Rams Beat: Brian Quick will be team's most productive pass catcher

Rams WR Brian Quick hasn't really been limited except for the yellow beanie he wears, which reminds his teammates to avoid contact with him.

Other than that, to my eye, he's clearly been the team's best and most consistent receiver. He looks healthy, he sounds determined and he has a greater appreciation of the game after having it taken from him last year because of a devastating shoulder injury.

Does that mean Quick will become the No. 1 type of dominant wideout many hope he can? I don't know if I'd go that far. But barring a setback, I expect him to be the team's most productive pass catcher in 2015.

Fantasy Impact:

You've probably read a few stories on 4for4 about the Rams WRs, mostly how they don't have one standout but they expect to excel as a group. That's not always a good sign for fantasy owners, and while we have Quick rated the highest of the Rams WR, he's only 52nd on our list. The Ram WRs are more of late-round adds to fantasy teams for depth with the hope one stands out. Quick may at least give you the best odds.

Rams WR Brian Quick (collarbone) back in team drills

Rams WR Brian Quick worked out on his own during OTA's, but is back in team drills to start training camp. The Rams are bringing him on slowly, putting a yellow no contact cap on Quick's helmet.

"We're keeping him off the ground, but he's running," HC Jeff Fisher said. "He's still got a little bit of motion and flexibility to work on and some strength. But by all means, we expect him to be back."

Fantasy Impact:

Quick was posting solid WR3 numbers in both standard and PPR formats before his shoulder injury in Week 8. He's currently the 50th WR off the board at the end of the 10th round. The arrival of Nick Foles should be good for his prospects in 2015.

When it comes to Rams receivers, Kenny Britt isn't the only one with something to prove. Brian Quick, who flashed some promise in the first half of 2014, is recovering from shoulder surgery that prevented him from enjoying a potential breakout season. Quick figures to be the other starter opposite Britt on the outside if and when he returns to full strength.

Beyond that duo, the Rams have a pair of former West Virginia Mountaineers still looking to break out in Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey. That pair will likely battle for playing time in the slot. Chris Givens, who might be in his final go-around with the team if he's unable to offer more in 2015, projects as the fifth wideout.

Fantasy Impact:

While it's not an impressive group in terms of potential fantasy numbers and rankings, the team hopes having stability at QB with Nick Foles will help the passing game. There were also heavy investments made in the offensive line - and at running back with draft pick Todd Gurley. As a result, the story said, the Rams believe this is the year for at least one or two of the wideouts they've been so patient with to emerge. The offense figures to be run-first, so the Rams don't need a wideout to post stud numbers, the team instead needs receivers to make big plays when presented with an opportunity.

Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) 'running routes against air'

St. Louis Rams - [Full Article]

Rams HC Jeff Fisher gave an update on wideout Brian Quick, whose suffered a season-ending shoulder injury against Kansas City in 2014.

Brian Quick is probably the one we have to watch,” Fisher said. “We’ll have to watch him, keep him out of contact, but he’s running routes against air. He’s catching and progressing nicely.”

Fantasy Impact:

Quick was posting solid WR3 numbers in both standard and PPR formats before his injury in Week 8. He's currently the 50th WR off the board at the end of the 10th round. The arrival of Nick Foles should be good for his prospects in 2015.

Brian Quick (shoulder, rotator cuff) likely out for year

Rams WR Brian Quick has a dislocated shoulder and torn rotator cuff.

Fantasy Impact:

Schefter added that Quick is likely done for the season. In an ugly offensive performance, Kenny Britt did catch two balls for 52 yards to lead the way for the Rams in Week 8. Tavon Austin and Chris Givens could have increased roles as could Stedman Bailey.

Brian Quick unsure severity of arm injury

Rams WR Brian Quick had sling on left shoulder in locker.

Fantasy Impact:

Thomas' Tweet also said Quick isn't sure of the severity of the injury. It wasn't a pretty offensive display by the Rams but Kenny Britt did catch two balls for 52 yards to lead the way. Tavon Austin and Chris Givens could have increased roles if Quick were to miss time as could Stedman Bailey.

At receiver, the Rams listed starters are Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin. Brian Quick is listed behind Britt but it's safe to expect that duo to be on the field together regularly with Austin in the slot. The Rams also list two starters at tight end with Jared Cook and Lance Kendricks on the top line.

Fantasy Impact:

Britt, Quick and Austin have all been available in the later rounds due to the uncertainty of how targets and snaps will be distributed. This is not going to be a great pass offense, but Shaun Hill is capable and at least one of these receivers will be fantasy relevant in 2014.

Chris Givens was once thought to be the one receiver on the Rams roster who would play and play a lot this year, but Givens has been surpassed by Kenny Britt, Brian Quick, Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin.

He's playing in the preseason with the second-and third-team offenses and isn't doing much to stand out when he does play.

Against the Saints, Givens was targeted twice and was unable to come up with a catch for the second week in a row. He had a chance to make a play on one jump ball against a defender but couldn't come down with it. Givens isn't getting many opportunities, and when they come, they're with backup quarterbacks. That's going to make it tough for him to move up the depth chart.

Sam Bradford sharp in comeback

Saturday, August 16, 2014, 7:06pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

Returning from an offseason of rehabbing a torn left ACL, Rams quarterback Sam Bradford made his preseason debut Saturday afternoon at Edward Jones Dome against the Packers.

Notably taking his first in-game snap in exactly 300 days, Bradford piloted two drives, one in which was capped by a 11-yard strike in traffic to tight end Lance Kendricks for a score.

Bradford’s second series began when he stood tall in the pocket and rifled a pass for a 41-yard, catch-and-run completion to wide receiver Brian Quick.

Later in the drive, rookie offensive tackle Greg Robinson was outmuscled by a Julius Peppers’ bull rush move. Peppers drilled Bradford’s backside, but the fifth-year quarterback popped right up.

Sporting a clunky left knee brace, Bradford showed comfort operating in the pocket. He finished completing 9 of 12 passes for 101 yards.

Fantasy Impact:

The article called Bradford 'sharp' and said it was an encouraging sign for him heading into next week's game. Looks like it's all systems go for Bradford to start Week 1 for the Rams. He's ranked 25th and likely won't get drafted but could prove to be a nice committee QB if he continues to look good in his return.

Nick Wagoner said Rams WR Chris Givens was expected to take a step forward in 2013 but never got on track.

In this camp, he's already lost reps to Kenny Britt, Brian Quick, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey and is getting little work with the first offense in practice. He's already been bumped to third on the depth chart and will need a big finish to work his way back to a starting role.
