Fantasy Slant: Robert Woods to the Los Angeles Rams

After hearing that they were going to lose No. 1 receiver Kenny Britt to the Cleveland Browns in free agency, the Los Angeles Rams acted quickly on Thursday. 

They added Southern California native and former USC star Robert Woods on a five-year, $39 million contract, making him Jared Goff's new No. 1 receiver. 

Woods, 24, put up 51 receptions for 613 yards and a touchdown for the Buffalo Bills last season. He also caught 67 percent fo the passes thrown in his direction. 

Expected to take on a larger role in Sean McVays offense with the Rams, Woods is actually now an under-the-radar fantasy option heading into 2017.

Surely, that will depend on what the Rams do from here on out and whether Goff actually turns into a viable starting quarterback. But Woods has proven himself more than capable in a secondary role behind Sammy Watkins in Buffalo.

Give him more targets than the career high of 104 we saw in 2014, and Woods should be a decent bench option in standard 12-team leagues.
