The whole Eagles offense was in a funk Week 4 against the 49ers. That stuff happens. What shouldn't be missed here is that Foles had been averaging 326 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2014 prior to the game. The Rams aren't playing nearly as well as originally predicted so a bounce-back performance from the Philadelphia gunslinger is very probable.
As I had told you last week, Romo was ready for a breakout game against the Saints. He tossed 3 touchdowns and added 262 passing yards, his best performance by far for the season. But don't get too excited just yet. He has to go against the Texans in Week 5 which will be a much truer test if the Dallas quarterback is close to being back to his old-self or if Week 4 was more of a result of the right matchup.

The Rams are 11th against fantasy quarterbacks this year, but I would not allow one bad game to sour you on the Eagles offense.
The Texans are 8th against fantasy quarterbacks and the Cowboys have transformed into a running team this year. Romo has QB2 value this week.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Rams are actually stingy against the pass but the overall matchup does bode well.
Texans D is OK against the pass but he's at home and they're rolling so could be worth a shot.
