If you're looking for stud pass catchers to round out your fantasy squad this season, you might not want to look in St. Louis.

While the Rams have made a concerted effort to upgrade the weapons around quarterback Sam Bradford, there still isn't a whole lot to write home about.

First year receiver Brian Quick is the highest St. Louis player on SB Nation's current fantasy football WR rankings, coming in at 44. The first pick of the second round in this past draft, Quick is a large target (6'4"), who is just the right amount of physical to make him a solid red zone threat. Still, there's a reason four receivers went before him as Quick is about as raw as they come, making him a fantasy flier more than anything.

The only other Ram to make the list is reception machine Danny Amendola at 67. Amendola, 26, has shown the ability to be fantasy relevant before but his poor Yard After Catch ability (8.0) limits most his value in everything but PPR leagues.
