|With Josh McDaniels at the controls and Sam Bradford coming off an impressive rookie season, there were high hopes for the Rams offense entering 2011. Unfortunately, the offense fell flat as Bradford struggled through an injury marred campaign and McDaniels stubbornly refused to alter his offensive approach despite having an array of offensive players ill-suited to carry out his marching orders. Bradford missed six games with a high ankle sprain but struggled mightily in his ten starts, throwing for just 2,164 yards and six touchdowns. McDaniels was fired after the season and replaced by former Jets offensive coordinator Brian Scottenheimer. Scottenheimer will employ a version of the west coast offense and that bodes well for Bradford, who excelled as a rookie in Pat Shurmurís WCO. While Bradford is expected to take a leap forward in 2012, it is doubtful he will be a useful fantasy option. The Rams scored 16 touchdowns last season and lost their top wide receiver (Brandon Lloyd) and the offensive line has significant issues once again. How many touchdowns are in order for the Rams in 2012? Canít be too many more than 16. That makes it pretty hard to predict a breakout season for Bradford in 2012. He remains a solid option in dynasty formats but he is a low end QB2 in redraft formats.

Pederson: "I think he's done an outstanding job"
|Doug Pederson said the Eagles' quarterback depth chart remains unchanged. Sam Bradford is the No. 1 quarterback and will be the starter when the season begins. Chase Daniel is No. 2, and rookie Carson Wentz is the No. 3 quarterback.
"I've said that from day one," Pederson said.
FF Today's Take: Despite recent discussion of "open competition" the job is Bradford's to lose and unless he shows terribly during the pre-season he will be the starter Week 1. Given the new system and Bradford's limited ability, he's nothing more than a QB2 in redraft leagues.

OTAs begin next week
|Connor Barwin told 94.1 WIP in Philly he received a text from Bradford saying the quarterback will report for Eagles voluntary workouts today, per Howard Eskin.
"He'll be here today. I talked to him. He'll be here this week -- he'll be here today," Barwin said. "I feel like I'm the Sam Bradford like news -- reporting for Sam. But yeah, he'll be here today."
FF Today's Take: Bradford's "holdout" will end prior to the Eagles OTAs which begin next week. He reportedly demanded a trade when the team traded in up in the draft to select QB Carson Wentz. Perhaps Bradford has come to his senses and realizes that doing the best he can for the Eagles in 2016 is the correct path.
