Summary

Chip Kelly shocked the football world by trading incumbent starter Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams for Sam Bradford. Once reality set in and the NFL draft passed without a rookie quarterback, it became clear that Kelly fully intends to hand the reins of his offense over to the former Oklahoma Sooner and 1st overall pick. Bradford's career has been derailed by injuries -- most notably back-to-back ACL tears that have kept him off the field for more than a year and a half. Bradford's unfulfilled potential hasn't deterred the Eagles from projecting Bradford as an ideal fit for their system. Kelly believes that if Nick Foles (pedestrian talent) and Mark Sanchez (maddening inconsistency as a Jet) can field top 5 offenses in his system, what might Bradford accomplish if he stays healthy? There are plenty of questions facing Bradford this year, beyond the obvious health concerns. The Eagles lost their top receiver, and have turned over the running game to DeMarco Murray. Bradford's fantasy outlook ranges from a top 10, every week starter to someone that ends up on waivers after just a few weeks. (May 16)

Eagles | Sam Bradford perfect for Philadelphia? (Thu May 14, 10:34 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is a perfect fit for Chip Kelly's offense because he can make all the throws with a 'top-notch' arm, is a 'better athlete than people think' and operates best out of a no-huddle attack, according to New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

Our View: Bradford definitely has the mental acumen, quick setup/release, and short-range accuracy to run the Eagles pass offense well. The bigger question is how he'll look after a long layoff from football that reportedly included a deliberation about retirement. The Eagles offense under Chip Kelly has routinely gotten QB1 numbers out of worse talents, so health is the key to Bradford's value this year. He could end up being one of the best late round QB picks of fantasy drafts and has a very easy start to his career.
