The gap between Cooper Kupp and every other WR in slot receiving yards is massive

The Rams Wire

Cooper Kupp has erupted for the Rams this season, catching 100 passes for 1,366 yards and 11 touchdowns in his first 10 games. He’s already set career-highs in all three categories and leads the NFL in each one, too, and there are still five games remaining.

It’s no surprise that most of his damage has been done out of the slot, accounting for more than 72% of his receiving yards this season. According to Pro Football Focus, Kupp has 990 yards out of the slot, which is a whopping 395 more than the next-closest player in the NFL, Chris Godwin.

It’s reasonable to think he’ll double up every other receiver in slot yards by the time the season ends, which is incredible.

Kupp won’t have much of a chance to win NFL MVP, but he should absolutely be in the conversation for Offensive Player of the Year if he keeps up his current pace.

If he winds up leading the NFL in receptions, yards and touchdown catches, he’ll be the first player to win the triple crown since Steve Smith did it in 2005 with the Panthers.
