Last season the St. Louis Rams were the youngest team in the NFL, so naturally they would go out and look for veterans to come in and help out the young guys right? Wrong. What the Rams did is get younger, losing the majority of their veterans and replacing them with young bodies. The last of the veterans sit on the offensive line with most of the offense being 25 or younger.With the departure of Steven Jackson and Danny Amendola there is some serious voids to be filled on offense. The addition of Jake Long gives the Rams a much needed proven LT to protect the not so mobile Sam Bradford. How will the young guys come together and will their defense remain solid? Question 5: Life after Steven Jackson, who's the lead-back or is it committee time?Isaiah Pead was the Ram's 2012 second round pick but was severely unspectacular last season.

Chris Givens, 2013 Fantasy Sleeper

It seems I have a thing for Rams and people named Chris when I do these sleeper posts as I gave you Chris Ivory and Sam Bradford earlier this month.  Don’t take that statement about Rams as a bestiality thing, BTW.  The only animals I’d go after are the kind Tom Brady married.  They’ve got cool horns!  But enough about this, I’m here now to talk a bit about a man.  A...

One man's opinion: Rams will finish 9-7

ST. LOUIS -- Ten wins should be enough for the Rams to make the playoffs. Even if 10 aren't enough, no one should be disappointed in the Rams if they win that many games. They have a legitimate chance, too, even though their schedule is the fourth toughest in the NFL based on 2012 winning percentages. But to win 10, they'll need to win at least one more game than they...
