Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB position.

Following a very disappointing injury-plagued 2011, Bradford rebounded nicely, finishing as the 17th-best fantasy passer in most scoring systems. His passing yardage and scoring strike numbers were both the second-best of his career. Heading into 2013, Bradford is facing a make-or-break season, but there are plenty of reasons for optimism. St. Louis is planning to utilize a “high octane” passing attack. The team also upgraded Bradford’s supporting cast during the offseason, signing new starting left tackle Jake Long and speedy new starting tight end Jared Cook. First-round pick Tavon Austin is a diminutive-but-electric playmaker who will replace the departed Danny Amendola in the slot. Two familiar faces from 2012, speedy second-year pro Chris Givens and second-year pro Brian Quick, will have much bigger roles in the offense. Bradford has a great chance to set new career-high numbers across the board. With no proven running back available to replace the departed Steven Jackson (Falcons), Bradford may end up throwing more than expected. He definitely has upside as a fantasy QB2.
