2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
St Louis Rams
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Rams' defense has a ton of talent and might have the best pass rush in all of football. This will give them a shot to win a lot of games. The offense still has some question marks, though, especially at receiver. We aren't sure the passing game will be able to do enough for this team to make the playoffs just yet. Plus, the Rams play in the toughest division in football, which doesn't help matters. Expect them to finish around .500. Things are getting better for this team, though.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Tavon Austin had a bit of a disappointing rookie season. He did flash some good things, though, and made some big plays along the way. The Rams will find ways to get him heavily involved in the offense this season. This team needs playmakers and Austin is the most talented receiver on the roster. We expect much better things from him in his second season. Austin could emerge as a legit No. 2 for fantasy teams. The Rams will be a run-first team but they are going to have to throw the ball to keep teams honest, and Austin could lead the team in targets when they air it out.
FANTASY DUD
Tight end Jared Cook had a decent first season with the Rams but didn't quite play as expected. He still struggled with consistency, which has been an issue for him throughout his career. We don't see that changing for Cook at this stage of his career. He'll have some big games and finish with decent numbers but you can't count on him to be anything more than a spot starter. Even though Sam Bradford is back at quarterback, Cook still doesn't have a ton of fantasy upside based on his track record.

Team Notes

Mar 20, 11:52 AM St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles said he didn't know the Philadelphia Eagles were looking to trade him, despite rumors swirling about their intentions, and the first time he learned about the move was the moment Eagles head coach Chip Kelly called him to say Foles had been dealt to the Rams.
Mar 19, 09:12 AM Free-agent OG Garrett Reynolds (Lions) signed with the St. Louis Rams on an undisclosed deal Wednesday, March 18.
Mar 18, 04:23 PM Free-agent OG Garrett Reynolds (Lions) is expected to sign with the St. Louis Rams, according to a source.
Mar 16, 02:23 AM Free-agent OL Jake Long (Rams) could be back as the team's right tackle on a shorter deal that would pay less money. Any decision to sign Long to a new deal would not likely come until after the NFL Draft.
Mar 14, 11:33 AM St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt could void his contract after only one season if he performs well enough during the 2015 season.
Mar 13, 10:23 PM Free-agent WR Kenny Britt is coming back to the St. Louis Rams on a two-year, $14 million deal with $4.3 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact: Britt should remain a starter in St. Louis and could see a bump in production with a better quarterback situation this year.
Mar 13, 05:53 PM Free-agent OT Joseph Barksdale (Rams) is still receiving interest from the St. Louis Rams.
Mar 13, 12:13 PM Free-agent DT Nick Fairley (Lions) agreed to terms with the St. Louis Rams Friday, March 13.

Fantasy Impact: The Rams are going to have some defensive line this season. Fairley is a great addition for the team.
Mar 12, 09:53 PM Free-agent LB Akeem Ayers (Patriots) has signed a two-year contract with the St. Louis Rams worth $6 million with $3 million guaranteed, according to a league source.
Mar 12, 12:43 PM Free-agent DT Nick Fairley (Lions) will visit with the St. Louis Rams.
Mar 11, 06:53 PM Free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Rams) is expected to re-sign with the St. Louis Rams soon, in the opinion of NFL Media columnist Michael Silver.
Mar 11, 12:23 PM Free-agent DT Nick Fairley (Lions) will not be re-signing with the Detroit Lions after the team traded for DT Haloti Ngata Tuesday, March 10.
Mar 10, 07:03 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has officially been traded to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles also receive a 2015 fifth-round draft pick and surrender QB Nick Foles and a 2015 sixth-round draft pick and a 2016 second-round draft pick. However, the 2016 second-round pick will go back to Philadelphia if Bradford does not start.

Fantasy Impact: Foles will be the starter for the Rams, which doesn't bring him much fantasy value for the coming season, but could be worth some spot starts along the way.
Mar 10, 06:53 PM Free-agent DT Nick Fairley (Lions) will visit with the Cincinnati Bengals Wednesday, March 11, according to sources.
Mar 10, 06:23 PM Free-agent TE Lance Kendricks (Rams) has agreed to terms with the St. Louis Rams on a four-year deal worth around $18.5 million.
Mar 10, 05:53 PM Houston Texans QB Case Keenum was traded to the St. Louis Rams Tuesday, March 10, for a seventh-round draft pick in 2016, according to sources.

Fantasy Impact: Keenum could be the top backup for the Rams this season.
