St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens will have a bigger role in 2013, as the team saw WRs Danny Amendola (Patriots) and Brandon Gibson (Dolphins) leave via free agency. Givens was more comfortable running short and intermediate routes as the season progressed last season, rather than just being a downfield threat. "He improved weekly," head coach Jeff Fisher said. "We were able to do more and more with him as he got more familiar. I think he knows that this is his opportunity."
Fantasy Tip: Givens had several long touchdowns last season, and fantasy owners were very familiar with him. However, he should be targeted even more frequently this season, making him a nice low-end WR2 or flex fantasy play. Look for a lot more consistency in terms of fantasy production in 2013, as last season he was mostly all or nothing.

If impending free-agent WRs Danny Amendola (Rams) and Brandon Gibson (Rams) are not brought back, that would leave St. Louis Rams WRs Chris Givens, Austin Pettis and Brian Quick as the only wideouts under contract with the team in 2013. However, head coach Jeff Fisher doesn't sound concerned either way, noting the team could look for help outside the organization. "Not a concern whatsoever," Fisher said. "There's options out there. The free-agent market, there's options out there, and it's a great draft for a receiver this year."

St. Louis Rams WR Danny Amendola (foot) is inactive for the team's Week 14 contest at the Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Tip: Chris Givens has benefited in recent weeks with Amendola unavailable or severely limited, so that should continue. He's a solid WR3 or flex player against Buffalo.

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher hinted that WR Chris Givens could have an expanded role the last four games of the season now that he's improving his short game. "Yeah, we've been talking about that. He's got to bring his game from the long touchdown passes back closer to the line of scrimmage and be more proficient in the short and intermediate passing game, and he's doing that. He's getting to where he needs to get to. He's making the quick catches. It's also very helpful when you have an accurate quarterback to put the ball where he needs to put it. He's a guy that, hopefully, as we push through the rest of the season, will have more plays. What we're looking for is the run after catch opportunities for him, but he's improving," Fisher said.

St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens posted a career-best 11 receptions for 92 yards in the Week 13 game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Sun, 25 Nov 2012 21:25:48 -0800
St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens finished with five receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 win against the Arizona Cardinals.
Fantasy Tip: It was Givens' first career 100-yard game, and his five catches were also a career best. He has found the end zone three times in the past six games. He has emerged as a dependable WR3/4 or flex play in leagues of 12 or more teams.
