2015 St. Louis Rams Offseason Update

Fantasy Fuel: The St. Louis Rams may be the most interesting team to write about in the offseason. After a 10-loss season, the entire team has been revamped. QBs Sam Bradford and Shaun Hill, RB Zac Stacy, OT Jake Long, and DE Kendall Langford are all gone. Quarterback Nick Foles replaces the old QBs and comes in to start this new lineup of players. After finishing as a top 24 RB, despite only playing 12 games, Tre Mason is being passed on the depth chart by a "once-in-a-lifetime" player drafted 10th overall in the NFL Draft. RB Todd Gurley played at Georgia, but tore his ACL ending his junior season shy of 1,000 rushing yards. There are big plans for this man in the NFL. As he continues to rehab, he should surpass the 1,000 rushing yard threshold in the near future. As for now, RB Tre Mason is a valuable selection, as he will likely start the season as the main running back. As for the crew of WRs, none of them are ranked in the top 50 based on the consensus rankings. If Nick Foles returns to his 2013 form, he will undoubtedly add value to these wide receivers. If the 2014 Foles returns, he could be on the search for a new team this time next year. Tight end Jared Cook is only relevant in 2TE leagues.
