Sam Bradford nearly sets career high in passing; fantasy owners rejoice

Dilip Vishwanat

With 352 passing yards and three touchdowns, the Rams quarterback had a big game Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford threw for 352 yards on 32-for-55 passing Sunday, adding three touchdowns and one interception as his team fell to the Atlanta Falcons 31-24. The yardage was the second highest of Bradford's career, behind only a 377-yard outing in a 36-22 loss to the Vikings last Dec. 16.

Bradford added 25 rushing yards on three carries. He targeted 11 different receivers Sunday, including at least 8 each to Chris Givens, Austin Pettis, and Tavon Austin.

Fantasy impact: Bradford was more efficient a week ago, with a 71.1 completion percentage versus only 58.2 this week, but he threw for 53 more yards and an extra touchdown this week. He is owned in only 47 percent of Yahoo! fantasy leagues, but considering three of the team's next four games are against Dallas, San Francisco, and Houston, it's possible this week is the high-water mark for Bradford.

That said, a receiving corps that includes Givens, Austin (two touchdowns Sunday), Pettis, and the hot-in-Week-1 Jared Cook is the best group of pass-catchers Bradford has had in his career. If they can develop, this offense might become a force to be reckoned with.
