The Los Angeles Rams are taking on the Seattle Seahawks for the second time this season after defeating them 30-13 in Week 1. The three touchdowns scored in the season opener were all contributed by running backs, with Kyren Williams (twice) and Cam Akers finding the end zone.
This time around, the Rams won’t have Williams available, and Akers has unfortunately suffered a season-ending Achilles injury since being traded to the Minnesota Vikings. The one player who will be available in Week 11 versus the Seahawks after not playing in Week 1 is Cooper Kupp.
Over on FanDuel Sportsbook, you can get Kupp to score a touchdown at +120 odds. While Kupp has been quiet in recent games, we know he’s fully capable of putting together a stellar performance at any moment.
Cooper Kupp anytime TD scorer: +120
In Kupp’s last three games, he’s totaled eight catches for 98 yards on 24 targets. One of those games can be chalked up due to Matthew Stafford being sidelined and Brett Rypien starting under center for the Rams.
At the same time, Kupp accumulated 15 receptions for 266 yards and one touchdown on 21 targets in Weeks 5 and 6, which were his first two games back from a stint on injured reserve. Stafford is set to return on Sunday against the Seahawks, giving Kupp a better chance of scoring.
The new-look secondary of the Seahawks certainly poses a challenge for Kupp and the Rams’ passing attack. But the last time we saw Kupp face the Seahawks, the All-Pro wideout registered nine receptions for 136 yards and two touchdowns back in Week 15 of the 2021 season.
Given the lack of a running game, now is a perfect time to take advantage of Kupp being at plus odds to score a touchdown for the Rams.
