Eagles | Nick Foles leads in turnovers

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 09:18:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles leads the league with 10 turnovers this year (seven interceptions and three fumbles). Last season, he had 29 touchdown passes, including the playoffs, and just two interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Foles' excellent 2013 season was mainly a byproduct of Chip Kelly's new fast-tempo offense. He's still a serviceable quarterback with plenty of weapons, but we're seeing that he's still young and learning. Foles is a matchup play but is better as a QB2.

Eagles | Expectations too high for Nick Foles?

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 10:07:40 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles entered last season as the full-time starter and jumped into a situation with head coach Chip Kelly's offense catching other teams off guard because of its ingenuity. Also, the offensive line was mostly veteran and 100 percent healthy. Foles didn't have to do much to be successful. Coming into the season, expectations were that he'd be the franchise quarterback. However, Foles has struggled due to lack of experience and a changing scene around him. "He's playing on a team where we're less than perfect in a lot of ways," offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur acknowledged. Foles has made some terrible throws this year, and he isn't always setting his feet or sliding in the pocket. "I'm progressing. I'm continuing to learn. I might not go out there and have the stats that are perfect, but I'm going to keep on working to be the quarterback I know these (coaches) want me to be," Foles said.

Fantasy Tip: Foles' FantasyScore salary this week is $8,100 (16.2% of cap) against the New York Giants. He's a risk as your starter, and he's preferably a QB2 in standard leagues.

Eagles | Nick Foles working on accuracy

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 16:44:11 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles said he has been working on improving his accuracy during practice this week after missing some throws during the Week 4 game. "I've definitely tried to just take some shots, stretch them out a little bit," Foles said. "I need to be a little more accurate, that's what I'm working on this week, working on that, and staying clean in the pocket so I can deliver the ball to our guys where they can go up and make a play, not where the ball lands in front of them."

Fantasy Tip: Foles is coming off a game where he threw two interceptions and zero touchdowns but will look to improve his play against the St. Louis Rams. Foles costs $8,100 on FantasyScore and could be a good option to use against the Rams.

Eagles | Nick Foles struggling deep

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 06:45:42 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has completed 25.6 percent of his throws over 20 yards this season. He is on pace to make 156 attempts of 20 or more yards. He had 55 attempts and completed 45 percent of them last season.

Fantasy Tip: Foles doesn't have a pure deep threat now that DeSean Jackson is gone. He has a decent matchup against the St. Louis Rams this week. At $8,100 (16.2% of the cap), he's a weak QB1 on FantasyScore.

Eagles | Nick Foles not hitting deep passes

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 14:44:23 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles did not complete any of his 10 passes that traveled at least 20 yards down the field in Week 4, and two of those passes were intercepted. Foles completed 35.3 percent of his passes that went at least 20 yards last season but is completing only 17.2 percent of those throws this season. Head coach Chip Kelly said he does not believe his deep passes are being affected by his banged up left shoulder because the passes are not being underthrown.

Fantasy Tip: Foles has not been able to duplicate his 2013 season so far in 2014 but was able to put up solid numbers in the three games before Week 4. Foles could get more time in the pocket moving forward since Lane Johnson has returned from his suspension. Foles should still be seen as a solid option to start for most owners.

Eagles | Nick Foles adequate in win

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 20:02:18 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 21 of his 37 pass attempts for 331 yards, one touchdowns and one interception in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Sept. 15. He also ran four times for 22 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Foles went over 300 yards for the second straight week, and he has posted a total of three TD strikes. He remains a Top 10 fantasy option at his position, despite the lack of TD passes through the first two games.

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 sharp

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 21:07:06 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 19 of 29 passes for 179 yards with one touchdown and one interception during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21. He led the offense to three scoring drives in the first half.

Fantasy Tip: Foles and Chip Kelly's offensive system seem to be made for each other, and Foles is a starting-caliber fantasy quarterback in any format.

Eagles | Nick Foles bounces back

Sat, 16 Aug 2014 12:11:47 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles performed well against the New England Patriots Friday, Aug. 15, following a poor outing in the team's first preseason game. Head coach Chip Kelly said he was pleased with Foles' play and how he moved the team down the field.

Fantasy Tip: Foles should continue to progress as the regular season inches closer. He is solidly in QB1 territory.

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.

Eagles | Nick Foles not worried about extension

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 09:00:02 -0700

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."

Eagles | Offseason offensive work looks fast

Fri, 30 May 2014 06:33:55 -0700

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.

Eagles | Nick Foles wants to get better

Tue, 07 Jan 2014 10:43:08 -0800

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 QB Nick Foles said he has worked on some mechanical adjustments. "Keep a good base (when on the move.) Keep your left shoulder down and drive the football," Foles said. "Sometimes when there's some pressure in your face, I'll throw off my back foot, my shoulder will rise a little bit, and the ball will sail. I know in that situation, I'll have to sidestep or do something where I can drive the ball downward to where my receiver gets the opportunity to catch the ball."

Fantasy Tip: Not a big surprise here. Vick isn't worth owning right now, and Foles remains a low-end No. 1 fantasy QB.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick (hamstring) said he expects to be fully healthy following the team's Week 12 bye. He was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Vick isn't guaranteed to get the starting QB job back if he's healthy, however, based on the way Nick Foles has played in his absence. Leave Vick on your bench or send him to the waiver wire if you need an extra spot.

Eagles | Nick Foles has another strong stat line

Sun, 17 Nov 2013 16:27:32 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles threw for 298 yards in Week 11 against the Washington Redskins, and he added a career-high 47 yards and one rushing score. He has started just 11 games in his career and has already exceeded a passer rating of 100 five times, each in the last six games. He has a 152.8 passer rating during his team's three-game winning streak. Since 1960, only former Dallas Cowboys QB Craig Morton had a better streak during a three-game span in 1969. Foles also has thrown 199 passes without an interception, and that is the second-longest streak in franchise history behind QB Michael Vick (224).

Eagles | Still not naming starting QB

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 12:54:59 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said he won't name a starting quarterback as long as QB Michael Vick (hamstring) remains sidelined due to injury. QB Nick Foles has started in his absence and will continue to take first-team repetitions in practice Tuesday, Nov. 12. "I think what we've done for the last two weeks has worked for us pretty good," Kelly said. "So we're going to stick to that. It's gotten us 16 touchdowns, no interceptions and two wins, so why would we change?" Foles has 10 touchdown passes in the last two weeks. Kelly plans to take the quarterback situation day-by-day with Vick improving.

Fantasy Tip: Foles has definitely played well enough to be considered for the starting gig even when Vick is healthy enough to return, but it'll be up to Kelly when that time comes. For now, consider Foles a good bye-week filler or midrange No. 1 QB with the right matchup.

Eagles | Nick Foles not named long-term starter

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 11:17:15 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said QB Nick Foles is the starting quarterback for now, but he declined to name him the team's long-term starter with QB Michael Vick (hamstring) still injured. Kelly refuses to place a timetable on Vick's return to action. Kelly said Vick is still sore and won't practice Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Vick is a slow healer, and with Foles performing the way he did in Week 9, the Eagles are probably not in a rush to bring him back as the starter. Foles is a nice bye week filler at the QB position and should be a popular waiver wire addition for those that are hurting at the position this week.

Eagles | Nick Foles to start

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 09:22:21 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles have named QB Nick Foles (concussion) as the starting quarterback in Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders. QB Matt Barkley will serve as the backup. QB Michael Vick (hamstring) will not practice this week and won't be available Sunday, Nov. 3. "One of the good things about practicing on Tuesday is you can get your eyes on people who have been out. Nick did a really good job and Nick will be our starting quarterback this week," head coach Chip Kelly said. Kelly also said he'll make a determination on the quarterback position on a weekly basis moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Foles makes for a low-end QB1 this weekend mainly as a bye week filler or if you own Vick. The QB situation in Philly will likely come down to who is the healthiest over the next few weeks. Foles should see at least a few more starts with Vick out.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick (hamstring) was on the field with his helmet Tuesday, Oct. 29, but he's not expected to play in Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders. Vick's hamstring injury isn't believed to be as serious as his original strain, according to league sources. He'll be evaluated on a weekly basis.

Fantasy Tip: Vick will not play this weekend and may not be back for several weeks after that. Nick Foles (concussion) looks like he has a solid chance to return to the starting job against the Raiders after he practiced Tuesday. Foles is a decent bye week filler.
