Week 3: at Carolina Panthers

All QB vs CAR

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Sam Bradford got to start with all-world running back Adrian Peterson - for one game. Now Peterson is out indefinitely with a torn meniscus cartilage in his knee, and Bradford will work with a committee of Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata at running back. So far, Bradford has displayed good chemistry with Stefon Diggs (11 targets for 9/182/1 receiving), Adam Thielen (five for 4/41/0) and tight end Kyle Rudolph (eight for 3/31/1) en route to his victory over the Packers (22/31 for 286 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with four sacks taken for -32 yards). One concern is that the offensive line let Bradford get hit 10 times last weekend - hardly a formula for keeping Bradford upright and slinging the football. The Panthers' pass rush has generated four sacks through two games, tied for 15th in the NFL, while averaging 198 yards passing allowed (seventh in the league), with three passing TDs given up vs. four interceptions generated. Over the first two weeks of the season, the Panthers have averaged 19 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (11th-least in the NFL); and 14 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (second-least); with 9.1 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (10th-most). Bradford and company have a tough road trip ahead of them.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 1 vs TEN (18 / 33 / 236 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 8 / 0 rush)

We saw why the Vikings went out and sold their souls for Sam Bradford on Sunday, as Shaun Hill certainly didn't scare the Tennessee Titans defense one bit. That meant that the run game was stymied which made it harder for the offense to move the ball. It's not that Hill was bad, because he wasn't. Hill lacks velocity on his throws and didn't seem to be able to stretch the field much either. Multiple times, Hill threw the ball at a defender and was lucky none of them went the other way. The first was on a 3rd and 5 early in the first quarter. The pass was meant for Stefan Diggs, but was thrown inside where the defender was. Another was late in the second quarter when he threw a ball down the middle where there was no receiver, and luckily the ball sailed over the defender as well. Hill didn't do horribly, but he didn't really make a case for himself as a long-term answer.

Vikings | Sam Bradford expected to start (Thu Sep 15, 11:15 AM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford is expected to start in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers. Bradford has been adept at learning the offense, and head coach Mike Zimmer may not announce it or inform the team because the news came out that QB Shaun Hill would start last week.

Our View: After the blanket of mediocrity that was Shaun Hill, we knew this was coming. If he knew one play and that play was "hey Diggs, run to the fire hydrant and turn in," that would still be an improvement over Hill. We still wouldn't have coughed up a first for him, but now that they have him, Bradford should be the guy. That said, we wouldn't go near him this week—even if the Packers don't blast him, his playbook is going to be limited.

Vikings | Shaun Hill doesn't work with top unit (Thu Sep 15, 12:26 AM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill did not take first-team reps with the team in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14. QB Sam Bradford took all of the first-team snaps at practice.

Our View: Hill held on for a game, but we saw why the Vikings pulled the trigger on the Bradford trade. They overpaid, but staying with Hill all season was risky for a team with Super Bowl aspirations.

Vikings | Minnesota QB undecided for Week 2 (Mon Sep 12, 01:52 AM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill started and was able to pick up the win in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans. However, head coach Mike Zimmer said coaches will huddle before deciding whether Hill or QB Sam Bradford will start in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

Our View: We'd be shocked if Bradford isn't named the starter for the Vikings in Week 2. The team debuts their new stadium on Sunday Night Football against the Packers.
