    WR's (Who starts?)

    So it's looking like our wide receiving corp is going to look like this:

    Danny Amendola
    Steve Smith
    Brian Quick
    Chris Givens
    Greg Salas
    Brandon Gibson

    Note: Austin Pettis is suspended for the first 2 regular season games.

    Who are your starting 3?

    Gibson, Smith, and Amendola for a few weeks, but (barring injury), after that Quick and/or Salas/Pettis gets added into that mix.

    Amendola and Smith I think are locks to start. Gibson being hurt and not practicing needs to have a big game Sat IMO to lock down the third spot.

    Today I'm going... Amendola, Smith and Givens day one.

    I'm with Rambos here. As of this morning, I think it will be Amendola, Smith and Givens. After a few weeks I think we could see Quick in there depending on his growth over the beginning of the season.

    I agree, this is the most logical starting three. Givens just has that speed to keep defenses honest and they'd be crazy not to use it if he can catch it and make them burn.

    Re: WR's (Who starts?)

    Really, guys? The 4th round rookie starting on day 1?

    I'm not saying you're wrong. You may be right. But I'd be really surprised to see him getting 1st team reps on day 1. Has he stood out that much in camp? Or is this just a speed thing?

    I say gibson, smith, amendola, givens, quick. As much as you want too, you cant count out mr. Preseason (gibson). When he's in the game he looks like the best reciever other than amendola.

    Re: WR's (Who starts?)

    So far this pre-season after 2 games only 1 receiver has shown he is starting caliber and that is Danny Amendola...Pettis made 1 long reception vs. KC and that is it and he is suspended to start the season so he does not count

    So as of now i only have 1 starter...im not committing to anyone else because quite frankly none of the other receivers have separated themselves from each other.

    Not sure anyone had separated themselves in camp there is this cluster of receivers. Smith and Danny bring enough experience on game day to have a rookie with that group, would not surprise me. Givens has IMO looked very good in the games. He does stretch the field, there is film of him doing that against the Colts. Detroit will have to take into account and cover this guy deep. The speed is a factor, he has shown he can get behind the secondary has done it three times. That what has been missing from the rams for awhile. Marshal made the comment last week he thinks Givens will lead the Rams in receiving yards, so I think he has turned some heads in preseason.

    I want to see him get some reps with Sam on Sat for sure...

    Forgot this point about Givens... we got him in the forth but a lot of media types and teams had him as a second round pick. Les and Fishers rolling the dice, could pay off early.

    Nine best 'bang for the buck' draft picks

    Several teams landed very talented prospects at a discounted price. Dan Pompei

    Chris Givens by the Rams, 96th overall. Givens was a rated a second round talent by a number of teams. He fell because of concerns about his knees and concerns about off field conduct.

    So instead you say Gibson is starting day one? Okay thats understanding.

    But, you say Pettis(after suspension), Salas, and Quick will soon get into the mix.

    Then who will be cut when Pettis returns?

    Will we start Gibson two games then cut him? IMO, Gibsons the odd man out.

    Ofcourse theres more football to be played before this cut but Gibson has the least amount of potential of the Top 7.

    Givens could start simply because they will use him to stretch the field. He won't bring in starters numbers, but by taking numbers out of the box he will help the run game and also open up space for mid range routes for guys like Amendola and Kendricks

    2 WR Sets: Danny Amendola, Steve Smith
    3 WR Sets: Chris Givens, Danny Amendola, Steve Smith
    4 WR Sets: Brian Quick, Danny Amendola, Steve Smith, Chris Givens
    5 WR Sets: Brian Quick, Danny Amendola, Steve Smith, Greg Salas, Chris Givens

    I think Givens will see a fair share of snaps. We must sprinkle him in with the 1's because he needs to be the deep threat, and the gamebreaker. Quick will need time to adjust. He may start over Smith by week 4. Steve Smith and Amendola are solid. Salas hasn't done much so far. Pettis looks nice, but hes suspended for 2 games.

    I'd say Gibson. I'm not as high on him as others are. I think Pettis has a much higher ceiling.
