Sam Bradford (QB, PHI) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper


CURRENT ADP: ~133 Overall (QB 17)

BALLER MOVE: Target in Later Rounds as QB2

ANALYSISSam Bradford was the first overall pick in 2010 and was set to be the franchise quarterback of the St. Louis Rams. His career to date has been riddled with injuries, and with a sub-par supporting cast in St. Louis, Bradford never lived up to his hype. This past off-season, he was shipped off to Philadelphia in exchange for Nick Foles.

In Bradford’s first season, he played all 16 games and completed 354 passes, the most ever by a rookie quarterback. He threw for 3,512 yards, 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions with a 60% completion percentage and a quarterback rating of 76.5.

In 2012, Bradford was a healthy and had his best season, throwing 3,707 passing yards, 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions with a QB rating of 82.6, despite a talentless receiving core comprised of Danny Amendola, Brandon Gibson and Chris Givens. However, he hasn't been healthy since, having played his last regular season game in week 7 of 2013.

Still, Bradford was never given a Pro Bowl caliber wide receiver and dealt with constant coaching and scheme changes. If he can stay healthy, Chip Kelly believes that Bradford is the right man to lead his offense. If Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez can put up solid numbers under Kelly, then Bradford can do so easily.

Bradford has real weapons at his disposal for the first time in his career. The Eagles drafted receivers -- Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor -- early in each of the past two drafts. They also boast Riley Cooper, veteran tight end Brent Celek and budding star tight end Zach Ertz, not to mention a very strong run game with DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles.e.

Bradford’s ADP for quarterbacks is currently 20th, behind Marcus Mariota, Jameis Winston and Colin Kaepernick, all of whom Bradford should out-perform. Bradford should be a great backup fantasy quarterback on draft day.
