St. Louis Rams

St. Louis Rams


Overall Outlook
The St. Louis Rams cannot catch any luck at the quarterback position. Sam Bradford is out again with an ACL tear which will likely cost him his second season in a row. So, even with an incredibly talented defense, and upgrades at WR, the Rams will struggle to get to .500 again.  


Offseason Moves
Key additions: WR Kenny Britt, DT Alex Carrington, QB Shaun Hill
Key losses: CB Cortland Finnegan, SS Darian Stewart, QB Kellen Clemens, G Harvey Dahl, G Chris Williams, G Shelley Smith

Offensive Outlook
The Rams will look to veteran Shaun Hill to run the offense in 2014.  He has been a solid QB in the past, but has never shown the ability to elevate a team from mediocrity.  Zac Stacy should be a focal point of this offense, and the emergence of Britt, Austin, and Quick could turn this team into a solid contender, but we see them as being a year away. 

Projections - 2014
QB1 - Shaun Hill - Passing - 3200  yds / 22 tds 
RB1 - Zac Stacy - Rushing - 1300 yds / 9 tds  Receiving - 35 recs / 200  yds / 1 td
RB2 - Benjamin Cunningham - Rushing - 300  yds / 1 td  Receiving - 20 recs / 175 yds / 0 tds
WR1 - Kenny Britt - Receiving - 75 recs / 900  yds / 8 tds
WR2 - Tavon Austin - Receiving - 45 recs / 500 yds / 4 tds Rushing - 175  yds / 2 tds
WR3 - Brian Quick - Receiving - 40 recs / 400 yds / 4 tds
TE1 - Jared Cook - Receiving - 45 recs / 600 yds / 4 tds

Defensive Outlook
The Rams defense is freaky good. With superstars all over the field, they have a chance to be a top 2-3 defense for years to come.  Adding Aaron Donald in the draft to plug in next to Robert Quinn and Chris Long will have offensive coordinators pulling their hair out.  We see them as a strong DST1 in redraft leagues.  As for IDP, look for Quinn, Long, Donald, Laurinaitis, Ogletree, Jenkins and McDonald to all fit in as solid to excellent IDP players.
