With Allen Robinson joining the Rams, they felt the need to move Robert Woods to the Titans- creating another impact on this fantasy landscape. Seems like every day at the moment there is a move that is completely making people revalue fantasy rosters.
The impact for the Rams is minimal, considering the depth that they have at the receiver position. The real impact is going to be felt for the Titans, as they have a new (likely) secondary receiver to go alongside A.J. Brown. Woods is a fine receiver, with a healthy target share alongside receptions and yards.
For fantasy, at least in the short-term I don’t think this is a great move. Woods suffered a major injury mid-way through the season, which puts his availability to get in a good offseason in a new team in question. He is going to need to learn a whole new playbook, as well as develop chemistry with his new QB.
That’s before we even consider the way that the Titans play the game. The Titans pass the ball nowhere near as much as the Rams do. That is the issue with Woods’ value on the roster- the volume just isn’t going to be there. The way he plays doesn’t lend itself to a really efficient performer either.
Woods has an absolute ceiling of a low-end WR2, which assumes Woods is as effective as he ever was for the Rams and he recovers from his injury effectively, which are both really going to be hard. He feels like a player that is going to fall into WR3 territory.
