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 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.
