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.
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.

Week 2 at Washington
Tavon Austin rushed for 17 yards and a touchdown while also adding a score on a punt return in the Rams overtime win over the Seahawks in Week 1. His rushing touchdown came on a nice play design by OC Frank Cignetti, who clearly wants to ensure Austin is involved in the weekly game plan. But consistency has also been an issue for the former top-10 pick and he'll need to do more to prove he's not just a gadget player. Austin ranks as our WR61 and can be avoided in all formats.
