Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said that the order set with QB Sam Bradford as the No. 1, QB Chase Daniel as the backup and QB Carson Wentz as the third guy is "probably not the right impression." "But the other thing that -- as coaches -- that you've got to establish is a culture of competition. This is one of the most competitive industries in the world and so, to say that there's not competition, that's just the furthest thing from the truth."
Fantasy Tip: Head coach Doug Pederson confirmed that Bradford was the starter recently after the quarterback ended his brief holdout. It's likely just coach speak from Reich, and we fully expect Bradford to enter Week 1 as the starter. Bradford's leash could be short, though, since Pederson has an affinity for Daniel and Wentz has the skills to be serviceable in the NFL quickly. Bradford, or whoever is starting for Philly in 2016, should be firmly in the fantasy backup conversation.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford worked with the first-team offense during organized team activities Tuesday, May 17, with QB Chase Daniel taking repetitions with the second-team and QB Carson Wentz with the third-team. "I've actually talked to Sam since he's back," head coach Doug Pederson said, "and I told him: My feelings haven't changed. He's my guy. He's the No. 1 guy. I want him to embrace that and not look backward. Look forward."
Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to enter the season as the starter, but he may not have a long leash if he struggles, especially since Pederson has a history with Daniel and has high praise for him. Regardless, Wentz is the QB of the future in Philly. Bradford is nothing more than a midrange fantasy backup, but he can put up low-end QB1 numbers in the right matchups.
Tue, 17 May 2016 14:27:06 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QBs Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz all received the same amount of repetitions during practice Tuesday, May 17. Head coach Doug Pederson said Bradford will receive more reps once training camp begins since he will be the starter.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford will enter training camp as the starter, but the team is splitting snaps because they want Wentz to learn the offense. Bradford should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues in 2016. Wentz likely will not have much value in standard leagues but should be an attractive option in keeper leagues.
Wed, 20 Apr 2016 12:09:12 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QBs Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel and likely one of North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz or California QB Jared Goff will cost the Eagles more than $42 million. Bradford is due $18 million, Daniel is due $7 million and Went or Goff will be due at least $16 million, including a signing bonus.
Fantasy Tip: It's been an interesting offseason for Philadelphia. They re-signed Bradford, brought in Daniel and then decided they still didn't have their franchise quarterback. Their quarterbacks will be deep, but their wallets will be shallow. Through it all, drafting any of them as a starting fantasy quarterback is ill advised.
Wed, 06 Apr 2016 20:27:35 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will likely be getting a one-year look from the team, as he is guaranteed only $4 million in the second year of his current deal. He got better as the season progressed in 2015, but the team visited the top quarterbacks in this year's draft, and inked QB Chase Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract as a backup plan. The team can get out of Bradford's deal if it doesn't work out for $22 million total, and some team is likely to sign Bradford for $4 million in 2017 if he is released, offsetting a $4 million loss.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford will be playing for a payday in a new offensive system and with Daniel breathing down his neck. One of them will be around in 2017, and one will be wearing a different uniform. For now, Bradford is the starter and has some fantasy upside since he will be continually playing for a job from here on in.
Thu, 10 Mar 2016 12:31:38 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is the starting quarterback heading into the 2016 season, with QB Chase Daniel as the No. 2, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Fantasy Tip: It makes sense given the monetary commitment to Bradford, but Bradford's lack of production last year and injury history are red flags, and he could have a short leash. Pederson likes Daniel a lot, so he could see a chance before long. Regardless, neither QB is more than a midrange fantasy backup.
Wed, 09 Mar 2016 14:26:57 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles QB Chase Daniel will be given a chance to take away the starting quarterback job from QB Sam Bradford, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford re-signing didn't necessarily guarantee him his starting job back. While Daniel may not be viewed as talented a quarterback as Bradford, new head coach Doug Pederson still really likes him going back to their days with the Kansas City Chiefs. Whoever starts for the Eagles shouldn't be viewed as more than a backup fantasy quarterback, though.
Wed, 09 Mar 2016 13:05:35 -0800
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Chase Daniel's three-year deal is worth $21 million with $12 million fully guaranteed.
Fantasy Tip: Daniel reunites with former offensive coordinator Doug Pederson. With Sam Bradford's injury history and disappointing production, Daniel could play a bigger role than people think in Philadelphia's offense. He won't have much fantasy value as long as Bradford is healthy, though.
Wed, 09 Mar 2016 09:14:33 -0800
Updating an earlier report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Chase Daniel has an agreement on a three-year deal with the Eagles Wednesday, March 9.
Fantasy Tip: Daniel is familiar with Doug Pederson's system from his time in KC, and Pederson lauded that Daniel was more than a backup QB earlier this offseason. Sam Bradford doesn't have a strong hold on the starting spot, and Daniel could become a factor. Daniel is a watch-list player that could be worth a waiver claim at some point in 2016.
Wed, 09 Mar 2016 08:59:25 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent QB Chase Daniel agreed to terms on a multi-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, March 9.
Fantasy Tip: Daniel played for new Eagles head coach Doug Pederson in KC, and Pederson lauded that Daniel was more than a backup QB earlier this offseason. He'll likely enter the equation as the backup, but Sam Bradford doesn't have a strong hold on the starting spot. Daniel is a watch-list player that could be worth a waiver claim at some point in 2016.
Tue, 08 Mar 2016 17:12:17 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent QB Chase Daniel could be leaning towards signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, but three teams are "heavily involved", according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Daniel is the third-best free-agent quarterback on the market behind Brock Osweiler and Ryan Fitzpatrick, so he should get scooped up quickly once they make their decision. With Sam Bradford returning to Philly, the 29-year-old career backup would be wise to see if a potential starting job is waiting for him elsewhere first. Wherever he winds up, Daniel should be considered no more than a QB2.
Tue, 08 Mar 2016 11:33:54 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent QB Chase Daniel remains an option for the Philadelphia Eagles even after they re-signed QB Sam Bradford.
Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Daniel, if he were to come over to Philly he'd be in the same backup position he was in with the Chiefs, and he'd have virtually zero fantasy appeal unless Bradford suffered an injury.
Thu, 25 Feb 2016 12:18:19 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent QB Chase Daniel is a candidate to return to the club in 2016 "at the right price", according to general manager John Dorsey.
Fantasy Tip: In other words, he's likely done in Kansas City. A team like the Philadelphia Eagles, for example, may deem Daniel as a much more cost-effective option than Sam Bradford. Daniel, who has shown well in preseason and spot duty in recent years, will almost certainly come off the market quickly after free agency begins and probably be a middling fantasy QB2 wherever he lands.
Thu, 18 Feb 2016 07:18:32 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent QB Chase Daniel could be an option for the Philadelphia Eagles as new Eagles head coach Doug Pederson views Daniel as "more than a backup."
Fantasy Tip: He might be in rare company with that thought, but Daniel could be a name to watch if he lands a starting gig.
Fri, 18 Dec 2015 13:47:12 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Ricky Stanzi is the only quarterback on the team's roster not acquired by new head coach Andy Reid and new general manager John Dorsey, and he finds himself fighting for a roster spot. QB Alex Smith is the unquestioned starter, and QB Chase Daniel is the top backup. That leaves Stanzi and QB Tyler Bray fighting for the No. 3 job. "We're splitting reps. I'm just really worried about the reps I got. It's been nice to be out here a couple of days early just to refresh with the playbook and kind of get up to speed with the guys, especially with the receivers."
Wed, 17 Apr 2013 18:38:18 -0700
