Rams | Kenny Britt signs

Mon, 31 Mar 2014 16:25:22 -0700

The St. Louis Rams signed free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Titans) to a one-year, $1.4 million deal Monday, March 31, according to a source. The deal could wind up being worth as much as $2.9 million. Britt will receive $550,000 in guarantees.

Fantasy Tip: Britt has a chance to start anew, and a reunion with coach Jeff Fisher in a new environment could rejuvenate the struggling wideout. If Britt can eliminate dropped passes and endear himself in this offense, he could be a surprise as a WR3 or 4 opposite Tavon Austin. He won't be given the job outright, though; he'll have to compete for a starting spot with Austin Pettis and Chris Givens.

Rams | Like Sammy Watkins

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 06:01:32 -0700

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher praised Clemson WR Sammy Watkins' talent, but he also said he likes what the team has at receiver. "I think with what we have on the roster right now, we can provide (quarterback) Sam (Bradford) with the talent to where we can win a lot of games," Fisher said. "We're expecting improvement. We're still seeing improvement from (receivers), for example, Brian Quick, Chris Givens who are going into their third year."

Rams | GM doesn't think WR is priority

Thu, 16 Jan 2014 14:51:40 -0800

St. Louis Rams general manager Les Snead said the team doesn't necessarily need a No. 1 wideout to compete with the rest of their division moving forward, despite the Rams finishing 30th in the league in total yards and 22nd in offensive points in 2013. WR Chris Givens led the team's receivers with only 569 receiving yards last year, and St. Louis hasn't had a receiver even reach 700 yards since former WR Torrey Holt in 2008.

"I go back to this and the answer is really 'no' on that," Snead said. "I think our receivers right now, I truly believe as they progress and the oldest guy just finished his third year, we cannot have another receiver around here and we're going to be a good football team."

Rams | Kellen Clemens expected to start

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 10:06:33 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Kellen Clemens is expected to start at quarterback with QB Sam Bradford (knee) out for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Clemens everywhere, unless you're in a cavernous league that starts two QBs. Wideouts Chris Givens, Austin Pettis and Tavon Austin should be bumped down in your weekly rankings now, too.

Rams | Might only keep five WRs

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:00:40 -0700

The St. Louis Rams might only keep five wide receivers to start the regular season due to injuries at the tight end position. WRs Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey, Chris Givens, Austin Pettis and Brian Quick are considered the "big five." WRs Emory Blake, Nick Johnson and Justin Veltung are believed to be battling for the sixth receiver job.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Blake, Johnson or Veltung were to find their way onto the roster, they're a long way from having any fantasy appeal.

Rams | Chris Givens continues to impress

Fri, 16 Aug 2013 11:43:13 -0700

St. Louis Rams Chris Givens continues to impress during training camp and the preseason. He had a particularly strong practice Thursday, Aug. 15, making several acrobatic grabs to the delight of offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.

Fantasy Tip: Givens is worth plucking off the board in the area of Rounds 10 through 12 on draft day. He has good speed, and knows the offense well. Teammate Tavon Austin has been going a little higher, around Round 6 or 7, but you might actually get more value with Givens.
