Giants' James Bradberry: Outstanding inaugural season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry notched 54 tackles (44 solo), 18 defended passes, three interceptions, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery across 15 games in 2020.

Bradberry's presence as one of the league's few true shutdown cornerbacks played an enormous role in the rise of New York's secondary down the stretch in 2020, though his style of play doesn't lend itself to massive fantasy numbers. He played 100 percent of defensive snaps during 12 of 15 contests in his first season with the Giants, and he remains under contract with the team through 2023. He earned Second-Team All-Pro honors in 2020 for his quality of play.

Giants' James Bradberry: Returns from COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Bradberry was considered a high-risk close contact to an infected person, causing him to miss Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Browns. He has cleared the league's COVID-19 protocols and will return to team activities this week to start preparing for a Week 16 matchup against the Ravens. Bradberry will resume duties as the Giants' No. 1 cornerback immediately.

Giants' James Bradberry: On COVID-19 list, out Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants placed Bradberry on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday after he was identified as a close contact of an individual who tested positive for the virus.

Due to the timing of his move to the list, Bradberry won't be available for Sunday's game against the Browns, though he could be activated as soon as Monday if he continues to test negative and exhibits no symptoms of the virus. The Giants noted that Bradberry wasn't infected by an individual within the organization, suggesting his move to the reserve/COVID-19 list is unrelated to offensive coordinator Jason Garrett's recent positive test. In any case, Bradberry's absence for Week 15 is a critical blow to the playoff-hopeful Giants, who are now perilously thin in the secondary. Isaac Yiadom is the lone healthy cornerback on the 53-man roster, so expect the Giants to call up Quincy Wilson and Jarren Williams from the practice squad to add depth at the position.

Giants' James Bradberry: Picks off first pass of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry recorded four solo tackles, an interception and four passes defensed in Sunday's 17-13 loss to the Bears.

Bradberry's interception was a spectacular one, as he ripped the ball out of Allen Robinson's hands along the sidelines having never located the ball in the air. The Giants will take on the 49ers and their struggling passing attack in Week 3.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Comes to terms with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants and Bradberry came to agreement on a three-year, $45 million contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Despite shadowing the opponent's top receiver regularly during his time with the Panthers, Bradberry averaged 4.7 tackles per game while racking up eight interceptions, three sacks and two forced fumbles across 60 contests. He'll immediately serve as the Giants' top cornerback, likely operating opposite second-year pro Deandre Baker.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Drawing interest from over 20 teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

More than 20 teams are interested in pursing Bradberry in free agency, Alaina Getzenberg of the Charlotte Observer reports.

The Panthers appear unlikely to place the franchise tag, which would carry a value of at least $16 million, on Bradberry. He'll thus become an unrestricted free agent March 18, and Carolina is likewise unlikely to match the price tag that other teams around the league are willing to offer the 26-year-old, with his potential deals being in the reported range of $15 million per year. Bradberry appeared in 15 regular-season games with the Panthers in 2019, recording 65 tackles (51 solo), one sack and three interceptions.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Starting contract negotiations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry met with Panthers general manager Marty Hurney on Monday to begin negotiating a new contract, David Newton of ESPN reports.

Carolina has relayed that it wants Bradberry back, but the 26-year-old wants to be compensated for his performance against some of the league's top receivers. Considering the Panthers are in a division with the likes of Julio Jones, Michael Thomas, Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, they'll need a lockdown corner to be competitive moving forward. Bradberry showed those capabilities this year, allowing 6.9 yards per target and just one touchdown. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in March if the two sides can't come to an agreement.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Just three tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry notched three solo tackles and one defended pass during Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Colts.

Coming off back-to-back five-tackle performances, Bradberry came down to earth Week 16. Of course, the 26-year-old's propensity for defended passes notably bolsters his fantasy value in IDP formats.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Notches five tackles again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry was credited with five tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

That's back-to-back five-tackle performances for Bradberry. He currently has 62 tackles (49 solo) in 13 games this season.

November 19, 2019 04:08 PM
Panthers' James Bradberry: Records seven tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry made five solo tackles and two assisted tackles in Sunday's 29-3 loss to the Falcons.

After missing last week's contest with a groin injury, Bradberry made his presence known in the box score, but his seven tackles were nowhere near enough to lift Carolina to a win Sunday. In the midst of the Panthers' "so-so" season, Bradberry has played quite well, already with 42 tackles and a career-high three interceptions in nine contests in 2019. The 26-year-old cornerback certainly carries noticeable fantasy value in IDP formats, despite his team's collective struggles on defense this season.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Clear of groin issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) will play Week 11 against the Falcons, David Newton of reports.

Bradberry missed last week's loss at Green Bay due to the groin injury but practiced fully Friday and is good to go Sunday. The 26-year-old played every defensive snap this season before Week 8 when he sustained the injury, and he should return to his starting role versus Atlanta.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Bradberry sat out Week 10 against the Packers due to a groin injury and was limited in Wednesday's practice, but he now appears back to full health. Barring any setbacks, expect the fourth-year pro to draw his usual start at cornerback during Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Completes limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Bradberry didn't get onto the practice field last week until Friday, and he was ultimately inactive for this past Sunday's loss to the Packers. The fourth-year corner has started this week on a better note, and a full-speed practice would extinguish any worries about his status for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Bradberry was considered a game-time decision but won't be available in Green Bay. Ross Cockrell should start at cornerback in his place and will have a tall task Sunday against Aaron Rodgers.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Packers, David Newton of reports.

Bradberry will be a game-time decision, so the starting cornerback's availability could come down to how well he feels during warmups. If Bradberry is unable to suit up, it will be a huge blow to Carolina's secondary, especially against a passing attack led by Aaron Rodgers.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Watches practice from sidelines
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Bradberry left this past Sunday's win over the Titans with a groin issue, but he revealed after the game he could've returned if necessary since it was just cramping. It may be more serious than that since Bradberry missed the first official practice of the week, but coach Ron Rivera expects Bradberry to return to work Thursday, according to Max Henson of the Panthers' official site. He's trending toward at least carrying an injury tag into Sunday's game against the Packers.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Not dealing with serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) said he experienced cramping during Sunday's 30-20 win over the Titans and could have returned to the contest if necessary, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Bradberry's injury surfaced late in the game, and the Panthers had a sizable lead at the time. There was no reason to risk putting Bradberry back on the field, but his status for the Week 10 matchup against the Packers doesn't look like it's in jeopardy at this time. The Panthers may monitor his practice reps during the upcoming week.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Exits Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Titans, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

It's unclear how Bradberry suffered the injury, but he exited late in the fourth quarter, so it would be a surprise to see him come back. As long as he's out, however, look for Ross Cockrell to be deployed as one of the starting cornerbacks.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Picks two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry made 10 solo tackles and intercepted two passes in Sunday's 37-26 win over the Buccaneers.

Bradberry not only led the Panthers in stops, posting double digits in the category for the first time this season, but he also defended a team-high four passes, including a couple of picks. Through six games, Bradberry now boasts 29 tackles and a career-best three interceptions from his nine total passes defended, flashing some improved playmaking on the perimeter.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Defends three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry posted five solo tackles and three defensed passes in Sunday's 34-27 win over the Jaguars.

Bradberry again played all of Carolina's defensive snaps, and with three more passes defended, he now trails only two players league-wide in the category with six overall.
