NFL suspended Rams WR Stedman Bailey four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Rams have known of Bailey's impending ban for "several months." It's despite that fact that they opted not to draft a single receiver. A third-round pick last season, Bailey started two of the Rams' final four games, finishing his rookie year with a 17/226/0 line. Bailey had an outside chance at earning a starting job in training camp, but will now be behind the eight ball when he returns in Week 6. Receiver remains a trouble spot for a team that's struggled to find talented wideouts for Sam Bradford. May 12 - 3:57 PM

Stedman Bailey caught four passes for 33 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.

An impressive third-round pick out of West Virginia, Bailey was a special teams stud early in the year before earning significant stretch-run snaps on offense at Austin Pettis' expense. Bailey's rookie season ends with 17 catches for 226 yards. Bailey runs solid routes and has sticky hands. He will be a candidate for a second-year leap in St. Louis if he can win a starting job out of training camp.

Rams rookie WR Stedman Bailey played a season-high 40 snaps in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Bucs.

Only Chris Givens played more. Bailey racked up three catches for 44 yards and scored his first career NFL touchdown on a 27-yard double reverse. The 92nd pick in last April's draft, Bailey will likely be in the mix to start for the Rams in 2014, along with Givens, Tavon Austin, and Brian Quick.

Stedman Bailey caught three passes for 44 yards in St. Louis' Week 16 win over the Bucs, adding a 27-yard rushing touchdown.

Playing the Tavon Austin role in Austin's absence, Bailey's score came on a double reverse. Bailey got the edge and was off to the house for an easy touchdown. A legit playmaker earning more snaps every week, Bailey will be a deep sleeper in 2014 fantasy leagues.

Stedman Bailey caught two passes for 26 yards in Week 15 versus New Orleans.

Bailey and Austin Pettis tied for the team lead with four targets. The rookie out of West Virginia has seen his playing time rise over the past month. His biggest contribution Sunday was recovering a surprise onside kick early in the game. Bailey is going to be a guy to watch over the offseason and next summer, but he’s not a fantasy option right now.

Rams WR Stedman Bailey played on a season-high 52 percent of the snaps in Sunday's loss at Arizona.

Bailey's role continues to grow as the Rams enter full-blown evaluation mode. The third-round rookie has produced six catches for 92 yards over the last two weeks, gaining snaps at the expense of Austin Pettis. Bailey is a deep Dynasty stash as he won't be playing with Kellen Clemens in 2014.

Stedman Bailey caught three passes for 46 yards in Week 14 at Arizona.

One week after playing a season-high 22 offensive snaps, Bailey drew the start opposite Chris Givens. As ESPN Rams blogger Nick Wagoner mentioned during the game, it's clear that Bailey has the most reliable hands on the team and is arguably the best route runner. The rookie will continue to see increased snaps over the final three weeks. Bailey does his work in the intermediate passing game.

Rams rookie WR Stedman Bailey played a season-high 22 offensive snaps in Sunday's Week 13 loss to the 49ers.

The third-rounder was involved on offense for much of the day, so he wasn't just limited to garbage time. Bailey was targeted four times on the day, turning them into three catches for 46 yards. He also took an offensive pass interference penalty. With the Rams' playoff hopes now extremely slim, Bailey could see even more snaps over the final month. He has vice-like, reliable hands.

Rams rookie WR Stedman Bailey played a season-high 11 offensive snaps in Sunday's Week 9 loss to Tennessee.

This is third-rounder Bailey's first Rotoworld blurb since August 12, which tells you all you need to know about his offensive participation to this point. He chipped in a pair of special teams tackles against the Titans, and remains behind Chris Givens, Austin Pettis, Brian Quick, and Tavon Austin at wideout.

Rams third-round WR Stedman Bailey has been putting together a "long line" of strong practices over the past couple of weeks.

Bailey has reportedly "essentially been perfect" in one-on-one drills and continues to "catch everything thrown his way" in team drills as he's been "having his way" with the Rams' backup corners. He hasn't seen many -- if any -- reps with the first-team offense this summer, but the Rams might need to give him a look. Austin Pettis showed nothing in the preseason opener -- his lone target resulted in a drop, while Brian Quick has seen his ups and downs. Bailey has strong, reliable hands, and he's nails in the red zone despite his smaller frame.

Rookie Stedman Bailey will open preseason games as the Rams' No. 5 receiver.

He's behind Chris Givens, Austin Pettis, Tavon Austin, and Brian Quick. Per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Bailey "has good hands but needs to do a better job tracking the deep ball." The third-rounder isn't on the re-draft fantasy radar.
Mon, Aug 5, 2013 01:35:00 AM

Rams signed third-round WR Stedman Bailey to a four-year contract.

Bailey (5-foot-10 1/4, 193) caught 186 passes for 2,901 yards and 37 touchdowns over his final two seasons at West Virginia as Geno Smith's go-to receiver. He plays bigger than his measurables indicate, but slow-ish forty times of 4.50 and 4.57 at the Combine likely kept him on the board until No. 92 overall.

The Rams envision third-round WR Stedman Bailey as their replacement for Brandon Gibson.

Gibson had been a starter in recent years, but the Rams never viewed him as more than a No. 3 or No. 4 wideout. Bailey will compete for fourth receiver duties as a rookie, behind Brian Quick, Tavon Austin, and Chris Givens. He can also returns kicks and punts. Bailey is unlikely to be a fantasy factor in 2013.

Rams selected West Virginia WR Stedman Bailey with the No. 92 overall pick.

Bailey (5-foot-10 1/4, 193) outproduced more ballyhooed teammate Tavon Austin in the West Virginia passing game, tallying 186 receptions for 2,901 yards (15.6 YPR) and 37 touchdowns over his final two seasons. 72 of Bailey's 148 targets went for a first down or touchdown in 2012, the highest rate among draft-eligible receivers. Bailey atones for his smallish stature and mediocre speed (4.52 forty) with technically sound routes and red-zone instincts. He was Geno Smith's go-to receiver in scoring position. The two Mountaineer receivers complement each other well. The Rams' receiving group is one of the youngest in the league.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports West Virginia WR Stedman Bailey is drawing interest from the Panthers, Bucs and Eagles.

Per Pauline, the Rams and Texans had also been eyeing Bailey before using their first-round picks on receivers. Bailey generated little media buzz in April, but has excellent tape to fall back on. Bailey's size (5-10, 193) and an underwhelming Combine are what's holding him back. He should come off the board before day two is through.
