Quick has agreed to terms on a contract with the Redskins, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Selected 33rd overall in the 2012 draft, Quick finally started living up to the Rams' expectations early in the 2014 campaign, only to suffer a severe shoulder injury after seven games. He struggled to bounce back from the injury and caught just 10 passes the following year, but he did re-emerge as a modest contributor last season, hauling in 41 of 79 targets for 564 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games. While Jamison Crowder and fellow free-agent signee Terrelle Pryor are locked in as key pieces in the Washington offense, Quick could get a chance to push 2016 first-rounder Josh Doctson (Achilles) for a spot in three-wide sets. The Redskins hope Doctson will bounce back from a lost rookie season and earn a leading role, but the 27-year-old Quick provides some form of insurance if that doesn't happen. The most likely scenario has Quick serving as the No. 4 wideout, providing an occasional big-play threat on limited snaps.
Quick caught just two of his seven targets for 15 yards and failed to find the end zone for the 12 consecutive game Sunday against Arizona. The 27-year-old receiver had a respectable five-game run (16 receptions for 326 yards and three touchdowns) leading into the Rams' Week 9 bye, but he faded considerably down the stretch, and especially after Jared Goff was named the starter. Through Goff's seven starts, Quick had just 15 receptions for 143 yards and failed to find pay dirt. After Los Angeles drafted two wide receivers in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Rams might let Quick walk via free agency, so his fantasy value is in limbo until he inks a new deal.
Quick received four targets but failed to secure a reception during Saturday's loss to San Francisco. Through six games with Jared Goff running the offense, Quick has just 13 receptions for 128 yards and no touchdowns. Additionally, the receiver has caught just 46.4 percent of his targets during the stretch. It's likely best to ignore Quick in the majority of fantasy settings for the Week 17 matchup against Arizona.
Quick (shoulder) secured three of five targets for 46 yards in Thursday's 24-3 loss to the Seahawks. Quick was able to add to his production with a couple of second-half receptions, and also nearly hauled in a short touchdown from Jared Goff in the first half on a pass that was just a bit behind him. The fifth-year receiver bounced back from a one-reception, 10-yard performance against the Falcons in a Week 14 blowout loss, but his upside, like that of his fellow wideouts, remains capped by the Rams' quarterback situation.
Quick (shoulder) will be available for Thursday's game against the Seahawks. Quick did not participate in practice following Sunday's loss to the Falcons until resuming full participation during Wednesday's session. There shouldn't be any unusual limitations for Quick in Week 15, though Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin remain as the top two options on the Rams' depth chart at wide receiver.
