This is a fantasy post from Andy Behrens. I think he is a Rams fan. I hope he is right about us finally opening up the play book.
Calm, cool and collected, the No. 1 pick is challenging the fantasy stigma rookie quarterbacks are unreliable headaches. “Even keeled” and “in command” according to Mark Clayton, Bradford has amassed a respectable 16.5 fantasy points per game in standard formats (420-3-4). This week against a Washington secondary still licking its wounds after surrendering 497 yards and three scores to Schaub, the beaver-toothed youngster will likely gnaw on the visitors. The ‘Skins have allowed a QB-friendly 7.8 yards per attempt. Taking advantage of what the defense will give him, Bradford will take several shots downfield. Provided the Rams offensive line can protect the prized QB adequately, he should convert on at least a handful of those opportunities. To the five St. Louis fans in attendance, relax, Spags will remove the manacles this week. More desirable than Carson Palmer(notes) (at Car) and Joe Flacco(notes) (vs. Cle) in Week 3, tab the rook a borderline starter in 12-team leagues.
Fearless Forecast: 22-37, 248 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 2 interceptions, 18 fantasy points
