Rams acquire No.1 pick from Titans-- Thu Apr 14 10:34 am --
Rams in position to get their QB of choice
The Tennessee Titans have traded the No. 1 pick in the draft to the Los Angeles Rams in a blockbuster trade.
Tennessee will send the top selection along with its fourth- (No. 113) and sixth-round (No. 177) picks this year to the Rams in exchange for Los Angeles' first-round pick (No. 15), two second-round selections (Nos. 43 and 45) and a third-round pick (No. 76) in 2016. The Titans also will get the Rams' first- and third-round picks in 2017.
FF Today's Take:The Titans received a haul of draft picks including two second round picks this year and a first next year. With Case Keenum penciled in as the current "starter" the Rams are now in position to take a quarterback, with Jared Goff or Carson Wentz the likely targets. The NFL Draft is two weeks away.

Foles to be high-priced backup
G.M. Les Snead, appearing Monday on NFL Network, said that Case Keenum will be the starting quarterback “at the beginning of the season.” It also creates a potentially awkward situation in the quarterback room, where Keenum will make roughly $3 million in 2016 and backup Nick Foles will make more than $12 million.(ProFootballTalk)
FF Today's Take:Interesting comment from the Rams GM but it's still early in the off-season and much can happen before early September. Foles and perhaps a quarterback drafted in the first round (15th pick) could also be the Week 1 starter. In any case, the starting quarterback for the Rams can be avoided by fantasy owners.
