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.

Eagles | Eagles getting offers for Sam Bradford

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 10:48:17 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is still getting interest from other teams, as head coach Chip Kelly said a team offered him a first-round pick for Bradford this morning.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Bradford were to be moved again, he is an extremely risky fantasy football option in 2015 as the Eagles have moved all their best playmakers, not to mention Bradford has to prove he can stay healthy for a full season.

Eagles | Sam Bradford obtained officially

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 15:56:04 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has officially been traded to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles also receive a 2015 fifth-round draft pick and surrender QB Nick Foles and a 2015 sixth-round draft pick and a 2016 second-round draft pick. However, the 2016 second-round pick will go back to Philadelphia if Bradford does not start.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles have lost RB LeSean McCoy and WR Jeremy Maclin already this offseason, so Bradford doesn't have as much to work with as he would have. Still, he seems to be going to a better offense and the Eagles could still make some offensive acquisitions. That being said, Bradford should still not be considered a starting fantasy quarterback, especially with his injury history.

Eagles | Philly close to acquiring Sam Bradford

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 13:06:04 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is close to being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for QB Nick Foles, according to sources. The Rams will also receive draft-pick compensation in the trade.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has a chance to be the Eagles starting quarterback in 2015 if he is healthy. He will have some weapons to work with in the Eagles' offense but should not be considered as more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in drafts.
