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

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.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Brian Quick was on pace for 64 receptions, 973 receiving yards and eight touchdowns before suffering a devastating shoulder injury in a Week 8 loss to the Chiefs last season. Quick and Jeff Fisher have both said the injury was viewed as career-threatening at the time, but Quick has recovered to have an excellent training camp. Thanks to his size (6-foot-3, 218 pounds) and speed, Quick is the Rams best option to lead the team in receiving yards. As the team's No. 1 wideout, he is a legitimate WR3 with WR2 upside.

Fantasy Downside
Quick played in the Rams third preseason game, but wasn't with the starters and wasn't targeted. St. Louis may decide to take it slow with Quick, even though he looks fully recovered from the shoulder injury that robbed him of nine games a year ago. The other downside to Quick's fantasy potential is the fact that the Rams offense has a new quarterback, a new offensive play-caller and will be run-heavy this season. It could take awhile for QB Nick Foles to get the timing down with his new receivers, which has been evident in camp and preseason as the quarterback has been inconsistent. The Rams' offensive line has also been a problem due to inexperience, and if the unit doesn't gel quickly, the entire offense could be bogged down.

Bottom Line
Due to his skill set, Quick should receive the most targets among the Rams receivers this season. His production will be somewhat suppressed due to St. Louis' run-first offense, but at worst he's a WR3 with WR2 upside. Ranked as our WR49, Quick is worth a late-round flier.
