While there was supposedly a chance that Cooper Kupp would suit up for the Rams season opener, this was the expected outcome after reports surfaced that he had reaggravated his hamstring injury. Kupp could be looking at an extended absence as a result of this injury, as well, with Rams HC Sean McVay floating the idea that he could be put on IR to begin the season. Tyler Higbee’s target share is about to explode, while Van Jefferson and Puka Nacua should become viable options in Kupp’s absence. Keep an especially close eye on Nacua, who was a favorite sleeper here at Upper Hand among this year’s WR class.
