Tre Mason - RBPosted 2/27/15 12:54pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason didn't play until Week 6 of last season because of his issues with pass protection, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: Mason, a 2014 third-round pick, had 116 of his 179 rushes, 495 of his 765 yards and three of his four rushing TDs over the final seven games of the season and looks to be the be the Rams' clear No. 1 back entering the 2015 season. Still, be somewhat wary as we were saying the same things about Rams' 2013 rookie Zac Stacy a year ago.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 2/24/15 5:40pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is not being pursued by the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The former No. 1 overall pick, who's played a total of seven games over the last two injury-plagued seasons, figures to get one more campaign to prove himself with the Rams unless the franchise is bowled over by a trade offer.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 2/22/15 1:20am ET
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has reportedly drawn interest from the Cleveland Browns, but Bradford will likely be staying with the Rams.
Huddle Up: The Browns continue to look for solutions at quarterback, but it's not like the Rams are any more set at the position with or without Bradford. Given that St. Louis promoted their offensive coordinator from within in order to keep some continuity to Bradford's offense, it's unlikely the Rams want to start over at the position.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 2/14/15 12:03pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is expected to return to the team next season and likely will be the starter if he is healthy next season. The team would like him to restructure his contract in order to lower his salary cap hit, but there has not been much movement in those talks.
Huddle Up: Bradford has flashed skills during brief spurts of good health, and with the Rams unlikely to be able to get out from the bulk of his contract--and no other quarterback options on the horizon--one more shot might be the team's best bet.
Tavon Austin - WRPosted 2/13/15 8:40pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin will be more involved in the offense next season, according to offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti.
Huddle Up: Austin's total touches climbed from 49 to 67 in his second season while his receptions (40-31) and receiving yardage (418-242) took dips. In short, a lot more needs to be seen from 2013's eighth overall pick before he can be trusted in any sort of fantasy format.
Chris Givens - WRPosted 2/8/15 8:51pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens is scheduled to have a base salary of $1.574 million with a cap count of $1.698 million. The team might deem it too much if Givens is the fifth receiver in a group with WRs Kenny Britt, Brian Quick, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey. Releasing Givens would save the team $1.574 million.
Huddle Up: Givens, a fourth-round pick in 2012, actually had his best season as a rookie, catching 42 passes for 698 and three TDs. He is coming off a 11-159-1 season a year ago, and those numbers alone indicate that he won't be back in St. Louis.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 2/8/15 8:59pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford may be asked to restructure his contract this offseason, so the team can reduce his $12.985 million salary for 2015. Bradford counts $16.58 million against the salary cap next season, but the team could save $12.985 in cap space if Bradford is released.
Huddle Up: Expect the 2010 No. 1 overall pick to get another shot in St. Louis -- likely with competition. A restructured deal, though, is almost certainly in the offing for the injury-addled QB, who has only been able to start seven combined games over the past two seasons.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 1/25/15 1:37pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt and his agents have started contract talks with the team. Britt, who has been in St. Louis just one season, indicated he wanted to remain with the club past 2014.
Huddle Up: Britt led Rams' WRs with 48 catches for 748 yards and three scores in 2014, and while he's certainly a solid WR, the Rams also need to find the play-making No. 1 wideout they've lacked for years.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 12/31/14 12:34am ET
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford won't be guaranteed the starting quarterback position next season as head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear Tuesday, Dec. 30, that there will be a quarterback competition in training camp. Bradford said he's coming along fine in a press conference Tuesday and has even started running. Bradford tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the preseason.
Huddle Up: Bradford has missed 31 of a possible 64 games over the last four seasons, and the Rams certainly need to draft or sign another potential starter this offseason simply for insurance reasons if anything else.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 12/31/14 9:28am ET
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is wanted back by the team to compete for the starting quarterback position next season. However, head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear that nothing will be guaranteed for Bradford. Bradford continues to rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and he heads into an uncertain offseason. Fisher said the team plans to bring Bradford back at a reduced rate next year. He currently is scheduled to cost $16.58 million against the salary cap. Bradford plans to remain in St. Louis in the offseason to continue his rehab, and he said his knee feels better this time than the last time he had the same ailment.
Huddle Up: Bradford has been unable to stay healthy as a pro, and he's in the final season of his gaudy contract so it will be interesting to see how the team convinces him to rework his deal with free agency looming. If healthy he'd be the best QB option on the roster and might finally have some protection in front of him and receivers to work with... but we kind of said the same thing heading into 2014 and it didn't work out so well.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 12/9/14 11:41pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt (non-injury related) returned to practice Tuesday, Dec. 9, and was listed as a full participant after resting Monday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: Britt had a hot stretch last month but has caught only 5 passes for 102 yards and no scores over the last three games. In other words, certainly not a WR you can trust in the fantasy postseason.
Chris Long - DEPosted 11/21/14 3:04pm ET
St. Louis Rams DE Chris Long (ankle) likely will not play in Week 12, but the team is not ruling out the possibility, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: IDP-league alert for the Rams' stud DE who has been out of commission since the season opener.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 11/20/14 10:07am ET
St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt has not had any contract talks with the team, nor there have been communications about negotiations. Britt has said he wants to stick with St. Louls. "Hopefully I can stay here after this season and be in this locker room," Britt said. "It's hard to put a team together like this in the locker room, with this chemistry."
Huddle Up: We'll see just how much Britt wants to stick in St. Louis once teams start throwing free agent money at him this offseason.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 11/16/14 10:12pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt posted four receptions for 128 yards and a 63-yard touchdown in the Week 11 game against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Britt is the Rams No. 1 receiver but he'll be inconsistent week-to-week in St. Louis' offense. He's a weekly WR3/4 going forward.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 11/16/14 10:12pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason carried 29 times for 113 yards in Week 11 against the Denver Broncos, the most against the Broncos rush defense this season. It was Mason's first career 100-yard rushing game, too.
Huddle Up: Mason looks like he has finally distanced himself from Benny Cunningham and Zac Stacy. In his last five games, Mason has carried the ball 18, 7, 19, 14 and 29 times. He's a RB2 heading into next week's game against the Chargers.
Chris Long - DEPosted 11/12/14 9:56am ET
St. Louis Rams DE Chris Long (ankle) may be able to participate in practice this week, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Long is currently on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: IDP leaguers take note as one of the one of the true DE difference-makers should be back on the field in the next few weeks.
Shaun Hill - QBPosted 11/12/14 3:54pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill will start Sunday, Nov. 16, against the Denver Broncos, replacing the benched Austin Davis.
Huddle Up: After topping 300 passing yards and throwing for three TDs in two of his first three starts, it's been a struggle of late for Davis, who's turned the ball over 12 times this season. Going back to the veteran Hill, though, shouldn't have much of a fantasy effect, though, on the rest of the Rams' skill players.
Zac Stacy - RBPosted 11/10/14 11:22am ET
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy is playing special teams in Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals, serving as the upback for RB Benny Cunningham on the kickoff team.
Huddle Up: In case you haven't been paying close attention to the St. Louis backfield, Stacy has completely fallen out of the RB rotation with nary a touch in the last 2 games. Rookie Tre Mason has compiled 38 touches as the starter during that span, while Cunningham (13 touches) has settled in as the change-of-pace back.
Austin Davis - QBPosted 11/10/14 8:08pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis will continue to be the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: After averaging 312.3 yards per outing and posting a 6-2 TD-to-interception ratio in his first 3 starts, Davis has averaged 174.4 yards and had a 6-6 ratio in the 5 ensuing games. Still, Davis and the Rams beat the Seahawks and 49ers during that span, and not many folks in the organization are pining for the return of Shaun Hill quite yet.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 11/3/14 11:22pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason received the start in Week 9, but head coach Jeff Fisher is not ready to name Mason as the team's starting running back.
Huddle Up: Mason received 20 of the team's 27 RB touches Sunday, and figures to see the majority of the work again Week 10, but Fisher and the Rams have been anything but predictable when it comes to the RBs this season. You'll likely have to make your best guess and roll the dice if you need to count on a St. Louis back in the coming weeks.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 10/31/14 8:23pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt (hip) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Britt is the Rams No. 1 receiver at the moment with Brian Quick out for the season. However, for fantasy purposes he's no more than a risky WR4/5.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 10/30/14 11:58pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt (hip) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 30, after being limited Wednesday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: This was a day of progress for Britt, who was limited Wednesday. The WR also should see his targets increase with fellow wideout Brian Quick now out for the season.
Zac Stacy - RBPosted 10/28/14 5:12pm ET
St. Louis Rams RBs Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham each were on the field for 18 snaps in Week 8. RB Zac Stacy received 15 snaps during the game.
Huddle Up: Mason and Stacy had 8 touches apiece in the game, while Cunningham had 5 but none of the three scored or gained more than Stacy's 37 total yards. All three backs should continue to be involved and it'll be a roll of the dice trying to figure out which will score and attain fantasy relevancy in any given week.
Brian Quick - WRPosted 10/27/14 1:24pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) is likely out for the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder and torn rotator cuff.
Huddle Up: It's a big blow for the Rams offense. Quick was in the midst of a breakout season with 25 receptions for 375 yards and three touchdowns. Kenny Britt and Stedman Bailey will now be the Rams top two receivers with Quick out. Bailey is a guy to keep an eye on.
Stedman Bailey - WRPosted 10/27/14 3:51pm ET
St. Louis Rams WR Stedman Bailey is expected to join the starting lineup with WR Brian Quick (shoulder) out for the season.
Huddle Up: With Brian Quick lost for the season Bailey will start opposite Kenny Britt. He's worth a flier in deeper leagues.
Brian Quick - WRPosted 10/26/14 11:59pm ET
Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick (arm) left the locker room after the Week 8 game against the Kansas City Chiefs with his left arm in a sling.
Huddle Up: The extent of Quick's injury isn't known yet. The Rams should provide an update on Monday. However, with Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator, he'll probably replace Quick by rotating three receivers if he misses any time.
Zac Stacy - RBPosted 10/24/14 3:05pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy, who didn't have a touch in Week 7, could remain a factor in the backfield in Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Earlier in the week, head coach Jeff Fisher said Stacy could have 25 carries Sunday, Oct. 26. However, the team is likely to give RB Tre Mason every opportunity to develop the hot hand this weekend.
Huddle Up: Sure, you don't figure on Stacy drawing a total blank every week, but the No. 1 gig fully appears to be Mason's job to lose at this point. Benny Cunningham, who has scored in each of the last 3 games and leads the team's backs in receptions with 16, will also continue to be involved as well.
Tre Mason - RBPosted 10/22/14 4:05pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason could be the top candidate for a majority of carries since he is averaging 5.4 yards per carry. Mason rushed for 85 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in Week 7 and received most of the carries because he had the hot hand, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. RB Zac Stacy was announced the starter for Week 7 but only played one snap. RB Benny Cunningham only rushed for three yards during the game. Stacy is averaging 3.93 yards per carry this season, while Cunningham is averaging 3.78 yards per carry.
Huddle Up: Mason, the team's third-round pick and a hot waiver-wire pickup this week, is the best bet to get the most work Sunday in K.C., but another fumble -- like the one that was allegedly recovered by a teammate late in Sunday's win over the Seahawks -- or poor pass-blocking if the Rams fall behind by a couple of scores, could send him back to the bench, no matter if he is posting the most impressive rushing numbers.
Austin Pettis - WRPosted 10/20/14 8:00pm ET
The St. Louis Rams waived WR Austin Pettis Monday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Pettis was inactive Sunday after catching 12 passes for 118 yards and a TD in the previous 4 games, but with a deep -- and still mediocre -- WR corps, the Rams felt he was expendable.
Zac Stacy - RBPosted 10/18/14 8:38pm ET
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy may have his workload cut after offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer confirmed the team will use the running back with the hot hand late in the game. 'Early in the game, we try to get guys multiple touches (and) then we try to go with the hot hand late in the game,' Schottenheimer said. 'Most places that I've been that have really good running games, they had the people to spread the ball around. Different backs bring different types of plays.'
Huddle Up: Stacy, Benny Cunningham and Tre Mason will all be in line for carries in the coming weeks. It's a fantasy mess that is best left alone for the time being if possible. Mason has the highest ceiling of the threesome.
