2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Nov-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (11/20): In a shock to no one, Bradford is currently injured. He is sidelined with a concussion and separated AC joint in his non-throwing shoulder. When healthy, he has been extremely underwhelming. Bradford has a TD-to-INT ratio of 11-to-10. He has thrown one or fewer TDs in seven of his nine games and has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns in four games. Bradford, and the Eagles' offense as a whole, has been a massive disappointment.
UPDATE (10/3): All those Fantasy dreams of Sam Bradford have not come true. Through three games, the Eagles offense has looked flat. There's still potential for more, but you should let the other teams in your league wait for Bradford to realize his potential. With three TDs and five turnovers to start the season, Bradford should only be on your radar if you are hard-pressed to find a replacement off the waiver wire.
Bradford was a solid game manager in 2013 when he threw 14 TDs and only four INTs in seven games. However, his season ended in Week 7 when he tore his left ACL. He then tore the same ligament last August, forcing him to miss the entire 2014 season. Sam hasn't thrown for 4,000 yards or more than 21 touchdowns in any year since entering the league in 2010. He is 18-30-1 as a starting QB with only 59 TDs in 49 starts. Bradford has a live arm and a great opportunity in Philly to post strong numbers. The Eagles have had a top-10 passing offense in each of the two seasons with Kelly as their head coach. If healthy, I expect Bradford to win the starting job and approach 30 touchdowns. However, it's still hard to say if he will be ready by Week 1. He is a player to track with continued injury risk. The Eagles have talent at the receiving positions, so their starter will no doubt be a top-12 Fantasy QB and surpass 4,000 yards. I view Bradford as an upside backup QB in the Fantasy market with future starting value.
