News: St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher has benched Davis and will go back to veteran Shaun Hill for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. Impact: Davis had two interceptions and lost a fumble in the fourth quarter in Sunday's 31-14 loss at Arizona. Hill began the season as the replacement for Sam Bradford, who was sidelined for the second straight year with a knee injury. However, Hill injured his thigh in the opener. (STATS, 12:51pm)

News: Head coach Jeff Fisher announced Wednesday that Shaun Hill will start Sunday against the Broncos in Davis' place, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Impact: It was reported Tuesday that Davis would hold onto his job despite a rough couple games, but Fisher apparently changed his mind, and will go with Hill this week instead. Davis could reclaim the starter's job at some point later this season, but for now, consider him the Rams' backup.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis will remain the starting quarterback in St. Louis, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Impact: Davis has had a rough few weeks, but has not done enough to make coach Jeff Fisher turn to Shaun Hill yet. The road doesn't get much easier next week against Denver, but the possibility of a shootout could lead to inflated fantasy numbers.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis completed 17-of-30 passes for 218 yards, with one touchdown and a pair of interceptions in Sunday's 31-14 loss at Arizona. He was sacked six times, and also lost a fumble in the fourth quarter that was returned for a touchdown. Impact: The Rams actually led late in the second half, but Davis struggled in the fourth quarter, committing several turnovers, including an interception that was returned 30 yards for a touchdown. The interception wasn't necessarily Davis' fault, as the ball went off of Kenny Britt's hands, but the young QB hasn't played well lately. He did show some upside during a two-game stretch early in the season, throwing for 702 yards and six scores, but he's been mediocre in five contests since, failing to top 240 passing yards, while posting just a 6:6 TD:INT ratio. The recent loss of Brian Quick to a season-ending shoulder injury certainly hasn't helped things, but Davis' slide began before that. He'll have another tough matchup next week against Denver, although he might post respectable fantasy numbers trying to keep up with Peyton Manning and company.(RotoWire, )
