Description: Rams coach Jeff Fisher has benched quarterback Austin Davis.
Insight: How quickly things change in this league. Just a few weeks ago, respectable NFL analysts compared Davis to Kurt Warner, Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Brett Favre. After a rough fourth quarter in Week 10 that saw Davis turn the ball over three times on three straight possessions, Fisher has determined Shaun Hill gives the Rams a better chance of winning than Davis. Neither quarterback is fantasy relevant.

Description: Rams quarterback Austin Davis did not play particularly well, but he led St. Louis to a 13-10 victory over the 49ers in Week 9.
Insight: Davis completed 13-of-24 passes for just 105 yards. He also threw one touchdown versus two interceptions. We expect more yardage from Davis going forward, but Davis is still a low-end QB2.

Description: Rams quarterback Austin Davis was unable to continue his magic during Week 8 against the Chiefs.
Insight: After leading St. Louis to an opening-drive score. Davis was ineffective the rest of the afternoon. He finished the day 15-of-25 for 160 yards, one touchdown and one interception, and was also sacked a total of seven times. Davis is no more than a QB2.

Description: Rams quarterback Austin Davis was good at what they asked him to do.
Insight: Unfortunately for fantasy owners, that was be mistake free. He threw 21 times, mostly short, and completed 18 for 152 yards and two touchdowns. He was most importantly, mistake and sack free in leading the Rams to the victory.

Description: Rams quarterback Austin Davis finally looked like an undrafted free agent.
Insight: After having thrown for 702 yards and six touchdowns in his previous two games, he looked confused by the 49ers defense and finished 21-of-42 for 236 yards, one touchdown and one interception returned for a touchdown.

Insight: He'll be tested Monday night as he faces a 49ers defense which has yielded just 205.6 ypg over their first five contests. Only the Rams have yielded fewer yards per game through the air.

Description: Rams quarterback Austin Davis started at quarterback despite Shaun Hill being active and threw for 375 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions.
Insight: He did fumble twice and couldn't lead his team to a game-winning touchdown on the final drive, but fantasy owners should want him to continue under center.

Description: Rams quarterback Austin Davis will be the team's starting quarterback moving forward.
Insight: Coach Jeff Fisher gave Davis his vote of conidence, declaring there will be "no short hook." Davis is a QB2 moving forward, and could be a decent fill-in this week, against the Eagles.

Description: Rams quarterback Austin Davis threw for 327 yards and three touchdowns, both are career-highs for the rookie, but he also threw two interceptions as the Rams lost to the Cowboys in Week 3.
Insight: Even still, no one expected this much production from the rookie quarterback. It seems likely that Davis will remain the Rams starting quarterback, and he is on the fantasy radar, but really only in two-QB leagues or larger than 14-team leagues.

Description: Rams quarterback Austin Davis started Week 2 and was efficient in completing 22-of-29 passes for 235 yards.
Insight: Unfortunately, he didn't throw any touchdown passes, and his fantasy value was minimal. He'll need to put it into the end zone before fantasy owners will pay attention.

Description: Starter Shaun Hill was benched after producing scoring zero points in the first half and Austin Davis is under center in the third quarter.
