Week 17 was not a good one for Bradham. He failed to get a solo tackle for the first time all season, despite playing in every one of the team's defensive snaps. Despite his rough day, Bradham finished the season as the team's leading tackler with 102 on the season, and he played in 97.1 percent of the team's defensive snaps. He also forced two fumbles and had five passes defensed, including an interception, while playing in all 16 games this season.
This was easily Bradham's highest tackle total of the season, and although he's been an inconsistent IDP performer in 2016, he's finishing the season on a high note. Over the last four weeks, he's forced a pair a fumbles while recording a sack and notching at least nine tackles on two separate occasions. Since it's looking as if the 27-year-old is coming into his own as a playmaker, he could be a player to target in 2017 IDP drafts.
After being a consistent weekly IDP option in the middle of the season, he's re-emerged as a strong contributor after a three-week slump. During his recent surge that began in Week 13, he's averaging six tackles while adding a pair of forced fumbles and a sack.
Bradham recorded nine tackles Sunday against Cincinnati, including one that went for a loss.
Bradham upped his tackle total to 79 on Sunday, easily good enough for the team lead. The Florida State product has upped his production in four consecutive games and will look to carry his momentum into a pivotal Week 14 matchup against the Redskins, a unit he tallied 10 tackles and one deflected pass against in Week 6.
Bradham notched 10 tackles along with a pass defensed Sunday against the Giants.
After a slow start to the season, Bradham has come on strong with at least 10 tackles in three of his last four matchups. In addition to his recent improvement in the tackle category, he's also been credited with a pass defensed in four different games. He's a player worth adding to IDP rosters before his value continues to climb.
