Rams Wide Receiver Expected To See Largely Increased Role

He's had a disappointing season thus far.

However, now that the Los Angeles Rams No. 1 wide receiver Cooper Kupp is out for at least the next four weeks, Allen Robinson is expected to settle in as the new WR1 for the team, beginning with Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.
The Rams' offense flows through Kupp, as the receiver has accounted for 35.7 percent of his team's receptions this season, which leads the NFL. 

With Kupp going down, this could actually open up the Rams' offense a little bit, as the team will need to be a little more run-heavy and Robinson, Tyler Higbee, Van Jefferson and Ben Skowronek should all see their targets increased. Though Robinson won't absorb the same 10.8 targets per game that Kupp saw, he will still, no doubt, be Stafford's No. 1 target moving forward.

In nine games this season in his Rams debut, Robinson has 29 receptions for 292 yards and two touchdowns on 47 targets.
