St. Louis Rams wide receiver Austin Pettis is practicing again after serving a two-game suspension. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Austin Pettis is ready to play this week if the team needs him, according to coach Jeff Fisher. Pettis practiced Wednesday for the first time since serving his two-game suspension. Fisher said (via The St. Louis Post Dispatch) that Pettis had clearly been studying the playbook and was ready to play if the Rams needed him. St. Louis faces the Chicago Bears in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: It would be hard to imagine Pettis making too much of an impact this week, but he could get an opportunity to earn playing time for the Rams as the season goes along. Danny Amendola is the team's top receiver but not much else appears settled at that position. In deeper leagues, keep Pettis in mind in case he gets more time on the field.
