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.

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.
