|The least exciting but possibly safest receiver among the St. Louis receiving corps might just be Stedman Bailey, who is now entering his third season in the NFL. Bailey was practically nonexistent through the first 10 games of 2014, but was finally given significant playing time in Week 12 when he caught a season-high seven passes for 89 yards and his only touchdown of the season. Bailey made 22 receptions for 349 yards in the Rams final six games, showing that he is a reliable option even in an otherwise stagnant passing game. Bailey doesn’t possess the elite size or quickness of either Britt or Quick, but what he lacks in physical stature, he makes up for in crisp route running and dependable hands. He won’t likely have many elite games, but Bailey could make for a decent Flex play in deeper leagues and thus should be considered for those looking for late-round value at wide receiver.
|Wes Welker agrees to terms with Rams|

|Wes Welker is back. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the former Patriots and Broncos wideout signed a deal with the St. Louis Rams, per a source informed of the team's plans. Coach Jeff Fisher later confirmed the addition during a meeting with reporters.
Welker's one-year deal allows him to earn, along with his base salary, up to $700K in incentives, based on playing time and catches, Rapoport added. (NFL.com)|
FFToday's Take: Welker's workout on Monday came on the heels of the Rams learning that receiver Stedman Bailey will serve a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Outside of Tavon Austin, no St. Louis receiver has more than 20 receptions, so the oft-concussed receiver will have an opportunity to contribute pretty quickly. It's an obvious low-risk, medium-upside move for an offense that needs more playmakers in the passing game.
