Hello fellow Rams fans. A major issue of ours for years has been a mediocre (at best) receiving corps. as you all know, but it seems that after the past couple drafts, plus Amendola and Alexander (hopefully) finally being back to 100%, we might have some potential for depth at the position this season. My question as I'm sure most of you are wondering as well, is who will step up and produce the most?
Of the receivers left on the team, Gibson (36 rec., 431 yds., and 1 TD.) and Alexander (26 rec., 431 yds., and 2 TDs) put up almost identical numbers for the most productive receiver last season . Take into account that Alexander missed 6 weeks due to injury.
Here are my predictions for our WRs on the squad right now, but I would like to hear what you all think since this is my first post on TST and I'm really just taking a shot in the dark on these predictions based on minimal research and personal bias...
A.) REC. B.) YDS. C.) TDS.
Danny Amendola A.) 92 B.) 850 C.) 3
Brian Quick A.) 51 B.) 860 C.) 6
Danario Alexander A.) 43 B.) 550 C.) 3
Brandon Gibson A.) 43 B.) 500 C.) 4
Austin Pettis A.) 32 B.) 421 C.) 3
Greg Salas A.) 35 B.) 350 C.) 2
Steve Smith ? ? ?
Chris Givens ? ? ?
Like I said, I pulled those predictions out of my butt, assuming that Bradford's gonna have a breakout season, hopefully the O-line steps it up, and the Jackson/Pead combo can work to put more pressure on the running game and leaving more room for the receivers. I also tend to be optimistic as I was telling all my friends (I go to school in Ohio) that the Rams were going to win the division last year... not so close on that call. Also, Any given one of the receivers could potentially do much better or worse obviously but there's so many of them that its hard to predict.
I don't even know where to start when predicting for Smith and Givens so I left them blank but I'm really interested in what you all think about them.
