    Bradford or Kolb as fantasy backup?

    I just completed my fantasy draft and i have Aaron Rodgers as my starting QB and Kolb as my backup. My wife has Eli Manning as starter and Sanchez as backup. Is Bradford a better choice for backup on either team?

    Re: Bradford or Kolb as fantasy backup?

    Hard to say, Kolb certainly hasn't proven anything, but he does have a better WR corp to throw to, including Maclin. Tough call tho, because if Bradford starts doing what he did in pre-season, he could rack up some points. Before that though, I would think Kolb is a slightly safer bet.

    Kolb will be throwing a lot, he's a much better choice for a backup than Bradford. Even has starter potential in deeper leagues.

    I should've gone with my heart. Bradford got 28 pts and kolb got 4 pts and now another team owner dropped Vince Young for bradford. I wonder if i should drop kolb for stafford backup????

    Jeez, what scoring system is your league using? I'd love to see what Peyton or Arian Foster did in Week One of this league...

    Re: Bradford or Kolb as fantasy backup?

    I saw Kolb in person and the Philly O-line is in trouble. Most of their points were while Vick was in.

    Kolb has suffered a concussion. His starting center is out with a torn bicep and will miss the season. The starting fullback, Weaver, is out for the season.

    I also saw Kolb in KC a couple of weeks ago and was so unimpressed that I avoided drafting him for any of my FF teams.

    Kolb may be out next week. Bradford by a nose. He has a lot of potential.

    Bradford scored 13 points in my league this week. Not bad Sam, not bad at all.

    Re: Bradford or Kolb as fantasy backup?

    I have Kyle Orton as my starter and Eli as my backup, although Eli is starting this week for me (despite last week's crap performance). A league member just tried to trade me Bradford for Miles Austin. Being from Oklahoma and a long-time Ram fan, I'd like to have Sam... but not for Austin.

    Re: Bradford or Kolb as fantasy backup?

    I have Rivers, Young and Bradford and Bradford is #2 for my QBs and Young may get dropped. For now Bradford sits on my fantasy bench, but he might get some play this year.
