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.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Nick Toon was battling with Brandon Coleman for the Saints No. 3 wideout spot but he suffered a high ankle sprain in the team’s second preseason game and will miss 2-3 weeks. If Brandin Cooks, Marques Colston and/or Coleman were to get hurt, Toon would have seen his snaps increase.

Fantasy Downside
Toon was reportedly having a disappointing camp before suffering the injury. The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported there was "still a question” as to how much the Saints liked Toon even before he injured his ankle. With Cooks, Colston and Coleman firmly ahead of him on the depth chart, Toon offers little to no fantasy upside.

Bottom Line
Toon currently ranks as our WR99 and is going undrafted in 10 and 12-team leagues. Unless there’s an injury, Toon isn’t even a viable streaming option heading into the season.
