Rams WR Brian Quick is showing out in OTAs

The Rams' offense is basically one big fantasy sleeper this year. Sam Bradford, Jared Cook, Tavon Austin, Chris Givens, someone out of that three-headed mess at running back; they all could provide solid value in drafts. But maybe we shouldn't forget about second-year wide receiver Brian Quick @WORKAHOLIC_BQ, who, according to Tony Softli of 101 ESPN Radio in St. Louis, has been turning heads during recent practices.
"It was almost like a continuation from yesterday; Brian Quick just showed out [Friday]," Softli said. "He was putting on a show. He had one drop early and then he caught like 17, 18 passes all over the field -- red zone, middle of the field, crossing routes, deep down outside, thrown by Sam Bradford. He just put on a show."
Quick was the 33rd overall pick in last year's draft, but he caught just 11 passes in his rookie season. Quick told Softli that he is more confident this year and feels like he finally knows what he is doing out on the field.

Fantasy Analysis:

Quick is going to be drafted as a fantasy reserve, but he is a smart pick late in your draft as he has lots of potential. He is almost 6-foot-4 and can run a 4.5-40. He could be a very reliable target for Bradford in the intermediate ranges while Givens opens up the field deep, and Austin is causing havoc from a number of spots. I don't really favor one Rams wide receiver much over another -- I know Austin is being drafted first among them -- but that is one talented group that should help Bradford reach new heights this year. Even in a year where quarterback is unbelievably deep, Bradford should be a popular QB2. I do favor him.
