Stock Watch: Is Sam Bradford outta gas?
Updated: December 21, 2010, 3:16 PM ET
In a Week 15 that saw many young quarterbacks step up and get significant playing time, the one with the worst performance was not Tim Tebow, John Skelton, Matt Flynn or even Joe Webb. Rather, St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford delivered a lowly three-point fantasy performance against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, despite playing on his home field in a game that was of the utmost importance for his team; with three subpar outings in succession for Bradford, it's past time for fantasy owners to look elsewhere.
Bradford is fantasy's No. 20 quarterback for the season, but that means little. After all, Donovan McNabb is 19th. I sure liked Bradford a lot more a month ago when he was delivering one double-digit fantasy outing after another, showing poise, maturity and consistency beyond expectations. However, in the past three weeks, Bradford has thrown nary a touchdown pass, with five interceptions and a pair of fumbles. He has 19 fantasy points in three weeks, not good enough to make a fantasy owner smile, and even with nice matchups remaining against the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, I just can't trust him.
To see whose fantasy value is rising and whose is falling heading into Week 16, and why, you must be an ESPN Insider.
