Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher was asked about the development of his wide receivers on Sunday and spoke well about the main ones, from Kenny Britt to Tavon Austin to Pharoh Cooper.

Then he got to Brian Quick.

"Brian needs to catch the football," Fisher said. "Your receivers have to catch it, not drop it."

Catching is indeed is the fundamental skill required, and it is one Quick continues to struggle with. Quick's catch percentage last season, 31.3, was the eighth-lowest in the NFL. He had 32 targets and hauled in only 10 of those. And on Saturday, a 21-20 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, Quick played with the second-team offense and caught only two of the five passes thrown to him by rookie quarterback Jared Goff.

Rams re-sign WR Brian Quick

WR Brian Quick has agreed to terms and will return to the Rams for the 2016 season.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a curious move by Quick since it seems like he fell out of favor in 2015 as he came back from a shoulder injury.

Ravens trade for Chris Givens

Turf Show Times - [Full Article]

The Rams have reportedly traded WR Chris Givens to the Baltimore Ravens on the back of the news that WR Brian Quick is set to make his 2015 debut after three weeks among the inactives and the addition of an extra WR on the practice squad in recently signed Nick Toon.

With Givens the seeming impediment ahead of Quick on the depth chart, who knows what has gone down inside the front office in dealing with the wide receivers over the last month.

Givens was a fourth-round selection for the Rams in the RGII trade-boosted 2012 NFL Draft who was in his contract year with free agency looming in the 2016 offseason.

Fantasy Impact:

The Ravens need WR help with the news Breshad Perriman is considered out indefinitely. Givens will challenge Marlon Brown and Kamar Aiken for playing time. Michael Campanaro, who had a TD on Thursday night, was placed on IR.

'There's a chance' that Rams WR Brian Quick will be active this week

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The St. Louis Rams can't score and can't move the ball. Might it be time to dust off Brian Quick for Sunday's matchup against the unbeaten Arizona Cardinals?

“There’s a chance that he’ll be up this week,” coach Jeff Fisher told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch of Quick, who has been inactive for the first three games despite not appearing on the injury list.

Fantasy Impact:

We wouldn't run out and pick up Quick though he's definitely a player to monitor this week. He was posting WR3-type numbers before his injury last season.

Rams WR Brian Quick likely to be inactive vs. Steelers

Rams coach Jeff Fisher has repeatedly said Brian Quick's absence isn't related to his shoulder but is more a function of making the game-day numbers work with special teams.

Fisher said earlier this week that Quick hasn't been ruled out for this week's game against Pittsburgh, but chances are Quick will have to remain patient for at least another week.

“It’s like anybody that’s missed a significant part of the offseason program and was limited in training camp, you’re going to be a little bit behind," Fisher said. "That’s his only issue. So I’d like to think he’s caught up by this point.”

Fantasy Impact:

Quick's case is curious since he was far and away the team's best receiver for the first part of the season in 2014 and according to everyone involved, he's completely healthy. He's worth a stash in larger formats, but it may be a while before he works his way into the starting lineup.

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

Sunday, August 23, 2015, 9:12am

ESPN - [Full Article]

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

Friday, August 7, 2015, 2:28am

USA Today - [Full Article]

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.

Rams GM Les Snead says whole team, save OL Cody Wichmann, passed conditioning test and ready to go. Includes WR Brian Quick (shoulder).

The arrival of Nick Foles should be good for his prospects in 2015. The sooner he's practicing fully, the better, though he'll likely be eased in at the start of camp.

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

Adam Schefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

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.
