Fantasy matchup data does not always translate to success on the field. Fans of the St. Louis Rams, who finally have a few players worthy of some fantasy consideration, have found that to be particularly true. With that caveat, take this next tidbit of info for what it's worth.

The fantasy guru over at the National Football Post pointed out a few players capable of having a successful run based on their upcoming schedule. Rams rookie QB Sam Bradford is on that list.

The rookie from Oklahoma has thrown two touchdown tosses in three of his last six games and has completed over 70% of his pass attempts in each of his last two outings (55/74). If you need to re-tool the quarterback position on your fantasy roster, take a short-term look at Bradford, who will face three defenses (Denver, Arizona, Kansas City) over the next five weeks that rank in the top-nine in fantasy points surrendered to opposing quarterbacks.

Bradford's been a pleasant surprise to fantasy GMs for the same reason he's been a breath of fresh air to Rams fans: he's already starting to live up to his tremendous potential. 

On the field and in the NFL standings, Bradford's favorable fantasy matchups could have a big impact on the Rams season if the offense can score some points against those three opponents. Two of those games are on the road, but the Chiefs visit St. Louis.
