Tavon Austin caught 2-of-4 targets for 14 yards in the Rams' Week 15 loss to the Cardinals, adding an eight-yard rush.

Austin's three touches were his fewest in five games. Austin has made minor strides this season, but still doesn't bust nearly enough big plays, particularly on offense. He's an end-of-bench type in dynasty leagues.
Dec 12 - 12:22 AM

Benny Cunningham caught 3-of-4 targets for 23 yards in the Rams' Week 15 loss to the Cardinals, adding two rushes for four yards.

A fairly-standard day at the office for Cunningham. Rarely surpassing 5-6 touches, Cunningham won't be on the RB4 radar for Week 16 against the Giants.
Dec 12 - 12:20 AM

Jared Cook caught 3-of-7 targets for 22 yards in the Rams' Week 15 loss to the Cardinals.

It was a brutally-ineffective game from Cook, who committed an offensive pass interference penalty, and somehow outran Shaun Hill's desperation heave with time expiring by at least 15 yards. A mistake-prone player who rarely stuffs the stat sheet, Cook isn't worth the $7 million he's due in 2015. It's possible he'll be cut loose.
Dec 12 - 12:16 AM

Stedman Bailey caught 5-of-8 targets for 74 yards in the Rams' Week 15 loss to the Cardinals.

It was a nice rebound from Bailey's no-show Week 14, but his most-important catch was one he didn't make. With 1:28 remaining, Shaun Hill threw a high pass on 3rd-and-3, but Bailey should have corralled it. The Rams turned it over on downs one play later. Bailey has earned himself a role for 2015, but he won't be on the WR3 radar against the Giants in Week 16.
Dec 12 - 12:13 AM

Kenny Britt caught 5-of-9 targets for 65 yards in the Rams' Week 15 loss to the Cardinals.

Britt's most-impressive grab came with just 2:28 remaining, as he went up between two defenders to make a contested 22-yard catch, taking some major punishment in the process. Britt's numbers don't jump off the page (35/607/3), but he's looked better as the season's worn on. He's definitely proven he still belongs in the NFL. Still only 26, Britt is headed for free agency.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed 13 times for 33 yards in the Rams' Week 15 loss to the Cardinals, also losing a fumble.

He was held without a catch on one target in the passing game. More than once, Mason was inches away from busting a big run, but the Cardinals' sound defense kept wrapping him up before he could break free. His fumble was soft, and directly led to the Cardinals' first of four field goals. It's still baffling Mason received only 13 carries in a game that was a slugfest from the opening whistle. Mason will remain on the RB2 radar for an appetizing Week 16 matchup with the Giants.
Dec 11 - 11:51 PM

Shaun Hill completed 20-of-39 passes for 229 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in St. Louis' 12-6, Week 15 loss to the Cardinals.

Hill's pick came on a hail mary as time expired. Hill wasn't quite as bad as the numbers indicate, but started the second half off with five straight 3-and-outs. He finally got the offense moving in the fourth quarter, but the Rams' best drive of the evening stalled at the Cardinals' one-yard line. Hill isn't afraid to attempt stick 'em throws into tight spaces, but has a severe lack of arm strength beyond the 15-20 yard range. The Rams need to do better at their No. 2 spot if they stick with the brittle Sam Bradford for 2015.
Dec 11 - 11:48 PM

Rams LE Chris Long (ankle) is active for Week 15 against the Cardinals.

Long's status was in a bit of early week doubt with the short turnaround from Sunday's win over the Redskins, but he's ready to bookend Robert Quinn. Inactive for the Rams are CB Lamarcus Joyner, CB Marcus Roberson, TE Justice Cunningham, OG Brandon Washington, TE Alex Bayer, DT Alex Carrington and DE Ethan Westbrooks.
Dec 11 - 6:58 PM

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports Rams brass wants Sam Bradford back with the team in 2015.

We've been getting the same sense lately, especially with the Rams winning games and pushing themselves further down the draft board and out of range to select an elite quarterback prospect like Marcus Mariota. Bradford has one year left on his deal and is set to count $16.6 million against the 2015 cap. But the Rams will want to re-work that, and Bradford will likely be open to a restructure after blowing out his ACL in back-to-back seasons. Both coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead have come out recently and thrown support behind Bradford.
Dec 11 - 11:24 AM

Tavon Austin managed 46 yards on five carries and caught two passes for 14 yards in the Rams' Week 14 win over the Redskins.

Austin legitimately looked like the best player on the field in this one. He was dynamic as a punt returner, bringing back four punts for 143 yards, including a 78-yard touchdown. The Rams just may be figuring out how to use the former first-round pick, though we don't expect him to carry much fantasy weight.
Dec 7 - 5:39 PM

Stedman Bailey caught two passes for 47 yards in the Rams' Week 14 win over the Redskins.

He was targeted just the two times. Many were on the Bailey bandwagon after his first-quarter explosion against the Raiders last week, but the Rams' offense can only support one pass catcher. That was Jared Cook on Sunday. Bailey was stopped at the one-yard line on a 36-yard catch-and-run before Cook caught a touchdown on the next play. Bailey is more of a WR4/5. He'll do work against Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie in Week 15.
Dec 7 - 5:35 PM

Kenny Britt caught two passes for 52 yards in the Rams' Week 14 win over the Redskins.

Britt and Jared Cook each saw a team-high five targets. Last week it was Stedman Bailey making the impact at receiver. This week it was Britt's turn. He got loose behind CB Bashaud Breeland for a 41-yard catch on a Shaun Hill rollout. It may have gone for a touchdown had Hill put more air under it. The St. Louis offense can only support one pass catcher. Britt remains a WR4/5.
Dec 7 - 5:15 PM

Jared Cook caught four passes for 61 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' Week 14 win over the Redskins.

He was targeted a team-high five times. Cook briefly exited the game in the first quarter after taking a head shot from FS Ryan Clark. He quickly returned and was left wide open on both scores, a 35-yarder up the seam and a one-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone. Cook has become a solid all-around player in 2014, but he's an inconsistent pass catcher. Cook is hard to justify as anything more than a TE2. He'll get the Cardinals at home in Week 15.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed 20 times for 66 yards in the Rams' Week 14 win over the Redskins.

Those chasing last week's points were sorely disappointed. Mason didn't catch either of his two targets and was bottled up by the Redskins all afternoon. He continues to dominate touches in the Rams' backfield. Mason will be a mid-to-low RB2 at home on Thursday night against the Cardinals.
Dec 7 - 4:44 PM

Shaun Hill completed 16-of-22 passes for 213 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Rams' 24-0, Week 14 win over the Redskins.

The Rams coasted to this victory, and it would have been worse had K Greg Zuerlein not missed an extra point, 28-yard field goal, and 38-yard field goal. Hill, in typical game manager fashion, found his open receivers for easy gains. Nothing came easier than his two touchdown passes, both of which went to Jared Cook. Cook ran free down the seam for a 35-yard score before he was left wide open in the end zone for a one-yard score in the third quarter. The biggest thing from Hill is he's not turning the ball over. He won't be a recommended play on Thursday night against Arizona.
