| Rams lose Brian Quick for rest of season|
Torn rotator cuff; team also loses LT Jake Long with ACL
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 27, 2:10 pm
|The St. Louis Rams Monday morning that LT Jake Long will miss the rest of the season after tearing his right ACL Sunday and will likely lose WR Brian Quick to a dislocated shoulder and torn rotator cuff.
Long’s injury is the same one, to the same knee, that ended his 2013 season. He is the second Rams player to re-tear an ACL; quarterback Sam Bradford did the same thing. (Washington Post)|
FFToday's Take: The Rams have been one of the most snake-bitten teams in recent years in regards to injuries. Kenny Britt will most likely take over lead-receiver duties and Stedman Bailey will probably join him as the other starting receiver, although Jared Cook has been Austin Davis' favorite target for most of the year. No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson will most likely slide over from left guard to play his college position in order to replace Long.
|Britt making strong impression with Rams|
Quick, Bailey also standing out

|There is no shortage of receivers making plays all over the field at camp, including several with great size. Kenny Britt has people around the team pinching themselves with what he is doing on the field and off, and there is a very strong buzz around third-year receiver Brian Quick and second-year receiver Stedman Bailey. If a few of them can keep it up, this offense has the potential to make significant strides.
"A few of them really look like they are for real," said one member of the organization. "If they are, then that's a major game-changer." (CBS Sports)|
FFToday's Take: Once again, Britt is worth gambling on in fantasy, although his 14th-round ADP is much more palatable than it has been in recent years. Quick has been long on potential since getting drafted in 2012 and his size-speed combination makes him intriguing if he can lock down a starting spot. Bailey will miss the first four games of the season due to suspension, but could enjoy some fantasy value late in the second half if Britt or Quick fails to impress or get injured.
