| Free agency acquisition Robert Woods is coming from a Buffalo team that finished in the bottom three teams in pass attempts three out of his four NFL seasons. The one other season saw Woods catch a career high in all three of the main fantasy categories for receivers - receptions (65), yards (699) and touchdowns (five).
Woods now moves to a team coached by Sean McVay whose Redskins threw the ball on 62 percent of their plays in 2016. The increased overall volume - in addition to Woods probably being the most polished receiver on the Rams roster - would seem to bode well for his chances to catch around 60 passes this season. There's a great chance that he leads the team in targets and while those targets might not be of great quality due to subpar play at the QB position, he'd only need to catch around half of them to be a viable WR4 fantasy option this season in PPR formats.
|Rams unlikely to play top WRs much in finale|
Woods, Watkins and Kupp all expected to be limited

FFToday's Take: The Rams aren't planning on playing Todd Gurley or Jared Goff at all, meaning owners still playing in Week 17 need to get familiar with players such as Sean Mannion, Malcolm Brown, Tavon Austin, Josh Reynolds and Pharoh Cooper. It's hard to buy into any of them - outside of maybe Reynolds - as a realistic option in fantasy this weekend.
| Robert Woods "on track" to play Week 15|
Rams WR getting over shoulder injury

FFToday's Take: Barwin and Woods are "on track, unless there are any setbacks, to be able to play and be available for the Seattle game," according to McVay. If active, Woods immediately slots in as a WR2/3 with upside.
