Kenny Britt caught five passes for 69 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to Dallas.

He had seven targets, behind only Jared Cook. Britt briefly exited with a shoulder issue, but was able to return. This could go down as one of his better games of the season, as the Rams were facing an injury-filled Cowboys defense. Britt can continue to go unrostered in fantasy leagues.
Sep 21 - 6:35 PM

Jared Cook had seven catches for 75 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to Dallas.

Cook had a team-high nine targets and remains the clear No. 2 option behind Brian Quick. He dropped a wide open touchdown in the fourth quarter that likely cost the Rams the game. Cook has been more consistent this season, but remains a middling TE2. He isn't a must-hold with St. Louis on a bye in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 6:31 PM

Brian Quick had two catches for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Cowboys.

Quick got behind Morris Claiborne for a 51-yard touchdown in the second quarter. It was his only notable play of the game, but he continues to show well as the clear No. 1 option in the offense. Quick has at least 60 yards or a touchdown in all three games this season. He'll be a strong WR3 when the Rams come out of their bye in Week 5.
Sep 21 - 6:10 PM

Benny Cunningham had nine carries for 29 yards in Week 3 against the Cowboys.

He added one catch for five yards. Cunningham saw fewer carries than Zac Stacy, and lost snaps to Trey Watts this week. He remains the preferred option on pass downs, but has no real standalone value and is strictly a handcuff. Cunningham can be dropped for higher upside options.

Zac Stacy - RB - Rams

Zac Stacy rushed 12 times for 67 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Cowboys.

Stacy did most of his damage in the first quarter, and continued to lose snaps to Benny Cunningham on passing downs. The Rams went with a three-back committee this week, with Trey Watts also getting five carries as a change-of-pace. Stacy added five catches for 54 yards on six targets, giving him over 100 total yards for the first time this season. He remains the Rams' lead back and favorite for goal-line work. St. Louis is on a bye in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 5:53 PM

Austin Davis completed 30-of-42 passes for 327 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Cowboys.

Davis got the Rams out to a three-score lead before throwing two interceptions in the second half -- including a pick-six to Cowboys LB Bruce Carter. He connected with Brian Quick for a 51-yard strike against blown coverage, with his other two touchdowns coming on short throws inside the red-zone. Davis took advantage of a matchup with a Cowboys defense that was playing without two of its starting linebackers. He'll remain the Rams starter coming out of their Week 4 bye.

Shaun Hill was working with the first-team offense in pre-game warmups.

The expectation is that Austin Davis will get the start after taking the vast majority of first-team snaps in practice this week, but coach Jeff Fisher is keeping this thing under wraps as long as possible. Neither Hill nor Davis should be in fantasy lineups outside of deeper two-quarterback leagues. It's going to be the Zac Stacy show on offense for the Rams, with Hill or Davis "game-managing."
Sep 21 - 12:38 PM

Shaun Hill (thigh) is active for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

The Rams don't plan to announce their starter until game-time. Austin Davis is expected to start.
Sep 21 - 11:50 AM

Tavon Austin (knee) is inactive for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

Austin practiced on a limited basis Friday and will be held out until after the Rams' Week 4 bye. Stedman Bailey should see time in three-wide sets. Also inactive for St. Louis are RB Tre Mason, QB Case Keenum, CB Trumaine Johnson, S Maurice Alexander, CB Brandon McGee, and C/G Barrett Jones.
Sep 21 - 11:46 AM

Tavon Austin (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

Despite practicing on a limited basis Friday, Austin remains unlikely to play through his MCL sprain. Stedman Bailey should see time in the slot.
Sep 19 - 4:33 PM

Shaun Hill (thigh) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday, as well. Although coach Jeff Fisher has deemed Hill the Rams' starter when healthy, the expectation is that Austin Davis gets the first-string nod this week versus Dallas.
Sep 19 - 2:40 PM

Shaun Hill (thigh) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

He did a "little more," however. Speaking afterward, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said his Week 3 quarterback decision between Hill and Austin Davis could come down to a game-time decision, but we'd ultimately be very surprised if Davis didn't get the call. He was effective in Week 2, and the Rams likely want to see if he can run with the starting job.
Sep 18 - 7:40 PM

Shaun Hill (thigh) was limited Wednesday.

Hill remains day-to-day. Austin Davis took the bulk of the starter's reps at Wednesday's practice and is in line to start Week 3 at home against the Cowboys.
Sep 17 - 5:20 PM

Tavon Austin (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Austin got his knee rolled up awkwardly against the Bucs last week. It had the looks of a potentially-serious injury, but the Rams are calling it a sprained MCL. He's unlikely to play this week. Stedman Bailey could man the slot.
Sep 17 - 4:39 PM

The St. Louis Post Dispatch's Jim Thomas reports Austin Davis got the "lion's share" of the Rams' first-team quarterback reps at Wednesday's practice.

Shaun Hill (thigh) participated in individual drills and remains day-to-day. Case Keenum received a couple of reps with the starters in 11-on-11 drills. But Austin Davis is the clear favorite to start against the Cowboys after leading the Rams to a 19-17 win over the Bucs last Sunday. The Rams will pound the ball on the ground and let Davis "manage" the game with short passes. He's a low-end QB2/3.
