Eagles | Sam Bradford to be ready for training camp?

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 14:16:30 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is expected to be in the final phase of his rehabilitation from a torn anterior cruciate ligament once training camp begins. Bradford's second ACL tear in as many seasons will require more time to recover and the Eagles may not have a grasp on how ready he is to play before the regular season begins.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is definitely a risky investment this year. He's coming off back-to-back ACL tears and has spent a lot of time rehabbing, which could negatively affect the chemistry he'll have with his receivers and offensive teammates if he does indeed start. Do not draft Bradford as your starting fantasy quarterback.

Eagles | Sam Bradford in talks on deal

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 15:52:03 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has been in preliminary contract talks with the Eagles, but no real progress has been made. Bradford is due $12.985 million this year.

Fantasy Tip: The key for Bradford in 2015, as it has been throughout his career, is staying healthy. He has already suffered two torn ACLs. If he can stay on the field, he could exceed expectations in head coach Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense. For now, he's still a backup fantasy quarterback.

Eagles | Sam Bradford limited

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 08:17:06 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) will continue to see action in 7-on-7 drills but will not participate in 11-on-11 drills. Head coach Chip Kelly said he's hopeful Bradford will be ready for 11-on-11's in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has upside because of the offense, but he has proven to be very brittle. He's worth a shot as a QB2.

Eagles | Zach Ertz building rapport with QB

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 13:00:16 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has developed chemistry with QB Sam Bradford this offseason. The Bradford to Ertz connection has supposedly been commonplace at organized team activities. Ertz is excited for what Bradford can bring to the offense. "I think we will get back to some of the deep plays," Ertz said. "I'll do anything I can to get open." Ertz added that Bradford has a strong, accurate arm and can put the ball up high where Ertz is able to go up and catch it.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz likes to make the big play, and Bradford is able to help him with that. Ertz finished on the brink of TE1 status last year, despite splitting time with Brent Celek. If Bradford and Ertz can add a few more big plays, and if Ertz can improve on his measly three touchdowns, he can easily end up as a TE1 in 2015.

Eagles | Sam Bradford progressing

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 12:35:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is progressing well in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Bradford has been practicing more and has looked more mobile while doing so, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Bradford said that he's not sure if he'll be at 100% by the time training camp starts, however.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford may not be at full health before training camp, but he still has plenty of time to fully recover until the season commences. Even at full health, Bradford will still be a high-end backup fantasy quarterback at his best. He's a big injury risk with two torn ACLs already in his career.

Eagles | Sam Bradford looks hobbled

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 22:07:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) appeared to still be hobbled during organized team activities Tuesday, June 9, and he worked with a large brace on his leg while doing limited activity on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is battling Mark Sanchez for the starting quarterback job, and he will need to get healthy in order to learn Chip Kellyís intricate offense. Sanchez has the leg up due to his experience in the system last season. The starter will be determined during training camp and the preseason, and thatís when fantasy values will be figured out.

Eagles | Sam Bradford improving at OTAs

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 11:08:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is participating in competitive drills as he and QB Mark Sanchez share first-team repetitions during organized team activities Tuesday, June 2. Bradford is rehabilitating from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered last season.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to start as long as he's fully healthy, but Sanchez isn't far behind. Whoever starts should be regarded as a QB2 in what should once again be a high-flying offense under head coach Chip Kelly.

Eagles | Sam Bradford not close to full health

Fri, 29 May 2015 05:58:01 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) doesn't appear close to 100% health, but he could still make it back in time to start Week 1. Head coach Chip Kelly insists Bradford is on schedule. Earlier this month Bradford practiced one week only to sit out practice the next. He said it wasn't a setback and that they just wanted to push his knee to see how it responded. Not practicing suggests that it didn't respond well.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will likely be a popular QB2 flyer in traditional formats, and he could pay off. Don't forget about Mark Sanchez, though. A second year in the offense could lead to some decent production if he overtakes Bradford.

Eagles | Sam Bradford no lock to start

Thu, 28 May 2015 20:47:13 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is on schedule with his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but head coach Chip Kelly said Thursday, May 28, that the starting quarterback job is an open competition.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford should be considered the frontrunner to land the starting gig, but Mark Sanchez will apparently have a shot to earn the job, as well. Whoever ends up under center in Week 1 will have plenty of fantasy upside thanks to Kelly's offense.

Eagles | Sam Bradford throwing, 7-on-7 next week

Thu, 28 May 2015 09:42:43 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is throwing on the side in individual drills Thursday, May 28, according to Eagles head coach Chip Kelly. Kelly said Bradford will begin 7-on-7 drills next week.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is a midrange QB2 and could present a nice value if he can stay healthy.

Eagles | Sam Bradford sitting out some drills

Wed, 27 May 2015 19:28:38 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) has not been participating in team drills during organized team activities this week, according to sources. Bradford has been limited throughout the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford looks to be the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job at this point but likely will have to compete with Mark Sanchez during training camp. Owners should consider the winner of the competition as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2015.

Eagles | Sam Bradford perfect for Philadelphia?

Thu, 14 May 2015 19:34:59 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is a perfect fit for Chip Kelly's offense because he can make all the throws with a "top-notch" arm, is a "better athlete than people think" and operates best out of a no-huddle attack, according to New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford may be the biggest risk-reward pick in fantasy drafts in 2015. If he can stay healthy, he could put up monster numbers in Kelly's offense.

Eagles | Deny Sam Bradford trade rumors

Sat, 02 May 2015 01:35:28 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was shopped to both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans, according to sources, but Eagles coach Chip Kelly has denied the rumors.

Fantasy Tip: One media member said Bradford was "being shopped like a slice of pizza." Bradford looks like he'll go into the season as the No. 1 QB for Philadelphia, but any contract talks may have Bradford holding the team over a barrel.

Eagles | Philly made big push for Marcus Mariota

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 21:51:59 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles offered the Tennessee Titans two first-round picks, one third-round pick, DT Fletcher Cox, CB Brandon Boykin, LB Mychal Kendricks and QB Sam Bradford in exchange for the 2nd overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: After turning down a very generous offer, it is no surprise to learn that Tennessee plans on start Mariota in 2015. Consider him a low-end QB2 to open the year.

Browns | Sam Bradford not fond of Browns

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 15:22:00 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford isn't thrilled about the possibility of being traded to the Browns and is resistant to the idea of signing a contract extension with Cleveland. Bradford wasn't thrilled when the Browns first asked about him when he was with the St. Louis Rams.

Fantasy Tip: This is all speculation leading up to the NFL Draft Thursday evening. However, if Bradford does land in Cleveland via a trade, it'll arguably be one of the better signal callers they've had under center in quite some time, regardless of Bradford's injury history. However, his fantasy value would take a hit with the move to the Browns, making him a QB2 with upside, at best.

Browns | Sam Bradford could go to Browns

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:40:52 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford could be traded to the Cleveland Browns, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The quarterback situation would look somewhat more promising if Bradford was acquired. His weapons would be limited and he would still have to stay on the field, however. Bradford would be a very risky fantasy option in Cleveland, not only because of a weak supporting cast, but because of his tumultuous health history.

Eagles | Sam Bradford is Philly's guy

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 22:10:06 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was acquired to be the team's quarterback, not as a trade pawn. Bradford will only sign an extension with the Eagles with a no-trade clause, as he really wants to play in the system of head coach Chip Kelly and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.

Fantasy Tip: If Bradford could stay healthy he might be a very, very interesting fantasy option in 2015. He has all the tools to be a tremendous quarterback in this league, but he has had a difficult time staying healthy in his career. In Philly he could be very dangerous if he lives up to the potential which made him the No. 1 overall pick in 2010.

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.

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.

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.

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has been reticent to take a pay cut from the $16.58 million he counts against the 2015 salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has missed the last 25 regular season games and is a low-end QB2 if he remains St. Louis' starter.

Rams | Sam Bradford trade unlikely

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 14:17:21 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford will probably not be traded this offseason despite interest from the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills. As of Tuesday, Feb. 24, no teams have contacted the Rams about trading Bradford.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Bradford will be staying in St. Louis after all, though there is still plenty of time for that to change this offseason. Bradford remains a backup fantasy quarterback at best when healthy.

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 11:43:30 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is not being pursued by the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Buffalo is still certainly in need of a quarterback, but Bradford seems to be staying in St. Louis. Nonetheless, both Bradford and whoever the starting quarterback will be for the Bills should be considered no more than fantasy backups in 2015.

Browns | Cleveland interested in Sam Bradford

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 10:52:38 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has reportedly drawn interest from the Cleveland Browns, but Bradford will likely be staying with the Rams.

Fantasy Tip: It was originally believed that Bradford would have to compete for the starting quarterback position in St. Louis, but the tone has changed and Bradford still seems to firmly in the starting position. Still, he missed all of last year and missed about half of the 2013 season. He's a big injury risk and shouldn't be considered in drafts at this time.

Rams | HC in Sam Bradford's corner

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 11:30:02 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is coming back-to-back seasons of anterior cruciate ligament tears in his knees, but head coach Jeff Fisher is betting on Bradford to be the team's quarterback in 2015. Fisher said that Bradford remains ahead of schedule in his rehab and is working at the team's complex every day. Bradford won't be used any differently in training camp or the preseason in order to try and prevent another injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford hasn't been able to stay on the field in his young career. Because of that, there's no reason to trust him or invest in him as a QB2 in fantasy leagues this year, even if he shows good progress in training camp.

Rams | Losing Sam Bradford not the answer

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 13:04:47 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford may still have a future with the Rams after general manager Les Snead said Wednesday, Feb. 18, that deleting Bradford is not the answer. Snead reiterated that eliminating Bradford was not the answer when asked about trade rumors involving the injury-prone quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: No matter where he plays, Bradford has proven to be an injury risk. He's only played two full seasons in five years and has torn his anterior cruciate ligament twice in as many seasons. Even when healthy, his numbers aren't anything to write home about. He's a backup fantasy quarterback at best.

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has permission to seek a trade. Bradford's agent can speak to other teams, but it will be difficult to find compensations to the Rams liking.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has seen his stock fall in recent years due to ACL injuries. A new team could rejuvenate his career and fantasy stock moving forward. Wait and see how this plays out before committing to him for your roster.

Jets | Sam Bradford on radar?

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 23:10:37 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is being watched by the New York Jets. Bradford has one year left on his contract with the Rams and carries a $16.58 million hit to the salary cap. The Jets cannot touch Bradford unless St. Louis cuts him and lets him hit free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has dropped in stature in the past couple seasons due to ACL injuries, so the best thing for him might be a change of scenery. His fantasy value has declined significantly, but one strong season could turn him around.

Rams | Sam Bradford expected to return

Sat, 14 Feb 2015 05:54:24 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is expected to return to the team next season and likely will be the starter if he is healthy next season. The team would like him to restructure his contract in order to lower his salary cap hit, but there has not been much movement in those talks.

Fantasy Tip: The team likely will add another quarterback this offseason, but it looks like Bradford will be the leading candidate for the starting job if he is able to recover from his second torn anterior cruciate ligament. Bradford probably will not be an option in fantasy drafts if he keeps the starting job.

Rams | Sam Bradford may be asked to rework deal

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford may be asked to restructure his contract this offseason, so the team can reduce his $12.985 million salary for 2015. Bradford counts $16.58 million against the salary cap next season, but the team could save $12.985 in cap space if Bradford is released.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Bradford will remain with the Rams or if he will be available in free agency. He may need to compete for the starting quarterback job if he stays with the Rams. Bradford probably should not be an option in fantasy drafts next season.

Rams | Rams want Sam Bradford back

Tue, 30 Dec 2014 15:42:27 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is wanted back by the team to compete for the starting quarterback position next season. However, head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear that nothing will be guaranteed for Bradford. Bradford continues to rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and he heads into an uncertain offseason. Fisher said the team plans to bring Bradford back at a reduced rate next year. He currently is scheduled to cost $16.58 million against the salary cap. Bradford plans to remain in St. Louis in the offseason to continue his rehab, and he said his knee feels better this time than the last time he had the same ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will enter 2015 without a guaranteed starting job, which should keep him off the radar of all fantasy football players.

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford won't be guaranteed the starting quarterback position next season as head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear Tuesday, Dec. 30, that there will be a quarterback competition in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Again, if Bradford does retain the starting role, he'll be a low-end QB2 at best. He's not worth starting in seasonal leagues, especially considering his injury history.

Rams | Sam Bradford out for season

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 13:10:07 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for the season after an MRI revealed a torn left anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Zac Stacy will be relied upon even heavier with Shaun Hill as the quarterback. Stacy is a low-end RB2. Tavon Austin's stock could take a slight hit, but he remains a solid WR4. Kenny Britt is still worth a late-round flier as a WR5.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Bradford may not be out long because of the injury, but more news should come out as he undergoes more tests. Bradford is a No. 2 quarterback even if he is healthy for the start of the season.
