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. In spite of the questions, it's clear that Bradford will open the season as the #1 and will only lose his spot through injury or poor play. If reports about a contract extension are true, we have to assume he'll be given a long leash to boot. (August 16)

Eagles | Sam Bradford aces preseason test (Sun Aug 30, 09:56 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford completed all 10 of his passes for 121 yards and three touchdowns during the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 29. 'I thought he was really poised out there, had a really good command of what we were doing, really located the football. I thought he played really well,' head coach Chip Kelly noted.

Our View: Bradford looked as good as he has since his rookie year in St. Louis. His ability to stay healthy for the entire season is in question, but his ability to effectively pilot this offense is looking very good. He's worth a leadoff QB streaming pick after 10-12 quarterbacks are off of the board.

Eagles | Sam Bradford will play (Fri Aug 28, 09:19 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, but head coach Chip Kelly wouldn't say how much Bradford would play.

Our View: They'll want to keep 'Glass Joe' healthy, so the answer might be 'two plays' depending on how the offensive line performs. We don't totally trust his ability to stay healthy as well as have been generally underwhelmed by what we see when he stays on the field, so right now we have him as a QB2.

Eagles | Sam Bradford impresses in first game (Mon Aug 24, 05:56 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford played solidly in his first action with the Eagles. WR Jordan Matthews said Bradford was great in the pocket. Bradford himself said it felt good to get back on the field and to take his first hit.

Our View: Bradford has the accuracy to be good in the Chip Kelly offense. Fantasy owners who add Bradford as a QB2 are only worried about his lack of durability. Bradford's current ADP reflects those concerns. He's coming off the board at QB15 (10.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Eagles | No problems for Sam Bradford (Thu Aug 20, 12:09 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) has not suffered any setbacks during training camp, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Our View: This matches reports from all observers. That being said, we want to see him take a few preseason hits and bounce up before we're truly comfortable drafting him as a cheap QB1.
