Eagles | Nick Foles ready to improve

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 19:41:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles said the indecisiveness that led to him missing several open receivers in the team's Week 1 game is a "correctable" issue.

Fantasy Tip: Despite missing plenty of big-play opportunities, Foles still finished with 322 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1, and he should continue to pile up yards and touchdowns as long as he is running Chip Kelly's offense. His $7,500 salary (15% of cap) in FantasyScore ranks 10th among quarterbacks this weekend, and he offers plenty of upside for the price against an Indianapolis secondary that is average at best.

Eagles | Nick Foles picked off twice in preseason opener

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 19:27:19 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed six of his nine pass attempts for 44 yards in the preseason opener against the Chicago Bears Friday, Aug. 8, but he was also picked off twice.

Fantasy Tip: Foles was intercepted just two times all of last season, but fantasy owners shouldn’t be too concerned just yet. Still, Foles is expected to take a slight step backward this season, but he should still be a No. 1 fantasy type heading into the regular season.

Eagles | Nick Foles focusing on improving

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 14:16:17 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles recently said his goals for this season include continuing to move better in the pocket, to be more efficient and to stay tight. He added that he wants to be smart with the ball and find his checkdowns early. Foles admitted improvement is "an everyday thing, but so far, we're looking good."

Fantasy Tip: Despite losing DeSean Jackson, the Eagles should still be one of the most prolific offenses in the league under head coach Chip Kelly. Foles averaged 22.5 fantasy points per game last season, which would have put him in QB5-QB6 territory for a full 16 game season. Consider him a QB1 in the Eagles' potent offense.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy praises Nick Foles

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 12:21:26 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy praised QB Nick Foles, saying this is the year Foles has a great season. "Nick, he wants to play, he wants to get better," McCoy said. "He's playing lights-out even in camp, but he still wants to be at a higher level. He's at that peak where people know him like, 'Man, this Foles, is he that good?' Because you see the stats, you see the numbers. I think this is the year he blows 'em out like, 'Yeah, I'm Nick Foles. I'm Philadelphia's quarterback. I'm the guy.' And this is the year he blows it away."

Fantasy Tip: Foles surprised everyone and had a fantastic season in 2013, but losing his best wide receiver in DeSean Jackson may be a lot to overcome in 2014. Temper your expectations with Foles.

Eagles | Nick Foles had most yards per attempt

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 08:34:29 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles led all of quarterbacks last year with 9.1 yards per attempt in the team's quick offense, and he also led the league with a passer rating of 119.2. Foles had a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 27:2.

Fantasy Tip: Foles burst onto the scene unexpectedly and had a magical season in 2013, and Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense meshed perfectly with Foles' strong arm. Unfortunately, he'll lose his most trusted target in DeSean Jackson. Expecting a repeat might be asking a lot. Foles will have some great games, but we're hesitant to stamp him as an elite QB1 this quickly.

Eagles | OC impressed with Nick Foles' smarts

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 14:09:14 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has impressed new quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave with his ability to process everything that is happening on the field quickly. "We know he's a gifted athlete. He can throw the ball exactly where he wants to. He can add air, add touch. He can add velocity and really drive it when it's needed. But to see the way that he can visualize formations, coverages, and process what he sees has been impressive," Musgrave said. Musgrave thinks Foles can work on getting rid of the ball faster, taking fewer hits and moving the ball forward with his legs when needed.

Fantasy Tip: Foles was impressive in Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense last year, but the loss of DeSean Jackson is troubling. Temper your expectations a bit for Foles in his follow-up campaign. Trusting him as a true QB1 is risky.

According to the collective bargaining agreement, he isn't even eligible to sign an extension from his rookie year contract until after the 2014 season. "I've always said how I play, how our team is, how I am as a leader -- that will all take care of that when the time comes," Foles said. "I'm really just having fun out here. I'm having fun with my teammates. I'm having fun playing the game."
