Josh Reynolds, WR, Los Angeles Rams
Lost in the madness that was the Week 11 Monday night game against the Kansas City Chiefs was Reynolds, who finished with six catches (on eight targets) for 80 yards and a touchdown with a near-miss on a second score. He’s moved into the starting role vacated by Cooper Kupp (torn ACL), and a Week 12 bye surely kept his ownership rates from taking off.
The Rams are practically matchup-proof across the board at this point, depending on your situation, but the Detroit Lions (Week 13) have allowed multiple touchdowns to wide receivers in five of their last seven games. Week 14 against the Chicago Bears looks daunting, but they entered Week 12 allowing the eighth-most fantasy points to wide receives. Then the Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers round out the schedule from Week 15-17.
Reynolds could fall down the pecking order at times down the stretch. But a starting role in one of the league’s best offense gives him weekly WR2 upside, and he has to be added in all leagues.
