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.
