    Great piece! I’ve been high on Bailey since the draft, and thought he landed in a pretty good spot in StL. While I think his usage could increase, I think we’ve seen what Tavon’s role is going to be. I’ve never been very high on Givens, so while he probably doesn’t end up more than a WR2 at best for fantasy I could absolutely see Bailey getting the WR1 or co-WR1 role in that offense this year or next.

      Thank you! I agree that Bailey has what it takes to be the top wide out in St. Louis, hopefully he gets the chance to prove it!

        great article Ty. I was also high on Stedman (I see the nickname Studman in his future) and your insight only added to my interest. The cool thing is I think he is one of the few who will truly fly under the radar until season starts due to offensive (pun intended) mess in STL. I was wondering if you could share more info/detail about targets/splits for when 1st part of 2013 when bradford was healthy? Another words, did they run alot of 3 wide sets, and who were the 3 wides? (givens, pettis, tavon )? versus when bailey played down the stretch? just trying to figure out depth chart/opportunity heading into training camp…

        I quickly checked ourlads and they have givens and pettis in 2 wide, with cook at TE, and quick and tavon has backups, with stedman 3rd string.

    Bailey is still a guy you can get for damn near free. Drafted him last year when I could. I just hope he gets the opportunity. If we use last season as a gauge, it looks like he will get a lot of PT early.

    Nice article. Like the comps!
