Rams' offense planning to be 'high octane' this season

Hold on, Browns. You have company in the field of young offenses looking to light up the scoreboard. Here's what Nick Wagoner of the Rams' official website wrote following Friday's OTA:
"It's clear from watching that the Rams intend to be more high octane offensively. [Sam] Bradford discussed that possibility yesterday and it seemed it was very likely given the weapons that were added during the offseason."

Fantasy Analysis:

Those additions are headed by big-money tight end Jared Cook @JaredCook89 and first-round wide receiver Tavon Austin @Tayaustin01. But this offense also contains deep threat Chris Givens @CG1three, hyper-productive third-round rookie Stedman Bailey, and Brian Quick @WORKAHOLIC_BQ, a 2012 second-round pick who is expected to make a big jump after a very poor first season. There is a lot of athleticism and talent in that group; a high-scoring offense is possible. It will come down to Bradford, obviously. He had his best statistical season as a pro last year, but he fell short of 60 in completion percentage, averaged 6.7 yards per throw and tallied just 21 touchdowns. If these young receivers grow up quickly and Bradford stays healthy in his fourth year, a truly big year could be in the works.
