Lloyd’s value on the rise in St. Louis

NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora is reporting that the St. Louis Rams will acquire Brandon Lloyd in a deadline deal with the Denver Broncos. It’s a move that has major fantasy implications for a number of players, none greater than Lloyd and Sam Bradford.

Lloyd, the top-scoring wide receiver in fantasy football last year, is now someone to target in fantasy trades of your own. Reunited with Rams OC Josh McDaniels, who was the head coach in Denver during Lloyd’s breakout season, the veteran should see an uptick in value down the stretch. It also helps that he doesn’t need to learn the offense. Bradford’s stock is also on the rise, as he now has a legitimate option in the pass attack.

Available in over 30 percent of NFL.com leagues, Bradford is also worth a look off the waiver wire.

In Denver, Eric Decker becomes the top option in the pass attack for Tim Tebow. While the team will favor a run-first offense, Decker should see an uptick in targets — grab him if he’s a free agent. Eddie Royal will have added value as well, but the names I’d remember is Demaryius Thomas. He’s coming back from an Achilles’ injury and could earn a starting role sooner than later. The Georgia Tech product is worth an add in leagues with 12-plus teams.
