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.
