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.

Dec 30, 06:53 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is wanted back by the team to compete for the starting quarterback position next season. However, head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear that nothing will be guaranteed for Bradford. Bradford continues to rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and he heads into an uncertain offseason. Fisher said the team plans to bring Bradford back at a reduced rate next year. He currently is scheduled to cost $16.58 million against the salary cap. Bradford plans to remain in St. Louis in the offseason to continue his rehab, and he said his knee feels better this time than the last time he had the same ailment.
Dec 30, 04:23 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford won't be guaranteed the starting quarterback position next season as head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear Tuesday, Dec. 30, that there will be a quarterback competition in training camp.

Fantasy Impact: It makes sense since Bradford hasn't been able to stay healthy and will be in the last season of his contract.
Dec 30, 04:13 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) said he's coming along fine in a press conference Tuesday, Dec. 30, and has even started running. Bradford tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the regular season.

Fantasy Impact: Bradford should be ready for the start of next season without any issues. He has had plenty of time to rehab the injury.
