Bailey has been suspended four games for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. With Bailey -- who has recorded 12 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown in eight game to date -- set to miss time, it's now understandable that the Rams are expected to work out wideouts Hakeem Nicks, Wes Welker and Vincent Brown, per ESPN's Adam Caplan.
Bailey was held off the stat sheet on Sunday as the Rams defeated the 49ers 27-6. Bailey has all but disappeared since the bye week, with one catch for eight yards in two games. He's had more than one catch in only three of six games and is not even getting looks his way lately.
Bailey caught his lone target for 8 yards in a 24-6 win against the Browns on Sunday. Bailey had had a couple better games as of late, but that didn't carry over to Sunday. This was the third time in five games he's tallied one or less receptions, and Bailey's potential isn't enough to make him too much of a fantasy option right now.
Bailey caught three of his five targets for a team-high 73 receiving yards in Sunday's game against the Packers. The third-year wideout registered a season-high in yardage and catches, but he was not heavily targeted, as the Rams employed a run-heavy approach for much of the game. Bailey has emerged as a factor in the St. Louis passing game, but his inconsistent usage really hampers his usability in fantasy terms. The Rams are on bye in Week 6 and will host the Browns the following week.
Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey caught a pair of passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in the victory over Arizona on Sunday. The touchdown was only the second of hiss career, but it was a nice bounce-back after not even being targeted last week. Bailey has had a pair of decent games, combining for seven catches for 88 yards and a score in Weeks 1 and 4, but had one catch for zero yards in the other games. He just doesn't produce consistently enough to warrant Fantasy attention.
