Rams' Cooper Kupp: Competing for targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp is part of a deep receiving corps that also includes Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Josh Reynolds, Pharoh Cooper and Mike Thomas, ESPN.com's Lindsey Thiry reports.

Reynolds, Cooper and Thomas had a few nice moments, but there's no question Cooks and Woods will be the starters outside, with Kupp locked in as the slot man for an offense that had three or more wideouts on the field for a league-high 84 percent of its snaps last season. Cooks figures to see more passes than Sammy Watkins did, but there should still be plenty of opportunity for both Woods and Kupp, considering tight ends accounted for only 17 percent of the team's targets in 2017. While a breakout season from Tyler Higbee or Gerald Everett might change things, it appears coach Sean McVay and quarterback Jared Goff will focus on getting the ball to the trio of starting wide receivers and RB Todd Gurley.

Rams' Robert Woods: Expects more in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods said the Rams passing game has made big improvements from last year, ESPN.com's Lindsey Thiry reports.

The Rams went worst-to-first in scoring from 2016 to 2017, and Woods believes the offense can be even better after another full offseason working with Jared Goff. The 26-year-old unexpectedly emerged as Goff's top option last year, catching 47 of 70 targets for 703 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games before a shoulder injury limited his late-season impact. Woods bounced back with nine catches for 142 yards in a playoff loss to the Falcons, and he's subsequently been healthy throughout the offseason. Brandin Cooks figures to get more looks than Sammy Watkins did, but it won't come as a total surprise if Woods challenges for the team lead in targets. Cooper Kupp and Todd Gurley are also viable candidates for triple-digit targets, considering tight ends accounted for only 17 percent of the team total last year.

Rams' Matt Longacre: Limited in offseason workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Longacre (back) was a limited participant in offseason workouts, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Longacre was held out of team drills while he rehabs a back injury that required surgery last December. It isn't clear if the linebacker will be fully ready to go when training camp opens. If he isn't, it's possible sixth-round rookie Trevon Young will open training camp with the first-team defense.

Rams' Mark Barron: Limited participant in offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron (shoulder) was a limited participant in the Rams' offseason program, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Barron underwent shoulder surgery this offseason and wasn't allowed to do any team drills this spring. While it isn't clear if he'll be completely free from his restrictions when training camp arrives, Barron is nonetheless slated to play a huge role in the Rams defense this season. In fact, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said the linebacker could potentially be the team's defensive signal-caller.

Rams' Brandon Allen: Active during offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (back) was an active participant through OTAs and minicamp, Vincent Bonsignore of the Orange County Register reports.

Allen finished the 2017 campaign on injured reserve with an unspecified back injury he suffered in December. While he's now healthy, Allen remains the team's No. 3 quarterback behind Jared Goff and Sean Mannion.
