    Rams WR Stedman Bailey tallies touchdown in Week 4 win

    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.

    Rams get offensive contributions

    Several Rams contributed in their Week 16 loss to the Giants. Among them, wideout Chris Givens caught his only target for a 47-yard touchdown and receiver Stedman Bailey secured two of five targets for 22 yards. Wideout Tavon Austin ran three times for 25 yards and had a 15-yard reception. Backup running back Benny Cunningham ran once for minus-1 yard and caught two passes for 19 yards. Tight end Cory Harkey made a 1-yard catch. They'll all finish the season at Seattle.

    Rams WR Stedman Bailey leads the way Week 15

    Rams wideout Stedman Bailey led the team in receiving Week 15 against the Cardinals. Bailey was really the only standout on the Rams' offense. He hauled in five passes for 74 yards. Bailey received eight targets, finishing second on the team in the category. A large portion of his yardage came on a 38 yard deep pass in the fourth quarter. Bailey also gained 13 rushing yards on one attempt. Bailey will look for more Week 16 against the Giants.

    Stedman Bailey deserves a pass

    What a letdown for Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey Week 14 at Washington. Shaun Hill has his biggest game yet at quarterback, and his supposed favorite target was barely even a part of it, getting just two balls thrown his way. Of course, he caught both of them for 47 yards, so he wasn't a complete embarrassment. And nobody got more than five targets for the Rams. As productive as Bailey was in Weeks 12 and 13, he deserves a pass for this one in leagues where teams start three wide receivers. For other major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.

    Stedman Bailey, Kenny Britt take back seat Week 14

    Rams starting wideouts Stedman Bailey and Kenny Britt took a back seat Week 14 as the team needed only 22 passes to beat the lowly Redskins. Britt caught two of five targets for 52 yards, while Bailey hauled in both his targets for 47 yards. They'll face the Cardinals on Thursday night.

    Time to put your faith in Stedman Bailey

    Even though he has averaged 94.5 receiving yards with a touchdown the last two weeks, Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey still isn't a favorite of Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard, who rank him outside their top 30 at wide receiver for Week 14. But I'm all about starting him at Washington. For all the Redskins' struggles this season, they've fared well against the run, giving teams extra incentive to throw the ball against them. They've had a hard time containing wide receivers especially, giving up the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to them. Since Brian Quick went down for the season, Bailey is the only Rams wide receiver to do anything worthwhile, so if anyone's going to take advantage of the matchup, it's him. His emergence has coincided with Shaun Hill's insertion at quarterback, which probably isn't a coincidence. Hill has been a successful backup in the league for years and is more capable of leading his team down the field than Austin Davis was. Plus, if you've actually seen some of Bailey's catches, you'll recognize he's a special talent. They're not Odell Beckham good, but he's making it pretty easy for Hill to throw him the ball. I'd be starting him over players like Kelvin Benjamin, Anquan Boldin, Jordan Matthews, Torrey Smith, Mohamed Sanu, Jarvis Landry, Mike Wallace and Donte Moncrief this week.

    Stedman Bailey's role in the offense growing

    Rams second-year wide receiver Stedman Bailey is starting to see his role in the offense grow, and he put up his second solid outing in a row in Week 13 against the Raiders. Bailey was targeted six times in the game, actually down from nine the week before, but he put together the best game of his career anyways. He hauled in five of those passes for 100 yards, his first career 100-yard game. Bailey now has 189 yards on 12 catches and a touchdown over the last two games, and appears to have cemented his role as one of the team's top wide receivers. Given his lack of a track record, Fantasy owners probably want to avoid relying on Bailey, but he should at least be worth an add in deeper PPR formats, given the rapport he has shown with Shaun Hill.

    Rams WR Stedman Bailey does it again

    Rams second-year wideout Stedman Bailey caught five passes for 100 yards, all in the first quarter, of Sunday's blowout win over the Raiders. It was Bailey's first career 100-yard game and his second straight solid performance after he made seven grabs for 89 yards and a touchdown Week 12. Bailey was targeted a team-high six times. St. Louis stopped throwing after getting up big. Bailey, who has suddenly become the Rams' go-to receiver, visits the Redskins in Week 14.

    Rams settling into three-receiver rotation

    The Rams "seem to have settled into a three-man rotation at wide receiver," reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The paper noted Kenny Britt played 59 snaps at San Diego, followed by Tavon Austin (50) and Stedman Bailey (43). Chris Givens played just 14 snaps and was not targeted. St. Louis hosts the Raiders on Sunday.

    Rams receiving corps still being sorted out

    So who predicted Stedman Bailey would lead the Rams in receiving Week 12 at San Diego? Yeah, me neither. But despite entering the game with only eight catches all season, there he was catching seven balls for 89 yards and a touchdown. It wasn't one of those fluky, flow-of-the-game-type performances either. The Rams only lost by three. Since the injury to Brian Quick in Week 8, no one had emerged as the go-to guy, and the recent change at quarterback only added the opportunity. So perhaps we shouldn't be any more surprised by this performance than we were by Kenny Britt's four catches for 128 yards and a touchdown last week. Britt, by the way, had only two catches for 37 yards in this one, receiving six targets, which is exactly why you should sit back and see how this situation develops rather than commit big dollars to Bailey. The opportunity is there for sure, but Rams aren't exactly built to have a prolific passing attack. And so far, no one has sustained anything from one week to the next. Even Quick had to do that before we bought into him in Fantasy.
