Fantasy Football: Danario Alexander, Sam Bradford Questions While St. Louis Rams Offense Gels

Let's face it—if you're worried about Danario Alexander or Sam Bradford's fantasy football credentials—really about anybody's fantasy credentials but Steven Jackson's, as St. Louis Rams go—you're in a league so deep that their problems are par for the course. But both of them—and Danny Amendola, who finally has a touchdown catch, and is on pace for 90 receptions this year—have specific questions worth talking about.

Bradford, of course, is key to the receivers, and he followed up one of his best games of the season with last week's performance, which was considerably more valuable in fantasy football (thanks to the two short touchdown passes) than it managed to be in real life. Steven Jackson's last three games have been his best of the season, and the Rams have brought him as high as 29 carries, but Bradford will only be wanting for attempts if he's as scattershot as he was last week. He hasn't thrown an interception in two games, after throwing eight in his first five games; if he can continue to avoid mistakes like that while becoming more accurate, those 40-attempt games the Rams have foisted upon him could prove remarkably valuable.

They could prove valuable to the hearty, perhaps foolhardy owners of the Rams' receivers, as well. Amendola picked up 12 receptions for 95 yards in the game in which Mark Clayton was lost for the season, but since then he's caught just six passes for 48 yards. Danario Alexander caught one ball on just two targets last week, after his debut performance, which was cause for a questioning editorial for Bernie MIklasz; whatever his ability, whatever his level of recovery from his knee problems, he's a weapon unduplicated in the Rams' offense, and it would be odd to see the Rams continue to avoid utilizing him.

Somebody has to catch all these passes Bradford is throwing, but only if he's completing them.
