Woods’ 2017 Season By the Numbers

Posted Jan 23, 2018

WR Robert Woods made a big impact on the Rams offense in his first season back in Los Angeles.

Wide receiver Robert Woods was one of the Rams top free agent signings of the year — making a significant impact as both a possession receiver and a vertical threat.

Here’s a look at Woods’ 2017 campaign by the numbers:

1 playoff appearance in the NFC’s Wild Card round — marking Woods’ first career trip to the postseason. 

2 multi-touchdown games. In fact, the contests came in back-to-back weeks. The first in the Rams’ 51-17 victory over the Giants and the second in the club’s 33-7 win over the Texans.

3rd-and-33. On 3rd-and-33 from the Giants’ 47-yard line, the USC product took a screen pass 52 yards to the house. It was the first time any NFL team had converted a  third down with at least 30 yards to go in 28 years.

4th highest output in a postseason game in Rams history and 4th receiver in franchise history to post at least 100 receiving yards in his postseason debut. Woods notched a team-high nine receptions for 142 yards in the Rams playoff loss to the Falcons.

5 touchdowns scored, which ties the highest total of his career (five touchdowns in 2014). The number is also good for No. 3 on the team — tied with wide receiver Cooper Kupp.

12 games played during the 2017 regular season. This season was the most productive of Woods’ career even though he missed three games with a shoulder injury.

56 catches. Woods was one of quarterback Jared Goff’s favorite targets this season. He finished the year ranked No. 3 on the team in both amount of targets (85) and overall receptions (56). 

94 yard touchdown — Goff’s 94-yard touchdown pass to Woods is the longest play from scrimmage by a Rams player since Bucky Pope caught a 95-yard touchdown pass from Bill Munson in 1964. It was also the third-longest reception in franchise history and the longest of Woods’ career.

171 yards. Woods recorded the highest single-game output of his career in Week 10 when the wideout notched 171 yards receiving and two touchdowns.

781 yards receiving overall — the most of his career. Woods finished the season with an average of 13.9 yards per catch.
