    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford had the highest adjusted completion percentage on deep passes of 20 yards or more in 2016, converting on 57.4 percent of such throws. Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (57.1 percent) and New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (56.1 percent) finished second and third, respectively.

    Huddle Up: A common misconception about Bradford is that his completion percentage is only so high because he throws so many short passes, but this stat should disprove that. Either way, the fact remains that the former No. 1 overall draft pick had a really good showing in his first year with the Vikings, and shouldn't be overlooked by owners who elect to choose their QB1 late in deeper drafts.

  • Posted: 7/8/2017 7:22pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was the most accurate passer under pressure and most accurate on throws over 20 yards last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

    Huddle Up: While those statistics are encouraging, it doesn't change the fact that he plays in a dink-and-dump passing attack. Bradford projects as a low-upside QB2.

  • Posted: 4/25/2017 11:22am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford has not talked about a possible contract extension with the Vikings yet. Bradford added that he's not going to sweat his current status.

    Huddle Up: We don't even know who will be starting for Minnesota next season between Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater. It would be unwise for the Vikings to give an expensive extension to Bradford at this point as he could merely be their backup. Whoever starts will be in backup fantasy quarterback territory anyway.

  • Posted: 2/23/2017 6:28pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford's future with the team beyond 2017 isn't set in stone, according to general manager Chris Spielman, and Spielman said the future of the quarterback position remains 'in flux.'

    Huddle Up: Bradford's future with Minnesota likely depends on the health of Teddy Bridgewater. In the meantime, Bradford is locked in as the starter for 2017, but he is merely a midrange QB2 for fantasy purposes.

  • Posted: 2/22/2017 9:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford totaled six touchdown passes over the final two weeks of the season - a total that surpassed the number of interceptions he threw all season (five).

    Huddle Up: Bradford played at least 14 games for the fourth time in his career last season, but 2016 marked the first time in those years he threw fewer than 13 interceptions. He has arguably the best supporting cast he's ever had at the moment with Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph all coming off career years. The Vikings are going to need to address their offensive line if they hope to keep Bradford mostly healthy again next year, but he has emerged as a matchup-based QB2 in fantasy at the very least.

  • Posted: 1/3/2017 11:53am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford has earned the right to be the starting quarterback of the Vikings, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

    Huddle Up: Bradford may begin offseason activities as the starter, but Teddy Bridgewater won't be pushed over lightly. He'll be coming off a gruesome season-ending injury that ended his sophomore year before it even started. Bradford was a supremely efficient passer this season, leading the league with a 71.6 completion percentage. He's just not a reliable weekly fantasy starter.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 9:20pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 25 of his 33 pass attempts for 250 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Chicago Bears. He finished with a 71.6 percent completion rate to set the NFL single-season record. He also established career bests for yards (3,877), interception percentage (0.9) and passer rating (99.3).

    Huddle Up: Bradford was picked up in an emergency when Teddy Bridgewater went down, and it will be interesting to see how Bridgewater progresses and how the Vikings handle the QB situation. Bradford proved he can be a legitimate No. 1 QB and fantasy option when he stays healthy.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 3:41pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford finished 34-of-50 for a career-high 382 yards and tied another personal best with three touchdown passes in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Two of Bradford's three scores came in the final 4:20 - well after the game had been decided - but DFS players will certainly take this performance from a quarterback who came pretty cheap. The loss knocks Minnesota out of the playoff race, so it is fair to wonder if the Vikings will let Shaun Hill or Taylor Heinicke run the show in Week 17 versus the Chicago Bears.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 10:33pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 24 of his 34 pass attempts for 292 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also ran four times for 17 yards.

    Huddle Up: Bradford had a decent yardage total, in fact his second-highest of the season. However, he has had just three games with two touchdowns this season and he is more of a low-end QB2 in all fantasy leagues going forward.

  • Posted: 12/1/2016 7:05pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (ribs) returned for the start of the second half against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Bradford appears to have avoided a serious injury, but his value is limited to leagues that start two quarterbacks.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 2:06pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was 20-of-28 for 169 yards and a touchdown in a 30-24 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Minnesota is effective against the pass, but so is Arizona. Its 195.2 yards per game is second in the NFL, so Bradford's low number doesn't come as a surprise. He remains nothing better than a weak QB2 in deep formats.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 12:45pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was 31-of-40 for 307 yards with two touchdowns and an interception Sunday, Nov. 13, in a 26-20 loss to the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Even though Bradford was scoreless in every quarter but the second, where Minnesota scored 20 points, Bradford appears to be back on the map. He looked solid in another 300-yard game. As long as he has people like offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur watching him, Bradford is a decent QB1.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 3:03pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was 31-of-40 for 273 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Nov. 6, in a 22-16 loss to the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Time will tell what having a new offensive coordinator will do for Bradford. The new OC is Pat Shurmur, who has worked closely with Bradford in the past. Bradford remains a decent low QB1 or high QB2 choice as long as Shurmur is in charge.

  • Posted: 10/31/2016 9:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 23 of his 37 pass attempts for 228 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 8 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Oct. 31.

    Huddle Up: Bradford's offensive line was shaky, and the run game continue to do very little to alleviate pressure for him. He found Stefon Diggs late in the game for a touchdown, but he was nearly shut out. He'll look to bounce back in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions, a pass defense ranking 19th by allowing 259.4 yards per game while giving up an NFL-high tying 19 passing scores.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 4:02pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 22 of his 30 pass attempts for 271 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Bradford is still just a little over a month into his Minnesota experience, but he has learned the offense quickly and looks like he has been in the system for years. He has emerged as a decent low-end QB1 or must-start QB2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. However, he has a bye in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/3/2016 9:02pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 26 of his 36 pass attempts for 262 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 4 game against the New York Giants. He also ran four times for six yards.

    Huddle Up: Bradford has stepped into the lineup in Minnesota and led the team to three victories in three starts, quickly learning the offense. He is still more of a QB2 than a regular starting option. Next up is a home game against the Houston Texans in Week 5.

  • Posted: 9/18/2016 6:16pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (hand) was taken to the locker room for X-rays in the second quarter of the Week 2 game against the Green Bay Packers due to a hand injury.

    Huddle Up: Bradford departed briefly, but he returned to the sidelines. He has a visible laceration on his left non-throwing hand, too.

  • Posted: 9/17/2016 1:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford is expected to start against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2 after receiving all of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice this week.

    Huddle Up: It is not known how much Bradford will be asked to throw in Week 2, but the Vikings likely will run the ball more often. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Bradford.

  • Posted: 9/14/2016 9:25pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford took all of the first-team snaps in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: While the team said they are undecided on their starter for Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers, it appears Bradford is on his way to his first start with the team. Right now Bradford should be considered as a low-end QB2 in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 9/4/2016 8:19am ET

    Minnesota Vikings tight ends coach Pat Shurmur told the Vikings that he believes QB Sam Bradford will be able to learn offensive coordinator Norv Turner's scheme quickly. Shurmur was Bradford's offensive coordinator with the Philadelphia Eagles last season.

    Huddle Up: Bradford is expected to sit out Week 1 while he learns the offense but has a chance to start in Week 2. Bradford will have solid weapons to work with on offense but should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in all fantasy leagues in part because of his injury history.

  • Posted: 9/3/2016 7:34am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was acquired by the Minnesota Vikings Saturday, Sept. 3, according to sources. It is not known what the Eagles will receive in return.

    Huddle Up: Bradford will be the starting quarterback for the Vikings this season and will have some weapons to work with in the passing game. He should still be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback since the Vikings likely will be more of a running team with Adrian Peterson. Chase Daniel likely will start for the Eagles but should also be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

  • Posted: 9/3/2016 7:33am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is a player the Minnesota Vikings have inquired about after they lost QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) for the season.

    Huddle Up: Bradford is the Eagles starting quarterback but could be available depending on the asking price. He most likely will stay with the Eagles but should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback no matter where he plays.

  • Posted: 8/27/2016 9:36pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford completed 17 of his 20 pass attempts for 167 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Bradford has done everything asked in Philadelphia, and he looks like the favorite to win the starting job since Carson Wentz is injured. If Bradford can secure the starting job in Philadelphia and hang onto it, he would be a decent QB2 in most fantasy formats as long as he can stay healthy.

  • Posted: 8/16/2016 11:45am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford and the rest of the starters will play into the second quarter in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Bradford will have his first chance to add some kind of spark to his midrange QB2 status in fantasy.

  • Posted: 8/3/2016 4:19pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford appears comfortable with the playbook and is ahead of where he was last season at this point, in the opinion of The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

    Huddle Up: If you believe in Bradford, he can be be had essentially for nothing as he's currently the 32nd QB coming off the board -- or undrafted in the majority of standard leagues -- according to the latest ADP rankings.
