I know- you're thinking "WHO?!"
Undrafted FA from 2006. Bounced around from one team to another, till he stuck with the Rams in 2008.They desperately wanted another TE- they drafted Joe Klopfenstein and Dominique Byrd in 2006, but both had been released by the beginning of this season. Billy Bajema is a blocking specialist. Randy McMichael is the only receiving TE on the roster. With Laurent Robinson done for the season, Donnie Avery still struggling to get back from his preseason injury and few other pass-catching options, Fells could get more looks.
Now, here's another thinking that makes this even more interesting- on some sites (nfl, cbs), he's listed as a FB. Who's the back-up to SJax? Gado? Darby? Or the 6'4", 272 lb Fells? I have no clue, but in my deep, deep, deep leagues, I'm gambling.
On another note, as a backup pass-catcher, he could get even more looks if backup QB Kyle Boller starts for the perennially injured Marc Bulger.
B) lack of other options;
C) too much Kool-Aid?
