Fantasy Tip: If Bradford is healthy enough to participate in a majority of training camp, he should open the season as the starter. His injury history makes him a risk, but he has QB1 upside and needs to be owned as a backup.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford could either be franchise tagged or transition tagged if he has a successful season and the Eagles don't want to give him a long-term contract. If Bradford were transition tagged, he would be able to sign with other teams, but the Eagles would have the option to match their offers.
Fantasy Tip: Health is the main, and really only, question for Bradford. And it probably will be as long as he's in the NFL. Quarterbacks have done fairly well under head coach Chip Kelly in Philadelphia so far. Bradford could be that next guy if he can stay on the field. He's too risky to be drafted as your starting fantasy quarterback, however.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is expected to be ready to participate once training camp begins. Bradford has been rehabilitating his knee after suffering a second anterior cruciate ligament tear in as many years.
Fantasy Tip: There will still be a quarterback competition in Philadelphia, but Bradford will likely start as long as he is healthy and remains healthy. This will be an important position battle to keep tabs once training camps start. Bradford is still a backup fantasy quarterback if he is starter.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has dealt with injuries for most of his career and will be competing with Mark Sanchez for the starting quarterback job during training camp. Bradford could win the starting job but should not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Tim Tebow is currently fourth on the depth chart, but Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com believes he could pass QB Matt Barkley and make the Week 1 roster because the Eagles already tried to trade Barkley this offseason.

Philadelphia Eagles CB Nolan Carroll is the current favorite to start at cornerback opposite CB Byron Maxwell. Carroll has seen the majority of first-team repetitions and has performed well this offseason in the eyes of head coach Chip Kelly. CBs Brandon Boykin and Eric Rowe will also compete for the starting cornerback position.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez is hosting workouts in San Diego with teammates. RB Darren Sproles, RB Ryan Mathews, WR Jordan Matthews, QB Matt Barkley, QB/WR G.J. Kinne, WR Quron Pratt, WR Rasheed Bailey, WR Seyi Ajirotutu and TE Andrew Gleichert were in attendance.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is likely to take a backseat once Sam Bradford returns to health, but he's not going to make it easy. Sanchez doesn't have as much upside as Bradford, but he'd be a midrange QB2 if he is able to nab the starting job.

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray was one of two running backs with at least 40 targets last season that caught 89% of those targets. He caught 57 of his 64 targets. The other running back was Oakland Raiders RB Roy Helu.
Fantasy Tip: It's still unclear how often Murray, Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles will be used, but Murray probably won't be called on as much in the passing game, especially with Sproles present. Murray will still be the Eagles' go-to tailback, however, and should be in low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 territory heading into drafts.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is expected to thrive for Philadelphia in his rookie season, according to an anonymous NFL executive. "He'll come in and produce right away. He has the right mentality and just a great approach to the game," the source said. "He's going to help them. And in that offense, he'll put up numbers."
Fantasy Tip: Agholor should be the No. 2 wide receiver behind Jordan Matthews. Agholor has impressed this offseason and has the talent to produce immediately. The main concern for Agholor is at quarterback, where newly acquired Sam Bradford will likely start if he's healthy enough. Bradford, however, has suffered two torn ACLs the last two seasons. For now, take Agholor as a WR4 with low-end WR3 upside.

Fantasy Tip: Huff is curently slated to be the No. 3 wide receiver behind Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Riley Cooper. He could eventually overtake Cooper in playing time, but should be considered a WR5 at best for now.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford may have his best opportunity yet in Philadelphia under head coach Chip Kelly, according to an anonymous NFL executive. "If Bradford had gone anywhere else you wouldn't even be talking about him," the source said. The executive added that there's hope with Kelly and the Eagles after Bradford's struggles with injuries the past couple years. "Chip Kelly is the one guy who can make Bradford a success."
Fantasy Tip: There's still plenty of skepticism and pessimism regarding Bradford's 2015 outlook, and deservedly so. He's suffered two ACL tears in as many seasons. Bradford should be considered a high-risk, medium-reward quarterback for the upcoming fantasy season.
