FANTASY PLAYS: Outlook for Brown minus Big Ben, QB streams (The Associated Press)

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 01:14:27 PDT

Some notable injuries are forcing many fantasy football players into extra maneuvering to construct the right lineup this week. Cam Newton has a bye, but Ben Roethlisberger is also out and could miss anywhere from two to six weeks with some knee issues. Andy Dalton is coming off a pair of 20-point fantasy games and faces the Browns, who have allowed an AFC-high 16 TD passes.

Sam Bradford looks forward to return to Philly (The Associated Press)

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 21:05:11 PDT

Sam Bradford is thinking more about reconnecting with old friends than sticking it to the team that traded him eight days before the season opener. The former Eagles quarterback returns to Philadelphia for the first time since his abrupt departure when he leads the unbeaten Minnesota Vikings to Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday. ''I really developed some close bonds with those guys,'' Bradford said.

When the Eagles were 3-0, the schedule called for a bye. Into Philadelphia on Sunday come the Minnesota Vikings, the NFL's only unbeaten team. ''I think it's 0-0 now, and we start a new season,'' says Mike Zimmer , coach of the 5-0 Vikings.

Sam Bradford returns to Philadelphia on Sunday aiming to extend Minnesota's unbeaten start to the season in the latest twist to what has been a surreal year for the former Eagles quarterback. Seven months ago, the 28-year-old put pen to paper on a two-year $36 million contract with Philadelphia which encouraged him to believe he would head into the season as the Eagles signal-caller. Within weeks, however, Bradford's future in Philadelphia was cast into question when the Eagles brokered a deal with the Cleveland Browns for second pick in the draft -- and promptly snapped up highly rated rookie Carson Wentz.

Chargers' Rivers, Falcons' Ryan rank among ironman leaders (The Associated Press)

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 13:39:02 PDT

The opening question to Matt Ryan's weekly news conference made the quarterback nervous. When he was asked about his long streak of consecutive starts, Ryan almost gasped. Ryan hasn't missed a start for the Atlanta Falcons in 105 consecutive regular-season games, a streak that began late in the 2009 season.

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 08:57:13 PDT

While recognizing this isn’t the best way to judge public perception, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan’s average fantasy football draft position before this season is telling. Ryan was coming off a mediocre season. Ryan was being drafted in Yahoo fantasy leagues, on average, 28th among NFL quarterbacks.

Before heading to Minnesota, Bradford helped Wentz in Philly (The Associated Press)

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 23:36:54 PDT

Carson Wentz owes some of his success to Sam Bradford. Bradford certainly wasn't thrilled when the Eagles drafted Wentz with the No. 2 overall pick, but he served as a mentor to the rookie throughout the summer until he was traded to Minnesota on Sept. 3. ''When I first got here, it was good to have Sam and Chase (Daniel),'' Wentz said Wednesday.

Sam Bradford has no reason to be insecure about playing at Philadelphia this weekend. The Vikings (5-0) paid a steep price for Bradford on Sept. 3.

Bears look for points, Packers look for a running back (The Associated Press)

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 12:36:52 PDT

On Tuesday, the running back was buried on the Kansas City Chiefs' depth chart. By Thursday night, Davis could be a very important player in the backfield for the Green Bay Packers when they host the Chicago Bears in the 193rd meeting of the NFL's oldest rivalry. Injuries have hit the running back position for Green Bay, a troubling development for an offense that is also struggling to get consistency from the Aaron Rodgers-led passing attack.

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 10:29:29 PDT

Sam Bradford goes back to Philadelphia on Sunday for the first time since the Eagles traded him to the Minnesota Vikings, and he is bringing all of his knowledge of rookie starter Carson Wentz and the offensive system of first-year coach Doug Pederson. The Vikings (5-0) are on top of the NFC and Bradford has won all four of his starts since replacing Shaun Hill under center in Week 2. Bradford landed on his feet and said he has recovered from the ego bruising that comes from being traded for the second time in three years.

The Chicago Bears have a short week to prepare to face the Green Bay Packers on the road Thursday night. On the bench, you have a healing Jay Cutler, who entered the season as a sure thing — one of the few sure things the Bears seemed to have on offense.
