La Canfora: Rams could get something for Sam Bradford


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/14/2014) CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora floated the idea of the Rams trading quarterback Sam Bradford to several NFL executives, all of whom believe the team could get "a strong return" for him in trade.

La Canfora made it clear he's not reporting the Rams are trying to get something for Bradford, but that he's speculating that they could. The Rams have previously said they're committing to Bradford for this season. Bradford is coming off of a torn ACL. 


Sam Bradford facing make-or-break year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) For Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, 2014 is a make-or-break year, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Bradford showed improvement last year before suffering a season-ending knee injury, posting a career-high 90.9 passer rating, but still has a lot to prove, the report said.

"This will be Bradford's 3rd season with [Brian] Schottenheimer as the OC. If things aren't clicking in Year III  ... then when?" the paper said.

Bradford is signed through 2015. He's owed $17.6 million this year and $16.5 million next year.


Sam Bradford could start throwing in May


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead both said positive things in regards to quarterback Sam Bradford on Friday.

Fisher said Bradford, who suffered a torn ACL last season, is scheduled to start throwing in late May and early June during OTA workouts, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

And Snead said Bradford remains the Rams quarterback moving forward and that contract extension talks are "ongoing and active," reports ESPN. Bradford is under contract for the next two seasons.


Jeff Fisher backs Sam Bradford


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher told ESPN that Sam Bradford will be the starting quarterback in 2014 and still has the chance to earn a contract extension. Bradford is coming back from last year's torn ACL.

"Sam's doing great with the rehab," Fisher said. "He's really excited. He took on a leadership role last year and he's maintained that and he's our quarterback, and we've said that."

Fisher would not commit, however, to a new contract for Bradford, but he didn't rule it out. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora reported that Bradford is unlikely to get a long-term deal, and he's due $27 million over the next two years.

"We talk about extensions with all our players under contract," Fisher said. "Whether or not we do so with him, I don't know where all this came from, but Sam's our quarterback. He's going to be under center."


La Canfora: Rams not expected to extend Sam Bradford's deal


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is not expected to get a contract extension, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora.

LaCanfora reports that a source says the Rams are open to an extension for Bradford, who is due $27 million over the next two years. But a longer deal would still be a surprise to many because adding guaranteed money beyond the current deal would make it cumbersome for the team to part with Bradford.

Bradford is coming off a torn ACL from last season but is expected to make a full recovery in time for the start of the 2014 season.


Rams looking to add quarterback in draft


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) The Rams are unlikely to draft a quarterback in the first round, but are interested in taking a quarterback somewhere in the draft, general manager Les Snead told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Starter Sam Bradford is coming off a torn ACL, and backup Kellen Clemens is an impending free agent.

Sam Bradford: 'I think we're close'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, who's recovering from ACL surgery, likes what he saw from the offense over the second half of the season. "The way that we were able to establish the run and get the running game going on offense, and then set up some of the play-action stuff," Bradford told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I felt like our younger guys really came along, especially towards the end.

"You look at what Sted (Stedman Bailey) was able to do. You know, his role increased as the season went along. I think Tavon (Austin) became more comfortable, obviously before his injury. And Zac (Stacy) played tremendous, not only running the football but being able to come in and handle all the protections and being able to hold up on third down. That's not easy. That's tough on a young guy.

"So I definitely think that this football team made some strides and got better as the year went along."

Bradford said there's no reason the Rams, who finished 7-9, can't make the playoffs in 2014.

"I think we're close," he said. "Like I said earlier, I think it's a matter of us being more consistent and playing to our fullest potential each week, and not having those drops where we don't perform that way some weeks. But you look at some of our wins this year, some of the teams that we beat. Beat New Orleans who was a playoff team. Beat Indy who was a playoff team.

"So it's not far off. I think everyone saw that we have the talent to compete and to play with anyone. It's just a matter of us just finishing a few more games."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford "was in significant pain on the sideline" Sunday, after he was forced to leave Week 7 against the Panthers with a knee injury, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Bradford had to be carted off the field as a result of the injury and could not return. The team did not announce the extent of the injury, but did say he will be evaluated further later Sunday night, when the team returns to St. Louis.  


Sam Bradford leaves loss with leg injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford had to leave Sunday's game against the Panthers in the fourth quarter, after going down with an apparent left leg injury.

Bradford was in the game with the Rams down 30-15 when the injury occurred, and he had to be carted off the field. He was unable to return to the game, finishing with 255 yards on 21 of 30 passing, with one touchdown and one interception.

The extent of the injury is not yet known, as the Rams did not give an update on his status by the end of the game. Bradford was replaced by Kellen Clemens at quarterback, and at this point there is no way of knowing if the injury will affect him in Week 8 against the Seahawks. 


Sam Bradford facing rough matchup Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is coming off a strong Fantasy stretch in which he's thrown three ouchdowns in each of the past two games, but that could end this week against the Panthers.

Carolina has held opposing quarterbacks to just 10.20 Fantasy points per game, which rates as best in the league. Through five games, the team has allowed four passing touchdowns to eight nterceptions.

Bradford is coming off his best stretch of season. Over the past two games, he's been able to carve up the Jaguars and the Texans, tossing six touchdowns to no interceptions. Bradford has credited his recent success to the emergence of running back Zac Stacy, who has picked up close to 80 yards in his two starts. While Stacy's running has helped the team get close to the end zone, Bradford has been vulturing his scores. Four of Bradford's six touchdowns during this period have come inside the five. 

Against the Panthers, the team could take a more conservative approach when they get close considering Carolina's strong passing defense. 


Sam Bradford efficient in blowout win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford didn't rack up a ton of yards in Week 6 against the Texans, but his three touchdowns went a long way in a 38-13 blowout win.

The Rams rarely needed to rely on Bradford in the game, but he made plays when needed. He completed 12 of 16 passes for 117 yards, while throwing all three of his touchdowns from within 5 yards. He found Cory Harkey for a 2-yard score in the first quarter, followed by another 2-yard score to Lance Kendricks, before capping off the day with a 4-yard pass to Brian Quick.

Though the yardage is by far his lowest total of the season, Bradford now has three games with three touchdown passes; that matches his total for the first three NFL seasons. Bradford has 1,432 yards on the season, with 13 touchdowns and only three interceptions in six games.

The Rams' next game is set for Week 7 against the Panthers next Sunday.


Sam Bradford could struggle in Week 6


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford enters Week 6 against the Texans riding high on his best game of the season. Unfortunately, he could come crashing back down to earth against one of the league's best passing defenses.

Bradford is off to one of the best starts of his career, passing for 10 touchdowns and just three interceptions through the first five games of the season. Unfortunately, the Texans have come roaring back from a slow start against the pass, especially over the last three games.

The Texans have allowed just one passing touchdown over the past three games, while holding their opponents to just 135.7 yards per game. As a result, opposing quarterbacks are averaging just 15.6 Fantasy points per game against the Texans.

Bradford can be a useful Fantasy option at this point, but it is best to leave him sidelined for better choices in Week 6. 


Sam Bradford throws for three touchdowns


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford didn't put forth the best statistics during the Week 5 home game against Jacksonville. Bradford did lead the Rams to a win, however. 

Bradford didn't rack up a lot of yardage as he averaged just 6.5 yards per completion. He went 19 of 34 for just 222 yards in the game, but managed three touchdown passes and no interceptions for a QB rating of 105.3. 

Bradford hit Lance Kendricks for a 16-yard touchdown in the second quarter and followed that by hitting Austin Pettis about 10 minutes later for a 4-yard TD. Bradford finished his day by finding Pettis for a 31-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to put the game away. 

Bradford also rushed five times for 4 yards in the game. He has 10 touchdowns this season compared to just three interceptions for the Rams. St. Louis gets set to play at Houston Week 6. 


Which Sam Bradford will step up Sunday?


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford averaged well over 300 yards and 2.5 touchdowns per game after his first two games of this season. He's averaging just 221 yards and one TD in his last two games as he's taken a step back after three straight losses.

Bradford had five touchdown passes and two picks in his first two games and has two TDs and one INT in his last two as he gets set to play at home against lowly Jacksonville Week 5 on Sunday. The Jaguars, who Bradford has never before faced, are giving up the 10th-most Fantasy points per game to opposing QBs this season.

In fact, although they haven't allowed more than 260 passing yards to any one QB thus far, the Jaguars have allowed nine touchdown passes in four games compared to picking off just two passes. Russell Wilson and Tarvaris Jackson combined for 331 yards with five TDs and one pick Week 3.

There is no double for Fantasy owners that Bradford will have a better game Sunday than he's been having recently. That said, Fantasy owners can still consider Bradford just a solid No. 2 Fantasy QB for Week 5.

Sam Bradford flails through big loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford struggled through his worst game of the season Thursday, in a 35-11 Week 4 loss to the 49ers.

Bradford completed just 19 of 41 passes for 202 yards in the game, with a pair of turnovers. He turned the ball over once on an interception, and had a couple others dropped by the 49ers' defense. Bradford also fumbled once, one of five times he was sacked in the game.

The lone bright spot for Bradford came late in the fourth quarter, when he found tight end Lance Kendricks for a 6-yard touchdown pass, his seventh of the season.

Bradford has completed 58.8 of his passes on the season now, for 1,093 yards, with seven touchdowns and three interceptions. He will try to bounce back in Week 5, when the Rams take on the Jaguars. 


Sam Bradford looking to keep rolling


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford seems to have put it all together through the first three games of the season, but he faces a very tough test as he tries to keep it up in Week 4 against the 49ers Thursday.

The 49ers have only been a middle-of-the-road defense against quarterbacks so far, allowing 18.7 Fantasy points per game. That number is inflated a bit by one big game, however, as Aaron Rodgers accounted for 30 of the 56 Fantasy points surrendered during his Week 1 dismantling. They have held each of their last two opponents in check, and will look to do so with Bradford as well.

Bradford has had a bit of success against the Rams in his career, having thrown for four touchdowns and 259.8 yards per game in four meetings without an interception. However, those numbers are merely solid, which is about what we expect in Week 4. Consider Bradford a low-end starting option for Thursday's game. 


Sam Bradford again pads stats in fourth quarter


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford was 12-of-21 with 115 yards and a touchdown through three quarters in the team's Week 3 loss to the Cowboys, but finished 29-of-48 for 240 yards after another offensive burst in the game's waning moments, trying to play catch-up. 

Most of Bradford's fourth quarter success came in hurry-up mode -- as has been the case for most of this season. However, Bradford's passing yards came from a series of shorter passes to Lance Kendricks and his running backs, and St. Louis never really threatened to score. 

Bradford was also sacked six times on Sunday after not being sacked in his previous four games combined. The Rams played without tackle Rodger Saffold, who was injured in Week 2. 

St. Louis has a quick turnaround for Week 4, as they host San Francisco on Thursday night. 


Sam Bradford set up for decent Week 3


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/17/2013) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has averaged 325.5 yards over his first two games this season, throwing for five touchdowns and two interceptions, while putting up about 27.5 points per game. And his Week 3 opponent, the Dallas Cowboys, have given up the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks in 2013 (31), including six total touchdowns.

It's important to note, however, that much of Bradford's success has come late in games this season. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch points out that Bradford's passer rating in the first half of games is 82.3, with one touchdown and an interception, while his second half rating is 101.2 with four touchdowns and an interception. And to get even more specific, his fourth quarter rating is 113.6 with three touchdowns and no interceptions. Much of this can be attributed to a hurry-up offense that most of the offense prefers. The problem here is that the coaches want to stick with their style and keep the hurry-up confined to the later parts of games in which they fall behind.  

If the Cowboys lead late, we can expect to see more of the no-huddle. If it's a tight game, however, we may see Bradford stuck in the traditional, conservative offense, which will likely hold his numbers back. 

This is all assuming, of course, that these quotes aren't part of a big ploy by the team to make the Cowboys think they won't be running the hurry-up.

On my teams, I am keeping Bradford on the bench, in fear that they team goes back to their conservative style, hangs tough with Dallas, and never gets to run the hurry-up offense. Our rankings back this up, with Bradford inching closer to the top 12, but just not there quite yet.
