Looking for a fantasy sleeper wide receiver? Say hello to Brian Quick of the St. Louis Rams.

The second year wideout was already a deep sleeper on many cheat sheets, but after ESPN suggested that the St. Louis Rams have special packages built especially for Quick in the red zone, his status just rose.


There are no surprises on this list as these five were basically entrenched in their roster spots from day one. Givens and Pettis are the odds-on starters on the outside with a lot of Austin in the slot mixed in. Quick came on as camp went along and has a chance to break through to the starting lineup at some point opposite Givens. For now, Quick is likely to be used in select situations, including the red zone where his size can be an asset. Bailey probably won’t contribute much to the offense right away but was a pleasant surprise on special teams during the preseason and could chip in there for the time being. It’s probably unlikely the Rams will add here unless a potential kick returner would come available.

Quick is more of a red zone target/vertical threat given his size, so he shouldn’t be somebody who is catching a vast amount of post routes but in touchdown heavy leagues, you could certainly do worse.
