  Rams | Austin Davis likely to start    Sun Sep 21, 11:12 AM

St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis is likely to start Sunday, Sept. 21, against the Dallas Cowboys. QB Shaun Hill (thigh) is likely out.

Footballguys view: Davis looked solid for a backup last week, and if he can win this week, he could earn another start in Week 5 after the Rams bye, despite Jeff Fisher's protestations that Hill is the starter when healthy.

  Rams | Tavon Austin questionable    Fri Sep 19, 04:22 PM

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: That Austin even practiced is a great improvement from an original outlook that had him out for at least this week. He still has great value in return yardage leagues if he can play this weekend.

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) will be a game-time decision in Week 3.

  Rams | Limited practice for Shaun Hill    Wed Sep 17, 05:35 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Hill may not be able to play again this week. If not, then the team will continue to feature Austin Davis as their starter. Davis plays within the offense, but he doesn't exactly fill the air with footballs. This limits the fantasy value of those in the Rams passing game.

  Rams | Stedman Bailey expected to play    Wed Sep 17, 12:26 PM

St. Louis Rams WR Stedman Bailey is expected to practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and play Week 3 after having his four-game suspension lifted. Bailey's role may be limited during the game.

Footballguys view: We'll see how much (if at all) Bailey cuts into the targets for Brian Quick. We've finally seen Quick begin to play up to his potential, and we like him as a flex play in Week 3.

  Rams | Tavon Austin may play Week 3    Mon Sep 15, 06:08 PM

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) is dealing with a mild knee sprain but has a chance to play Week 3, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Footballguys view: Um, okay. This goes against an earlier report saying that he could miss a couple of weeks. Fantasy owners should look at the Austin situation like this: if a tree falls in the woods and nobody is there to hear it, does it make a sound? The Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is not a savvy visionary, so with or without Austin does it make a difference?

  Rams | Tavon Austin to miss time    Mon Sep 15, 01:40 PM

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) has been diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral ligament and is expected to miss around two weeks, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners weren't relying on Austin anyway...and now they can feel free letting him go in more shallow leagues. He's a fine talent, but he's not used the right way in the mind-numbing and boring Brian Schottenheimer offense.

  Rams | Tavon Austin injured    Mon Sep 15, 03:08 AM

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) sustained a knee injury during the team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Austin will undergo more tests Monday, Sept. 15.

Footballguys view: The fantasy prospects for Austin are held down even if he is 1000 percent healthy. The Brian Schottenheimer offense just doesn't know how to get the most out of a player like Austin.

  Rams | Shaun Hill is the starter    Mon Sep 15, 02:43 AM

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) will return to the starting role when healthy, according to Rams coach Jeff Fisher. QB Austin Davis has filled in for the past two weeks.

Footballguys view: Davis didn't look terrible in Week 2. Brian Quick's fantasy owners are certainly happy with the way Davis kept feeding their player the rock. Fantasy owners in deep dynasty leagues should be encouraged by Davis' play, but he's still only a decent backup option and not some diamond in the rough.

  Rams | Shaun Hill will travel    Sat Sep 13, 12:17 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) will travel with the team for their Week 2 game, but he is still considered questionable at this point. QB Austin Davis likely would start if Hill is not able to play.

Footballguys view: Hill didn't look fantastic in the brief moments he played, so we aren't sure how effective he will be against a Tampa Bay defense that let backup Derek Anderson (Panthers) go 24/34 for 221 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions. We'd avoid both him and Davis this weekend.

  Rams | Shaun Hill questionable    Fri Sep 12, 03:49 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is questionable for Week 2.

  Rams | Shaun Hill misses practice    Thu Sep 11, 09:58 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 11 because of a thigh injury, but offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said Hill might not have to practice this week in order to be able to play Sunday, Sept. 14, because of his experience and knowledge of the offense.

Footballguys view: It doesn't really matter who starts for the Rams at quarterback. The offensive outlook is pretty bleak at this point.

St. Louis Rams DE Chris Long (ankle) will undergo ankle surgery and is expected to miss significant time.

  Rams | No QB controversy for Rams    Mon Sep 8, 07:42 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (quadriceps) was removed from the game in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings due to a strained left quadriceps and not because of his poor performance, head coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Monday, Sept. 8. Hill went 8-for-13 for 81 yards and an interception before departing late in the first quarter. Hill did not return to the game because it was decided that he could only make his injury worse by playing.

Footballguys view: When the switch at quarterback was made, there was a bit of confusion among those covering the team. It sounds like things are much more concrete than some feared. Fisher said that if Hill is healthy, there is no quarterback controversy.

  Rams | Shaun Hill a long shot to play    Mon Sep 8, 05:16 PM

Updating a previous item, St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (quadriceps) is 'a long shot' to play in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after undergoing an MRI exam on his strained quadriceps Monday, Sept. 8. The team will have a better idea on his status by Wednesday, Sept. 10, or Thursday, Sept. 11. Hill went 8-for-13 for 81 yards and an interception in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings before being injured.

Footballguys view: The Rams offense looks pretty inept, regardless of the QB situation (thanks Brian Schottenheimer!). Fantasy owners need to look elsewhere for value plays.

  Rams | Shaun Hill may not play    Mon Sep 8, 02:11 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (quadriceps) may not play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, Sept. 14, as he has a strained quadriceps.

Footballguys view: Looks like it could be another week of Austin Davis. Fantasy owners want to avoid members of the Rams offense with Davis under center. Even backs like Zac Stacy or Benny Cunningham will be negatively impacted by the inexperienced quarterback. There's a chance that Case Keenum could take over as the starter as well.
