Rams expecting WR Brian Quick to be "a big part" of offense

Turf Show Times - [Full Article]

It sounds like Rams WR Brian Quick is expected to contribute right away.

"Brian improved from yesterday to today," HC Jeff Fisher said. "He settled down a little bit."

The specifics of the depth chart have yet to be determined. Fisher made it sound like Quick will be sitting near the top when training camp finally rolls around in August.

"We expect him to play and be a big part of our offense," Fisher said. "We don't think about it any other way than that. That's why we drafted him, and we expect him to do it."

Since the draft, Fisher and GM Les Snead's high opinion of Quick has been no secret. He's been on their radar for a long time, and was even said to be something of a "1b" option when ranked next to the 1st-round receivers.

"It's a long time between now and the opener, so we feel like he's got a chance to continue to develop and become more comfortable with what we're doing," Fisher said. "We wouldn't have taken him at the spot where we took him were we not convinced that he was one of those guys that could learn fast and help us very early in the season."

Fantasy Impact: 

There is plenty of opportunity for Quick to earn snaps and targets given the current state of the Rams WR corps.
