Sam Bradford is a good pick for fantasy football

As reported by syracuse.com, Sam Bradford is among 5 players worth reaching for fantasy football.

2. Sam Bradford, quarterback, Philadelphia Eagles

Yes, Sam Bradford has been constantly injured throughout his five-year career, but the idea of marrying his accuracy and arm talent to Chip Kelly’s quarterback-friendly scheme in Philadelphia is intoxicating. If Bradford stays healthy, he has the upside to be one of the best quarterbacks in fantasy football. Kelly turned less talented quarterbacks into useful fantasy players. Imagine what he can do with Bradford.

Chip Kelly has already shown what he can do with Sam Bradford this preseason. He did take some hits but was still able to get back up and play. Bradford’s throws are accurate and on time, but his health is always a concern for everyone.

Mark Sanchez Ranks #1 out of 32 backup quarterbacks

According to NFL.com, Mark Sanchez ranks #1 out of 32 backup quarterbacks.

It’s possible that Sanchez starts the season, but the Eagles are paying Bradford $12.985 million this year to Sanchez’s $2.5 million. If Bradford isn’t fully healthy by Week 1, Sanchez gives Chip Kelly a player familiar with the system and one who led the Jets to consecutive AFC title games. His inspired play tailed off down the stretch in 2014, but I’m also basing this off fit: Philly’s run-heavy, “QB-proof” attack is an outstanding landing spot for our top-ranked backup.

Sam Bradford’s health is always going to be a concern this up-coming season. As you already know, Bradford has not played football since 2013. Keep in mind that Sanchez could be our starting quarterback. I have my doubts that Tim Tebow will be doing anything this season. Tebow would be useful in redzone wildcat plays.
