Week 6 - Bradford threw for 141 yards, 2 TD, and 1 INT in week 5 against the Cardinals. He is one of the lowest QB2 heading into week 6, and shouldn’t be started in very many formats.
Week 5 - Bradford continues to plod along in 2012, and he threw for 221 yards 0 TD’s and 1 INT in week 4 against the Seahawks. He is a borderline backup QB in 2 QB formats. In standard 1 QB formats he shouldn’t be a part of your fantasy league plans.
Week 4 - The mediocrity turned to out and out poor QB play in week 3, as Bradford managed just 152 yards passing on 18 for 35, 0 TD/ 2 INT. Week 4 will see the Rams taking on the solid Seahawks defense, and Bradford is only an option in deep QB2 formats that have a player on a bye week. In other words, leave Bradford on waivers or the bench in 98% of leagues this Sunday.
Week 2 – Bradford picked right up where he left off in 2011, posting mediocre stats against the Lions in week 1. Sam is not a recommended QB1 or QB2 for week 2 of the fantasy football season.
Week 1 – The first week of the NFL season will show fantasy owners a lot about Sam Bradford and the Rams, as they will be involved in a shootout with the Detroit Lions. The Lions had the 22nd overall passing defense a season ago, so there are certainly some holes on that side of the ball, and we will be looking to see if Bradford can exploit those as he starts his 3rd NFL season. For now, he remains a low QB2 play, or a backup QB in 1 QB formats.
Sam Bradford has been less than impressive his first 2 seasons in the NFL. With new head coach Jeff Fisher, the Rams don’t figure to take as many shots down the field, and play it safe with their young QB to get his confidence up. We see 20 TD’s this year for Bradford, but less than impressive numbers in the passing game.
Sam Bradford career statistics:
2012 Projections – 16 games – 4124 Pass Yards – 33 TD’s – 14 INT’s – 31 Rush Yards – 0 Rush TD’s – 3 Fum Lost
