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

Feb 26, 10:12 PM St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason didn't play until Week 6 of last season because of his issues with pass protection, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Feb 26, 04:12 PM St. Louis Rams DT Kendall Langford was released Thursday, Feb. 26, saving the team $6 million in salary cap space.
Feb 24, 09:23 PM The St. Louis Rams are likely to release OT Jake Long this offseason for savings against the salary cap, according to beat writer Nick Wagoner.

Fantasy Impact: It makes sense. Long can't stay healthy and is likely to think about retirement this offseason.
Feb 24, 05:23 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford will probably not be traded this offseason despite interest from the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills. As of Tuesday, Feb. 24, no teams have contacted the Rams about trading Bradford.
Feb 24, 02:53 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is not being pursued by the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.
Feb 21, 02:02 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has reportedly drawn interest from the Cleveland Browns, but Bradford will likely be staying with the Rams.
Feb 20, 02:32 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is coming back-to-back seasons of anterior cruciate ligament tears in his knees, but head coach Jeff Fisher is betting on Bradford to be the team's quarterback in 2015. Fisher said that Bradford remains ahead of schedule in his rehab and is working at the team's complex every day. Bradford won't be used any differently in training camp or the preseason in order to try and prevent another injury.
Feb 20, 12:12 PM St. Louis Rams OG Greg Robinson (toe) underwent toe surgery after the season was over, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Feb 18, 04:13 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford may still have a future with the Rams after general manager Les Snead said Wednesday, Feb. 18, that deleting Bradford is not the answer. Snead reiterated that eliminating Bradford was not the answer when asked about trade rumors involving the injury-prone quarterback.
Feb 18, 02:23 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has permission to seek a trade. Bradford's agent can speak to other teams, but it will be difficult to find compensations to the Rams liking.
Feb 17, 02:23 AM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is being watched by the New York Jets. Bradford has one year left on his contract with the Rams and carries a $16.58 million hit to the salary cap. The Jets cannot touch Bradford unless St. Louis cuts him and lets him hit free agency.
Feb 14, 02:22 PM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford isn't facing any competition currently, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher had previously said that Bradford would have competition for the starting quarterback position, but said that competition isn't currently in the building.
Feb 14, 09:02 AM St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is expected to return to the team next season and likely will be the starter if he is healthy next season. The team would like him to restructure his contract in order to lower his salary cap hit, but there has not been much movement in those talks.
Feb 13, 05:52 PM St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin will be more involved in the offense next season, according to offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti.
Feb 08, 08:22 PM The St. Louis Rams could released C Scott Wells this offseason if they decide to get younger at the center position. An outright release saves the team $3.5 million. He is due a $1 million roster bonus on the third day of the new league year which begins March 10.
