Week 3: vs Dallas Cowboys
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. As of midweek, we're in limbo as to who will start at quarterback for the Rams. Stay tuned to the Footballguys.com Players in the News to see whether Shaun Hill or Austin Davis is expected under center. As of mid-week, our guess is that Davis will the the start - he's projected by David Dodds to have 20/31 for 237 yards passing, 1.3 TDs thrown and .9 interceptions in this game. That places Davis at #30 overall fantasy quarterback - fantasy owners should look at other options when considering fantasy starters this week due to the uncertainty around the quarterback situation in St. Louis. Dallas' pass D is mediocre, ranking 13th in the NFL averaging 212.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with three TDs given up to date and two interceptions generated (along with three sacks so far). Last week, Jake Locker managed 18/34 for 232 net yards passing, one TD and two interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -2 yards. Whoever starts for the Rams has a neutral matchup vs. Dallas. Don't expect a stunning day from either Davis or Hill, and then you won't be disappointed.

2014 Week 1 vs MIN (8 / 13 / 81 / 0 / 1 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
The nightmare season continues for St. Louis. Shaun Hill entered the game as the starting QB. Playing behind a patchwork line that did NOT include number 2 pick Greg Robinson, Hill had his work cut out for him. Minnesota won the battle up front all day long, leaving the STL qb's with minimal time to throw. Likely the story in St. Louis will be a lot of moaning and groaning about the QB. But the issues with this team go far deeper than QB. Hill was under pressure from the start. On the first possession he had to throw it away on 3rd down due to heavy pressure. On the 2nd drive, Stacy dropped a screen pass, and then Fisher chose to kick a long field goal instead of try for a 4th and 1. Then the Rams got goofy and lined up Tavon Austin at running back, which didn't do anyone any favors. False starts, offensive pass interference penalties and miscommunications led to a horrible start for St. Louis. Despite this, Hill wasn't doing terrible, as he was managing the game. But towards the end of the 2nd half, he made a horrible mistake that led to a Minnesota touchdown. Hill rolled right and threw a floater off his back foot while under pressure. A rookie mistake by the veteran led to an interception and really ended the game early. A calf injury was the reason given for Hill exciting the game at halftime, and he never saw the field in the 2nd half. If you for some reason desire having a St. Louis QB on your team, follow the news closely over the next few days to see if the injury is minor. For now, it's likely Hill will be back in there next Sunday.

Our 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.
