Vikings | Sam Bradford remains week-to-week

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 07:51:47 -0700

A second opinion from Dr. James Andrews confirmed that Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) has no structural damage in his left knee, according to multiple sources. He is considered week-to-week due to a bone bruise.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford practiced on a limited basis twice last week before being ruled out for Week 3's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will rest for the foreseeable future in order to allow the joint to calm down. Case Keenum will continue to start in Bradford's absence but he should not be considered a viable option in any fantasy format. Owners of players such as Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs should expect a decline in offensive production as long as Bradford is sidelined.

Vikings | Sam Bradford seeks second opinion

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:21:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he is seeking a second opinion on his ailing knee.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain when Bradford will be able to return to game action, so it will be Case Keenum under center again this Sunday. That news immediately means a downgrade to the fantasy value of Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen, etc. Diggs and Thielen should only be considered as WR3 or WR4 plays, while Rudolph remains a low-end TE1 for his ability in the red zone. The Buccaneers DST is also a favorable unit to play against Keenum.

Vikings | Week 3 injury report for Vikings

Vikings | Sam Bradford ruled out Week 3

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 10:40:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) has been ruled out for Week 3 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: While it's a bummer for Bradford's owners hoping for an encore to his Week 1 performance, owners of Kyle Rudolph, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen are probably the most upset by this news, as backup Case Keenum is a considerable step down from Bradford. Rudolph is still worth a start in most leagues, but Diggs and Thielen are probably WR3s at best. Streamers of defense/special teams units should feel good about the Buccaneers this week, however.

Vikings | Sam Bradford limited

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:46:31 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is shaping up to be a legitimate game-time decision. It would behoove Bradford owners to have a backup plan in place in case Bradford is sidelined again. That backup plan should not be Case Keenum.

Vikings | Sam Bradford puts in limited practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 13:49:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford could be a game-time decision again this week, so have a backup plan in place in case. Case Keenum is not a good backup plan. Pick up someone like Josh McCown, Jacoby Brissett or DeShone Kizer if you're really desperate.

Vikings | Sam Bradford improving

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 08:33:30 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was feeling better Tuesday, Sept. 19, and he's being considered day to day, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford hasn't been a particularly quick healer in his career, and he's anything but a safe bet to play in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If he goes, he's still a backup option in fantasy.

Vikings | Sam Bradford dealing with bruise?

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 11:51:32 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is believed to have a bone bruise in his injured knee, according to a source. Bradford will be given an injection after which the Vikings will assess how the knee responds and go from there.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford's absence was evident in the Vikings' Week 2 loss. The offense sputtered coming off a supremely successful Week 1 outing. Have a backup plan at quarterback in place for now. Case Keenum will start again if Bradford can't play, but don't start Keenum in traditional fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Sam Bradford could be back for Week 3

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 07:28:10 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) just had swelling and discomfort from taking a shot to his knee, and he could return in Week 3, according NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. His status will depend on how he responds to treatment.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford would be a backup or emergency option in fantasy against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Vikings | Sam Bradford decision down to the wire

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 21:47:48 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) will be put through pregame workouts before the team decides if he will play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford's status remains up in the air, and if you were planning on starting him in Week 2, you need to have a backup plan in place.

Vikings | Sam Bradford travels with team

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 13:04:39 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) traveled with the team for their Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers but is still questionable for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford may be a game-time decision for the game, so owners will need to check the inactive list. He is coming off an impressive Week 1 performance and has a solid receive corps to work with in the passing game. Owners may want to consider other options for their lineups because of Bradford's uncertain status.

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 12:26:55 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford probably will be active for the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but owners will need to check on his status before the game. He is coming off an outstanding Week 1 performance but will be a risky Week 2 option because of his injury. Owners may want to consider healthier options to use in their lineups.

Vikings | Minnesota concerned about Sam Bradford?

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 10:04:36 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) reportedly underwent an MRI this week, and the team has "guarded optimism but concern" about his availability for Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has suffered a few knee injuries during his playing days, so any more knee issues will create some degree of panic. Until further notice, however, expect him to play against the Steelers, although it might not be a bad idea to begin working on a backup plan. Joe Flacco and Jared Goff are two quarterbacks with solid matchups this week who should be available in most leagues.

Vikings | Sam Bradford limited again

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 14:29:54 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford probably will be able to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He is coming off a successful Week 1 performance but will be facing a tougher defense this week. Bradford can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some leagues.

Vikings | Sam Bradford limited Wednesday

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 15:33:52 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford probably will be fine for Week 2, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the opening game and can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback against a solid Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

Vikings | Sam Bradford nearly perfect in Week 1 win

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 21:20:55 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford got his 2017 season out to a terrific start Monday, Sept. 11, against the New Orleans Saints, completing 27-of-32 passes for 346 yards. He added three touchdowns and threw no interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Granted, it came against the woeful Saints defense, but wow, what an outstanding performance from the former Offensive Rookie of the Year nonetheless. Most will argue that Bradford isn't an ideal weekly QB1, but more performances like this should have him in the conversation. At the very least, it's possible he develops into a lower-end QB1 for most formats.

Vikings | Adam Thielen being used in slot

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 12:21:37 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen has been playing in the slot in three-receiver formations in an effort to further utilize his versatility. QB Sam Bradford said it has also helped develop better chemistry with different defensive looks.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen enters the 2017 season as somewhat of an unsung hero after breaking out for 69 catches, 967 yards and five touchdowns last year. Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph take a lot of that attention away from Thielen, but Thielen deserves WR3 merit nonetheless.

Vikings | Sam Bradford in better situation

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 15:09:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford said he is in a better situation this season than he was last season because he had an entire offseason to practice with the team and has a better understanding of the offense.

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings acquired Bradford a week before the start of the 2016 season, but he still had a decent season with 3,877 yards and 20 touchdowns. He will have a chance to improve on those stats in 2017 since he will know the offense better. Owners probably should consider Bradford as a No. 2 quarterback as most fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Sam Bradford efficient on deep throws

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 19:31:52 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford had the highest adjusted completion percentage on deep passes of 20 yards or more in 2016, converting on 57.4 percent of such throws. Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (57.1 percent) and New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (56.1 percent) finished second and third, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: A common misconception about Bradford is that his completion percentage is only so high because he throws so many short passes, but this stat should disprove that. Either way, the fact remains that the former No. 1 overall draft pick had a really good showing in his first year with the Vikings, and shouldn't be overlooked by owners who elect to choose their QB1 late in deeper drafts.

Vikings | Sam Bradford better under pressure

Sat, 08 Jul 2017 19:22:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was the most accurate passer under pressure and most accurate on throws over 20 yards last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

Fantasy Tip: While those statistics are encouraging, it doesn't change the fact that he plays in a dink-and-dump passing attack. Bradford projects as a low-upside QB2.

Vikings | Sam Bradford extension not discussed

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 11:22:35 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford has not talked about a possible contract extension with the Vikings yet. Bradford added that he's not going to sweat his current status.

Fantasy Tip: We don't even know who will be starting for Minnesota next season between Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater. It would be unwise for the Vikings to give an expensive extension to Bradford at this point as he could merely be their backup. Whoever starts will be in backup fantasy quarterback territory anyway.

Vikings | Questions marks around Minnesota QB spot

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 18:28:42 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford's future with the team beyond 2017 isn't set in stone, according to general manager Rick Spielman, and Spielman said the future of the quarterback position remains "in flux."

Fantasy Tip: Bradford's future with Minnesota likely depends on the health of Teddy Bridgewater. In the meantime, Bradford is locked in as the starter for 2017, but he is merely a midrange QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Vikings | Sam Bradford took care of the ball in 2016

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 21:34:42 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford totaled six touchdown passes over the final two weeks of the season - a total that surpassed the number of interceptions he threw all season (five).

Fantasy Tip: Bradford played at least 14 games for the fourth time in his career last season, but 2016 marked the first time in those years he threw fewer than 13 interceptions. He has arguably the best supporting cast he's ever had at the moment with Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph all coming off career years. The Vikings are going to need to address their offensive line if they hope to keep Bradford mostly healthy again next year, but he has emerged as a matchup-based QB2 in fantasy at the very least.

Vikings | Sam Bradford should start in 2017

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 11:53:40 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford has earned the right to be the starting quarterback of the Vikings, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford may begin offseason activities as the starter, but Teddy Bridgewater won't be pushed over lightly. He'll be coming off a gruesome season-ending injury that ended his sophomore year before it even started. Bradford was a supremely efficient passer this season, leading the league with a 71.6 completion percentage. He's just not a reliable weekly fantasy starter.

Vikings | Sam Bradford finishes career year

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 21:20:57 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 25 of his 33 pass attempts for 250 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Chicago Bears. He finished with a 71.6 percent completion rate to set the NFL single-season record. He also established career bests for yards (3,877), interception percentage (0.9) and passer rating (99.3).

Fantasy Tip: Bradford was picked up in an emergency when Teddy Bridgewater went down, and it will be interesting to see how Bridgewater progresses and how the Vikings handle the QB situation. Bradford proved he can be a legitimate No. 1 QB and fantasy option when he stays healthy.

Vikings | Sam Bradford has huge game

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 15:41:42 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford finished 34-of-50 for a career-high 382 yards and tied another personal best with three touchdown passes in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Two of Bradford's three scores came in the final 4:20 - well after the game had been decided - but DFS players will certainly take this performance from a quarterback who came pretty cheap. The loss knocks Minnesota out of the playoff race, so it is fair to wonder if the Vikings will let Shaun Hill or Taylor Heinicke run the show in Week 17 versus the Chicago Bears.

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will have all of his weapons to work with this week but has not posted great numbers this season. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Bradford.

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 11:52:05 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford should be able to play in Week 15 despite the injury but has not posted great numbers this season. Owners in all leagues should consider Bradford as a No. 2 quarterback and should not have him in their starting lineups.

Vikings | Sam Bradford limited Wednesday

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 13:07:49 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has posted decent numbers for the Vikings over the last four games with three touchdowns and one interception during that span but has only 14 touchdowns on the season. He should be able to play against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15 but probably can be passed over in most leagues.

Vikings | Sam Bradford tosses just one TD

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 22:33:57 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 24 of his 34 pass attempts for 292 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also ran four times for 17 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford had a decent yardage total, in fact his second-highest of the season. However, he has had just three games with two touchdowns this season and he is more of a low-end QB2 in all fantasy leagues going forward.

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 19:05:30 -0800

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (ribs) returned for the start of the second half against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Dec. 1.

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (undisclosed) was helped off the field against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Dec. 1. He was replaced by QB Shaun Hill.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford took a hard shot and appeared to be in pain as he walked off the field. Given his injury history, the situation needs to be monitored.

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.

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.

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.

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.
