ALUMNUS OF THE WEEK - WEEK 4

Cooper Kupp, WR | Los Angeles Rams
2017 Reese's Senior Bowl

Kupp had nine receptions for 162 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams 38-31 victory over Minnesota. The second-year receiver out of Eastern Washington now has 24 catches for 348 yards with four touchdowns this season and has emerged as one of Jared Goff's favorite targets.

Coming off a solid rookie campaign when he finished with 62 catches for 869 yards with five touchdowns, Kupp appears to be well on his way to smashing those numbers in his sophomore season -- as the former third-round pick is on pace for 96 receptions, 1,392 yards and 12 touchdowns.
