    St. Louis Rams

    Position
    QB
     
    Jersey
    7
    Name  Sam Bradford
    Born  11/8/1987
    Height  6-4
    Weight  224
    College  Oklahoma
    3/24/2015 3:40:00 PM
    Description: Quarterback Sam Bradford was the ""best young QB" the Eagles scouted coming out of college, according to Eagles owner Jeff Lurie, "probably since Peyton Manning."
    Insight: That said, it doesn't matter how good a quarterback he is, if he can't stay on the field. The Eagles could be putting up smoke screens to cover their continued interest for Marcus Mariota.
     
    3/10/2015 4:13:00 PM
    Description: Quarterback Sam Bradford has been traded to Philadelphia.
    Insight: Bradford has been injury prone, but when healthy is pretty accurate. Still, one can't believe the Eagles are ready to play next season with Bradford and Mark Sanchez as their quarterbacks. Look for more moves or them drafting a quarterback in April.
     
    8/24/2014 4:03:00 PM
    Description: According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is out for the season after an MRI revealed that he re-tore the ACL in his left knee. Shaun Hill is now the starting quarterback
    Insight: Bradford suffered the injury during Saturday's preseason game. He was entering a make-or-break season with St. Louis and now his future is up in the air. The former No. 1 overall pick will turn 27 in November. His injury is a blow to the fantasy value of St. Louis' pass-catchers (Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, Jared Cook and sleeper Brian Quick) and should result in the Rams giving more carries to Zac Stacy.
     
    8/23/2014 8:48:00 PM
    Description: Rams quarterback Sam Bradford left Saturday's preseason game against the Browns with a left knee injury.
    Insight: It is the same knee Bradford had surgically repaired last fall. He went into the locker room under his own power for a short examination, and it didn't look serious but the injury history has to worry Bradford owners. The quarterback was 4-for-9 for 77 yards before the injury.
     
    8/15/2014 2:48:00 PM
    Description: Rams quarterback Sam Bradford (knee surgery) is expected to play at least one quarter Saturday versus Green Bay.
    Insight: Bradford is attempting to come back from a torn ACL and this will be fantasy owners first chance to see if he is ready to play. Prior to the injury, Bradford had 1,687 yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions in seven games. A healthy Bradford certainly helps the fantasy value of his receivers.
     
    8/5/2014 9:54:00 PM
    Description: Rams quarterback Sam Bradford (knee surgery) is unlikely to play Friday, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com.
    Insight: Bradford is attempting to come back from a torn ACL, so the Rams are taking precautions. Prior to the injury, Bradford had 1,687 yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions in seven games. Jason La Canfora reported Friday that Bradford still doesn't look fully healthy, but he's expected to be ready for Week 1.
     
    8/4/2014 11:00:00 AM
    Description: Rams quarterback Sam Bradford (knee surgery) was "moving a little gingerly at times during practice" according to Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports.
    Insight: Bradford needs to be healthy if he is to maintain his starting status beyond 2014. Prior to his injury last season, Bradford threw for 1,687 yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions in seven games. Fantasy owners will have to watch his mobility and performance in preseason before setting his fantasy value.
     
    7/25/2014 11:30:00 AM
    Description: Rams quarterback Sam Bradford (knee surgery) appears to be ready to go for the start of training camp, according to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch report.
    Insight: Prior to his injury, Bradford threw for 1,687 yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions in seven games. While Bradford has struggled to live up to expectations, he's more than capable of delivering gaudy numbers if healthy, so definitely keep an eye on his progress in camp.

    Description: Rams quarterback Sam Bradford (knee surgery) is expected to be ready to participate in the team's minicamp this week. Source: Chris Wesseling, NFL.com.
    Insight: With a vote of confidence from head coach Jeff Fisher behind Bradford, the QB appears ready to return to action seven months after tearing the ACL in his left knee. Prior to his injury, Bradford threw for 1,687 yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions in seven games. While Bradford has struggled to live up to expectations, he's more than capable of delivering gaudy numbers if healthy, so definitely keep an eye on his progress this offseason.
     
    5/6/2014 5:48:00 PM
    Description: Rams coach Jeff Fisher reiterated on Tuesday that Sam Bradford is the team's starting quarterback, according to Tony Softli of 101 ESPN.
    Insight: Fisher went as far as saying Bradford is the reason he took the St. Louis coaching job. Prior to tearing his ACL last season, Bradford had 1,687 yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions in seven games. Due to the Robert Griffin III trade in 2012, the Rams have the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, but they're expected to trade it or spend it on an offensive lineman, not a QB.
     
    2/21/2014 3:45:00 PM
    Description: Rams coach Jeff Fisher said starting QB Sam Bradford will begin throwing in late May and early June.
    Insight: Hopefully, he sticks to that schedule and is available come the start of summer camp. Bradford was putting up solid stats until his season-ending injury. He was averaing 241 ypg with 14 TD passes and just four interceptions.
     
    2/18/2014 9:13:00 PM
    Description: Rams coach Jeff Fisher reiterated on ESPN's "Mike and Mike" Tuesday that Sam Bradford will be the team's starting quarterback in 2014.
    Insight: "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." Bradfordm, the 2010 No. 1 overall pick, had 1,687 yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions in the first seven games last season before tearing his ACL. He's entering a make-or-break season in 2014.
     
    1/17/2014 10:27:00 AM
    Description: Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is expected to be ready for training camp next summer, according to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch report.
    Insight: The 2013 season was a slight step back for Bradford who appeared to be blossoming into a viable fantasy QB option in 2012 (3,702 yards, 21 TD, 13 INT). He played well in seven games, but for the second time in four years missed a big portion of the season due to injury. The jury is still out on the 2010 No. 1 overall selection.
     
    10/21/2013 10:07:00 PM
    Description: Rams coach Jeff Fisher says that Sam Bradford will be the starter again when he returns from his torn ACL. SOURCE: Rams on Twitter
    Insight: That won't be until 2014. In the meantime, Kellen Clemens will handle the quarterback duties for St. Louis. John Skelton, Matt Leinart and David Carr, all scheduled to work out for the Rams this week, could be brought on as backups.
     
    10/21/2013 1:00:00 PM
    Description: NBC's Pro Football Talk is reporting that St. Louis QB Sam Bradford has a torn left ACL and will miss the remainder of the season.
    Insight: If true, Kellen Clemens would be the Rams' Week 8 starting quarterback. That would lower the fantasy value for all St. Louis receivers.
     
    10/20/2013 6:37:00 PM
    Description: St. Louis QB Sam Bradford is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his left knee and the team is concerned, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
    Insight: Bradford had to be carted off the field Sunday against the Panthers. Rams coach Jeff Fisher said after the game that Bradford was in "significant pain on the sideline." Kellen Clemens might have to start next Monday against the Seahawks.
     
    10/20/2013 4:07:00 PM
    Description: St. Louis QB Sam Bradford left Sunday's game against Carolina late in the fourth quarter due to a left leg injury.
    Insight: He was carted off the field and replaced by Kellen Clemens after completing 21-of-30 for 255 yards, one touchdown and one pick.
     
    Hot10/13/2013 7:16:00 PM
    Description: St. Louis QB Sam Bradford dished out three more touchdowns Sunday in a win over Houston.
    Insight: That gives Bradford six touchdowns to just one interception over the past two weeks. The yardage hasn't been there (just 117 yards this week) but if Bradford keeps piling on the touchdowns it won't matter.
     
    10/6/2013 6:33:00 PM
    Description: Rams quarterback Sam Bradford found the end zone three times in Week 5 against the Jaguars.
    Insight: It must have been nice to play Jacksonville after looking awful against the 49ers last Thursday. Despite Sunday's results, Bradford is not a trusted fantasy option, especially at Houston in Week 6.
     
    9/15/2013 6:24:00 PM
    Description: Rams QB Sam Bradford went off for 352 passing yards and two touchdowns Sunday in a loss to Atlanta.
    Insight: He wasn't particularly efficient (just 6.4 yards per attempt) but hey, points are points. Bradford is already up to 651 passing yards for the season to go along with five touchdowns. All signs are pointing to a breakout year for the former Oklahoma Sooner.
