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.

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.

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.

St. Louis Rams wide receivers coach Ray Sherman said the team knows what WR Chris Givens can do as a deep threat, but want him to work in his intermediate routes because the team wants to use his speed on those routes. The team also had Givens add some muscle to help with his ability to get off press coverage as well as his blocking ability.

St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens said he is looking to improve his play this season and have a breakout season. "I'm really looking to improve my game," said Givens. "To make this year a mission statement for me and just to really come out and show I can do more than last year." Givens said he and QB Sam Bradford have chemistry because they have worked out a lot together.

St. Louis Rams WRs Chris Givens and Austin Pettis are each listed as projected starters on the team's initial depth chart heading into training camp. WRs Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey and Brian Quick are listed as 'key contributors'.
Fantasy Tip: There is still plenty to be hashed out during training camp and the preseason, but Givens is the best of the lot in terms of fantasy appeal due to his big-play ability.

St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick reportedly had a disappointing spring, and he tumbled down the unofficial depth chart, working as the No. 4 receiver as organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp ended. However, it is believed the rookie Tavon Austin, Chris Givens and Austin Pettis just had better practices, as offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer had good words for Quick. "(Quick's) doing a lot better. He's stepped up this year. He's just much more comfortable," Schottenheimer said.
Fantasy Tip: As such, unless Quick can work his way back into a starting role, or injuries strike others at the position, he is only worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues.
