Sam Bradford fantasy football bubble bursts after Bears problems

Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams host a confident Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 4, which could spell trouble for Bradford's fantasy owners.

US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Sam Bradford's Week 2 performance against the Washington Redskins seems like a long time ago now, especially to his fantasy owners. That's because the third-year pro followed up one of the best performances of his career with perhaps one of his worst in Week 3.

Bradford took a beating Week 3 against the Chicago Bears, getting sacked 6 times while passing for a mere 152 yards, 2 picks and no touchdowns. This came only a week after lighting up the Washington Redskins for 310 yards and 3 touchdowns. In Sunday's Week 4 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks (who themselves just sacked Aaron Rodgers 8 times in one half), Bradford is a risky fantasy play to say the least.

Walterfootball.com lists Bradford as their No. 27 quarterback out of 30 starters for Week 3, finding himself in the company of Blaine Gabbert (No. 26) and Mark Sanchez (No. 28).

Bradford's overall numbers through three games are promising, and give his fantasy owners some hope going forward. He has an 87.4 QB rating and has completed 64.2 percent of his passes. But this week, against a confident Seattle defense, could be a rough one.
