When asked about the Eagles possibly coveting Marcus Mariota, Nick Foles stated "Foles
“I just don’t think about it,” Foles said Thursday in an appearance on "Pro Football Talk Live" on NBC Radio. “It’s definitely going to be brought up. It’s been brought to my attention many times, because that’s just part of it. You’re going to have family members see it; you’re going to be asked about it. I haven’t heard anything otherwise. I expect to be back in Philly and leading my teammates.” (Source: ESPN)
Fantasy Impact: Foles is saying the right things, and seems to have taken the right frame of mind on the issue, as there is a near-zero chance the Eagles burn through nearly their entire draft capital to acquire Chip Kelly's former protege. Foles is going to be a divisive name in fantasy circles during 2015 drafts, as he offers QB1 upside in the Eagles warp-speed offense, but comes with massive downside as well.
Sources are citing several teams that could be interested in Eagles QB Nick Foles, including the Rams, Texans, and Titans. (Source: NJ.com)
Fantasy Impact: Foles would be an instant upgrade for those teams, and several others inside the top 5. It wouldn't be surprising to see Foles dealt to give the Eagles ammunition to move up and reunite Chip Kelly with the QB he recruited in college, Marcus Mariota.
According to "NFL sources" speculate that Chip Kelly will try and move up to take the highly touted Oregon QB Marcus Mariota if he declares for the 2015 NFL draft. (Source: SportsWorldReport.com)
Fantasy Impact: While Foles is coming off a season shortened by injury, and blemished by ineffectiveness the odds of the Eagles trading into the high part of the first round are slim to none. Foles is in the final year of his contract, and while there is a near zero chance that the Eagles will draft Marcus Mariota, there is a much better chance of the Eagles deciding to bring in a QB in the early rounds of the draft.
Eagles' QB Nick Foles received good news during his 4-week CT scan follow-up appointment on Friday. The collarbone has been healing normally and at this rate he'll be cleared to take hits in two to four weeks. (Source: Philadelphia Daily News)
Fantasy Impact: The main question here is whether Foles would get the starting job upon his return. That depends on whether fellow QB Mark Sanchez can keep up his incredible play because, as of right now, Foles will more than likely be holding a clipboard when he returns. Sanchez was practically flawless against Dallas on Thanksgiving and he seems to be more comfortable in the offense. The offense goes at an even faster pace with Sanchez under center. The only advantage Foles has is that he can throw farther and has better deep-ball accuracy and his near-perfect 2013 shows how well Foles can play at his best.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Foles is out six to eight weeks after suffering a broken collarbone during Sunday's win over the Houston Texans. An MRI revealed that no surgery was necessary, according to a source informed of his test results. (Source: NFL.com)
Fantasy Impact: There are only 8 Weeks left in the Eagles schedule so it is safe to drop Foles in any season long leagues and spend some of your Waiver Wire dollars on Mark Sanchez who looked right at home in the offense after taking over for the injured Foles.
Nick Foles completed 36 of 62 attempts for 411 yards for 2 TDs and 2 INTs in the Eagles loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, October 26th 2014 in Glendale, Arizona. (Source: NFL.com)
Fantasy Impact: Foles had a good fantasy stat line, but his 2 INTs proved costly to the Eagles chances of winning the game. He was erratic most of the day but he did complete a deep 54 yard TD pass to Jeremy Maclin in the 4th quarter. Foles also drove the team down the field at the end of the game to give the Eagles a chance to win the game but the drive came up just short when rookie Jordan Matthews caught the potential game winner just out of bounds in the end zone.
Since taking over for Michael Vick last year, Nick Foles is now 13-3 as the Eagles starting QB. With a 5-1 record so far this season he looks to pick up another win on the road against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 8.
Fantasy Impact: Even though Foles stats so far in 2014 have been just average at best with 1,628 passing yards, 10 touchdowns, and 7 Interceptions, he has been very confident late in games and ended up leading the Eagles to comeback victories in the Eagles first 3 games this season.
Eagles' QB Nick Foles completed 24-of-37 for 207 yards, a couple touchdowns, one pick, and a lost fumble in the team's close victory against St. Louis in Week 5.
Fantasy Impact: Foles once again displayed inaccuracy and threw many passes without setting his feet since he was under pressure more than he'd like. Despite how much worse he is than last season, he is still putting up good numbers overall season, especially through the first three weeks of the season. He remains startable most weeks and has the look of a low-end QB1 against the Giants in Week 6.
Eagles QB Nick Foles had a rough outing in Week 4 against San Francisco. Foles completed 21 of 43 pass attempts for 195 yards and 2 INTs. The entire Eagles offense sputtered against the 49ers, putting up only 213 total yards.
Fantasy Impact: Foles has a much more favorable matchup in Week 5 at home against the Rams. Consider this subpar performance an aberration and continue to regard Foles as a QB1 in most leagues.
QB Nick Foles looked much better in his Week 3 win than he did the first few weeks. Foles looked more decisive and aware, as he passed the 300 yard passing mark for the third straight game. (Source: Philly.com)
Fantasy Impact: Foles got clobbered by Washington DT Chris Baker, but got back up and finished the game, leading the Eagles on a 10-0 run after the brawl. Foles might be banged up a little bit, but his improved play is encouraging for both the 3-0 Eagles and fantasy owners.
Despite the Eagles victory last night against the Colts, the offense has yet to click on all cylinders as Nick Foles and receivers Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper missed several opportunities to connect. Cooper caught only 1 pass for 8 yards. (Source: Mike Sielski)
Fantasy Impact: The question is alive as to how much the Eagles and Foles miss big play WR Desean Jackson. Luckily, Darren Sproles and Zach Ertz have been able to step in and contribute big plays for the offense this season.
Nick Foles will look to bounce back in Week 2 from a shaky start in Week 1, where he was missing receivers all over the field. The Jaguars were getting pressure, but Foles wasn't his same self. (Source: Philly.com)
Fantasy Impact: Foles will have a much tougher test in Week 2 on Monday Night Football against the Colts. However, it looks to be more of a shootout type game, which is something that Foles excels in. As long as his final stats reflect that of an NFL starter, your fantasy team should stay the course and continue to start him.
Nick Foles had two fumbles and one interception in the first half as the Eagles' offense failed to put any points on the board. But it was a tale of two halves as the Eagles' offense rebounded in the second half starting with a long Sproles' TD run. Foles finished strong with TD passes to Jeremy Maclin and Zach Ertz as he completed the game 27 of 45 with 322 yards. (Source: Zach Berman)
Fantasy Impact: Foles was pressured in the first half and didn't appear quite like his 2013 self, but was able to pull it together in the second half after some apparent half-time adjustments.
ESPN's Sal Paolantonio stated that Nick Foles has more swagger entering the 2014 season. He is more confident and relaxed as he doesn't have the competition of Michael Vick hanging over his head. (Source: Sal Paolantonio)
Fantasy Impact: Last year Foles started 10 games and ended the season with 27 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Now Foles is the guy in Philadelphia and can prepare as such right from the get go. The Eagles offense is looking even faster then last year and Foles should have no problem moving the ball and being a top fantasy QB option.
