There ended up being room to go down following Quick's 23-yard game in Week 1. Quick has never been a consistent target, but it's also hard to blame him here. The Rams have some of the weakest quarterback play in the league - making so-so receivers like Quick not even worth a spot to fill in during bye weeks.
Quick's five targets trailed only teammates Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt on the night, which could prove a sign of things to come this season. As it stands, Quick is the No. 3 wideout in the Rams' offense, where a lackluster quarterback situation and focus on running the ball could make his production hard to rely on.
Quick made the final roster, the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Quick and Pharoh Cooper (shoulder) were competing for the No. 3 wide receiver job, and while the rookie emerged as a favorite for the role, he probably won't be available Week 1 in San Francisco. The 27-year-old Quick still faces a difficult path to fantasy relevance, likely serving as the No. 3/4 wideout in what figures to be a run-oriented offense. He caught just 10 of 32 targets for 102 yards in 13 games last season, failing to build on the promise he displayed early in 2014 before suffering a career-threatening shoulder injury.
Quick caught three passes (on three targets) for 15 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Broncos.
Behind Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt in the Rams' wideout pecking order, Quick and Pharoh Cooper appear to be jostling for the No. 3 slot, with Saturday's three-catch effort a boost to Quick's hopes on that front, after having been recently called out for his pass drops by coach Jeff Fisher.
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher did not mention Quick when discussing the team's competition at wide receiver during Thursday's media session, Vincent Bonsignore of the LA Daily News reports.
This may have just been an honest mistake, as the Rams have a slew of wideouts competing for slotting behind Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin. In fact, Quick got work with the first-team offense in the Rams' preseason opener, making his only catch (a 13-yarder) on the second drive of the game. He did then play deep into the second quarter, which suggests he still needs to earn a role.
