When Eagles QB Sam Bradford returns in training camp and preseason, pay attention to his accuracy. Of the skills that HC Chip Kelly most values in a quarterback, he has made clear that accuracy is atop the list.

“I think in this league, getting someone who can throw it,” Kelly said. “You’d better have repetitive accuracy, you’d better have someone that can win a game throwing the football. And that’s what we’re looking for.”

It’s difficult to believe there’s truly a quarterback competition if Bradford is healthy, especially because the Eagles sacrificed Nick Foles and a second-round pick to acquire Bradford. Plus, they are paying Bradford almost $13 million. Yet Kelly stuck to his decree about competition.

“You’ve still have to go out and earn your jobs,” Kelly said. “If Sam throws 14 interceptions and Mark throws 14 touchdowns I can’t sit there and tell the team that Sam’s going to start and Mark’s not going to start. It doesn’t work that way."

“We’d like to get a quarterback in here that we can hang our hat on and build the rest of the team around,” Kelly said.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said it’s not lost on Kelly that the Eagles will have their third opening-day starting quarterback this season, and that Kelly has yet to find the franchise quarterback that the best teams have. The story also said that Kelly believes Bradford can be that franchise QB, and said there's a high percentage shot he'll bounce back from his ACL injury. Those who cover the team aren't buying there's a QB competition, and the only way we'll see Mark Sanchez is if Bradford isn't ready. Bradford is looking like a possible low-risk, high-reward QB option this year. Given the high number of plays the offense likes to run, and the QBs who have succeeded in the offense (Mike Vick, Nick Foles and Sanchez) thus far under Kelly, Bradford certainly has a chance to produce solid, fantasy numbers.
