St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher took over a 2-14 team, which is part of why he might feel it necessary to give the young starters additional snaps during the final two preseason game. Fisher told The Sports Xchange that the starters could play into the second half of even their final preseason game against Baltimore:
"The halftime experience is unusual. You need to go through it before the regular season starts. We don't opt to do it in Week 3, we'll do it in Week 4. Come in, cool down, get yourself warmed back up again and go back out and play. That's as it relates to just the starters."
Analysis: When it comes to fantasy football, the Rams have been one of the last teams you look to unless you're playing a team defense. St. Louis has finished in the bottom third in scoring in each of the last five seasons and won just 15 games during that time. The additional experience for Sam Bradford and his young wide receivers could be valuable, but if the offensive line is unable to keep Bradford on his feet, it could be very dangerous for the quarterback who is already returning from injury.
