WR Brian Quick - Los Angeles Rams
|6-4, 220||Born: 6-5-1989||College: Appalachian State||Drafted: Round 2|
Week 13: at New England Patriots
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Jared Goff scored more points at New Orleans (his second NFL start), with 20/32 for 214 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown (with three sacks taken for -36 yards). Not bad, in comparison to 17/31 for 134 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, and one sack taken for -9 yards vs. Miami two games ago. He found all three of his favorite receivers for TDs, with 10 targets for 5/52/1 receiving going to Kenny Britt; seven for 4/51/1 flowing to Lance Kendricks, and four for 4/45/1 landing in Tavon Austin's very expensive hands - only Todd Gurley (four for 4/39/0) missed out on the bonanza of TDs for Goff's favorite targets. We'll see if Goff can build on his solid effort this week in the hostile environment of Gillette Stadium. Speaking of New England's home - the Patriots average 253.6 net passing yards allowed per game this season (18th in the NFL) with 16 passing scores given out vs. just five interceptions (tied for 28th in the NFL) and 22 sacks (tied for 20th) generated to date. From Week Nine to Week 12 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), New England has averaged 24.4 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (eighth-most in the NFL); and 25.9 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (ninth-most); with 7.3 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (13th-least). Last week Ryan Fitzpatrick managed 22/32 for 269 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with one sack taken for zero yards vs. the Patriots. Goff is a beginner at this level, but the Patriots haven't been great in this phase of the game - this is still a tough matchup for the Rams.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 11 vs MIA (5 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Quick was targeted 5 times in this one but again suffered the same fate as the rest of the Rams' receivers. Until Goff is willing to push the ball down the field, there will be little success for Quick and the rest of the receivers. The only play of note was a 9-yard reception to start the second quarter where the Rams challenged to spot to try and gain a first down. The play was upheld on the field and the Rams had to punt. Quick hopes to find more room to run against the Saints next week.
2016 Week 10 vs NYJ (4 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Quick fell victim to the same inaccurate throws as Tavon Austin. The speedy receiver could not get any separation off the line and was mostly a non-factor in this one. A favorable matchup against a struggling Jets defense should have brought about better results, but without consistent quarterback play, Quick is not going to make much of an impact.
2016 Week 9 vs CAR (6 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec)
Quick fared about the same as the rest of the receivers today and could not find any room to run. He had one big strike with a 27-yard pass, but was unable to find the end zone, or keep drives going on third down. The entire offense looked sluggish and slow today and Quick was unable to get them going.
2016 Week 7 vs NYG (9 / 4 / 92 / 0 rec)
Brian Quick continues to be the deep threat on this Rams offense as he connected with Keenum on a 48-yard pass where there was some miscommunication between the corner and the safety which left Quick wide open. Quick was also able to convert a key fourth down late in the game as the team was attempting to come back as he caught the ball over the middle while taking a big hit. Quick had a season-high nine targets in this game which shows that the team is committed to trying to get him the ball as he has now had 5+ targets in three of his last four games. He is still heavily dependent on the deep ball, but he is starting to build consistency as he has gone over 50 yards in each of his last five games.
2016 Week 6 vs DET (5 / 5 / 61 / 0 rec)
Quick brought in all 5 of his targets for 61 yards today but was held out of the end zone. Quick has had 4 straight games with 50+ yards and is quietly putting together a productive season. With Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin getting the majority of the looks, Quick will have his chances to make an impact. Quick continues to be a nice third option for the Rams and can make the big play as he has three catches over 30 yards so far this season and is averaging 16.6 yards per catch.
2016 Week 5 vs BUF (4 / 3 / 51 / 0 rec)
Quick was targeted 4 times and brought in 3 passes for 51 yards today. Quick has shown over the last few weeks that he is a deep threat each and every play as was shown with a 31-yard reception where he caught the ball over the middle ducked under a defender and ran for an additional ten yards. Quick is showing some consistency as a third wide receiver for this Rams team as that is his third week in a row with 50+ receiving yards. While he was unable to find the end zone this week, he should continue to see targets deep and can be used as a boom or bust type play.
2016 Week 4 vs ARI (6 / 2 / 69 / 2 rec)
Brian Quick for the second straight week is the home run threat for Case Keenum. Quick was able to turn a hitch route into a 65-yard touchdown after two defenders missed on the play. Quick also added another touchdown on a back shoulder fade with just a few minutes left to go which ended up being the game-winner for the Rams. Quick is going to be a boom/bust guy going forward, and he dropped a critical 15 yard route in which he extended the route too much and had to dive for a ball he should have caught rather easily which he would have been able to turn up the field for additional yards which would have put him close to the 100 yard mark for the day.
2016 Week 3 vs TB (2 / 2 / 53 / 1 rec)
Case Keenum was able to connect with Brian Quick on a deep 44 yard touchdown pass that he was able to use his speed to run past the corner on a post route on an easy throw from Case Keenum for the touchdown. Quick has always had the size and speed, but the former second round pick has not been able to put it all together for the Rams. Quick only has eight targets on the year, so he is likely going to be used sparingly in this run heavy offense, but if there is an injury to Kenny Britt he is going to be someone to keep an eye on.
