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
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.
