Fantasy Football Rankings: St. Louis Rams Could Make Waiver-Wire Sleepers, At Least

The St. Louis Rams aren't lighting up 2012's fantasy football rankings, but you can at least get them on the waiver wire.

This has been true for going on three years now: Aside from Steven Jackson, there isn't a member of the St. Louis Rams who sits on the draft-worthy half of any 2012 fantasy football rankings. This shouldn't come as a shock unless you have your fantasy draft inside the Edward Jones Dome. But that's not to say that the Rams won't be a part of your team's strategy this year-just that they'll come into play when the waiver wire becomes important.

The Rams, after all, will have somebody catching the ball, at least in theory; Danny Amendola could emerge as an option again, so long as you get points for receptions, or Giants Steve Smith could remain healthy for more than a game or two. Lance Kendricks could have another big preseason and shoot undeservedly up tight end rankings again! Even beleaguered Sam Bradford is just a few solid weeks away from being somebody in your league's go-to option after his starting quarterback gets arrested for dogfighting in Week 2.

None of this is going to be very exciting on draft day, but if you're a Rams fan you're probably used to that by now. Just say "I draft Isaac Bruce forever" under your breath in the second round and hope nobody notices.
