Chris Givens said a nagging ankle injury bothered him for most of last season.

Rams GM Les Snead said he doesn't believe the team needs a No. 1 receiver.

"The answer is really 'no' on that," Snead said. "I think our receivers right now, I truly believe as they progress and the oldest guy just finished his third year, we cannot have another receiver around here and we're going to be a good football team." Chris Givens led the Rams with 569 yards receiving this past season but didn't score a single touchdown. The Rams haven't had a 700-yard receiver since Torry Holt in 2008. Brian Quick is shaping up as a bust. No matter what Snead says, we expect St. Louis to have its eyes on Clemson's Sammy Watkins and Texas A&M's Mike Evans in the first round of May's draft.

Chris Givens was held without a catch in St. Louis' Week 17 loss to Seattle.

He lost four yards on his lone offensive touch, a rushing attempt. Givens looked primed for a second-year breakout during an eye-catching preseason, but flopped when the real games began, and things only got worse when Sam Bradford tore his ACL, paving the way for Kellen Clemens at quarterback. Givens can run like the wind, but isn't a physical threat at the first and second levels and was obviously stretched as the Rams' No. 1 wide receiver this year. He actually caught fewer passes as a sophomore than Givens did as a rookie, finishing with a 34-569-0 line as a 16-game starter. Givens will be a decent bounce-back WR4/5 target in 2014 fantasy drafts.

Chris Givens caught two passes for 24 yards in St. Louis' Week 16 win over the Bucs.

This would be the same Chris Givens who was spotted talking trash to Darrelle Revis before the game. Of course, by Givens' recent standards, it was a monster afternoon. Givens won't be on the daily-league radar in Week 17 against the Seahawks. Due a $3 million roster bonus in March, Cook's $3 million 2014 salary is fully guaranteed.

Chris Givens caught one pass for 21 yards in Week 14 against Arizona.

Chris Givens WR STL 9 Months

Chris Givens was held without a catch on six targets in St. Louis' Week 12 win over the Bears.

Givens had one grab overturned by penalty, and another upheld as a no-catch on review. He was drawing looks deep, but just couldn't hook up with Kellen Clemens. The zero-catch effort was Givens' first of the season. Givens has some legitimate deep skills, but hasn't been able to translate them to WR4 status. That should remain the case going forward.

Chris Givens caught two passes for 54 yards in St. Louis' Week 10 win over the Colts.

Givens wasn't even the Rams' primary deep threat, with that honor going to rookie Tavon Austin. Givens' skill-set remains intriguing, but held below 60 yards in nine of 10 games this season, he's not a legitimate fantasy option in re-draft leagues with Kellen Clemens at quarterback.

Chris Givens caught four balls for 55 yards in the Rams' Week 9 loss to the Titans.

Givens hauled in a 25-yarder on St. Louis' final, desperation drive but was otherwise fairly quiet. A Mike Wallace-type player, Rams haven't been able to get him the football downfield this season. Givens would be a poor WR3 gamble against Vontae Davis and the Colts' stingy pass defense in Week 10.

Chris Givens caught four passes for 59 yards in Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Givens was targeted five times and the receiving yards total was his second-highest output of the season. He's simply not burning defensive backs at the rate he was as a rookie last season. And with Kellen Clemens now under center, we wouldn't expect that to change anytime soon. Givens did his work on slant patterns Monday night. His upside has been sapped. Givens is a WR4 moving forward.
