Rams QB Sam Bradford says ankle healthy enough right now. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford says his ankle is good enough to play right now. Bradford played in just 10 games last season because of a high ankle sprain, but said Friday on "NFL AM" that the injury hasn't really caused him to miss any reps so far in training camp. The Rams are set to open their preseason on Sunday against the Colts.

Analysis: Right now, Bradford is a lower-end fantasy quarterback but it is encouraging to hear that he thinks his ankle is feeling better. He threw for more than 3,500 yards in 2010 before a setback last season. He is working under new coach Jeff Fisher and the Rams still have Steven Jackson, who is their most important player on offense. If Bradford stays healthy and clicks with the team's young receivers, the former No. 1 overall pick could be a sneaky grab on draft day.
