There are good first impressions, then there’s what Rams rookie wide receiver Puka Nacua has done his first two games.

In the opening week, he shocked the Seahawks with 10 catches for 119 yards. It came out of nowhere for the fifth-round pick — on an offense that struggled last season, on the road against a pass defense and with an offense that was without its top weapon to distract coverage.

That’s right, for his first impression, Puka is doing an impressive Cooper impression. But what happens when Kupp comes back from his hamstring injury?Well, there is reason for continued confidence in Nacua. First, apparently he is pretty good at being a wide receiver, so there’s that. Also, Kupp will command defensive attention, because he’s been a dominant force for years and Nacua for just weeks. That attention will make it even easier for Nacua to get open.

Consider: In the 2019-20 seasons, when Kupp was part of a dynamic WR duo with Robert Woods, Kupp averaged 15.5 fantasy points per game in PPR. In 26 games since, as the unchallenged top target, he averaged 24.7.Kupp was drafted in the top half of the first round this fantasy season based on his 24.7 potential. But he might return to the lineup with a roster that delivers closer to a 15.5 outlook.
