LB - DEN
Week 17 Outlook
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Veteran LB Nigel Bradham is signing with the Broncos' practice squad.
The Saints signed Bradham in July, but he lasted only 24 days with the team before being released. The 31-year-old veteran spent time with the Bills and Eagles, compiling at least 51 tackles in all eight of his seasons in the NFL. The Broncos are adding him for both his experience and as depth since they have been ravaged by injuries to start the year.
Nigel Bradham finished Thursday’s 34-27 win over the Packers with six total tackles (four solo) and an interception.
Bradham is currently second on the team in total tackles with 21 through Week 4. If that level of play continues the rest of the season, Bradham is worth rostering in deeper IDP leagues.
Nigel Bradham completed Sunday’s win 32-27 against the Washington Redskins with seven total tackles (six solo).
Bradham accumulated 97 tackles in 15 games played during the 2018 season. He should be able to repeat that performance this season and is worth starting in most IDP leagues at the LB spot.
Nigel Bradham recorded five solo tackles and one assisted tackles in the Philadelphia Eagles' Week 7 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Bradham, the 44th-ranked fantasy linebacker to this point in the season, had a decent game. He's a streamer in the right matchup except in the deepest leagues.
Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham recorded six tackles (all solo, one for loss), one sack, and one pass defensed in Thursday’s dominant 34-13 win over the Giants. He had one additional hit on quarterback Eli Manning.
Bradham now has two sacks in five games played on the season. The Panthers are up next in Week 7.
