Los Angeles Rams DFS Spin
Cooper Kupp (knee) is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round against the Packers. Dealing with inflammation in his knee, Kupp would be a stunning inactive in the Rams' matchup with Green Bay after catching 4-of-9 targets for 78 yards in LA's Wild Card win over the Seahawks. None of the Rams wideouts have much DFS appeal with an injured Jared Goff under center in the freezing Lambeau weather. If Kupp is out, Van Jefferson and Josh Reynolds would be in line for a bump in snaps and targets.
Green Bay Packers DFS Spin
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was voted first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press. This is the third All-Pro selection for Rodgers, who beat out Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen. It's also a strong sign Rodgers will be voted MVP later this month. Rams DT Aaron Donald and Chiefs TE Travis Kelce were the only unanimous picks. Titans RB Derrick Henry, Packers WR Davante Adams, and Bills WR Stefon Diggs all made the team as first-time selections.
