Sam Bradford expected to start Week 1

In an interview with NFL Network, rookie wide receiver Christian Kirk said, “To be honest, just with what the coaches have said and just the way it’s looking, I’m pretty sure Sam (Bradford) is going to start.”

Fantasy Impact

We probably should've expected this, given the $20 million the Cardinals paid Bradford, but that was also before they traded up to snag Josh Rosen. While Bradford likely gets the Week 1 start, we haven't seen him hold up behind offensive lines much better than this one. Whether it be due to injury or play, we'd expect Rosen to make some starts in 2018, though neither is likely to be a weekly fantasy contributor that you want to rely on.

Sam Bradford 'feels great' after on-field drills

Bob McManaman of The Republic reports that the Cardinals increased Sam Bradford's participation during on-field drills at Cardinals' minicamp and the 30-year-old veteran looked good in shirts and shells. Head coach Steve Wilks walked away impressed, saying "He looked good. You look at some of his throws, they were right on point. Just good accuracy."

Fantasy Impact

The same article also praises Josh Rosen's progress. The plan has always been for Bradford to start as long as his troublesome left knee holds up. Assuming he can get through the summer without setbacks, Bradford's superb accuracy makes him a solid QB2 with weekly streaming appeal.

Sam Bradford to sign with Cardinals

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford intends to sign with the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

With Drew Brees, Kirk Cousins and Case Keenum off the board -- sort of -- the Cardinals go to their next best option of the impending free agents, Sam Bradford. Although he's battled injuries throughout his career, he is one of the most accurate signal callers in the league. A veteran leader, he should pick up where the effective version of Carson Palmer left off in Arizona. It wouldn't surprise me if the Cardinals also addressed the long-term future of the QB position in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Sam Bradford undergoes surgery

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) underwent knee surgery on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Since Bradford underwent a knee scope on Tuesday, he will continue to be sidelined indefinitely. However, now into the second half of the regular season, the Vikings could elect to place him on the injured reserve list, officially ending his season. With Teddy Bridgewater returning to the active roster Wednesday, I fully expect the team to shut Bradford down.

Sam Bradford's knee injury potentially career-ending?

Sam Bradford's knee injury is "much worse than people know" and "could be career-ending," according to Jay Glazer, who spoke about the situation on the Fox pregame show on Sunday morning. Earlier this week, Bradford traveled to New York recently to begin Regenokine treatments to address inflammation in his surgically repaired left knee.

Fantasy Impact

Bradford has a lengthy injury history, especially when it comes to knees, having torn his left ACL on two separate occasions. After impressing in Minnesota's Week 1 victory over the New Orleans Saints, Bradford missed three straight weeks and then had to leave Week 5's matchup against the Chicago Bears. At this point, Glazer's report and Bradford traveling to New York to get Regenokine treatments on his knee are both troubling signs for the quarterback's future. Teddy Bridgewater, the Minnesota quarterback who has been out since August of 2016 with his own injury issues, could be cleared to practice as early as this upcoming week.
