Found August 26, 2012 on Fantasy Football SPIN:
The Rams have become at a fixture at the top of April's draft and their anemic passing game holds a good amount of the blame. St Louis finished last season as the 30th ranked passing attack while averaging just 179 YPG. Former first overall pick Sam Bradford missed 6 games last season due to injury and has reported that his ankle won't be 100% until after this season (sounds like he should have had surgery months ago). Jeff Fisher will attempt to bring the Rams back to relevance but is fully expected to rely heavily on the ground game limiting the upside of all Rams players not named Steven Jackson. For now all members of the Rams passing game are off limits except in deeper PPR leagues (maybe Amendola) or dynasty formats (rookies Brian Quick / Chris Givens may be worth late round fliers).
