Fantasy Football Week 9 Advice: Sam Bradford Is Risky, Steven Jackson Is Solid

Here's to hoping your fantasy team isn't dependent on the health of St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford. The status of the franchise cornerstone for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals has been up in the air for the better part of the week. If Bradford does play, the experts at numberFire don't expect big things from the ailing QB, and in fact they have backup QB Jay Feeley with similar projected stats in the event he plays.

After a big week by Steven Jackson against the Saints, the Rams offense should flow through Jackson on Sunday. He is expected to have approximately 100 combined yards and a TD. WR Brandon Lloyd might not be a great play until Bradford is completely healthy again, but he's probably the best bet on the roster if you are in a pinch at the position.

For the Cardinals, backup QB John Skelton isn't expected to do much against the Rams defense, so it might not be a terrible idea to start the Rams unit and hope for some sloppy QB play.

Below are numberFire's projections for Rams players on Sunday:
