|After a pair of seasons leading the Jets to the AFC Championship game, Sanchez put together a career year in 2012 with career highs in passing yards with 3,474, passing touchdowns with 26 and rushing touchdowns with 6. All the more impressive is that Sanchez produced despite having his lead receiver (Santonio Holmes) sulk his way through the season and having an aging Plaxico Burress on the other side with no proven third receiver on the roster and tight end Dustin Keller go through another late season swoon. The reward for Sanchez? A chance to compete with former Bronco Tim Tebow to retain his starting job. Not helping matters is that Holmes returns as the teamís lead receiver and Burress has been replaced by raw rookie Stephen Hill. The current plan is for the Jets to rotate Tebow in for a number of plays each game, basically torpedoing any fantasy value Sanchez had. Unless the rotation plan changes, donít add Sanchez to your roster.
|Sam Bradford getting contract extension? -- Tue Aug 4 9:00 am --|
Eagles already working with QB to shore up short-term deal
|The Philadelphia Eagles have interest in tying starting quarterback Sam Bradford to the franchise beyond the upcoming season and have begun discussing a contract extension, according to sources.
Eagles coach Chip Kelly has Bradford taking the first-team reps at training camp ahead of Mark Sanchez, his primary competition for the starting position. Bradford is coming off the second ACL injury of his career, but Kelly wants a quarterback around whom he can build his team, and Bradford has made a strong early impression. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Despite the concerns about Bradford's injury history, Kelly recognizes the potential for Bradford to be a franchise quarterback. It's a very good sign for fantasy owners interested in taking a risk and drafting the former No. 1 overall pick from 2010.
While it's important he stay healthy and we see what he can do in Kelly's offense, there's at least potential for a huge breakout from Bradford, who's making friends quickly in Philly.

QB is reportedly "looking great"
|According to a person familiar with the situation who requested anonymity, Sam Bradford is "looking great", has been in the rehab room close to every day this summer and should be ready to go when training camp opens. That means Bradford should be out on the field for 11-on-11 drills for the start of training camp.
"If I'm not ready for 11 on 11 by training camp, then something has gone horribly wrong,'' Bradford said. "That's the plan right now. We're going to keep plugging away and be ready when camp starts." (NJ.com)|
FF Today's Take: A healthy Bradford is the odds-on favorite to hold off Mark Sanchez and win the Eagles' quarterback competition. The bigger question will be whether or not Bradford's body - and specifically his left ACL - will cooperate. If he stays on the field for all 16 games for only the third time in his career, Bradford has a great shot of becoming a top-10 fantasy quarterback in redraft leagues this season.

"A little more mobile" in latest round of OTAs
|Sam Bradford (ACL) continued to progress in terms of how much he did in practice and looked a little more mobile than he had in the first two weeks of OTAs. Bradford told reporters after practice that he still couldnít definitively say that he would be 100 percent ready for the start of training camp.
As for how the other quarterbacks performed, Mark Sanchez had another Mark Sanchez-practice, in that he looked substantially better than he did a year ago this time. Sanchez took all the first-team reps. (Philadelphia Inquirer)|
FF Today's Take: HC Chip Kelly has promised a legitimate competition, although one would have to think a healthy Bradford would win anything close to a tiebreaker with Sanchez. Regardless, this is good news for the ex-Jet, who appears to be making good progress from the shoulder injury that claimed his 2013 season and may have still affected him during his nine-game run in relief of Nick Foles last year.
