Sam Bradford went 26-for-39 passing for 275 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's tie between the St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers. Bradford found 10 different receivers on the day, finding Brian Quick and Austin Pettis for scores.
Sunday's outing was Bradford's third with multiple touchdown passes. It was also his third game without an interception this season.
Fantasy Impact: Bradford's big day was even more impressive considering it came against a vaunted Niners defense. He has otherwise been a quiet fantasy option this season, so he probably didn't help many fantasy teams except those in deeper two-quarterback leagues.
Bradford has been steady throughout the season, even if he hasn't put up monster numbers. It was nice to see him enjoy a statistically outstanding game. Until he puts together consecutive big performances, he shouldn't be considered a regular starting option in standard leagues, however. With that said, you could do a lot worse.
