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.

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 said Thursday, June 6, that he has been impressed by the team's young group of wide receivers, and he has already noticed tremendous improvement. "It's definitely come a long way since two, three weeks ago when we first started with those rookies," Bradford said. "I've been really impressed by some of the young guys that we've had - (WR Tavon Austin) and (WR Stedman Bailey) - I though they've done a great job. We're asking them to play a lot of different positions right now. Of course there's still mistakes, but for the most part they've been extremely sharp."

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin took some handoffs during organized team activities Friday, May 24. Austin rushed for 643 yards and three touchdowns on 72 carries last season at West Virginia. He likely will not receive many carries this season but it is something opponents would have to account for during games.
Fantasy Tip: The team will look for multiple ways to get the ball in Austin's hands this season because of his speed and elusiveness. Owners could consider looking at Austin as a No. 5 fantasy wide receiver in their drafts this season.

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher wants to get the ball into the hands of WR Tavon Austin as much as possible, in any way that they can. "We're going to try to get the ball to him as often as we can, however we do that," Fisher said.
Fantasy Tip: Good news that the coaching staff wants to get Austin involved as much as possible, either by passing or running the ball out of the backfield. Continue to watch how Austin is used as the team goes through training camp and exhibition games. It looks like Austin is a rookie to watch moving forward.
