Lance Kendricks TE STL 11 Months

Lance Kendricks caught two passes for 23 yards in Week 8 versus Seattle.

Kendricks saw five targets, good for second-most on the team along with Chris Givens. The Rams are playing a lot of two- and three-tight end sets, so Kendricks is heavily involved on offense. However, it's not enough to make him fantasy-worthy. Kendricks is a TE3 in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Lance Kendricks caught three passes for 25 yards in St. Louis' Week 1 win over the Cardinals.

Lance Kendricks (knee) expects to play Week 1.

Rams TE Lance Kendricks had his right knee scoped last month.

Kendricks was dealing with swelling in his knee last month and decided to have it cleaned out. The former second-round pick showed up on the injury report a couple of times last season with a knee injury, but he didn't miss a game. With Jared Cook in town, Kendricks is expected to focus on blocking in 2013. He's sitting out OTAs, but he should be ready for training camp.

Lance Kendricks caught three passes for 33 yards versus the Seahawks in Week 17.

Kendricks had a much better sophomore season after he struggled badly with drops as a rookie in 2011. The former Wisconsin tight end caught 42 passes for 519 yards and four touchdowns while also proving to be a force as a willing blocker. The Rams could do a lot worse at the position, but there's also a lot of room for improvement. If the Titans' Jared Cook somehow makes it to free agency and avoids the franchise tag in Tennessee, reuniting with Jeff Fisher in St. Louis seems like a perfect fit.

Lance Kendricks caught four passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in St. Louis' Week 16 win over the Bucs.

The 100-yard game was the first of Kendricks' career, and was thanks to an 80-yard touchdown on the first play of the second half. Wide open down the seam, Kendricks looked like an offensive lineman lumbering to the end zone, but managed to make a tackler miss on what will likely go down as the longest play of his career. The 119 yards were a new career high by 48.
