Woods is eager to ink a long-term extension and remain with the Rams, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN reports.
The 28-year-old receiver is coming off his second consecutive 1,000-yard campaign and projects to remain a go-to target for quarterback Jared Goff. With Brandin Cooks shipped off to Houston, Woods' role in the passing attack could even expand, and there should also be positive regression ahead of last season's two touchdowns -- Woods had 11 through 28 games over his first two seasons with the Rams. Still, Los Angeles has plenty of weapons, and Woods profiles as more of a possession receiver than big-play threat. As a result, it's probably best to target him as a high-floor asset. Additionally, barring injury, he should prove to be one of the safest mid-round receivers available.
Woods caught seven of his 12 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown and added a nine-yard rush during Sunday's 31-24 win over Arizona.
The solid Week 17 showing positioned Woods above 1,000 receiving yards for the second consecutive season, and he also finished with a career-high 90 receptions. However, the seven-year veteran only found the end zone twice all season, and those touchdowns didn't come until Weeks 14 and 17. Los Angeles has all four of its top receivers under contract for the 2020 campaign, so Woods should once again be heavily involved in the Rams' passing attack, and he's probably a candidate for statistical correction in the touchdown column.
Woods secured eight of 11 targets for 117 yards and rushed twice for six yards in the Rams' 34-31 loss to the 49ers on Saturday.
Woods turned in a valiant effort in the loss that officially eliminated the Rams from playoff contention, pacing the team in receiving yardage and co-leading it in targets. The veteran secured his second straight 1,000-yard season with his performance, which also marked his third 100-yard game of the campaign. Woods has seen no fewer than nine targets in any of the last six contests, and he'll look to finish off the season on a positive note against the Cardinals' vulnerable secondary in Week 17.
Woods caught four of nine targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 44-21 loss to the Cowboys.
Jared Goff had accuracy issues for most of the game, and Woods arguably suffered the most from his QB's scattershot efforts. On the bright side, the veteran receiver has seen at least nine targets in each of his last five games, but Sunday's output was a far cry from the eight grabs and 115 yards he averaged over the prior four contests. Woods will look to bounce back next Saturday in a road clash with the 49ers.
Woods had seven catches (nine targets) for 98 yards and touchdown in Sunday's 28-12 win over Seattle. He added 29 rushing yards on two carries.
Woods has racked up 71 receptions and 933 receiving yards through 12 games this season, so it may come as a surprise that Sunday's score was the receiver's first touchdown of the 2019 campaign. Jared Goff simply prefers Cooper Kupp (seven touchdowns) as a target in the red zone when Todd Gurley (10 touchdowns) is not taking it in. A few more touchdowns would certainly boost Woods' fantasy value, but the veteran remains a strong PPR option for his work between the 20s heading into a tough matchup against Dallas on Sunday.
Woods hauled in 13 of his 19 targets for 172 yards in the team's Week 13 win over the Cardinals.
Woods had a career day, posting his highest target, reception and yardage total in a single game. The only thing missing from his performance was a trip to the end zone, though he still turned in two massive receptions of 49 and 25 yards. Though he had inconsistent involvement in the offense early in the season, Woods now has at least nine targets in each of his past three games. He'll look to remain involved as the team takes on Seattle in Week 14.
Woods caught six of nine targets for 97 yards in Monday night's 45-6 loss to the Ravens.
Woods returned to the lineup after missing Week 11 for personal reasons, and he went on to lead the Rams in receiving. In fact, he registered at least 60 more yards than any of his teammates, even though Cooper Kupp's 10 targets topped his tally. Thanks to a season-long reception of 38 yards Monday, Woods has now gone for at least 80 yards in three of his last four outings, putting him in fine form ahead of this Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals. That being said, he's still yet to catch a touchdown this season, hurting his overall upside.
Woods (personal) is active for Monday's contest against the Ravens, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
After spending some time away from the Rams to tend to a family matter, Woods was present at every practice prior to this game, but coach Sean McVay wouldn't commit to the wide receiver returning to action. Having said that, Woods was seen warming up on the field Monday and even ran some routes, according to Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times. Proving his readiness to take the field, Woods will suit up for the first time since Nov. 10.
Woods (personal) doesn't have an injury designation for Monday's game against the Ravens, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.
Coach Sean McVay didn't fully confirm Woods' availability for Week 12 earlier Saturday, per Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com, but the fact he isn't listed on the final injury report in any capacity indicates the wideout should play. The 27-year-old was a late scratch for last Sunday's win over the Bears due to a family issue, but he was never listed on this week's injury report. Brandin Cooks (concussion) is also set to return, bringing the Rams' receiving corps back to full strength.
Woods (personal) "looks good" at practice, but head coach Sean McVay did not fully confirm whether the wide receiver would be available for Monday's game, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Woods was not listed on the team's injury report Thursday or Friday, but considering McVay wouldn't outright confirm whether his veteran wide receiver would be available after surprisingly being ruled inactive last week, it's fair to question what his status might be for the prime-time contest. More information should arrive following the team's final injury report Saturday, but fantasy owners may want to roster a potential backup option from Monday's 8:15 p.m. ET game in the unlikely event Woods ultimately hits the bench for a second consecutive week.
Woods (personal) wasn't listed on the Rams' injury report Thursday, Stu Jackson of the team's official site reports.
Woods was unavailable for the Rams' Week 11 matchup with the Bears as he dealt with a family matter. Returning to the team Thursday, his number of practice reps was normal, but coach Sean McVay wouldn't commit to Woods being available Monday versus the Ravens. "We'll see," McVay told Cameron DaSilva of USA Today. Thus, Woods' status may be up in the air, which doesn't help fantasy managers with the Rams taking the field after every other Week 12 participant but Baltimore.
Coach Sean McVay said Woods (personal) has rejoined the team and will participate Thursday in the Rams' first practice of Week 12, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Though Woods is back in the fold, McVay merely said, "we'll see," when asked if the wideout would be available for Monday's game against the Ravens. Woods stepped away from the team shortly before the Week 11 win over the Bears to tend to the family matter, so the Rams may want to see him put in at least a couple full practices during the current week before deciding on his status for gameday. If both Woods and Brandin Cooks (concussion) are deemed available versus Baltimore, the Rams would have their full receiving corps intact for the first time since Week 8.
Coach Sean McVay said Wednesday that Woods (personal) has yet to rejoin the Rams, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Woods left the team shortly before its Week 11 game against the Bears to tend to a family matter and doesn't have a timetable for reporting back to work. Based on McVay's comments, it's not expected that Woods will be in attendance for the team's first official practice of the week Thursday, but that wouldn't necessarily end his chances to play Monday against the Ravens. In other news relating to the Rams' receiving group, Branding Cooks (concussion) is on track to pass through the NFL's five-step protocol for head injuries ahead of the Week 12 contest, per Thiry.
Coach Sean McVay didn't put a timeline on when Woods (personal) might return to the team, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Speaking to the media Monday, McVay said Woods continues to tend to a personal matter, hence the reason he missed Sunday's 17-7 win over the Bears. Until Brandin Cooks gets out of the concussion protocol, the Rams' top two options at wide receiver are Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds.
Woods is inactive for the Rams' Sunday night matchup with the Bears due to a personal issue, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
It's still not exactly clear why Woods will not play Sunday night, but his absence is not injury-related. Woods' status will be updated again when more information is released.
Woods (unknown) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Bears, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
It's not immediately known why Woods is sitting out this game, as he didn't appear on the injury report at any point during the week. Woods is coming off one of his best performances of the season, as he hauled in seven of 11 targets for 95 scoreless yards in Week 10. With Brandin Cooks (concussion) also inactive, Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds will lead the receiving corps, while JoJo Natson, Mike Thomas and perhaps even Nsimba Webster rotate in.
Woods caught seven of 11 targets for 95 yards in Sunday's 17-12 loss to the Steelers.
With Brandin Cooks (concussion) out and Cooper Kupp effectively neutralized by the Pittsburgh secondary, Woods was Jared Goff's most reliable remaining option, and he led the Rams in receiving yards. It's only the third time this season he's seen double-digit targets, and after catching 11 TD passes over the prior two campaigns Woods has yet to haul one in this year, although he does have a rushing touchdown. He'll have a hard time snapping that drought in Week 11 against a stingy and desperate Bears secondary.
Woods caught both his targets for 31 yards and rushed four times for six yards during Sunday's 24-10 win over Cincinnati.
Woods was overshadowed by Cooper Kupp's seven-catch, 220-yard showing, and it was also No. 4 receiver Josh Reynolds who benefited most from Brandin Cooks exiting with a concussion. Reynolds turned his eight targets into three receptions, 73 yards and a touchdown. Woods has struggled to make a fantasy impact this year, as he's been held below 80 receiving yards in six of eight games and is still looking for his first touchdown.
Woods caught five of seven targets for 80 receiving yards and added a six-yard rush during Sunday's 37-10 win against the Falcons.
Last week against San Francisco's No. 1 pass defense, Woods was held without a catch for the first time since the start of the 2018 season. In Week 7, however, he faced a Falcons defense that entered the weekend conceding greater than 270 yards per game through the air, and he cashed in with his second-highest receiving output of the year. Woods has a strong chance to continue providing value in Week 8, taking on a Bengals defense that gave up 27 points and more than 470 yards of total offense to Jacksonville on Sunday.
Woods failed to catch any of his four targets and had two carries for 16 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-7 loss to the 49ers.
Woods' afternoon started brightly enough, as the wideout received a pair of carries on the opening drive, including an eight-yard touchdown scamper to cap it off. He made no further statistical contributions, however, as an anemic showing by the passing attack saw him finish without a catch for the first time in nearly four calendar years. It's been a tough start to the season for Woods, who's exceeded 50 receiving yards just twice in six games and is still in search of his first receiving touchdown. Next Sunday's road matchup against the Falcons could present him with opportunities to get back on track.
