Wide receiver Chis Givens has started to emerge as the big-play threat in the St. Louis Rams offense. Givens has seven catches through six games but is averaging 28.1 yards per reception heading into Sunday's game with the Green Bay Packers.
Givens in the past three weeks has had catches of 65, 52 and 51 yards. In the previous three seasons, the Rams have had a total of three pass plays of at least 50 yards, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Fantasy Impact: Givens is not on most fantasy radars because he's only has seven catches on the season. However, Thomas points out that Givens and Sam Bradford are starting to develop some chemistry and that could be important with Danny Amendola out.
Givens is a bye-week replacement with the potential to make a couple of big plays a game. He is at best a flex play or low-end No. 3 receiver for Week 7.
