Rams QB Sam Bradford looking to regain rookie form


Rams QB Sam Bradford looking to regain rookie form

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is working with his new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer to correct what they refer to as Bradford's "Cabin Fever" in the pocket. The third year quarterback has been sacked 70 times in 26 career games and rather than keeping his eyes downfield, he often is tentative and anticipating a collapse of the pocket. Bradford is on his third OC in three years. "It's part of my job to help the protection and get the ball out of my hands and make sure that, even if it's not a sack, I'm eliminating the unnecessary hits," Bradford said.

Fantasy Analysis:

After almost universal consideration as a sleeper last season, Bradford can be had on the cheap very late in drafts. In some shallow league formats, he may go undrafted. The Rams struggled to keep pace with the league and it's hard to imagine they don't improve in some capacity. For those looking to take a flier on Bradford in the later rounds, try to ensure you've got a locked-in starter at quarterback like Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady. You don't want to have to lean on Bradford or waiver wire fodder.

You probably don't want Brady and Bradford since they have the same bye week, but maybe that's just me.
