For the third week in a row, the number of wide receivers seeing double-digit targets dropped. But this was the most dramatic drop off of the lot. Fifteen WRs commanded at least 10 targets in Week 3. This week, that number fell to only eight.
Here’s the full list of target leaders.
Double-Digit Targets in Week 4
Cooper Kupp’s recovery from an ACL tear in mid-November of last year has been nothing short of astonishing. He has seen 10 or more targets in three of the Rams first four games this season. Through Week 4, only Keenan Allen has seen more targets than Kupp (46), while Allen is the only WR to score more fantasy points (Kupp has 89.3). Just incredible.
To say that he has taken his game up a notch would be something of an understatement.
Kupp’s teammate Robert Woods also enjoyed a boom week, thanks in no small part to the ridiculous number of passes attempted by Jared Goff. Woods’ production through the season’s opening three weeks was dwarfed by his Week 4 output.
Woods and the Rams take on the Seahawks on Thursday night. Woods has enjoyed playing the Seahawks in his career and will hope last week is a precursor to another big week.
The Chris Godwin hype train was one of the more popular modes of transport this offseason. And Godwin has done little to prove his fans incorrect through four weeks of the season. His Week 4 performance against the Rams was just another fine day at the office for Godwin.
The Buccaneers’ rest-of-season schedule is not an easy one for WRs. But Godwin still looks like a player you can trust on a weekly basis.
Jarvis Landry and the Cleveland Browns offense were off to a sluggish start to the season prior to their win over the Ravens. While the star of the show was clearly Nick Chubb, Landry’s best game of the season (by far) should not be ignored.
Landry will be looking to build on this form against the 49ers next week, while teammate Odell Beckham Jr. will attempt to bounce back from a career-low 20 receiving yards. I wouldn’t bet against it happening either based on the matchup.
