After three consecutive limited practices this week, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford seems poised to return to the field soon. Bradford, who missed the last three weeks with a bone bruise in his left knee, is questionable to play on Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears.
Bradford returned to practice for the first time in two weeks on Thursday and got some work in. He remained a limited participant in practice on Friday and Saturday, bringing further hope to Minnesota that he could suit up in Week 5 and return behind the center. It would be a significant boost for a Vikings' offense that lost starting running back Dalvin Cook to a torn ACL in Week 4. Bradford's return would elevate the fantasy stock of Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, who both are top-25 fantasy receivers when Bradford is healthy.
If Bradford is unable to start, Case Keenum will make his third-consecutive start. He should not be on the fantasy radar in season-long leagues or in DFS.
