With Cooper Kupp going down to injury and – apparently – having trouble making his comeback, fantasy managers will likely be without the best fantasy WR when healthy heading into 2023. Whether you’ve already drafted and now have a Cooper Kupp-sized hole on your roster, or if you were planning to draft him and now have to move him out of your first round targets, the effects of uncertainty with his tender hammy will be felt for weeks to come.
Outside of the last game that he played and was injured in – he scored 2.9 points – the last time Cooper Kupp scored less than 11 PPR points in a game was all the way back in Week 15 of the 2020 regular season. Since then, Kupp has started and finished 31 straight games without dropping below double-digit scoring… that’s almost two whole seasons!
There’s no timetable right now as to how long Kupp could be out – or whether he’ll be out at all – but once he returns, there’s no reason to expect anything less from the 2021 scoring leader than the consistent excellent production we’ve seen from him. On an offense that has just about nobody else at receiver, Kupp can still be a valuable pick in drafts as his ADP will likely slide.
