    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he is seeking a second opinion on his ailing knee.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain when Bradford will be able to return to game action, so it will be Case Keenum under center again this Sunday. That news immediately means a downgrade to the fantasy value of Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen, etc. Diggs and Thielen should only be considered as WR3 or WR4 plays, while Rudolph remains a low-end TE1 for his ability in the red zone. The Buccaneers DST is also a favorable unit to play against Keenum.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 1:46pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Bradford is shaping up to be a legitimate game-time decision. It would behoove Bradford owners to have a backup plan in place in case Bradford is sidelined again. That backup plan should not be Case Keenum.

  • Posted: 9/20/2017 1:49pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Bradford could be a game-time decision again this week, so have a backup plan in place in case. Case Keenum is not a good backup plan. Pick up someone like Josh McCown, Jacoby Brissett or DeShone Kizer if you're really desperate.

  • Posted: 9/20/2017 8:33am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was feeling better Tuesday, Sept. 19, and he's being considered day to day, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

    Huddle Up: Bradford hasn't been a particularly quick healer in his career, and he's anything but a safe bet to play in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If he goes, he's still a backup option in fantasy.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 11:51am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is believed to have a bone bruise in his injured knee, according to a source. Bradford will be given an injection after which the Vikings will assess how the knee responds and go from there.

    Huddle Up: Bradford's absence was evident in the Vikings' Week 2 loss. The offense sputtered coming off a supremely successful Week 1 outing. Have a backup plan at quarterback in place for now. Case Keenum will start again if Bradford can't play, but don't start Keenum in traditional fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 7:28am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) just had swelling and discomfort from taking a shot to his knee, and he could return in Week 3, according NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. His status will depend on how he responds to treatment.

    Huddle Up: Bradford would be a backup or emergency option in fantasy against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/16/2017 9:47pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) will be put through pregame workouts before the team decides if he will play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Bradford's status remains up in the air, and if you were planning on starting him in Week 2, you need to have a backup plan in place.

  • Posted: 9/16/2017 1:04pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) traveled with the team for their Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers but is still questionable for the game.

    Huddle Up: Bradford may be a game-time decision for the game, so owners will need to check the inactive list. He is coming off an impressive Week 1 performance and has a solid receive corps to work with in the passing game. Owners may want to consider other options for their lineups because of Bradford's uncertain status.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 12:26pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Bradford probably will be active for the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but owners will need to check on his status before the game. He is coming off an outstanding Week 1 performance but will be a risky Week 2 option because of his injury. Owners may want to consider healthier options to use in their lineups.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 10:04am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) reportedly underwent an MRI this week, and the team has 'guarded optimism but concern' about his availability for Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Bradford has suffered a few knee injuries during his playing days, so any more knee issues will create some degree of panic. Until further notice, however, expect him to play against the Steelers, although it might not be a bad idea to begin working on a backup plan. Joe Flacco and Jared Goff are two quarterbacks with solid matchups this week who should be available in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 2:29pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Bradford probably will be able to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He is coming off a successful Week 1 performance but will be facing a tougher defense this week. Bradford can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some leagues.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 3:33pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Bradford probably will be fine for Week 2, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the opening game and can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback against a solid Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

  • Posted: 9/11/2017 9:20pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford got his 2017 season out to a terrific start Monday, Sept. 11, against the New Orleans Saints, completing 27-of-32 passes for 346 yards. He added three touchdowns and threw no interceptions.

    Huddle Up: Granted, it came against the woeful Saints defense, but wow, what an outstanding performance from the former Offensive Rookie of the Year nonetheless. Most will argue that Bradford isn't an ideal weekly QB1, but more performances like this should have him in the conversation. At the very least, it's possible he develops into a lower-end QB1 for most formats.

  • Posted: 8/24/2017 12:21pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen has been playing in the slot in three-receiver formations in an effort to further utilize his versatility. QB Sam Bradford said it has also helped develop better chemistry with different defensive looks.

    Huddle Up: Thielen enters the 2017 season as somewhat of an unsung hero after breaking out for 69 catches, 967 yards and five touchdowns last year. Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph take a lot of that attention away from Thielen, but Thielen deserves WR3 merit nonetheless.

  • Posted: 7/23/2017 3:09pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford said he is in a better situation this season than he was last season because he had an entire offseason to practice with the team and has a better understanding of the offense.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings acquired Bradford a week before the start of the 2016 season, but he still had a decent season with 3,877 yards and 20 touchdowns. He will have a chance to improve on those stats in 2017 since he will know the offense better. Owners probably should consider Bradford as a No. 2 quarterback as most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 7/12/2017 7:31pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford had the highest adjusted completion percentage on deep passes of 20 yards or more in 2016, converting on 57.4 percent of such throws. Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (57.1 percent) and New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (56.1 percent) finished second and third, respectively.

    Huddle Up: A common misconception about Bradford is that his completion percentage is only so high because he throws so many short passes, but this stat should disprove that. Either way, the fact remains that the former No. 1 overall draft pick had a really good showing in his first year with the Vikings, and shouldn't be overlooked by owners who elect to choose their QB1 late in deeper drafts.

  • Posted: 7/8/2017 7:22pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was the most accurate passer under pressure and most accurate on throws over 20 yards last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

    Huddle Up: While those statistics are encouraging, it doesn't change the fact that he plays in a dink-and-dump passing attack. Bradford projects as a low-upside QB2.

  • Posted: 4/25/2017 11:22am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford has not talked about a possible contract extension with the Vikings yet. Bradford added that he's not going to sweat his current status.

    Huddle Up: We don't even know who will be starting for Minnesota next season between Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater. It would be unwise for the Vikings to give an expensive extension to Bradford at this point as he could merely be their backup. Whoever starts will be in backup fantasy quarterback territory anyway.

  • Posted: 2/23/2017 6:28pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford's future with the team beyond 2017 isn't set in stone, according to general manager Chris Spielman, and Spielman said the future of the quarterback position remains 'in flux.'

    Huddle Up: Bradford's future with Minnesota likely depends on the health of Teddy Bridgewater. In the meantime, Bradford is locked in as the starter for 2017, but he is merely a midrange QB2 for fantasy purposes.

  • Posted: 2/22/2017 9:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford totaled six touchdown passes over the final two weeks of the season - a total that surpassed the number of interceptions he threw all season (five).

    Huddle Up: Bradford played at least 14 games for the fourth time in his career last season, but 2016 marked the first time in those years he threw fewer than 13 interceptions. He has arguably the best supporting cast he's ever had at the moment with Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph all coming off career years. The Vikings are going to need to address their offensive line if they hope to keep Bradford mostly healthy again next year, but he has emerged as a matchup-based QB2 in fantasy at the very least.

  • Posted: 1/3/2017 11:53am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford has earned the right to be the starting quarterback of the Vikings, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

    Huddle Up: Bradford may begin offseason activities as the starter, but Teddy Bridgewater won't be pushed over lightly. He'll be coming off a gruesome season-ending injury that ended his sophomore year before it even started. Bradford was a supremely efficient passer this season, leading the league with a 71.6 completion percentage. He's just not a reliable weekly fantasy starter.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 9:20pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 25 of his 33 pass attempts for 250 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Chicago Bears. He finished with a 71.6 percent completion rate to set the NFL single-season record. He also established career bests for yards (3,877), interception percentage (0.9) and passer rating (99.3).

    Huddle Up: Bradford was picked up in an emergency when Teddy Bridgewater went down, and it will be interesting to see how Bridgewater progresses and how the Vikings handle the QB situation. Bradford proved he can be a legitimate No. 1 QB and fantasy option when he stays healthy.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 3:41pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford finished 34-of-50 for a career-high 382 yards and tied another personal best with three touchdown passes in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Two of Bradford's three scores came in the final 4:20 - well after the game had been decided - but DFS players will certainly take this performance from a quarterback who came pretty cheap. The loss knocks Minnesota out of the playoff race, so it is fair to wonder if the Vikings will let Shaun Hill or Taylor Heinicke run the show in Week 17 versus the Chicago Bears.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 10:33pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 24 of his 34 pass attempts for 292 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also ran four times for 17 yards.

    Huddle Up: Bradford had a decent yardage total, in fact his second-highest of the season. However, he has had just three games with two touchdowns this season and he is more of a low-end QB2 in all fantasy leagues going forward.

  • Posted: 12/1/2016 7:05pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (ribs) returned for the start of the second half against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Bradford appears to have avoided a serious injury, but his value is limited to leagues that start two quarterbacks.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 2:06pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was 20-of-28 for 169 yards and a touchdown in a 30-24 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Minnesota is effective against the pass, but so is Arizona. Its 195.2 yards per game is second in the NFL, so Bradford's low number doesn't come as a surprise. He remains nothing better than a weak QB2 in deep formats.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 12:45pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was 31-of-40 for 307 yards with two touchdowns and an interception Sunday, Nov. 13, in a 26-20 loss to the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Even though Bradford was scoreless in every quarter but the second, where Minnesota scored 20 points, Bradford appears to be back on the map. He looked solid in another 300-yard game. As long as he has people like offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur watching him, Bradford is a decent QB1.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 3:03pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford was 31-of-40 for 273 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Nov. 6, in a 22-16 loss to the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Time will tell what having a new offensive coordinator will do for Bradford. The new OC is Pat Shurmur, who has worked closely with Bradford in the past. Bradford remains a decent low QB1 or high QB2 choice as long as Shurmur is in charge.

  • Posted: 10/31/2016 9:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 23 of his 37 pass attempts for 228 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 8 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Oct. 31.

    Huddle Up: Bradford's offensive line was shaky, and the run game continue to do very little to alleviate pressure for him. He found Stefon Diggs late in the game for a touchdown, but he was nearly shut out. He'll look to bounce back in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions, a pass defense ranking 19th by allowing 259.4 yards per game while giving up an NFL-high tying 19 passing scores.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 4:02pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 22 of his 30 pass attempts for 271 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Bradford is still just a little over a month into his Minnesota experience, but he has learned the offense quickly and looks like he has been in the system for years. He has emerged as a decent low-end QB1 or must-start QB2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. However, he has a bye in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/3/2016 9:02pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford completed 26 of his 36 pass attempts for 262 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 4 game against the New York Giants. He also ran four times for six yards.

    Huddle Up: Bradford has stepped into the lineup in Minnesota and led the team to three victories in three starts, quickly learning the offense. He is still more of a QB2 than a regular starting option. Next up is a home game against the Houston Texans in Week 5.
