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 WR Danny Amendola said new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's scheme is a big reason for his early success. Amendola leads the NFL in receptions (20) and is third in yards (230). "So far in the NFL this is my fourth offense, and Schotty's offense is the most intricate one, at the same time it has a mixture of all of them," Amendola said. "It's very effective, it has the capability of making big plays, and we are all excited about it."

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford said he is working with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer to fix and ultimately speed up his pocket mechanics. Bradford has absorbed 70 sacks in 26 career games through two seasons. "That's a lot of what I've talked about with Schotty so far," Bradford said. "Two days ago in camp, I thought I had a really good practice. I'm not sure the ball hit the ground once. And we got in the film room, and (Schottenheimer) was all over me about getting the ball out of my hands even quicker, to eliminate hits. He's made it a big point ... It's part of my job to help the protection and get the ball out of my hands and make sure that, even if it's not a sack, I'm eliminating the unnecessary hits."
