Rams | Sam Bradford trade unlikely

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 14:17:21 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford will probably not be traded this offseason despite interest from the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills. As of Tuesday, Feb. 24, no teams have contacted the Rams about trading Bradford.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Bradford will be staying in St. Louis after all, though there is still plenty of time for that to change this offseason. Bradford remains a backup fantasy quarterback at best when healthy.

Bills | Sam Bradford not pursued by Bills

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 11:43:30 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is not being pursued by the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Buffalo is still certainly in need of a quarterback, but Bradford seems to be staying in St. Louis. Nonetheless, both Bradford and whoever the starting quarterback will be for the Bills should be considered no more than fantasy backups in 2015.

Browns | Cleveland interested in Sam Bradford

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 10:52:38 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has reportedly drawn interest from the Cleveland Browns, but Bradford will likely be staying with the Rams.

Fantasy Tip: It was originally believed that Bradford would have to compete for the starting quarterback position in St. Louis, but the tone has changed and Bradford still seems to firmly in the starting position. Still, he missed all of last year and missed about half of the 2013 season. He's a big injury risk and shouldn't be considered in drafts at this time.

Rams | HC in Sam Bradford's corner

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 11:30:02 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is coming back-to-back seasons of anterior cruciate ligament tears in his knees, but head coach Jeff Fisher is betting on Bradford to be the team's quarterback in 2015. Fisher said that Bradford remains ahead of schedule in his rehab and is working at the team's complex every day. Bradford won't be used any differently in training camp or the preseason in order to try and prevent another injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford hasn't been able to stay on the field in his young career. Because of that, there's no reason to trust him or invest in him as a QB2 in fantasy leagues this year, even if he shows good progress in training camp.

Rams | Losing Sam Bradford not the answer

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 13:04:47 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford may still have a future with the Rams after general manager Les Snead said Wednesday, Feb. 18, that deleting Bradford is not the answer. Snead reiterated that eliminating Bradford was not the answer when asked about trade rumors involving the injury-prone quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: No matter where he plays, Bradford has proven to be an injury risk. He's only played two full seasons in five years and has torn his anterior cruciate ligament twice in as many seasons. Even when healthy, his numbers aren't anything to write home about. He's a backup fantasy quarterback at best.

Rams | Sam Bradford can seek trade

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:10:17 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has permission to seek a trade. Bradford's agent can speak to other teams, but it will be difficult to find compensations to the Rams liking.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has seen his stock fall in recent years due to ACL injuries. A new team could rejuvenate his career and fantasy stock moving forward. Wait and see how this plays out before committing to him for your roster.

Jets | Sam Bradford on radar?

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 23:10:37 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is being watched by the New York Jets. Bradford has one year left on his contract with the Rams and carries a $16.58 million hit to the salary cap. The Jets cannot touch Bradford unless St. Louis cuts him and lets him hit free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has dropped in stature in the past couple seasons due to ACL injuries, so the best thing for him might be a change of scenery. His fantasy value has declined significantly, but one strong season could turn him around.

Rams | Sam Bradford has no competition right now

Sat, 14 Feb 2015 11:17:15 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford isn't facing any competition currently, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher had previously said that Bradford would have competition for the starting quarterback position, but said that competition isn't currently in the building.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has only played two full seasons since 2010 and has only played in seven games in two seasons. He's not a reliable starting fantasy quarterback, even if he would play a full season.

Rams | Sam Bradford expected to return

Sat, 14 Feb 2015 05:54:24 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is expected to return to the team next season and likely will be the starter if he is healthy next season. The team would like him to restructure his contract in order to lower his salary cap hit, but there has not been much movement in those talks.

Fantasy Tip: The team likely will add another quarterback this offseason, but it looks like Bradford will be the leading candidate for the starting job if he is able to recover from his second torn anterior cruciate ligament. Bradford probably will not be an option in fantasy drafts if he keeps the starting job.

Rams | Sam Bradford may be asked to rework deal

Sun, 08 Feb 2015 10:18:36 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford may be asked to restructure his contract this offseason, so the team can reduce his $12.985 million salary for 2015. Bradford counts $16.58 million against the salary cap next season, but the team could save $12.985 in cap space if Bradford is released.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Bradford will remain with the Rams or if he will be available in free agency. He may need to compete for the starting quarterback job if he stays with the Rams. Bradford probably should not be an option in fantasy drafts next season.

Rams | Rams want Sam Bradford back

Tue, 30 Dec 2014 15:42:27 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is wanted back by the team to compete for the starting quarterback position next season. However, head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear that nothing will be guaranteed for Bradford. Bradford continues to rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and he heads into an uncertain offseason. Fisher said the team plans to bring Bradford back at a reduced rate next year. He currently is scheduled to cost $16.58 million against the salary cap. Bradford plans to remain in St. Louis in the offseason to continue his rehab, and he said his knee feels better this time than the last time he had the same ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will enter 2015 without a guaranteed starting job, which should keep him off the radar of all fantasy football players.

Rams | QB competition to come in St. Louis

Tue, 30 Dec 2014 13:20:21 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford won't be guaranteed the starting quarterback position next season as head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear Tuesday, Dec. 30, that there will be a quarterback competition in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Again, if Bradford does retain the starting role, he'll be a low-end QB2 at best. He's not worth starting in seasonal leagues, especially considering his injury history.

Tue, 30 Dec 2014 13:09:07 -0800

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Bradford will remain the starting quarterback next season. The Rams could draft a quarterback or bring another one in through free agency. If he is starting next season, he'll be a QB2 at best.

Rams | Sam Bradford out for season

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 13:10:07 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for the season after an MRI revealed a torn left anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Zac Stacy will be relied upon even heavier with Shaun Hill as the quarterback. Stacy is a low-end RB2. Tavon Austin's stock could take a slight hit, but he remains a solid WR4. Kenny Britt is still worth a late-round flier as a WR5.
