We scour the news around the NFL to bring you what matters most to you and your dynasty team: the most current news on players, both superstars and the relative unknowns, and analysis to decipher the respective situations. These are many of the major stories and not meant to be an exhaustive look at all the recent happenings around the league.
After being listed as questionable for last Sunday’s game, fantasy owners were shocked to see the plethora of reports regarding the knee of Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford. The Week 1 game against New Orleans gave hope that Bradford was primed for a big season, his last under contract with Minnesota. But, Chris Mortensen reported that Bradford was seeking a second opinion on the knee from noted Dr. James Andrews. Dr. Andrews was the one who performed the surgeries on Bradford’s left ACLs in the past so a visit back to Dr. Andrews cannot be viewed as a positive sign. Tom Pelissero later tweeted, “No setback for #Vikings QB Sam Bradford. No doctors have suggested structural issues. Knee just didn't improve much.” He also tweeted, “Sam Bradford's visit to Dr. Andrews confirmed what #Vikings believed, sources say: Bone bruise. Still week to week.” The good news is that injury appears just to need time to heal. In two-quarterback leagues, Bradford makes an intriguing “buy low” opportunity.
