Sam Bradford Fantasy Football Punditry-Watch

Now that Sam Bradford has successfully played two consecutive games without a disaster the focus has moved, at least briefly, from his position as savior of the St. Louis Rams to his position as savior of fantasy football teams in deep leagues who focused a little too much on running backs and wide receivers in the early going.

And since the Rams have already shown that they're unlikely to hide Bradford behind Steven Jackson, fantasy pundits have a lot to talk about. Two sides of one coin:

At Roto Arcade Brad Evans thinks Bradford's "challenging the fantasy stigma [that] rookie quarterbacks are unreliable headaches", and declares him a "borderline starter in 12-team leagues." (Non-fantasy football note: He also thinks Donovan McNabb is going to carve the Rams' defense into bite-sized defense medallions.)

Bleacher Report, meanwhile, takes the Sam Bradford conundrum in a different direction entirely. Convinced that Bradford isn't confident in any of his other wide receivers—I don't know what gave them that idea...—and that the Rams will look to punish the Redskins' heretofore porous pass defense, they see Clayton getting the lion's share of another pass-heavy offensive afternoon.
