Is this true? Sorry I didn't save a link or remember where I read it but I saw an article saying Woods is playing slot today.

I'm kinda wondering if this is means good news for Reynolds since he gets the start on the outside? I do like Woods here. Woods has been money! RAMS trusting Reynolds on the outside and Woods in the slot is encouraging.

“Versatility is Woods’ greatest attribute, among many, which is why the 49ers won’t know what to expect from him, even with Kupp out. Woods runs all types of routes and is averaging 14.6 yards per catch in 2018.

“He is a great piece to this offense,” running back Todd Gurley said. “I am glad to have him. It is going to show up on tape. Now they don’t know where he is going to play. He is not just a Z. He could be the X, the F or whatever. He has been doing a great job.”

Gurley wasn’t randomly running through the alphabet. The “Z” is Woods’ primary position, as a flanker on the strong side of the offense. The “X” is the split end position usually filled by Brandin Cooks, but Woods can do that also.

Then there’s the “F,” the slot spot. When Kupp left each of the past two games early with injuries (first a concussion, then the knee), Woods moved over to the slot and thrived. Now the Rams have options.“
