2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFT SLEEPER: COOPER KUPP WR LOS ANGELES RAMS

The next Wes Welker.  Those in PPR fantasy football formats are always trying to answer that question in terms of finding the next slot dynamo who will pile up the catches in a hurry and serve as a terrific PPR boost to their wide receiver corps.  Each summer brings forth some new names that gain traction in drafts under that guise and 2017 is no different as Los Angeles Rams rookie Cooper Kupp has stepped to the forefront of that discussion.  Who is Kupp you might say?  Well if you didn't know who Kupp was going into training camp then you are not alone as he was the Rams' third round pick out of the college football hotbed that is Eastern Washington.  However the scouting report on Kupp coming out of college is that he ran crisp routes and had a knack for getting open which was what made Welker so great.  Well all it has taken is two preseason games for Kupp to show those skills as he has caught 8 balls for 105 yards in those contests for the Rams and it certainly does appear as though he is quickly becoming the go-to- receiver for second-year QB Jared Goff.  This would make sense as Goff still is trying to find his way as an NFL passer and check down throws to the slot become the norm for many young QB's.  Thus Kupp should be added in all PPR formats at the very least where available as this has some fantasy football legs to it.  Legs that are running terrific routes and getting open often which would make Welker proud.
