The Rams have selected a franchise quarterback in Sam Bradford, and I wouldn’t be a bit shocked if he opens this season under center for coach Steve Spagnuolo. However, I don’t think he’ll make an immediate impact in fantasy football.
Rookie quarterbacks rarely put up consistently good numbers, and the Rams have question marks on their offensive line. The team also lacks a solid wideout, as Laurent Robinson, Donnie Avery and Brandon Gibson are talented but still have much to prove at the NFL level.
At best, Bradford will be worth a late-round flier in seasonal formats as a No. 3 fantasy quarterback. He should receive more attention in keeper and dynasty leagues, however.
