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.

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 17:31:54 -0800

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.
