Brian Quick WR STL 4 Days
Quick caught his one target in Saturday's 21-7 preseason loss to Green Bay and turned it into a 41-yard gain.
Quick showed Saturday why the Rams were so high on him and why they have been a little disappointed with his first two years in the league. St. Louis needs him to make an impact this season, as their wide receiving corps remains in flux.

Quick (abdomen) and Kenny Britt started Friday's preseason opener against the Saints, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.
Quick failed to catch his only target, and Britt didn't even get one. While there's no need to place any weight on Friday's results, the fact remains that the Rams' receiving corps is loaded with question marks. Stedman Bailey, who could threaten Britt and Quick once he returns from a four-game suspension, caught one pass for 24 yards and a touchdown on three targets. Austin Pettis caught a pass for 21 yards in the second quarter, while Chris Givens wasn't targeted until late in the third. Tavon Austin is seemingly destined for a slot/move role.

Quick (abdominal) returned to practice Tuesday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Quick had been off the practice field for a couple days due to an abdominal strain, but returned to action Tuesday. He's a candidate to see the occasional deep ball from quarterback Sam Bradford this season, but likely remains behind Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt in the hunt for overall targets.

The Rams have been "very encouraged" by the play of third-year WR Brian Quick through the opening week of training camp.
Phil Savage, the Senior Bowl director and former Browns GM, visited Rams camp Tuesday and came away impressed with Quick. Rams coaches believe the production is finally matching Quick's raw speed-size combo. Quick has been getting a ton of reps with the first-team offense, along with Kenny Britt, and appears to be putting his game together. Quick (6'3/218) has 4.50 wheels and was drawing Terrell Owens comps when the Rams took him 33rd overall in 2012.

Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer called third-year WR Brian Quick the "most improved player I've seen" at OTAs.
Quick is becoming a bit of a summer superstar in shorts and t-shirts. It didn't translate to the field last season, and we're not taking the bait this year until he proves it in September. With Kenny Britt, a similar player to Quick, now in the fold, Quick's snaps may be even harder to come by in 2014. Quick has mostly been a red-zone-only option since being the No. 33 overall pick in 2012.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch expects Brian Quick's playing time to suffer most if the Kenny Britt signing works out.
In two seasons since getting selected 33rd overall, Quick has totaled just 29 catches for 458 yards and four touchdowns. And like Britt, he's a big-bodied outside receiver that profiles as an "X" receiver. If Britt's knee is right and his head is on straight, Quick may not even get the 361 snaps he saw in 2013.

Brian Quick was held without a catch on one target in the Rams' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.
The 33rd pick in the 2012 draft, Quick is the most talented of St. Louis' receivers but the light has yet to flip on for the mild-mannered Appalachian Stat alum. Quick ends his second NFL season with 18 receptions for 302 yards and two touchdowns. The Rams have publicly compared Quick to Vincent Jackson, who similarly began his career slowly. We like Quick's Dynasty upside, but he's clearly not yet been ready for prime time. He'll be a late-round flier in 2014 re-draft leagues.

Brian Quick caught three passes for 41 yards and one touchdown in Week 13 against the 49ers.
Quick saw four targets on the day, with him mostly getting his action in garbage time. That's when the touchdown came. Quick reeled in a three-yard touchdown on a fade pass with 18 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Quick remains intriguing in dynasty formats, but he's not on the re-draft radar.
