Brandon Lloyd Fantasy Update: Rams WR Remains Top Option

Despite the fact the St. Louis Rams started their third quarterback since his arrival from the Denver Broncos, Brandon Lloyd continued to be a primary receiving option. While Steven Jackson and Danario Alexander both ended up with more receiving yards in the 20-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, Lloyd still managed to make five catches for 42 yards. Lloyd has now made 10 catches over the past two weeks.

Even with Kellen Clemens making the start in the place of the injured Sam Bradford, the Rams still were forced to throw the ball as they tried to come back from an early deficit. Clemens threw the ball 36 times, which could be a good sign for the coming weeks, as the Rams face the possibility that Bradford will miss the remainder of the season.

The Rams will not be in a favorable situation next weekend, as they will be traveling to Pittsburgh. The Steelers pass rush should have a field day against the battered St. Louis offensive line, which could make for a difficult day for Lloyd and the other WR options.
