Rams vs Seahawks: Sam Bradford Start Will Increase Rams Fantasy Football Impact
Before breaking into the fantasy implications of Bradford’s start, let’s take a moment to actually discuss Bradford’s injury: a left high-ankle sprain. This type of injury is often confused for the more common lateral ankle sprain, yet it is an entirely different monster.
Instead of simply stretching or tearing ankle ligaments by bending the ankle the wrong way, a high ankle sprain is sustained when the bone of the foot is forced up so that it separates the two bones of the lower leg. This is an incredibly painful injury that cannot be easily taped or physically supported to help it heal. It can take up to a year to heal fully, and often requires surgery.
By even attempting to play through this injury, Sam Bradford has demonstrated his toughness and his dedication to his team. Pain will lance through his leg with every step that he takes, and any pivoting or cutting motions he makes will be agonizing.
Having their starting quarterback under center should give the Rams offense a big boost. If Bradford can stay in the game, expect better fantasy production out of star wide receiver Brandon Lloyd and running back Steven Jackson than they turned out last week.
Sam Bradford’s personal fantasy impact should be minimal given that his status was questionable up until just hours before game time on a Monday night. For those who gambled, the bad news is that with a high ankle sprain there is no guarantee that Bradford will be able to play for the entire game.
