Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) is on track to be ready for Week 1, according to insider Nick Wagoner.  Quick separated his shoulder and tore his rotator cuff last October and has spent the offseason rehabbing.  He was able to do some individual drills this spring, per Wagoner, and should be ready for full-squad work at some point during training camp.  Before going down last year, Quick was emerging as St. Louis #1 WR.  He tallied 25 catches for 375 yards and 3 scores in 7 games.  He could emerge as a weekly fantasy starter in 2015 if he puts that shoulder injury behind him.

WR Brian Quick has signed a 1-year deal with the Redskins. The 2012 2nd-rounder boasts an intriguing blend of size and athleticism, but it's yet to translate to on-field production. He totaled just 105 catches and 10 TDs in 5 seasons with the Rams, although QB play was at least partly to blame for those muted numbers. Quick joins a much better passing game in Washington. And the departures of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon leave behind 214 targets. The 'Skins, of course, signed WR Terrelle Pryor earlier this month and return WRs Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson. Quick is most likely to settle in as the #4, but he'll at least be worth monitoring this summer.

Rams WR Brian Quick will play against the Cardinals this weekend.  “Had a great week (of practice); hope it carries over to the game,'' HC Jeff Fisher said Friday.  Quick was a healthy scratch for St. Louis' first 3 games after missing most of the offseason after last year's serious shoulder injury.  But he's the most talented WR on the roster and could quickly emerge as the #1 option in the passing game.  Quick is worth monitoring closely -- and adding now in deeper leagues.

Rams HC Jeff Fisher said of WR Brian Quick on Monday that there's "a chance he'll be up this week," according to ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner. Fisher has yet to reveal exactly what has kept his team's most talented wideout inactive the 1st 3 weeks, though he did call it a "numbers" thing rather than a health issue. St. Louis needs playmakers, though. And Quick's the closest thing they have at receiver. We'd bet on seeing him at Arizona. That said, we also would have bet on seeing him long before now. Don't expect much fantasy football value from anyone in the Rams passing game against a tough Cardinals D, though.

Rams HC Jeff Fisher said WR Brian Quick's Week 1 deactivation was "numbers related" and not "physically related."  So Quick is behind Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens on the depth chart.  We'd say it's tough to believe, but this is the Rams we're talking about.  Quick spent most of the offseason rehabbing last year's nasty shoulder injury but was the team's best WR in camp by most accounts.  We'd still bet on him working his way up the totem pole this year, so he's worth stashing in deep leagues.

Rams WR Brian Quick is a surprise inactive for today's game against the Seahawks.  It's unclear if he suffered a setback with last year's shoulder injury or just isn't ready for a role.  We'd continue to stash Quick in fantasy leagues as St. Louis' potential #1 WR later this season.  Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey will serve as the Rams' top 3 WRs today, but none are strong fantasy plays in a tough matchup.
