St. Louis Rams wide receiver Chris Givens and starting cornerback Janoris Jenkins were benched on Sunday for breaking team rules, according to coach Jeff Fisher. Both players were inactive for Sunday's tie with the San Francisco 49ers and Fisher wouldn't confirm after the game that the two would be active for Week 11.
Given has turned into the team's deep threat, averaging 25.6 yards per catch. The Rams face the New York Jets on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: The return of Danny Amendola probably gave Fisher a little more flexibility to make his point with Givens, who turned in a number of big plays for the Rams this season.
Givens should return next week but he is a low-end No. 3 fantasy wide receiver, who could see his value and targets drop now that Amendola is back in the lineup.
