Austin Pettis makes three grabs in in over Buccaneers
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rams wide receiver Austin Pettis was limited to three catches in his team's Week 2 win over the Buccaneers in Tampa.

He made an acrobatic 27-yard reception late in the fourth quarter, which led to the team's game-winning field goal. He was targeted four times and finished with three catches for 46 yards in a 19-17 victory.

The Rams will be back at home to host the Cowboys in Week 3.

Kenny Britt among Rams' starters
by Larry Hartstein |

The Rams' first depth chart lists Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin as the starting wideouts, reports ESPN.com. Brian Quick and Stedman Bailey are the backups, with Chris Givens and Austin Pettis on the third string.

Austin Pettis helped by Stedman Bailey's suspension
by Larry Hartstein |

With Rams receiver Stedman Bailey suspended for the first four games, Austin Pettis has a better chance of making the roster, reports ESPN.com. However, Pettis still is no lock to make the team.

The Rams would clear $1.5 million in cap space by cutting Pettis, who caught 38 passes for 399 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Rams don't view receiver as a need
by Larry Hartstein |

Chris Givens led Rams wideouts with just 569 receiving yards, but general manager Les Snead doesn't think the team needs to upgrade at the position. “I think our receivers right now, I truly believe as they progress … we cannot have another receiver around here, and we’re going to be a good football team," Snead told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Rookie Tavon Austin led the wideouts with 40 catches, two more than Austin Pettis and six more than Givens.

by Larry Hartstein |

Wideout Chris Givens was targeted four times without a catch. He ran once for minus-4 yards. Receiver Brian Quick was unable to secure his lone target.

Rams receivers do little in win
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

The Rams didn't need much from the passing game in Week 16 against the Buccaneers, so they got little production out of the receiving corps in a 23-13 win.

No receiver for the Rams had more than 50 yards on the game, and role players Brian Quick and Austin Pettis barely made any impact. Both players finished with 16 yards on two receptions, while being targeted twice in the game.

Neither Quick nor Pettis has managed to do much recently. The Rams finish the season in Week 17 against the Seahawks.

Several Rams play role in defeat of Saints
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jared Cook is the starting tight end for the Rams, but he was the least productive Sunday against New Orleans with just one catch for 8 yards.

Wideout Austin Pettis led the way among the minor contributors with four catches for 41 yards. Fellow wide receiver Stedman Bailey (2-26) and Chris Givens (1-31) also made it into the stat sheet. Bailey added a 6-yard run.

Rams receivers do little Week 14
by Chris Cwik |

Rams WR Stedman Bailey, WR Chris Givens and WR Austin Pettis did little Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Bailey actually finished second on the team in receiving yardage, catching four passes for 46 yards. Givens caught just one pass for 21 yards. Pettis caught one pass for 19 yards. All three players were limited by Kellen Clemens' poor play against Arizona. Clemens only threw for 181 yards, and tossed two interceptions. 

They'll take on the Saints Week 15.

Rams receivers not great Week 12 options
by Nando Di Fino |

While Zac Stacy owners have to be loving the 26-plus carries he's seen in each of the three weeks, owners of Rams receivers are far less enthusiastic. Kellen Clemens has thrown just 82 passes over his three starts, an average of about 27 per game. Things hit a low in Week 11, as Clemens completed just nine of 16 attempts against the Colts. 

This situation leaves the Rams receivers with little to show for their efforts. Austin Pettis, Chris Givens, and Brian Quick have all met varying degrees of success this season, but haven't shown enough consistency -- especially since Clemens took over -- to use in most standard-sized Fantasy leagues. 

Givens leads the team in receiving yards (463), but has yet to score a touchdown and ranks third in receptions. Pettis has the most touchdowns (four), but hasn't scored since Week 5, and has six receptions in his last five games. Quick is essentially off the radar, with one long touchdown pass making up the bulk of his Fantasy scoring this season. 

While any Rams receiver could have a Tavon Austin Week 11-style breakout, it's nearly impossible to figure out who will have it, and when. Because of this, Rams receivers are best left on the waiver wire in most formats.

Tavon Austin, Austin Pettis do little in loss
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

Rams wide receivers Tavon Austin and Austin Pettis continued to have limited roles in Week 9 against the Titans, as they combined for just one reception in a 28-21 loss.

Austin was held without a catch on two targets, while rushing once for 6 yards. Pettis was only slightly more effective, despite being a bigger part of the game plan. Pettis was targeted four times, but came up with a single reception for 13 yards.

The Rams take on the Colts in Week 10.

Austin Pettis plays through thigh trouble
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

Rams wide receiver Austin Pettis (thigh) was able to suit up in Week 9 against the Titans Sunday, which comes as little surprise. Pettis was able to get through the week in practice, and was considered probable for the game.

Austin Pettis probable Week 9
by Chris Cwik |

Rams WR Austin Pettis is probable Week 9 against the Titans.

Pettis is dealing with a thigh injury. After not practicing Wednesday, Pettis was able to practice in full Thursday and Friday.

Rams receivers not worth your time
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

The Rams receiving corps has struggled to get going this season, and a confluence of factors are working against the likes of Tavon Austin, Chris Givens and the rest in Week 9.

First off, the Rams will be starting Kellen Clemens at quarterback yet again -- he passed for just 158 yards in his first start a week ago, while being intercepted twice. In addition to the presence of the underwhelming passer, the Rams have to face the Titans, who have been stingy against the pass. Only one team allows fewer than the 13.4 Fantasy points per game the Titans give up to opposing wide receivers.

At this point, it is hard to rely on any of the Rams' receivers, from Givens and Austin to Austin Pettis, all of whom rank among the top four on the team in receiving yardage. None are worth using as anything more than an emergency starter for Week 9.
