Brian Quick deserves another shot
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After emerging as the Rams' go-to guy in Weeks 1-5, wide receiver Brian Quick has fallen on hard times the last two weeks, catching a combined three passes for 43 yards.

But the matchups weren't exactly working in his favor. The 49ers, who he faced in Week 6, ranked second against the pass before getting lit up by the Broncos in Week 7, and the Seahawks, who he faced in Week 7, still have Richard Sherman. It's pretty clear the Rams didn't want to throw the ball his way. They targeted Quick just two times against Seattle.

The thing is no one has really replaced Quick as the Rams' go-to guy the last two weeks. Tight end Jared Cook got a bunch of targets in Week 6, but that's been going on all year, really, and running back Benny Cunningham was the Rams' leading receiver in Week 7 with only 46 yards.

The Rams haven't forgotten about Quick. The matchups have simply forced them to make do without him the last two weeks. His Week 8 opponent, the Chiefs, have actually been pretty good against the pass themselves, but given that they've allowed the 11th-highest quarterback rating, it might just be a product of circumstances. You may not want to start Quick for that game, but you'll want to hold on to him to see if he bounces back.

Brian Quick targeted just twice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rams leading receiver Brian Quick was targeted just twice in the home win over the Seahawks, as quarterback Austin Davis chose not to challenge Richard Sherman's tight coverage. Quick caught both passes for 33 yards, giving him 43 scoreless yards over the past two games.

Quick will try to get going Week 8 at Kansas City.

Tough matchup could limit Brian Quick again
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Brian Quick was looking like the top option in the Rams' passing attack and a solid Fantasy option until his one-catch performance in Week 6 against the 49ers. Now, with  Richard Sherman and the Seahawks on the schedule in Week 7, he might not have a great chance to bounce back this Sunday.

The Seahawks have mostly held opposing No. 1 receivers in check this season, even if their overall pass defense isn't as stout as we might have expected coming into the season. They are allowing opposing wideouts to score 20.6 Fantasy points per game overall, but no No. 1 receiver has even reached double figures though five games; the likes of Jordy Nelson (8 points), Demaryius Thomas (5) and Dez Bryant (6) have all been held in check by Sherman.

Part of the issue for opposing receivers is that quarterbacks simply aren't throwing to Sherman's part of the field. Among cornerbacks who have played at least 50 percent of their team's snaps, only one player has been targeted fewer times than Sherman so far, according to ProFootballFocus.com.

Quick should be able to bounce back at some point, but this simply is not a great matchup for him. Look for better options in Week 7.

Brian Quick a victim of a tough matchup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Don't feel bad, Brian Quick owners. The Rams came up against a 49ers defense in Week 6 that ranks second against the pass, allowing 207.3 yards per game. The bigger surprise than his one-catch, 10-yard performance would have been if he had actually put up numbers.

He still has basically every game but this one. The only other time he was light on targets, getting four Week 3 against Dallas, he made up for it by scoring a touchdown. Prior to this game, Austin Davis always managed to find Quick.

I'm chalking it up as an aberration. My one concern -- and it's a big one -- is that the Rams host the Seahawks in Week 7, which is seemingly another tough matchup. But while the 49ers rank second against the pass, the Seahawks rank a not-so-intimidating 19th, allowing 252.2 yards per game. Still, with Richard Sherman ... it just seems kind of risky.

In leagues where I had options, I'd probably sit Quick for one more week. But I still like him overall. I'm certainly not dumping him.

Brian Quick makes little noise on MNF
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rams No. 1 receiver Brian Quick caught one of four targets for 10 yards in Monday's home loss to the 49ers. San Francsico blanketed Quick in coverage, and when he got open Austin Davis wasn't able to hit him.

It was a highly disappointing performance for Quick, who had seven catches for 149 yards and three touchdowns in his previous two games. Quick plays the Seahawks in Week 7.
