Rams | Chris Givens to have bigger role

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.
