Much has been made of the Eagles' quarterback situation this offseason, particularly Sam Bradford's feelings after Philadelphia spent the second overall pick on Carson Wentz.

One other name in the mix is a former 49ers passer in McLeod Bethel-Thompson, who is reportedly set to re-sign with the team, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

In addition to Bradford and Wentz, the Eagles have veteran passer Chase Daniel.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Sam Bradford really started to come on during the second half of last season. He finished as QB24 in 2015, but did struggle very early on in the season. In his first seven games he threw for 9 TDs and 10 INTs, but from Week 9 on he tossed 10 TDs to just four INTs. Over his last three games, he averaged about 345 yards per game and threw five TDs during that span. Bradford also started to show some mobility in the pocket, which bought him time and allowed him some longer completions. With a line that struggled at times last season, Bradford finds himself behind one which should be improved. The team is expected to go back to a more traditional running game rather than one run out of the pistol or shotgun. Bradford should also have the ability to audible more at the line this season.

Fantasy Downside
Bradford comes into this season having to learn another new system with head coach Doug Pederson taking over for Chip Kelly. While Bradford did show more mobility toward the end of last season, he's far from a mobile QB and at times last year went down rather easily. There aren't a lot of proven WR weapons either. Jordan Matthews has been productive out of the slot, but the team lacks outside threats and will be counting on Nelson Agholor to show his first-round worth and Rueben Randle to live up to his potential. TE Zach Ertz appears ready to take off, but we thought the same last season and he started slowly. Perhaps most notable is the team drafted QB Carson Wentz second overall and he can only be held back so long.

Bottom Line
Bradford ranks 32nd on our QB list. The big fear here is Wentz takes over sooner than later. Right now, the team is committed to Bradford, but with what seems like a lack of weapons around him, he's a risky fantasy play until we see how the new offense works. Bradford should be available very late in drafts, but is more of a third QB option right now.
