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.

Eagles | Philly's QBs split reps

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:27:06 -0700

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.

Eagles | Sam Bradford may report soon

Fri, 06 May 2016 16:55:52 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford may report for offseason workouts in the next week or two, according to LB Connor Barwin, who has recently talked with Bradford.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is upset with the current quarterback situation with the Eagles, but the team has said that he will be the starting quarterback this season. Bradford played well at times in 2015 but is a risky option for owners because of his injury history. He likely will be a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues in 2016.
