CSN Philly - [Full Article]

Eagles TE Zach Ertz has been impressed in his time working with QB Sam Bradford.

“We’ve been throwing for the past three weeks and I can honestly say I’ve thrown with [Andrew Luck], [Nick Foles] and other guys, and I don’t think I’ve thrown with a guy who has a stronger arm than Sam Bradford,” Ertz said.

“He hasn’t been able to really truly get his full legs underneath him. But the ball still comes out effortlessly, and it’s a lot of fun to run routes with him.”

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
After suffering an ACL injury in Week 7 last year, Bradford has been able to practice in full during camp and will see his first preseason action in the second week. While rehabbing his lower body during the offseason, Bradford was able to add upper body strength and the added velocity on his throws is noticeable. He's also taking more shots down field in practice, which has been one of the knocks on Bradford over the last few seasons, as he's often referred to as "Captain Checkdown" by his detractors. For the first time in his career, he also could have a bona fide receiving corps led by a resurgent Kenny Britt, who has had an outstanding camp thus far. There's no debating that Bradford has the physical tools to succeed and now that he's in his third year in Brian Schottenheimer's offense, he may finally be ready to turn the corner in his fifth season.

Fantasy Downside
Durability has been an issue for Bradford dating back to his days at Oklahoma when he suffered a shoulder injury during his Junior season. As a pro, he's missed 15 games over the past four years and is coming off major reconstructive knee surgery. While some will point to his lack of weapons and the fact that he had to learn three different offenses in his first three years in St. Louis, the fact remains that Bradford has yet to put up eye-popping numbers throughout his career. His YPA is a meager 6.3 as he's often criticized for not taking more shots downfield. Plus, the Rams are fully committed to being a run-first team in 2014, which will likely cap his scoring potential.

Bottom Line
Bradford ranks as our 25th overall quarterback and he can be had as late as the 16th round in both standard and PPR formats. At this point he's a low-end QB2 with a ceiling of that of a high QB2. Even with the addition of Britt and the continued development of Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey, it's highly unlikely that Bradford is going to put up enough numbers in St. Louis' run-first attack to merit a fantasy roster spot. If he starts strong, you could also search for him on your waiver wire during the season.
