Sam Bradford dreadful in Week 2 loss

Sam Bradford completed 17-of-27 passes for 90 yards and an interception as the Cardinals got dominated by the Rams 34-0.

Fantasy Impact

It was a dreadful performance. Arizona's offense didn't even cross midfield until the second to last play of the game. Pitifully, Bradford averaged just 3.3 yards per attempt. There is no reason for the Cardinals to start him next week versus the Bears, but an official announcement has yet to be made.

Sam Bradford disappointing in opener

Sam Bradford completed 20-of-34 yards for just 153 yards and an interception in Sunday's 24-6 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact

Bradford wasn't impressive at all today. He wisely targeted Larry Fitzgerald a team high 10 times, but this was a game Washington controlled throughout. Bradford's ugly performance in Week 1 only increases the chance we see Josh Rosen this year.

Sam Bradford completes all six pass attempts vs Saints

Sam Bradford completed 6-of-6 passes for 61 scoreless yards in Friday night's second preseason game versus the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Bradford attempted just one pass in his preseason debut last week, so it was nice to see him look good with more action. He's still expected to start the season as Arizona's starter, but rookie Josh Rosen will push him for snaps as the year rolls along. Rosen also looked good versus the Saints last night.

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.
