Vikings | Sam Bradford ready to play

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 15:26:24 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has struggled at times this season and has thrown at least two touchdowns in only on one of his last six games. Owners in most leagues can find a better option to start and can pass on Bradford.

Vikings | Sam Bradford remains limited

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:01:00 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (ankle) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has quietly thrown 12 touchdowns to just three interceptions on the season, although his 6.94 yards per completion leaves something to be desired. He's one somewhat of a cold streak of late, however, throwing just three touchdowns and two interceptions in his last three outings while averaging a measly 233 yards per game. Bradford is a backup fantasy quarterback.

Vikings | Sam Bradford also limited

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 16:08:17 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (ankle) was limited in practice Monday, Nov. 28.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Bradford doesn't suffer any setbacks he should be good to go for Thursday night. Bradford has struggled for the most part this season, though, and he is not a starting caliber fantasy quarterback.

Vikings | Sam Bradford does little with a lot

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 13:27:37 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford threw for just 224 yards on 31 completions in the Vikings' Week 12 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford had a tailor made matchup against the Detroit Lions on Thursday, but he didn't play up to par even throwing 31 completions out of 37 attempts. He remains a backup fantasy quarterback going forward.

Vikings | Sam Bradford effective in win

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 14:06:34 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was 20-of-28 for 169 yards and a touchdown in a 30-24 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Minnesota is effective against the pass, but so is Arizona. Its 195.2 yards per game is second in the NFL, so Bradford's low number doesn't come as a surprise. He was pretty effective, so his QB1 status really isn't in jeopardy.

Vikings | Strong day for Sam Bradford

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 12:45:16 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was 31-of-40 for 307 yards with two touchdowns and an interception Sunday, Nov. 13, in a 26-20 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Bradford was scoreless in every quarter but the second, where Minnesota scored 20 points, Bradford appears to be back on the map. He looked solid in another 300-yard game. As long as he has people like offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur watching him, Bradford is a decent QB1.

Vikings | Sam Bradford strong in loss

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 15:03:03 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was 31-of-40 for 273 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Nov. 6, in a 22-16 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Time will tell what having a new offensive coordinator will do for Bradford. The new OC is Pat Shurmur, who has worked closely with Bradford in the past. Bradford remains a decent low QB1 or high QB2 choice as long as Shurmur is in charge.

Vikings | Sam Bradford doesn't do much

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 21:34:55 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 23 of his 37 pass attempts for 228 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 8 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford's offensive line was shaky, and the run game continue to do very little to alleviate pressure for him. He found Stefon Diggs late in the game for a touchdown, but he was nearly shut out. He'll look to bounce back in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions, a pass defense ranking 19th by allowing 259.4 yards per game while giving up an NFL-high tying 19 passing scores.

Vikings | Sam Bradford struggles against PHI

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 13:35:14 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford struggled against his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, on Sunday, Oct. 23. Bradford was 24-for-41 for 224 yards and one touchdown but was sacked six times and committed three turnovers in a 21-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: If any team knows Bradford's weaknesses it's going to be Philadelphia, so don't read too much into this. The Eagles defense is fairly strong. If you're truly concerned, wait and see how Bradford fares in the next game before plugging him in.

Vikings | Sam Bradford does it again

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 16:02:32 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 22 of his 30 pass attempts for 271 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is still just a little over a month into his Minnesota experience, but he has learned the offense quickly and looks like he has been in the system for years. He has emerged as a decent low-end QB1 or must-start QB2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. However, he has a bye in Week 6.

Vikings | Sam Bradford sharp in another win

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 21:02:18 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 26 of his 36 pass attempts for 262 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 4 game against the New York Giants. He also ran four times for six yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has stepped into the lineup in Minnesota and led the team to three victories in three starts, quickly learning the offense. He is still more of a QB2 than a regular starting option. Next up is a home game against the Houston Texans in Week 5.

Vikings | Sam Bradford taken for X-rays

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 18:16:12 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (hand) was taken to the locker room for X-rays in the second quarter of the Week 2 game against the Green Bay Packers due to a hand injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford departed briefly, but he returned to the sidelines. He has a visible laceration on his left non-throwing hand, too.

Vikings | Sam Bradford on track to play

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 13:34:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford is expected to start against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2 after receiving all of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how much Bradford will be asked to throw in Week 2, but the Vikings likely will run the ball more often. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Bradford.

Vikings | Sam Bradford expected to start

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 08:15:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford is expected to start in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers. Bradford has been adept at learning the offense, and head coach Mike Zimmer may not announce it or inform the team because the news came out that QB Shaun Hill would start last week.

Fantasy Tip: The player this will impact most is Adrian Peterson, who rushed 19 times for 31 yards in Week 1 because Tennessee stacked the box. Peterson has a fruitful week against a yearly questionable Packers run defense. Bradford, however, is merely a QB2 in two-QB leagues.

Vikings | Sam Bradford takes all first-team reps

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 21:25:58 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford took all of the first-team snaps in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: While the team said they are undecided on their starter for Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers, it appears Bradford is on his way to his first start with the team. Right now Bradford should be considered as a low-end QB2 in most fantasy formats.

Vikings | Minnesota QB undecided for Week 2

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 22:52:47 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill started and was able to pick up the win in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans. However, head coach Mike Zimmer said coaches will huddle before deciding whether Hill or QB Sam Bradford will start in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Hill didn't do much statistically, and Bradford has a lot more talent and fantasy upside. For the receivers, Bradford would help their fantasy appeal in Week 2.

Vikings | Sam Bradford 'close' to being ready

Sat, 10 Sep 2016 10:50:49 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford is close to being ready to play, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: The same source went on to compliment his intelligence as well, which is a fair assessment considering Bradford just joined the Vikings about a week ago and is making the transition from the wordy West Coast-based offense in Philadelphia to Norv Turner's number-based attack in Minnesota. While Shaun Hill is reportedly in line to start Week 1, Bradford will be the odds-on favorite to get the nod in Week 2 at home versus the Green Bay Packers and beyond. He should be considered a low-end QB2 for now.

Vikings | Shaun Hill expected to start

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 15:50:26 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill is expected to be the starting quarterback for Week 1, according to sources. The team has not announced if Hill or QB Sam Bradford will start the game.

Fantasy Tip: Hill likely will start since Bradford has spent just a week with the team and may need some more time to learn the offense. Hill is not a great fantasy option since team likely will run the ball often in Week 1.

Vikings | Mike Zimmer won't announce starting QB

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 09:27:21 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer will not publicly announce whether QB Sam Bradford or QB Shaun Hill will start against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford and Hill aren't in the starting conversation unless your playing in a two-QB league, so in most cases, you can take a wait-and-see approach here. Plus, the Week 1 matchup against Tennessee should prove to be a low-scoring game and unfriendly fantasy setting.

Vikings | Two Minnesota QBs with first-team reps

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 11:58:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QBs Sam Bradford and Shaun Hill will both receive first-team repetitions in practice this week. Head coach Mike Zimmer has not officially named a starter for Week 1 yet.

Fantasy Tip: Either Bradford or Hill would make for a cheap, sleeper option in daily formats for Week 1. The Vikings could ride Adrian Peterson pretty heavily, though, as they've done every year. Neither Bradford nor Hill should be regarded as a QB1 in seasonal leagues.

Vikings | Former OC confident in Sam Bradford

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 08:19:11 -0700

Minnesota Vikings tight ends coach Pat Shurmur told the Vikings that he believes QB Sam Bradford will be able to learn offensive coordinator Norv Turner's scheme quickly. Shurmur was Bradford's offensive coordinator with the Philadelphia Eagles last season.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to sit out Week 1 while he learns the offense but has a chance to start in Week 2. Bradford will have solid weapons to work with on offense but should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in all fantasy leagues in part because of his injury history.

Vikings | Sam Bradford trade details

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 00:06:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Minnesota Vikings acquired QB Sam Bradford from the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Sept. 3, in exchange for a first-round pick in 2017 and a conditional fourth-round selection in 2018. The '18 pick becomes a third-round pick if the Vikings reach the NFC Championship Game this season, and it becomes a second rounder if they win the Super Bowl.

Vikings | Sam Bradford traded to Minnesota

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 07:34:40 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was acquired by the Minnesota Vikings Saturday, Sept. 3, according to sources. It is not known what the Eagles will receive in return.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will be the starting quarterback for the Vikings this season and will have some weapons to work with in the passing game. He should still be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback since the Vikings likely will be more of a running team with Adrian Peterson. Chase Daniel likely will start for the Eagles but should also be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Vikings | Minnesota looking at Sam Bradford

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 07:33:46 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is a player the Minnesota Vikings have inquired about after they lost QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is the Eagles starting quarterback but could be available depending on the asking price. He most likely will stay with the Eagles but should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback no matter where he plays.

Eagles | Sam Bradford makes his statement

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 21:36:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford completed 17 of his 20 pass attempts for 167 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has done everything asked in Philadelphia, and he looks like the favorite to win the starting job since Carson Wentz is injured. If Bradford can secure the starting job in Philadelphia and hang onto it, he would be a decent QB2 in most fantasy formats as long as he can stay healthy.

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 08:27:46 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford and the rest of the starters will play into the second quarter in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will have his first chance to add some kind of spark to his midrange QB2 status in fantasy.

Eagles | Carson Wentz to play a lot Thursday

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 14:41:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz will receive most of the snaps in the second half of the preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Aug. 11. QBs Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel will play in the first half, while QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson could receive one or two series in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Wentz is the quarterback of the future for the Eagles but likely will not see any playing time this season. He can be an option in keeper leagues but should be avoided in all other leagues.

Eagles | Sam Bradford excused Monday

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 08:06:13 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was excused Monday, Aug. 8, due to a family matter. He'll be back in time to start the first preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is in a make-or-break year for his career path. He has plenty of weapons to throw to, but after several significant injuries, he has struggled under pressure. He's a QB2 in fantasy that could be used in good matchups on your starter's bye week.

Eagles | Sam Bradford most accurate in camp

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 10:35:18 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has "easily been the most accurate quarterback of the three, as well as the most consistent on a day-to-day basis." Unlike QBs Carson Wentz and Chase Daniel, Bradford is yet to have a "clear and obvious clunker" through 10 practices.

Fantasy Tip: Even with the Eagles drafting Wentz, this is still Bradford's team for the time being, and as long as this type of play in training camp translates into regular season success, he shouldn't have to worry about looking over his shoulder. Bradford is a bit of a risky option to have as your starting quarterback in fantasy, as he might have a short leash, but his ceiling is underrated with this group as long as he remains healthy. He's capable of providing standout numbers.

Eagles | Sam Bradford impressing in camp

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 11:02:22 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford appears comfortable with the playbook and is ahead of where he was last season at this point, in the opinion of The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has limited upside as a low-end QB2. Outside of SuperFlex and two-QB formats, it's best to leave him to the waiver wire and only utilize him as a potential streaming option or DFS value play in favorable matchups.

Eagles | Philly QBs splitting time in training camp

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 17:42:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QBs Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz will split reps evenly at the beginning of training camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: Barring injury or some unforeseen circumstance, Bradford will open the season as the Eagles' No. 1 quarterback, with Daniel serving as the second-string QB. Bradford should be viewed as a low-end QB2 in seasonal leagues, with Wentz worthy of consideration as a late-round flier for dynasty formats.

Eagles | Sam Bradford likely gone after 2016

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 13:05:46 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is "extremely unlikely" to be with the team after the 2016 season has drawn to a close, according to PhillyVoice writer Jimmy Kempski.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles have the NFL's least amount of available cap space in 2017 and 2018. Bradford' cap number is $22.5 million in 2017 - $13 million of which the Eagles will save if he is released and $17 million if he is traded. No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz is waiting in the wings, further suggesting Philadelphia will move on from Bradford, who should be considered a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Eagles | Sam Bradford working out with teammates

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:30:17 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is working out with several of his teammates in San Diego leading up to training camp. QBs Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz, RB Darren Sproles, WRs Jordan Matthews, Josh Huff, T.J. Graham and Rueben Randle and TE Zach Ertz are among the players participating in the workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is trying to build chemistry with his receivers so they can start the season off strong. Bradford should only be considered as a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues. Matthews and Ertz will be among the leaders in targets for the Eagles this season and likely will be selected in the middle rounds of drafts. Sproles should have a role in the running and passing game in 2016 and could be a late-round option who will have more value in point-per-reception leagues. Huff and Randle are only late-round options in deeper leagues.

Eagles | Carson Wentz the No. 3 QB?

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 17:03:27 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz might not even dress on game days, and QB Chase Daniel would likely take over as the starter if QB Sam Bradford goes down, according to beat writer Jimmy Kempski.

Fantasy Tip: Wentz is going to be given a chance to run the show in Philadelphia at some point, but for 2016, he is only worth grabbing in the later rounds of dynasty formats.

Eagles | Philly quarterbacks should split reps

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 12:36:43 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QBs Sam Bradford, Carson Wentz and Chase Daniel will receive equal repetitions heading into training camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson. Pederson said Bradford likely won't take more reps than Wentz and Daniel until late in the preseason when starters usually ramp up their workload.

Fantasy Tip: The starting job seems to be Bradford's to lose, but Wentz and Daniel could make the decision tougher if they perform well enough will their equal reps. Bradford and the other two won't be worth drafting as a starting fantasy quarterback, however.

Eagles | Sam Bradford 'outstanding' in OTAs

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 07:16:58 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has been "outstanding" in organized team activities and remains the No. 1 quarterback, according to head coach Doug Pederson. "Sam's taking this thing and running with it," Pederson said.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good start for Bradford, who initially was holding out after he was unhappy with Philadelphia's drafting of Carson Wentz second overall. Because of Bradfords' lengthy injury history and inconsistency when healthy, he shouldn't be considered anything more than a midrange fantasy starter entering the 2016 season.

Eagles | Sam Bradford to work out with teammates

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:58:43 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford said he plans to work out with several of the skill players during the first week in July in order to work on their timing leading up to training camp. WRs Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Chris Givens are among the players that will be part of the workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will try to improve his chemistry with some of the receivers before the start of camp. He will be the starting quarterback this season but probably will not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Eagles | Coach impressed with Sam Bradford

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:08:37 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has been impressing the coaches during offseason workouts, according to quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo. DeFilippo said Bradford is one of the most naturally gifted passers he has seen in a while.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will open the season as the starting quarterback as long as he is healthy. He will have weapons to work with in the passing game but probably is not more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point and will come with some risk since he could be replaced if he struggles.

Eagles | Carson Wentz off to fast start

Tue, 31 May 2016 02:48:32 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has displayed an NFL-caliber arm and the ability to make every throw on the route-tree during practice, and beat writer Matt Lombardo believes Wentz seems to be ahead of QB Sam Bradford when it comes to mastering head coach Doug Pederson's offense.

Fantasy Tip: Based on experience, Bradford still has to be the frontrunner to open the year as the starter, but Wentz is obviously the future. Neither quarterback should be viewed as a fantasy starter in 2016, but whoever lands the starting gig could be a serviceable backup.

Eagles | Philly teammates on board with Sam Bradford

Fri, 27 May 2016 11:23:59 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins said the Eagles aren't harboring any ill feelings toward QB Sam Bradford after he skipped the start of the offseason program and demanded a trade. "But I think right now, barring anything crazy or anything changing over the next few months, I think everybody is very comfortable with Sam and looking forward to him falling into that role," Jenkins said.

Fantasy Tip: That stance could change quickly if Bradford struggles out of the gates in 2016. Bradford has been too injury-prone and inconsistent to use as anything more than a fantasy backup so far in his career.

Eagles | No QB order set in Philly

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:33:46 -0700

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.

Eagles | Zach Ertz not worried about QB situation

Thu, 19 May 2016 19:13:18 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz said he isn't going to run his routes any differently for QB Sam Bradford than he would for QB Carson Wentz.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has TE1 potential, but consistency has been an issue throughout his career. The quarterback situation shouldn't impact his value too much, and Ertz's upside is worth taking a chance on if you wait until later in your draft to address the tight end spot.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews has rapport with Bradford

Thu, 19 May 2016 09:58:20 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews flew to Oklahoma in March to work with QB Sam Bradford, and Matthews is OK with Bradford's trade request earlier in the offseason.

"If I'm cool with it, then everybody should be cool with it," Matthews said. "Look, if I want to be here, and I'm happy with it, and we can go out there and just compete, that's all I want to focus on. That's all that matters."

Fantasy Tip: Matthews had a decent 85-997-8 season last year, but he was really hamstrung by the absence of a legitimate target opposite of him. Rueben Randle and Chris Givens should help deter double coverages from him. Matthews is a high-end WR2 in fantasy, while Bradford's fragility makes him a low-end QB2.

Eagles | Sam Bradford works with first-team

Wed, 18 May 2016 09:47:31 -0700

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.

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.

Eagles | Carson Wentz does not expect tension

Fri, 13 May 2016 13:39:58 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz said he expects to have a good relationship with QB Sam Bradford and does not expect any tension in the quarterback room. "I think the relationship with him, and I believe with the other quarterbacks, will be great," Wentz said. "It will be a really competitive atmosphere. Hopefully, we'll learn together, grow together and really push each other." Wentz said he does not care what his role is as long as the team is winning.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to begin the season as the starting quarterback, but Wentz could take over the job at some point if Bradford struggles. Bradford probably would be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues, while Wentz could be an attractive option in keeper leagues.

Eagles | Sam Bradford reporting Monday

Mon, 09 May 2016 05:42:22 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford informed team personnel he'll report to offseason workouts Monday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford looked great early on last season before things began to unravel. He's extremely fragile and hasn't been consistent doing more than short-range throws. It's a make-or-break year, but he's a risk as a low-end QB1 and a better backup in fantasy.
