Todd Gurley (Running Back): Gurley has been cleared for contact drills so it is anyone's guess when he will take over the starting job for the Rams. Gurley will be one of the rookies to watch this season as he looks to be a difference maker for the Rams. The Rams offensive line is deffinetly in need of some work and may force Gurley to take a lot of hits early in the season. Gurley should be a solid backup or flex option for most fantasy owners by the middle of the season.

Tavon Austin (Wide Receiver): Austin will continue to look to carve out a role in this offense. With Foles under center the wide receiver could finally see some consistent numbers. Austin still may struggle as a productive fantasy wide receiver but has some value in deeper leagues.

Jared Cook (Tight End): Cook will be a sporadic TE2 however he could see an uptick in Targets with Foles under center. If this quarterback can jumpstart this offense Cook could become an option late in the draft.

Tre Mason (Running Back): Mason will get the start early in the season but Gurley will become the starter eventually. With Gurley's speedy recover Mason's value could take a nose dive early in the season.

Brian Quick (Wide Receiver): Quick has been a fantasy darling in past seasons and should continue to make a case for the best wide receiver for the Rams. Quick will be around later in drafts so he could be a solid sleeper as the season goes on.
