Why I’m sticking with Sam Bradford

I was graciously invited to be part of a 12-man league this year, and I graciously accepted the invite.  It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to play in a fantasy football league. When you’re getting a Master’s, you just don’t have the time it takes to play competitively in a fantasy league without getting made fun of. I ended up picking up Sam later in the draft this year because I think he is going to have a solid year, despite a slow start in his game yesterday.

Here are a few of my thoughts on why I’m holding on to Sam Bradford and why I think he is going have a big year and rack up those fantasy points.

  • Chip Kelly’s offense has a better chance of protecting Sam Bradford than the Rams ever did.
  • Despite Sam Bradford’s slow 1st half, he threw for 336 yards and 2 touchdowns (1 not counting)
  • He looked really comfortable for his first regular season game in 2 years
  • He was able to rally the second half against a fired up Atlanta defense (not last year’s defense)
  • The Eagles’ strength of schedule is ranked 23rd having a record of 121-134-1 (.475)

There is always a chance of him getting injured, as is true for any pro player; just ask fantasy players that picked up Dez Bryant and T.Y. Hilton. But I think Sam Bradford has as big a chance of having a great year as any.

I’ll end with this. I bet I am much happier than the person I beat this week, with Sam Bradford on my team while he has Peyton Manning on his.
