St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said he was very impressed with how WR Austin Pettis has performed during offseason workouts. "Quite honestly, he's probably having the best camp of all the skill players," Schottenheimer said. "He's just a tireless worker. Very competitive. ... He's having a tremendous spring." Austin has worked at split end and in the slot during workouts. He also appears to have created chemistry with QB Sam Bradford in the red zone.

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is working with the same offensive coordinator in consecutive seasons for the first time in his career, but plenty has changed about the team's offense. With RB Steven Jackson gone, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer will now run the O through Bradford while trying to bust more big plays. "The speed that we have acquired and what we have on the outside now -- and even the inside -- it suits us more to spread it out and play more one-back this year," Bradford said. He also thinks defenses will have to design specific coverages for some of the speed weapons, a reversal from St. Louis' more predictable offense last season.
Rookie WR Tavon Austin is lining up in the slot, on the outside and in the backfield. Schottenheimer said Austin Pettis has had the strongest offseason of any Rams wideout. TE Jared Cook and WR Brian Quick deepen the amount of players that St. Louis hopes bolsters their red-zone potency.
Fantasy Tip: This Rams offense boasts a lot of intrigue that'll come at cheap prices in fantasy drafts. Bradford's risk has a bit more of an attractive potential behind it as a fantasy backup. Austin may become overvalued eventually but would pass as a WR4 on draft day, along with Chris Givens, their biggest breakthrough player last year. Cook might be a borderline TE1 for most of the year, if not better. Pettis and Quick might be sneaky late-rounders or free-agent bids. You can't write off this offense anymore, at least not for the cost of its pieces.

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford will ask skill position players, particularly wide receivers and tight ends, to participate in "Camp Bradford," which are informal workouts run by the quarterback at his home in Oklahoma. "Yes, I'm actually planning on that. I'm having a (youth football) camp - I believe it's the second weekend of July. So I'm planning on bringing those guys in and getting a few days of work with them, and hopefully they can stay and help out with my camp as well."

St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens connected with QB Sam Bradford on at least a few deep balls in practice Friday, May 24. Givens has added muscle and appears ready to handle a full season's workload.
Fantasy Tip: The added potency of new weapons - TE Jared Cook among them - may give Bradford more cred as a high-upside QB2. Givens showed big-play flashes last year and could be a WR4 in standard-scoring formats.

The St. Louis Rams offense is likely to be more high octane after adding plenty of weapons via free agency and the draft by QB Sam Bradford. However, it was holdover WR Chris Givens which Bradford was working with on the long ball during organized team activities (OTAs).

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is expected to take more of a leadership role on offense in 2013, especially with RB Steven Jackson (Falcons) having moved on during the offseason. "You now we saw it was coming (last season)," head coach Jeff Fisher said. "Sam really took things over the second half of the season. We've got guys who can stand up and take charge and carry the torch. I'm not concerned about that. Sam, I was very impressed with how he handled things."

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher indicated the play of QB Sam Bradford was negatively affected by some of the other players on offense this season but is happy with Bradford performed in 2012. "His play was directly affected by the people around him. There's times when it's difficult to step up in the pocket and make the good throw. That's not the quarterback's fault. That's whatever's going on out front," Fisher said. "We're pleased with what Sam did. He's got an exciting future. I know he's really excited about coming back in here in April and getting started and not having to learn another offense."
