The Rams entered Week 3 without a single touchdown to its name, but on the team's first possession Sunday, Quick connected with QB Case Keenum on a deep route for a 44-yard score. Notably, that catch represented the first Los Angeles Rams touchdown since 1994. However, the former second-rounder was only targeted once afterword, as fellow wideouts Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt largely commanded the rest of Keenum's attention for the remainder of the contest. Due to his nature as a low-volume receiver in a low-volume passing offense, Quick likely won't make for a viable fantasy option on a consistent basis moving forward, but his outlook definitely appears a little rosier than it did prior to this weekend since the team was finally able to show some sign of life on offense. Next up for Quick and the Rams is a Week 4 matchup on the road against the Cardinals.
There ended up being room to go down following Quick's 23-yard game in Week 1. Quick has never been a consistent target, but it's also hard to blame him here. The Rams have some of the weakest quarterback play in the league - making so-so receivers like Quick not even worth a spot to fill in during bye weeks.
Quick's five targets trailed only teammates Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt on the night, which could prove a sign of things to come this season. As it stands, Quick is the No. 3 wideout in the Rams' offense, where a lackluster quarterback situation and focus on running the ball could make his production hard to rely on.
Quick made the final roster, the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Quick and Pharoh Cooper (shoulder) were competing for the No. 3 wide receiver job, and while the rookie emerged as a favorite for the role, he probably won't be available Week 1 in San Francisco. The 27-year-old Quick still faces a difficult path to fantasy relevance, likely serving as the No. 3/4 wideout in what figures to be a run-oriented offense. He caught just 10 of 32 targets for 102 yards in 13 games last season, failing to build on the promise he displayed early in 2014 before suffering a career-threatening shoulder injury.
Quick caught three passes (on three targets) for 15 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Broncos.
Behind Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt in the Rams' wideout pecking order, Quick and Pharoh Cooper appear to be jostling for the No. 3 slot, with Saturday's three-catch effort a boost to Quick's hopes on that front, after having been recently called out for his pass drops by coach Jeff Fisher.
