St. Louis Rams Midseason Grades

2 of 5


QB: Austin Davis

After a very hot start, Davis has slowed down over the past three weeks, but still has managed to help pull out two big wins against NFC West opponents. Davis hasn’t shown that he is the future of this team at this point, but he has shown that he has what it takes to win games in the NFL and at the very least can be a serviceable backup.

Grade: B

RBs: Zac Stacy, Tre Mason,  Benny Cunningham, and Trey Watts

The St. Louis Rams have gotten a lot of good value out of their running backs. Stacy was a 5th round pick while Cunningham and Watts are both undrafted. Meanwhile, Tre Mason, a third round pick, has started to work his way into the starting lineup. These four backs have become quite a tandem that all bring something different to the table. The St. Louis Rams have the 20thth run offense in the league with just over 100 yards per game and the Rams have yet to have a running back rush for over 100 yards.

Grade: B-

WRs: , Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey, and Chris Givens

In the absence of Brian Quick, Kenny Britt and Stedman Bailey  have started to make plays over the past couple of weeks, but the group still needs to step up and help out Davis.  Austin still manages to be a disappointment as he only has 15 catches in 2014 for only 134 yards.

Grade: C

TEs: Lance Kendricks and Jared Cook

The Rams tight ends continue to make plays and be two of Austin Davis’ favorite targets. They have each made their fair share of plays in the passing game, and Cook’s catch on Sunday against the 49ers was his 40th consecutive game with at least one reception. Although they could do better, this group overall has been pretty solid.

Grade: B

OL: Greg Robinson, Rodger Saffold, Scott Wells, Davin Joseph, and Joe Barksdale

Where to even begin with this group…Joe Barksdale and Rodger Saffold have both played well this season, and Greg Robinson has finally stepped in and has played well. as for Joseph and Wells, there is plenty of room to improve. Joseph and  Wells are both the weak points on the offensive line, but right now they are they Rams’ only options.

Grade: C

Overall Offensive Grade: C+
