ESPN - [Full Article]

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.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
There's reason to believe that 2014 will be a breakout year for Brian Quick, who's entering his third year in the NFL. He drew rave reviews in camp and through three weeks, he's caught five passes for 88 yards and a touchdown in preseason action. After struggling to get on the field his first two years, it looks like Quick is ready to live up to the expectations that the Rams had for him when they took him in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He's the projected starter opposite of Kenny Britt, who's been equally impressive this offseason.

Fantasy Downside
It's not like Quick hasn't turned heads before. He provided optimism coming out of training camp in both 2012 and 2013, only to disappoint once the regular season started. He also isn't even the No. 1 receiving option in a run-first offense so his production could be limited. There's still a reasonable chance that he'll be a real-life second-round bust.

Bottom Line
While his stock was a bit higher before Sam Bradford's season-ending knee injury, owners could do a lot worse than nabbing Quick as a late-round flier. He's an injury to Britt away from being the No. 1 option in the passing game and even though he's teased us before, it would appear that he's turned the corner as a professional. It took Roddy White and Vincent Jackson a full three years before they produced in the NFL and perhaps Quick is on the same path as those veterans. He certainly has the skill set; now he just has to produce in game action. He has WR4 upside so if you're in a deep league, keep him in mind in the later rounds (or perhaps after the draft as a waiver wire pickup).
