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.

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.

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.

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.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles said he's not worried about signing a contract extension with the team. 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."

The Philadelphia Eagles' organized team activities have displayed their intent to move a lot faster and increase the amount of plays run, in the observation of Nick Fierro. They were quick in moving to the line of scrimmage even before the whistle blew. "We're just running as many reps as we can so we can get it on tape and teach them," head coach Chip Kelly said. "... What we're trying to do is, can we get a maximum number of reps for everybody, because we do have three and four groups, both offensively and defensively? Let's just get a lot of stuff on tape so we can teach off it."
Fantasy Tip: Of course, such an overwhelming pace allowed the offense to dominate last year before they fell apart, for numerous reasons. Of course LeSean McCoy should have another elite year, but the other fantasy-relevant members of this offense in their second year with this system -- Nick Foles, Jeremy Maclin (despite his injury), Riley Cooper, Zach Ertz -- could be in line for huge steps forward with this continuity.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles said he needs to get better and he has a lot to work on. "I know everybody wants to label this, after a good season, but I need to get better," said Foles. "I don't look at this season as, 'Aw, man I did good!' I have a lot of stuff to work on . . . We didn't win the last game, and a lot of that goes on the quarterback . . . I'm going to keep working on my footwork. I'm going to keep working on my throwing mechanics, continue on reading defenses, every little thing I can think of."

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said QB Nick Foles will have competition for the starting job this off season, and he said he won't shy away from the competition.
