2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Sam Bradford, QB, St. Louis Rams

2010 Stats
  3512 yds.
  18 TDs
     15 INTs
2011 Projected
  3720 yds.
  21 TDs
     16 INTs

Bradford is coming off a very successful rookie season where he threw for over 3,500 yards and 18 touchdowns. He will be playing in a new offense this season, with the arrival of Josh McDaniels as the Rams new offensive coordinator. Bradford should be able to pick-up the offense reletively quick, so that shouldn't be an issue. The biggest issue for Bradford is the lack of playmakers at wide receiver for the Rams. Wide receivers Danny Amendola and Danario Alexander are good second-tier players, but nowhere near dynamic. Mark Clayton started well last season before hurting his knee and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui showed promise. The Rams did draft a couple of wide receivers in the 2011 NFL Draft, taking Boise State's Austin Pettis in the third round and Hawaii's Greg Salas in the fourth, but those guys won't have a huge impact this season. St. Louis also used its second round pick on Wisconsin tight end Lance Kendricks. The Rams are certainly trying to build a solid offensive foundation around Bradford, but don't expect fantasy football success just yet for Bradford (soon though).
