The bad news for fantasy football sleeper-hunters who've been stalking Danario Alexander all year is that he had just two receptions for 20 yards in the St. Louis Rams' 19-6 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. The good news is that he was not carted off the field at any point. Targeted frequently early in the game, the Rams used Alexander less as they pulled away from the Cardinals, showing just how preoccupied they are with his health.â†µ
The Rams have a much tougher schedule from here forward—they'll face the New Orleans Saints, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Seattle Seahawks over the next four weeks—and that bodes well for Danario Alexander's playing time. It's one thing to spot him when Steven Jackson and the Cardinals' quarterbacks seem to be doing all that's necessary to beat Arizona, but the Rams will need all the firepower they can get against the rest of their schedule. That means a lot of daring plays from Sam Bradford will be necessary to keep up, and most of the downfield work will probably go to Alexander.
And that's where the good news comes in: The Rams' primary concern with Danario Alexander is, of course, to win games. But he'll help them win the most games if they can keep him healthy for the last four games of the season.â†µ
