Fantasy football season is here, almost. And players are getting all set to draft their teams. In an effort to help you out, or least offer up something from our vantage point, here is a quick take on the fantasy football outlook for the St. Louis Rams.

Steven Jackson, RB - Jackson, 29, is the top name for fantasy football on the Rams, and the team looks set to make him the center of their offense. If Jackson gets less than 20 touches per game, it would be a major upset at this point. Jackson looked a lot faster last week in preseason play, after losing 10 pounds and dropping his body fat to a ridiculous low.

Isaiah Pead, RB - Pead is a nice handcuff for Jackson, and the Rams didn't use a second-round pick just to stick him on the bench. He had a bad case of the rookie jitters last week, but should be fine once the season starts.

Danny Amendola, WR - He may not put up the yardage totals, but he should see plenty of balls coming his way as Sam Bradford's favorite target.

Lance Kendricks, TE - Tight ends get targets in Brian Scottenheimer's offensive system, and Kendricks looked much better in early work this year. With an offensive line likely to limit Bradford to 3-step drops, Kendricks and Amendola look like the top options in the passing game.

Keep an eye on Sam Bradford, but an emphasis on the running game and questions about pass protection make it seem like he could be limited as a fantasy option this year.
