Fantasy Team Advice
 
Quite possibly our biggest sleeper pick of 2014. To make sure you know we aren't crazy, Big Ben was ranked outside our top 20 last year, but for 2014 with a new uptempo, no huddle offense, we are buying big time on Roethlisberger, especially given his late round ADP. Grab him in the final rounds of all drafts this year, as he could easily be your starter by week 3
  
Chet Gresham

Foles is a tough call to make this season. His numbers last year were amazing, but his TD to turnover ratio will be impossible to repeat. DeSean Jackson is gone, but Jeremy Maclin is back and Zach Ertz should take a step forward. Add to that Kelly's offense and tactics to keep defenses off balance should keep Foles from regressing too badly.
The Steelers were top 10 in passing attempts last season and they should continue this year. Roethlisberger was a Top-5 fantasy QB toward the end of last year and I think that he and Todd Haley are finally on the same page.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Foles was the 11th ranked fantasy quarterback, despite starting only 10 games, but I am curious if a sophomore slump is in store. I cannot see him throwing just two interceptions for a second consecutive year. The Eagles also have to figure out how to replace the production of departed WR DeSean Jackson. They added WR Jordan Matthews and WR Josh Huff in the draft, but they will need to be able to contribute right away. A weak receiving core could prevent Foles from being an elite fantasy option, although he should still be very good.
Big Ben had a great fantasy season last year. He threw for 4,261yards, 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, but was still only the 12th ranked fantasy quarterback. This is the reason you do not need to take a quarterback in the first or second round. Big Ben is a terrific fantasy option, there are just too many guys to put everyone in the Top 10.

Shook off rough start vs. JAC in W1 to clock top 5 fantasy QB line - Fast-paced offense should keep him in QB1 mix

While I really don't see Foles putting in the type of Touchdown : Interception numbers that he did last year (an almost impossible feat), Chip Kelly has said that he wants to utilize the playbook much more than the Eagles did in 2013. Considering Foles late-season grasp of the offense in which he went for 8 multi-touchdown games in his last 9 while totaling 23 overall down that stretch, you have to love his potential. And the fact that their offense is more balanced and much improved over last season, Foles should be able to produce outstanding numbers. Last year he put up a positive 0.076 FFLockerRoom True Proficiency Game Average. http://fflockerroom.com/2014/07/25/2014-fantasy-football-draft-preparation-quarterback-proficiency/

Inhuman TD:INT rate impossible to repeat, shaky receiving corps with Maclin as the WR1.
Top 10 upside to be had in the 10th round.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He has the real potential to put up over 30 TDs in Kelly's offense. He nearly did 30 TDs and he did not play 3 games in 2013.
He is fully capable of having 4,000+ yard seasons and nearly 30 TDs. He is a solid back-up QB selection.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
He’s got too good of weapons, too good of an Offensive Line and too good of a coach to have a sophomore slump. Philly went out and acquired Sproles and Matthews with the departure of DeSean Jackson. Jeremy Maclin has participated in every minicamp and OTA and looks to be fully healed from his ACL injury – if he remains healthy for 16 games, he’ll be a Top 25 WR. Riley Cooper found a way to get 835 Receiving Yards last year with the help of DeSeasn Jackson drawing extra coverage. Jordan Matthews, who’s been nothing less than stellar so far, will take over the WR2 sooner rather than later. Foles averaged 11.7 passes per TD (Peyton averaged 11.9 passes per TD) last season while throwing the ball a NFL 27th ranked 315 times for 27 TDs and 2 INTs.
The departure of WR2 Emmanuel Sanders will definitely not help Big Ben, however, Pittsburgh has a lot of faith in 2nd year Speedy WR Markus Wheaton. Pittsburgh also acquired Lance Moore who will be their WR3. Antonio Brown is coming off a successful year in OC Todd Haley’s hurry up offense, which they look to implement again this season while using Le’Veon Bell as an every down back. This hurry-up offense will only help Pittsburgh’s questionable offensive line. WR2 Markus Wheaton is Pittsburgh’s biggest WR standing at 5’11/180 with Antonio Brown standing at 5’10/186 and Lance Moore at 5’9/190. This should make Heath “Healthy” Miller, 6’5/256, a lock for 10+ TD’s and a main Red Zone Target.

Won't repeat freakish 2013 efficiency but can be near-elite even with regression.
Career highs in attempts and completions last year. Bargain buy.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Foles was a beast in Philly last year. His system and weapons are there, but was he a one year wonder?
Big Ben can still sling it and he looked dominant in spurts last year. If the Steelers can add another weapon he should be a solid QB1 again.

This is going to be a bit high for most, but the guy was on pace for roughly 40TDs, 3INTs, 4,000 yards and 200 rushing yards last year through 11 games. He is the real deal if you ask me, and he is the kind of player that wins a league if you land the pick. If he disappoints, well, he still likely earns his ADP (if healthy).
