From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 17): It seemed laughable that the Rams were putting Shaun Hill back in after chucking him to the side earlier this year, but he had the last laugh, with a good job taking care of the ball and hitting Kenny Britt deep on two early shots to stake the Rams to a lead. He's got value in leagues where every starting QB is rostered.

Week 12: at San Diego Chargers

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Shaun Hill beat Peyton Manning last week, with 20/29 for 220 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown (three sacks for -14 yards taken by Hill). The win was a big improvement over the Austin Davis era of losing - Hill relied on Kenny Britt heavily (seven targets for 4/128/1 receiving) in his return to action. Benny Cunningham handled four receptions for 41 yards as the second-highest receiver on the team last week; Stedman Bailey (five for 3/26/0) and Jared Cook (three for 3/19/0) helped keep the chains moving for Hill. The Chargers' pass D kept the Raiders out of the end zone last week, holding them to 16/34 for 162 net yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -10 yards. It was a big improvement over the debacle in Miami (24/34 for 288 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions with zero sacks of Ryan Tannehill, and 309 net yards allowed to Miami's quarterbacks as a duo) To date, the Chargers are ranked sixth in the NFL averaging 222.4 net yards passing, 17 TDs given up vs. a mere four interceptions (next-to-last in the NFL) and only 17 sacks (tied for 25th) generated. This is a neutral matchup for Hill and company, who may not pile up passing/receiving yards but have a good shot at a couple of TDs with little risk of throwing multiple interceptions.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 11 vs DEN (20 / 29 / 220 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Shaun Hill finally got a chance to start a game for St. Louis. After 2 months of letting young Austin Davis take the reins, Jeff Fisher handed the keys over to the veteran. Going against the Broncos, things were setup for Hill to throw the ball a lot. But the Rams surprisingly shut down the Broncos, Jeff Fisher ran a very conservative clock-killing gameplan, and Shaun Hill converted a few deep balls to give the Rams a shocking victory over the Denver Broncos. The Rams have not had a good year, but they've managed to beat both super bowl teams from a year ago, which has to be frustrating to their fans. Hill was very efficient, but also made some big throws early. He started things off with a nice drive deep into Broncos territory that ended in a field goal. Later on the Rams 3rd possession, Hill just fired the ball deep downfield to Kenny Britt, who beat his cornerback, ran under the ball and ran 63 yards for the TD. Hill did a great job of getting the ball far enough downfield that the WR didn't have to break momentum or wait for the ball. This let Britt run under it, make the catch and run for the TD. Hill came out firing again on the next drive, hitting Bailey across the middle for a big first, then throwing an accurate strike to Kenny Britt for 21 yards on a crossing route. Overall, Hill was very efficient in the first half, the Rams had good balance, and Kenny Britt was running wild. In the 2nd half, the Rams had a solid lead, and Fisher and the Rams ran clock and played ball control. Tre Mason ended up with 29 carries, and Shaun Hill didn't get a lot of throws. But he did convert a number of key third downs, helped move the chains and played turnover-free football. Hill wasn't asked to do much in this game, but when he did go downfield, he had success.

Rams | Austin Davis benched (Wed Nov 12, 10:59 AM) - St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis has been benched, and QB Shaun Hill will start in Week 11 Sunday, Nov. 16.

Our View: So much for being the starter for the rest of the year (as Jeff Fisher proclaimed earlier this season). Davis had been struggling, but we're uncertain if Hill is going to make any difference.

Rams | Shaun Hill to start (Wed Nov 12, 10:58 AM) - St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill will start Sunday, Nov. 16, against the Denver Broncos.

Our View: Hill is back in the starting lineup for the Rams, and it downgrades all skill position players on the Rams. We're not looking to this offense with much (if any) confidence in Week 11 against the Broncos.
