After a stellar rookie season, St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is going through a sophomore slump.
In his eight games played this season, Bradford has thrown for 1,768 yards, five touchdowns and five interceptions. Although his season has been far from impressive, Bradford has a chance to be a decent fantasy start this week against the Arizona Cardinals.
In Week 9, Bradford posted decent numbers in the loss against the Cardinals, throwing for 255 yards and one interception. While he didn't throw any touchdown passes, Bradford still played well enough to give his team a chance to win. However, that isn't good enough when it comes to fantasy football.
So why take a chance on Bradford this week?
For one, Bradford is benefiting in a big way with the play of receiver Brandon Lloyd. In just five games with the Rams, Lloyd has caught 26 passes for 322 yards and three touchdowns. He has single-handedly made this offense a vertical threat, thus helping Bradford become even more of a dangerous quarterback.
With Lloyd playing great in his short time with the Rams, Bradford's matchup against the Cardinals looks even more appealing. In addition, Arizona has let up the 13th most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.
Give Bradford a shot on Sunday as he is sure to play well against the league's 27th-ranked pass defense.
