Quick caught all five of his targets for 61 yards during Sunday's game against Detroit.
The fifth-year receiver has now registered at least 50 receiving yards in each of the past four games for 234 total, and he has three touchdowns during the span. However, two of the scores came in Week 4, and Quick hasn't reached 70 receiving yards in any game this season. While being a consistent piece of the passing attack comes with some upside, Quick is hardly a reliable fantasy asset.
Quick (calf) is active for Sunday's Week 6 matchup with the Lions, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The Rams made Quick a late addition to the injury report this week after a calf injury limited him during Friday's practice, but it was apparently only a minor concern. Quick may have caused fantasy players to scramble to the waiver wire after producing two touchdowns against the Cardinals in Week 4, but as the Rams' third wideout, his limited target count figures to prevent him from reaching the end zone most weeks.
Mid-week additions are always worrisome, particularly on Friday when kickoff is less than 48 hours away. However, Quick did still practice in some capacity, which suggests his calf injury isn't serious. Though he only has 18 targets through five weeks, his absence would have a real impact on the Rams offense, as three of his 11 receptions have gone for more than 30 yards. Quick was held scoreless last week after scoring three touchdowns between Weeks 3 and 4, but he still managed to top 50 yards for a third straight game. Bradley Marquez, Mike Thomas or Pharoh Cooper would assume the No. 3 wideout role if Quick can't play, potentially sharing limited snaps.
Quick caught three of four targets for 51 yards during Sunday's loss to the Bills.
The three receptions tied a season high for Quick, as the veteran receiver's fantasy value remains touchdown dependent. He has caught 11 of his 18 targets for 204 yards and three scores through five games this season. Pair his low volume in the passing game with underwhelming quarterback play from Case Keenum (30th-ranked fantasy QB thus far), and Quick is unreliable most weeks. A date with Detroit is a favorable matchup in Week 6, though.
In what was a defensive battle, Quick's two touchdown's came up big, playing a huge role in the game's final result. His strong performance was coupled with quarterback Case Keenum playing his best game of the season. A lack of targets was a concern for Quick last week, but he received a season-high six targets Sunday, a positive sign for the fifth-year wideout. With the Rams returning home for a Week 5 matchup with Buffalo, Quick could see his run of solid performances continue.
