QB - CHI
Week 3 Outlook
Nick Foles (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Week 1's matchup versus the Rams.
Foles will serve as the Bears' No. 3 QB this season, behind Andy Dalton and rookie Justin Fields. It would take injuries to both of them for Foles to be on the fantasy radar, unless he were to be traded to a QB-needy team that allowed him to start.
Nick Foles threw for 142 yards on Saturday night, completing 10/13 of his throws while also throwing for two touchdowns.
While he may initially be slotting in as the Bears QB3, Foles has certainly showcased his talents enough to warrant some trade talk from around the league. Teams in need of a QB should see that Foles is a high quality backup that can start games if needed. Even if Foles is moved, there's no reason to roster him unless you are in a deep SuperFlex league.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Bears are having a difficult time moving backup QB Nick Foles.
Bears traded up to snag Justin Fields as their franchise QB. After signing Andy Dalton during the offseason, that leaves Nick Foles the odd-man out. His current contract is making it very difficult for the Bears to move him. He has $4M guaranteed in 2021 and $5M guaranteed in 2022. There was five QB's taken in the first round and not many QB-needy teams left. The Bears will have to do some convincing and negotiating to try to move Foles this offseason.
Bears' QB Nick Foles (hip) is officially active for Sunday's Week 13 matchup against the Lions. He is expected to backup starter Mitchell Trubisky.
Foles (hip) is officially active, but will backup starter Mitchell Trubisky for Week 13. The 31-year-old QB has thrown for 1,852 yards and a 10:8 TD:INT ratio over eight games this season. Foles will head back to a reserve role and should only be rostered in Two-QB/Superflex league formats.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) is expected to play in Week 13.
While Foles is expected to play through his hip injury in Sunday's matchup with the Lions, he will be in a reserve role if he is indeed active. Mitchell Trubisky is slated to start. Trubisky is 3-1 as the Bears' starter this season while Foles is 2-5. Trubisky has also thrown for nine touchdowns in those four starts while Foles has thrown for 10 scores in seven. Trubisky has an excellent matchup with the Lions this week, a team he historically plays uber-well against. He's thrown for three touchdowns in each of his past four games against them with a pair of 300+ yard outings in that period. In those four games, Trubisky is 4-0 and 4-2 overall in his career versus Detroit. If Trubiksy played against the Lions every week, Ryan Pace would look like a genius.
