This Week 7 fantasy football waiver wire update acknowledges one important fact: Sam Bradford speculators who drafted him early in the season have gotten burned by the St. Louis Rams' inability to convert some intermittently impressive Josh McDaniels plays into touchdowns, and Week 6 was no exception. The Rams had 424 net yards on offense, saw great games from both Bradford and Steven Jackson, and failed to score even a single touchdown on the deal. They only managed two field goal attempts!
For all that, Sam Bradford has shown what he's capable of when the offense is working as advertised, and it's at least worth a backup slot as you wait for the Rams' offense to regress back toward less-comical. If you've already got a mediocre quarterback as your starter—hi, Peyton Manning drafters—Bradford lets you play matchups like you skimped on, say, Team Defense, instead of the second most-important fantasy position in the entire game.
Which is nice.
Bradford might not be the budding superstar we were hoping for yet, but his flashes of brilliance have been enough to keep him on the fantasy football radar.
