If Eagles QB Sam Bradford isn't ready for training camp, 'something has gone horribly wrong'

NJ.com - [Full Article]

"If I'm not ready for 11 on 11 by training camp, then something has gone horribly wrong,'' Eagles QB Sam Bradford, who is coming back from his second ACL tear in two years, said. "That's the plan right now. We're going to keep plugging away and be ready when camp starts.''

Fantasy Impact: 

It appears Bradford is on track for camp. Over the last two seasons, Philadelphia quarterbacks have averaged 16.7 passing game-only fantasy points. Bradford isn’t much of a runner, but he adds about 0.7 FP per game as a rusher. That adds up to 17.4 FP, or about what Eli Manning averaged as the #13 QB in 2014. The Eagles’ offense has lost their top receiver – DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin – in each of the last two seasons, but Jordan Matthews and Zach Ertz are emerging and the team added Nelson Agholor in the draft. If Bradford ends up starting for the Eagles, we wouldn’t expect anything more than high-end QB2 numbers, but this is a definite system upgrade due to the overall effectiveness of Chip Kelly’s offense.
