Fantasy Analysis
Week 14 Projections
The Vikings continue to keep the playbook under tight wraps, and with good reason. Bradford has been inconsistent, and the offensive line has not been good, forcing many throws on the run. Expect a dose of short to mid-range passes against the Jaguars that will not add up to much at the end of the day.
Passsing: 223 Yards, 1 TD, 0 INT.
Rushing: 2 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Despite a change of scenery in 2015, Bradford did nothing to change the perception that he's a very mediocre NFL starter. Bradford racked up a career high in passing yards and tossed his second-highest number of touchdown passes to end the year as the 23rd-rated fantasy passer, but he looked like the same ol' Sam that we saw with the Rams. Putting aside three season-ending 300-yard outings, Bradford's week-to-week production lacked consistency, which was nothing new, and he was still prone to throwing occasionally ugly interceptions, which also was nothing new. In addition, the notoriously brittle signal caller missed two contests due to a concussion and an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. The Eagles' decision to select Carson Wentz No. 2 overall in the draft obviously slammed the door on Bradford's chances of becoming the team's long-term starter. Barring an unexpected trade, Bradford, who is entering his age-29 season, will operate as a stopgap ahead of Wentz, who is commonly recognized as a project. New head coach and play-caller Doug Pederson plans to utilize a conservative, run-oriented "West Coast-ish" scheme. With Bradford expected to operate as a game manager in a run-first attack with only Jordan Matthews, Zach Ertz and Darren Sproles as reliable targets, and with Carson Wentz waiting in the wings, Bradford clearly is a stopgap player and a stopgap fantasy option in what will be a hard-to-predict quarterback timeshare.

Passing: 3000 Yards, 14 TD, 10 INT.
Rushing: 75 Yards, 0 TD.
