2014 DRAFT GUIDE

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.

Apr 07, 01:03 PM Free-agent OT Joseph Barksdale (Rams) will visit with the Tennessee Titans this week, according to sources.
Apr 07, 01:52 AM St. Louis Rams TE Lance Kendricks took a slightly smaller offer to remain with the Rams rather than join the Atlanta Falcons during the offseason. Kendricks cited his closer relationship with tight ends coach Rob Boras and promises of an expanded role in the passing game as his reasons for staying.
Apr 05, 01:22 PM St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt is expected to produce more in the passing game next season, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. 'I can kind of share the same issue Kenny does and that's we think he can be better. I think he can do better. He thinks he can be better. He thinks he can be more productive. He's looking forward to the offensive changes. I think yeah, we should see a lot more out of Kenny this year,' Fisher said.
Apr 05, 01:02 PM Free-agent OT Joseph Barksdale (Rams) has not received a lot of interest from the Washington Redskins this offseason.
Apr 03, 08:32 AM St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy will likely be the backup to RB Tre Mason in 2015.
Apr 03, 08:32 AM St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham will continue to be the third-down back in 2015.
Mar 30, 10:12 PM The Tennessee Titans are still interested in free-agent OT Joseph Barksdale (Rams), but general manager Ruston Webster said the team will focus on the NFL Draft before re-visiting the free agent market.
Mar 27, 01:22 PM St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said it's the team's intention to draft a quarterback in this year's draft, despite trading for QB Nick Foles in the offseason. Florida State QB Jameis Winston and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota are expected to be off the board when the Rams pick with the 10th overall pick in the first round, but the Rams could also trade up to take one of them. The Rams could also look at the second tier of quarterbacks in this class, which includes Baylor QB Bryce Petty, California-Los Angeles QB Brett Hundley, Oregon QB Sean Mannion and Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson. Petty indicated that he has a visit planned with St. Louis. Rams QBs Austin Davis and Case Keenum will compete for the backup job, and the loser might be on the street if the Rams draft another quarterback.
Mar 26, 06:52 PM St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) is making progress in recovering from a torn rotator cuff and separated shoulder he suffered last October. Head coach Jeff Fisher has described Quick's injuries as significant and has not disclosed any timetable in regards to Quick's return. Fisher did say that Quick is coming along after a difficult time during the early stages of rehabilitation.
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.
