Brian Quick deserves another shot


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2014) After emerging as the Rams' go-to guy in Weeks 1-5, wide receiver Brian Quick has fallen on hard times the last two weeks, catching a combined three passes for 43 yards.

But the matchups weren't exactly working in his favor. The 49ers, who he faced in Week 6, ranked second against the pass before getting lit up by the Broncos in Week 7, and the Seahawks, who he faced in Week 7, still have Richard Sherman. It's pretty clear the Rams didn't want to throw the ball his way. They targeted Quick just two times against Seattle.

The thing is no one has really replaced Quick as the Rams' go-to guy the last two weeks. Tight end Jared Cook got a bunch of targets in Week 6, but that's been going on all year, really, and running back Benny Cunningham was the Rams' leading receiver in Week 7 with only 46 yards.

The Rams haven't forgotten about Quick. The matchups have simply forced them to make do without him the last two weeks. His Week 8 opponent, the Chiefs, have actually been pretty good against the pass themselves, but given that they've allowed the 11th-highest quarterback rating, it might just be a product of circumstances. You may not want to start Quick for that game, but you'll want to hold on to him to see if he bounces back.


Brian Quick targeted just twice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Rams leading receiver Brian Quick was targeted just twice in the home win over the Seahawks, as quarterback Austin Davis chose not to challenge Richard Sherman's tight coverage. Quick caught both passes for 33 yards, giving him 43 scoreless yards over the past two games.

Quick will try to get going Week 8 at Kansas City.


Tough matchup could limit Brian Quick again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Brian Quick was looking like the top option in the Rams' passing attack and a solid Fantasy option until his one-catch performance in Week 6 against the 49ers. Now, with  Richard Sherman and the Seahawks on the schedule in Week 7, he might not have a great chance to bounce back this Sunday.

The Seahawks have mostly held opposing No. 1 receivers in check this season, even if their overall pass defense isn't as stout as we might have expected coming into the season. They are allowing opposing wideouts to score 20.6 Fantasy points per game overall, but no No. 1 receiver has even reached double figures though five games; the likes of Jordy Nelson (8 points), Demaryius Thomas (5) and Dez Bryant (6) have all been held in check by Sherman.

Part of the issue for opposing receivers is that quarterbacks simply aren't throwing to Sherman's part of the field. Among cornerbacks who have played at least 50 percent of their team's snaps, only one player has been targeted fewer times than Sherman so far, according to ProFootballFocus.com.

Quick should be able to bounce back at some point, but this simply is not a great matchup for him. Look for better options in Week 7.


Brian Quick a victim of a tough matchup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) Don't feel bad, Brian Quick owners. The Rams came up against a 49ers defense in Week 6 that ranks second against the pass, allowing 207.3 yards per game. The bigger surprise than his one-catch, 10-yard performance would have been if he had actually put up numbers.

He still has basically every game but this one. The only other time he was light on targets, getting four Week 3 against Dallas, he made up for it by scoring a touchdown. Prior to this game, Austin Davis always managed to find Quick.

I'm chalking it up as an aberration. My one concern -- and it's a big one -- is that the Rams host the Seahawks in Week 7, which is seemingly another tough matchup. But while the 49ers rank second against the pass, the Seahawks rank a not-so-intimidating 19th, allowing 252.2 yards per game. Still, with Richard Sherman ... it just seems kind of risky.

In leagues where I had options, I'd probably sit Quick for one more week. But I still like him overall. I'm certainly not dumping him.


Brian Quick makes little noise on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Rams No. 1 receiver Brian Quick caught one of four targets for 10 yards in Monday's home loss to the 49ers. San Francsico blanketed Quick in coverage, and when he got open Austin Davis wasn't able to hit him.

It was a highly disappointing performance for Quick, who had seven catches for 149 yards and three touchdowns in his previous two games. Quick plays the Seahawks in Week 7.


Slow your roll on Brian Quick


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2014) Brian Quick has emerged as the Rams' top wide receiver this year. He gets consistent targets and is, in my mind, must-own. But I'm not sure he's an automatic start Week 6 against the 49ers. They're pretty good at stopping the pass, you know.

And Austin Davis is still pretty unproven at quarterback. He lit up the Eagles and Cowboys his last two times out, but neither of them had anywhere close to the fourth-ranked defense against the pass.

Of course, Davis wasn't as productive in Weeks 1 and 2, throwing for less than 250 yards in each, and Quick still finished with good numbers, so it's not like all hope is lost. I just don't know that I'd have him in my top 15 wide receivers, like Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard do.

Among the wide receivers I'd start ahead of him: Kelvin Benjamin, Steve Smith, DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Julian Edelman.


Go get Brian Quick on waivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Jamey Eisenberg has been beating the Brian Quick drum for a while in his weekly waiver-wire column, and he hopes the message finally sinks in after Quick's two-touchdown performance in Week 5. Here is what Jamey has to say about Quick in his Week 6 column:

"He's scored at least seven Fantasy points in all four games this season in a standard league and at least 14 points in PPR. He has nine targets in three of four outings, and he's scored three touchdowns in his past two games, with two coming in Week 5 at the Eagles. He's easily the best receiver and likely the best weapon for the Rams, and [Austin Davis] is leaning on him."

Quick is still unowned in 35 percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues, but that number should shrink to the single digits after waivers run Tuesday evening. He should be the top priority for any owner looking for a wide receiver. 


Brian Quick showing staying power


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) After he torched the Eagles in Week 5, there probably is not much reason to doubt Rams receiver Brian Quick. He is clearly the No. 1 option in a passing offense that is much more effective than anyone anticipated.

Quick scored for the first time in the team's last game, and followed it up with a two-touchdown performance in Week 5, giving him three on the season. However, he was productive even before he found the end zone, and is now averaging 80.5 receiving yards per game -- this is no flash in the pan.

Quick had just 29 receptions for 458 yards in his first two full seasons, but the Rams are leaning on him heavily right now. He is tied with Jared Cook for the team lead in targets, with 31 through four games.

Quick's limited track record for success might make some dubious about his chances, but he wouldn't be the first high former draft pick to take a few years to find himself. Quick might be a must-add receiver on waivers this week.


Brian Quick snags two touchdowns in Week 5 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Rams wide receiver Brian Quick caught five of his nine targets for 87 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in his team's 34-28 loss to the Eagles in Week 5.

Quick put his team on the board with an eight-yard snag on third-and-goal in the second quarter after quarterback Austin Davis was able to buy some time with his legs. He was also reponsible for the team's last score, bringing the Rams to within six by making a back-shoulder catch from five yards out with the defender playing too far off the receiver. Quick is locked in as Davis' top option moving forward. The Rams will host the 49ers on Monday night in Week 6.


What to do if big-time WRs sit out Sunday?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) With Texans receiver Andre Johnson and Calvin Johnson of the Lions game-time decisions for their games this Sunday, Fantasy owners might be left scrambling for a replacement if they are ruled out. Luckily, both players play 1 pm EST Sunday, giving plenty of time for Fantasy owners to find a suitable replacement, if need be.

Some players you might want to look in to as possible fill-ins for the Johnsons are: Giants WR Rueben Randle (74 percent owned) vs. Atlanta; Rams WR Brian Quick (63 percent) at Philadelphia; Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (59 percent) at Tennessee; and Chargers WR Eddie Royal (81 percent) vs. N.Y. Jets. 


Brian Quick facing a great matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Rams wide receiver Brian Quick has emerged as the team's top option in the passing game, and he has a good chance to put together another solid performance with the Eagles on the schedule in Week 5.

Quick leads the team in targets with 22 through three games, and could be set to turn in a big performance Sunday. The Eagles allow the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receiver, with six touchdowns and 173.5 yards per game allowed.

The quarterback situation in St. Louis is worrisome, but Quick has found success in spit of it so far. He is not a slam dunk by any means, but Quick has some upside for Fantasy purposes in Week 5, given the matchup. 


Which receivers are worth adding this week?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal has been targeted at least six times in every game so far this season, and his big performance in recent weeks is enough to convince Jamey Eisenberg to put him at the top of his waiver-wire priority list ahead of week five.

Additionally, Jamey tabs Brian Quick of the Rams, Rueben Randle of the Giants, Malcom Floyd of the Chargers and Andrew Hawkins of the Browns rounds out the top five at wide receiver, with Odell Beckham of the Giants, Davante Adams of the Packers and Brandon LaFell of the Patriots possible sleepers.

If you need to clear a spot on your roster for any moves this week, consider parting ways with Kendall Wright, Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Riley Cooper


Looking ahead at Week 4 WR waiver wire options


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.  


Brian Quick catches long touchdown in Week 3 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Rams wide receiver Brian Quick caught just two of his four targets but racked up 64 yards and a touchdown in his team's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys.

Quick outran Morris Claiborne in coverage in the second quarter to haul in a 51-yard touchdown reception that put his team up 14-0 but was held in check for the remainder of the game. He had seven receptions and nine targets in each of the team's first two games, but Austin Davis spread his 42 attempts around Sunday, with eight different Rams catching the ball and six men seeing at least four targets. Quick has 16 receptions, 235 yards and one touchdown going into the bye. He'll face the Eagles in Week 5.


Brian Quick has another seven-catch performance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Rams wide receiver Brian Quick was Austin Davis' primary option in a Week 2 win over Tampa Bay.

Quick caught a 14-yard pass, followed by a 16-yard reception on the opening drive. He caught a 5-yard pass in the second quarter and finished the first half with three receptions for 35 yards. Quick caught four more passes in the second half and finished the game with seven catches for 74 yards, averaging 10.6 yards per grab.

Quick has seven receptions in each of his first two games. He has 14 grabs for 173 yards through two games.


Brian Quick finally settling in for Rams


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) After two disappointing seasons in the NFL, Rams wide receiver Brian Quick could be poised for a breakout season in 2014. He was one of the team's biggest surprises during training camp and the preseason, and he carried that success into the season opener, totaling seven catches for 99 yards against Minnesota.

Quick said the biggest difference this season is his understanding of the speed of the NFL game, according to ESPN. He said it took some time to learn an NFL offense and route tree after joining the NFL from Appalachian State, where he played in a basic offense.

"That was the biggest adjustment was coming in and learning the playbook," Quick said. "It kept me from playing fast, but now that I really feel that I’m dialed in and I can move fast and know the plays, that’s what I’m feeling." 

Quick added being a starter has also helped in his progression.

"Sitting on the sideline, not getting reps and then getting in a close game and going in, it’s kind of hard to adjust," Quick said. "But now being a starter and going in, I’m doing the best I can playing fast and knowing the offense. It’s a lot easier for me." 


Brian Quick leads receivers with 99 yards in Week 1


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Rams wide receiver Brian Quick led the offense with seven receptions and 99 yards in his team's 34-6 loss to the Vikings Sunday.

Quick set the pace on the offense's first play from scrimmage, picking up 23 yards. He caught four of his five targets with Shaun Hill in the game in the first half and three of his four targets in the second half after Austin Davis took over. Quick had 88 yards on five receptions and scored a touchdown during preseason play. He'll attempt to stay on a roll against the Buccaneers in Week 2.


Brian Quick will 'really miss' Sam Bradford


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Rams receiver Brian Quick "is really going to miss" quarterback Sam Bradford, who's out for the year with a torn ACL, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "They finally developed chemistry on downfield throws during this preseason," the paper added. "Quick has been running good routes and going after the ball."

Now Quick will be catching passes from Shaun Hill, a game manager with limited arm strength.


Kenny Britt among Rams' starters


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) The Rams' first depth chart lists Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin as the starting wideouts, reports ESPN.com. Brian Quick and Stedman Bailey are the backups, with Chris Givens and Austin Pettis on the third string.

Rams' Brian Quick turning some heads


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/31/2014) Former NFL general manager-turned-SiriusXM NFL Radio host Phil Savage tweeted Wednesday that Rams receiver Brian Quick has displayed production matching his size and speed. The team is encouraged, according to Savage. 

More praise for Quick came from ESPN, who reported earlier this week that he was off to a good start, reeling in a pair of deep passes on Tuesday. And even Jeff Fisher got in a compliment. 

"Brian, early on in his career, if he wasn't sure, he wasn't quite full speed," Fisher told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "Brian is learning to just go. Good things happen when you run hard."

Quick, 6-foot-3 and 218 pounds, has long been a tempting breakout candidate thanks to his fleet feet, but in his first two seasons he's tallied just 29 grabs for 458 yards and four touchdowns. 


Rams OC says Brian Quick is 'most improved player'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said Tuesday that receiver Brian Quick has really stepped up this spring. Quick has been a massive disappointment since he was taken with a second-round pick in 2012. 

"[P]robably the most improved player I've seen is Brian Quick," Schottenheimer said. "He's doing a great job. Another guy that we're giving an opportunity to. He's competing for playing time. He's made the most of his opportunities. He started today. ... [H]e's stepped up and made a lot of big plays for us."

Over two seasons Quick has 29 catches for 458 yards (15.8 avg.) and four touchdowns. 


Rams get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Rams got a few minor contributions in their Week 17 loss at Seattle. Receiver Austin Pettis caught both his targets for 15 yards and running back Benny Cunningham had a 2-yard reception.

Wideout Chris Givens was targeted four times without a catch. He ran once for minus-4 yards. Receiver Brian Quick was unable to secure his lone target.


Rams receivers do little in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Rams didn't need much from the passing game in Week 16 against the Buccaneers, so they got little production out of the receiving corps in a 23-13 win.

No receiver for the Rams had more than 50 yards on the game, and role players Brian Quick and Austin Pettis barely made any impact. Both players finished with 16 yards on two receptions, while being targeted twice in the game.

Neither Quick nor Pettis has managed to do much recently. The Rams finish the season in Week 17 against the Seahawks. 


Brian Quick scores second TD of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Rams wide receiver Brian Quick enjoyed a solid performance as he scored his second touchdown of the season during Sunday's loss to the 49ers in Week 13.

Quick came down with a short, 3-yard pass from Kellen Clemens with 23 seconds remaining in the game. He was targeted four times and finished the game with three grabs for 41 yards and a touchdown in a 23-13 defeat.

Quick has five catches for 60 yards and a touchdown over his last two games. He'll look to stay productive in Week 14 at Arizona.


Stedman Bailey, Brian Quick both finish with 19 yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) Rams wide receivers Stedman Bailey and Brian Quick each finished Sunday's 42-21 win over the Bears with 19 receiving yards. Bailey got all of his yardage on one pass reception (off one target), while Quick caught two (off two targets). 

The yardage represents a career high for Bailey, while Quick now has 245 yards on the season. 

The Rams face the 49ers in Week 13.
