Reynolds caught two of his five targets for 45 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-16 loss to San Francisco.
The score was Reynolds' first of the season and came with just 3:24 left in the fourth quarter to bring the Rams within one score of the 49ers. The catch also was all the more impressive because the fourth-year receiver fought through pass interference from 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Moseley to haul in the 40-yard deep ball. Still, prospective fantasy managers will want to keep expectations in check. This was just the second touchdown reception over the past two years for Reynolds, and he's still firmly behind Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp on the wide receiver depth chart. Additionally, tight ends Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett are both active in the passing attack and combined for eight targets Sunday.
Reynolds caught two of four targets for 46 yards during Sunday's 30-10 win over Washington.
Despite being the clear No. 3 receiver for the Rams, Reynolds isn't making much of a fantasy impact. He played 49 of 68 offensive snaps Sunday, but there are just too many weapons in the Los Angeles offense for him to pad his stat line. As it stands, it'll likely take an injury to Cooper Kupp or Robert Woods for Reynolds to be a reliable factor in the passing attack. Tight end Gerald Everett is also beginning to be more involved in the offense, which is another knock on Reynolds' outlook for the immediate future.
Reynolds caught three of four targets for 25 yards during Sunday's 17-9 win over the Giants. He played 30 of 57 offensive snaps.
After splitting time with rookie Van Jefferson through the first two weeks of the season, Reynolds has played 92 offensive snaps to Jefferson's 11 the past two games. Reynolds is clearly the No. 3 wide receiver on the depth chart for the time being, and while it hasn't translated into significant fantasy production, the fourth-year wideout has a respectable seven receptions for 85 yards through the past two weeks. In deep settings, he's a player to keep an eye on and would obviously gain value if injuries struck the Los Angeles receiving corps.
Reynolds (illness) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Reynolds didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness, but it looks as though he's already returned to full health. The 25-year-old saw 90 percent of offensive snaps Week 3, and he now looks in line to handle his usual role on offense behind Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods during Sunday's game against the Giants.

Among players not named Cam Akers (ribs) on the Rams' Week 4 injury report, coach Sean McVay expects everyone to play Sunday versus the Giants. Reynolds has been afforded a significant workload -- including 90 percent of the plays on offense Week 3 in Buffalo -- en route to seven catches (on eight targets) for 110 yards through three games. Look for his status to be clarified by week's end.
Reynolds caught four of his five targets for 60 yards during Sunday's 35-32 loss to Buffalo.
This was Reynolds' best showing of the year, and he also played a season-high 62 offensive snaps. Rookie receiver Van Jefferson appeared on the verge of leapfrogging Reynolds on the depth chart, but Sunday's snap share favored the third-year wideout by a large margin as Jefferson only played eight offensive snaps. Still, Reynolds is a risky start in the majority of fantasy settings, and Jefferson is also probably the better long-term option for the Rams.
Reynold caught both his targets for 33 yards during Sunday's 37-19 win over Philadelphia.
The fourth-year receiver's two targets ranked sixth on the team and fourth among wideouts, so while Reynolds played a respectable 42 of 69 offensive snaps, he didn't have a significant impact. Additionally, with rookie Van Jefferson impressing again Sunday, Reynolds could quickly see himself relegated to fourth on the wide receiver depth chart and playing less. Barring an injury to another Los Angeles receiver, Reynolds' fantasy value probably is on the decline.
Reynolds had a 17-yard reception and played 37 of 73 offensive snaps during Sunday's 20-17 win over Dallas.
The Cowboys stopped Reynolds at the two-yard line on his only reception, so had he found the end zone, his fantasy day would have obviously been much better. As it was, running back Malcolm Brown scored on the next play. Reynolds also nearly split playing time with rookie receiver Van Jefferson, with the latter playing 33 offensive snaps. Making matters worse for Reynolds, Jefferson was targeted three times and hauled in an impressive 31-yard reception. The fourth-year wideout should continue to see regular snaps and targets, but he could also quickly lose opportunities to Jefferson, especially if the rookie continues to look as polished as he did Sunday.
Reynolds is projected to begin the 2020 season as the Rams' No. 3 wide receiver, Cameron Desilva of USA Today reports.
After trading Brandin Cooks to Houston this offseason, there was an open competition between Reynolds and rookie second-round pick Van Jefferson for the No. 3 job behind Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. Reynolds had modest success as a starter last season, recording nine receptions for 177 yards and a touchdown over the three games where he logged greater than an 80-percent snap share. However, Jefferson has impressed in training camp, and Jordan Rodrigue of The Athletic believes the rookie will overtake Reynolds sooner rather than later.
Reynolds will compete for playing time this season with 2020 second-round selection Van Jefferson (foot), Lindsey Thiry of ESPN reports.
Interestingly, after receiving a vote of confidence from head coach Sean McVay in early April, the organization selected Jefferson in the second round Friday. Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp are locked in as the top two receivers on the depth chart, and there's no guarantee Reynolds maintains his position as the No. 3 receiver throughout the season. The 2017 third-round pick has received chances to prove himself over the first three years of his career but has failed to fully capitalize on his opportunities. It will be important to monitor Jefferson's health entering the season after he underwent foot surgery in February. If the rookie is healthy, Reynolds' fantasy value will probably take a hit.
Coach Sean McVay said Reynolds is a starting-caliber receiver, Joe Curley of the Ventura County Star reports.
McVay also mentioned that the recent trade sending Brandin Cooks to Houston could be interpreted as a "big vote of confidence" in Reynolds, who has started 11 of 48 games in three pro seasons. He's averaging 3.3 catches for 46 yards and 0.55 TDs on 5.8 targets as a starter, logging more than 80 percent of offensive snaps in 10 of the 11 games. It's possible the No. 3 WR role comes with less playing time in 2020, as the decision to trade Cooks could also lead to increased use of multi-TE formations, a strategy that McVay mostly shied away from the past few seasons. In any case, Reynolds has a nice opportunity ahead of him as he prepares for the fourth and final season of his rookie contract.
Reynolds is a candidate for more work in 2020 following last week's trade of Brandin Cooks from the Rams to the Texans, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
The Rams still boast a formidable wide receiver duo of Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods atop the depth chart, but their consistent use of 11 personnel (i.e. three-wideout sets) under Sean McVay implies a bigger role for Reynolds may be on the horizon. Even after pacing the NFL by trotting out the formation 89 percent of the time in 2018, L.A.'s offense ranked 30th last season at 73 percent. Additionally, the combined loss of Cooks and Todd Gurley opens up 121 targets from what was the fourth-ranked passing attack in 2019. Reynolds isn't close to the deep threat that is Cooks, but the former has been productive when on the field the past two campaigns, averaging 7.6 yards per target and scoring six touchdowns on 96 targets.
Reynolds failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 31-24 win over Arizona.
The third-year receiver had another underwhelming season with just 21 receptions for 326 yards and a single touchdown. Reynolds spent the majority of the year as the No. 4 wideout for the Rams, and while he averaged 42 offensive snaps per contest over the final nine games of the campaign, his only meaningful fantasy showing came in Week 8 when he caught three of eight targets for 73 yards and his lone score. With Los Angeles returning all four of its top receivers in 2020, Reynolds is unlikely to show significant statistical improvement without a roster shakeup or an injury to one of the pass catchers ahead of him on the depth chart.
Reynolds caught two of three targets for 32 yards during Saturday's 34-31 loss to San Francisco.
Reynolds played 29 of 70 offensive snaps, which was the fewest of Los Angeles' top four receivers for the second consecutive week. He did show off in space again Saturday by rattling off 23 yards after the catch on his 24-yard reception in the first quarter -- his eighth of over 20 yards this season. The third-year wideout could receive more playing time next week against the Cardinals with nothing on the line for the Rams.
Reynolds caught two of his four targets for 36 yards during Sunday's 44-21 loss to Dallas. He played 26 of 73 offensive snaps.
After receiving the second most playing time among Los Angeles receivers last week, Reynolds ranked fourth among Rams wideouts Sunday. He continues to show well when given opportunities, but his role is both small and inconsistent, so he's an unreliable fantasy asset in most formats. It's definitely worth noting that he showed off in open space again, taking a short pass for 28 yards.
Reynolds rushed three times for 29 yards during Sunday's 28-12 win over Seattle.
Interestingly, Reynolds didn't receive a target despite being on the field for the second most offensive snaps among all Los Angeles receivers. So, while it was encouraging to see him run well in open space, he's still not making a big enough fantasy impact to be relied on in most settings. However, the increased snap count is notable and worth keeping tabs on because Reynolds could gain value before the end of the season.
Reynolds caught four of his five targets for 39 yards during Sunday's 34-7 win over Arizona. He played just 29 of 79 offensive snaps.
Reynolds was once again fourth in the pecking order for playing time among Rams wideouts, but he was busy when on the field. The third-year receiver will struggle to produce reliable fantasy numbers because of the depth of the Los Angeles receiving corps, but once again he proved capable of taking advantage of the opportunities provided to him.
Reynolds played just 30 of 54 offensive snaps and caught both of his targets for eight yards during Monday's 45-6 loss to Baltimore.
With Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Robert Woods (personal) back in action, Reynolds was relegated to No. 4 on the wide receiver depth chart, and his playing time also dropped. The third-year wideout posted admirable numbers -- especially considering the team's recent offensive struggles -- over the previous three games with nine receptions for 177 yards and a touchdown. The mini-surge reaffirms Reynolds' ability to move the needle when given an opportunity, but that window may be closed with the Rams receiving corps back at full strength.
Reynolds (illness) doesn't have an injury designation for Monday's game against the Ravens, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.
The 24-year-old started the week not practicing due to the illness, but he was able to progress to full participation Saturday to avoid the questionable tag. Reynolds is coming off decent production in Week 11 with three catches for 55 yards, but he should return to a lesser role versus Baltimore with Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Robert Woods (personal) both also clear of injury designations.
Reynolds (illness) practiced on a limited basis Friday, 105.7 The Fan reports.
After not practicing Thursday, the limited designation is a step in the right direction for Reynolds. With an extra day of preparation ahead of a Monday night showdown against Baltimore, Reynolds should be able to answer the bell but will be hoping to get more reps in before gameday.
