Cooper Kupp finished as a Top 10 WR in five of seven games and No. 19 in the other two. He is averaging 12 targets per game and converts 76% of those into catches. The 29-year-old star wideout suffered an ankle injury in the final minute of the Rams’ blowout loss to the 49ers in Week 8. Fantasy managers who roster him should start him if he suits up, so the only question that remains is: Will Cooper Kupp play in Week 9? Here’s the latest.

Cooper Kupp (ankle) will be active for Sunday’s game vs the Buccaneers.
This is great news after Kupp injured his ankle late in Week 8’s game against the 49ers. While he has been limited in practice throughout the week, expect Kupp to produce as usual.

What the Experts are Saying
Kupp didn’t practice on Wednesday (ankle) before he logged a limited practice on Thursday and was a full-go on Friday. Unless we get the word, Kupp will be limited; you play him. This doesn’t have to be rocket science. Kupp is the WR2 in fantasy sitting near the top of the wide receiver leaderboard in nearly every category. I could rattle off a bunch of Kupp stats here, but the reality is you are never sitting Kupp as long as he has two functioning legs and is deemed a full-go.
