Rams coach Jeff Fisher has confirmed that, indeed, quarterback Sam Bradford has been lost for the year, re-tearing the ACL that he first tore in October 2013. Now, with Bradford done, the Rams will hand the ball to backup Shaun Hill.
“Shaun’s our guy,” Fisher told reporters. “We brought him here. He’s got experience. We’ve got all the confidence in the world in him.”
Hill, 34, enters his 13th season in the NFL. His most extensive work came in 2010, starting 10 games for the Lions. For his career, Hill has a 61.9-percent completion percentage, 41, 6,381 passing yards, 41 touchdowns, and 23 interceptions.
It remains to be seen how much of a drop the Ram WRs take from Bradford to Hill. It's possible the Rams lean on the run a little more this year with Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham leading the way. Hill's fantasy value should be considered very limited at this point, with perhaps a chance to be a spot starter in favorable committee matchups as his upside until we see a little more.
