Eagles | Philly pursuing Marcus Mariota?

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:54:06 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota could be selected by the Philadelphia Eagles if the team could make trades with the Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans, according to one draft rumor. The rumor states the Eagles would trade QB Sam Bradford to the Browns for the 19th overall pick, then the Eagles would trade DT Fletcher Cox, LB Mychal Kendricks, the 19th overall pick and the 20th overall pick to the Titans for the second overall pick where they would select Mariota.

Fantasy Tip: There have been rumors that the Eagles will try to trade up in the first round for Mariota, but the team will need to move up significantly to have a chance at him. Mariota likely would have a good chance to win the starting job if he joins the Eagles, but would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point.

Eagles | Sam Bradford contract talks are dormant

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 13:07:45 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has reportedly not had meaningful contract talks regarding an extension. Bradford is in the final year of his rookie deal. The quarterback is open to signing an extension if he is not traded.

Fantasy Tip: The lack of urgency to extend Bradford's deal has given way to rumors that Bradford may indeed be traded in order for the Eagles to pursue someone like Marcus Mariota in the NFL Draft. If Bradford does end up starting, he'll need to stay healthy before warranting starter consideration.

Eagles | No contract talks with Sam Bradford

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 22:52:22 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles and QB Sam Bradford have yet to make significant progress on a contract extension sparking speculation the quarterback might be traded again, although head coach Chip Kelly insists Bradford won't be used as a bargaining chip.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford's fantasy outlook is a little murky, as it isn't entirely clear where he'll be playing in 2015. If he secures the starting job he is a QB2 in most standard fantasy leagues with a lot of upside in Chip Kelly's high-octane offense.

Eagles | Sam Bradford considered quitting

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 10:59:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) considered quitting football after he suffered his second torn anterior cruciate ligament but was talked out of the idea by former college coach Josh Heupel. Heupel said Bradford is one of the most competitive players he has coached and that Bradford wants to come back and prove himself.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job during training camp. Bradford has played well in the past bur should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the starting job.

Eagles | Philly high on Sam Bradford

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 13:46:21 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was valued high by head coach Chip Kelly and owner Jeffrey Lurie before they traded for him this offseason. Lurie said this week that the Eagles evaluated Bradford as "the best young quarterback we'd seen… probably since Peyton Manning coming out of college" leading up to the 2010 NFL Draft. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who worked with Bradford while with the St. Louis Rams, was maybe the strongest advocate of Bradford before the trade went down.

Fantasy Tip: The biggest obstacle for Bradford will be his health, as he's missed most of the last two seasons with knee issues. He could be a low-end fantasy starter most weeks because of the Eagles' offensive system, but you shouldn't draft him as anything more than a midrange QB2 with upside.

Eagles | Sam Bradford to be traded?

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 12:15:57 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is still the subject of trade speculation as coaches attending the West Virginia University Pro Day posited that Bradford could be traded to the Tennessee Titans in exchange for the second overall pick in the NFL Draft this year.

Fantasy Tip: If Bradford does get traded to Tennessee, it seems that Philadelphia would likely draft QB Marcus Mariota, assuming he doesn't get drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the first overall pick. Of course, this is merely speculation at this point. For now, Bradford is a low-level QB2 in the fantasy football realm.

Browns | Cleveland offered a first for Sam Bradford

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 06:59:52 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford had an offer made for him by the Cleveland Browns, and a first-round pick was believed to be offered, according to NFL Network's Charley Casserly.

Fantasy Tip: Eagles head coach Chip Kelly opened some eyes when he disclosed a team offered him a first-round pick for Bradford. Bradford is a midrate QB2 with some upside in Kelly's fast-paced offense.

Eagles | Philly confident in Sam Bradford

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 14:18:32 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has confidence from the coaching staff that he can be their starting quarterback moving forward. "I think he's got an outstanding skill set," head coach Chip Kelly said. "He's a big, strong, physical quarterback. He's over 6-4, he's 240 pounds, he's smart, he's intelligent. He's one of the most accurate throwers when you see him throw the football. I think he's smart; I think he's wired right." Kelly also emphasized the fact that offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur worked with Bradford for a year with the St. Louis Rams, and he vouched for the oft-injured quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: The biggest hurdle for Bradford will be to stay healthy. If he can do that, he could be a low-end fantasy starter many weeks because of the system he's in. However, to be safe, draft him as a late-round flier in standard leagues. Not many fantasy owners will be jumping at the chance to owner Bradford in 2015, anyway.

Eagles | Sam Bradford has been throwing

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 14:00:17 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford said he has been participating in a throwing program for a few weeks now.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is focused on getting healthy before the 2015 commences. He has torn his anterior cruciate ligament twice in as many years. Even if he can stay healthy next season, he shouldn't be considered a starting fantasy quarterback.
