 Sam Bradford, MIN (Bye: 9)
25
Height: 6’4”   Weight: 224   DOB: 1987-11-08   Age: 29
College: Oklahoma   Draft: 2010 Round 1 (1)

2017 (Projected)MIN 356 539 3,879 21 8 18 46 0 282.6  

Outlook: The Vikings 2016 season was an absolute calamity. Still reeling after kicking away a sure post-season win, the Vikings lost their franchise quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater to a devastating knee injury late in training camp. The team was forced to make a trade for Bradford just prior to the season. And while the team got off to a white hot 4-0 start, future HOFer Adrian Peterson was lost for the year with a knee injury in Week 2, while injuries piled up on the offensive line, contributing to the team losing 8 of their final 11 games to finish at 7-9.

Considering the fact he joined the team a few scant weeks before making his debut, Bradford had a fine statistical season. He played in 15 games, racking up a 20-8 touchdown to interception ratio, and career highs in yardage (3,877) and completion percentage (71.6). He helped to make Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph fantasy assets, and at the very worst kept the franchise afloat while injuries ravaged the roster around him. Despite the decent numbers, Bradford and the Vikes had serious trouble putting up points consistently, scoring 20 or fewer in half of their games. During a mid-season four game losing streak their offensive coordinator bailed, the run game remained in the witness protection program, and their defense showed cracks.

With the dark cloud of the 2016 season moving on, things do look brighter for Bradford and the offense. They've added three new starters on the offensive line, added explosive talent in the backfield, and should get more production (it's nearly impossible to get less!) from former 1st round receiver Laquon Treadwell. Bradford with have a full offseason to get more comfortable with the system as well. This will probably be the most talented team Bradford has led, but the fact remains he's never surpassed 21 touchdown passes in a season, and this Vikings still have a "run the ball and play defense" mentality. If the line can gel, and Bradford can improving the timing with his receivers, I do think he can hit 25 touchdowns and 4,000 yards which would put him squarely in the QB15-20 territory as a mid-range QB2.


 Mike Glennon, CHI (Bye: 9)
26
Height: 6’6”   Weight: 225   DOB: 1989-12-12   Age: 27
College: North Carolina State   Draft: 2013 Round 3 (11) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G

2017 (Projected)CHI 284 474 3,365 17 14 20 77 0 244.0  

Outlook: One of the more confusing off-seasons belongs to the Chicago Bears. Most knew that it was time for the Jay Cutler era to end, but if you pegged the Bears signing Mike Glennon to a huge deal, then giving up a ton of draft stock to move up one spot to select Mitchell Trubisky, I have a palm you can read.

Glennon comes to the Bears on what is essentially a one-year, $18-million dollar deal. That's middle of the road starting QB money, but the problem is that doesn't quite jibe with how this roster is built. At some point after signing Glennon, the Bears either had a change of heart, or fell so deeply in love with Trubisky they couldn't pass him up. So while the rookie from North Carolina waits his turn and the Bears give the keys to Glennon, what can we expect from a fantasy perspective? Frankly, not much. A few factors are going to conspire to make Glennon an extremely fringe fantasy asset.

First, the Chicago offense is predicated on the run game. Since John Fox became head coach two years ago, the team has never been higher than 22nd in pass attempts, so it's highly unlikely Glennon's stats will be boosted by sheer volume. Next, Glennon himself hasn't seen meaningful snaps in nearly three years. That season he went 1-6 as a starter and threw only ten touchdowns compared to six interceptions. Sure, he had a quietly effective rookie year (which is probably the only reason he got the big contract he did), but that was many moons ago, and clearly Tampa didn't think he was the franchise quarterback because they drafted Jameis Winston. Look, Glennon will probably turn out to be a fine backup quarterback one day. He's terribly limited athletically, and basically someone whose best asset is not screwing things up. He might have some value in a two-quarterback league, but he has such a limited upside, that I don't think he's currently roster material in standard fantasy leagues.


 Trevor Siemian, DEN (Bye: 5)
27
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 215   DOB: 1991-12-26   Age: 25
College: Northwestern   Draft: 2015 Round 7 (33) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G

2017 (Projected)DEN 280 458 3,255 17 10 11 55 0 236.3  

Outlook: He wasn't spectacular in his first season as a starter, but Trevor Siemian was also rarely the reason that his team lost games. Current reports indicate that 2016 first round NFL Draft pick Paxton Lynch has shown some signs of improvement in OTA's and minicamp and certainly his upside is believed to be higher than that of Siemian, but it's Siemian who has been the more consistent of the two. With an 18-to-10 touchdown-to-interception ratio and 3,401 passing yards in 14 starts, Siemian produced enough numbers in 2016 that will likely make the Broncos signal caller at least to start the season. The presence of Lynch should be a concern for fantasy owners, but the generally mediocre fantasy production from Siemian should be the primary reason that he goes undrafted in most leagues. Not much has changed in the Denver offense that should lead fantasy owners to believe that there will be a substantial improvement in the Denver passing game this season.


 Brian Hoyer, SF (Bye: 11)
28
Height: 6’2”   Weight: 215   DOB: 1985-10-13   Age: 31
College: Michigan State   Draft:
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G

2017 (Projected)SF 215 359 2,550 15 7 22 55 0 193.0  

Outlook: The 49ers' starting quarterback job has not yet been completely determined, but most team experts seem to believe that it'll be free agency acquisition Brian Hoyer who takes snaps for the team in Week 1. Hoyer is new to San Francisco but actually has more knowledge of the Kyle Shanahan offense than other players on the roster as he spent a year with Shanahan on the Browns in 2014. Hoyer is coming off of a shortened 2016 season where he threw for 300-plus yards in all four of his starts before breaking his non-throwing arm. Hoyer also avoided throwing an interception despite the team going 1-5 during that span.

While he should be an upgrade from what the 49ers had in 2016, Hoyer is not a draftable asset himself in most formats, especially given that he hasn't locked up the starting role and likely won't make it all the way through the season as the starter if the team has poor results. He'll have some weeks where he does perform well, which does make him a potential bye week replacement-type player, but there's a good chance that he'll struggle to produce fantasy starting-caliber numbers in most weeks.

 Jared Goff, LAR (Bye: 8)

College: California   Draft: 2016 Round 1 (1)

2017 (Projected)LAR 218 382 2,371 11 11 17 35 0 166.1  

Outlook: Jared Goff was historically bad as a rookie, throwing just 5 touchdown passes with 7 interceptions in seven games as a starter. It's true that he faced ridiculous amounts of duress - in fact, 40.4 percent of his passes attempts were pressured - but Goff was also awful when the pocket was calm. There just aren't many positives to pull from the Rams passing game last year, which is a big reason why there were so many changes this off-season.

The Rams did attempt to address their offensive line deficiencies by making the huge acquisition of Andrew Whitworth - one of the top left tackles in the game. They also added center John Sullivan who performed mostly well for the Vikings throughout his career and will certainly be an upgrade from what the team had a season ago. Unfortunately, the team didn't do much to address the disastrous wide receiver situation in free agency, although they did make a few potentially decent moves in the draft.

Goff projects to be one of the worst starting quarterbacks in the league for fantasy purposes, so stay far away on draft day. His lone saving grace for dynasty formats may be that the team is essentially financially handcuffed to him for at least another season or two. The physical talent is certainly here, but it's tough to believe that Goff is going to suddenly ascend to being a viable fantasy option this season.
