven targets for 55 yards and two third-quarter touchdowns during Sunday's 48-32 win over San Francisco.
The two scores came on Los Angeles' first two drives of the third quarter, and while the Rams were in the driver's seat throughout Sunday's game, they pulled away to a 45-17 lead after Reynolds' second touchdown. It's been a promising late-season run for the sophomore. He's stepped up with Cooper Kupp (knee) out of action, and Reynolds has accumulated 22 receptions for 304 yards and three touchdowns over the past six games while also receiving nine red-zone looks. The Texas A&M product could also prove to be a sneaky fantasy option in postseason settings. It's definitely worth noting that Los Angeles has Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Kupp and Reynolds all signed long term, so Reynolds' value in keeper/dynasty settings is capped as long as the Rams' receiving corps is healthy.
Reynolds served in his usual role as a complementary option alongside Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks, shaking loose downfield for gains of 18 and 26 yards. The 23-year-old has been solid in place of Cooper Kupp (knee), as he's totaled 18 catches over the last five games. He'll look to head into the postseason with some momentum against the 49ers in Week 17, a game the Rams will need to win to secure the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye.
Reynolds caught five passes (12 targets) for 70 yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to Philadelphia.
Reynolds surprisingly led the Rams in targets, hitting double-digits in the category for the first time this season. The 23-year-old failed to corral 50 percent of his targets for the third consecutive week, hence the solid, but unspectacular, stat line given the amount of balls thrown his way. Reynolds could see elevated targets next week with Patrick Peterson likely staying on a combination of Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks on Sunday, but he still shouldn't be considered anything more than a deep-league option for Week 16.
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.
