SCOTT PIANOWSKI: So Cooper Kupp just gave us one of the most unbelievable football seasons we've ever had, monstrous fantasy season, Super Bowl MVP. I think he should have been the regular season MVP, and to a lot of people, he was the fantasy MVP. But now we have to say the R-word, regression. He's not going to post last year's numbers. Everybody knows that, but regression to what?
He's still rolling with Matthew Stafford, still getting the Sean McVay schemes, all those easy layup targets as Matt Harmon would say. I'm content to take Cooper Kupp as early as second overall in a fantasy draft if Jonathan Taylor is already off the board. Certainly should be a top five pick in every league, and you don't need this from me, but I'll tell you anyway. He's atop my receiver board, wide receiver 1, entering the 2022 fantasy draft season.
