When the Rams pulled off their blockbuster trade of Sam Bradford to the Eagles for Nick Foles back in the offseason, they also sent a seventh-round pick to the Texans to re-acquire Case Keenum.

On Tuesday, Rams coach Jeff Fisher announced that Keenum has "locked up" the No. 2 quarterback spot behind Foles.

"He just has a good feel for offense and timing and release and is a natural athlete," Fisher said. "Since the trade he's been able to sit here and really, really grasp the offense, so he has a good feel for what we're doing."

Keenum, who started 10 games over the past two seasons for the Texans, has impressed the Rams throughout training camp and in the three preseason games.

He has completed 20 of 34 passes for 255 yards with one touchdown and a QB rating of 92.2.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Sam Bradford is coming into a QB-friendly Eagles system that has seen Michael Vick, Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez put up serviceable fantasy numbers under HC Chip Kelly. Bradford has a fairly strong arm and is a good fit for the Kelly's offense due to his accuracy. While the aforementioned QBs have played well, the Eagles are looking for a QB to not leave plays on the field and the hope is Bradford's accuracy prevents that. Overall, he has looked good in camp so far.

Fantasy Downside
Bradford's injuries are a big issue for the Eagles and for fantasy owners. Those who take a chance on him will have to keep in mind he has had two ACL injuries and didn't get to play a regular season game last year. Rust could be an issue as the team is taking it very easy on him through the early stages of camp.

Bottom Line
If you're looking to wait at the QB position, Bradford could be your guy. There is some upside there if you're not afraid of the injury potential. Bradford is our QB16, so the risk is minimized as he isn't likely to be drafted as a QB1 option.
