St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford turned into a fantasy stud on Sunday afternoon against the Denver Broncos, He threw for a career-best 308 yards and three touchdowns. That was good enough for 24 points in ESPN fantasy leagues.
Billy Bajema turned in an unexpected real-game and fantasy impact with two touchdowns and 32 yards. But that’s what happens when the Broncos’ secondary forgets how to play. Bajema was wide open on both touchdown receptions. Don’t expect another performance like that any time soon, but for those who had him consider yourselves extremely lucky.
Rookie receiver Danario Alexander didn’t score a touchdown, but he did rack up 95 yards, good for nine points. Danny Amendola did his damage in the air (41 yards) and on the ground (48).
As for the Denver Broncos, the usual suspects of Kyle Orton (347 yards, three TDs) and Brandon Lloyd (76 yards, 2 TDs) showed up. Receiver Eddie Royal turned in a solid fantasy week with 20 yards rushing, 74 receiving yards and a touchdown. Running back Knowshon Moreno was a fantasy threat on the ground (58 yards, 1 TD) and in the air (62 yards), totaling 15 points (he had a fumble).
Fantasy owners should have stayed clear of the Broncos’ defense, which wound up with -5 points this week.
