Brian Quick caught 4-of-9 targets for 92 yards Week 7 against the Giants.
Quick made a couple big plays, going for 48 yards on a double move in the first half and converting a fourth down on the final drive of the game. Unfortunately, Quick miscommunicated with Case Keenum with the Rams driving for a tie, leading to Keenum's fourth and final interception in the end zone. Coach Jeff Fisher seemed blame Quick after the game for the miscue. Despite the final play, Quick tied for second on the team with nine targets and once again looked good. He will be worth a dart throw in deep leagues against the Panthers after the bye.
Tavon Austin caught 10-of-15 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 7 loss to the Giants in London.
He added one carry for 10 yards. Austin got the day started right with a 10-yard touchdown in the first quarter and contributed a longish punt return, but he did next to nothing with his other 14 targets, fumbled twice (both recovered), and was responsible for Case Keenum's pick six. He was also the target on two other interceptions, but neither was his fault. The Rams keep feeding Austin targets, but he is not doing much with them. He will be a weak PPR play when he faces the Panthers after the bye.
Kenny Britt caught 3-of-8 targets for 43 yards Week 7 against the Giants.
Coming off his best game of the season, Britt, of course, put together one of his worst games of the season. Britt was a non-factor in the first half, and he struggled to make an impact on six targets after the break. He slowed up on what should have been a long touchdown, although Case Keenum likely would have overthrown him anyway, and he had a long gain called back on a holding penalty. To add injury to insult, Britt left late in the game after coming down hard on his shoulder. His status will be worth watching over the bye with the Panthers' terrible secondary on deck Week 9. He will once again be a solid WR3 if he plays against Carolina.
FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Jamaal Charles underwent MRIs on both of his knees this week and both knees are "sore."
Shout out to ex-Rotoworlder Adam Levitan for passing along this report via Twitter. Charles is active on Sunday, but it's hard to imagine him doing much, and it's even possible he could play behind Charcandrick West in addition to Spencer Ware while dealing with injuries to both knees. Charles is an extremely low-floor flex option. Ware is an exciting RB1 play against the Saints.
Todd Gurley rushed 15 times for 57 yards and caught 6-of-7 targets for 35 yards Week 7 against the Giants.
In what has become a too familiar story for Gurley owners, the running back was heavily involved in the offense and racked up a reasonable yardage total, but he failed to break a big run and did not get any real shots at a touchdown. His best play of the game was a 20-yard catch in which he broke a tackle and made a nice move on the sideline to pick up extra yards. Unless the Rams magically figure out the running game over the bye, Gurley will be at best a back-end RB1 against the Panthers Week 9.
Eli Manning completed 24-of-37 passes for 196 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Giants' Week 7 win over the Rams in London.
Even with the Rams tackling well underneath, Manning was hesitant to push the ball downfield, and the Giants could not put together enough short gains to create anything resembling a drive most of the game. Victor Cruz managed to escape a tackle for a big gain on a field goal drive, and a Case Keenum interception gave the offense a short field on the touchdown. Other than that, there was not much happening for an offense which looks to be in disarray. Perhaps coach Ben McAdoo can figure something out over the bye, but Eli will not be a viable starter against the Eagles Week 9.
Case Keenum completed 32-of-53 passes for 291 yards, a touchdown, and four interceptions in the Rams' Week 7 loss to the Giants in London.
Keenum started the game strong, completing nine of his first 10 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown strike to Tavon Austin. The wheels fell off after the first quarter, however. He was intercepted four times in the final three quarters including a pick-six which got the Giants back into the game and three times on the final three drives. He also missed Kenny Britt on what should have been a long touchdown, and he walked into a couple sacks. To be fair to Keenum, the pick-six bounced right off Austin’s helmet, Britt slowed down on the deep miss, and his receivers dropped several passes. Keenum did put together what look like a game-tying drive, but a miscommunication with Brian Quick led to his fourth and final pick. Despite the poor performance, the Rams have shown no signs of handing the reins to rookie Jared Goff, and Jeff Fisher said after they game they are "staying with Case." Keenum should emerge from the bye as the starter.
After watching LeSean McCoy (hamstring) in pre-game warmups, ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak observed that McCoy "does not look close to 100 percent when cutting and exploding."
Rodak proceeded to note that McCoy took a pre-game handoff all the way to the house as opposed to stopping, drawing roars from fans paying attention to warmups. This is a tricky situation and we'd be lying if we pretended to know how it will play out. McCoy is best viewed as a boom-bust Week 7 fantasy start. His tough-to-predict usage and performance will affect Mike Gillislee's workload.
