QB: Sam Bradford or Marc Bulger? Doesn’t really matter, neither are going to help your fantasy team this year. Bradford will probably be pretty popular in the late rounds of keeper leagues though. In all reality the quarterback situation in St. Louis might have a bright future, but now is not the time to be taking a quarterback from them.
RB: This might be the only guy you want to take from the whole Rams team. Stephen Jackson has proven to be a workhorse over the last few years. He gets the ball a lot, and puts up big numbers. Although he had disappointing TD numbers last year, the yards were still there. He is a fantasy owner’s dream, and look for him to go high again this year. He’s worth going after simply because he gets touches. It’s hard to make plays without touches right? Jackson will get his yards again this year, and for your sake hopefully get his TD numbers back up there.
WR: Donnie Avery might be the only guy even consider looking at from the receiving corp. Even at that, he will be a late round receiver. Avery is entering his third year and starting to figure everything out, but he could really hit a snag if the #1 overall pick gets the starting nod this season. A lot of people are saying Avery is going to blow up this year, I just don’t see it. I think Bradford is going to be seeing some time at QB at that is really going to stunt Donnie’s development.
TE: None of the Rams tight ends excite me. Daniel Fells is the closest thing they’ve got to a TE and he’s been battling injuries this summer so far. Fells will still get some TD’s as it seems they look to him quite a bit in the red zone, but he’s not going to tear up your stat sheet. Don’t draft him.
Defense: I would rank the Rams defense as last in the league. That should be enough for you to stay away. They are going to need to make major improvements before they can call themselves a “defense.” The good news is that the quicker they let the other team score, the more reps Sam Bradford will get.
Sleeper: Laurent Robinson is the closest thing to a sleeper that the Rams have. He took a huge step forward and started the first preseason game against the Vikings after breaking his league last year. He had a good first few games last year, and showed his potential. Maybe take him as Mr. Irrelevant in your fantasy draft?
Not much to say about the Rams, although I do think Sam Bradford will make a hell of a quarterback someday. Until then stay away from everyone on the Rams roster not named Stephen Jackson.
