Rams WR Chris Givens was the most productive of the 2012 rookies, leading the Rams with 698 receiving yards on 42 catches. Early in the season he caught passes of 50 yards-plus in five consecutive games, becoming the first rookie in league history to do so.
As the season progressed, Givens got more comfortable running short and intermediate routes, which made him more than a one-trick pony.
“He improved weekly,” HC Jeff Fisher said. “We were able to do more and more with him as he got more familiar. I think he knows that this is his opportunity.”
Givens definitely has sleeper potential now that Danny Amendola isn't gobbling up 9.1 targets per game. In the five games Amendola missed, Givens averaged 8.0 targets per game. He averaged 4.0 TPG with Amendola in the lineup.
