Rams | Austin Pettis reworks deal

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 00:13:25 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Austin Pettis has reworked his contract with the team to save some cap room. Pettis has agreed to slice his base salary for 2014 by more than half, from $1.431 million to just $700,000. In exchange for taking a pay cut, Pettis received a $250,000 signing bonus. Because he's in the final year of his contract, the bonus won't be prorated at all, but it still results in nearly $500,000 worth of cap savings for the Rams.

Rams | Austin Pettis key in red zone

Tue, 24 Jun 2014 05:41:25 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Austin Pettis did some of his best work in the red zone this spring. It's clear that QB Sam Bradford has a lot of confidence in Pettis in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: Pettis is worth a flyer as a WR4.

Rams | Kenny Britt signs

Mon, 31 Mar 2014 16:25:22 -0700

The St. Louis Rams signed free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Titans) to a one-year, $1.4 million deal Monday, March 31, according to a source. The deal could wind up being worth as much as $2.9 million. Britt will receive $550,000 in guarantees.

Fantasy Tip: Britt has a chance to start anew, and a reunion with coach Jeff Fisher in a new environment could rejuvenate the struggling wideout. If Britt can eliminate dropped passes and endear himself in this offense, he could be a surprise as a WR3 or 4 opposite Tavon Austin. He won't be given the job outright, though; he'll have to compete for a starting spot with Austin Pettis and Chris Givens.

Rams | Kellen Clemens expected to start

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 10:06:33 -0700

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.

Rams | Austin Pettis shows well

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 22:19:24 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Austin Pettis had career highs with eight catches and 78 receiving yards in the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the decent stat line, he is only worth a look as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Rams | Might only keep five WRs

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:00:40 -0700

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.

Rams | Chris Givens, Austin Pettis atop early depth chart

Tue, 16 Jul 2013 20:03:30 -0700

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.

Rams | Brian Quick tumbling down depth chart?

Sun, 16 Jun 2013 20:44:04 -0700

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.

Rams | Two finish as starting WRs after spring

Sun, 16 Jun 2013 20:42:34 -0700

St. Louis Rams WRs Austin Pettis and Chris Givens were working as the starting outside wide receivers as spring practices wound down.

Fantasy Tip: Pettis and Givens might be solid No. 4 fantasy wideouts, as occasional WR3 or flex plays, on draft day if they can maintain their starting spots in training camp and the preseason.

Rams | Austin Pettis impressive during workouts

Sat, 15 Jun 2013 08:34:09 -0700

St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said he was very impressed with how WR Austin Pettis has performed during offseason workouts. "Quite honestly, he's probably having the best camp of all the skill players," Schottenheimer said. "He's just a tireless worker. Very competitive. ... He's having a tremendous spring." Austin has worked at split end and in the slot during workouts. He also appears to have created chemistry with QB Sam Bradford in the red zone.

Rams | New-look offense developing

Wed, 12 Jun 2013 14:56:56 -0700

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.

Rams | Two to see more responsibilities

Fri, 22 Mar 2013 19:03:44 -0700

The St. Louis Rams plan to lean on WR Austin Pettis and Brian Quick more in 2013 with WRs Danny Amendola (Patriots) and Brandon Gibson (Dolphins) leaving via free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Pettis and Quick might be decent late-round fantasy additions on Draft Day, but right now they should be considered as nothing more than WR4 or 5 with some upside.

Rams | Trio of WRs could be moving up

Sun, 17 Feb 2013 17:49:14 -0800

If impending free-agent WRs Danny Amendola (Rams) and Brandon Gibson (Rams) are not brought back, that would leave St. Louis Rams WRs Chris Givens, Austin Pettis and Brian Quick as the only wideouts under contract with the team in 2013. However, head coach Jeff Fisher doesn't sound concerned either way, noting the team could look for help outside the organization. "Not a concern whatsoever," Fisher said. "There's options out there. The free-agent market, there's options out there, and it's a great draft for a receiver this year."

Rams | Danny Amendola injury update

Sat, 06 Oct 2012 04:44:20 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Danny Amendola (shoulder) suffered a "shoulder separation where the collarbone meets the chest," according to a source who has spoken with the player. Amendola is expected to miss six to seven weeks, and he could return around Week 11 or 12. A combination of WRs Steve E. Smith and Austin Pettis is best suited to replace Amendola in the slot. The team is expected to keep Amendola on the active roster.
