Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

Bradford had truly become a dink and dunk quarterback in his hyper-efficient 2016 season, though he did look good in the limited sample size we saw in 2017 as well. Of course that was essentially just the opening Monday night game against the Saints as Case Keenum took over and Bradford never returned. Since the 2013 preseason, Bradford has torn his left ACL twice, and missed nearly all of last season with complications and bruising to the same knee. With that in mind it's hard to think the issues with his knee will ever go away. He has a solid group of talent around him in Arizona, much as he did in Minnesota, but entering his age 31 season Bradford has managed to start just 49 games since coming into the league, and continues to suffer from chronic knee pain. It's part of the reason that the Cardinals never figured him for a long term answer and selected former UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen in the first round.

2018 Season Outlook

Based on what we saw last season the over/under on Bradford starts in 2018 is probably somewhere in the 8-10 range. And that assumes he plays well enough to hold onto the starters job. Josh Rosen didn't have the highest ceiling of the first round quarterbacks in this draft, but he was widely considered the most pro ready, plays with a chip on his shoulder, and should be pushing Bradford from the outset of camp. With the coaching change we may see a shift from the previously pass-heavy offense and it's difficult to think Bradford both begins and ends the season fantasy relevant.
