When Rams fans ventured out to Rams Park for training camp or Lindenwood for their scrimmage, they noticed that one receiver stood out above the rest.

Danny Amendola. A lot of fans still don't embrace him, since he arrived as an extra guy off another team's roster, but all this guy does is perform.

“Danny has come out here and kind of sparked things,” Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said after Tuesday’s practice.

He has been head and shoulders above the competition thus far in training camp, despite his slight stature.

He has caught everything thrown and kicked his way. He has looked as quick afoot as ever.

Amendola, the team’s unlikely receiving leader from a year ago, seems determined to keep his top target status. He has been The Man thus far, despite the return of Donnie Avery and the team’s addition of veteran Mike Sims-Walker and rookies Austin Pettis and Greg Salas.

Common sense suggests the shifty Amendola, the rangy Sims-Walker and the speedy Avery will lead this group if healthy. Each offers unique skills and relative experience.

Fantasy Impact: 

Another report says that Brandon Gibson has been starting alongside Amendola and Sims-Walker in all three-receiver sets, so Avery is looking like a reserve at this point.
